Chapter 579: Off Course
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 522: Wilderness at dw100.

Thirteenth Doctor, OFC.

Summary: The Doctor's new companion isn't impressed with where she's been taken.

“You mean to say we’re lost in this… wilderness?” The Doctor had promised her adventure, the chance to see things, people, and places no other twenty-first century human ever had, but this wasn’t what Sara had signed up for. She was a city girl, she’d expected civilisation, culture, alien fashions, planet-sized shopping malls, not this tangled forest in the middle of nowhere.

“Not lost,” the Doctor insisted. “Just not quite where we’re supposed to be. It’ll be fine though. Smell that fresh air. And the trees! Wonderful things, trees. Every planet should have them.”

“I’m really not dressed for this.”
