It’s always really lovely when I go through “River Song” tags and find someone just starting to adore her character. It’s even better when they ship Eleven/River, but for some strange reasons, I just absolutely adore the people that multiship Doctor/River and Rose/Doctor. I mean, to me, multishippers oftentimes have this grasp on the show that I think staunch OTP’ers don’t acknowledge. (Not everyone, but a significant amount.)
I am and will forever be a River/Doctor fan. But even I can acknowledge that Rose had good influences and a special place in the Doctor’s story. To deny that, or vice-versa (where Rose/Doctor fans deny River’s special spot in the Doctor’s life) just seems ludicrous to me and speaks of a person who is rather close-minded. Especially if they twist canon to suit their own views until it’s hardly recognizable. You don’t have to ship it. (I mean, I kinda ship Nine/Rose, but Ten/Rose is not my cuppa.) It’s just an acknowledgement of the story and canon, and the idea that this show is alllll about change and progressions. The Doctor loving one is NOT a barrier to the Doctor going on to love another.
Yes. THIS. I ship both Doctor/River and Doctor/Rose (though lean more toward Nine/Rose these days) and can’t understand fans who don’t at least respect at least both pairings, even if you don’t ship them. I personally love writing River and Rose in the same stories.
I just want to hold him and discuss Library fix-its with him and then help him save river.
We just need to send all the Library fix-its to Moff and demand that he choose one.
LMAO I can just see this. A couple dozen, sharply-dressed fangirls with thick binders seated around a big conference table, each giving a speil about a potential Library Fix-It, and Moffat being unable to leave until he chooses (at least) one and makes it happen.
