After River opened the doors - to the amazement of the Doctor - she commented to him, “Now pull yourself together - you’re embarrassing me.”
River then slapped the Doctor across the face, but her hand just passed through him, and she was left ruminating, “Well that’s not as much fun as it used to be.”
As she strode off, the Doctor put his hand to his cheek.

#THE DOTOR PUT HIS HAND TO HIS CHEEK#because River is right#it’s not as much fun as it used to be#the experience is nothing more but a shadow#an echo of their memories from before#and like a slap#the constant reminder of her death is a sharp pain that often comes unexpectedly#yet it does not lessen the heartache he experiences#even the painful memories are missed#even the slap#UGH GOODBYE (via likeabookonashelf)

My work for the upcoming Doctor Who tribute show at Meltdown Comics! It’s here in LA on November 1st, and loads of talented artists have come out of the woodwork to share our love for the good Doctor.
With something like Doctor Who, there’s so much rich, amazing material to work from. Obviously you have the companions, and the Doctors, and the worlds and a vibrant rogues gallery, but i’ve always really loved River Song, both her character and her unique relationship with the doctor. Sorting through her timeline requires a bit of a roadmap, but fortunately the internet was ahead of me on that one. Her story is powerful and beautiful and tragic AND she’s got big awesome curly hair, what’s not to love?
