"There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to see and fight pirates. She’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived. And save a whale in outer space. Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends." ~Amy's letter to the Doctor
So I made myself cry...again. But the Doctor needed to be happy, even for a moment, even just a sketch. I could give him that much. I owe him a great deal more.
I will admit that I was jaded when my doctor regenerated and became Tennent, whom then took it upon himself to make us laugh and love again. Sure, he hurt us too, but we forgave him. Now Smith is the Doctor, and he has had some amazing adventures, but our hearts break for him with each passing adventure. Go chase that happy, Doctor! Chase it down and beat it into submission and make it your own. *ahem* Sorry... I got carried away a bit there. Anywhoooo.... what I really wanted to say was "Thank you". He truly does look happy there. No sadness, just happy. As it should be. Thank you.
