Fic: ‘A child without the child.’  
Title: A child without the child.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (PG)
Time Period: Episode two, Pond Life: directly afterward.
Summary: He has to be reminded!

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

And now I’ve seen the second mini-episode of Pond Life; this follows directly on from that episode.

It can be read as a standalone, just for the thought of it!

The cranky whir-whir-whir of the TARDIS fades and they lie in bed, side by side, unable to go back to sleep.

“You should talk to him about doing that.”


“He listens to you.”

“Why do you say that?”

“He called in April, didn’t he? He only did that because you told him not to leave.”

“I suppose ...”

“Look,” Rory turns on his side, facing Amy, “we have a rule about the bedroom. He knows about that rule but he always forgets.”

“I know,” Amy sighs. “I remember talking to him about it on the TARDIS.”

Rory slips his arm over her. “I hate to be like this but,” he glances at the clock over his shoulder, “it’s really early and he just burst in like always. You’re the only one he listens to.”

“I don’t know how much he listens,” Amy replies as she rolls to face Rory, “but I’ll talk to him, okay?” Her hand rests gently against his cheek. “I’ll talk to him and tell him all about the rule again. He just thought what he had to say was really important.”

“It’s like,” Rory mutters as he settles once more beside her, “having a child without all the fun of actually having a child.”

Amy chuckles and snuggles back into the bed and him. Rory shakes his head and pulls the covers back up.

Back on the TARDIS, while muttering about helmic regulators and bursting into bedrooms of married people, he peers under the console. “Poker,” he mumbles. “I need a poker next time.”

Thank you! And yes, he is, especially in Pond Life.

You can thank Chris Chibnall for that bit of technobabble.
