Doctor Who Drabble: Taking A Break

Title: Taking A Break
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Martha Jones, Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 365: Spontaneous at dw100.
Spoilers: Smith and Jones.
Summary: Martha jumps at the chance to take a break from her responsibilities.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Martha has never considered herself particularly spontaneous; she’s the eldest daughter, the problem solver, the mediator. Sometimes she feels more like the parent, trying to sort everyone out and keep the peace.

Maybe that’s why, when the Doctor asks her to go on a trip with him, she hardly hesitates at all. Doesn’t she deserve a break from being responsible and reliable? Doesn’t she deserve a bit of time to do what she wants instead of spending all her time juggling her medical studies and her family?

Besides, he can travel in time; she’ll be back before anyone misses her.

The End


That's how Martha is (I wish there'd have been more seasons with her). :)
Me too, she was a great character, but she needed to take a step back and be with her family, it was a natural resolution to her arc, and at least she didn't get killed off.

Thank you!
