Notes:This is the last chapter in my series five re-write. I really hope that you liked it. There will be a series six and possibly beyond that rewrite in this set of stories, but it won't be right away. I've got a bunch of plot bunnies screaming for my attention that I'm going to get through first. So please review and let me know if you liked it. I've got ideas for this family all the way through to the 50th anniversary stuff and it would be great to know if you'd like to read it.

Chapter Thirty-Two – The Big Bang: Part Two

"I'm trying, but the cracks already existed, dad. If they didn't, then we never would have met Amy to begin with," James replied. He could feel it in the timelines. This explosion, as horrible as it was, and knowing that somehow he and River could survive despite it all, was fixed.

"Don't worry about that now, just shut it down!" his father shouted.

"It's stopped, we're somewhere," James told him when the engines ceased pulsing.

"Just get out of there for now," the Doctor said and the line went dead.

"Dad? Dad!" James shouted into the phone, but he got no reply and threw it violently across the room.

The TARDIS had stopped, so they needed to get outside before anything else could go wrong. He grabbed River's hand and ran for the doors, but they wouldn't open. He tried several settings on his sonic before the bolt finally flicked open. James and River each pulled on one of the doors, but they opened to a wall of solid concrete.

"I'm so sorry, dad," James sobbed and he was immediately wrapped in River's arms.

There was a sudden flash of light.

There was a sudden flash of light.

The TARDIS had stopped, so they needed to get outside before anything else could go wrong. He grabbed River's hand and ran for the doors, but they wouldn't open. He tried several settings on his sonic before the bolt finally flicked open.

"I'd say this is a little bit bigger than putting a scratch in your dad's car," the Doctor said, suddenly interrupting the loop of events.

"Dad! Oh my god!" James shouted happily as he leapt into his father's arms.

"Nothing to worry about. Come on," the Doctor told them as he held out the vortex manipulator attached to his arm. James and River immediately placed their hands on it to be taken away from the exploding TARDIS.

They materialized on the roof, near the waiting Rose, Amy and Rory.

"Rory! Well, that explains... never mind," James exclaimed before his mind could catch up that they hadn't been through the events of the pirate ship yet.

"Amy, Rose, and Rory," River said in greeting.

"You know Rory?" James asked her with a raised eyebrow.

"Spoilers," she replied with a smirk. "Now, I have questions, but number one is this. What in the name of sanity have you got on your head?" River asked the Doctor.

"It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool," the Doctor replied and adjusted his bow tie.

"Please tell me you aren't keeping the fez," Rose groaned and her husband turned to her with a pained look.

"What? You don't like it? But, Rose..." the Doctor began, but turned back in shock when he felt someone snatch the fez off of his head.

Amy tossed the offending accessory into the air and River drew her blaster to vapourize it. James could barely contain his laughter.

The Doctor pouted for a moment, but everyone's amusement died when they saw the Dalek rise up next to them, with an exclamation of, "Exterminate!"

"Run! Run! Move!" the Doctor shouted as he ushered them all back inside, leaving the Dalek outside, behind them. He leaned against the door, listening to be sure that it wasn't going to blast its way through the door.

"Dad, come on. We've.." James started.

"Shush," he interrupted. "It's moving away. Finding another way in. It needs to restore its power before it can attack again. Now, that means we've got exactly four and a half minutes before it's at lethal capacity," the Doctor explained.

"How do you know?" Rory asked.

"Because that's when it's due to kill Rose," he said shortly and pulled his wife along behind him, expecting the rest to follow them.

"Kill?!" James squeaked. "What do you mean the Dalek is going to kill mum?"

"Because I told myself. Now, never mind, how can that Dalek even exist? It was erased from time and then it came back. How?" the Doctor rambled as he continued to lead them back toward the Pandorica.

"You said it was the light from the Pandorica," Rose said as calmly as she could manage having just been told that she was going to be killed by a Dalek. She had seen it, but she was sure that neither of the Doctors in that hallway would have been nearly so calm if she were actually dead.

"It's not a light, it's a restoration field, but yes, I called it a light. That light brought Amy back, restored her. Just like the nanogenes with little Jamie and the gas masks, remember? Life is nature's way of keeping meat fresh?" he reminisced, trying to bring a smile to his wife's face as he felt her rising panic. She rewarded him with a pained smile and he continued, "But, how could it bring back a Dalek when the Daleks have never existed?"

"Ok, tell us," Amy prompted, knowing that this was his usual lead-in to proving how brilliant he was.

"When the TARDIS blew up, it caused a total event collapse. A time explosion. And that explosion blasted every atom in every moment of the universe. Except..." he told them.

"Except inside the Pandorica. The perfect prison," James finished the sentence.

"And inside it, perfectly preserved, a few billion atoms of the universe as it was. In theory, you could extrapolate the whole universe from a single one of them, like, like cloning a body from a single cell. And we've got the bumper family pack," the Doctor continued to explain.

"No, no. Too fast. I'm not getting it," Rory interrupted.

"It doesn't matter, we don't need you to understand, Rory. We just need to fix it. So, how do we do that, dad? How do we restart the entire universe from those original atoms?" James questioned urgently, thrilled that they were finally finding the timeline that would lead them through to the future that River remembered and he had visited in crossing his parents' future.

"What if we give that restoration field a moment of infinite power? What if we can transmit the light from the Pandorica to every particle of space and time simultaneously?" the Doctor suggested.

"That would be fantastic, dad, but how?" James asked insistently.

"We can't because it's completely impossible!" River interrupted.

"Well, it's a good thing the Doctor and I eat impossible for breakfast," Rose told her with a confident smile. The smile turned to a pained gasp however, as she was hit with the blast from the Dalek behind her.

The Doctor caught his wife before she could hit the floor. He quickly checked their bond to find that she was holding on, but just barely. "Right. Going to need some more time to set things up," he said as he keyed new coordinates into the vortex manipulator and disappeared with Rose in his arms.

"Where did they go? Where did he take her?" James shouted.

"Exterminate! Exterminate!" the Dalek shrieked at them.

"Come on, Jamie! We've got to get out of here!" Amy cried as she tried to pull him with them. Rory was tugging her away from the Dalek and she didn't want to leave her friend behind.

James stood there, staring at the Dalek that had shot his mother in rage. Pure fury flowed through his veins.

"Where did the Doctor go? Damn it, he could be anywhere," River complained and tried to calm James as much as she could.

"He went downstairs. Twelve minutes ago," Amy told them.

James turned to look at her quickly and nodded his understanding. "Get to the Pandorica. That's were they'll be. We'll meet you there soon," he told Amy and Rory.

"Systems restoring. You will be exterminated," the Dalek announced.

"We've got to move. That thing's coming back to life," Rory shouted.

"Go on, you two," James said dismissively and watched them run off down the hall. "May I borrow your blaster, love?" he asked River with a disturbing level of calm.

"Yeah," she said softly and placed it in his hand.

"You will be exterminated!" the Dalek threatened.

"Oh, I don't think so. Your systems are still restoring. Your weapon isn't ready to fire yet and your shield density is compromised. I can kill you right now," James replied as he adjusted the settings on River's blaster.

"Records indicate you will show mercy. You are the child of the Doctor," the Dalek argued.

"Under normal circumstances, I would say that was an accurate assessment. However, you just shot my mother," James said as fury swirled in his eyes. The hints in his eyes of his mother's hazel, disappeared to reveal only the piercing ice blue of his father's leather-clad incarnation.

"Mercy," the Dalek pleaded.

"Not a chance," James responded and fired a shot straight into its eyestalk, causing the entire casing to explode.

James handed River back the weapon and started walking back toward the Pandorica. River followed quickly as she replaced the blaster to its holster on her hip. She had never seen him like this before. She was accustomed to James always being so sweet and loving. He took care of her after her world fell apart and put her back together again.

"Are you alright?" she asked tentatively.

"Alright? My mother was just shot by a Dalek and you're asking if I'm alright?" he shouted and she could suddenly see the tears pooled in the corners of his eyes.

River took his hand and wrapped her other arm around his shoulder. He buried his face in her neck as he accepted her support.

"You said you saw them after all of this. Was your mother there? Do you still remember all of it, with your mother alive?" River asked him.

"Yes! Yes, of course, you're right. If that timeline wasn't possible anymore, my memories of the events would have changed. Oh, you're brilliant, my love! Come on!" he exclaimed happily and pulled her with him back down the stairs toward the Pandorica. "Dad's got a plan and he's going to need our help!"

They finally found the others in the room with the Pandorica exhibit. Rose was sitting in one of the seats, still weak and slumped in the chair, but her eyes were slightly open. The Doctor was wiring the Pandorica to the vortex manipulator and Amy and Rory were standing nearby, questioning him.

"What is going on, Doctor?" Amy insisted.

Outside the windows and down the hallways leading from the room, a white light was shining brightly.

"Reality is collapsing in on us. This room is the only thing in existence right now, well, this room and an exploding TARDIS," the Doctor told them.

"What do you need, dad? How can we help?" James interrupted, knowing that there wasn't much time left.

"I'm going to take the Pandorica into the heart of the explosion. That will spread the restoration field through all of time and space in one instant. Big Bang Two," the Doctor told him.

"Right, ok. And what happens to us?" Amy asked, accepting that they knew what they were doing.

"We all wake up where we ought to be. None of this ever happens and we don't remember it," River explained.

"And the Doctor and Rose? They'll be fine, right?" Amy questioned.

River led Amy and Rory away from the little family to give James and the Doctor a moment.

"We'll be at the heart of the explosion. So, all the cracks in time will close with us on the other side. Since that means that we never existed, you will only be around as long as there's a chance of getting us back. Now, listen carefully, Amy grew up with that time crack in her wall, her memories are powerful and if we can break through that... if we can get her to remember us despite all of this, then she can bring us back through. You will need to remind her somehow, without just showing yourself. I'll do my best to plant some reminders for her, but you will be the only one of us on the right side of the cracks to make that final push," the Doctor explained hurriedly.

"And if I can get her to remember, then the timeline where I met you in the future and where River comes from, will work out properly. Time can be rewritten, but there's still a way through," James responded, showing that he understood all of his father's teachings about timelines when he was younger.

"That's my Jamie," he said with a sad smile as he ruffled his hair. "And don't think that we aren't going to have a chat about that 456 incident! Now, let me talk to Amy before I go."

"Are you sure mum will be ok?" James asked.

"I'm sure. Not only do we have the restoration field here, but one of the Sontarans, before locking us in here, said that it was impossible to kill her. I'm not ready to test that theory for sure, but I certainly like hope," he replied.

Amy approached to talk with the Doctor, as requested.

"Amy Pond. The girl who waited all night in your garden for her new friend and his amazing parents to return and whisk her away. Was it worth it?" he asked.

"Shut up. Of course it was," she said.

"Do you remember a little while ago, when I hinted that there was a reason other than Jamie wanting you along, for taking you with us?" the Doctor asked her.

"It's not important right now," Amy said dismissively.

"Oh, it's very important. Amy, your house was too big. That big, empty house, and just you," the Doctor told her.

"And Aunt Sharon," Amy added.

"Where were your mum and dad? Where was everybody who lived in that big house?" the Doctor prompted.

"I lost my mum and dad," she answered.

"How? What happened to them? Where did they go?" the Doctor asked her.

"I... I don't..." Amy responded confusedly.

"It's ok, it's ok. Don't panic, it's not your fault," the Doctor said soothingly.

"I don't even remember," Amy admitted.

"There was a crack in time in the wall of your bedroom, and it's been eating away at your life for a long time now. Amy Pond, all alone. You won't need your imaginary friend and his magical parents anymore. You'll have your real family instead. Just try to remember your family when that bang happens and they'll be there," he told her.

"How can I remember them if they never existed?" Amy argued.

"Because you're special. That crack in your wall, all that time, the universe pouring into your head. You brought Rory back. You can bring them back too. Your memory can bring just about anything back, Amy. You just remember and they'll be there," he said with a smirk.

"But the three of you won't be," Amy said as a tear fell down her cheek. She looked over at Rose, who was watching them sadly, not strong enough to speak.

The Doctor gave Rose a kiss, then sat himself in the chair behind her. He prepared the vortex manipulator and activated the controls to start closing the box around them.

"You'll have your family back. You won't need ours. Ha! Amy Pond, crying over us? Guess what?" he said before the Pandorica closed all the way.

"What?" she asked.


The black box sealed with a hiss and a thud before it disappeared completely.

-'-{ }-'-

The Doctor and Rose gasped as they awoke, side by side on the floor of the console room. They turned to look at each other in surprise.

"Oh! Ok, we survived, then. I love it when we do that. Legs, yes. Bow tie, cool. I can buy a fez," the Doctor commented as he checked himself over.

"No. No you won't," Rose grumbled.

"Are you alright, love? Does it hurt anywhere?" he asked worriedly as he checked her over for any lingering signs of the Dalek blast.

"I feel alright. I mean, my head is still a little sore, but other than that, I think I'm fine. What did you mean when you said that I can't be killed?" Rose asked.

"I don't know for sure. The ones trapping us inside the Pandorica seemed to be under the impression that you could only be contained, not killed. Daleks know how to kill Time Lords, if they really wanted me out of the way, they could have just killed me, but none of them had a clue how to stop you, so they just imprisoned us both," the Doctor told her as he helped her to her feet.

"Lyle beach. The beach is the best. Automatic sand," they heard the voice of the Doctor say from around the corner.

The Doctor and Rose looked at each other then peeked around the corner to see what was happening.

"Oh, I love it there! I need to go find my bikini!" the other Rose said happily.

They turned away from the scene to figure out their situation. "That was last week, when we went to Space Florida. We're rewinding. Our time stream is unraveling as the cracks are closing," the Doctor reasoned.

Rose held his hands in hers as a light flashed around them and they found themselves back on the Byzantium. They saw Rose working on Amy's injured ankle with her sonic as the Doctor, Jamie and River walked off with Octavian following them.

Another flash of light brought them to Amy's garden. She was sleeping on the ground in the backyard of her house. She had her coat on and a little suitcase. Amelia was ready for her trip away from this place, not knowing that she would have to wait a very long time for it to begin.

"How are we here, Doctor? If this is our timeline reversing, we weren't here at this point," Rose wondered.

"You're... right. I'm not sure. But, I'm not about to waste an opportunity," he admitted and picked up the little girl to bring her inside.

They took off her coat and tucked her into bed, both of them remembering a time when they used to do just that for Jamie. They hugged then and sat down next to her bed.

"When you wake up, Amelia, you'll have a mum and dad. You won't even remember our little family crashing into your yard. Well, you might remember a little, but it'll be like a story in your head. But that's ok. We're all stories in the end," he said and kissed the back of Rose's hand. "Just make it a good one, eh? Because it was, you know? It was the best. The daft old man who stole a magic box and ran away. The lovely girl who decided to run with him, forever. And their amazing little boy, who proved himself every single day to be just as incredible in his own right. Did I ever tell you that I stole that box? Well, I borrowed it. I was always going to take it back. Oh, that box. Amy, you'll dream about that box. It'll never leave you. Big and little at the same time. Brand new and ancient, and the bluest blue ever. And the times we had, eh? Would have had. Never had. In your dreams, they'll still be there. The cracks are closing, but they can't close completely until Rose and I are on the other side. Live well. Love Rory, because that kind of love, only comes once in lifetimes," he told her and looked teary-eyed at his wife.

"Goodbye, Amelia," Rose whispered and kissed her on the forehead before they walked into the crack shining in the wall, hand in hand.

-'-{ }-'-

James opened his eyes with a gasp and found himself in a hotel room with River. She sat up next to him, similarly disoriented.

"What are we doing here?" she asked.

"Dad said that I'd only exist so long as there was a chance that Amy's memory of us could bring them back. My parents never existed until I can help Amy remember us. Otherwise, I'll disappear," James explained.

"Me too," River added.

"What?" James wondered, already knowing what she would say.

"Spoilers," she sighed and he nodded.

"So, how do we remind her then? Just walk up and start talking about old times?" River questioned.

"No, dad said that I couldn't show myself until they were back. There must be some way though that we can get a message to her. Something to jog her memory," he replied and tugged at his hair the way his father used to when he was frustrated. It was similarly messy now.

"Is there something of yours that we could show her that she might recognize or remember?" River suggested.

"Not really. I mean, there's my sonic, but... wait. She's seen your diary," he realized.

"My diary? You mean she's read it?" River gasped.

"No! No, she's seen the outside of it. It looks similar to the TARDIS with the panels and the colour. Maybe if we left that where she could find it, she might remember the TARDIS!" James told her.

River pulled the book from her bag and opened it. "It's blank, James! Why is it blank?"

"Because, until the timelines are restored, it's all in flux. It might never have happened," he explained. "What's the date? We have to find Amy."

"It's her wedding day of course. That's when the explosion happened," River told him with a roll of her eyes.

"Right. So, we have to find out where the wedding or the reception will be and get over there to leave the book where she can find it and hope that it's enough to remind her of us," James said, much more confident now that they had a plan.

"I know where it is. Let's go," River told him and took his hand to lead him towards the reception hall.

She was already at the reception, of course. She couldn't be there for the party. But they could leave the diary on the head table to be found. They waited outside as the guests had dinner and just before the speeches began, they saw that Amy had discovered the book. She cried, then shouted and finally, the TARDIS materialized in the middle of the room.

James lifted River into a spinning hug. "We did it! Oh, we did it, River!" he cried happily into her neck. "Come on!" he added, tugging her towards the party.

"I can't go in there, James," she told him.

"Why not?" he asked her.

River shook her head sadly, indicating that she wished she could tell him why. He tilted his head curiously. There were very few reasons why she wouldn't be able to go inside. None of them should be possible, but he accepted it.

"Meet me after the party then? I should be there," James told her.

"You definitely need to be there. I'll meet you after," she replied.

During the reception, his mum and dad danced happily. Sometimes they danced rather embarrassingly. And he even danced a little bit with Amy and his mother. He noticed someone else. She was dressed the same as the bridesmaids, but she wasn't taking part in the party. She just watched the Doctor and Rose from the shadows. He approached the young lady with dark skin and leaned against the wall nearby.

"Hello," he said quietly and she startled a bit, not having seen his arrival.

"Um, hi," she replied.

"Didn't want to join the party? Looks like you're dressed for it," he commented.

"Yeah, well... I'm umm... not..." she trailed off, clearly unsure how to explain her behaviour.

"What's your name?" James asked her.

"Melody," she said softly.

"It's very nice to meet you, Melody. My name is James," he said and offered his hand in greeting.

"I thought you were Amy's little friend, Jamie," she replied with a smirk.

"Used to be. I prefer James, makes me feel more grown up. Jamie always made me feel like the useless little kid, you know?" he told Melody.

"Yeah. I know exactly what you mean," Melody sighed.

"Are you sure you won't join the party?" James asked her.

"I'm sure. I'll see you around, James," she answered. "That's a promise."

He nodded and walked back to where his dad was doing some kind of strange dance with his arms raised over his head. His mother was rolling with laughter at his antics and he didn't want to waste a perfectly good reception by sulking in the shadows.

He sat at one of the tables and his mother joined him in a glass of champagne.

"Why don't you come with us for a while? Donna said you missed it," Rose said after a while.

"I think I might. Time at Torchwood, university, even travelling with River for a while, it was never the same as the TARDIS," he answered. "I've missed you, mum."

"We've missed you too, sweetheart. I never thought you'd be gone so long. I mean, it wasn't all that long for us, but you're all grown up and I missed it," she told him as a tear rolled down her cheek.

"Oh, mum, I'm sorry," James said and shifted his chair next to hers so that he could give her a hug.

"Listen to me. Now I sound like my mother, complaining that you've grown up without me. I never wanted to be like that," Rose grumbled and snuggled into her son's embrace. "Let's go home."

They stood up, hand in hand and at a quick mental prompt, the Doctor joined them as they walked back to the TARDIS. He had parked it in Amy's backyard when he moved it out of the middle of the reception hall earlier. Just before they got in the doors, James saw River standing nearby.

"I'll be inside in just a minute," he told his parents and they nodded to him before entering the time ship.

"Did you have a good time?" River asked him.

"Not bad. Would have been nice to have a dancing partner other than my mum," James replied and handed her back the diary that he got from Amy. He hadn't looked inside, he knew better than that.

"Well, not everyone there was dancing," River told him.

James eyed her suspiciously at that. The only person that he saw not dancing was Melody, hiding in the shadows. How did River know that?

"You said that you couldn't be there. So, how would you know that, River?" he asked her.

"Just because I couldn't go there with you now, doesn't mean that I didn't go. Now, I've got to get back to Stormcage. Any suggestions on how I'm getting there?" River asked him.

James considered her response carefully. She only had one heart. He had held her in his arms enough times to know that for a fact. She wasn't a Time Lord. She couldn't be Melody, it didn't make sense. And yet, everything that she was hinting at implied that was exactly the case. He knew though that if he asked her, she'd not give him an answer. He filed the information away for now.

He took the vortex manipulator from his pocket. His parents had returned it to him earlier, since it did belong to him. He placed it on River's wrist and fastened the buckle.

"I can always make another one. Since I'll be travelling by TARDIS for a bit, I think you could use this more than me. Just don't let the guards confiscate it, those parts are hard to come by," he told her and kissed her hand once he had finished attaching it.

"I don't know how to use it," she told him coyly.

"I'll program it for you this time," he told her as he entered the coordinates for her cell about an hour after they left. He figured that the guards and alarms would have calmed down by then, so they probably wouldn't see her method of arrival and she'd have time to hide it before they found her. "But I expect you to do some reading up on spatial and temporal coordinates in your downtime in that cell," he said teasingly.

"So long as I get the usual reward for good behaviour," she purred into his ear.

"I can't say that I'm familiar with that reward just yet, but you can tell me all about it later," he replied. "Goodnight, River. I hope I see you again soon."

"Very soon," she said and her expression seemed almost regretful. "Goodnight, my love."

With a flash of light, she was gone. James sighed and slipped his hands into his pockets as he strolled back into the TARDIS.

"So, you seem to have figured out how the enigmatic River Song fits into our lives," the Doctor commented from where he sat on the jumpseat.

"I certainly have," James replied.

"Should I be upset that we weren't invited?" he asked.

With a quick laugh, James told him, "No. That hasn't happened quite yet, although I know that at some point it will. She's told me that much, at least. Travelling with her for two years, some things are bound to come out."

"So, who is she? Why is she in Stormcage?" the Doctor asked him. He had been dying to know these answers since the Library.

"I don't know. I really don't. I have hints and none of them make any sense, so I really can't tell you, dad," James answered.

Just then, Amy and Rory burst through the TARDIS doors. "Oi! Where are you off to? We haven't even had a snog in the shrubbery yet," Amy shouted a little too happily.

"Amy!" Rory protested.

"Shut up. It's my wedding," she argued.

"Yeah, and as much as I love you, Amy, you are not snogging my husband," Rose informed her as she reentered the console room. She had changed out of her fancy dress and into comfy pyjama pants and a camisole.

"Sorry, you two. Shouldn't have slipped away, but Jamie wanted to get home. He's decided to come along for a while and we are glad to have him, aren't we dear?" the Doctor announced as he wrapped an arm over Rose's shoulder.

"So, you've just saved the whole of space and time. Take the evening off. Maybe a bit of tomorrow," Rory suggested.

"And we probably will, but we'd best be off from your backyard, yeah. You two have honeymoon type things to do," Rose told them.

"Space and time isn't safe yet. The TARDIS exploded for a reason. Something drew the TARDIS to this particular date and blew it up. Why? And why now?" the Doctor mused.

The phone started ringing and the Doctor answered it, "Hello? Oh, hello." He winced a bit, apparently unhappy that he answered whomever was calling. "I'm sorry, this is a very bad line. No, no, no, but that's not possible. Ok, Egyptian artifact and something is loose on the Orient Express, in space. Give us a mo'," the Doctor said and covered the phone with his hand to speak to Rory and Amy. "Sorry, something's come up. This will have to be goodbye."

"Yeah, I think it's goodbye. Do you think it's goodbye?" Amy asked Rory.

"Definitely goodbye," he agreed.

They went to the TARDIS doors and opened them wide to shout and wave goodbye to Leadworth. James smirked and shook his head. Life in the TARDIS was never dull.

"Don't worry about a thing, your Majesty. We're on our way," the Doctor said before hanging up the phone.
