Chapter 1: I could save the world but lose you

He had already lost a world. Not lost. Killed. Murdered, in cold blood, millions of beings. Because he thought it a lesser evil. He knew the visions of Gallifrey dying would never leave him.

He swore he would never let any other world die.

It didn’t mean a thing. He was deceving himself. Saving worlds would not redeem his crime. But it was the right thing to do.

Why was he hesitating now, over the life of just one alien?

How could she be more important to him than the whole world?

He had no idea.

But somehow she was.

Chapter 2: It didn't feel like dancing

It didn't feel like dancing. Not to anyone who looked at them, not even to Rose.

It wasn’t supposed to.

But deep inside, under the leather jacket, his hearts danced and cried, knowing some things were never meant to be, trying to live the moment, and wishing it would never stop. For a short while he forgot burns and scars, he forgot what he had done, and simply lived.

Because holding Rose’s hands in his and sneering at the idea of “Captain envy”, he realised he would do anything to be able to tell her that this once everybody lived.
