Doctor Who Drabble: The Dalek Way

Title: The Dalek Way

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Daleks

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 006 – Hate at dw100

Spoilers: General for everything Dalek.

Summary: Daleks aren’t completely emotionless.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Daleks, scourge of the universe. They’re cold, cruel, and deadly, determined to wipe out any living thing that isn’t a Dalek. It’s what they do, their whole reason for existing is simply to kill and keep on killing until they’re all that’s left.

They’re considered devoid of all emotion, but that’s not entirely true. They know nothing of love, mercy, kindness, sorrow, or fear, all those things and more have long been stripped away from them, but they do retain one emotion: Hate.

They hate everything, that’s what fuels them. One day, it might be what destroys them for good.

The End


unless the Doctor does it first.

great drabble.
He keeps trying, but they just keep coming back.

Thank you!
Maybe one day they'll turn that hate on themselves.
Maybe so. At least then they might exterminate themselves.

Thank you!
Sorry, maybe I'm biased, but I couldn't help drawing a parallel between the Daleks as you depicted them in your drabbles and the terrorists who killed so many people this week-end. I hope you're right and that both Daleks and fanatics are going destroy themselves for good.

I didn't intend to make it sound politic. It was just a coincidence which struck me. :)
Yeah, I hear about the terrorists, so awful. We can only hope that hate will destroy those who are doing the hating. *hugs*

Thank you
Wonderfully done! And very much the Daleks!

Thank you! Hate is the most destructive emotion there is.
