Rec: Indomitable (The Homo Narrans Remix)

Story: Indomitable (The Homo Narrans Remix)
Author: agapi42
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1549
Author's Summary: The Earth will burn, but the story must survive. (Set prior to The Ark in Space.)
Characters: Della (from the Ark in Space)
Warnings: None

Recc'ed because: The new series has gotten me thinking about Classic Sci-Fi, and this story really embodies it. It is a tale of minor characters that appear in the Fourth Doctor's second serial, "The Ark in Space", and it examines the history leading up to the time when the Earth was abandoned because of the solar flares. It honestly is a sci-fi short story that happens to take place in the Doctor Who continuum. I love the way that the author examines history and mythos and how they are what gives purpose to continuing on. It is the story of an era faced with dire apocalypse, going forth into the breach, and surviving.
