Hey America, guess what the date is?
Pretty much everyone!
The Eleventh Doctor and River Song. It begins with a Doctor who approaches River with apprehension — unsure of what her presence in his life means and a River who is contemplating what her own future holds as she is sure she is coming to an end of her relationship with him. He smiles at her — the intriguing woman who comes in out of the blue and shakes up his life. The woman he’s excited to be just beginning a relationship with while entirely too aware of how it will end for them. So many years together now in her past, but when she looks at him she can’t help but smile at how young and adorable he is — knowing all of that is just beginning for him.
And then there is a Doctor and a River who comfortably bicker like the old married couple they are — long after he’s learned everything about her and what she means to him. In these times, they can forget about the tragedy, the spoilers, and the pain. They are coming off of a date that’s gone wildly off course — again. Smiling as they somehow manage to narrowly escape with their lives — again. Adventures. Misadventures. A little bickering. A little flirting. And a mad dash smiling and laughing back to the Tardis. This is one of the few glimpses into their normal life — the life River was remembering as the oh so young Doctor smiled at her and the life he only had the vaguest of ideas was ahead of him. And you know that neither of them would have it any other way.
River & The Doctor in ‘Last Night’ & ‘Rain Gods’
If Jack ‘Just the Other Night I was Sleeping Under a Bridge’ Dawson can understand that privilege doesn’t negate depression, then so can you, motherfuckers.
'Sometimes she wants to put a match to him, have done with him; finish with that endless, useless longing. At the very least, daily time and the entropy of her own body should take care of it—wear her threadbare, wear her out, erase that place in her brain. But no exorcism has been enough, nor has she tried very hard at it. Exorcism is not what she wants. She wants that terrified bliss, like falling out of an airplane by mistake. She wants his famished look.' || Margaret Atwood, The blind assassin

dont forget the part where you pretend you’re having a really sad moment in the rain
And the period shower where you stand and watch the blood flowing down the drain as if you just got back from a war or brawl.
As a girl I can confirm that all of this happens.
