Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: The Doctor, the TARDIS
Summary: In that way he had, he hid his own memories.
Author's Note: This is a drabble I wrote for eve11 for fandom_stocking , one I forgot to post before now. She shares my love of the TARDIS as a character, and I remembered what the Second Doctor said to Victoria. This was the result.
Disclaimer: As much as I wish it were otherwise, no Whoniverse characters are mine. They are the sole properties of the BBC and their respective creators. I intend no copyright infringement and take no coin. I do, however, love them all and thank the BBC for letting me play in its sandbox.
He didn’t talk about it to others, nor dwell on it himself. In that way he had, he even hid his own memories. Like all lovely things he found them too joyful to be without pain, and he was now too old to willingly accept even beautiful torments. And so he let sleep all the images and sounds of how it had been that day. But sometimes, when She hummed and sang to Herself and to him, when there were no other beings on board, he would remember the time they talked. When he did, he would weep for joy.
