I know what some of you might be thinking… “But Ashley, you’ve already posted this!” Quite right, I posted this little drabble. But this idea just wouldn’t leave me alone, and after indulging @reyskywalkred with some additional scenes, I’ve decided to make this an official fic. Enjoy!
@timepetalsprompts - tagging you guys too because this all started because of your drabble theme “echoes”. This is now no longer a drabble. Unless you count 28 drabbles put together ;)
Tentoo x Rose, ~2800 words, kid!fic
The Doctor’s young daughter unintentionally brings back unfortunate memories of his adventure on Midnight.
The Doctor’s breath turned ragged as
his mind was taken back five and a half years, to when he’d been overcome by a
foreign, malicious, and unknown echoing entity, reduced to a frozen statue, his
voice stolen. He shivered and tried desperately to block the memories, telling
himself firmly that he was safe and at home with his family. His daughter was
just trying to play with him, he was absolutely
“I mean it, love, stop!”
He winced as he felt phantom pains in
the back of his mind, so reminiscent of the pain he felt as the creature he’d
encountered on Midnight ravaged his mind and took over it by force. He
unconsciously flexed the muscles of his hands, reminding himself he was still
in control of himself and he was still absolutely, 100% okay.
