Doctor Who Drabble: Too Silent

Title: Too Silent
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 102: Silence at dw100.
Spoilers: Silence In The Library.
Summary: The library should be full of people, but instead it stands silent and empty.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

It’s the biggest library in the universe, the biggest that has ever existed anywhere, and it takes up a whole planet; millions of rooms filled with endless shelves, and books beyond counting. They’re the real thing, tangible volumes with paper pages, all collected together, sorted by year of publication and then by subject.

It’s a resource used by billions, and yet it’s unaccountably empty. Oh, there are books everywhere, but where are the readers? The place should be teeming with people, echoing to the sound of footsteps and rustling pages, but instead there’s only silence.

Something is very wrong here.

The End
