Stories

nine times the doctor fought in the time war, and three more times he also did by lurking_latinist [Reviews - 0]
Here is a very short story from the War: “If the canned mutants don’t get you, the canned rations will,” said one of the old soldiers to one of the new recruits. She’d been a new recruit herself the day before yesterday, but in her first battle her timeline had been injured. When the medics had reset it, they’d fixed it so she joined up in her youth, giving the army seven hundred more years of her service. Here are some more stories from the War:

Somewhere to Belong by lurking_latinist [Reviews - 0]
The Doctor's backstory is always in flux. Even parts of this fic are in flux. Sometimes Susan's grandmother was called Patience. Sometimes Susan was the granddaughter of the Other Founder, and met the Doctor on old Gallifrey. Sometimes she was respectably born, and sometimes she was respectably Loomed. Sometimes—and this is one of those times—Susan's mother was a woman who doesn't exist yet, a soldier-turned-adventurer called Jenny. Well, why not?

‘He was afraid, afraid of going power mad. He was so scared of what he might become that he wouldn’t do what needed to be done.
He refused to plan, refused to anticipate. He’d never consider a pre-emptive strike against evil because he was too scared of even being capable of planning one. People were dying because I didn’t know what I was doing.... So I had to make a change.’ (Kate Orman, The Room with No Doors)
