The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 47: Haunted By Fear
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 041: haunted at dw100.

Spoilers: The God Complex.

Summary: It’s like a maze, haunted by fear and something else.

Not everyone is haunted by ghosts. For some it’s the past that fills them with terror, or the future, or seemingly innocuous things that wouldn’t bother most people. Like socks, or balloons, or having their photo taken. Sometimes it’s that scary monster you saw in an old horror movie you shouldn’t have been watching when you were a kid, the one that gave you nightmares for months afterwards.

The hotel is vast, like a constantly shifting maze, and every one of its many rooms contains someone’s worst fear.

But something even more terrifying stalks the corridors, and there’s no escape.

The End
