The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 481: Campfire Tales
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 431: Fire at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor is enjoying an evening of storytelling with some new friends.

There’s something especially companionable about sitting around a blazing campfire, eating hot soup and telling each other stories. The Tallans are excellent storytellers.

Lacking much in the way of a written language and with nothing very suitable to write on anyway except for the occasional flat, carefully smoothed rock, they pass down their traditions and knowledge of past events in the form of sagas detailing heroic quests, brave deeds, triumph over various dangers…

The Doctor’s visit to their world, and the tales he’s telling them, will no doubt be passed down through the generations too, another page in their history.
