Simulacra (dystopian!verse 23/24)

A Doctor Who fanfic, 10/Rose. AU. PG-13 (Implied Violence/Mild Language). (1890 words)

Continues sequentially after Before the Mockingbird Weeps, chronologically after Jasmine, Gunpowder, Assam. Twenty-third in the dystopian!verse series. This is effectively the last chapter, folks! (Well, there's technically still the epilogue - but epilogues don't really count, do they?) Anyhow, this chapter is a tad confusing in a frustratingly minimalist fashion, so if you don't get everything, don't worry - you aren't supposed to. ;) Interpret it however you wish, that's really the point.

A good hint though, if you find yourself floundering - reread Ground Zero and Jasmine, Gunpowder, Assam!

Thank you so, so, so much for all of your invaluable support! I would never have made it this far without all of you nudging me along. You guys make writing a wonderful experience. Anyhow, read on, and enjoy! Do let me know what you think. Also, a quick note: a post listing the chapters in chronological order can be found here.

Simulacra
It is a fine balance to strike, living between a life-you-cannot-remember, and a life-you-don't-want-to-live.
