Well, in the latest episode, we now know that the cracks in time are emanating from the day of Amy's wedding, and probably the place the place - not necessarily from her
, but she's definitely a "carrier," and close to the epicentre. I think we can put down any time and age discrepancies to that.
Could it be the crack in her wall has kept her 7 - and kind of in stasis - for ages, by eating the future the might have had had she grown up? And eaten her past too, which is why no one remembers how long she's lived? She grew up once the crack was closed, but she'd been a child for so long that it kind of stuck, explaining why she seems young for her age. Does that make any sense? Or maybe, since things that fall through the cracks cease to have been, events of her life have been eaten away, so that things that might have matured her haven't - again, why she's young for her age.
Meanwhile, in the Flesh and Stone thread, Snark Shark
says this about Amy's attempt to jump the Doctor's bones:
The thing with Amy isn't that she wants sex. That's true. She doesn't know WHAT she wants. She's acting up. Really what this is for her is a kind of adult version of the "Magic Man" fantasy she had as a kid. It's her confusion manifested.
A, well put. B, on the same subject, I described it as a way to hide from the various fears that were plaguing her; Amy seems like someone who spends a lot of time hiding herself. And probably from
herself as well, because on a subconscious level, I think she knows that there's something
wrong with her life. That room she spent twelve years not seeing is mirrored inside her.
Which doesn't really add up to me making a point, except that it's interesting to see a companion who's damaged in that kind of way. I don't think we've seen it before - people who doubt themselves, or don't do so when they should, sure - but never someone who life is metaphysically wrong.
I wonder if Amy will have to die to fix the universe?
