A.N Sorry for the break, here is the next chapter to this story, after watching the Christmas episode - at least three times - here is the next chapter. A little fluffy for the holiday seasons. Hope you enjoy.
"I missed you," The Doctor said softly kissing the tip of Harry's nose making him giggle slightly.
"I missed you too, you're back sooner than you said," Harry smiled snuggling closer to him.
"I may have managed to do things quicker and gotten back earlier because I missed you," the Doctor confessed kissing Harry's cheek softly.
"I'm glad," Harry smiled turning to capture the Doctor's lips again.
"I don't want to have to leave you again," the Doctor sighed as they settled down, Harry's ear resting on the Doctor's chest listening to the double thump thump of the Doctor's hearts.
"So don't and we'll both be happy," Harry smiled.
"I'll try my best," The Doctor ran his fingers gently through Harry's hair.
"That's all I ask," Harry murmured sleepily before nodding off himself.
"I'll try my very best," he whispered into Harry's dark hair before settling down to sleep himself.
"Are you ready?" The Doctor stopped and turned around as Harry stepped out of his back door and shut it behind him. He locked it before turning and looked at the Doctor standing in front of the TARDIS, holding his back pack which held all the things that Harry couldn't leave behind.
He couldn't believe that it had only been four months since he had met the Doctor for that first time in the play park, seemingly by chance, and now here he was, standing in his snow filled back garden, staring at the man he was falling in love completely with, getting ready to leave with him to explore the world, time, space, universes, galaxies and everything else.
"Ready," Harry smiled. The Doctor held his hand out and Harry slipped his own into straight away, feeling the Doctor's strong, warm fingers closing over his own. He tugged Harry close to him, wrapping his free arm around Harry's waist, his eyes scanning Harry's face and then settled on his eyes.
"Are you sure? We can wait a little longer?" The Doctor suggested concerned.
"You have dismantled and re-assembled every single piece of technology, magical and none magical in my house. Come on lover boy, show me everything," Harry grinned wrapping his arms around the Doctor's neck.
"Everything will take a long time, and lover boy, really?" The Doctor sniffed playfully at the pet name.
"Alright then lover man, we have the time," Harry shrugged smiling.
"We do huh," The Doctor smiled warmer tightening his grip around Harry's waist.
"We do," Harry said firmly, his hand cupped the Doctor's jaw, stroking his thumb over it before he leant forwards to kiss him softly. "So, where to first?"
"Well the moons of Helfarnian Neroxis are said to be very romantic," The Doctor grinned, the loneliness and tiredness that were always there in his eyes easing.
"The Moons of Helf…arnian N…eroxis," Harry repeated slowly. "What are we waiting for?"
"Nothing," The Doctor gave him normal boyish grin, letting go of Harry's waist to grab his hand and tug him into the TARDIS.
"Come on Harry! Keep up!" The Doctor shouted excitedly, skidding around a corner.
"You are the one who decided to snog me in the middle of Trafalgar square!" Harry panted, having to take the corner hopping to the side on one leg to avoid hitting it considering the Doctor had a tight hold of his hand.
"I was expressing affection!" The Doctor shouted indignantly.
"Its 1856!" Harry rolled his eyes, glancing over his shoulder at the crowd chasing them.
"You humans and your homophobia!" The Doctor huffed dragging Harry around another corner.
"Hey!" Harry protested at being lumped in with them.
"Did you know that 260 animals display homosexuality but humans are the only animals that display homophobia," The Doctor called over his shoulder as they skidded into the street that held the TARDIS at the very end of it.
"That's interesting dear, but not right now," Harry rolled his eyes again, picking up his speed and over taking the Doctor tugging him behind him.
"You are an offence to God sirs!" A man shouted from the crowd.
"Jesus had two dads, he turned out just fine!" The Doctor called back cheerfully.
"Oh for Merlin's…." Harry groaned as the cries of outrage picked up. Reaching the TARDIS he slammed the doors open and dragged the Doctor inside, slamming the door shut with his back.
"I was expressing my pride in being with you," The Doctor pouted a little.
"I know you were," Harry sighed gripping the Doctor's Victorian style jacket, tugging him forwards so that they were pressed together chest to thighs. "But perhaps we need to consider the laws of whenever and wherever we are as well?"
"Fine," The Doctor pouted a little bit more, but Harry's easily and quickly distracted him by pressing kisses to his defined jaw, over his cheek and to his lips. As the Doctor's hands tightened on Harry's hips the door behind him shook slightly making the Doctor let out a sound of annoyance before he wrapped his arms around Harry's waist and lifted him.
Harry groaned into his mouth as he wrapped his legs around the Doctor's waist. He couldn't stop the gasp that fell from his lips when the Doctor pressed him back against the console of the TARDIS, his hands gripped into the Doctor's jacket as his legs tugged him even closer. The Doctor's warm hands shoved themselves underneath Harry's shirt as his lips trailed down Harry's throat making the wizard drop his head back with a needy groan as he started to move his hips against the arousal that he could feel against his own. Reaching down he gripped the Doctor's hair and slammed their lips back together, biting down at the Doctor's bottom lip and got a low growl he hadn't heard from the Doctor before, but which in return ensured the Doctor pulled noises from him that he wasn't aware that he could make.
"If you let go I swear when I get my hands on you I will hex you black and blue!" Harry snapped.
"Don't worry!" The Doctor gritted out.
"I'm not worried! I'm telling you not to let go or I will be even more pissed than I already am!" Harry glared.
"Why are you pissed now?!" the Doctor complained.
"Why am I….You just had to go looking for trouble didn't you! This was supposed to be a break!" Harry glared.
"It is a break!" The Doctor argued.
"You're hanging over a 1000 ft drop holding onto a branch and I tied to a tree stump waiting for some monster to eat me!" Harry shouted tugging against his ropes.
"It will be fine!" The Doctor assured him.
"I'm hexing you anyway," Harry sighed slumping against his ropes.
"I have a plan!"
"I feel worse!"
"I have it all worked out don't worry!"
"Feeling even worse,"
"Honestly, its going to be perfectly fine!"
"Make sure I don't lose anything,"
"You're not very supportive you know,"
"No, I'm pissed off!"
"I didn't do it on purpose,"
"You never do!"
"Are you really mad?"
"Yes I am!" Harry huffed before sighing when the Doctor looked away. "No I'm not mad at you, I'm scared!"
"I'm not going to let you be hurt," the Doctor said sharply.
"I'm not scared for me you idiot!" Harry shook his head.
"We're both going to be fine," the Doctor smiled at him shifting his grip slightly.
"Alright, what are we going to do?" Harry smiled a little getting a wide grin back from the Doctor.
"Hey there lover man," Harry dropped onto the towel beside the Doctor who squinted open one eyes to peer at Harry leaning over him.
"Enjoying yourself?" the Doctor smiled reaching up to run his fingers through Harry's wet hair.
"Yes, thank you," Harry leant down to kiss him.
"You're wet," The Doctor laughed making a feeble attempt at shoving Harry off.
"I went swimming, of course I'm wet. Three suns, its hot enough here we'll both be dry and ten minutes," Harry snorted shaking his head to dislodge all the water on his hair onto the Doctor who shouted in protest, laughing too much to really be able to stop him.
"This is gorgeous," Harry sighed dropping his head onto the Doctor's shoulder and stared out at the purple sea, lying on the white sand.
"I thought you would like it here," The Doctor put his arm over Harry's shoulder, turning to kiss Harry's temple.
"I found somewhere that does trips out into the desert," Harry said after a minute.
"Harry Potter, are you telling me that you are bored?" The Doctor turned quickly to look at Harry, amusement glittering in his eyes.
"No!" Harry said quickly.
"Yes you are! Mr, I want a relaxing, no excitement trip," The Doctor started laughing.
"I said no peril, danger, or adventures! Not excitement," Harry pouted.
"You are missing it," The Doctor laughed rolling over so Harry was on his back, and he was hovering over him.
"I'm not," Harry turned away, the Doctor nipped his cheek still laughing.
"Yes you are, just a little,"
"A tiny bit,"
"….maybe a little," Harry bit his lip turning back to the Doctor who smiled at him.
"You are perfect,"
"Shut up," Harry blushed shoving at the Doctor's chest.
"But you are," The Doctor leant down and kissed him deeply, wrapping his arms around the Doctor' neck Harry's eyes flickered shut as he soaked up the feelings drifting through him.
"Exterminate," Harry ducked and rolled out of the way of the flash the Darlek shot at him.
"Back off now!" Harry glared at the Darleks standing between him and his lover who was chained to the wall.
"Your threats mean nothing!" The Darleks called in unison.
"How about now?!" Harry shot a spell at one of the Darleks smirking when the Doctor burst out into raspy laughter when Harry shrunk three of the Darleks down to the size of mice. "Now out of my way!"
The next ten minutes were filled with flashes, bangs and Harry discovering which spells worked on the Darleks and which didn't. He cast a quick spell, even while the Darleks were still smoking, or rolling around with tiny little voices as mouse sized threats, to undo the Doctor's chains, catching him as he slumped forwards into Harry's arms.
Lowering them both to the ground he pressed his lips to the Doctor's, pushing all of his love, his need and his magic into the kiss, cupping his cheeks to push more magic into the Doctor's body, healing him from the injuries the Darleks had inflicted on him.
"Hey, I'm ok, I'm ok," The Doctor whispered, wrapping his arms around him tightly.
"I thought I had lost you!" Harry choked tears filling his eyes.
"I told you I would try my best, and my best is very good!" The Doctor assured him hugging him tightly despite the dull throb that would still be going through his body for the next day. Harry held onto him tightly, burying his face into the Doctor's shoulder and breathing in his scent desperately, feeling his heart still pounding as fast as when the doorway had come down between them in the abandoned building they had been searching.
"I love you," Harry breathed out the words that had been screaming through his mind for the last five hours.
"What?" The Doctor gasped tugging away so that he could look into Harry's green eyes, his hands holding Harry's face in place.
"I love you, I'm in love with you, I love y…" Harry let out a squeak as the Doctor tackled him from their kneeling positions on the floor, his lips seizing Harry's and his hands moved restlessly over his body, pausing to caress and touch before moving to the next place until he reached the hem of Harry's shirt and yanked it off. Something Harry quickly returned the favour of.
Harry was panting harshly, his breath blowing across the sweaty plains of the Doctor's chest, his body still humming and singing brightly with pleasure and tingling in the best of ways. The Doctor's hand was brushing up and down his own sweaty back, down to the rise of his bum and back up to his hair line before sweeping back down in a rhythm that was succeeding in making him sleepy.
The floor they were lying on wasn't the most cleanest or comfiest but right now Harry couldn't feel the need to move, his heart was finally settling down in his chest, he was warm and sated and at peace in the arms of this man, despite the danger they faced almost constantly and the amount of times he felt the desire to strangle this man.
"I love you too," The Doctor breathed out softly making Harry lift his head from the Doctor's chest to look at him a little stunned.
"I love you so much," Harry sighed brushing his fingers through the Doctor's hair leaning down to kiss him gently.
"Gelmir," The Doctor whispered so softly that Harry barely heard him even as close as they were.
"What?" Harry asked lifting his head again a little.
"My name. Gelmir," The Doctor breathed out, his eyes nervous as they swept over Harry's face for some sort of reaction. A reaction Harry was pretty sure was wide eyes and his heart stopping before restarting at a pace that had he not been the Master of Death he would be seriously worried might be leading to a heart attack.
"Gelmir," The name tasted like the most precious diamond on his tongue as he spoke it with the reverence that the knowledge deserved.
"I never thought I would hear that name from someone else again, never mind from someone that I love," The Doctor smiled shakily, his fingers brushing over Harry's face.
"Thank you," Harry smiled kissing the Doctor's palm.
"Use it, when we're like this, when its us, when we're alone together?" The Doctor requested softly making Harry smile.
"Oh wow Harry look at that! And that! Oo look at this! Oh wow what's this? Oh wow…" Harry shook his head fondly as he watched his lover bouncing from one stall to the next with the impression of a hyperactive Jultinsine bouncing ball, eagerly taking in everything that he could see at the market.
They were in a wizarding colony in 5097 buying the ingredients they needed for the last of the potion, though it appeared that there list was going to have to wait for them to come across the items they needed as his lover was taking in every single thing at the market.
It was pretty amazing, the coloured stalls and bright, warm atmosphere, the laughter surrounding them and chatter, the bright colours and flashy items were all completely fascinating to see, and he was trailing behind the Doctor looking around with almost as much interest, almost.
Harry chuckled as he paused at one stall and eyed the products sitting colourfully packed. 'Weasley Wizarding Wheezes' were declared proudly from the sign, the products still in production. Harry looked up at the man behind the stall and had to stifle another laugh as he turned and hurried after his bouncing lover. Apparently the redheaded gene survived a few thousand years.
"Here's the blood we need," Harry called stopping the Doctor from bouncing off as he stopped in front of a potions stall and started picking through the different vials to find the exact one that they needed. A quick transfer of money and he turned to find out where his Doctor had run off to.
"Surprise," The Doctor appeared in front of him with several crystals in a box that they needed.
"These are perfect, thank you," Harry kissed the Doctor's cheek as he looked over the box of crystals happily.
"I think I saw a herbs stand over here as well," The Doctor linked their fingers together and they slowly made their way through the stalls together.
"Hey there strangers," Amy grinned as she raced over to the TARDIS where it was parked across from their house, she pounced on the Doctor in a hug, Rory who was close behind her reached out and tugged Harry into a hug, shocking him slightly before he wrapped his own arms around Rory and hugged him back.
"We've only been gone two weeks to you," Harry chuckled as he and the Doctor swapped.
"And how long has it been to you two?" Amy asked letting go of Harry and linking their arms together to lead him across the road to their house.
"About eight months," Harry flushed glancing at Amy concerned that this would upset her but she was merely smiling happily.
"Have you been having a good time?" Rory asked from behind them.
"Brilliant," The Doctor grinned from beside him.
"Eventful," Harry smiled amused.
"You both look happy, and tanned, I have never really seen you with a tan before," Amy blinked at the Doctor as they got into the Pond's living room.
"We ended up trekking across the Sahara in 1734 for three months when someone managed to come across a killed sand worm tribe from space," Harry said dryly as he sat down on the sofa beside the Doctor, Amy and Rory sitting opposite them laughing.
"Are you staying for long?" Amy asked.
"We're going to go back to the house for a few weeks," the Doctor nodded.
"But there is something that we want to do here first," Harry added.
"Everything ok?" Rory asked concerned.
"Everythings fine. And hopefully we can make it a little better," The Doctor smiled happily, practically wriggling in his seat. Harry reached into his jacket and pulled out two vials, one red and one murky grey and placed them on the coffee table in front of Amy, Rory's eyes widened and he stared at Harry hopefully.
"I didn't realise I had been hurt again, not really sure I want to take them," Amy joked before looking a little concerned when Rory's hand gripped her's tightly, looking between Rory and Harry she frowned a little. "What's going on?"
"When I was healing you I noticed that there was some damage done to your womb, Rory explained what had happened. I looked through some healing, and the Doctor took me to future wizarding colonies and countries where their healing is more advanced and we managed to put together this. The red one heals the damage that has been done and the grey one reverses any damage that has been done since and gets…everything working as it should. If you become pregnant you might need further potions and such to help support it though," Harry explained softly. Amy's hand went to her mouth and she stared at them wide eyed through tears.
"Really?" She sniffed.
"Really," The Doctor said quietly. Harry placed his hand on his knee and squeezed it in comfort knowing how hard this was for him as well, how much he blamed himself for what had happened.
"There is something else as well," Harry said after a few moments thinking that is was best to just get all of it out.
"We think that we can get Melody back," The Doctor said quickly, Amy and Rory staring at them completely shocked.
"We've travelled around and put everything together, mixing magic with the TARDIS we think we can do it," Harry nodded.
"H…How…" Rory stuttered shaken.
"It's a dark spell from my world that parents use when their children are kidnapped or when they run away to bring them back to them, I need some of your blood. We'll use the time travelling ability of the TARDIS to summon Melody from wherever she is in the universe and time as young as possible," Harry explained simply. The Doctor placed his hand over Harry's and held tightly as Amy and Rory sat in front of them stunned.
"Can, can we do it? Now?" Rory asked shakily.
"Yeah, we can," the Doctor smiled standing up. Amy and Rory lunged to their feet together, gripping tightly onto one another, clearly terrified that this was going to turn out to be a dream or some horrible joke. Harry stood and smiled at them following the Doctor out of the house and back across to the TARDIS.
Harry and the Doctor stepped over to the console and gave the two of them some privacy as they stood hugging each other tightly at the door.
"You ok," Harry asked quietly touching the Doctor's cheek.
"We can do this right?" he asked nervously.
"Yes, I really think we can," Harry smiled comfortingly.
"Lets get this show on the road then," The Doctor sucked in a breath and let it out before he spun the console buttons into the right places and then slammed them into drive.
"Where are we?" Rory asked when they stopped moving looking curious.
"Just outside of the world's atmosphere. If Harry gets caught using this spell they'll try to arrest him," The Doctor told them as Harry moved over to the area they had cleared and drawn a pentagram.
"Its just because it can be used to call children back when they have been removed for their safety or have run away, it can be used up until someone is twenty three," The Doctor reassured them.
"We're ready. Doctor do you have the blanket?" Harry called from inside the circle.
"Here," The Doctor picked up Melody's blanket and took Amy's hand to lead her into the circle knowing Rory would follow.
"You need to stand here and here, Doctor you need to be here," Harry instructed as he took the blanket and laid it carefully over three of the crystals. The three of them stood around him in a semi circle. Harry looked up at them and took a breath, meeting each of their eyes in turn before he nodded and started a low chant in Latin holding his hands palms up over the blanket.
The three of them shifted a little when a wave of power went through the area and swept through them, lighting up the four crystals behind them and the crystals underneath the blanket. Harry's chanting picked up and the power flowing around them picked up making them feel as though they were buzzing.
"Ok, I need you both to drop three drops of blood onto the blanket and a drop of blood onto the crystals behind you, Doctor I need a drop of blood from you onto the blanket," Harry said quickly pausing in his chanting before picking it back up again.
Rory bent and picked up the dagger that Harry nodded to and sliced the pad of his thumb before passing it to Amy and moving to do as Harry had instructed. There was a dull throb as the magic increased and went through the area even more powerfully than before, Harry chanting changed to an even faster pitch before he nodded to the Doctor who clicked his fingers at the direction of the console.
Golden light flickered out from the centre and spread out in a stream towards them, winding around the outside of the crystals before spreading upwards and over them until it was almost like they were surrounded in a blanket of the golden light. Harry closed his eyes and dropped his head back, his concentration clear on his face as his chanting became more of a stream of muttering.
A purple glow flowed out from Harry and twined around them, starting to mingle with the golden light. The TARDIS sprung to life around them, whirling and throbbing to life, Harry's magic joined it whirrling and dancing, and gold and the purple mixed together and spun around them in a shining light.
Harry's head dropped back and he raised himself on his knees and snapped his arms out to the sides as his chanting became more intense again. The twin lights snapped down to the floor before their dancing became more focused, swirling from the floor upwards it spun around them clockwise, the two colours becoming almost like bands and twirling around each other even as they moved around the four of them, rising up to seal them in again.
"Amy, Rory, wish for her, wish for her with everything that have and all the love you have," Harry said softly, keeping his palms out stretched and the spell going.
Amy blinked before she reached out and took Rory's hand again, holding it close to her chest she closed her eyes and remembered the feeling of Melody in her arms, the smell of her, the sound of her crying, the sound of her gurgling, the warmth of her in her arms.
Rory squeezed Amy's hand and bit his lip before closing his own eyes. He remembered the brief time that he had known Melody, he remembered her beautiful little face, he remembered her scent, her blonde hair, her ruby cheeks, her tiny little hands and fingers.
"You too," Harry smiled at the Doctor who blinked at him shocked. "You loved her to, remember her," He encouraged. The Doctor stared at him for a second before closing his eyes. He remembered her voice, his happiness for Amy and Rory and the grief he remembered and felt at her loss. He remembered Amy's eyes in the tiny face and he remembered Rory chin - which he seriously hoped that she grew out of.
Harry felt the tug on his magic and gripped it tightly tugging back. Sweat started dripping from his forehead as he pulled as hard as he could, tugged towards himself.
Amy, Rory and the Doctor opened their eyes shocked as they felt the TARDIS tremble and the swell of the magic rose like a crescendo before disappearing suddenly, knocking them all onto their backs with a thump where they were lay stunned staring at the ceiling of the TARDIS at least, until, they heard the shrill cry of a baby.
All of them sat sharply up and stared at the centre of the pentagram on the floor where a crying baby girl was lying. Amy and Rory scrambled to their feet and surrounded their daughter, both of them staring at her like she was the most precious jewel in the entire universe. Amy stroked her fingers over Melody's head and cheeks cooing gently, Rory's fingers were rapidly undoing his sleeping suit and started running his fingers searchingly over his tiny daughter making sure she was ok.
"Thank you, thank you so much," The Doctor dropped onto his knees beside Harry and cupped his face gently pressing a few dozen kisses to his lips rapidly.
"You Don't have to thank you, you gave me everything, I will do the same for you," Harry kissed the Doctor's wrist and then leant up to kiss him softly before they sat back and watched Amy and Rory with Melody, Amy now holding her close to her chest while Rory had his arms wrapped around the both of them.
The Doctor wrapped his arm around Harry's waist and held a chain from his finger in front of Harry's eyes with a brilliant sea blue round stone hanging from the chain.
