Fic: ‘The waiting pays off.’  
Title: The waiting pays off.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During season 5, episode 1: The Eleventh Hour (modern series)
Summary: Amelia waited. And waited. And waited.

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

At the end of The Eleventh Hour, before the Doctor arrives, there’s a flash to Amelia in the garden and the TARDIS can be heard.

But, is it the TARDIS?

And which timeline is it? After all, in the original timeline where Amy waited, the first time she saw him was 12 years after that initial meeting.

Grey clouds cannot hide the sun shining into the garden. She sits in the garden, elbows on her knees and chin on folded hands; he didn’t come. She waited for him all night and he didn’t come.

He was just people; people always said they’d come back and they don’t. It’s just what people say. But he’d been different. He’d asked if he looked like people and he said to trust him.

And she’d waited. She’d waited in the dark under the stars. She’d waited until the moon had lowered and the sun had risen. The sun had continued striding the sky and she’d still waited. Aunt Sharon hadn’t come to check on her but she hadn’t minded; she would’ve snuck out and waited again in the garden.

However, the more minutes, the more hours, that passed, her chin drooped until it rested where it now sits: on folded hands. Her shoulders slouch and she pouts, angry he’d not come and angry with herself for waiting.

A breeze stirs. She hears an unearthly noise. She tilts her head toward the sound with a smile. It’s not Santa but it’s him. Her Raggedy Doctor. Nothing but his blue box could make that sound.

Nothing on earth.

Wow. This is a great take on that episode; and lining up the two timelines...
