Million Stars

Doctor Who ( 70 words) [2007-05-27] Romana

Romana looks at the sky.

LizBee wanted some Romana fic to cheer her up, so I wrote this very quickly, using the "title of the next song on your random play" as the prompt ("A Million Stars" by Enya).

The skies were different here. Darker, emptier. It wasn't the dimness of light-pollution, which she'd seen in so many places, from London to Trantor. And it wasn't the sparseness of worlds on galaxy-rim; even out there, one could feel the ripples cast into time by a million suns. Here, those stars simply weren't there.

It wasn't until Romana looked at the skies that she really felt how small E-Space was.
