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

The image of Amelia by her bed, praying to Santa? A strong one so I indulged it!

In her long white nightie, she kneels beside her bed, closes her eyes and holds her hands before her in prayer.

“Dear Santa,” she begins and resists the urge to peek. “My new friend hasn't come back yet and I'd like him to come back so I can see his swimming pool and library. Travelling with him would be really good too but I do wanna see that library and swimming pool!

“Please make Rory and Mels happy by giving them what they want and I hope Aunt Sharon has a big breakfast planned. And a big dinner!

“I've left carrots and some hay for the reindeer and some brandy for you with a big plummy slice of fruit cake. It'll be next to the blue police box by the window for you. Please make sure my friend's okay if he can't come back.”

She pauses, wondering if there was anything else to add. She shakes her head. “Take care of yourself, Santa.”

She opens her eyes and stands, brushing her nightie with swift downward strokes before she clambers into bed. Under her bed, her suitcase lies hidden, packed with her beanie on top. Red boots under the window.

Now, if he'd only come.

..... this is so sweet and heartbreaking all at the same time.

Seriously, it's no wonder Amy was a tiny bit confused about her feelings for the Doctor compared to Rory.

Yes. Sweet because well... praying to go travelling. Heartbreaking because... she waits another what, 12 years?

Twelve years sounds right.

This is lovely! I love the image it gives, and I love the suitcase packed with the beanie on top, and her red boots under the window <3

She's all set so he has no excuse not to take her!

Thank you! The imagery in this story was very strong that I just had to write this scene!
