A/N - This is set after The Big Bang for The Doctor and after Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith for Sarah Jane, so it's pretty much linear. The only difference is that the events of 'Death Of The Doctor' never happened. It will be AU for both series from this point on. Enjoy :)

"The boy who waited." The Doctor smiled, leaning against the door, watching Amy and Rory dance slowly. "Good on ya mate." He sighed. He was absolutely pleased for his two best friends finally tying the knot after a few little naughty cracks in time and the universe exploding getting in the way, he just wished he could be as happy as they were. That's when his thoughts drifted over to the woman who stole his hearts a long time ago. Of course he'd leave her behind to go back home, faitfully dedicated to his planet, if only he knew they'd stab him in the back in the end. His Sarah Jane. He tried his best not to think about her, all the heart break he'd caused her. He sighed to himself, turning and leaving to The TARDIS.

He stood in Amy's backgarden, unlocking The TARDIS.

"Did you dance? Well, you always dance at weddings, don't you?" The Doctor turned round and looked at River.

"You tell me."


He reached into his pocket and took out River's diary, handing it to her. "The writing's all back, but I didn't peek."

"Thank you." She smiled.

He handed her her vortex minipulator. "Are you married, River?"

"Spoilers." She chuckled.

"River...who are you?" The Doctor sighed.

"You're going to find out very soon now. And I'm sorry, but that's when everything changes. Now, go and see her, you know you want to." She said before teleporting away.


The Doctor leant against the console, back in his normal tweed, after dropping off Amy and Rory at a planet on its honeymoon.

"No, I can't." The Doctor whispered to himself, shaking his head at the thought of going to see Sarah Jane. The TARDIS made a whirring sound before it stopped and The Doctor looked over at the scanner, where The TARDIS had landed on the corner of Bannerman Road. He sighed and shook his head at his ship, she always did have a soft spot for Sarah Jane, before walking out of the doors and along the road. He stopped nervously infront of Sarah Jane's house before walking past her little green car and up to the door. He knocked a couple of time nervously before the door swung open and he was met by the face of her, his Sarah Jane. He caught his breath, he'd done it, he'd managed to come back to her without bottling it. She smiled right through him like a stranger as she held open her front door.

"Can I help you?" She asked.

"Not quite sure... how long it's... been." He said nervously and slowly.
