Jack shot at one of the bulky figures over the wooden barricade he was hiding behind. Blaster fire and grenades exploded all around him, peppering him with debris.
He ducked back behind his barricade and changed out the charge pack in his gun. A lanky man ran up, slipped in the shale, and joined him behind the barricade. The floppy haired individual stared up at him in shock.
"Jack! What are you doing here?" he said in a high pitched, surprised voice.
"Shooting people," Jack said, and took a couple of potshots over the barrier. "Who the hell are you?"
"Jack," the man said with a trace of hurt. "It's me."
"Gonna have to be more specific than that," Jack said, sighting down his gun. "I know a lot of me's."
"Oh, right, the face."
Jack's head whipped around at that. He scanned the man in front of him, young, pretty mouth, thick hair, wearing, good god, a bow tie and tweed. "Doctor?"
The man grinned.
Yes, Yes, Yes"Are you married, River?"Yes, Yes, Yes3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Her heart leaped at the question. She stifled it down and concentrated on buckling her vortex manipulator. He'd asked. He actually had asked her to marry him before just taking her agreement for granted up on that pyramid.
Her hearts were beating so fast, and with such joy that she could barely stifle her impulse to jump on him and kiss him all over his pretty young face.
She wanted to dance around. Preferably nude. Preferably with him. She could feel her eyes sparkling with mad joy. He'd actually asked. He'd been interested as far back as this.
"Are you asking?" She wanted to be clear, she wanted it crystal clear what he was asking.
Ooh, smooth talker, that sexy voice.
And she was definitely going to answer. This time she wasn't just following instructions. "Yes."
"No, hang on," he said, panicked, she loved that trapped, horrified look on his face. He was so young, so gorgeous in that tux. A tux for a wedding. Her stomach rolled with gidd

River was in her bath robe. The Doctor squinted at her, no, she was in Amy's bath robe. He felt his hearts squeeze, but also a wry smile lift his mouth. River would never own anything as dowdy as a threadbare fluffy pink bathrobe.
She was wearing her mother's robe. The Doctor's throat closed up. She was coming out of the bathroom, halfway down the hallway. Her hair had that extra bounciness it got just after she'd washed it, when it wasn't quite dry yet. And she was moving like an old woman, as if her very bones hurt.
He ran down the hall and scooped her up in a huge hug. She squeaked in surprise. His hearts were suddenly hurting, but not for the Ponds. For River. How could she think he'd care how old she got? Why would she think she needed to hide any injury or imperfection from him.
Didn't she understand how much he loved her?
"River." He hid his face in her curls, cool against his cheeks. He squeezed her as tightly

Who would have thought a sobbing girl would change everything
Here where my name
A mysterious game
Played only by youth
Who don't seek the truth
The young girl who came here changed everything
There on the outside
Just where you could hide
A whole team of guns
Down goes the sun and
The young girl has changed everything but
There's someone else here
Take all this fear and
I feel the other guy
Holding his breath and I
There's another girl here who will change everything
Says she'll persuade me
But she's from SHIELD and she
Lies through her teeth

The anger is rising
The flames are crying
Vision turns green
The darkness beneath
The girl's fear changes everything
The roads are dark

Smear them in dirt
No longer hurt
The girl changes everything.

Phantra looked down at a grey globe. Pitch joined her, "When shall we take the mortal guardian?"
Phantra turned and faced him, "Before the Lunar eclipse. When they least expect it. When they are weak and we are strong."
"Yes but it won't happen until next year at halloween. (name) would have been chosen and trained by then." Pitch's lips formed a smile. He put his arms around her waist, "Maybe we should have some fun while we are waiting." Pitch turned Phantra around to 'show' her his army of Nightmares.
She laughed and clapped her hands with glee, "Wonderful, but your artwork is missing something." She waved her hand in the air. Shadows rippled off her fingers and created crows with four wings and their size was as large as an eagle.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
The old grandfather clock had stood in the corner of her aunt's antique shop for as long as Allie Castiel could remember, methodically counting off the seconds, never too fast or too slow. Time was funny like that, she thought. It still kept on counting, whether you were aware of it or not. It didn't matter whether she was in the room to listen to the clock, or if she was anywhere else in the world, time would still keep on ticking and no amount of railing against it could stop it happening.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
The sound of the clock was almost comforting, almost lulling. She was sitting in her usual place, behind the high sales counter on a stool, her legs dangling like a child. Listening to the steady ticking, she laid her head down beside the old-fashioned cash register, feeling the granite counter-top cooling her heated cheek. Tears ran silently from her eyes and pooled unheeded on the smooth stone surface.

Robots and monsters were guarding their master's sleep, peering into the depth of the room. Shelves, boxes, floor, they were everywhere. They were kind of disturbing, actually, looking like they could wake up from their wary stillness.
On the left, an odd cocoon was shaking, the kid inside it attempting to fall asleep. He just rolled out bed, though. I retracted a bit so as not to be found out when he stood up, but, stunned as he was, he didn't even throw a glance at the window, staring angrily at the bed too thin. After some moments of silent scolding he put himself under the blanket, pulling it up to his chin.
I don't know why I did it, but I knocked the glass with the tip of my staff. T

All you could do was stare. All Jack could do was murderously glare down the guy wearing red, "Ok North, I said the first time very sarcastically that I like being bagged and tossed through a portal but the second time, especially with someone else in the bag. Well I don't know about you but the whole bag em' and throw em' is getting really old."
North shrugged, you could hear a thick Russian accent in his voice, "Give me break! It was mainly for (name) here. You got in the way."
They started bantering back and forth. The human hummingbird flew up to you and held out her hand. "Hi (name), I'm the Tooth Fairy, or you can call me Tooth. Now let's see how your teeth are doing." Before objecting to her request she opened you mouth and studied your teeth like a dentist.

I've been a mute ever since I can first remember. My mother and father tell me that I happened as a default of my birth. Never once did I question them, well… I couldn't.
All day I carry around a paper pad and a pen. My handwriting isn't the best. My Y's sometimes look like X's. My U's looks like V's. My I's are messy. Barely anyone can read it… Well, anyone that even takes the time to see my opinions and thoughts.
My mother died while giving birth to me. Though my father tells me I have my mother's eyes. A mixture of green and blue. I don't understand why my family calls them 'pretty' or 'amazing' or 'beautiful'. It makes less than no sense to me. They are just eyes… I don't see what makes them so 'perfect'.
My father sometimes can't even bear to look at me. Must be my 'gorgeous' eyes that remind him of my mother. On these days, I'll be stuck by myself in the house while my father spends time at the cemetery.

I can hear it in the way you speak
And the way you shuffle in your seat
Never turned your fork on place mats before
Impatience like you don't know me
And don't want to, regrettably
Spits of steak searing, splaying off wood
We feast greedily, not even yet greeted
I'm not sure if we ever will
Because something has gone missing now
And I'm not sure I'll ever find it again
You've changed in some ways
That I can't explain
That I can't reassure to myself
You will be underneath it all, the same
Certainly, you're colder now
Than the January we fell apart
On New Year's Eve
We exchanged bitter banter
As windows were battered by filthy leaves
And by February
We could hardly see each other
I don't like it like this
I never planned it like this
I want to cry to make it all better
I want to cry to show you I care
But now even if I burst blood vessels
In raw throated rage and towelled dark stains
Your relentless stare like stone, remains
You don't give a damn anymore

He was wearing special sound dampening shoes. He tiptoed across the aisle to peek into River's cell. She was there, curled up asleep, hugging her pillow. His heart did a little mushy flop at how cute she looked, all big curls and flushed cheek.
It was perfect!
He'd put the Tardis on silent, and he now set up a sound dampening cone and pointed it down the hall. Once he was sure it was working, he knelt by her cell door and quickly picked the lock. He didn't want to risk the sonic waking her up.
He grinned when the door slid silently open. He stood up and rubbed his hands. With an irrepressive grin he spun and dashed back into the Tardis.
It wasn't easy moving around River's cell without bumping into things, or causing enough of a draft to wake her up. He kept checking on her. She was frowning slightly in her sleep, but she seemed beat. She must have just got back from an adven

Dreams. They’re something that feed into the nonsense of fantasy. Because you dream. You dream so hard and you wish constantly of what you want but yet the thing you want, won’t happen because you’re wishing and hoping so hard. So then you try to wish for the opposite so the real wish you want will happen. But then everything falls apart because you couldn’t possibly think of the real outcome. The outcome of reality. The one that rips you in part because you came to believe that you were happy with the bad and you were happy with the one you really wanted to happen. But of course reality comes to slap you in the face, telling you that you’re a silly girl and that you should never dream. You should never hope. You should never love. Because dreams don’t come true.

I kept hugging Jamie's limp body, clinging onto his vanishing life.
A white, cold web was forming around his blankets, on the mattress, on his shoulder.
His eyes were closed. He was sleeping. But there was no peace on his face. No dreams, only regrets left behind.
I held him tighter. No, he won't be snatched away. Stop it, stop it all.
The wind grew silent, the afternoon was fading. Time lost its meaning, moments were spelt by my sobbing. The thick veil of the blanket was estranging everything. The painful lump in my throat was opposing, struggling to get out, but it was melt to cold water.
The empty house was slowly falling into the darkness; long, slim shadows entangled us. Me.
A sudden flash wiped the shade away. Heavy steps approached, and everything leapt into the deep black again. I didn't want to see, to meet the world over my head. Leave me alone, now. Now…

“I always thought, when I had a daughter, she’d be more like me,” Amy said as she watched the Doctor and River arguing over the croquet rules in the meadow behind the medieval castle.
They weren’t actually in the past this time, but in the present, or near enough, in the 1980s. They had decided on a lakeside picnic, and found this tumbledown castle as the perfect site. Apparently the Doctor had had something to do with its tumbledown nature at some time in the past.
Rory shifted on their picnic blanket, watching his daughter and son-in-law. “River’s a lot like you,” he said thoughtfully, still amazed and somewhat unnerved by the realization that the canny warrior woman they’d come to know was actually his daughter.

River knocked briskly on the door.
“Just a moment!” yelled a gruff, congenial voice from beyond the muffling wood. There was the sound of a shuffle, and some sharp, high pitched barks. “Back, Tipsy!” the voice ordered, not very authoritatively.
The door opened to reveal a balding, heavyset older man, her height, with merry brown eyes and comical flyaway eyebrows.
A tiny brown Chihuahua charged out of the door beside him and began bouncing excitedly around her feet.
“Tipsy! Down!” the man said in a harassed voice, bending over, trying to catch the excited little dog.
“It's all right,” she said, smiling at the comical scene, as the pudgy man fruitlessly snatched at the bouncing dog. He gave it up and stood.
“Sorry about that, she doesn't bite,” he assured her, a bit red faced, both from the bending and the embarrassment.

"You know she's going to kill us for this, right?" River asked quietly as she and Rory snuck up the stairs to Amy's bedroom.
"It'll be worth it," Rory responded. "Shh... quiet now..." He pushed open the bedroom door. Amy was sprawled on the bed in the moonlight. She hadn't even changed out of her shorts and jacket.
Father and daughter tiptoed around the room, setting things up, gritting their teeth and wincing every time Amy snorted.
Finally they were done, and tiptoed back out of the room. Rory shut the door carefully, wincing as the lock clicked quietly.
They sneaked back down the stairs to the kitchen. Only breathing openly when they reached that cool tiled room.

River waltzed her way around the console, a glass of egg nog held high, “Sleigh bells ring, are you listening, in the lane, snow is glistening, a beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, waltzing in our winter wonderland...”

She swayed back and forth, quite obviously delighted, happier and more relaxed than he’d seen her in a long time.
