Notes: Beta-read by Maidel. Spoilers for Forest of the Dead. I'm not really in Who fandom, I just love River Song. Is that such a bad thing?


I don't know you yet. I know I'm going to meet you. I'm not sure I'll ever really know you.

Wait and see.

I should have known it would come to this.

Maybe. I could never let you go, even when I didn't know you.

But you did.

I had no choice.

Neither did I.

You know I would have died for you.

You didn't even know me. You don't. But yes, I know. Because I remember you.

I wish ...

No, my love. I remember, and you'll find out, and that's enough.

Sometimes, it's easier to believe your own lies.
