Author's Summary: Strax is concerned for the Doctor and the lady with the giant head
Characters/Pairings: River Song, Strax, Eleven, Jenny, Madame Vastra
Strax's Sontaran up-bringing has left him confused about many things. He thinks that River's hair is a part of her head and he doesn't understand why his allies keep pressing their faces together, but he does understand strength when he sees it – even if he doesn't completely understand its source. His misinterpretations are as hilarious as they are tragic, but his observations are still very keen and provide an intriguing insight on the Doctor's relationship with River.
They are two. They are one. It is a curious thing to see. Strax has always considered the Doctor to be individual, singular, but the way the Doctor rests against the woman tells another story. Strax considers the notion that even an individual may find comfort with another, and the woman is certainly singular as well. He has never seen another quite like her (her head being only one of her unique qualities) - perhaps that is a reason the Doctor takes solace in her. The woman must also know what it is like to be alone. Strax feels a brief twinge of companion-feeling for his fellow Sontarans, but the food is certainly better at Paternoster Row, and even though he does not press his face to his mistresses', they are worthy allies.
