the two rivers


the wedding of river song // the husbands of river song

Six: Today has the makings of a lovely day!

River: Really?

Six: Mm, we could, you know, go for a walk along the beach later…

River: We could…

Six: And I spy a little store selling ices at the end of the pier!

River: Oh yes!

Six: We could, um, dream… a little…


I’m not okay with how adorable these two were in The Diary of River Song, not in the slightest. What did I do to deserve a scene where Six and River have tea together and he bashfully proposes a date inside her dreams? What did I do to deserve any of the Six/River scenes? (I know they had to save the world ‘n all… I kinda wish they had been able to dream together I’m so schmaltzy…)

  • Sebastian in ch62: The “price to cross the river" has already been paid.
  • Western fandom: He's referring to river Styx (Greek mythology).
  • Japanese fandom: He's referring to river Sanzu (Japanese folklore).

the winter soldier: bucky jumps after steve

civil war: steve jumps after bucky

infinity wars: they both sort of mutually tumble downwards and sam saves both of them because he can fly jesus christ why do those two keep falling into rivers from great heights they have a totally platonic acquaintance with wings why is this a regular feature in their lives

okay but imagine that Hak gets sparkles in his eyes whenever a chance to go flying with Jae-ha pops up and Jae-ha can’t even say no to him because Hak is way too cute when he’s actually excited about something


“It’s the same night!”

‘’The people who knew him, in whatever context, agreed on one thing, even if they fumbled for the vocabualry to describe it - River had a special quality, they said. Some called it a spark, some called it a light, some called it a soul.

He was the kind of guy, said one friend, ‘’that if you walked outside and it was snowing, you knew the first thing on his mind was making a snowball.’’ 

River loved to embrace his friends in massive bear hugs, sometimes surprising them by lunging at them from behind. But if somebody hugged him, he’d quickly squirm away. He wanted any embraces to be on his terms. 

Dermot Mulroney, who acted in two movies with River, thought that River’s lazy eye expressed a fundamental dichotomy in his spirit. He said, ‘’His eyes made him the focus of energy in every scene, the centrifugal force so strong you didn’t even try to duel him for control. The off-center eye read as madness, and the other read pure sanity. In a close-up, from one side he was the guy next door, and from the other he was absolutely insane.’’
