When I first heard about Dalek week, I wanted to do it but didn't have enough time! And of all the categories, I liked this one the least because I knew the entries would be sad.
But I had this kicking around in my mind, so here it is!
I think it's pretty explanatory in the story, but I'll summarize! The year is 1937, right on the brink of WWII. Alek gets called to serve the Third Reich in Austria, but doesn't go, knowing that they'll come to get him. But he wanted to stay with his family for as long as he could, of course. I like to think that he wouldn't have served them unless he had no other choice. So they come to take him away, but Deryn has something else in mind.
