Doctor Who Drabble: A Charming Woman

Title: A Charming Woman
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Tenth Doctor, Reinette.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 103: Gracious / Ungrateful at dw100.
Spoilers: The Girl In The Fireplace
Summary: From child to woman in the space of a few minutes; the Doctor is flummoxed.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters

As a young girl, Reinette was innocent, gentle, full of curiosity and wonder. As a grown woman, she’s lovely, gracious, charming, but still as curious as ever, though now with a quick wit and sharp intellect to go with her other attributes.

The seemingly sudden transformation from child to woman, at least from the Doctor’s perspective, is unsettling although it probably shouldn’t be. It’s not the first time he’s met the same person at different stages of their lives, but the period between meetings is usually longer than a few minutes.

Time here has been accelerated. It’s really rather confounding.

The End
