doctor, runaway bride

rec: Hello, Goodnight by myprvvalentine

Story: Hello, Goodnight
Author: myprvvalentine
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 800
Author's Summary: There will be no grand goodbye tour this time. Who would he say goodbye to? Most of them are gone, lost to time and space. But the TARDIS has plans of her own, and the Doctor finds there are people left in the world to say goodbye to.
Characters/Pairings: 11th Doctor, Alfie Owens
Warnings: None. Just watch out for the feels again!

Recced because: The 10th Doctor's swan song was pretty damn sad, but this makes an even sadder point: 11 pretty much has no one he can say goodbye to, they're all dead or lost in time. Except for the son of Craig and Sophie Owens. Bittersweet snapshot of two characters getting a chance to interact in a way that they never did in canon. Bonus for the Doctor that this is someone's life that he directly influenced without destroying.
