Doctor Who Drabble: Run!

Title: Run!
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 189: David Bowie - Run at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Donna has never run so much in her life.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Why did it always come to this? Donna thought. It didn’t matter where they went, or why; sooner or later, spaceboy would grab her and yell, “Run!”

Everything chased them; humans, aliens, robots, animals of all shapes and sizes, and on one occasion, what looked like a herd of flying jellyfish. Then there were avalanches, dust storms, collapsing buildings, tidal waves, falling trees, and corrosive gunge. She’d lost a really nice pair of shoes thanks to that last one.

Stumbling into the TARDIS and slamming the door behind them, Donna leant against it, laughing breathlessly. It was so much fun!

The End


Running and the Doctor go hand in hand LOL

great drabble
You can't be a companion if you can't run. Have to be able to keep up!

Thank you.

Running is so much fun, when your physically fit.
Ah, to be young enough and fit enough to run! My hips won't take more than a fat walk these days, if that.

Thank you.

I only run when I'm late for the bus or train.
At least you can run if you need to. Right now, I don't think I could even if my life depended on it.

Yes. I regret not taking care of myself better. I could be so much healthier had I not let stress get the better of me. Now I just try and maintain my capabilities.
It's not the stress that's doing me in physically, I've always had hip problems and weak ankles, and that's led to knee problems. I have arthritis in all my leg joints, and my toes, which is my fault because I wanted to be a ballerina when I was a kid and used to practice going en pointe (standing on the tips on my toes), which basically ruined them. Ah well, what's done is done, I just have to live with the results.

I'm very sorry to hear that. My mum has an issue with her feet, which she believes was from wearing high heels for many years.

I was accident prone which effected my nerves, so have to maintain the symptoms with pain-relief or taking precautions beforehand.

Ouch, that sounds nasty. No one wants pain. I can't take painkillers, or not the ones that have any effect on pain.

I wore high heels occasionally, but I've always preferred flat shoes or low heels. My sense of balance isn't great.

I'm actually reluctant to use medication. I heard it could lead to other health issues later on. I've had to face all sorts of minor health issues brought upon by stress. Its only when I'm desperate.

I've only worn high heels once and that was for my high school formal. I'm tall so never had the urge to feel taller.

Anyway, did I ever tell you I like reading your flics?.:)
I'm glad you like them =)

I hate taking pills, but I have a lot to take every day. Did get myself off one though. Meds have side effects and long-term use can cause problems.

I'm short, so high heels made me feel quite elegant, but I didn't like trying to walk in them.
Yes. When Donna commented in "The Doctor's Daughter" about the "outrageous amount of running", she didn't seem all that unhappy about it.
No she didn't, I got the impression she was loving every minute!

Thank you.

love your icon!
