The Second Guard's Tale (Valiant Tales)

Title: The Second Guard's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.
Rating: PG
Characters:
The Master (Simm), Jack Harkness, Tenth Doctor, other characters
Genre: drabble
Spoilers: Minor spoilers for The Sound of Drums and Last of the Time Lords.
Summary: A series of drabbles about the people who lived, worked, and suffered on the Valiant during the Year That Never Was. 100 words according to MS Word.
Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.



 

We fall into two groups: UNIT and the Master’s goons.  Most of the UNIT guys act hypnotized.  For crissakes, the President was assassinated, and they didn’t blink.  Makes me ashamed of my uniform.  Somehow, me and a couple of others weren’t affected.  The Master doesn’t believe anybody can resist him. 

I keep my head down.  Thank God, the goons get the “fun” assignments.  Yesterday I helped escort Jack Harkness belowdecks.  I kicked him, but pulled the blow.  He winked.

I know the stories about the Doctor.  He’ll get us out of this.  When he does, I’ll help redeem UNIT’s honor.

We've seen from Torchwood (Fragments), that they're not always good guys, but I think many of them are. And if you watch the scene in Last of the Time Lords when the Doctor is restored, the UNIT guards do nothing to stop him. Jack, rushing off to deal with the paradox machine, says "You men! With me!" to the guys who were pointing guns at him 10 seconds earlier. And they go.
