Summary: The first regeneration is accompanied by some unexpected problems.


He's nervous, of course. Who wouldn't be? The entire plan will be for nothing if this goes wrong. But the science is sound – it must be – and it's not as if he has a choice. He's dying whether he wants to or not.

The process is over quickly, and he is able to stand for the first time in months. He goes quickly to dress and leave, but to his surprise is stopped by the guard on the door.

The one problem, he thinks, with not telling anyone until he's succeeded, as he protests:

"But I am Rassilon!"

stopped over from who_daily,

i really like this: regeneration is always interesting and i haven't read many fics that deal with it properly, probably because we usually see the doctor's on screen and therefore - what is there to say without just rehashing the event? but still - it probably is terrifying and more so the very first time, though i'd never really thought about it before. i also like the tiny detail about him being able to stand again.

And so it was repeated down the ages: the Forget-To-Tell-People-About-Regeneration Mistake of Rassilon.

Great little fic!
