Author's Summary: He'd been promised a tabula rasa.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor
Recced because: See, even though this story has now been turned AU by canon, it's still extremely, extremely believable. The Doctor, after the Time War, after destroying Gallifrey - realising the Time Lords lied. But that's what Time Lords do, isn't it? They're quite the manipulative bastards... and rutsky captures this beautifully, together with Nine's voice and the pain of the Time War.
