A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive
Be Afraid by vegetables [ - ]
Summary: This is the story of another Thirteenth Doctor, who had the same face and who lived in a darker world. Who fought Christian baboons and human-brained checkout machines, and did everything she could to keep hope alive in a child. And it’s the story of something that all of us run from, more ancient and nameless than even the Doctor could be. Something that logic could never fight, and which only a story could withstand. This is the story of a Doctor who stood against it. And this is the story of how that Doctor won.

The Shape of the Dalek by vegetables [Reviews - 1]
Nobody’s scared of the Daleks, on the city in space that’s called Edinburgh Four. They’re strange and colourful and they look completely ridiculous, and they’ve now been around for a very long time indeed. So perhaps there’s no harm, in listening to what they have to say. Maybe it’d be better to give them the chance to exterminate. They built lasers and spaceships and reality-warping guns. But all they had to do was change the way they spoke.
