"If we're going to hurt anyway, why don't we hurt together?"
The aftermath of Manhattan. River is determined to hide the damage even if it kills her. And it just might.

Perfect in the action, perfect in the characterization, perfect in the shipping. I tried to keep my River/Eleven obsession about in check in those, and that's the multi-chap I pick, so make of that what you will!Summary:
With Lake Silencio inexorably approaching, the Doctor wonders if it's time to fulfil his first and last promise to River. But the River he finds isn't used to being the one who has to say 'spoilers.' So they compromise: an archaeological expedition on a stormy, hostile moon where an ancient danger lurks behind every shadow.
