Doctor Who Drabble: Fixed Point

Title: Fixed Point
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Daleks.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 246: Genesis at dw100.
Spoilers: Genesis of the Daleks.
Summary: The Doctor could not halt or divert the Daleks’ creation.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

There’s a beginning for all living things, for good or ill. No creature simply appears; it must evolve gradually, from a single cell into something far more complex. Or, it must be created.

In some cases, its genesis might be a combination of both.

The Doctor was sent to Skaro on a mission; avert the creation of the Daleks, or ensure that they evolved as less aggressive and xenophobic creatures.

He failed in both respects; perhaps their creation was a fixed point, but he had to believe that despite their destructive tendencies, some good might come out of their existence.

The End
