Author's summary: Tell stories; be kind; remember. A response to The Big Bang.
Characters: Eleven, River Song, Amy Pond, Rory Williams
Warnings: Spoilers for S5

Recced because: This captures the spirit of S5 perfectly.  It's gorgeously written and really touching.  It's almost enough to bring you to tears.  I'll leave you with an excerpt:

This is a story about a boy made of plastic who believes he is human. He kills the woman he loves and watches the universe end. He believes in miracles.

One day, (so Amy’s imaginary friend says) his love will live again, and until then she will sleep, and he will not leave her. He is more human than he’s ever been, because he has to be, he must be, or he is a monster. He is a plastic copy of a dead man and he is alive, with all the heart and soul that makes Rory Williams who he is.
