Characters: Ninth Doctor.
Written For: Challenge 478: Spectacular at dw100.
Spoilers: The End of the World.
Summary: Earth’s sun is about to go nova.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.
There are few sights more spectacular than a star going nova, and it’s a sight the Doctor has seen more than a few times on his travels, but this time there’s an added poignancy. This isn’t just any old star, it’s Sol, the sun that’s nourished and nurtured earth for billions of years, and it’s about to explode in fiery glory, taking the entire solar system with it.
Earth, the Doctor’s favourite little backwater planet, the birthplace of humanity; its people will continue, scattered throughout the universe, but the planet itself will soon be nothing but cinders.
Nothing lasts forever.
