Funny thing is, this means you’ve always known how I was going to die. All the time we’ve been together you knew I was coming here. The last time I saw you - the real you, the future you, I mean - you turned up on my doorstep with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Derillium. To see the Singing Towers. Oh, what a night that was. The towers sang, and you cried. You wouldn’t tell me why but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the Library. You even gave me your screwdriver. That should have been a clue. There’s nothing you can do.

#I can imagine young - still at the university - river reading about the singing towers for the first time #and she’d want to go there #so one time when doctor picks her up from her cell and asks her where she wants to go #she says ‘singing towers of derilium’ #and he tenses for a second because he never wants to hear these words coming from her mouth #and then he promises to take her there one day - night - but not tonight #no. not tonight #and he takes her to an amazing and wonderful place to make her forget about the towers #she brings up this subject a few more times but doctor always says ‘some other time’ #but he hopes that this time will never come #and one night when he vistis his ponds #amy tells him that river decided to take part in this expedition to a planet made from books #a planet made of books! can you imagine it doctor? #and he knows that it is time #he puts on his new suit #he shows up at her doorstep #and he says that he’s here to take her to see the singing towers #and she’s happy because she believes that he waited so long to make it perfect #the towers sing and he cries
