I rewatched “Face the Raven” yesterday and this episode kills me every time. After the series 9 finale, we knew Clara got all time and space in her TARDIS and “became a Doctor herself” (which was a good closure for her character in my opinion), but “Face the Raven” is still the episode of her real death and it’s still sad.
As Ten says in “Blink”, “from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, [time] is more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey… stuff”. We know (expect) Clara had years and years travelling, having adventures, enjoying herself, but in “Face the Raven” the Doctor doesn’t know it, like we didn’t the first time we watched it. And I think that’s the reason (putting Clara’s death and all the things that it implicates aside) the episode makes me sad.
The Doctor sees his most important person dying right in front of him and he can do nothing but watch the whole thing happening. Clara, his Clara, screaming in pain. Blowing away like smoke. She had a lifetime of joy, pain, hope and anger. She lived, but he doesn’t know it. And she did because of him. Because he’d be trapped inside his confession dial for 4.5 BILLION YEARS, facing the same fears day after day, just to have a chance to save her. He’d be exhausted and hopeless, he’d want to give up sometimes, but he’d never really do that because her chance to live depended on him. He could leave anytime, but he chose to stay and fight. Because, if by choosing to stay she’d have a chance, then it wasn’t a choice at all.
And that’s one of the reasons why Whouffaldi is one of the most powerful relantionships I’ve ever seen in fiction.
I’ve heard this question a few times from multiple people that, “Game starts with a tornado vision, Max uses her powers for the first time in the bathroom, so if she didn’t use her powers before that how did they cause the tornado?”
In this what happens is, the effect (tornado) takes places before the cause (Max using her powers) for the reason that the cause will happen in the future.
As the 10th doctor said, “People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”
So the effect can take place before the cause, specially when time travel is involved.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff. Time travel, Newt. Beautiful, wonderful, time travel. But I wouldn't ask questions you don't want to know the answer to, or go around meddling with time. Bad things happen to wizards that mess with time.
This sounds very much like a lecture I’ve received before, although I can’t remember when.
The "you were the only one in the class who got my fandom reference" percico highschool au, please? I really love your fanfics!
Awww! Thank you anon!
Percy was bored in history class. He listened as Mr. Chiron drone on and on about the beginning on time.
“Historians have events in a linear fashion. One event caused another.”
“Actually people assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.” Percy said out loud instead of in his head.
Everyone in the class was staring at him, even the teacher.
Percy’s cheeks were dark red when he heard a stifled laugh from the right side of the classroom.
Percy looked over and there was a kid dressed in all black covering his mouth.
Everyone turned to look at him.
The boy looked around at the class. “What? Doctor Who, tenth doctor. That’s the exact quote from the show.”
Mr. Chiron cleared his throat and started talking again.
The boy had a tiny smile at Percy before looking forward again.
At the end of class, Percy went over to the boy.
“Nico, right?” Percy asked.
Nico nodded. “Yeah. Percy, the guy who made the Doctor Who reference and made history class interesting.”
“Yeah, I didn’t think anyone else got that joke.”
“Cause they’re all lame. Doctor Who, especially Tennant, is amazing.” Nico smiled.
“Yes. And Smith. Matt Smith was amazing!” Percy smiled.
The two boys walked out of class talking about their favorite TV show, fighting about their favorite companions and enemies.
“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect; but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.”
You’re thinking of time as a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a… a… a…. I don’t know. I’ll think of a good end to that sentence one day.
