Day 4 - Favourite Relationship: River & the Doctor
↳ sweet·ie: (noun) [Informal]Sweetheart : A person you love very much—used to address someone you love. An adoring pet name to call your lover.
The Doctor could have said anything definitive in order to clear up the confusion between them—but he didn’t. Instead, he watched in horror as she poured her heart out to a robot, and a criminal waiter, claiming that he never loved her. That’s when it came to him. The perfect words to say. Not just to convince her of who he was, but of who she was to him. It was a genuine epiphany. So the Doctor, in the TARDIS, the 2,000+ year-old runaway Timelord, clearly and unabashedly addresses her with the two words that have always been a testament of her love, and now, his.
“Can you hear the silence? Can you see the dark? Can you fix the broken? Can you feel… can you feel my heart? Can you help the hopeless? Well, I’m begging on my knees, Can you save my bastard soul? Will you wait for me?” Sleepwalkingby Bring Me The Horizon
"I never intended or expected that this character would be adopted by so many people. And, in a way, the thing that I find actually incredibly moving is how there are so many people who come up and want to share their stories with me of how tough their lives have been or how tough their lives are, and the struggles that they’re going through and the in some way the show, Doctor Who, and the character of River Song have somehow helped them through the extremely tough times they’re going though. That’s something that I never, ever expected to sort of happen. I never expected that River would be a sort of character who would provide the strength to people in their sort of darkest moments.
“But there’s one thing that I do say to people if they actually come and share their stories with me, and they sort of want to say ‘You have helped me survive, you’re the one,’ and I have to give it back to anybody who is going through struggles and has that feeling. The truth is that it’s not me, it’s you. You might watch the show. The show might really help you through, but the choice to continue pushing through, and the choice to find that bit of strength to keep on going hasn’t come from me, that’s come from you. And you must own that and know it.”

I know this doesn’t rhyme
I don’t care, for you everything’s okay
But hey, at least I’m giving it a try
I love that time when we met, that wonderful day…
Meeting you was a matter of fate
I still can’t believe we’re together!
Maybe it was the destiny, I don’t care
All that matters is that we’re there for each other
My life without you would be sad
I don’t even want to think about it
You’re the best girl, I can just be glad
I love you for everything, every single bit
Your bright smile always make my days better
For this special day I thought a gift could be a kiss
But I tried to give you something, a poem or a letter…
Since distance doesn’t help, I hope you liked this
I always fall in love with you
You make this guy so joyful
Happy, loved and thankful…
I can just say, I love you
I seem to be able to fly her. She taught me how. The Doctor said I’m the child of the Tardis. How ?
River Song (Melody Pond) Let’s Kill Hitler
Yes I have binge watching all River song Episodes again because I want to.
I think more than anything else, I’m really excited to see River Song back on the TARDIS for the Christmas Special. TARDIS will be reunited with her child.
The TARDIS, her thief and her child on an adventure again.
Only in Doctor Who fandom would you understand why that makes one quite sentimental.
