Authors Note; I do not own Doctor Who, I wish I did 3 I do not own any of the characters in this story, only the plot line that I know has probably been done before. However I am still writing it because I have some amazing readers/reviewers that actually want me to continue this. Thank you all of my readers! This chapter is for you!
Chapter 3; You can rearrange the stars but you can't fall in love alone.
The bizarre thing that slightly worried the Doctor was the rather gold tint the council now had. It was the same kind of gold glow Time Lord's had while regenerating so seeing it in the council scared him in all honesty. Of course he didn't say that out loud or show it on his face; he didn't want to worry Amy.
It made Amy think of fairy dust like the kind in Peter Pan. As she was about to speak a woman appeared in a holographic form in front of them, she was beautiful in a crazy kind of way. Her hair and eyes were a beautiful shade of brown. The clothing threw Amy off; it was an almost Victorian style dress at least that's what she first thought of. The more she looked at it the more she realized how off she was. The dress looked blue at first to her but the more she looked at it the more she realized it was really a faint green color. The woman's hands we're on her hips as she looked at Amy and the Doctor.
The Doctor stood protectively in front of Amy and lightly held onto her hand. 'Excuse me but who are you and how did you get in here?' The Doctor pulled out his sonic which only made the holographic women laugh. Her laughter sounded like the TARDIS noise. His eyes went wide, how could it be? The TARDIS was working properly, okay, it hadn't been for the past few days but that was beside the point. He had fixed her now, now she was all better! Oh so he thought.
'My thief, you really are sometimes so very stupid.' The women said shaking her head.
'Thief? I haven't wait-' The Doctor stopped in mid-sentence. His eyes went wide but he quickly composed himself. 'Doctor's very confused right now. How is this happening?'
'How is what's going on, Doctor, who is this women?' Amy asked thoroughly confused. And who could blame her? It wasn't every day in the TARDIS random glowing women appeared and accused the Doctor of being a thief.
'How it's happening is none of your concern, it's happening so that's really that matters correct?' The woman replied with a sly grin. 'Oh and you call me Sexy.'
The Doctor blushed. 'Alright, I'll play along.' Clearing his throat he made a gesture towards Amy. 'Amy, Sexy, Sexy, Amy.'
'I'm sorry but I'm not calling her Sexy. She's got to have some other kind of name.' Amy said crossing her arms over her chest. She was not jealous of the name; she was embarrassed for the woman. Even though it seemed the woman was rather happy with the name.
The Doctor cleared his throat once again; the blush hadn't left his cheeks. It was a darker shade of red now. It would soon put Amy's hair to shame if it continued. 'Well, TARDIS should work since that is what she is.'
Amy's eyes went wide, she hadn't exactly expected that. It was as if the TARDIS noise hadn't registered in her head when she, the woman, or uh sexy had made it. 'Oh um, well it's a pleasure to meet you then?'
Sexy nodded and couldn't help but grin at the blush that the Doctor still had on his rather pale cheeks. He was so much older than before but his body; his mind, it all seemed so childlike and new it shocked her he had made it this long with Amy. 'You can call me Idris or Old Girl then if you feel so awkward about my nickname.'
Amy nodded and was about to agree with calling her Idris when the Doctor cut her off.
'Back to what I was saying before,' The Doctor said now with his hands on his hips and his eyes slightly narrowed at Idris. 'Why, no, how are you here? This shouldn't be possible!'
'And as I said before, its happening. It doesn't matter how, it just is.' Idris grinned like a proud mother over something her children just accomplished with. 'I'm here to help you two clear up some feelings between you two. Though you won't exactly be happy with what I'll be showing you per say.'
'And you know that because?' Amy said with an arched eyebrow.
'Because I know you two better than you think, after all you've been traveling with me for quite some time Amelia.' She smiled softly at the Doctor. 'And you're my thief; of course I know how you'll react.'
'Why does she keep on calling you that?' Amy whispered to the Doctor who smiled weakly at her then looked at Idris worriedly.
'Old girl, what do you have planned for us?' He whispered more to himself then to anyone else. He only faintly heard Amy's question, and when he realized she was speaking to him he whirled around so fast he almost knocked her over in the process. 'It's a long story, a very long and a wee bit confusing story that I will gladly tell you after she's left okay?'
Amy nearly fell as the Doctor whirled around to face her. He instantly grabbed onto her arm when it seemed like she was going to fall. Before she could even control herself she was blushing at his touch. Clearing her throat she nodded her head in agreement with what he said even though deep down she had a feeling he' either tell her or act like the conversation never happened. If that happened she'd just ask Idris since it seemed like she was willing to tell her the story.
Idris smiled brightly at the reaction between Amy's almost fall and the Doctor's dramatic 'spin around look at me' mannerism. With a laugh that sounded like ringing bells to the Doctor she snapped her fingers and the TARDIS sprung to life.
The Doctor fell back words into Amy who in turn also fell; they slid off the council and underneath towards the wires of the council.
The Doctor groaned as he landed onto the ground below the glass floor above them. He blinked a few times before standing up and shaking his head as he extended his hand to Amy to help her up. Excecpt his beloved Amy was knocked out. Fear went through the Doctor so suddenly it was as if he was just struck my lighting. He knelt down next to her and was about to shake her in hopes that would wake her up. However he didn't do that, instead, he took off his jacket and placed it under her head after making sure she wasn't bleeding. He stood up slowly and glared at Idris. 'You know, since we're talking with mouths—not really an opportunity that comes along very often—I just want to say, you know you have never been very reliable.'
Idris rolled her eyes 'And you have?'
The Doctor snarled. 'You didn't always take me where I wanted to go.' He knew he was side tracking, he wasn't worrying about Amy, oh no he was angry, and excited all at once.
Idris smiled faintly, she was used to his angry childlike rants because after all that's what he was having right now. 'No, but I always took you where you needed to go.
The Doctor cleared his throat 'You did.' He smiled brightly now. 'Look at us! Talking! Wouldn't it be amazing if we could always talk, even when you're stuck inside the box?'
Idris shook her head. 'Oh no, oh no don't go talking like that. You know I'm not constructed that way. I exist across all space and time and you talk and run around and bring home strays!' She gestured at Amy. 'She's good for you. I've liked the others but this one's got something about her. Something you really need.'
'Oh no, no, no,' The Doctor began blushing once more and shaking his head. 'I don't have Amy, Amy has Rory. Well, er, had Rory. I kind of messed that up didn't i? I didn't mean to you know, I was worried about you, and I guess dragging her along didn't exactly help. I shouldn't have been so curious and went to see the crack in her wall.'
'I brought you back, I was the one that started you're little relationship my thief. Accept the fact and make a move!'
'W-What? No! don't talk like that! You're not a match maker, you're my TARDIS! Don't play that Cupid thing.' The Doctor said waving his hands around like a character in an Anime.
Idris snickered. 'Too late.' She looked at Amy. 'Don't worry, she's just sleeping.' She then fell silent. 'Do you ever wonder why I chose you all those years ago?'
The Doctor shook his head in disagreement. 'I chose you. You were unlocked!'
Idris grinned. 'Of course I was. I wanted to see the Universe so I stole a Time Lord and I ran away. And you were the only one mad enough.'
The Doctor flushed. 'Alright Old Girl a topic change is now very much necessary. Why do you, why do you think Amy and I should be together?'
Idris laughed and clasped her hands together excitedly. 'Oh I was so excited to do this, I couldn't wait for you to ask but I had to wait. I hate waiting, its rather annoying waiting for things to happen in the right order. But you know that or more so you will soon enough. I'm jumping ahead though aren't i?' She shook her head before he could interject. 'She's the girl that Waited, you're her Raggedy Doctor. Do I need to play a girly love song or are you putting it together all on your own?'
It was then that Amy woke up with a groan. She had indeed fallen asleep; there was no brain damage what so ever despite the fall. She did however feel a bit dizzy when she sat up. 'Doctor,' Amy said with a yawn 'what happened? And who is she?'
Idris grinned 'Just a friend of a friend now tell me something, do you trust the Doctor?'
Amy stood up slowly and picked up the Doctor's jacket, holding onto it she said. 'Of course!'
'Do you love him?'
'He's my best friend!' Amy said running a hand through her hair, she didn't like where this was going. What was Idris thinking?
The Doctor stood to the side watching Idris who was now leaning against the railing of the council looking down at Amy and him a sly smile on her face. How she didn't fall through the bars was a wonder to him. 'Old Girl what do you-?'
'You didn't answer my question Amy.' She glanced at the Doctor then at Amy. 'Do you love the Doctor?' Idris said each word with a pause in between them, a brief one but a pause none the less. When she was done she was once again down at the two of them, after all, how could she not? By the end of this conversation things would be very different between the newest companion and her thief.
'W-what?' Amy said with a faint laugh of embarrassment. 'I've already been over this with Rory, don't make me have to go through it again.'
'Oh don't be so stubborn. Admit it to yourself; you partially did earlier on;' Idris said throwing her holographic hands up into the air in slight frustration 'now say it out loud to him. He's got two hearts child; I'm pretty sure one of them beats for you!'
Amy looked around the room awkwardly before taking a deep breath and going on a rant that left the Doctor in shock and made Idris disappear in the process. Or more so, she left on her own and the Doctor didn't notice. He was captivated by what Amy was saying.
'I alright, fine, I love the Doctor okay? I didn't mean to fall in love with him but my life was so boring before you just, dropped out of the sky. I would be an idiot to not love you. Rory oh I loved him, at least I thought I did. He's a sweet, sweet guy and I hate being one of those girls that leaves the nice guy that deserves to have the best girlfriend possible I just, I just guess I'm not the girl for him. I've just always been in love with you. Which is kind of funny and weird since you did pop up when I was a little girl and all but you know that, you both do.'
The Doctor at that time did something he had wanted to do since Amy joined him on the TARDIS, he took the steps necessary to bring her at arm's length then pulled her close to him making her drop his jacket and kissed her passionately.
Out of instinct she wrapped her arms around his neck pulling him closer if that was even possible as she kissed him back.
The kiss was better than either of them thought possible. It held so much passion and hidden or more so, not so hidden love that it made the time travelers feel as if time had ceased to exist. All that mattered was the feel of the others embrace.
The only thing that could break them apart would be the sense of guilt Amy now felt, that and the fact she really had to breathe. Rory had just left, shouldn't they have waited? Pulling away rather slowly she rested her head on the Doctor's chest with a groan. 'I can't believe we just did that.'
'I know it was great, I'm rather proud of myself, I was told once girls liked the whole tongue kissing thing but-'The Doctor looked down at her when he realized she wasn't talking about the kiss 'oh er you're not happy are you?'
Amy blushed once again as he started talking about the kiss. 'No, no, it was fine, it was great actually but oh Doctor, he just left! He just left and we kissed, we we're practically snogging like teenagers in a car trying not to get caught by their parents!'
The Doctor, if he we're in an Anime would've had a little sweat drop appear beside his head. 'So, you liked it? Or-'
Idris appeared behind the Doctor and the look on her face was one of a slightly annoyed teacher at a smart student's stupid answer. 'She loved the kiss, she loves you, she just feels guilty about kissing you so soon.'
Amy jumped apart from the Doctor realizing Idris had appeared once again, though in all honesty she hadn't noticed her leave the first time.
'Amy, is that true?' The Doctor asked carefully picking up his jacket and dusting it off before slipping it back on.
'I, well yes Doctor it is.' Amy said with a weak smile.
'Well then I guess I'm back to plan B.' Idris said shaking her head.
'Which is?' The Doctor asked spinning around to stare at Idris before practically running up the stairs to go back to the council not of course without dragging Amy up the stairs with him.
As the almost couple stood waiting for her reaction they snuck glances at one another.
'This.' With a snap of Idris's holographic fingers the television screen now showed an image of the hospital in Leadsworth in which Rory worked at as a nurse.
The Doctor and Amy watched with slight confusion as Rory did his rounds at the hospital, helping sick patients and reading to children in the nursery and eventually going back to the nurse's desk near the front of the hospital. All seemed well until a rather completely and utterly harmless looking man walked into the hospital. He walked over to the nurse's desk and without a seconds notice pulled out a gun and shot Rory square in the chest. Why, Rory would never know let alone Amy and the Doctor. The screen went blank just as Amy shouted out his name her chest felt tight as if someone had knocked the life out of her as she cried softly.
'Why are you showing us this?' The Doctor demanded attempting to not only comfort Amy but glare at Idris at the same time. Why was his TARDIS being so cruel?
'Because my thief, even if he stayed with you two he was going to die. Now before you start yelling at me and calling me names let me show you, let me show you I'm not playing any sick games to pair you two up. Just promise me you won't try and change anything.'
'I can't promise you that, you know she'll want to save him.' The Doctor snapped. He then fell silent. 'Are you telling me whether he stayed with us in the TARDIS or never joined us at all he would die?'
Idris nodded her head slowly. 'If he stayed with you two he would be shot, except he would die saving you my thief.' She paused. 'I, I don't want to show you know. I don't want you two to hate me. I thought I was doing something good hear bringing you two together, Amy I'm sorry. Truly and deeply-'
Amy had stopped crying when the Doctor snapped at Idris. She whipped at her eyes and looked at Idris. 'I should be angry at you shouldn't I? I should be angry at myself and maybe even at the Doctor but, well, I guess just like I can't control my feelings for the Doctor neither can you.' She smiled faintly. 'You just want him happy.'
Idris actually sighed with relief, if Amy could forgive her then so could her thief. She disappeared without another word, yes she felt bad for doing that to the Doctor but she knew he would forgive her in the end. After all you can rearrange the stars but you can't fall in love alone.
