my-ameliapond started following you
Oops. Busted. Majorly busted.
"…This ‘sn’t the kid you’re looking for?"
[ Assuming she’s not met him this old before (which, probably, is the safest thing to be doing), she’s got no idea who he is. He’s still an infant—Or, perhaps he’s a toddler now. Time flies when you’re immortal, and all that. ]
how dare u ignore me after ive made 0 attempts at talking to u
Oh…Amy. Amy honey. No. That was never it. I…Of course you’re good enough.
[Reaching for her hand he kissed each of her knuckles.]
I was stupid. There’s really not much explanation other than pure stupidity and a bruised ego.
Was stupid, are stupid, it doesn’t really matter.
I don’t forgive you, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to. But I love you, and I don’t want to leave you.
But if you ever do anything like this again, I won’t have a choice.
You wouldn’t. But ‘m tryin’ to stick to that whole bein’ careful thing for everyone. ‘S actually been working out well.
[Winter stands back and laughs quietly as she watches Jasmine toddle towards Amy with a giggle of her own. Jasmine is patting her mother’s cheek and already babbling on about seeing her and Jude.]
Oh I know! ‘S crazy. An’ she’s pretty speedy too.
[Jude’s wings moved quickly as he took everything in while his mother gave Amy a nod.]
This ‘s. Four months old, stubborn as hell an’ I think he’s very excited t’meet you.
No trouble I don’t know about then? Leading a super boring, average, but safe life?
[ And while Jasmine’s stringing together words in sentences, Amy’s cracking internally at how much time has gone by, and how much of her daughter’s life she’s missed. They need to figure out something—Like, Creeper and Winter can have her one week, and Amy can have her the next. Something that doesn’t involve long periods of time where she doesn’t get to see one of her parents. ]
[ Wings—Those are—How didn’t she notice them before? Must’ve been all the fuss and excitement over Jasmine. ]
I see he’s a little more like you than I thought.
[He does exactly that, kneeling in front of her and staring up.]
Amelia Jessica Pond…I fucked up royally. And I’ve regretted it every minute of every day since it happened. I know you’ve no reason to believe me. But I swear to you…It won’t happen again.
[ She laughs, though it doesn’t sound particularly happy. ]
Oh, I don’t know, I’m sure you could do much better than that.
[ A sigh, as she shakes her head absentmindedly. ]
I just want to know why, Evan. Was I not—Was I not good enough, or—?
I know, I know. ‘S horrible of me to even mention but think about all the times I’ve gotten snacked on.
[At Amy saying it was safe to come in, Winter grinned and nudged the redheaded toddler inside while carrying Jude in her arms.]
Been hopin’ you’d say that.
It’s fine. But I hope you know that I’d never—I mean, not if I was thinking clearly.
[ At the sight of Jasmine, there was something in her eyes that lit up. And for the first time in, god knows how long, Amy was smiling. An actual, proper smile. With all this chaos in her life, her daughter’s just about the only stable thing. And she’s missed her so much.
On seeing her mother, the child stumbled forward, as Amy scooped her up and held her, for the first time in forever. ]
You’re so heavy—Soon I won’t be able to lift you at all! [ She’s talking to the child, peppering her face with kisses. ]
And, [ turning back to Winter ] —This must be Jude. Gosh, he’s gorgeous.
It’s so good to see you all.
Wasn’t sure if you wanted me ‘round. We’ve barely talked.
I miss you, Amy.
I hope you’re ready to get down on your knees and beg for me back.
Because that might work.
wininthetardis said: [Cautiously peeking] Just so you know I’ve Vervain in my system…’S it safe to come in?
I’m not going to—
[ She’s cutting herself off with a sigh, maybe she’s even a little hurt that Winter actually felt the need to tell her. ]
You can come in.
Can I come in, Amare?
What’s stopping you?
