Wonderful to have hope, isn't it?
riverborntorun: (Smarter Than You)

I think it's wonderful that you actually get to have some hope this time, rather than bring it to other people.
riverborntorun: (Awe)

You mean... Gallifrey? [Her voice is soft, eyes lighting up.]

I... [Way to go, Doctor. You've rendered her temporarily speechless.]

..I've always wondered about it.

[Those words wash over her and settle deep in her heart. She's visibly, emotionally moved by her husband's words. She accepted her life as it is a long time ago, but the truth is, she's never properly fit in anywhere. Conceived on a time machine, born on an asteroid in the wrong century, and then there are those days when she runs with the Doctor but she has to keep mum on things that haven't happened for im yet. She's had the luxury of three different faces due to regeneration, she was a natural TARDIS pilot, and she understood extremely complex temporal physics.

But was it enough? Was she enough of a Time Lord? She'd always wondered what Gallifrey would view her as. But then she'd away those thoughts, taking comfort in the fact that the only one whose eyes she cared about were The Doctor's.]


How beautiful? Tell me.
riverborntorun: (Good night/Maternal)

[She's absolutely inclined, taking her favorite position with him - by his side. Whoawut no innuendo? River gently places her hand on his knee, her eyes proof that she's hanging on his every word. She knows whatever picture she puts together in her head will never compare to the memories he's recalling, but he is right - it sounds beautiful.]

Sun in the south... And was it just the one sun?

[There had only been so much she'd been able to dredge up on Time Lords and Gallifrey, most of it incomplete or in the Restricted section. Not that a silly little sign stopped her from researching - not a snowball's chance in hell of that! But facts and figures, climate estimations, those didn't compare to first-hand experience gloriously retold.

She nodded. That certainly matched up with what her research told her.]
And what were the cities like? Did you live in one or were you more in the country?
riverborntorun: (Blow kiss)

[personal profile] riverborntorun 2013-11-26 10:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[She smiles, giving him aplayful nudge.] I can't even imagine you living in any sort of house that stands still!

Parents kicked you out when you wouldn't get a job.

[She's teasing back, keeping the conversation light and merry. But somehow she knows....there's subtext here.]
riverborntorun: (Thoughtful)

[personal profile] riverborntorun 2013-11-27 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
[River leans her head against his shoulder. She poses her next question carefully; it means so much to her that he's spending this time with her, opening up about his past like this. She doesn't want to rock the boat with her avid curiosity.] You don't mention your family much...is it all right to ask about them?
riverborntorun: (Thoughtful)

IT'S THE BEST TIME

[personal profile] riverborntorun 2013-11-27 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
[She's quiet at first, lips pressed together in thought. She wants to know everything, but that's much too ambitious for this topic.] Well... what they were like, I suppose. Your mother, your father...what was the household like.
riverborntorun: (Good night/Maternal)

[personal profile] riverborntorun 2013-11-28 11:07 pm (UTC)(link)
[She waits patiently as he finds the words. She can't imagine what they looked like - and really, with Time Lords, how could you? - but they sound like fascinating people. Which made sense, considering their progeny.

There's a wry laugh on her part as she looks downward. River Song certainly doesn't blush, but this is close.]


Now I think you're buttering me up.

[She raises her head after a moment, squeezinghis hand.] But it is a rather happy thought.

[She smiles that soft, strainining-against-the-possibility-of-crying smile. It's tender moments like this that make her realize how truly blessed she is. She leans in to plant a kiss to his cheek.]

The way you talk about them, I think it would've been mutual.

...Though I might've fought with your father over family dinner once or twice. [She smiles teasingly.]

That non-interference rot. That some healthy rebellion builds character. That sort of thing.

[She chuckles and shakes her head.] I don't think any parent ever really gets used to that. Mine never did. Always scolded me during our school days.

...School! What's Gallifreyan school like?
