It was a shrine

You watch an episode dozens of times, but it’s a chance comment from somebody that makes you look at it entirely differently. I was watching one of those YouTube reaction videos for “Heaven Sent” and the guy pointed out that the flowers in the portrait room were lilies. I’m not much of a flower person so I honestly never recognized them as such.

And then I realized: This wasn’t just a bedroom where he randomly placed the painting of Clara that he (according to Moffat) painted.

This was a full-out shrine. Her portrait in a prominent place, where the sun can shine on it. Candles nearby. A somewhat sombre atmosphere to begin with. The Doctor later coming back here to be with her portrait.

This was Clara’s shrine. I’ve known people who have set up similar rooms for lost loved ones. Often it’s where their ashes are kept, too. The fact there’s a fireplace here, a place where you’ll usually find ashes, couldn’t possibly have been intentional symbolism … could it?

I’m still not over Donna and how perfect she was a companion to Ten. 
That was pure friendship.
I’m still not over her forgetting him. I’m still not over Ten loosing her. 
I’m still not over it
And I really hope Bill will have a friendship with twelve similar to them, because ‘companion having a crush and just drops it after a while’ is kind of depressing. I want friendship. I want Bill not taking his shit like ever. And I want Bill to super-duppa get along with the TARDIS and pull together pranks on Twelve. 

Whouffaldi that speaks to  my heart #2.

This is “Between one heartbeat and the last” by 

This is a wonderful image, it really captures the concern and care they both feel for one another. I love that in her last moments of life Clara looks after him, and tries to protect him from the damage his rage would do. 

I used this picture (with the artists permission) as an icon for the “Post Hell Bent Fixits" collection on AO3, as it so nicely sums up that last moment, but also leaves us free to speculate on what comes next. Great work always leaves us with questions, I think, and this one does.


Taking the facial features of a man he had saved in his tenth form as a reminder that the Doctor saves people, the Twelfth Doctor has struggled to come to terms with his inner demons since regeneration. Outwardly brusque, the Twelfth Doctor is rarely seen without Clara Oswald at his side, keeping him in check. The pair are sometimes aided by the unorthodox Paternoster Gang. The Twelfth Doctor has faced perennial foes such as Daleks and Cybermen while overcoming other, newer adversaries – armed with little more than his sonic sunglasses, an electric guitar and his ‘attack eyebrows’…

This box contains the following unpainted pewter miniatures: The Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald, Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, Strax and 5 plastic bases for use in the Into the Time Vortex game.

I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it *__*
