the classic/eu doctor who fandom, featuring such ideas as ‘what if everything was the same, but time lords had bunny ears’, ‘what if two doctors loomed a child’, ‘graphic doctor on doctor pornography’ and ‘ok, look, just hear me out, time lord dragons’
I always wondered whether the Pythia’s Curse was actually real or was more of a just so story about why the Time Lords moved away from sexual reproduction
Hadn’t even thought of that. Been a long time since I’ve read Lungbarrow, so can’t remember how much confirmation there was one way or the other. But it would be a very Rassilon thing to do, using that story to manipulate Gallifreyan society into the path that he designed, while all the time claiming he did it because he’s a great hero who saved them from a terrible enemy!
