Summary: The Doctor returned to Earth and mourned the shining world of Gallifrey...


The first time back, after the war, after everything was gone, he'd stood alone amongst a field of green, an ocean of grass flush with spring growth.

He'd held out his hands, walked with eyes unfocused, thoughts countless light years away drifting in the empty space that was all that remained of a shining world.

He'd bowed his head, breath heavy, eyes moist, hearts battle scarred, nothing left but the memory of endless plains and towering mountains beneath Gallifreyan skies, and the phantom touch of red grass beneath his fingers.

Amid shades of green, he quietly grieved what was lost.
