Doctor Who Drabble: Out West

Title: Out West
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Eleventh Doctor, Susan.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 146: Riding at dw100.
Spoilers: A Town Called Mercy.
Summary: Susan the horse is quite a character!
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

The Doctor likes horses, they have a lot of common sense; he knows because he speaks horse. It’s a useful skill. He can ride too, which is fortunate, because out West, if you need to get somewhere quickly, horseback is the only way to travel.

Needing to track the gunslinger, he borrows a horse and rides out of town. Susan, as the horse prefers to be called, is an excellent mount, fast and sure-footed, intelligent, and has quite a mouth on him. The Doctor laughs to himself. The preacher would blush scarlet if he knew what his horse was saying.

The End


LOL I love horses too.

great drabble
I thought Susan the horse was an excellent character!

Thank you!

Was that suppose to be a coincidence that the horse has the same name as the Doctor's granddaughter?
I have no idea, but it was a cute namecheck for fans of the show.

Thank you!

The Doctor could have mentioned Arthur the horse.:)
He could indeed. I think Arthur and Susan should get together as a gay horse couple ;)

I wasn't aware about that in regards to Arthur.
Well, I don't think Arthur was, but I just thought they'd make a nice couple ;)

Yeah. They should of met.:)
We never really see what happens to Susan, so maybe the Doctor takes him away in the TARDIS to a world where horses are free to make their own life choices. Maybe Arthur is already there ;)

I would of liked to have seen that.

We never knew the name of the horse Twelve rode in "Deep Breath".
No, we didn't! Perhaps Twelve was too out of it then,having just regenerated, to talk to the horse so he never found out.

He could still go back and ask.

Maybe that horse is in the vault?.:)
LOL! That would be a surprise nobody would be expecting!

I still think it's Missy in there.

You were right. I thought the obvious was not going to be the case but instead it was.

Double psych!
