While I don't completely agree with all you've written, your analyst of River v. Rose is right on target. I would add only that Melody Pond is a Time Lord (without any regenerations left) who doesn't know how to be like the Doctor yet (the mad man with a box). Hence his constantly giving her rules in "Let's Kill Hitler." In short, because the Doctor tutors her starting with this episode, she become the "badass" we've already seen, the one that's in his past.

If it's any consolation, River tells Amy that she just returned from the episodes: Time of Angels & Flesh & Stone. That means the next time we the audience will see her will be at the Library where she meets her end.

Again, a good essay. Thank you!
