Warnings/Notes: for ragnarok_08. Written for the prompt the shadow cast by the future.... I hope you like it. I've discovered that this sort of internal character monologue/study is what I'm best at writing. (and again, apologies that this is a day late :3) happy holidays ♥
|The future shapes the past, and the past the future. If there’s one thing he’s learned over is many years, it’s that history repeats itself. And yes it evolves, changes, holds new discoveries and genuinely intrigues him; but as time goes on, he’s left with a sense of dull familiarity. |
He sees humanity make the same mistakes over and over again. Not that he's got a better track record. He wonders if either of them are ever going to learn. He wonders if maybe that’s the point. He sees Rose’s willingness to help everyone in Rory. He wonders if Rory’s going to be a lot like Wilf when he’s old and wrinkled. Oswin’s ingenuity reminds him of Martha’s determination and fierceness. River’s flirtatious nature always brings back whispers of ‘hello, my name is Jack Harkness’. Amy and Donna both have an amiable sense of spunk to go with their violently ginger hair.
He smiles to himself. Maybe a sense of familiarity isn’t the worst thing in the world. He knows the further he goes with them the more it will hurt. Maybe that’s the reason why he should.
