"Not sure if I am an evil genius, or just someone who watches too much TV"
I am a Texas college student (studying Management of Information Systems), and I am a Tech enthusiast, computer geek and sci-fi fan.
I queue most posts but will do a post dump about once every few weeks.
In The Imposible Astronaut when River tells Rory about her relationship with the Doctor
- I really don’t believe what she says about “Every time we meet, I know him more and he knows me less.” I think that might be the general pattern of their travels but that is just not true from what we’ve seen of their timelines. There are times when they do move somewhat in the same order .
- I’m not exactly sure to what she is referring when she says “The first time I met him, he knew all about me.” Does she mean Let’s Kill Hitler? Somehow I don’t think so. I think (and I was working on a fanfiction for this but then I gave up because it sucked) it is possible that she met the Doctor when she was a little girl (maybe just after regenerating into Mels) and he told her about him, which is why she knew that the Doctor was always there to save the day (except at the Titanic and such). And she trusted him because he knew all about her. Anyway, I think she probably met him before her timeline in Let’s Kill Hitler… what do you think?
I never thought about the second one but that makes sense. unless the silence told her all that stuff about the doctor. but maybe that is what he did during the time between aGMGtW and LKH, River told him what he needed to do and then after they did what they needed to she drugged him to forget (because River does what River wants, and River doesn’t give a single fuck about timelines and continuity if anyone she loves is in danger (including her self) so she did what she had to to keep her self safe and to protect her timeline)
this is an add on to This talking more about why the Doctor and River belong together.
Most of the Doctor’s companions see him as a savior. they rarely see his dark side and mostly ignore it when they do. But River doesn’t she sees his dark side, she was raised only knowing his darkside. and she not only knows of it, she calls him on it.
in aGMGtW River tells the Doctor what he already knew, that he isn’t always the good guy, he isn’t a savior, he is a monster. but she doesn’t just tell him that he is a monster like many villains have, she told him that he can try to do better, and nonverbaly she tells him that she still loves him.
and if anyone has the right to hate the doctor for his dark side its her. his darkside was why she was taken from her parents, why she was brainwashed and emotionally tormented but she doesn’t hate him she loves him.
so ya his companions give him a reason to try to hide his darkside, but she knows it but wants to help.
and he knows her darkside too but doesn’t hate her for it, he tries to help her through it.
so ya its a bit of a two haves make a whole, two broken people find eachother and fix eachother. that is why I love River/Doctor because they fix eachother not just her patching him or makes him hide stuff under the rug.
RIVER SONG IS THE GREATEST FEMALE CHARACTER TO EVER HAVE BEEN WRITTEN EVER IN THE HISTORY OF EVER
try greatest character ever. Moffat has to keep all her timeline in his head, and it all makes relative sense.
just her relationship, her family, her timeline, her character. SHE IS AMAZING
DOCTOR [about River]: She’s really, really good.
AMY: [proudly]: My daughter.
DOCTOR: My point. [to River] But we’re not married- that wedding never counted.
RIVER: Which wedding?
DOCTOR: The one in the aborted time-line, when I was disguised as a robot replica of myself.
RIVER: Could you be more specific?
-The Doctor Who Companion: Editing The Angels Take Manhattan
really glad they removed that, but it would suggest that he and River have more than one wedding which would be fun (also would make River=Marilyn even more 100% confirmed) and them keep having more wedding would be funny.
but the Doctor accepted that he and River got married back in the prequel to Asylum of the Daleks when he said that he couldn’t talk to the woman because he was married, so if he did say that it was probably just to wind her up (which he would do in return for all the times she winded him up)
