Author's Notes:
Written for Challenge 666: Unravel at dw100.

Fourth Doctor.

Summary: The Doctor makes a great sacrifice.

The Doctor hates to do this, but he can’t see any other option. The tunnels are a veritable labyrinth, and brilliant though he undoubtedly is, keeping track of the route he takes is going to be impossible. He can’t afford to get lost down here; he may never find his way out again!

“Sorry about this,” he mutters as he firmly ties the yarn end to a protruding rock. “Your sacrifice is appreciated.”

He and his scarf have been through a lot together, but as he sets off, unravelling it behind him, he knows it’s never been a greater asset.
