Author's Summary: It didn't end in The Library. For either of them. (Eleven/River, Amy. Spoilers through Pandorica)
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor/River Song, Amy Pond

The fic is a truly fascinating character study of the Doctor and River, and their very complex relationship with each other. River's status as a dead hologram is not shied away from, nor is the Doctor's fundamental discomfort around her -- and yet it completely works. The characterization is amazing, and the execution is perfect.
