Chapter 528: Obscurity
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 473: Obscure / Obscurity at dw100.

Summary: Sometimes the Doctor wishes he wasn't so well known.

There were times the Doctor wished he could simply fade away into obscurity, so that no matter what he did or where he went, his reputation wouldn’t get there before him.

The Doctor, or the Oncoming Storm, Last of the Time Lords, names that could strike fear into the hearts of his enemies but were just as likely to inspire rage and a desire for retribution. How much nicer it might be to be anonymous, to live quietly somewhere nobody knew his identity.

He’d even tried a few times, but it never lasted. He was needed; timelines didn’t fix themselves.
