Characters: Clara, Twelfth Doctor.
Written For: Challenge 443: Balance at dw100.
Spoilers: Mummy on the Orient Express.
Summary: Clara makes up her mind to quit travelling with the Doctor.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.
Achieving some kind of balance in her life was causing Clara no end of problems; this new incarnation of the Doctor seemed unable to understand the concept of her having a personal life, something other than travelling with him whenever he wanted her company.
She had a job, and a boyfriend, but the way the Doctor behaved it was as if he considered such things a personal inconvenience. He’d show up, any time of the day or night, expecting her to drop everything and go with him.
Something had to change; she’d take one last trip then she was done.
