The most important leaf in human history.  It’s full of stories. Full of history. And full of a future that never got lived. Days that should’ve been that never were… passed on to me. This leaf isn’t just the past, it’s a whole future that never happened.

Okay then. That’s what I’ll do; I will tell you a story. Can you hear them? All these people who lived in terror of you and your judgement. All these people who’s ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves to you. Can you hear them singing? Oh, you like to think you’re a god. You’re not a god, you’re just a parasite, eaten out with jealousy and envy and longing for the lives of other. You feed on them, on the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow! So.. So.. Come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you’ve got a big appetite because I’ve lived a long life and I’ve seen a few things. 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 bythe mind of a madman. I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I havelost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told and knowledge that must never bespoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come onthen! Take it! Take it all, baby! Have it! You have it all!

Come on then, take mine. Take my memories. I know you’ve got a big appetite. I have lived a long life and I have seen a few things. 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 mad man. I 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, knowledge that must never be spokenknowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on then! Take it.
