A Very Good Liar by Siani
Chapter 1: Chapter 1
Author's Notes: This is a response to Challenge #277:Deception at LJ's Doctor Who 100.

So it was a lie.

Of course it was a lie.

Well, he was a great liar, he was. The best. Weren't there Trickster Gods (with oddly different iconography) called things like Dak Tar and Duc'Tor on hundreds of worlds? Or at least dozens.

So of course it was a lie.

She could go ahead and remember him as a liar. He didn't care. At least she'd be a live girl remembering a dead liar.

He'd already scraped her ashes off the floor once today.

She could go ahead and hate him. He didn't care.

He kissed her forehead anyway.
