the Doctor had Amy as a companion for 300 years. longer than he knew Rose and Martha and Donna and possibly any other companion he’s ever had. she was the first person he saw after regenerating. he broke down sobbing when she left. something that’s only happened once before to my understanding. if River hadn’t thought to keep her eyes on the angel they would have gotten sent back in time too because. he. was. sobbing.

#I mean look at these moments between The Doctor and River, they have fought coalitions of Daleks, Cybermen, & Sontarans- have restarted the universe, broken time itself, and yet when confronted with each other’s love, with sentiment, they can’t stand it! River outdoes herself with the beacon to tell him how much he’s valued, and The Doctor gives up the essence of his life to show her how much she’s worth- and instead of being grateful they’re ashamed of one another. #Because they are exposed to the others sacrifice. #It must be a terrifying thing, a humiliating and embarrassing thing to find out that the greatest danger isn’t a Dalek or The Master, but their love for each other and how helpless and vulnerable that truly makes them.
