River met the first ten incarnations that went by "the Doctor", but erased his memories of her with mnemosine recall-wipe vapour to avoid corrupting his timeline. Her opinions on the Doctors were very varied:
  • First Doctor- She considered this incarnation to be boring, because he spent his time hanging out with teachers.
  • Second Doctor- Apparently the incarnation that she held the most animosity toward, after he offered her 'this cool place on Telos'. She angrily wrote "I saw right through that (and I hope he chokes on that recorder.)"
  • Third Doctor- One of her favourite incarnations, remarking they had "a lot to talk about".
  • Fourth Doctor- Discovered that he held a passion for scarves, having a whole room of the TARDIS dedicated to his collection.
  • Fifth Doctor- Noticed his obsession with the Eye of Orion, which she was misled to believe was a nightclub.
  • Sixth Doctor- She did not like this incarnation as much, considering his abrasive personality and appearance to be like a clown put through a woodchipper.
  • Seventh Doctor- She found him "surpisingly Scottish".
  • Eighth Doctor- River loved the very elegant and cultured style of the TARDIS console room that he used.
  • Ninth Doctor- Accidentally set him off after mentioning the Time War and learned very quickly it was a bad idea to discuss it at all. (GAME: The Eternity Clock)

CHARACTER
Name: River Song
Canon: Doctor Who
Age: Unknown. [Time traveller. ]
Timeline: After the episode: The Name of the Doctor


Personality:
There are several things that make up the woman that would become River Song. Among them is her conditioning from the Silence who made her into what some could consider the perfect psychopath in order to accomplish their goal of killing the Doctor.

This conditioning made itself very apparent in River's second regeneration where she went by the name Mels. During this time she displayed poor behavioral control which showed itself in her constant arguments with school staff which landed her in detentions and the principals office near constantly. She was prone to boredom which lead to extreme impulsiveness that has in the past resulted in grand theft auto and in at least one occasion with one of those times involving a bus. Needless to say, she could have definitely be considered a juvenile delinquent with early behavior issues. Both contributing factors of becoming a psychopath later in life.

As she got older other such traits appear such as pathological lying, a lack of a sense of remorse and her ability to manipulate the people around her. Such as making her own parents realize they loved each other. Leading to their marriage where she ensured she would be born. It may have been self-serving, but it was the way she guaranteed the timeline would be intact.

It wasn't until she actually met the Doctor, and regenerated for the third time, that some of these traits seemed to lessen as she managed to break away from her conditioning. Among these, her lack of remorse or guilt. River still had no issue killing things only now she regretted killing who she was programed to kill. River also developed a sense of responsibility and eventual long-term goals.

Once she realized just how much the Doctor would mean to her in the future, she saved him. This went completely against her training and broke its control over her. Of course she still was manipulative, impulsive and charming when she wanted something. Only this time she actually had a goal other than killing someone. Part of this goal was protecting the ones she loved by agreeing to serve her sentence in the Stormcage. The other part of the goal was seeing The Doctor whenever she could and having her own adventures.

River would come to live for the days when she would travel with him. Even claiming that if the Doctor would die, no one in the universe would suffer more than her. What caused this? The Silence's mission was corrupted by her mother's influence. You see not all of her tendencies came from them. She shares a lot of her impulsiveness and sense of adventure with Amy. As for her sense of responsibility once their influence was broken? That came in part from Rory and a bit with her interactions with the Doctor. From the men in her life, she gained a sense of guilt and caution. Her guilt manifest in her desperateness to prevent killing the one she loved. And the caution in the form of her diary so she could make sure not to contaminate the timeline whenever she met up with the Doctor and her parents.

Because of River's impulsiveness it has lead to her getting into trouble despite being locked away in the Stormcage. She's very capable of breaking out and when she does it's usually on an impulse or to go traveling with her husband at night. More than one occasion it has gotten her into trouble like accidentally insulting Sontaran's and causing them to chase her half way across the universe. Which, also goes well with her need for adventure. It's part of the reason she became an archeologist. To here there was a thrill of discovery and danger that could potentially come with it. Plus, she is never bored.

Yet despite all of her confidence and impulsive nature, there is one this River fears more than anything else. She fears the day she looks into The Doctor's eyes and he doesn't know who she is. That is the day she dreads most of all and she knows it's approaching quickly. An when the day finally came? River's heart broke. It meant that all of their adventures, his love for her, everything they experience did not exist for him yet. That was the day she died. River wanted more than anything for those days to continue on like she knew she would so she saved him. Again.

Another key factor to the woman that is River Song is her sexuality. One of the traits of a psychopath happens to be promiscuous sexual behavior that she definitely displays. When she's with the Doctor, she will flirt with him at every chance. When she isn't with him, River will flirt and seduce any male or female she needs to either for kicks or to get what she wants. A few examples of this displays itself with how she manages to get men close enough so she can kiss them to apply the hallucinogenic lipstick she loves to use to make them do what she wants. She has also been noted to flirt with women just as much as men and even has little issues sharing tales of her exploits. Some of which, don't limit themselves to just humans.

Eventually, it's time and her experiences over the years that actually get River to become more stable and sensible with her adventures. Where she's impulsive and reckless in her first years of captivity, constantly escaping and going on various adventures, she becomes calmer and more reliable around the time of her pardon and even using her talents to investigate and help others.

After River died, she had a strong enough will to stick around as an echo, hoping to see the Doctor one last time. After everything they went through, she couldn't just leave without the last good bye. This desire let her hang around long enough to come in contact with Clara... and eventually the Doctor. When they were finally face to face she asked for that good bye stating the only way she would accept it. If he ever loved her, he had to say it like he would come back. He did and River finally had the one thing that would let her rest.

Background:
http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/River_Song

Abilities:
When it comes to abilities, River has quite a few. For starters, she can fly the TARDIS better than the Doctor can. Partially because the TARDIS itself taught River how to fly it. She is a quick learner and can read and write Old High Gallifreyan without help from the TARDIS translation circuits. River also is well versed and understands Temporal Theory and advanced sciences on a similar level to the Doctor's.

She's very,very, good at getting out of prison. Not to mention she has a similar grasp on Time and Space like that of a certain Timelords. She can handle a vortex manipulator to get herself wherever she wants or needs to be in time and space. She also has a doctorate from the Lunar University in Archeology which she puts to good use identifying time periods and artifacts to better help her tract The Doctor through time. River is also rather handy with a gun. She's a skilled enough shot to be able to shoot down several targets one right after the other without pausing or really looking.

It should be also mentioned she has one hell of a slap and has been known to slap her husband when he needs some sense knocked into him.


First Person:

[Video]
Well, I do admit this does look like a lot more fun than resting in peace.

[A woman with an amused smile and poofy hair appears on screen. River Song was still standing in the foggy train station and didn't look like she was in any hurry to continue on.]

Now, can someone tell me exactly what's going on? I was given a communications device so it's safe to assume there must be others that arrived here, correct?

[River pauses for a moment before smirking slightly. There was a very slim chance he might be here, but, if he was... well. She simply had to call a certain husband out.]

Oh and Sweetie if you can hear this, come and get me.


Third Person:
River still felt the the kiss on her lips even as she had been giving one last spoiler hint to certain a time traveler. Then, it was peace... until she felt the jerking motion of a train stopping. It startled her out of her peaceful state and forced the woman to open her eyes. Now how did she get on this train?

Doors opened and River stepped out. Now this was hardly what she expected. Then again, what had she expected? To see her parents again? Or perhaps to end up back in the Library's data banks. Or, maybe even nothing.

But this? Unless time was in an upheaval again, [and she would know if it did] this was not supposed to happen. The architecture was Earth in origin, late twentieth century maybe? Early twenty-first at the latest definitely. Whoever was doing the up keep on this place was barely holding it together and the fog just made the former companion wary. Nothing good ever came out of a fog. Unless it came with a certain blue box and bow-tie wearing man.

Then there was the matter of the urge to move towards the exit.

River let the compulsion drive her as far as the nearest bench before forcibly stopping herself. Hands slipped into her pockets for a moment as she resisted whatever forces were trying to get her to leave the station. Her fingers brushed against something round and cool in her left pocket and immediately she closed them around the object. Moments later she pulled it out so she could inspect the mystery object.

A gold pocket watch. She gazed at it curiously as she brought her other hand to gently touch the outer shell, looking for any hidden traps. Once she was satisfied that there were none, she carefully opened it. Well now, someone out there must really love her.

"You're no psychic paper, but I think I can definitely make use of you."

This mystery just kept on getting better.

No weapons, no vortex manipulator, no diary and a mysterious pocket watch communicator. This already looked like the makings of an interesting adventure.

<b>Canon:</b> Doctor Who
<b>Character:</b> River Song/ Melody Pond
<b>Timeline:</b> After the episode Angels take Manhattan [Series 7, episode 5], just as she's going up stairs in the TARDIS to write a certain book.

<b>Personality:</b>
River Song is a bit complicated.  First, her main motivator has always been The Doctor. Whether it was blaming him for histories disasters due to her brainwashing by The Silence or, because of how intense the brainwashing was, falling in love with him and wanting to marry the doctor [and wanting to kill him at the same time.]

Because of her conditioning, River is dangerous. She's  comfortable in her sexuality to the point of willingly using it against men in order to get what she wants. This is employed when she's breaking out of her prison cell by seducing a guard close enough to her so she can kiss them and administer a hallucinogenic with her lipstick, making her escape as simple as walking out the door. She also has no problem killing anyone that potentially stands in her way or threatens the people she cares for. This has displayed itself in her willingness to shoot down an attacking group of the Silence to cover her family's escape and even murdering a Dalek because it hurt the Doctor.

There have even been a few instances where she's described herself as the perfect psychopath  and does display several traits such as being a pathological liar, manipulative, lack of remorse [when it comes to things attempting to kill her/the people she loves], impulsive ect.  Despite this, she also shows traits unlike a psychopath. River has a sense of responsibility to her family and the Doctor, and a sense of remorse when it came to succeeding in her goal of killing the man she loved. [She killed him once, then realized just how much her parents cared for him and realized she made a mistake. River used up her remaining regenerations to save his life.]  This sense of responsibility is what has lead her to willingly stay in prison and accept her sentencing despite being able to break out whenever she wants.  This allowed her to protect the secret of the Doctor's death being a hoax.

She also has long-term goals, despite originally wanting to kill him, she wants to marry him and has married him.  Because of her love and devotion to him, River lives for the days that she runs off with the Doctor. Yet she is very aware that one day she will meet up with him and he won't know who she is. River dreads that day more than anything else. She has compared that eventual meeting as something worse than death to her.

Her career choice was also influenced by her love of that silly man with the blue box. River became an archeologist so she would have more chances of meeting up with him knowing that two things usually end up in a museum. Artifacts and Him.  She even stated her reasoning for her career path was so she could "Meet a good man", referring to The Doctor.

All of this has lead to an interesting mixture of stubbornness, sassy attitude [much like her mothers] and a deep sense of responsibility mixed with a playfulness being instilled in River.She can be both flirtatious and serious when the need arises.  For instance, Flirting with the doctor  despite the troubling issues of trying to figure out the cryptic messages referring to the Weeping Angels.  Or even flirting before she kills The Silence attacking them.

River has even displayed the willingness to die for the Doctor. At one point she volunteered to feed herself to the crack in space and time to save him. This devotion will eventually lead to her death in the Library on their last meeting.


<b>Background:</b>
The Condensed version.

River Song was born Melody Pond on an astroid called Demon's Run in the 52nd Century. She's the daughter of Amy Pond and Rory Williams who conceived her on their wedding night while the TARDIS was in mid flight. Because of this, The Silence and their minions took interest in her. They kidnapped Amy  and replaced her with a living flesh doppelganger while pregnant with Melody.

Once she was born, Melody was taken from her mother and brought to 20th Century Earth by Madame Kovarian, a servant of The Silence, to live in an orphanage in Florida in the year 1969 where she was raised and conditioned to kill the Doctor. The reason for this was due to the circumstances of Melody's birth. Because she was conceived in the time vortex while the TARDIS was in mid flight, she gained traces of Time Lord DNA mixed with her human DNA.  To them, this made her the perfect weapon to use in order to kill the Doctor.

While living in the orphanage, the Silence trained her, though River doesn't remember much of it.  To her, that time was a jumble due to The Silence's  memory erasing powers.   As she grew up in the orphanage, they would force her into an upgraded Apollo space suit  both to control her movements and to provide her with sustenance. While in the suit, the upgraded suit could put a frightened little girl in contact with the highest authority figure on Earth, which at the time was President Richard Nixon.  Because of these telephone calls, it lead to her first physical meeting with the Doctor as a little girl. 

During this meeting, she tried to approach The Doctor and Amy while in the space suit to ask for help. This lead to Amy shooting at her and damaging the suit's visor.  Melody was unharmed by the shot.

Three months later, she returns to Graystark [The orphanage] and meets Amy again to ask for help. Unfortunately, Amy was confused since there were pictures of Melody and Amy together when she was a baby, something that hadn't happened yet from Amy's perspective.  The distraction The Doctor and the rest provided for the Silents let Melody force her way out of the suit and escape.

From there, she made her way to New York City where she became gravely sick six months later and ended up regenerating for the first time because she was dying.

Her next regeneration left her as a toddler and somehow she found her way to Leadworth in the English countryside where she went by the name Mels and grew up with the child version of her parents. Through out her childhood, she would get in trouble and even became obsessed with Amy's imaginary friend, The Raggedy Doctor, to the point of stating that every historic disaster was his fault because he didn't go and stop it.  Which, was the Silence's conditioning talking. As she grew up with her parents, they unknowingly raised her. Amy would often take a parenting role with Mels, even lecturing her when she got in trouble, which was a lot.

As she grew older, the trouble only got worse and a few times ventured into grand theft auto.  Despite this, she also helped Amy see that Rory loved her and vice versa, guaranteeing her birth and their marriage.  As for the wedding, she missed it claiming "I don't do weddings." which stopped her from crossing her own timeline and meeting a future version of herself.

In the autumn of 2011, Mels stole a car and followed her parents to a cornfield where she encounters the Doctor and held him at gun point. She then demanded to  go and kill Hitler.  On their way to Nazi Germany, she accidentally shot the TARDIS and caused it to literally crash into Hitlers office and save him from being executed by the Teselecta, a machine that can imitate people and operated by time travelers looking to punish history's evil doers.  This also leads her to being accidentally shot by Hitler.

After being shot, she regenerates again, becoming the woman that The Doctor and the Ponds would know as River Song. From there, she poisoned The Doctor with a kiss using the poison from the Judas tree which had no antidote. Afterwards, she took off, stealing clothes and motorcycles  in Berlin. She even insulted several Nazi soldiers into attempting to shoot her. Which, because she had just regenerated, didn't kill her.

While the Doctor was dying, the Teselecta's operators realized that  River Song was  "The woman who killed The Doctor"  and set out to punish her next, leaving Hitler in a closet as they sought her out.  As they tried to capture her, Amy and Rory saved her by damaging the Teselecta's ability to recognize it's operators and forcing them to flee. This also left them in danger and unable to escape. Melody watched as  the Doctor tried to fight the pain and beg her to help him save her parents..

Because everyone kept mentioning this "River Song", Melody was starting to get a little jealous and a bit curious. She did not realize who they kept referring to  was until after she had piloted the TARDIS to save her parents from the Teselecta's defense systems. While on her little rescue mission the TARDIS taught  her how to fly it. The ship even referred to Melody as "The child of the TARDIS"  since she had been conceived on board.

 After saving her parents the Doctor gave Melody a message to tell River. This prompted her to ask Amy who River was. In response, Amy had the Teselecta turn into the woman known as  ' River'  revealing to Melody that it was a future version of herself. She then asked if the Doctor was worth saving.  Once she got a  yes from her mother, Melody sacrificed the rest of her regenerations to cure him of the poison and him and bring him back to life. She passed out soon after and they brought her to the best hospital in the universe to recover.

Before  they left, The Doctor gave her a TARDIS  shaped diary as a gift so she could keep their timelines straight to prevent "spoilers" since that could ruin the Universe.

Sometime after her recovery  River went on to the  Luna University to study archeology.  Her studies would lead her to discovering some of the Doctor's locations in the past.  This, made him much, much easier for her to find when she wanted to leave him messages. After all, there are two things guaranteed to show up in a museum. An old relic, and the Doctor.

On the day River received her Doctorate, Madame Kovarian re-entered her life. River was forced into an Apollo space suit for the second time and transported to Lake Silencio in Utah on April 22nd, 2011 to wait for the Doctor to show up. Once he did, she had to kill him.  Except, she emptied her weapons banks and tried to defy a fixed point in time, causing time to unravel and all of History to happen at once. 

While in the alternate timeline, she and Amy tried to figure out a way to stop time from ending. They couldn't.  In order to fix  the damage she caused, River ended up marrying the Doctor after confessing how much she loved him. Since they were the center of the distortion, they had to touch to make time stabilize again. Once he revealed to her that he would be safe from his own death inside the Teselecta, River gladly kissed him and fixed everything she had made wrong. Though once time was restored, the Doctor still had to appear as if he died by River's hand.

To keep up the idea that River murdered him, she  was sentenced to 12,000 life sentences in the Stormcage Containment Facility in the 52nd Century.  River escaped often to spend time with her husband only to return to her cell when the adventures through.

After several random off again on again adventures, she would eventually met up with the Doctor was on her birthday where he took her to the last Winer Frost Fair on the River Thames in 1814. There he had Stevie Wonder play for her under London Bridge.

Moments after her return to Stormcage, she encountered Rory in his Roman uniform and asked her to come to Demon's Run. After checking her diary and realizing what point in time it was, she refused. River  stated she couldn't be there until the very end.

It was after Kovarian fled with her first incarnation at the end of the battle that she did finally show up. The Doctor was furious with her for not coming before now. Then River gave him a hint as to who she really was. Once he realized what she meant, he went from being furious to happy and dashed off to try and find her. This left River to explain to  her own parents what was going on.

Sometime after that, she received an invitation from the Doctor while in her cell at Stormcage. She quickly  escaped and met up with Amy and Rory in America where they went on a picnic to Lake Silencio  with the Doctor.  She witnesses a younger version of herself  kill the Doctor, only knowing this time that he was in the Teselecta and having to pretend she didn't know anything. 

From there, she had to revisit her childhood with them, only keeping all her knowledge to herself as to not corrupt her own timeline which she was currently folded back on.

When everyone split up to investigate the Silence, she ended up in New York City where she took a dive off of the 50th floor of a building, trusting the Doctor to save her. Which he did and she ended up diving right into the swimming pool aboard the TARDIS.  She then helped them defeat the Silence, even killing a few that were holding Amy hostage.

After their little adventure, she was returned to the Stormcage where she kissed him good bye. She then realized that from the Doctor's perspective, that was their first kiss. Which saddened her a little. From this point on, she knew him more and he knew her less and less with each meeting.

The next time she would escape, it would be due to a phone call routed to her from the TARDIS. The call was from Winston Churchill looking to give the Doctor a message about a painting  created by Vincent Van Gough. This lead her to go and steal the very same  painting from Queen Elizabeth the 10th, black mail a vortex manipulator off of Dorium Maldovar and graffiti a diamond cliff as the dawn of time with co-ordinates and then travel to England in 102 AD to meet  the Doctor and Amy at stonehenge while pretending to be Cleopatra and commanding an entire legion of Roman Soldiers which eventually turned out to be Nestines.

Stonehenge had been emitting a signal, drawing all of the Doctor's enemies to that one point to claim the Pandorica. Or so they thought. River went to get the TARDIS from where the Doctor left it and instead of piloting it to where they needed it, she ended up at Amy's house on June 26th 2010.  When trying to go back to 102 A.D., the TARDIS exploded and she was caught in a time loop for the first moments of the explosion until the Doctor rescued her in 1996.

Once rescued, she assisted in his plan to reboot the universe using the Pandorica and made the Dalek that shot him beg for mercy before killing it herself.

By rebooting the universe, he also erased himself from it. River left her blank diary at her parent's wedding reception to help Amy remember him and bring the Doctor back.  After he came back, they had a brief conversation that left The Doctor with more questions about her.  She assured him that he would find out soon who she was and that's when everything changes before disappearing.

The next time  they met up, it was at the crash of the Byzantium where she had went to great lengths of graffitiing the ships homing box  to get the Doctor's attention knowing that he would eventually end up in the museum where it would reside.

 When they arrived, River was greeted with a Doctor and Amy that barely knew her.   From there, they ended up fighting and defeating an entire army of Weeping Angels.

After this adventure, she visited her parents in the present and told them the Doctor was alive.

At some point River was later pardoned and release from the Stormcage after the Doctor went out and erased himself from every database in the universe. Without evidence that the man she killed ever existed, she was free to go. River returned to Archaeology and became a professor.

While investigating Weeping Angels, she ended up in New York City in 1938 where she went about investigating Weeping Angel's invading the city. She discovered a cloning plot involving a movie studio and the use of the Angel's and put a stop to it.

Soon after, she ran into Rory after he was sent back to 1938 by an Angel. From there, she encountered her husband after being caught in the grasp on an Angel. To get out, she had to break her wrist which he later healed with a bit of regeneration energy. Something which River was not happy about, even going as far as calling him a sentimental old fool and claiming that was a waste of regeneration energy.

 After that, they had to track down Rory at Winter Quay where he had been sent by the Angels. They discovered that Winter Quay was an Angel's version of a farm. They would capture people and send them back in time to live out their lives in one of the many apartments until they died. Rory was to be one of those victims, since they watched an older version of him die.

In order to defeat the Angel's, River and her husband watched as Rory and Amy sacrificed themselves by jumping off the roof to create a paradox. This poisoned the Angel's food supply. This caused everyone to end back up at the TARDIS which happened to arrive in a graveyard in 2012 Manhattan.

Before any of them could get into the TARDIS and take off, Rory noticed a headstone with his name on it just as an Angel ambushed them and sent him back in time. Because of the paradox from earlier, they couldn't go and get him. Amy decided to follow after Rory, letting the Angel send her back in time as well after telling River to be a good girl and to watch after the Doctor.

Her husband asked her to travel with him after that. River agreed, but not all the time saying "Only room for one psychopath" on the TARDIS.  After that,  she headed upstairs to write the book that lead to the Doctor's adventure in Manhattan 1938 and then to send it to Amy for publishing with an afterward written for the Doctor.

Additional Background notes:
River has met all of the Doctor's previous incarnations, just not in order.  Each time she had to wipe his memory of their meeting as to not contaminate their timeline.


<b>Abilities/Additional Notes:</b>
Abiltiies:

River Song has displayed several abilities throughout her appearances. She is agile and a crack shot with a gun. She has little problem shooting a cowboy hat off the Doctor's head or even taking down several enemies in a fight without getting hurt.

Her knowledge of time and the universe are extensive due to first, being an archeologist and  second, her time on the TARDIS traveling with the doctor. She also knows how to correctly pilot the TARDIS having been taught by the ship itself at one point.

Prison's can't seem to hold her and it's heavily implied that she has no trouble breaking in or out of her prison cell. She stays due to a promise she made.

She also knows her way around technology.. River has also displayed extensive knowledge of the Time lords ranging from being able to read and write Old High Gallifreyan to knowledge of their anatomy and how to kill them.

For the most part, she is  human with a bit of Time lord DNA. So far, it has only showed itself in an awareness of Time and the ability to regenerate which she lost when she gave up her remaining lives to save the Doctor after killing him on her first meeting with him as an adult.


<b>Sample Journal Post:</b>

[Voice/Video]
If you wanted my attention bad enough to pull me away from my husband, the least you could have done would have been to send me somewhere warm and given me flowers.  Otherwise, you really shouldn't have bothered.

<small>[For a few brief moments there's the sound of buttons being pressed on some device. A device that definitely wasn't the PCD.

 Once the beeping stopped, the video function got turned on to reveal a woman with hazel eyes and very curly brown hair. She just might be shivering slightly since all she's wearing seems to be a tight low cut black dress and a brown trench coat.]</small>

Now, can someone explain why a place that should be impossible exists? I would simply love to get a few answers before I decide to take matters into my own hands. And trust me, they are <i>very</i> skilled hands.


<b>Sample RP:</b>

The moment the hand held communication device was turned off, River slipped it into her pocket and pulled back out her scanner. She began to fiddle with the device before cross referencing something on the vortex manipulator on her wrist.

It may not be a sonic screwdriver, but they definitely worked in a pinch. Her first order of business was to find out exactly when and where she was, which, wasn't looking to be an easy task. Where ever she was, there were enough temporal anomalies to make the Manhattan she just left look like a walk in the park.

Something this big really was hard for her to resist and chances were that  if she stuck around long enough,  a certain handsome time traveller might just show up on her doorstep again.  With that in mind, River closed the top of her vortex manipulator and slid the scanner in her pocket before buttoning up and tying the trench coat closed.

"Now lets see what kind of fun I can have around here."

River gave the area she arrived in one more glance before beginning to walk. With how strange this place was registering on her devices, the best way to find out what was going on was to find someone and ask. And, if she needed to, either seduce them or shoot them. She might even get to do both at the same time.
