Doctor Who Drabble: Tradition

Title: Tradition
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 178: Tradition at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Where do traditions come from and what makes them so important?
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.




Tradition is a strange animal; where does it begin? Often from fear or necessity, rituals devised for protection or to give the illusion of safety. Something done or said by chance protects the fearful, so they decide that’s the key to their safety.


Every culture in the universe has its own traditions. Earth has Morris Dancers, shaking hands, and saying ‘Bless you’ when someone sneezes. The Qualf shut their eyes and turn in a circle when the sun goes down, to ensure it will rise again in the morning. It always works.


The Doctor traditionally has companions. That works too.



The End
