Doctor Who Drabble: Life Is Mucky

Title: Life Is Mucky
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Any Doctor, Any Companion.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 151: Filth at dw100.
Spoilers: None.
Summary: Dirt is everywhere.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.





It should come as no surprise to anyone that the universe is dirty. No matter where you go, in space or in time, you can be guaranteed to encounter a certain amount of muck and filth; it’s something that can quite accurately be termed a universal truth, and yet humans always seem disappointed by it.


The Doctor’s current companion looked at their surroundings with a distasteful frown. “Somehow I always thought the future would be cleaner.”


“Dirt breeds,” the Doctor explained. “Wherever there are living organisms, there is bound to be dirt, because without dirt, there can be no life.”



The End

The Doctor is so right on this one! There is so much living in dirt... bacteria, plants, all kinds of things depend on the nutrients in dirt.

I'm just not too fond of sand...
I like sand in its place - on a beach - but there's no a lot that can grow in it, it's rather short on nutrients.

Life can't get a foothold in sterile conditions. Life and muck go together ;)

Thank you!
Great drabble.
Thank you!
