"You know...when I was little, I was always looking at the stars?" River stood in the open doorway of the TARDIS, arms crossed in front of her and leaning to the side. "Not these ones, obviously." They were paused in flight for the moment, the air shield protecting River from the atmosphere outside.

First it had been shiny, generically shaped stars and planets on a mobile in her childhood bedroom. Well, considering the door usually locked behind it was really a cell, but she hadn't learned that word yet in those early days. And then living in Leadworth with Amy and Rory, sometimes they would camp out in Amy's yard and listen to her make up stories about what the Doctor was doing out in the universe.

And now she River traveling with him. Married to him, actually. She pointed outwards, looking over her shoulder at her husband.

"Do you know the names of all of them?"

The Doctor never pressed River for details about her past. Sometimes though, little things like that happened. Stories of what it was like in the orphanage or what it was like with Amy and Rory. He had no idea their pasts were that similar that young.

"Not all of them, no," he said as he came up behind River so she could lean against him if she wanted, "That cluster over there has a planet that has grass that tastes like apple pie."

It was getting easier to talk about it, those dark and early days. To him, at least - not so much with her parents. She still loved them dearly, and whatever personal guilt they already carried over their separation from her, she didn't want to add to it.

"Apple pie?" River asked increduously, leaning against him without a second thought. It felt natural, being with him, being close to him. Like two halves destined to meet. "Is it like that throughout or are there variations?"

Whatever River told the Doctor was between the two of them. It seemed to him that it was one of those things that they needed to share with each other and only each other. River was the only one he'd feel comfortable discussing certain things in his life with.

"It depends on the weather. Too little rain, lemon, just the right amount, apple, too much cherry."
