Two More Defaulted

Per this post, we needed to hear from the following people within 24 hours:


Unfortunately, we've heard from neither of you, and are forced to declare you both in default. This means you're both ineligible for participation in future femme_fic ficathons. (And for participation in any ficathons I run personally in the future as well, might I add.)

We're contacting backup writers from all the wonderful sources that you guys have given us already. Thank you so much to everyone who has offered to help us out!

Rating: R

Spoilers: general knowledge through TW S1 and DW S3/29
Word Count: 7800
Written For: redshoeson
Author's Notes: I did obsessive research that I hope a) doesn't take over the storytelling, and b) is generally accurate. To any Nepali readers (or readers who are familiar with Nepal), I apologise in advance for any errors I may have made with names, geography, climate, language, customs, etc. Please do let me know if you find something wrong so that I can modify accordingly. I was also unable, running so late, to get the story Britpicked, and so apologise for any errors in that realm. Flash-beta thanks to mtgat and wiliqueen. Hopefully I've not introduced additional mistakes following their excellent suggestions.
Prompt: The Hound of the Baskervilles, Torchwood-style. Bonus points if Suzie had something to do with it.
Summary: Torchwood Three, minus Jack, is sent on a "wild goose chase to the Himalayas" by Harold Saxon. While searching for his MacGuffin they actually stumble across an alien creature.
