The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 205: All The Same
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 186: Ennui at dw100.

Spoilers: The Snowmen.

Summary: The Doctor just wants to be left alone.

Ennui is a sickness, and the Doctor has a bad case of it. For very nearly a thousand years he’s been running around doing everything he can to save the universe from itself only to finally come to the inescapable conclusion that the universe simply doesn’t care. If that’s the case, then why should he?

Well, he shouldn’t, and doesn’t; he’s well out of the Saving the Universe business. Why can’t everyone go away and let him mope in peace? He’s had enough, and if people want to accuse him of apathy, so be it.

It’s all the same anyway.

The End
