    Summary

    Soulmates can transcend lives, times, space and species. They can be friends, lovers or enemies. I wish I had learned that before.
    In another life, River Song is born Riahvelsodva, a child of Gallifrey, at a time were children a forbidden, she is taken by Madame Kovarian, who thinks that a rare Child of the TARDIS could serve better to the propose of the Time Lords alive than dead.

    She grows up the same: as an assassin, a soldier, a weapon.

    But there are things that she can't ever get off of her head: the desire to know who her parents were and what the mark in her wrist means.

    She shouldn't have a soulmate mark.

    Yet the word Doctor is tattoed on her wrist.

    Summary

    Being called upon by UNIT to clear up some extra-temporal alien mess or another wasn’t completely out of the ordinary for River. ... When the odd request from Kate arrived, if it really sounded like something they couldn’t handle on their own, she usually popped by to lend a helping hand (or staser, or what-have-you.)

    This time, the message simply read:

    Come and fetch your husband.

    Summary

    The Doctor sighed as he made his way back to the console. The last thing he needed was another unexpected emergency when he’d finally managed a proper holiday for his companions. They were beginning to have a point about the whole mortal peril thing.

    “Hello?”

    “Oh!” said a woman’s voice on the line. “Who have I got?”

    “You’ve got the Doctor,” he replied impatiently, “and if you don’t know that, where did you get this number?”

    Summary

    The plan had been dancing lessons; that’s all. A swanky party with some of Hollywood’s lesser elite, where she’d cast a long shadow in the room, but wouldn’t chance running into any of Rita’s closer acquaintances. She’d charm him into a dance or two— it was only the rumba. What would be the harm?

    Summary

    Liv and Helen could not believe what they’d just witnessed. Professor Malone— or Sister Cantica, or wait, was it River? Whatever her name was, that gorgeous woman had just presented herself with a bow on top to the Doctor, and what had he done? He told her to go ask the TARDIS.

    Summary

    “Oh, no,” the President said, a look of resigned horror slowly spreading over her face. “She’s right, isn’t she? You’re going to blow the damn Cloisters! Destroy the Matrix and bring the Panopticon down on top of us!”

    “Well,” the Doctor croaked, “in my defence, I’m trying really hard not to.”

    Summary

    It could be said that thoughts of this moment had taken up quite a lot of space in the Doctor’s head since, roughly, the second he realised what he’d given River a sonic screwdriver for in the first place. It had always been the goal, the ultimate eventuality, the imagined solution so distant that, unlike pretty much everything else in their lives, it left no echoes into the past. How likely it seemed that he could actually achieve it, or how quickly he wanted to hurtle towards it, had fluctuated greatly over the centuries.

    Summary

    The Doctor’s confidence had already begun to fade by the time the TARDIS brakes fell silent. As the door creaked open, dread pooled in his gut, a cold, sickening feeling spreading through him. Once, he’d loved the warm smell of polished wood, dust and old books. He had only somewhat recently, in his office at the university, begun to be able to tolerate it again without going into a panic. Now, it made his stomach churn and the hairs on the back of his neck stand on end.

    Summary

    “So,” said the younger Doctor as he stepped out of the TARDIS, “we rock up to the Panopticon and what, demand access to the Matrix? Or just skip the pleasantries and try to sneak through the Cloisters?”

    “Well, they’ll never expect me to try it twice, eh?”

    “Oh,” he said drily, shaking his head, “even better.”

    “Unless, of course, a less idiotic option presents itself,” the Doctor added.

    “The usual plan, then. I’ll be sure to keep my eye out for one."

    Summary

    So, tiny little problem.

    Well, a few, tiny, insignificant, probably-not-even-a-big-deal problems.

    One, his royal round-faced prickishness had arrived, with his Cyberman factory fully underway. Missy had been so close. So close to being good. He couldn’t really blame her for being confused by herself.
    Him? Him he could blame. The Doctor had shed plenty of tears for that fucking nutter already. He was done with that.

    Two, he was slightly a little bit regenerating. He did not have time for that.

    Summary

    This must be it, River thought. Funny, she wasn’t sure how it could be. The Doctor hadn’t met her yet. Not Pretty Boy; not for the actual, official, last first time. But there was no way she was going to get out of this. Not when he was here, the same one who was waiting at home for her on Baker Street, who was singing Milly lullabies and teasing Strax and coming up with a hundred different destinations for their next family holiday. Not when he needed saving, and the universe needed him to save it.

    Summary

    Rain was falling over Baker Street, fat droplets splashing on the windowpanes in the soft early morning light. The scattered rhythm blended into a gentle melody that was carrying through the house. River stretched and turned over in bed, listening more closely as her vision and her thoughts cleared from the haze of sleep.

    Summary

    The first time River called her young Doctor by his name, it was entirely by accident. She couldn’t exactly be expected to think when he was doing things to her that rendered her completely senseless.

    Summary

    River was a lucky girl.

    She couldn’t stop thinking that to herself; marvelling that every time she thought it was finally the end, he somehow gave them one more second chance. One more miraculous little piece of forever to share.
