tenacious_err: RIVER/DOCTOR - RAINBOW PLANET OF UNICORNS.
"Unicorns!" The Doctor declares, twirling as he excites the TARDIS.
River blinks against the bright sunlight and raises a hand to shield her eyes. "What?"
"Unicorns, River!" He gestures to the expansive field in front of them, the greenest green; unicorns pepper the landscape, their bright silvery manes nearly reflective in the sunlight. "I give you rainbows, silver lakes, trees so tall they can touch the stars! -- not actually, but there are actual stars here! Tiny little menageries made out of the dusts of a thousand different burning stars and planets; you can buy them in the market place!" Grabbing her hand, he pushes her in front of him and toward the nearest animal. "But most importantly - unicorns."
River rolls her eyes as a few of the creatures look up, appearing almost as if they're glaring at the Doctor for interrupting their solitude.
"I can see that, dear, but why--"
He silences her with a finger over her lips. "In the last week, we have been chased by Sontarans, shot at by Cybermen, stepped on by Adricaracks, narrowly evaded two murderous plots-"
"-technically they weren't for us, sweetie-"
"-jumped off a cliff - handcuffed! -"
"- don't tell me you didn't enjoy it-"
"-and I was forced to eat beans." He leans in conspiratorially. "Beans, River."
