Fic: ‘Something bigger.’  
Title: Something bigger.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During The Rings of Akhaten; during the courtship of Clara’s parents.
Summary: He holds the ‘something bigger’ to give her.

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

I have a feeling I’ll write more of this pair.

He holds the leaf, smiling at it. He should give her something else, something bigger but this leaf …

This leaf is something more, something bigger. It had to grow in that exact place, in that exact way. It got blown by that exact wind, off the tree and into his face, causing him to stagger into the road. It was, he realises, more important than it appears in his hands, innocent in its autumnal glory.

What better gift for Ellie than what began it all, for them? If it had not blown into his face, they would never have met and that, of everything that happened that day, would have been a fate worse than death. Never to have seen her smile …

He’d better go before he ge--- He looks at his hands and carefully folds the leaf, tucking it into his pocket. There is nothing better than this leaf for Ellie. Nothing at all.

That's... very sweet. And very much in character for what we've seen.
