I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told and knowledge that must never be spoken.
I found you. I found you in words, like you knew I would. That’s why you told me the story. The brand new, ancient blue box. Oh, clever. Very clever! Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something blue.
