“Sorrow compressed my heart, and I felt I would die, and then … Well, then I woke up.”
How many times do you think little Amelia Pond genuinely thought she was crazy? That she had created this entirely fictional person with a crack in her wall that spoke. Little Amelia Pond, they must have thought, broken with no parents. She must be disturbed. If people keep telling you that, you start to believe it, though. She didn’t have any reason not to. But he was real. She knew he was. Everyone knew in Eleventh Hour about her raggedy doctor and odd little Amelia Pond— except she wasn’t Amelia anymore. She was Amy. Had been for… how long?
Six months. ‘Why did you say six months?’
Is it at all possible that was the moment she broke, those six months ago. Did Amelia Pond, thinking herself mad, try to stop being Amelia Pond? Did she try to kill herself? Did she just decide to stop being a person?
Something happened six months before Eleventh Hour. Something happened that turned her from Amelia into Amy Pond.
#THIS HURTS IN UNEXPECTED WAYS #BECAUSE IN THE FIRST GIF SHE’S SAYING GOODBYE TO HER NORMAL BORING LIFE AND TRADING IT FOR ALL OF TIME AND SPACE #AND IN THE SECOND ONE SHE’S DOING THE EXACT OPPOSITE #SHE’S GIVING UP ALL OF THE ADVENTURES SHE MIGHT HAVE JUST TO LIVE A CALM MARRIED LIFE WITH RORY #and i bet you anything that the young amy pond in the first gif would have never expected herself to make such a decision #this is what you call character development ladies and gentlemen
Reblogging for the commentary.
Sniffle. Sniffle. For the commentary just as much as for the gifs…OH THE FEELS!
There’s someone missing. Someone important, someone so, so important. Sorry everyone, but when I was a kid, I had an imaginary friend, the Raggedy Doctor, my Raggedy Doctor. But he wasn’t imaginary, he was real. I remember you! I remember! I brought the others back; I can bring you home too! Raggedy man, I remember you! And you are late for my wedding!
Hello there, Karen. I would very much like to be you now. I hope this is okay.
