Fic: The Second Engineer's Tale (Valiant Tales)

Title: The Second Engineer's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.
Rating: PG
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. 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.


Always liked taking things apart to see how they worked: a lawnmower, electric kettle, Gran's cuckoo clock.  At school I liked maths and science best.  Everything has an answer; you just have to figure it out, find the right equations.  When UNIT assigned me to the Valiant, I was bloody thrilled.  Alien technology, like nothing I'd seen before, but there were equations to explain it.

I don't sleep much.  In my dreams I see Japan in flames, smell burning flesh.  God, I need to understand, need this to make some kind of sense.

What are the equations that explain Hell?
