Amelia Jessica Pond,
"When I was a kid I had an imaginary friend. The Raggedy Doctor. My Raggedy Doctor. But he wasn't imaginary. He was real. I remember you. I remember! I brought the others back, I can bring you home too. Raggedy Man, I remember you and you are late for my wedding!"

APPEARANCE. Amy is a tall, leggy redhead of Scottish descent with a liberal smattering of freckles across her face, and deep green eyes. Amy often paints her fingernails a variety of bright, bold colors, and she does enjoy getting into the TARDIS' odd and varied store of clothing from time to time, though normally she tends to dress smartly.

✧ THE DEPTH,
PERSONALITY. Amy can be labeled a "feisty redhead" -- she's strong willed and bull headed, and she has a temper to match. She's very brave and doesn't frighten easily. In fact, the Doctor has gone so far as to call her husband "Mr. Pond" (as opposed to Mr. Williams, which, according to Earth custom, is how he should be addressed). However, Amy is no tyrant. She is usually quite reasonable and amiable, actually. She is also creative, open minded and adventurous, and she loves to try new things. Traveling with the Eleventh Doctor has been -- and is -- the highlight of her life. It is only slightly troubling that she's not more excited about spending time with her husband (who she often playfully calls "Stupid Face"), while she's openly ecstatic about going places with the Doctor.
BIOGRAPHY. Amy Pond was born in Scotland in the year 1989, and her family moved to Leadworth -- a town in England -- where she spent the next seven years. The crack in her wall altered her life against her will, sucking in her parents and leaving her an orphan. And then, the Eleventh Doctor came and offered her an opportunity to leave everything behind to go on adventures through time and space with him, and to wait for him -- that he'd be right back in five minutes. Terribly excited, Amy packed a suitcase and waited... and waited...
But, the Doctor never came, and eventually Amy gave up and was forced to face Reality. Over the next twelve years, Amy's aunt tried to force her to grow up and give up on her "imaginary" Raggedy Doctor -- and she went kicking and screaming from psychologist to psychologist, as they tried to convince her that the Doctor didn't really exist.
But Amy knew otherwise...
She eventually took a job as a kiss-o-gram girl and fell in love with her best friend, Rory. And then one day, the Doctor returned. Amy helped him with Prisoner Zero and the Atraxi, and then he disappeared again, only to return two years later -- the night before Amy and Rory were to be married.
Amy didn't tell the Doctor of her impending nuptials, and she agreed to run away with him -- on one condition: that he return her to Earth before the following morning.
Amy -- and eventually Rory, as well -- joined the Eleventh Doctor on several adventures, and true to his word, the Doctor returned both Amy and Rory to Earth in time for their wedding -- and, he managed to patch up all of the cracks in reality, allowing Amy's mum and dad to return to Reality.
Near the end of their wedding reception, Amy and Rory again ran away with the Doctor, bidding their friends and family a quick adieu! before piling back into the TARDIS for more adventures…
After a very exciting honeymoon, courtesy of the Doctor, a pregnant Amy was kidnapped by Madame Kovarian and the Church and replaced with a Ganger who had been perfectly synchronized to her senses. It took nearly the entire nine months of Amy's pregnancy to pass before the Doctor was able to figure out that he had a Ganger on board the TARDIS, and he promptly severed the Ganger's connection to Amy, destroying it -- but not before promising Amy that he and Rory were on their way to save her.
Meanwhile, Amy gave birth to baby Melody Pond, but the baby was taken from her by Madame Kovarian, who had left behind a Ganger replica of the baby while she made her getaway from Demons Run. The baby was to be used as a weapon against the Doctor, chosen for this purpose because she had traces of Time Lord DNA mixed in her human DNA as a result of being conceived on board the TARDIS while it was in flight.
It was shortly after the baby that Amy had been holding reverted back to "flesh" and melted in her arms, that River Song joined them on Demons Run and explained that she is actually Amy's baby girl all grown up.
Amy and Rory returned home with a promise from the Doctor that he would find their baby. After waiting “all summer”, they grew tired of waiting, and so they went out of their way to attract the Doctor’s attention -- but not before their best friend, Mels, showed up with a stolen Corvette. Holding the others at gunpoint, Mels directed the Doctor to take them back in time so that she could kill Hitler. They had gone too far into the past, however, and came upon Hitler before he committed his atrocities. That didn’t seem to bother Mels, though. Ironically, it was on her mission to assassinate someone, when she, herself, wound up taking a bullet -- and then, after telling them that she’s their little girl all grown up, Mels regenerates into who we already know to be River Song.
And Amy and Rory are stunned to have learned that, even though the Doctor couldn’t return their baby to them, they still wound up “bringing up” / looking after her in the form of their best friend, Mels.
Soon, Mels’ childhood training and programming by The Silence kicked in, and she succeeded in killing the Doctor; however, she then learns that she’s made a huge mistake. In an effort to save the man she just tried to murder, Mels/River uses her remaining regeneration energy -- all of it -- to bring him back from the brink of death. She succeeds, but at a great cost to herself. The others drop River off at the hospital with the Sisters of the Infinite Schism, where she can heal, and then presumably go on to properly become “our” River Song.
Adventures with the Doctor and Rory continued. At one point, Amy found herself turned into a living peg doll by a very frightened young alien in the guise of a child on Earth. They sorted that out, thankfully. And then there was that one time when Amy accidentally became trapped in an accidental, alternate timeline, wherein she was the sole “patient” in a place that couldn’t “heal” without killing her -- and wherein she grew old. Her younger self from our timeline managed to convince the older Amy to help them fix things, and in doing so, older Amy essentially un-wrote herself from existence. Trippy, right?
There were several other adventures, too -- but everything came to a halt after their experience in a prison for a Minotaur, disguised as a hotel which feeds on the fear of its guests. After that one, the Doctor dropped Amy and Rory off at their new home, and left Rory with a set of keys to his dream car -- and just like that, the Doctor was gone. He’d thought it was for the best, apparently, that they cut ties -- that Mr. and Mrs. Williams ought to be able to have their own life…
… But he was wrong.
Amy became a model. Rory went back to nursing. They lived in London now; things were different. At some point, Amy was taken to the Black Archive by UNIT to have her record as a companion of the Doctor taken. Her memories of the visit were subsequently erased and she was sent on her way, none the wiser.
And then, Time went wonky -- all of Time seemed to be trying to happen all at once, though it couldn’t progress… And it was all River’s fault. In order to set things right, River and the Doctor had a rushed, but sweet, wedding -- just as Reality itself was about to blink out. When they touched, Time was able to return to normal, and it was as if the Time snafu had never happened. But, Amy remembered it. She remembered what she did to Madame Kovarian during that Time Crisis, too -- and that really haunted her for a while.
It also haunted her that she was now the Doctor’s mother-in-law.
But most of all, there was the fact that the Doctor was dead. She’d seen it happen at Lake Silencio. She watched as they gave the Doctor a viking funeral. It had happened. He was gone.
And then River turned up, freshly pardoned -- a free woman -- and with news of the Doctor: he wasn’t dead. River explained the whole thing to her mother -- and then got to repeat it for her father when he came home a few minutes later…
The Doctor lived! But, they wouldn’t see him again for another two years -- at Christmas, for dinner. However, when he left them this time, the Doctor promised to keep in touch -- and he did, usually, at least monthly.
However, the Williams’ marriage wasn’t that of a fairytale. They were having problems. After several attempts to conceive a child, Amy discovered that she was sterile and would never be able to have another baby. She didn’t tell Rory and instead assumed that having a child was the only thing that mattered to him, and since she couldn’t give him a child, perhaps it would be better for him to find someone else who can. She thought she was doing him a favor, while she was breaking her own heart, and the couple filed for divorce.
And then she and Rory, and the Doctor were kidnapped by Daleks and sent on a dangerous mission -- one that the Daleks didn’t expect them to survive, that took them to the Dalek Asylum. They almost didn’t make it out of there before the whole place exploded. Just before it would have been too late, Amy and Rory finally had the chance to talk about their issues with each other. Once the truth was out, the divorce was off. They’d made up. And then, the Doctor saved them all and took them back home.
Ten months later, the Doctor came back and took Amy and Rory -- and inadvertently, also Rory’s dad -- as well as Queen Nefertiti of Egypt and John Riddell, a 20th-century game hunter, into space, onto a ship that they would discover contained dinosaurs! Afterward, Amy and Rory went home, while Rory’s dad, Brian, had his own adventures with the Doctor.
There was a wild west adventure, wherein Amy learned that she has terrible aim and probably could benefit from a gun safety course. And then back home again. Amy became a travel writer. One day, black cubes flooded the Earth, and the Doctor came back to investigate. He stayed in the same timezone for a few days with Rory and Amy, observing these cubes -- and then he couldn’t take it anymore and left the cube-watching to the others. After a year, the cubes started counting down; thankfully, it didn’t take hardly any time at all for the Doctor to thwart the big bad and save the planet.
On Amy and Rory’s anniversary, the Doctor took them on a trip -- wherein Amy accidentally married King Henry VIII. They had been struggling with deciding between having a normal life, or having life with the Doctor, and at Brian’s urging, the Williams’ returned to life on the TARDIS. That is, until they arrived in 2012, New York City. Something was off, right from the get-go. They should have left and gone somewhere else -- anywhere else. But, the Doctor just had to scratch that itch, and then… voila! they were all trapped in a paradox caused by the Weeping Angels.
To escape the looping paradox, Amy and Rory jumped from the roof of Winter Quay, essentially sacrificing themselves to break the loop the Angels had created -- and thank goodness, it worked. Everyone had been returned to the same place they’d started from: the cemetery in NYC, in 2012. River was there, too -- but so were the Angels… And then, they saw the headstone with Rory’s name on it -- and he was gone. The Angels sent him back in time.
Amy had to make a choice, and quickly. Should she make her way back to the TARDIS with River and the Doctor and get the heck out of there? Or, should she trust her limited knowledge of the Weeping Angels and her instincts, because if they sent her back in time she might find Rory again?
She chose Rory. This was really her only option, as far as Amy saw it.
With a tearful goodbye, Amy let the Angel that took her husband send her away, too -- and her gamble paid off. The couple found each other in 1938 and settled into their new lives in the past. Amy became a writer. By the early 1940s, Amy joined Torchwood New York in an effort to locate young Melody, who Amy knew would reach New York by 1970.
Amy retired from Torchwood at age 65 in 1967 and spent the next 17 years happily with Rory. For years, she would often go out into the city to look for young Melody, but Amy never found her; however, River still visits from time to time.
OTHER/MEDICAL INFORMATION. As with some past companions of the Doctor, Amy ages much slower than everyone else on Earth. It’s likely due from absorbing excess artron energy, while traveling with the Doctor in the TARDIS.
Due to growing up with that crack in her wall, the Universe had been pouring into her head (The Doctor’s words), Amy is “special”. She was able to remember people back into existence (such as The Doctor) after they had previously vanished into the Void.
Also, Amy can’t have any more children due to what happened to her at Demon’s Run, preceding the birth of Melody.
1994 - Leadworth Fairgrounds
”I don’t understand... Why are ye doing this? Wot’s tha point?” Amy asked as she made her way from the control console of the TARDIS to the door. She was dressed in a sleeping gown, a light bathrobe and a ratty old pair of slippers, but the Doctor wanted her to go with him somewhere (and he didn’t particularly care what Amy wore, so long as she was clothed).
“The nice lady- What’d she say to you?” The Doctor asked, leaning his lanky frame in the doorway of the TARDIS, wearing a fabulous white tuxedo.
Amy crossed her arms, gave a slight roll of her eyes and grumpily replied, “Cheer up. Have an ice cream.”
“Amy, time and space is never, ever going to make any kind of sense. A long time ago, you got the best possible advice on how to deal with that. So! I suggest,” he said, turning around and opening the doors of the TARDIS, “you go and give it,” he sagely advised, turning around to present Amy with an encouraging smile.
“Okay... Okay, so I have a big, important question about Life, an’ ye’re basically tellin’ me ta go an’ buy myself an ice cream...” Amy said, pouting a bit as she stood beside her best friend.
The Doctor reached up a long arm and rested it on Amy’s shoulders as they gazed out of the doors of the TARDIS on the cheerful fairground scene before them. “No, Amy - I’m telling you to go buy us both ice creams,” he replied. “I love fairgrounds.”
“I hate you,” Amy casually uttered, though she certainly didn’t mean it.
“No, you don’t...” the Doctor corrected her, giving Amy a gentle squeeze before they headed outside. “Do you get a bit scared on ghost trains? I get a bit scared, so is it okay if I hold your hand?” he asked, effectively changing the topic - at least, for now...
Amy giggled. "Yeah, o' course i'tis," she replied with an impish smirk. "So long as I get ta tease ye about it later," Amy countered. "An' maybe ye can try ta win me a teddy bear, o' a stuffed unicorn, o' somethin'...?" Amy figured she might as well go for broke.
Little Amelia Pond and her best friend Mels got permission to go to the fairgrounds, so long as they were home before 10pm. Their last little adventure took place in the Hall of Mirrors, where they unknowingly lost their friend Rory... and the girls didn’t realize that Rory was missing until they were standing in line for ice cream.
“Rory, wot kind d’ye want?” Amelia asked, turning around to face him, but... Rory wasn’t there. She looked questioningly at Mels and asked, “Where’d he go?”
Mels shrugged. “Not a clue. But, if he doesn’t show up soon, he’s going to miss out on ice cream,” she said with a devilish grin. “Silly Rory,” she declared.
Amelia nodded in agreement. “Yeah, ye’re right,” she replied, giving a slight roll of her eyes. “Wot a stupid-face!” The girls erupted into giggles and had to be sort of shouted at by the ice cream man to place their order.
Soon after, the two girls were walking side by side between the fair booths, chattering away about how boys were stupid, and how other girls were even more stupid, when Amelia tripped over an untied shoelace. She fell face-first into the dirt, despite having dropped her ice cream to try to break her fall. Amelia wasn’t hurt -- not really. She’d probably have a few bruises in the morning, but that would be it. What had been hurt, however, was her pride. Amelia not only suffered the embarrassment of falling down in public, but also... she dropped her ice cream and didn’t have enough money to get a new one.
And then, Amelia started to cry, right there in the middle of the walkway...
