Pairings: Eleven/River, Twelve/River, Clara/Danny
Characters: Twelve, Clara, Danny, River, Eleven
Note: It took me ages to find my inner voice for the 12th Doctor. It came last week during “Time Heist.” But after all the River callbacks in “The Caretaker,” I wanted to depart from otters and a “Time Heist” alternate take for a bit and see what would have happened if the Doctor really had taken Clara and Danny to the one of the Frost Fairs. This contains spoilers for “The Caretaker.”
The title comes from an inscription engraved in the pedestrian tunnel under London’s Southwark Bridge.
Summary: Ignoring Danny, Clara rushed out of the TARDIS and into the snow. Carefully, she crept up the hill and found herself overlooking one of the bridges spanning the Thames. A man and a woman danced around the ice, arms wrapped around at each other. Her eyes narrowed. Was that Stevie Wonder sitting at a piano?
