    Summary

    From the stories she has heard about the Doctor since she was a little girl, he’s a hard and ruthless man. He knows nothing of love or kindness. He’s a killer – heartless and cold. River doubts a shivering woman on a miserable night will do much to change that, but it isn’t her job to question Kovarian, only to do what she’s told.

    Summary

    River Song made it perfectly clear she wanted nothing to do with him when she’d thrown his own guitar at his head and walked out, taking her lovely voice and his heart with her. Whatever she wants now, it isn’t him.

    Summary

    For the last three years, when the trees begin to bloom and the air in the city grows too hot and too humid to be borne, the Pond-Smith household packs up their belongings and makes the journey into the countryside and the little cottage that waits patiently through the winter for their return.

    Summary

    For once, he has no plan. He doesn’t even have a thing that might possibly become a plan with enough talking and a bit of luck. There is no grand scheme to save himself this time and the Doctor has finally made peace with that. The Silence think they’ve gotten the better of him but he knows differently. He isn’t being defeated – he’s surrendering. Not to them, of course. Never to them. He isn’t even dying for the universe this time. He’s dying for River Song.

    Summary

    The only thing more humiliating than being stood up is being stood up in a restaurant where everyone can clearly see he’s been sitting at a table for two all night without any company.

    He turns to signal the waiter and pay for his tea but before he can lift his hand, the chair across from him is pulled back and a whirlwind with hair sinks into it. “Sorry I’m late, darling,” she says, a touch too loudly as she drops her handbag onto the table and beams at him. “Traffic was hell.”

    Summary

    He’d last made love to River Song centuries ago in another body. This body is a bit rusty when it comes to all things physical. He’s already getting used to reaching for her hand or settling a palm at the small of her back to guide her but the rest of it is slower to resurface.

    Summary

    His wife is gone and there is no getting her back but there’s also no reason he can’t use her tendency toward grand theft auto to communicate with the versions of her still running around the universe creating havoc. It isn’t much but for a man as old and grieved and in love as the Doctor, it is more than he ever thought he’d have again.

    Summary

    “Marriage is about compromise, sweetie. Putting someone else’s needs before your own. When have you ever been willing to do that?” She laughs softly. “I’ve just lost my parents and you won’t even take me to hear the Towers sing.”

    Summary

    “I didn’t save her because I can’t. I’ve learned my lesson. Some things can’t be changed.”

    Raven pushes away her plate and stands quickly, staring down at him with tears in her eyes and determination in her hearts. “Well I haven’t learned that lesson yet. And I’m not willing to take your word for it.”

    Summary

    “So,” the Doctor says, setting the cup and saucer in front of her. “You’re pregnant.”

    River flinches, scowling at the steam rising from her cup. “Not so loud.”

    “You think if we whisper it’ll give up and go away?” Brow furrowed, he leans in and lowers his voice. “Worth a shot, I suppose.”

    Summary

    For all of his searching and dreaming and hoping, for every sleepless night and every failed attempt, the Doctor never actually thought he would find home again. And he certainly never thought he would step out onto the red dust of his planet with his wife standing at his side, her hand small and steady in his.

    Summary

    “Have we met before? Well, no matter – that makes things easier. Or perhaps not depending on our last encounter.” Without waiting for a reply, River reaches for the gun strapped to her thigh and levels it right in his face, smiling serenely. “Don’t make any sudden moves, Scottish Eyebrows. I’m going to need you to marry me.”

    Summary

    Clad in a dressing gown and slippers, the Doctor rummages through cabinets in the kitchen looking for twenty-fifth century Swiss chocolate, which River insists is the only chocolate that will do. The baby is having a craving, she says. He very much doubts their son is a connoisseur of chocolates from the womb. River, however, is another matter entirely.

    Summary

    River makes it halfway down the corridor away from the control room before she hears the Doctor. She rolls her eyes fondly and trails her fingertips along the wall, following the sound of his voice. Talking to himself. Typical.

    Summary

    He stands, holding out a hand the Doctor wastes no time in ignoring entirely. “Bruce Baldwin.” River darts her gaze between both of them, the love of her life and the man who has kept the loneliness at bay the past six months. “I’m a friend of River’s.”

    The tense set of the Doctor’s shoulders relaxes somewhat, the lines around his eyes losing their hard edge, and a small, vindictive part of River – the psychopath that never really left her, only slept in some dark corner of her mind, waiting to be awakened – wants him to hurt just as much as she has been. It surges forward with a vengeance and makes her blurt out, “Lover.”

    Summary

    “I’ll be back before you know it.”

    As she turns away, she hears him mutter something under his breath – faint but just loud enough to carry across the room and reach her ears. She tenses, drawing in a sharp breath as she glances over her shoulder. The Doctor watches her from where he stands, leaning over the console, fringe falling into his eyes. He looks at her like he’d wanted her to hear it.

    She swallows, already knowing she’ll regret asking. “What was that?”

    He grits his teeth. “I said maybe you shouldn’t come back.”

    Summary

    Her hearts pound in her ears as the doors creak open and when she sees a flash of floppy brown hair and tweed, her breath catches. It’s him. This is the version of her Doctor that she had conceived their child with. This is the same face she sees every time she looks at her son. And right now he’s stepping out of his ship with a bright grin, shutting the door behind him.
