The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 479: No Consolation
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 429: Loss at dw100.

Summary: Amy and Rory are gone and the Doctor is grieving.

This isn’t the first time the Doctor’s been left grieving over the loss of a companion, but somehow it’s one of the worst. He should have tried harder, done more, but now they’re both gone, Amy and Rory, and he can’t follow them.

There should be some consolation in knowing they were together in the past, that they lived long, full, happy lives, and that they rest now in this cemetery side by side, but there isn’t because he failed them and now he can’t even visit them to tell them how sorry he is.

He’s going to miss them.
