Daily Prompt: New Skin

“New Skin.”

My initial plan was to blog everyday this year, but I have fallen off a bit as you can see. No worries, however we’ll just power through. This Writing prompt is entitled New Skin and asks a really interesting question. The question, being “If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?” This is a brilliant question. Am I stalling with word, you may ask. And plainly put “Yes I am”. Let’s begin.

If I could be anybody by choice this year. I definitely wouldn’t pick me. At first glance, I thought the Doctor’s companion. I mean who want to be saved by a Madman with a box? Free to travel anywhere in time and space with a two hearted alien who spends his lives helping others. Most specifically, I would be River Song, beginning to end. River is amazing. She is the only companion who in some ways knows more than the Doctor. Her storyline alone sets her apart and she marries The Doctor. What more could you ask for in life? River is lively. She is fun and mysterious and possibly my favorite companion to date. Which  explains why I would wanna be he. There is so much depth to her and let us not forget about her “Spoilers”.

What’s so intriguing about her is that she keeps meeting the Doctor in the wrong order. For example her last time seeing him was his first time seeing her. Its really hard to explain to anyone who isn’t a whovian. But it is perplexing and amazing and just phenomenally written. She is everything I would wanna be if I could pick the me that I wanna be.
