Nine in Gallifreyan

Dr. Who Fiction: Dam-busting

Title: Dam-busting
Author: kaffyr 
Characters: the Ninth Doctor, OC
Rating: PG-13
Summary: A story in which the Doctor learns that scars are ugly, but better than open wounds; and  that not all hearts can be broken.
Edited: by the incomparable dr_whuh 
Author's note: This is the second of two stories won of me by zenitt  during the help_haiti  auction. He is the master of challenging prompts, and I have already acknowledged to him that I wandered off the path a bit with this one. I hope he forgives me, and I thank him again for pushing me past my normal comfort levels and into something passing strange and wonderful. And for those who pay attention to these things, this story follows immediately on the heels of my story Ice Like Centuries. It can be read as a stand-alone, but gains some context if the other is read.
