I've read this story a couple times and it never fails to make me smile! It's cute how Clara tries to cheer the Doctor up.
Possibly the best thing I've read all week. Especially the bit about Clara being sure he perked up because of her innate kindness. Because, really, she does have innate kindness, it's just that the Doctor doesn't realize it. He's probably too focused on the line-fluffs. *snrk*
Best. Thing. Ever. I was following your ramblings on this on Tumblr and I'm so very glad you made it into this. You win this week's Awesomeness Prize. :)
