The Next Horizon [Doctor Who]

TITLE: The Next Horizon
FANDOM: Doctor Who
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG
SHIPS/WARNINGS: None
SUMMARY: Written for dw100 Challenge #209: Domestic


He's had white picket fences before, and yards, and dogs, and mortgages. Nine hundred years of living gives you time to take the long road now and then. But that's not who he is, not anymore, there's too much to do, too much to see. He could see Rome again, or New New York, or those quaint little colonies on the moons of Ferramore Three. There's a universe out there just waiting for an odd blue box and a Doctor.

All of time and space-- infinite possibilities, and all he has to do is choose.

Someone always needs a Doctor...

Awww... so bittersweet! You really captured the potential inherent in the Doctor's life there. :)
There are so many futures he's lived through that have never happened. All the things he'd seen and been and none of it seems to last. It's just... arg! Darn but this show needs some happy once in a while! :P

Time to see if I can't convince the Silly!Muse to have a go... ^_~;;;

I'm glad you liked it!
Particularly poignant after tonight's finale. (We don't see "Doctor Who" until it airs on the Sci-Fi Channel.)
Does rather fit, doesn't it. *sighs* Although I was thinking more post Season 2, having just rewatched the Battle of Canary Warf.

Why can't the series end on an up note once in a while? *is off to compose depressed sonnets that shall never see the light of day. Or interwebs.* Bah.
