Characters/Pairings: River Song, Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams
Recced because: River is a fascinating character, and this fic really captures her spirit and her life. It's whirlwind and brilliant and glorious, just like River herself.
She feels like star dust, able to dance untamed from one corner of the universe to another, time racing under her skin, its siren song glowing with possibilities, with unexplored roads. She dreams wildly, soars out into the universe, and lands in a university, brimming with confidence and questions. The Doctor showed her the shadow of her future self, a woman he’d love. She wonders if she’d like that, to be loved by him.
She spends a lot of her time in the university’s library, sometimes searching for stories about him, sometimes for stories about herself. She doesn’t look for facts: she knows how easy it is to get those wrong.
