Author's Summary: Missing scene from Mummy on the Orient Express.
Characters/Pairings: Clara Oswald, Twelfth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This was a wonderful moment that we didn't get to see from the episode, and I think the author fit this missing scene in nicely, just like a perfect puzzle piece. Not only that, but some really great Twelfth Doctor introspection is captured here, especially his feelings toward Clara, and even more the intimacy that we do not see because he isn't the sort to express such things directly. Working with the TARDIS, the Doctor wants to bring an unconscious Clara to a peaceful, comfortable spot, and I think underneath it all, he wants to somehow keep her from leaving him. A really great little piece that has a lot of depth to it.
