Doctor Who Drabble: Unfair Trade

Title: Unfair Trade
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Rose Tyler, Pete Tyler, the Ninth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 183: Trade at dw100.
Spoilers: Father’s Day.
Summary: Rose learns an important lesson; sometimes the price is too high.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Rose told the Doctor she just wanted to see her father, talk to him, know what he was like, because all she knew was what her mother had told her, which hadn’t exactly been complimentary.

But talking to him, she’d realised she would give anything to change the past and grow up having her dad in her life.

Risking herself to save him had been a no-brainer, but now, trapped in a church while hideous Reapers tore the world apart, she finally understood; one life for the lives of thousands wasn’t a fair trade.

She had to let him go.

The End
