I’m a Time Lord, and I shouldn’t be afraid of the dark.
But I am.
I have been since the Library.
When I met her and I lost her. She trusted me.
And I let her down.
Because I didn’t trust her.
And so I lost her, before I ever knew her.
And from then on, every time I met her I had to lie to her, as she had had to lie to me, to use that word - spoilers. It’s become a curse.
She’s in there, somewhere, my lovely River Song. There in the hard drive at the core of the Library.
Could I go back? Back to the Library, with a Tessalecta or a ‘Ganger. I wonder if I could.
