#He doesn’t move his hands away from her face #he’s literally clinging to her #as if she’d fade the instant he’d let go #so he doesn’t - only moves his face away slowly - taking in every second that he’s missed before #he had been so young - so foolish #but now he knows #and he hesitates to open his eyes right away - because dreams only come true when one’s eyes are closed #and reality had never been good to him #so he keeps them shut far longer than she does #and when he finally opens them - a smile forms on his face #because she was really there #as really there as she had always been to him #his professor #her eyes just as blue as they were the day he’d met her
This isn’t a ghost story. It’s a love story. — The little moments in season 7 leading to his goodbye to River.
“We are the ever-living ghost of what once was.”
#when i read this quote my first reaction was to attribute it to river #because she’s always expressed her love for him so straighforwardly #but thinking about it now - it fits the doctor so much more #because so many people have loved him - so many people have adored and faught for him #and he has loved many more #but no one has ever loved river except for him #and no one ever could the way he does #he understands her torment and her bliss - he understands the infinite infinity that she travels through #and her entire mess gets to be his alone #only his #and no one will ever have her except for him #and no one will ever love her more
I only want to move when you move
I want to breathe in when you breathe out
then I want to fade into you
