Doctor Who Drabble: Humbling Sight

Title: Humbling Sight
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 311: Edge at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Seeing the Milky Way from the outside is humbling.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

The view from the edge of the Milky Way was stunning, countless stars scattered across the vacuum of space, the spiral shape familiar from the pictures in her grandfather’s astronomy books. It looked like a Catherine Wheel on bonfire night, but frozen in place, a snapshot capturing the briefest moment in time. Donna couldn’t tear her gaze away.

“It’s magnificent,” she sighed.

“And it’s only one galaxy among many. The universe is so much bigger than you humans can imagine; trillions of galaxies, and more worlds than you would believe.”

It put things in perspective; Donna had never felt smaller

The End
