One (1/1)

Rating: T
Characters: Amy, Rory, River, the Doctor and Oswin (see note)
Word Count: 5,333
Note: This contains major spoilers for “Asylum of the Daleks.” As for Oswin, we’re still not sure if the Oswin introduced at Christmas is some earlier version of Oswin Oswald or an ancestor named Clara Oswin. So, I’m hitting middle ground and having the Doctor and River just address her as Oswin, covering first or last name.

Summary: This was something River Song couldn’t change. She and the Doctor had researched and, cajoled specialists and did everything they could to change Amy and Rory’s future. But to do so, it meant they would have to go so far back into Amy’s timeline that it most likely would affect River’s existence. They would always just have one daughter.

Characters: Doctor/River, original characters
Notes: This chapter is NSFW. Hide the kiddies, don't read at work, etc.

Summary: Oh, but it all made sense now. River Song was Melody Pond, and Melody Pond was River Song. And River couldn’t tell them that she was Melody because with one single misstep, she could have easily wiped herself out of existence. That, the Doctor knew, would be a very bad thing - a story of the three months between "A Good Man Goes to War" and "Let's Kill Hitler."

Notes: For River, this takes place post-Demon's Run as an adult, but pre-1969. Also, chapter 3 accidentally went to my main journal instead of my writing one. Oops. I apologize for the mess-up!

Rating: M
Word Count: 4,064
Characters: Doctor/River, original characters
Notes: This story came about as a desire to tell the story of the Doctor properly falling in love with River, which you can see starting at the end of "A Good Man Goes to War" and culminating with his fierce drive to protect her in "Let's Kill Hitler." Something happened between those two in the 3-month gap for the Ponds. It was also spawned by seeing gorgeous pictures on Tumblr of cities created out of trees and the tale of Jim the Fish that's in the diary excerpts of "The Eternity Clock." When I saw the tree cities, I knew that there was a story that needed to be told.

The Stranger in the Scrapyard

Rating: K
Word Count: 819
Characters: River Song, First Doctor
Warnings: This little story is based off the entry in River’s diary from “The Eternity Clock” where she writes about meeting the First Doctor. A couple lines of dialogue are taken from the entry. Some prose stories put the First Doctor and Susan’s arrival on Totter’s Lane in late March 1963, but I pushed it back to early March for reasons that eagle-eyed readers can quickly guess.

Summary: The TARDIS sensors went off, and the Doctor grumbled as he hurried outside to chase off the latest of his intruders. Did anyone not realize that this was private property?

Title: I'm gonna love you til the stars fall from the sky
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River
Rating: M
Word Count: 4,440
Summary: Everyone has their demons. Even River Song. An AU of the events between "The Impossible Astronaut" and "Day of the Moon."

Author's Note: This story came about when reading the Brilliant Book 2012 and noticing the routes that Amy, Rory, and River took when they were separated from the Doctor between "The Impossible Astronaut" and "Day of the Moon." Then I started chatting with Charina (areyoumarriedriver) and mused that Rory wouldn't let Amy go on her own unless she was forced to. So what if Amy and Rory went off alone? What if Canton hadn't captured the Doctor right away, and he went with River? Hence why the situation as it occurs at the beginning of this story. It developed into something else, but I do like the thought of it and might revisit it.

It also explores a theory that I have about River after "Closing Time." You're stuck for hours, possibly days, in a space suit under a huge body of water. Wouldn't that create just the tiniest bit of a phobia? This explores the fact that River has her own demons, and they might not be what we think they are.

There's one spoiler for series 7, just to warn folks.

Locked in my heart in a corner apart

Title: Locked in my heart in a corner apart
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River, Ten/Rose, Nine, Martha, Amy
Rating: T
Word Count: 3,937
Written for: heavensalibrary
Summary: River had always meant to ask the Doctor about Rose Tyler, but somehow she always seemed to forget to ask. Maybe, she realized, she was afraid of what he had to say.

Original prompt: River learning about the Doctor's past companions however you'd like. DO want a good balance between acknowledging the Rose/Ten relationship without making it the most important thing ever in the universe.

Author's Note: The beginning has some allusions to You, me, and all that stuff we're so scared of. Many thanks to both gidget_zb and jadethe2nd for betaing these!
