i started talking about this on my twitter and a friend of mine asked to make it public and i decided i’d make a full post fleshing out a a mere PORTION of the thoughts i had on this topic and it ended up getting super long, so you know, anybody that is not on the list of the 5 people who still care about this content i am so sorry it will be all regular programming from here, but:
amy pond has an inherent level of intuition that is off the charts, as close as a human being can get to psychic, and this exists entirely independently of both the crack in her wall and of the doctor. she can remember things she shouldn’t, things that are impossible for her to know, without always knowing how or why but simply that She Does.
i’ll explain with the most typically obvious example– the end of the big bang. the doctor resets the universe so that both the cracks in space and time that sucked her family out of reality and the doctor himself don’t exist. have never existed. never touched the universe. but amy pond wakes up on the morning of her wedding and goes to see her mom and dad who have always existed now, had forever been a part of her life and she feels Wrong something is Missing
“do you feel like there’s a great big thing in your head, and you feel like you should remember it, but you can’t?” she says on the phone, talking to rory, who says yes just to placate her but doesn’t really mean it
so she goes on and goes to her wedding and that is when she sees river song walking away from her wedding reception. and she stops laughing. she sits down. she starts crying.
river song who amy never knew. river song who is amy’s daughter. river song who amy doesn’t even know is her daughter yet, who even in the memories she has she only sees her as a powerful mystery–but she still seems to KNOW her, somehow, seems to understand how inextricably intertwined river is in her future even though it hasn’t happened yet. river’s the thing that triggers that reaction, what unblocks her mind to things that shouldn’t be in her mind in the first place because they Did Not Happen and–
her father in a speech starts on an anecdote about how when amy was a kid she told a head teacher she wasn’t real because she looked like a cartoon and amy tells him to Shut Up right there because she’s figuring it out, maybe she knew that that head teacher wasn’t real because she didn’t exist in any of the other universes she knew–
she starts to talk about how when she was a kid she had an imaginary friend and her parents groan and talk about “the therapists we sent her too!” and can you imagine that even when the doctor was Never Real according to the laws of that reality amy’s belief in him was STILL AS STRONG–
and that belief brings him back, or it creates him again. she has weaved the doctor back into reality over nothing but the sheer force of her faith. and the doctor entrusted her with that responsibility because he knew she could do it, more than he knew anyone else could, because he’d Already Seen It
he already saw amelia pond carve a smile into an apple and say that that was just how her mom do it (“i don’t have parents,” amy says later, “i never had parents”), he saw her refer to a pond without any ducks in it ever as a “duck pond,” he saw rory get erased from reality and saw how amy still felt that ABSENCE, that bone-deep intuition that something was wrong, he saw amy pond believing in stars in a world where no stars existed & the light of the universe came from an exploding tardis. even when amy was crying about not remembering her parents, “why don’t i remember them?” he shook his head because he knew that She Did. he noticed all of this, how simply a part of Her it all was. he knew that if anyone could bend and recreate time and space and the past and the future just through sheer willpower it would be amy pond
this is always part of her life, all of this compounding onto itself with every version of reality she lives to see rewritten again. in the wedding of river song the universe is reset again and the doctor finds amy and pleads her to remember that “in another version of reality, you and i were best friends. we, we travelled together, we had adventures” and amy just. keeps smiling at him. waits for him to notice the plethora of drawings she’s made about him, the crafted tardises,
she’s known about him the whole time. “time’s gone wrong,” she says, “some of us noticed.”
that’s just the essential truth about who she is. amy pond is a walking, breathing impossibility, a genius paradox, she holds every thread of reality that has ever existed within herself and she holds onto them all with the fiercest grip. rarely ever do i see people grasp that information enough or fully appreciate it, but i am always always thinking about it always always wishing it was explored more always always hoping that even if her powers ended up amounting to not much at all in the end of amy’s arc–well, that there’s another universe in which it does.
You’ve been asking a question. And it’s time someone told you you’ve been getting it wrong. His name, his name is the Doctor. All the name he needs. Everything you need to know about him. And if you love him, and you should, help him. Help him.
I love that Hannibal thinks he’s some kind of elevated serial killer or w/e but in reality he’s still a loser who keeps all his murder shit in his creepy badly lit basement with like hanging plastic sheets everywhere goddamnit Hannibal you’re a fuckin horror movie cliche
