Here’s to the people suffering from conditions that primarily affect women and people designated female at birth. There probably could have been a cure or more effective and humane treatment discovered 80 years ago, but sexism happened and people threw up their hands and said “what do
Keep fighting the good fight for awareness and recognition. Your struggle matters and is deserving of more than a brush-off of “that’s how life is.”
“Here we are, kid. That’s Strange’s house. Do you want me to come
in with you? Or do you prefer that I wait here?” Tony smiles at you
pointing to a big house on the other side of the road.
His smile breaks your heart. You let your eyes linger on his smiling
features for a couple of seconds.
“Tony” You sigh, finding it hard to say what you are about to
say. “I’m not coming back to the compound with you.”
Tony frowns, and open his mouth to rebate but you cut him off.
“Tony, I can’t stay here. Not like this. I would like to be the
person you are used to call ‘kid’. Damn, I would give anything for being her,
for being me.” Tears gather in your eyes. “But I have given myself up
to fight Thanos, and now I can’t remember who I was. I can’t walk this Earth
only like the Seer. I’m sorry, it’s too painful. I can’t.”

…so do you want me to tell you a story? The Brothers Grimm, lovely fellas. They’re on my darts team. According to them, there’s this emperor and he asks this shepherd’s boy, “How many seconds in eternity?”
The Doctor spent 24 years with River. He loves her and no one can tell me otherwise. He stayed by her side. For him she came here after Manhattan, he knows the Doctor she’ll meet in the Library doesn’t recognise her. He didn’t want the last memory she has of a Doctor that knows her to be of Manhattan, or the last memory she has of ‘her’ Doctor to be of one she doesn’t recognise. So he stayed back. The Doctor stayed still with her for 24 years so that she gets to know this him as much as she’s familiar with Eleven.
And after death, she hung on, as an echo to get a final goodbye from the Doctor she has spent more than a 100 years with. She told him 'Till the Next Time Doctor’ in Name Of The Doctor because she knew he had a next time with her. One that stretches over 24 years and he said 'See You Around Professor Song’ instead of a goodbye because he never gives up hope of meeting her again.
If anyone dares tell me that River doesn’t love The Doctor or that The Doctor doesn’t love River, please feel free to unfollow me because that is one fucking amazing love story. It’s adventurous, beautiful and absolutely heartbreaking. It’ll make you cry, it’s meant for legends.
The most beautiful love story ever written. One that doesn’t need a They Lived Happily Ever After, just They Lived Happily because they did. They finally were linear and spent years together being husband and wife.
