Clint's not entirely sure how Oswin's gained access to the car she has -- a sturdy four-door sedan.

Whichever way that happened, she has a set of keys and hasn't wrecked it yet. Clint's given it a look-over, including pulling out out of its parking spot and re-parking it in the middle of the lane, and now he's sitting in the passenger seat.

He hands Oswin the keys once she's buckled in.

Clint is a brave, brave man. The narration would just like this noted, as Oswin takes the keys with the sort of grin one usually reserves for surprise birthday parties.

It's not even a supercar, Oswin.

"Okay, so... what's this thing?" She asks, with a hand on the gear stick.

Probably not the most reassuring question of ever.

She cranes her neck to peer at it awkwardly.

"Yep." She's starting to reconsider her choice of cars - this seems a lot more complicated than previous cars she has encountered. However, she's not exactly one to back down from a challenge, so. This car's going to be driven, come hell or high water (or, more importantly, Daleks).

"... I'm definitely in favor of not squishing." She replies, sounding a bit dubious and a tiiiiiiiiiiiny bit freaked out because how is squishing getting into the equation when they aren't even moving yet?

But she's an obedient slightly-freaked-out-space-girl, and puts the keys far away from the ignition.

There's a startled squeak (even with the warning) when the chair moves, but she obligingly tests out the pedals and lets him know when she can actually push them all the way down. Whilst holding on to the wheel for dear life because evidently the chairs can slide around in these things, who knew?

"Awful lot of buttons and things to get this machine moving." She observes - sure she's used to things like hacking computers being complicated, but just getting about? Good grief.

She has gotten herself buckled back in (while she may not know much, she remembers what she does know) and turns the ignition.

Okay, the somewhat goofy grin is back, because engine noises are cool. Don't even say they're not, she'll call you a liar to your face.

And then she squeaks again when the engine roars, because that's not the brake pedal.

"Right." She tries to peer down at them again, but now she's too close to the dash to get a good look at her feet without bending very awkwardly indeed. "I... knew that. Sort of."

Lies.

Okay, so this is a new step. She wasn't sure what all the mirrors were about, really, but it seems they do have a purpose other than being extra shiny.

It takes a bit of fiddling to get them aligned according to his orders, but she's stubborn.

"Alright, check. Not for checking one's lipstick, then?"

She's... probably not serious there.

souffle_girlek: (D You must be joking)
From: [personal profile] souffle_girlek
She looks a bit horrified at this as she adjusts the mirror as ordered.

"I was joking!" She protests, clearly expecting him to say the same thing. Just. No. Really?

souffle_girlek: (D I'm sorry whut?)
From: [personal profile] souffle_girlek
"Yes." She does actually pay attention through his instructions on putting the car into first gear, then slowly giving the engine more gas while letting off the clutch. It sounds easy enough.

Which is why she's utterly confounded when the engine jerks to a halt as she's attempting the maneuver, after inching forward less than half a foot.

"Oh my stars. Did I kill it?"

The engine roars back to life, and Oswin's got a determined scowl on her face. If this machine thinks it's going to beat her, it's going to have a problem. From what she can tell, the engine died because she was too cautious with the gas.

Well. Change of plan.

The car lurches forward like a startled jackrabbit as she definitely manages to not make the same mistake twice, the wheels squealing and leaving black rubber behind.

"Right, right, less gas, I can do that, definitely less with the gas..." She still hasn't ever figured out how she showed here not all... Dalek-y, but she's learning right now that this body has perfectly functioning adrenal glands. The adrenalin (of going all of ten miles an hour now) is powering her current babble.

She gives him a look (briefly) because it's not that funny. Really. And she manages to shift without horribly stalling - she's still erring on the side of giving too much gas, so the engine revs uselessly mid-shift and lurches a bit once she gets it engaged again.

"There. Could've been smoother, but we're not crashed, so win!"

"You're the one that got in the car with me, I don't think you have much room to complain." She points out dryly.
