The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 149: Not Fair
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 132: Fair at dw100.

Spoilers: Journey’s End.

Summary: The universe is a lot of things, but fair isn’t one of them.

It isn’t fair, but when has the universe ever been fair? It’s big and complex and full of as many horrors as there are wonders, but fair has never been an adjective the Doctor would use to describe it. Even Time Lords are too insignificant to rate any special treatment from the immensity that is the universe, so what chance does an accidental human Time Lord metacrisis have?

None whatsoever.

The only thing the Doctor can do for Donna now is wipe her mind clean of all her memories of their travels, everything she’s seen and done.

It isn’t fair.

The End
