Tick Tock

Tick tock goes the clock
And what then shall we see?
Tick tock until the day
That thou shalt marry me
Tick tock goes the clock
And what now shall we play?
Tick tock goes the clock
Now Summer’s gone away?
Tick tock goes the clock
And all the years they fly
Tick tock and all too soon
You and I must die
Tick tock goes the clock
He cradled and he rocked her
Tick tock goes the clock
Even for the Doctor…
Tick tock goes the clock
And all the years they fly.
Tick tock, and all too soon
Your love will surely die.
Doctor brave and good
He turned away from violence
When he understood
The falling of the Silence


1. Expect the Unexpected

*Please Help. I need you. *

The Doctor looks at the five words staring up at him from his physic paper and throws the TARDIS in park. He recognizes the date and place but not the year. He throws the TARDIS in reverse and punches in the coordinates. The TARDIS whirs and groans and moans before stopping. The Doctor throws open the door and smiles.

            River’s on her cot in her cell, wearing her awful prison uniform with the Stormcage logo when the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to unlock her cell. The locks click open and River doesn’t move. She pushes back her curls and sees the Doctor. A grin slowly spreads across her face and the Doctor instantly realizes that this is not his wife. This is not the River he knows. The woman before him is in pain, she’s in trouble and she’s fearing her life. The Doctor sits down on the cot next to her and River buries her face in his shoulder. She lets the tears fall and lets the Doctor, comfort her.

“River…what’s wrong.”

“I need a scan…can the TARDIS do a scan?”
“Why do you need a scan?” River doesn’t reply. She pushes herself up off her cot and unlocks the TARDIS. She pushes the door open and starts typing something into the console. The Doctor comes in and leans against the door. His eyes are full of curiosity and he wonders at the lovely woman with mysterious eyes, curly hair and the woman who claims to be his wife. He hasn’t married her quite yet though.

“Scan complete. Professor River Song…positive.” River pushes the screen away and vanishes into the TARDIS’ lower levels. The Doctor whips the screen around to him and pulls up the latest scan. River Song…his future wife…pregnant with his child.

“River…how far along are you?” River looks up from the utility room bed and shrugs her shoulders.

“About 15 weeks…have we done Ante yet?” He looks confused and she smiles before saying

“Clearly we haven’t so...” She grins and says. “Spoilers.”

            He smiles as he sees she’s back to her old self. The Doctor must decide…his future child is at risk and so he decides to alter the time stream.

“River…what if I altered the timeline?”
“I don’t know. You’re the time expert.”

“River, I don’t how to say this. There’s a poem that’s been whispered for centuries. It’s about you and I. In your timeline, have we already married?”
“Spoilers.” The Doctor grips River’s shoulders and tries not to shake. He stares into her eyes and says.

“River…I’m being serious.” She sighs and notes the sincerity in his voice. He’s not just curious…he’s plotting a course of action…given the new information…he’s deciding if he should alter the timeline.

“Don’t you dare.” She whispers. He leans into her ear and says.

“Time can be rewritten.” She kisses his cheek and replies.

“Not this time.” She kisses his lips and he pulls her into an embrace. When the kiss breaks he says.

“What about our child?” She replies and then slips back into her cell. She locks the cell door, stares at the Doctor.

“We’ll get to it when the time comes. See you soon Doctor.”

“River…” She returns to her cot and puts in her earbuds. He watches as she places a hand over her abdomen and closes her eyes.
