A life needs saving, and he is there.

The bridge is broken. He fixes it.

The sky falls. He puts it back up.

The stars fade, and he sets them on fire again.

The Time War threatens the universe and he kills his own race to save a place he has no loyalty to.

No one notices he’s broken, faded. No one sees that he’s fallen from the pedestal they’ve set him upon. No one cares that he needs fixing, too. They all look but they never see.

Time turns, and he stands still at the very center, watching, waiting.
