Doctor Who Drabble: Ghosts

Title: Ghosts
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Yvonne Hartman, Others.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 190: Nebula / Nebulous at dw100.
Spoilers: Army of Ghosts.
Summary: Everyone thinks the hazy shapes are ghosts. They couldn’t be more wrong.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

They’re hazy, nebulous, but vaguely people-shaped; that’s why everyone believes them to be ghosts, the spirits of loved ones who have passed away, returning for brief periods to watch over those they left behind.

It’s a belief that Torchwood fosters and encourages; better that than worldwide panic during the Ghost Shifts. Still, Yvonne Hartman and the team she has experimenting with the artefact have no better idea of what the indistinct forms might be than anyone else, so ghosts it is, unless and until they learn otherwise.

By the time they discover their true nature, it’s already far too late.

The End
