Losing the High Ground by Jasper

Story: Losing the High Ground
Author: Jasper
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1272
Author's Summary: In an alternate universe, the Doctor chose to be a hero on the Game Station, and the Earth died. On a ruined planet, for a mourning man, it's impossible to hold the high ground for long.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This fic is interesting as an AU, but what I love most of it is the imagery. With a rather unexpected focus on the London Eye (because really, here's Murphy right there - what London landmark is going to outlive humanity? The London Eye, of course!), a very possible version of the Doctor comes to life in a vivid way.
