"Why should changing one little thing, saving one life, destroy the universe? How is the
universe ever going to know? It can't be watching all the time."
The time has come: after losing the man he loved to uncaring tides of History, the
Doctor's most flambouyent and deliberately shallow companion has decided to call it quits
and go home. No more loss, no more adventures, no more saving the world. Only it's not
that easy to walk away. It never is.
A bungled assassination attempt results in Luke stealing the TARDIS to undo the horrific
consequences only to end causing more harm than he could have imagined. Unable to stop
him, the Doctor instead finds causality fracturing around himself as he investigates the
use of an insideous technology that doesn't belong in this time or place. A
technology that's letting Kirena hunt down the people who murdered her.
You might be able to cheat Death, but you can't run forever.
This is another round-robin story featuring the 8th Doctor, Kirena and Luke.
