The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 136: Pandorica
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 119: Open And Closed at dw100.

Spoilers: The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang.

Summary: Some doors are designed as traps, letting you in with no way to get out. Unless you’re the Doctor.

Doors let people in and out, or sometimes just in. You can’t always trust doors; some only go one way, and then you’re trapped with no way out.

The Pandorica is like that; it’s a prison, designed to keep someone in; to get out you need outside help, which the Doctor has. All it took was a bit of time-hopping by his future self.

Rory opens the Pandorica to let the Doctor out, and when it closes again, Amy is inside. It’s meant to be the perfect prison; now it’s going to save a life, and maybe the whole universe.
