Doctor Who Drabble: Volcano Day

Title: Volcano Day
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Donna Noble, the Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 182: Acid Test at dw100.
Spoilers: The Runaway Bride, The Fires Of Pompeii.
Summary: Donna tests her own mettle.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Thanks to her mother always putting her down, Donna had grown up doubting herself, always thinking she wasn’t good enough. Her grandfather had done everything he could to bolster her confidence, and she loved him for that, among other things, but her mother’s criticisms never let up.

Marrying Lance had seemed like a triumph, until she’d learned the truth; he’d never loved her, and her self-confidence had suffered another body blow.

This was her acid test, here in Pompeii on Volcano Day. She had to stand up to the Doctor, make him listen to her.

“You can’t just leave them!”

The End
