Clara felt a weight pressing down on her, and she was once again struggling, trying to get it off of her, her eyes still shut tightly. She tried to thrash and hit at the form on top of her, her fingers curling into fabric, digging into it as if it was a lifeline. A few more moments passed, and she stopped struggling, merely shaking beneath him, broken sobs passing her lips as she finally woke up. The young woman clung to the Doctor when she realized her had been the weight on her, tears tracking down her face.
"I-I was… I was… I-I don’t know what h-happened, Doctor," she stammered, pressing her face to his shoulder. "I-I felt like… L-like something was trying… N-no, something was killing me, something was! B-but it wasn’t me they were killing!"
What was happening to her?
The Doctor couldn’t help but let some sorrow show in his eyes. This was the result, wasn’t it? While he’d worked to make sure her memories of her other lives wouldn’t constantly haunt her, she would still get glimpses into them all. Glimpses of her own deaths. So many she must’ve had. He couldn’t dare to think of all the possibilities.
A Dalek Asylum and an icy death in Victorian London were two too many already.
"Shh…Clara, it’s okay. It was just a nightmare." The Time Lord mumbled, placing his fingers to her cheek and temple, hoping perhaps to telepathically calm her. He also hoped to find the memory, suppress it further.
She’d saved him. She’d done the impossible and saved him countless times. Just an ordinary little girl and he’d dragged her into this. She didn’t deserve this torture.
only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low, only hate the road when you’re missin’ home, only know you love her when you let her go.. and you let her go

Does anyone have the leaked version of episode 2 they could direct me to? Both Bae and I will be at work tomorrow when it airs and would like to still be able to browse tumblr without spoilers.
We will not post anything about the contents until the episode airs. We just don’t want to be frustrated at work.
Can anyone help us out a bit?
“That’s brilliant in theory; except I’ve actually been paying you, mate. See the problem here?”
"I don’t see any problem, no."
Did you know that in 900 years of time and space I've never met someone who wasn't important before?

I'm the Doctor and I was here to help. (Advice tag may have triggers)
