Murderess is a strong word to have attached to you. It has a smell to it, that word - musky and oppressive, like dead flowers in a vase. Sometimes at night I whisper it over to myself: Murderess, Murderess.
Murderess, murderess, he whispers to himself. It has an allure, a scent almost. Hothouse gardenias. Lurid, but also furtive. Murderess. He applies it to her throat like a brand.
“People fall out of the world sometimes. But they always leave traces. Little things we can’t quite account for. Faces in photographs, luggage, half eaten meals, rings. Nothing is ever forgotten, not completely. And if something can be remembered, it can come back.”
I wish you could have been there for the sun & the rain & the long, hard hills. For the sound of a thousand conversations scattered along the road. For the people laughing & crying & remembering at the end. But, mainly, I wish you could have been there.
-awkward cough- Okay, you’re talking to someone who knows every single one of Alex’s DW episodes by heart. And, actually, River died in the second episode she was in, there’s no point including the first. And she didn’t technically die, she was uploaded into a memory main frame which means her mind will live on eternally in a computer.
I’m assuming the second part of your “explanation” is pointing out the wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey relationship the two have which, I should point out in turn, that it’s incredibly obvious River and the Doctor have a worse love story than The Time Traveler’s Wife. So, no, I haven’t forgotten continuity, thanks.
MY post was directed more to the fact it hasn’t been confirmed this is Alex’s last episode. There is speculation, of course, and the gravestone, but we won’t actually know River is going to die until she asks the Doctor to see the Singing Towers. We already know she dies eventually, so showing the gravestone doesnt make sense go me especially since there was no body. And we know the Towers will actually happen (unless Moffat is an actual moron) because of the short special included in the season six (or five, one of the two) DVD pack that showed them leaving together. So, while it COULD be her last episode, we don’t know for sure. But, I can guarantee if it is (and this is what I was hinting with my post) I’ll be bawling my eyes out because the only television episode ever that can make me cry repeatedly is Forest of the Dead.
So, er, yeah, I guess thanks for your extremely not helpful message and do yourself a favor in the future…take a look at someone’s blog before, you know, making an idiot out of yourself. :)

He’s looking at the little boy like he’s just as intrigued, yet confused as the boy is at the lion.
“Tell me your name young boy.”
Things that are creepy:
- Persistence after someone has said NO or STOP, or has made it clear they are not interested in your advances
- Invalidating someone’s “no”
- Only stopping your advances when somebody informs you they are taken (you are telling this person their “no” alone is not enough, which means you do not respect them)
- Asking “why” when somebody rejects your advances
- Asking “why not” when somebody refuses to give you their phone number
