title: be still (and know that I’m with you)*
for Christie,inspired by this incredible AU. (sorry about the angst I tried not to but failed)
*title comes from “Be Still” by The Fray, which I don’t own, obviously.
The entire first day, she’s convinced it’s a dream. Amy is convinced it’s just a dream, brought on by the hysteria and pain of Rory lea- of what happened, so that first day when the TARDIS whirs into their neighbourhood instead of out, the Doctor standing on her step as he had that Christmas - looking too old and too serious, she wants him babbling and bouncing on the balls of his feet, why can’t he be a child for her right now? - she doesn’t say anything. He doesn’t say anything either.
She opens the door a little wider to let him in.
