This continues where the last part left off; I’d almost forgotten it!

‘Tis the Season: Snowflakes!
‘Tis the Season: Showing off!
‘Tis the Season: Snow and reindeer, oh my!

Many shovelfuls of snow later, as well as several, the reindeer emerges from the trees. The Doctor, lounging against the TARDIS, straightens and gently tilts his fez to a jaunty angle.

“Amy, Rory,” he calls, “company!”

Rory leans on his shovel and looks over to Amy sitting on the stairs. Sweat beads his forehead and upper lip; he’s not once taken his coat off, really not wanting anyone, even reindeer, to see him in his new jumper. “His friend, the reindeer?”

Amy stands and walks over to him, taking the shovel from his hands. “Let’s go see. We’ll never know if we stay in here. And,” she adds, ruffling his hair, “you’ve done an excellent job with the snow.”

The tips of Rory’s ears turn pink.

“Amy! Rory!”

Amy kisses Rory’s cheek before both leave the TARDIS, Amy dropping the shovel just before going out the door.

“Shut the door! We don’t want any more snow.”

“How does he do that?” Rory asks while Amy pulls the door shut. “He didn’t look at you.”

Amy shrugs and they both join a busily chatting Doctor. “Eh, there you are!” The Doctor claps his hands with a wide grin. “Blitz says he’s — what do you mean you brought the other big fellow? I thought — oh, I see.”

Amy raises an eyebrow when he turns to them. “You sound disappointed.”

“Blitz?” Rory looks between the reindeer and the Doctor.

“Yes I am and that’s his name,” the Doctor replies absently. “I wanted to show our fantastic jumpers,” he mutters to the reindeer.

“Are you following this?” Rory whispers; Amy nudges him. “Are you?”

“Shh!” Amy hisses. “I’m trying to listen!”

“What do you mean he’s sick? With what?”

Amy slips an arm around Rory.

“A cold?” Then the Doctor smiles and looks at Rory who swallows nervously. “My friend’s a nurse. Yes, the rude one.”

Rory opens his mouth; Amy elbows him in the ribs. “Oomph!” He mutters, rubbing where her elbow hit.

“He’s fine,” the Doctor assures the reindeer whose gaze rests on Rory. “He won’t be rude and,” he runs his hand across his neck behind the reindeer’s head, “that’s their ... mating ritual,” he explains, his hand now on the back of his head, looking anything except relaxed. “Yes, I know,” he looks to the reindeer so he doesn’t see Amy’s disbelief, “terribly inappropriate. Shall we go?”

“You’d better lead the way. I’ve got to keep an eye on those two. And yes,” he agrees as the reindeer turns, “humans are terribly odd.”

Oh wow.

But with Rory willing to boil rather than show off his jumper even to a reindeer it really does inspire my thought process as to what in the blazes his jumper /is/?
