Fic: ‘Breathe.’  
Title: Breathe.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During Asylum of the Daleks, near the end.
Summary: He told them!

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

After watching Asylum of the Daleks, I could see this happening quite clearly! And the Doctor’s reaction!

This could be read as a standalone; no spoilers are given.

The Doctor twirls knobs, flips switches and hopes the helmic regulator won’t decide it needs attention. He gives the console a warning thump.

Then he turns.

And groans.

He closes the distance between him and them, peering at them both. “Breathe,” he instructs them. He walks around them, studying them from all angles. “Breathe,” he repeats.

Hands and arms around each other, they don’t seem to have heard him. In fact, he realises, they’ve gotten closer if that was possible.

Breathe!” He tells them.

There’s no sign they’ve heard him.

With a sigh and a shake of his head, he abruptly turns and skips up the stairs, taking them two at a time. If they died from lack of fresh air, he’d mourn their deaths but he’d told them to breathe!

Pointedly, he ignores the couple by the TARDIS door. He nudges them as he goes past them to open the door.

They ignore him.

“Remember when I told you to breathe? Forget that,” he says, leaning against the door frame. “Don’t breathe.” He folds his arms. “Oh, for God’s sake,” he mutters and pushes himself away from the door. He walks to the couple and pulls them apart. “Breathe,” he tells them before turning them toward the door. “Go and not breathe in your house.”

Amy laughs. Rory’s cheeks colour brightly.

“Go on,” he motions at the door. “I have places to visit. Go,” he smiles broadly, “and be happy, Ponds.” Then he pauses. “And don’t forget to breathe, whatever you do!”

Haha, that's cute. They aren't very good about breathing, are they? They sort of go straight from bickering to almost dying to making out, and not just in this episode, either.

Thank you!

They aren't very good about breathing, are they?
No, they're not!

not just in this episode, either.
Doesn't that describe all their episodes, really?

*rolls eyes* Ye gods that pair is bad. I can't quite place the last time they were told to 'breathe'. Scary thing is they really do need to be reminded...

Yes, yes they do need reminding!

Thank you!
