Amy’s choices   Leave a comment

‘Together or Not at All’ begins to play on my Spotify playlist, and I am suddenly struck by Amy’s willingness to kill herself for Rory. In ‘Amy’s Choice’ she drives a bus into a house to end the dream in which he has died. In ‘Angels Take Manhattan’ she jumps off a building, and later steps into a Weeping Angel’s embrace, to be with him, or at least not be without him.

This same woman drops him like a hot Dalek when she finds she can’t have the children he wants, and spends their entire relationship neglecting him, forgetting him, flirting with other men, and having mixed feelings.

Amy Pond may be somewhat disturbed.
