A Quiet Lament Amid Green  
Title: A Quiet Lament Amid Green.
Author: fate_incomplete
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None
Characters: The Doctor (written with Eight in mind, could arguably be Nine)
Word Count: 100
A/N: Written for the who_contest prompt - Green
Summary: The Doctor returned to Earth and mourned the shining world of Gallifrey...


The first time back, after the war, after everything was gone, he'd stood alone amongst a field of green, an ocean of grass flush with spring growth.

He'd held out his hands, walked with eyes unfocused, thoughts countless light years away drifting in the empty space that was all that remained of a shining world.

He'd bowed his head, breath heavy, eyes moist, hearts battle scarred, nothing left but the memory of endless plains and towering mountains beneath Gallifreyan skies, and the phantom touch of red grass beneath his fingers.

Amid shades of green, he quietly grieved what was lost.

The Time War and period straight after fascinate me. Had no idea what to do with this prompt, but as soon as I opened Word, the idea of the contrast between the red and green worlds hit...

That was stunning. And yes, I really am sitting at my desk wibbling and sniffling.
