Spending my night ruining the free world.
The most interesting thing here stems from the fact that River doesn’t know Donna or have any personal vested interest in her and yet she looks at her with such emotion. Donna doesn’t die traveling with The Doctor as the audience suspects in this moment. She forgets.
River has seen a lot of horrible things and isn’t one to be easily moved, but you can see how just the mention of Donna’s name completely affects her. The look on her face reflects the pain of what The Doctor told her about Donna. We are seeing a reflection of how much and how deeply what happened to Donna affected The Doctor long after she was gone.
#But this also says a lot about River#death doesn’t scare her#But what’s the worst thing she can imagine?#What’s the horror that she lived with the silence?#forgetting#forgetting who she is#Not having a choice#and that’s what happened to both of them#No wonder River feels for Donna so#beyond the doctor and the pain it caused him#River knows what it is to be missing a piece of your life#and memories (via goddessdel)
#YES this EXACTLY#river’s biggest motivation for her most dramatic gestures —#ripping time and space apart#shooting the TARDIS and toying with the Doctor in LKH#letting Amy go to the Angel —#is CHOICE when you boil it down#she needs to make her own decisions NEEDS to control her own life after lifetimes of being manipulated#often without her knowledge#which is part of why people saying her life revolves around the doctor is so baffling for me because YES#she does a lot for him but everything she does for him is very much her call — he can’t manipulate river and doesn’t really try#the doctor is representitive of the day River was able to save her parents and the Doctor#the day she dis-aligned herself with the Silence and became River Song and began to own her own life for the first time#in saving him she VERY MUCH saved herself and so everytime she sacrifices something for him there’s a lingering note of autonomy anyway#so donna is like River’s worst nightmare — Donna’s fate is the anti-River#Donna’s fate is finally choosing her own life and then having her personal control and power ripped#away from her by the Doctor#(this is why I’m SO enamored of the semi-pervasive headcanon that River somehow#gives Donna her memories back — River Song queen of the universe champion of free will#of course that’s what she’d do) (via riversonglife)

A song of ice and fire + quotes
“She was Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, Khaleesi and queen, Mother of Dragons, slayer of warlocks, breaker of chains, and there was no one in the world that she could trust.”
Someone asked us recently how to be a proper hockey fan during the NHL playoffs and they start tomorrow! Which makes this extremely important.
”Your Grace, if you are dead —”
"— you will avenge my death, and seat my daughter on the Iron Throne. Or die in the attempt."
AU Idea: Hans is Anna’s twin.
//I saw this nifty au with Kristoff as Elsa’s brother, and I thought, well, what if Hans and Anna were twins, Elsa’s little brother and sister?
In this AU, Hans knows about Elsa’s powers, because his memories weren’t altered when Anna’s head was struck with ice. Because of this, Elsa still talks to Hans after she shuts everyone else out, and their parents trust him to look after her when they go away.
Anna, meanwhile, takes Elsa’s silence very personally, because she doesn’t understand why Elsa would only talk to Hans. Anna grows up very close to her twin brother, and clings to him a lot. He’s literally her only friend, and Elsa envies their relationship.
Hans, though… He doesn’t show it, but he really hates keeping Elsa’s secret, and constantly lying to Anna about it. He may even see Elsa as something of a burden, since he has to take care of her all the time.
When Elsa strikes Anna in the heart with ice, Hans finally snaps. He locks Elsa in the secret prison their father built, and decides to take the throne for himself. Maybe the power of love finally brings the three siblings together, or maybe it ends tragically for all of them…
