This takes place soon after River enters Stormcage, but a little later in the Doctor's line.

Time Games

Chapter 1

River had been sitting in her cell for nearly two months now with no word from the Doctor. Of course, she couldn't blame him. He was probably off saving some planet from an alien invasion. Again. She wasn't quite sure if he would come to visit soon, anyway. After all, she'd only been in here for a few weeks.

However, no sooner had she thought this than she heard the familiar whooshing of a certain blue box. She turned to see the TARDIS materialize outside her cell. The Doctor happily jumped out saying, "Hello sweetie!"

River smiled and was about to give some sweet, sarcastic reply when she saw what the Doctor was wearing. She recognized the outfit as the one he wore to Amy and Rory's wedding. It was a black suit with a top hat. So as much as she was looking forward to the sarcastic comment, she had to say, "May I ask why exactly you're dressed as if you're going to a wedding?"

The Doctor smiled crookedly. "Because I am. Well, we are."

River tried to contain her excitement as she asked the question she probably already knew the answer to. "Who's wedding?"


River was now visibly radiating joy. "I thought we were already married."

"Oh, River Song! An aborted time line doesn't count," said the Doctor as he soniced her lock. He then opened the door and pulled her into his arms, kissing her softly. He soon pushed away, though, and said, "I want to do it right this time." He got down on one knee and held out what she thought was the most magnificent ring in the universe. "River Song, will you marry me?"

River, who was not expecting this, could barely speak without shouting. "Yes! Yes, of course!"

The Doctor got up, and had just slid the ring onto her finger when she pulled him back in for another kiss. It was more passionate this time, as they were both filled with excitement over the event that had just taken place. "Right, then," said the Doctor, pulling away. "Shall we go?"

"Right Now? What about all the invitations, the preparations?"

"Taken care of," he said with a confident smile. Suddenly he wondered if she had said this in hesitation. "That is, if you're ready."

River laughed at his insecurity. "Of course I'm ready. I've waited quite a long time."

"The Girl Who Waited," the Doctor said with a smirk. Then he took her hand and led her into the TARDIS. He pulled a lever and they were off.

Something then occurred to River: What am I going to wear? As if answering her thoughts, the Doctor handed her a dress that was so beautiful she would have chosen it for herself.

"Here, put this on. I'll be waiting for you outside." River hadn't even noticed they'd landed. Maybe the Doctor had finally decided to turn off the brakes. The Doctor walked out the door, leaving River alone in the console room. She quickly put on the dress, so as not to keep anyone waiting.

When she was ready, she opened the door to see Rory absolutely beaming at her. "Hello, dad," she said warmly.

"My little girl's getting married! And I wasn't going to cry," he sniffed. "Oh well. Hurry up, now. The Doctor's already waiting for you."

River smiled and took his arm as he led her down the aisle. She couldn't help but peek at who the Doctor had invited. She saw Amy smiling widely in the front. However, she recognized very few of the others. They must have been friends of the Doctor's. After all, it wasn't like she had many friends.

Then she looked up. She instantly forgot about everyone else in the room. She was focused only on the Doctor with his crooked smile and top hat. She couldn't help but let a giggle escape under her breath. He's the only man on earth who would wear a bowtie and top hat to a wedding.

Before she knew it she was standing next to him. Not surprisingly, she didn't know the man who was leading the ceremony, but she didn't care. All she cared about right now was the Doctor.

They quickly ran through their vows. River just wanted to skip to the "I do's". Eventually they did get there, though. "Do you, Melody Pond, take this man to be your husband?"

"I do," she whispered, since she couldn't speak.

"And do you, Doctor—," at this point he whispered his name in River's ear, "—take this woman to be your wife?"

"I do," he said proudly.

"Then you may kiss the bride." These were the words River had been waiting to hear all day, and she didn't need to be told twice. She took the Doctor's face in her hands and kissed him passionately. The Doctor kissed her right back, with his hands wrapped around her. They only pulled away after an irritated cough from Rory.

They were now at the reception. River had gotten through talking to every one of the Doctor's "interesting" friends, and now they were dancing. It was a slow dance, of course, and both of them were thoroughly enjoying it. Every once in a while the Doctor would bury his face in her hair and breathe in her sweet scent. River would then hide her face in his chest and they would simply sway like that to the music.

"So what have you got planned for the honeymoon?" River whispered.

"I guess you'll just have to wait and see," the Doctor said with a mysterious smile.

After a while the guests began to leave, and soon it was only the Doctor, River, Amy, and Rory. The Doctor and River were still on the dance floor, practically oblivious to everything else. However, they were snapped back to reality when Amy and Rory came up to them, as Rory cleared his throat. "I think we should probably be off now."

The Doctor shook hands with Rory, and then the rest of them exchanged hugs. "Goodbye mother, father." River said rather happily.

"Just remember, Doctor," said Rory, "I do still have my sword."

They smiled, waved goodbyes, and then the Doctor and River were alone. He then scooped River off her feet and into his arms like in all good wedding clichés. River laughed, and he took her back to the TARDIS in preparation for their honeymoon.

Yes, I know. This chapter was very fluffy. There's quite a bit more to come, though, so keep waiting! The adventure part is on the way. Again, please leave a review. They make my day. Also, if you like this one, check out my other fic, Singing Towers.
