The Girl Who Was Promised the Stars

River stared down at the communicator in her hand, its little green lights no longer flashing. Only one thought went through her mind, and with the nature of it mixed with the bone chilling scene she just witnessed, she was unable to stop herself before the words left her mouth.
“She was only a few years older than my daughter…”
Realizing what she just said, the professor looked over at the Doctor. His eyes were still on Miss Evangelista. He heard her, definitely, but there was no reaction.
Of course not, River thought to herself, He’s only just met me.
It wasn’t until much later that those words clicked for the Doctor. By then, he and Donna were back in the TARDIS, shaken but on their way to their next adventure. “My daughter,” she’d said. River Song had a daughter. River Song knew his name. She was his… would be his…
Was this girl his daughter too?
AU where the Doctor and River Song have a child.

I know you must be scared right now. Everything’s so new to you. Don’t be scared, my girl. I promise I’ll be back soon.
That was two years ago.
When the Doctor runs into his daughter in 21st century London, he’s forced to face his shortcomings as a father and find a way to regain her trust. Meanwhile, dark forces at work threaten to tear the already broken family apart, and their only hope lies in the hands of a dead woman.
