Those violent delights have violent ends. For never was a story of more woe, than this great house of sorrow.
AU in which the Doctor is a very sick little boy lying in a hospital bed in a coma and his universe is just a dream. Each of his companions represent the kids in the beds next to him and when they die or leave the ward, they die or leave in his head. Regenerations represent times he nearly woke up or nearly died and the TARDIS represents his life support machine.
Go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done.
‘Twas the night before christmas,
when all through the Hale house,
not a creature was stirring,
because the house had burnt down in a devastating arson attack years previous killing numerous members of the Hale family
Derek spends christmas alone now
