Title: In Our Youth Time
Characters/Pairings: Rory/Amy, Melody Pond, Eleventh Doctor
Summary: The Doctor makes a different choice at Demon's Run and Melody Pond's life is changed forever.
Author's Notes: A few things to note about this story. I wanted a version of River Song where she grew up as Melody on the Tardis with her family. The story is canon up to A Good Man Goes to War, after that it diverges. The major things to note are that 1. Mels never existed, because 2. Melody can't regenerate. In my eyes, she is more like the Tardis than like a Timelord (why she can fly her, etc), but she only has one life and I'm fine with thinking that it's a life that always has Alex Kingston's body. The only other thing I'd say is that because of the changes the Doctor made, he and Melody will only ever have a familial relationship (uncle/niece).
