You know when you see a photograph of someone you know but it’s from years before you met them, and it’s like they’re not quite…finished.
I LOVE RIVER SO MUCH
I wish I could tell you that you’ll be loved. That you’ll be safe and cared for and protected. But this isn’t the time for lies. What you are going to be, Melody, is very very brave.
100 favorite Doctor Who quotes [25/100]
→ You. Me. Handcuffs. Must it always end this way?
#this is painful #like more painful than other gifsets from tatm #because river#like river had to watch her mother watch her husband die #and then she had to watch her husband watch her mother die #and she always had to be the strong one
go to your room and think about what youve done
#look at this face #just LOOK AT IT #she just TOLD her mother to go #she told her to do it #to be with the man she loved #because she knows the feeling #because they are ponds #and their love transcends fear #and they’d sacrifice anything for even a longshot at never being separated from the one they love #and you can see it in her eyes that there is a sadness and yet a ferocity too #she’s looking up to her mother #because she’s going to be just like her.
Upon that I kiss your hand, and I call you my queen.
