#I mean look at these moments between The Doctor and River, they have fought coalitions of Daleks, Cybermen, & Sontarans- have restarted the universe, broken time itself, and yet when confronted with each other’s love, they can’t stand it. River outdoes herself with the beacon to tell him how much he’s valued, and The Doctor gives up the essence of his life to show her how much she’s worth- and instead of being grateful they’re ashamed of one another. #Because they are confronted with the other’s sacrifice. #It must be a terrifying thing, a humiliating and embarrassing thing to find out that the greatest danger isn’t a Dalek or The Master, but their love for each other and how helpless and vulnerable that truly makes them.
