Fic: At the Aquarium

Title: At the Aquarium
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose
Genre: drabble
Rating: G
Summary: Rose and the Doctor visit an aquarium; the Doctor contemplates the nature of sharks.
Author's Note: no spoilers.  Written for Challenge #207 (Sink/Swim) at DW100


 


Thousands of species here. Rose likes the colourful Parrotfish. The Stonefish are so ugly they make her laugh. Ought to show her the Prahav Zoo, where the water-breathers gawked at the humans and other land creatures – until the specimens escaped, and the building was flooded. Nah. Too much danger of crossing the timelines.

Big crowd at the shark tank. Humans love dangerous creatures, s’long as they’re labeled and behind a barrier. Rose reads the sign. “Some sharks can only breathe while in motion. They must swim or die.”

The ocean is a lot like the Vortex, y’know?

Ooh, ouch. Bit of a painful parallel there, particularly for the truth of it. It fits most of the Doctors, really, but especially Nine.

I think it fits Ten just as well, but I was thinking Nine when I wrote it.
