Doctor Who Drabble: Bright Sparks

Title: Bright Sparks

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Eleven, Amy.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 017 – Insect at dw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Amy witnesses a beautiful sight.

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







The planet’s night, so shrouded by cloud that not a single star is visible, is nevertheless lit by billions of tiny sparks in every colour imaginable; they zip through the air like tiny shooting stars, leaving trails of light in their wake. It’s a sight so amazing that Amy doesn’t realise she’s holding her breath until she starts feeling light-headed.



“It’s beautiful! What are they?”



“Insects, like fireflies but more complex. Each colour is a different species; they swarm on the darkest night of the year to find mates and breed. It’s one of the greatest spectacles in the universe.”



The End
