Title: Until Such Time
Rating: PG
Genre: Drabble
Characters/Pairings: Rassilon
Wordcount: 100 exactly
Disclaimer: I don't own Doctor Who; I'm just playing in the BBC's sandbox for fun and practice.

Summary: Gallifrey needs a leader, and Rassilon stirs himself... a bit too slowly.

Rassilon, they say, sleeps.

It's only logical. If he discovered the secret of eternal regeneration then he can't be dead, but he was too wise to rule eternally, and so he sleeps. Some say he sleeps until Gallifrey needs him; some say he sleeps until the end of Time. Some say he sleeps until tea-time, although mostly they are laughed at.

They could all be right. It is tea-time, it is the Apocalypse, and Gallifrey needs a leader. Rassilon stirs. First one foot, then the other; he rubs the sleep from his eyes, yawns, sits up...

And the world explodes.
