Doctor Who Drabble: Rewritten

Title: Rewritten
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: River Song, Eleventh Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 241: Martyr at dw100.
Spoilers: The Wedding Of River Song.
Summary: River is not going to let the Doctor sacrifice himself.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Instead of trying to get away, the Doctor walks towards River, knowing what’s coming. She knows it too, and it terrifies her, and yet he seems completely unafraid, not trying to get away, just standing there ready to sacrifice himself, like a martyr for some cause perhaps nobody can fully understand.

“I can’t stop it.”

“You’re not supposed to. This has to happen.”

She begs him to run, but he refuses; he already tried that. Didn’t work.

“This is inevitable, a fixed point.”

Not on River’s watch, it isn’t. Fixed points can be rewritten. She fires, repeatedly, and…

“Hello, sweetie.”

The End
