Moffat’s Women - River Song

River Song is confident, mischievous and adventurous. She’s technologically savvy, a trained killer, an archaeologist with a genuine love for her subject and she’s turned flirting into an art form. Her story is told out of order, more often than not back-to-front, but keeping this in mind, the most stunning character development is revealed.

When we “first” meet her at the Library, she’s come a long way from the young, reckless, destructive person she was in the beginning. She’s become more independent, she’s grown to not to put her own needs above those of the universe, she’s learned to be caring and empathic and she’s gained a complete and complex image of the Doctor - the best man she’s ever known, with all his faults. And however much River loves him, he’s hardly all there is to her life. She has her own adventures… sometimes he’s lucky enough to be invited along.

River doesn’t always walk away undamaged, but you can be sure she’s landing on her feet, even if it means hiding just how hurt she is. And she’ll find a way to have fun, whether it’s pissing off Sontarans or investigating Weeping Angels in New York in the 1930s.



Oh, Anon- no, no! You’re thinking about it all- wrong


First off, stop comparing yourselves to ants. I mean, ants are magnificent creatures, who’ve lived for millennia with barely any necessity for evolving because their way of life is so efficient, don’t get me wrong— but you- you are not ants! You are human- beings! You are- people!

Alright. Look, say I have a pebble, and I’m standing by a pond, and I want to skip the pebble along the water. Pretend, in this scenario, that the pond represents the larger universe, and the pebble represent a single person - you, even, if you’d like. 

So I ready my skipping arm, twist my wrist a little, let loose! And look, there you go!— skipping along the surface of the universe three or four times before finally plopping down.

Pretend, for a moment, that that’s your life span. Birth to death. You think, “Oh, but I only hopped across it three times. A hop, skip, and a jump, Doctor! That’s not significant at all.” Except wait! What happened every time the pebble hit against the water? There was a bit of a ripple effect there, wasn’t there? Branching out away from the centre point of each skip in a circumference that keeps widening and widening, expanding over the surface of the pond.


That is your effect on the universe. You see the results of your immediate actions — the pebble skipping on the water — but you don’t always get to see the broadening effects. You are shaping the world around you. You have a much larger effect on the way time and space contort and form than you could ever realise.

Like the TARDIS, people are so much bigger on the inside. So much bigger than they ever could realise and most of the time ever do realise, and certainly as vast as, if not more vast than, the universe you live in. Blimey, you create entire universes inside yourselves, with your magnificent imaginations and your ability to dream of things so much larger than what your species was originally built for.

Don’t besmirch that. When I say I’ve never met anybody that wasn’t important before, I mean it. And I know for a fact I will never meet somebody unimportant in the rest of my life to come. It’s one of the only things I can absolutely say with complete surety.

Because you’re not ants — you’re giants. Standing tall. And you are, oh!


—You are magnificent.

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."
