She turns at the sound of his voice - a sound she’d thought she’d never hear again, but suddenly, here he is, looking genuinely confused as he waves at her, a frown in place. Her hearts speed up and she runs - runs toward him, her arms outstretched, her laughter ringing through the air - a sound not uttered by her in this place for years. “Doctor!”
"River, what’s happening? It was Christmas - we were celebrating, you were so young. We took Clara to the Market on Andorian V-"
"Oh my love, do you not remember what happened there?" Her voice is soft and she’s still holding him tightly as he frowns.
"There were Sycorax - oh - oh. I died, didn’t I? What am I doing here?”
"You changed yes, but you didn’t die. Just the next face. And oh - oh you said you had to drop off some files, wouldn’t let Clara or I see - you must have been doing this, oh my love, you brilliant, brilliant man,” she touches his face softly, her smile wide and aching as tears filled her eyes. “You did this - you gave me you.”
"Well I am rather brilliant you know,” he sniffs as he grins down at her. “So both of us? Here? Forever?”
"Too domestic for you then?" she teases and he shakes his head fervently in denial.
"No, just right. Only…" he trails off, looking at her worriedly. “Him - me, I mean. He gets to go on alone, while I get to be in here with you - hardly seems fair, does it?" His fingers brush through her hair as she grins at him wryly.
"Well, I happened to spend a bit of time with your twelfth face, sweetie. He won’t be alone, I promise." He kisses her then, like his joy cannot be contained for one second more, and she smiles against his lips. When he pulls back he eyes her suspiciously.
"I’m your favourite though right?" He looks at her as she beams back at him, laughter bubbling in her throat. The stupid man - of course it was this face - the one who’d married her, who’d loved her, always and completely. Not that that had changed from one regeneration to the next.
"Oh you daft man," she scolds and he smiles sheepishly, ducking his head and running a hand through his hair. He looks up at her, his face excited.
"River! Was I… ginger?"
She simply smooths a hand over his bowtie and smirks up at him.
what if reflections in mirrors are actually your doppelganger and every time you glance away they smile at you
this is probably the most accurate commercial on tv right now.
My life perfectly right here.
It’s the Eighth Month! Time to celebrate the Eighth Doctor!
Unfortunately for him, Eight’s the most neglected of all the Doctors. Why? Because a lot of people think he only has one movie.Oh how wrong that thought is.
Eight is the Doctor with simultaneously the shortest and longest runs of all the Doctor. How is that possible?
Let me teach you about the magical world of Eight.
australia is shortened to au because it’s an alternative universe where summer is winter and platypuses exist.
Everyone who see’s this on their dash watch it. You will not be dissapointed. I have said this before but I have LITERALLY never laughed so much my face is wet with teachers and my sides are hurting so bad but it was goddam worth it.
I AM IN SO MUCH PAIN I’M LAUGHING SO HARD
"wet with teachers"

I PRESSED PLAY, HOPING IT WAS THE VIDEO I THOUGHT IT WAS
I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED
THIS FUCKING VIDEO GOT ME OBSESSED WITH THEM IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THIS I HIGHLY ADVISE YOU TO
This is the first video I have EVER seen of Roosterteeth and I cannot express how happy I am because of it.
Sometimes Cabin Pressure makes me cry. Like a lot.
Like 10 minutes into the show some guy ran down the street screaming ‘MY POWER’S FAILED WHO’S THE NEXT DOCTOR?’ and like 4 different people shouted back out their windows inviting him in for a cuppa and to watch the show with them.
They got Karen from the same episode too… I don’t like that ten has already interacted with him UNLESS they plan to use this.
headcanon that 12 was just messing with 10 and Donna because he knew exactly who they were
I mean he stole the TARDIS
must have been walking down the street and like, oh that’s where I parked you
Then 10 shows up and he realised went ‘Oh’
I kind of admire how they made sure we’d fall in love with Steve Rogers before we fell in love with Captain America.
THE MOMENT WHEN SUDDENLY EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE.
And then there’s the moment when you connect the fact that New York’s nickname, especially in the 1930s, is “The Big Apple.”
You’re welcome, fandom.
