026  and i'm just a northern girl from where nothing really happens

what if it had been completely different?  what if river song wasn't melody pond, what if she wasn't raised as the perfect weapon to kill the doctor?  what if she was just a girl from yorkshire, with an ordinary childhood and an even more ordinary time at university? what if she read all the right books and snogged all the wrong men and kept her blonde hair back with bobby pins she was always losing and cried over her thesis, like every other nineteen year old in england, britain, europe, the world?  and what if a magic man dropped out of the sky and parked his bright blue box at her feet (nearly scuffing those heels she saved up for, and still can't walk properly in).  what if he smiled at her, with his hair all in his eyes and his bowtie crooked, what if he asked "miss river song, how's that archeology degree going?"  what if she very unceremoniously kicked him in the shins and demanded he tell her how he knew her name, what if she flounced away, unimpressed?  what if he was there to pick up her books when she dropped them in the hall, what if she was more than a little intrigued by the way he spoke about everything, and the way his arms flailed when he got excited (what if she discovered he was always, always excited, within a few minutes of speaking to him?)?  what if this magic man (thedoctor) showed river song time and space, what if he took her to raxicoricofalipatorious, versailles under the sun king, the hanging gardens of babylon?  and what if, just what if, they fell in love?

the bones inside my shins are crumblingCollapse )
