The Always More (Doctor Who Fanfiction)
Everyone assumes that you can fit the universe inside a box. That you can say for certain that the universe is scary, or wonderful or mysterious, or magical. But it isn't only one of those things, or even twenty- how can it be? It's a universe of life and death, horror and fantasy, all at once, but none of us could ever describe it with a single word, or even a thousand of them. It is forever growing and changing, and everywhere, everything is happening all at once.
People try to fit the universe into their own hands: they send out probes, and expeditions, and vacation ships. But we must understand that the universe is far too complex to conform to our own vocabulary and mindsets.
Humans, we try to make the whole thing child friendly. Explain, explore without really accepting what the universe truly is.
In reality, it is far too big, far too cold, far too loud, far too evil, and far too destructive for a short-lived species of warmth like us.
The enormity of the possible is terrifying every time you step out those blue doors. But for a person facing death like me, the universe is a whole lot better that way.

Note: This is not a novel. It is a collection of what you could call short stories that make up several chapters each, and all fit together how a novel would.
