FIC: The Engineer's Tale (Valiant Tales)

Title: The Engineer's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.
Rating: G
Characters:
Tenth Doctor, The Master (Simm), 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.
Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISes.


You want to know how much I hate him?  My hatred for our “Lord and Master” is hotter than the inferno that wiped Japan from the map, as hot and pure as the nuclear fire in the Valiant’s engines.  I’m sure the bastard knows how I feel, but hatred from mere humans only amuses him, when he bothers to notices it at all.  The whisper goes around that the other alien – the Doctor – will save us somehow.  I don’t believe it.  It’s not just that he’s old and weak.  How can he save us?  He doesn’t know how to hate.

Why no comments on a fic of such awesomeness? I love it :D
Then again, as an engineer in training, maybe I'm biased...

Thanks! This was the first one that I ever wrote. At the time, I thought it would be the only one. :-)

This engineer, BTW, is not "Turner from Engineering" who is mentioned in other tales, and appears as a character in my post-JE story The Children of Time Will Gather.
