    Summary

    There are planets orbiting her eyes and her mouth tastes like the ocean; in her head she hears a shatter, like her soul has pried her ribs apart in a desperate, aching attempt to reach his. “If I could have picked anybody,” he murmurs, “it would have been you.”

    These words hurt just as much as the truth always does.

    Summary

    “Everything you’re about to say I already know,” Clara tells him on trap street. “Don’t say it now.”

    So the Doctor doesn’t, and the words he never says get buried like a seed deep down in his chest, and they blossom there, blooming against his ribcage like roses, their thorns piercing his skin, and it hurts and it hurts and it hurts.

    Which is why, in all those billions of years he’s trapped in his confession dial, sometimes, (when the stars change or when her painted portrait weathers yet again with age or he finds himself drowning with grief and rage), he’ll try to say those unsaid words to the Clara in the TARDIS in his mind.

    Summary

    He’s a fairy tale. He’s older than a fairy tale. He’s seen stars burn out and die and entire galaxies fade away to nothing. But there’s stardust in his eyes, and Clara swears - swears - that he always carries part of the universe inside him, that there are nebulas in his veins, that there are stories and starlight older than half the world written into his bones.

    Or: Three moments Clara spends with the Doctor, during Trenzalore and in its aftermath.

    "Sideways, head tilt, semi-mouth purse. I’ve been writing them down. Haven’t translated that one." Or, the importance of being yourself in front of someone who accepts you for what you are.
