Doctor Who Drabble: Candle In The Dark

Title: Candle In The Dark
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 136: Candle at dw100.
Spoilers: The Runaway Bride
Summary: After losing Rose, the Doctor has lost hope.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Nothing has felt right to the Doctor since Rose was sucked into another dimension. Everything’s drab, grey, lifeless, and he’s weighed down by a crushing sense of loss. There’s little point to anything, he’s hollowed out inside, his hearts beat too slowly, and he half expects to crumble into dust.

It’s been a long time since he last felt so devoid of hope.

Then a woman appears in the TARDIS, all red hair and fury, and against his will he’s swept into another adventure. Donna Noble, his candle in the darkness. Without even trying, she restores his will to live.

The End
