Title: In his dreams.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Between A Good Man Goes To War & Let’s Kill Hitler.
Summary: Rory dreams.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

This image, this brief scene has been bugging me for a short while. So, I wrote it.

All characters contained herein are the intellectual property of the BBC & Steven Moffat; I am not affiliated with nor endorsed by them.


He holds her close, bringing her small face to his. He smiles, expression widening as she reaches for his nose.

Which crinkles.


He’s not above calling for his wife to change dirty nappies.

“Give her to me y’big baby,” she scolds, reaching to take Melody from his arms, cooing to her as they leave the room.

He looks down, away from the window, and, unnoticed, he rubs his eyes. He can’t cry; Amy needs him. She needs his shoulder, his strength, his arms. It doesn’t matter, he’s told himself (and tells himself now). It doesn’t matter that he can’t hold her, kiss her perfect cheek. He has his dreams, waking and asleep, in which to do that. It’s all he needs, he tells himself.

He feels the lie for what it is, even as he thinks it.


He stands, straightening his expression; she can’t see the moisture on his cheeks, the dream in his eyes.


He doesn’t look back as he leaves the room, leaving his dream behind.

Again, lovely. You understand Rory perfectly here - his need to be Amy's rock, which stops him from showing her how much he, too, is suffering. <3

Again, lovely.
Thank you; it didn't feel right not to write this after having written Amy's drabble.

You understand Rory perfectly here
Ohmygoodness, thank YOU! I wasn't certain if I'd capture any of that and I'm relieved to know I have.

Oh Rory. Why do I feel it's this attitude which greatly delayed his getting together with Amy in the first place?

He is shy ...?
