The only people for me are the mad ones - the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.

This is always how I enter a room.
The Doctor and River in that episode broke my heart. She was ALWAYS there. She was there during the dark times and she was there when he met Clara. She watched over him like an angel, despite the pain she must have felt when he ignored her. She understood him. She understood that he hated endings. So, she watched him, hoping someday he would remember her and come say goodbye. But he never did. When Madame Vastra contacted her, she came to help knowing that it would be a thankless job. She would act as his guardian angel again, and he would never know.
But he did know. He could always see her. He could always hear her. He always listened to her. He knew she was there, not just in this episode, but the countless times before that she was there for him. Her efforts were not in vain.
They both needed something only he could give. However, he didn’t want to say it. Of course, it’s hard. He was afraid of the pain. But, when he caught her hand, he saw it.
She was in pain too. All the times he had seen her and not give so much as a nod, all of the time she had spoken and he had stayed silent, the closure she never had, they were tearing her up. She was so frustrated with him, and yet here she was, doing what she always did - defying the very laws of the universe to save him.
It was time to let her go. It was time to give her the peace she deserved, even if it hurt. So he kissed her one last time. He kissed her with all the love he had for her.
And then he said goodbye. Of course, she left him with one last spoiler, one last puzzle to solve. It was hope for him that Clara was alive. Then, she said her own goodbye and faded away.
After she vanished, you could see the terrible sadness and pain written on the Doctor’s face.
River Song was no more. She was finally able to sleep in peace.
It was so fitting. But I still want to hurt Moffat for making my OTP hurt like hell.

River Song appreciation post.
Tomo and I decided to mess around in cosplay and came up with some pretty impressive pics!
I heard today was River Song Appreciation Day. :3
Just a friendly reminder that Amy Pond can never give birth to another child of her own and was robbed of raising her only daughter who will die saving the Doctor.
Did I already post this?
Anywho, cosplay of River and Eleven with me and Chris Dorrenbacher.
This is the complaint about River that irks me the most. Alright, first off, the term “Mary-sue” was coined to describe bad fanfiction characters. Because of this, no canon character can be a Mary-sue.
But, disregarding that, if you read the true definition of what a Mary-sue is, the Doctor is the biggest fucking Mary-sue ever. Actually, that would make every companion on the show a Mary-sue, too. So, in a show filled with Mary-sues, where the main character is the worst of them all, you can’t really take one character and complain about her and not complain about the rest.
But, if you’re still going to argue that she is, throwing out my first comments, she still is not a Mary-sue. What constitutes a Mary-sue changes when you change the universe or mythology you’re applying it too. Doctor Who is meant to be larger than life, so every character in it is going to be larger than life. Putting a mysterious stranger in a show about a mysterious stranger seems on par for this show to me.
