Fic: ‘Living safe.’  
Title: Living safe.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: After The God Complex, before Closing Time, season 6.
Summary: What Amy and Rory don’t say.

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

SPOILERS if you’ve not seen the episode The Girl Who Waited. NO SPOILERS, please, for Closing Time.

I wondered about what might’ve been left unsaid between them after the Doctor saved them from the life he leads.

Rory pours the champagne anyway and hands Amy a glass. It’s his dream car; that’s reason to celebrate!

There’s also the fact the Doctor had chosen to save them from himself.

He cannot help but be grateful for that; as his eyes move to his wife, he wonders if she thinks the same.

She stands by the window, watching the park across the road. She bites her lip and Rory can’t help but wonder if she’s trying to wish that impossibly blue box into existence, trying to will it to land where it had last been parked when they’d seen it.

He puts his hand on her shoulder but she shrugs it off. He tries again.

This time, she doesn’t move and lets it stay.

He’s never spoken of the search for her after he’d learned she’d been switched for a ‘ganger and she’s never spoken of her time held by the Silents. He’s also never told her the decision he’d made after she’d forgotten she’d lived thirty six years without him.

He cannot help but feel the distance between them at those times.

And he cannot help but thank the Doctor for saving them.

Ah, this was lovely. Very emotive. I can practically feel that gap between them, all the things unsaid heavy in the air.

Thank you. There were supposed to be more of these moments but that didn't feel right; I'm very glad these moments felt very true, right.

Sweet. I'm not sure Amy would shrug the hand off in the first place mind you.

I feel she would have in that particular moment.

Ohh, so sad...but Rory always was more practical and he KNOWS...


*hugs you*

He very much knows and, maybe, that'll be his problem as they grow older together. How much he knows compared to her.

Late to the party, but I'm impressive with how much you could illuminate in so little space.

Thank you so very much! I was afraid I'd left out something by it being short and I'm glad to see this for that fear has been set at ease by what you've said. Thank you.
