What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and a badge? But they tended to use the term [civilian] these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen. It was a dangerous habit: once policemen stopped being civilians, the only other thing they could be was soldiers."Snuff" by Terry Pratchett (via knerdy)
Look at you pair. It’s always you and her isn’t it? Long after the rest of us have gone. A boy and his box off to see the universe.
Hi, I'm Rory, I'm a male character. I'm a kind compassionate person, doing a job that involves looking after people. I kinda die a lot. Not much is known about my family or childhood, but I'm a good person, my job is a big part of my life, I made a huge sacrifice for the Doctor and I'm badass when I need to be.
You're amazing, you're perfect, a BAMF!

What an undeveloped, boring Mary Sue.
This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”
The photo comes from protests happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting poverty and corruption in Bulgaria’s Socialist-backed government, chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University and clashing with police outside of parliament.

Fact: Unlike the gay agenda™, the bisexual agenda contains a 15 minute break for snacks between sessions.
Fact: The asexual agenda is entirely made of snacks, with a 15 minute break for all out anarchy
Fact: The pansexuals, with their extreme love for kitchen ware, make all the snacks.
that’s because river is young. she is a baby compared to the doctor. the doctor knows what regeneration means, it means that you’re loosing a part of yourself and you’ll never get it back. it also means that the people who used to know you won’t recognize you if you walk past them in the street. the doctor has experienced regeneration so many times, i think he’s pretty tired of it. the best proof is the regeneration of ten; you can see in his eyes, when he believes that he’s going to die for wilfried, that he wishes it would truly be the end. because at some point, it’s best to die for good than to die a bit.
so yeah, river is fucking glamorous during this regeneration. but that’s because she’s a baby whose life is just getting started, while the doctor’s an old man who would rather die than to lose a part of himself again.
what that nessasary. was it.
this post was funny but then it wasnt
Well someone’s a cradle robber….
I really don’t like it when people hold up Ten’s attitude towards regeneration as an example of what regeneration is. He is not “losing” a bit of himself, he is gaining life. And gaining a new perspective. The Doctor doesn’t stick around any one place long enough for him to worry about people passing him on the street, and regeneration is the opposite of dying. When the Doctor is in danger of dying; he stops, and is born again. Same man, new flavour.
River’s so free and glamorous about it because she doesn’t have any idea of the dangers inherent in changing one’s whole being yet(Valeyard), and obviously has a knack for regenerating that the Doctor clearly lacks.
Also worth noting - River has regenerated at least twice at this point. Even in terms of experience, you should be comparing her attitudes to the third or fourth doctor, who was also very much “eugh I’m dying.” River’s carefree attitude towards regeneration probably has an awful lot to do with the fact that she’s insane. (at this point in the story at least).
Also noteworthy is the fact that regeneration is a normal part of the Doctor’s life cycle, there’s a set limit, and each time is one time less that’s left. But River is human. Regenerating at all is a miracle and a triumph, having beaten death. It’s not normal or natural for her or the people she’s been around all her life. So it probably has a lot more of the feeling of This Awesome Thing I Can Do, and less of the Welp Dying Again I Guess.
And he’s more “Dying? Oh I hate doing that” than “Noooo! I must not die!!!”.
Well… I do think there’s a lot of “noooooo! I must not die!!!!!!” going on, but that’s because he’s usually got something far more important to do. CAN’T DIE NOW! MUST GET BATS MILK! and so on.
In that case I mean his attitude to dying is more “Not now, I’m busy!”
