Author's Notes:
Written for Challenge 668: Coward at dw100.

Twelfth Doctor.

Summary: There are more ways to deal with trouble than by fighting.

“You are a coward!”

The Doctor looked around. “Me? No I’m not! I’ve faced danger more times than you’ve had hot dinners.”

“Then why will you not fight alongside us to save our homes and families?”

“Because fighting should be a last resort. When there’s fighting, too many people get hurt, or even killed.”

“We are willing to sacrifice our lives to save our people!”

“But wouldn’t your people be a whole lot happier if they didn’t have to lose their fathers, their husbands, their sons? Let’s try this my way first. If it doesn’t work, then we can fight.”

The End
