River Song Appreciation Week | Day 1 - Favourite Trait
“The day is coming when I’m going to look into that man’s eyes. My doctor and he won’t have the faintest idea of who I am and I think it’s going to kill me”
One of my favourite traits of River has always been her strength. Emotional strength. Considering how much she’s been through, to be strong for the one you love even though it hurts like hell. That is one trait I really admire. Every time she meets him, he knows her less and less. The person you’ve been in love your whole life with, every day he keeps going farther and farther, it takes a lot of guts to be brave and strong at each of those encounters.
She smiles, she laughs, she fights by his side, everytime they meet. He looks at her with no idea of who she is to him, yet she stays strong and stays brave and tries to be there for him. Like she always is. She always thinks of him before herself, to the extent that even when she’s dying all she thinks is to assure him that everything’s gonna be fine, that he’ll see her again.
I guess that’s what I love the most about her.
