A/N: Entry for [livejournal.com profile] who_contest's "Vacancy" challenge. When I saw these pictures online, I had the idea to write a fic around them. There is a great likelihood that Class will contradict what I've written here, but that's okay.

"This is what I wanted to show you. We had a meeting to name this building. There were a few suggestions, but there was only one that everyone agreed upon." )

For decades Rory had toyed with the idea of visiting Leadworth, but he had never found the time. Work kept him busy and he also didn't have access to a car. It was just a thought that he kept on the mental back burner; something to revisit once every few years. But then he had noticed the date the other day and it was a notion he couldn't put off any longer. )

For over fifteen hundred years he had protected the Pandorica, from raids and wars and through perilous journeys. He had been buried alive and drowned and stabbed and shot. And it was all for Amy. Amy Pond from Leadworth. His girlfriend, his fiancée. The only woman in the world that mattered to him. The woman he loved. )

Rory stood there, too stunned for words. He was a holding of the Crown? That made him no better than common property. He was practically a slave again. )

It was the best Rory could offer. Yes, it was a ploy to get home, but if the Crown wanted to prove what was important to them, then they would have to act. They couldn't grant the colonies their independence and leave the Pandorica behind. The box they thought they had controlled for the past century would be lost to the former colony and that was not something that could be condoned. )

It felt strange to speak English again, proper English with other people with English accents. When Rory had realized he had made to the British colonies in what would be the United States of America, he had nearly burst out laughing. British people sailing to this country on British ships. It was the best scenario he could have hoped for. )

By the time he heard the footsteps behind him, it was too late. The blade entered cleanly through his back, puncturing the place where his heart would have been. He stared down at the tip of the knife protruding from his chest, not quite believing what he was seeing, as though he were looking at someone else's chest. )

It was only now that Rory was realizing that he should have stayed in China. Dragging the Pandorica back to England would take a long time, but then he wouldn't have had to worry about finding a ship and sailing back. He had forgotten how much he hated travelling by boat. )

It took Rory a second to figure out where that was and when he did, a feeling of dread descended up on him. He had seen plenty of maps while with the Knights Templar. Cathay was what they called China in this time period. They were moving the Pandorica to China. )

Seven hundred years. He hadn't seen the Pandorica since it was stolen by the Franks. Rory couldn't believe he was so close to seeing it again. )

A name? Yes, he had one of those. What was it though? "Centurion." It had been a long time since he had spoken to anyone. It felt strange to form words and say them aloud. )

The doors were shoved open and a group of men, six in total, rushed in carrying flaming torches and ropes. Rory jumped to his feet, reaching for his sword, but the men were on him before he could pull the weapon free from its scabbard. )

If he was more than human, then maybe he needed a title to match. So he decided to take a page from the Doctor's book. "I am the Centurion. I have no other name." )

A/N: This behemoth came about when I was watching the reconstruction of "Marco Polo" from "The Beginning" DVD boxset.

The Doctor faltered, unable to articulate his mood. He had set off the last element in a chain of events spanning forty years. It was an elegant solution to a complex problem, something his people used to revel in. And yet, it all felt wrong in a way. )

The timey-wimey detector dinged again as he ran out of the Chestertons’ living room and into the front hall where his coat hung from a hat stand. He had one arm shoved into the sleeve of his coat when he ran back into the living room. “Why are you all standing around?” he asked his companions. )
