Unraveling

Title: Unraveling
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Disclaimer: Not mine
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None

He hated secrets. He was intrigued and cautious and a little in love with them to.

 

The spoilers and the predetermined destiny that used to irritate and terrify him were things that he was learning to look forward to.

 

Happiness wasn't an emotion he had expected to catch up with him so quickly, but secrets and spoilers, the back and forth of their unraveling relationship was a mystery he already loved.

 

River's hand was always inches away, waiting, wanting to be caught. She was always fighting to hide herself between the lyrics of her own riddle. She was always one step ahead, until she wasn't. He knows the pain he caused and the only remedy for it. 

 

He gave chase, flew through the darkness, jumping from planet to planet and touching the stars of the future and the moons of the past to make sure he didn't miss a second of the time owed to them.

This. Is. Gorgeous.

River always was The One He Couldn't Save. And I love the fact that he stopped running from her regardless.
