The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 451: Fractured
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 401: Fracture at dw100.

Spoilers: Father’s Day.

Summary: The Doctor can’t blame Rose; this is his fault as much as hers.

The Doctor understands why Rose did it. Because her father had died when she was a baby she’d never had the chance to know him except through the stories her mother told her. She just wanted the chance to connect with him, see for herself the kind of man he was, fill in a tiny part of the gap his death had left in her life.

She wasn’t supposed to save him, and perhaps this is really the Doctor’s fault more than it is Rose’s, but Pete Tyler being alive has changed the past too much, and time has fractured…
