Yeah, clearly I should know better than do a 'post daily stuff' meme. Or sign up for things with good intentions which I poorly follow through on. *sigh* (must think of something for today that is not linking my Sam/Martouf picspam).

But instead I wrote a lot of my K/S Ficathon fic, even though it isn't due for a month. yes, obvious fic will be obvious. I fail at anon. And prioritizing. But I EXCEL at striking while the iron is hot. And when the plot bunnies bite. And when the shiny is shiny.

Speaking of Shiny --

KAREN GILLAN FOR ALL THE AWARDS.



Oh sure, yeah, go rip out my heart. AMYYYYYYYYYYYYY! And RORRYYYYYYY. But mostly Amy.

Left alone for 36 years. ow ow ow. And sure she got even more badasser, but she aslo turned hard and jaded and and *sniff*

and she had a robot that she put Rory's face on, sort of. (kind of like the beach ball in 'Cast Away'.) but really for being alone, or mostly alone except for the computer interface, she was hardened but not crazy.

And while she was angry at the doctor, she never let her bitterness curdle into hate against Rory, just the Doctor. She didn't know what to do with him exactly when he showed up again.

OMG and Rory with the "I don't mind that you got old, I mind that I missed growing old with you." excuse me, while I go cry buckets.

Then having to choose, because the Doctor is too much of a frakking COWARD. (which, yeah, he was. He lied and he knew it would have to go down like that, but he shoved it off on Rory instead of just GOING because he couldn't bear it. BOOOOO.) and yet, y'know, kinda awesome because in a twisted dickish way it's more human to be that sort of selfish. Makes him more relateable when he fucks up, I think, than when he does everything perfectly. (and one last comment about the Doctor -- we have yet another confirmation through HIS LIES that Very Bad Things happen with a timestream cross. yes, Moffat, WE KNOW SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN THERE IN RELATION TO LAKE SILENCIO. OY WITH THE ANVILS ALREADY).

But really this wasn't about Eleven at all, only about the POOOOONNNNDDDDSSSSS!

and their precious faces and hands on glass saying goodbye (yes, I AM A SUCKER FOR THAT SINCE FRAKKING STAR TREK II, OKAY?)

POOR BBs.

But outstanding episode.

SHE WAS INCREDIBLE. Karen Gillan, that is.

And-"I don't mind that you got old, I mind that I missed growing old with you." <-- that is TOTALLY the line that made me <3 Rory, and also ok with the whole resolution (well, I mean, not ok, as, well, Eleven is a jerkface, BUT BUT, that line really resonated with me as did older!Amy's telling him she was going to give them the years back)

SUSPICIOUS CAT IS SUSPICIOUS that we will get the mirror of this line with Eleven re: Melody. That he will do something to give them the years back with baby Melody - I don't know HOW, whether saving Melody requires re-writing time or he's just going to rescue the baby somehow. But I suspect that they'll leave the show and baby Melody will be with them. (what this does to River, I don't know, but ... but... I want the Ponds to get their baby back even when I want River to keep on existing. And I don't know if this is impossible, like this episode suggests, or River is already enough of an anomaly that she is her own paradox and will continue even if another version of her is growing up normally in the UK. Or maybe baby!Melody will exist and then the Doctor can get River out of the LIbrary and that's how we can avoid paradox because it'll be essentially a flesh!copy of River? ) . I DO NOT KNOW.

IN SUM. TEAM TARDIS FOREVER. EXCEPT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AND ALL OUR HEARTS WILL BREAK NO MATTER WHAT. *cries*

THAT IS MY WORRY, TOO.

Because the last two episodes have been half-meta about BABIES WHO ARE NOT HUMAN AND CHANGING TIME STREAMS FOR YOUNGER, LESS CYNICAL VERSIONS. MOFF, WHY ARE YOU SUCH A TROLL

Karen was incredible - all those little moves that made her seem old and at the same time still so completely Amy. And this was the Amy I fell in love for - brave and kick-ass, smart and self-sufficient. She had sword and she made a sonic screwdriver and sh

I think Doctor sent Rory to get her, not because he was afraid of getting sick, but because he knew she would forgive Rory. She would love him still. It was the same weapon Amy used on herself.

Of course he loved her too no matter what. And I loved how angry he was with the Doctor (both times he was completely right) Rory ♥

Great episode.

that's a good point I hadn't considered about the Doctor sending Rory - makes sense. He knew that above all people she'd listen to Rory and she would be furious/embittered with him (the Doctor).

Rory and Amy are THE BEST.

"I don't mind that you got old, I mind that I missed growing old with you."
