I never really understood how people could get stuck on one companion until Amy Pond. I like most of them, really love quite a few and was very sad when some left but when I think of a modern companion I feel like I’ll always think of Amy.
Her character was just so real to me and well draw without having things laid out with a lot of dull family drama. She was so angry and broken when we first see her as a young woman and we see her become an adult. Grow and change suffer and become stronger.
I love her because she was a messed up kid who everyone thought was crazy but the Doctor helped her become a grown up who was strong and reliable and really believed in herself and her love and her ability to be that with out her raggedy Doctor. I feel like a lot of us turn to fandom when we are feeling messed up and like the world is against us and we can find things in stories that help us grow even when those stories get put back on the shelf. She was a perfect metaphor for what Doctor Who means to a lot of us and for that she will always hold a special place.

"Hydrophobic water"
This liquid with a high surface tension is water mixed with aerogel powder (I’m going to do a post on aerogel next as it really is awesome). The membrane of the liquid has some hydrophobic qualities that cause the droplets of water to repel each other and not plop back together.
"For anyone with any slight interest in biology, this is how your cells stay separate. The lipid membranes essentially work the same way, making hydrophobic force between the water content inside and outside the cell."
