Pet peeve: the Doctors are numbered 1-12, except the War Doctor. The others have a last name separated by an exclamation point, like Warner!Three or, or an epithet like Shalka!Doctor. The Masters are written similarly, like Delgado!Master, or Ainley!Master, except for Crispy Master and Missy, who have nicknames. The Romanas are I, II, and III, except for Trey, and the Rani doesn’t even have a system. This is bothering my need as a scientist to have everything neatly described with a universal classification system
I was in love with him from that moment in Deep Breath.
I didn’t know what a regeneration did to a Time Lord. I was just laughing the whole time. Initially, I thought he was joking or something. But as we keep going in this episode, we discover how lost he feels within himself and is desperate for a friend.
Apart from Capaldi’s acting, I really took to Twelve. I heard what he was saying. He could have gone and tried to figure out what had changed about him on his own, but he didn’t do that. He reached out to a friend. A powerful, renegade Time Lord with a TARDIS reaches out to a human for support.
There are many who live amongst us who are here and fighting their demons alone, and they sometimes they lack the courage to ask for help. Twelve, in all his human-like frailty of spirit, reaches out to the only person he believes can help him. I love that message. I hope people don’t miss that.
Twelve is so special to me. I tear up every time I think about him regenerating. I truly hope future fans don’t forget/ignore him. Give him a chance. He is a very good Doctor! (7.16.2017)
AND ALSO OK GUYS I ACTUALLY DID 1-12 PLUS THE WAR DOCTOR BUT MY CLASSIC WHO IS STILL IFFY SO YOU HAVE TO TELL ME IF SOMETHING I WROTE IS WRONG, OKAY?
How the Doctor would kiss you…
The First Doctor never really understood what the whole kissing business was about, seeing as it was highly frowned upon and therefore never done on Gallifrey. You had to introduce him to the idea, which he happily took to. At first, he just saw it as a ‘fascinating alien courting ritual,’ and he made all sorts of observations about the simultaneous uses of teeth and tongues and lips and how a kissing pair had to angle their heads in order to not bump noses, but that scientific view on things quickly faded when he realized how much he enjoyed it. So now he’s the one who’s always initiating kisses. He likes to keep you close all the time, but he’s especially cuddly for kisses. You didn’t teach him that- he must be a natural.
The Second Doctor gives kisses regularly, like clockwork. Literally, you could probably tell time by them. He kisses you when you wake up, he kisses you at breakfast, he kisses you when you check each other over before leaving the house, and so on and so forth. Occasionally you surprise him with a kiss that wasn’t 'on schedule,’ and it usually gets him blushing and muttering himself into a ramble. You don’t mind, of course. It’s always very flattering to know how much your kisses affect him.
The Third Doctor gives the kind of kisses that make people ask if you’re married. He’ll be walking with you, arm-in-arm, and he’ll lean over to kiss you on the corner of your mouth. He kisses you before and after either one of you leave the room, and each kiss is always accompanied by a happy “My Dear.” His kisses are soft and chaste, happily given and eagerly received. There’s no shortage of them, but don’t forget to give him kisses, as well. It’s nice when he’s reminded that you feel just as much affection as he does.
The Fourth Doctor is wholly enthusiastic about kissing. You say something clever? You get a kiss. You help him save a planet? You get a kiss. You give him jelly babies? You get a kiss. Whenever he gets a 'eureka!’ moment, he turns around, grabs you by your shoulders, and plants a sloppy kiss right on your mouth. Kissing you against the side of the TARDIS is one of his favorite activities, which he engages in as often as he can. And, if anyone looks, he couldn’t care less.
The Fifth Doctor is all up for kisses. On the cheek, on the forehead, on your nose. But for the real kisses, he’s a puddle of goo. Call it an overload of sweetness if you like, but those kisses are so perfectly happy and tender that they belong in some teenage romance novel. He’s not much for excessive PDA, but there’s nothing that will stop him from giving you a kiss when you’re being brilliant, whether people are watching or not. Oddly enough, he has the funny habit of holding you at your ribcage. It’s a little strange, but he found a sensitive spot you never knew you had, so it’s not as if you don’t like it.
He may be a narcissistic pain, but like most arrogant people, the Sixth Doctor has some serious self-doubt issues. He’ll never admit it under any circumstances (well, maybe after he regenerates, but maybe not even then), but he honestly has no idea if what he’s doing is correct. It didn’t occur to you that he didn’t know what to do, so you never said anything, so his kisses are a bit… um, well, he refers to it them as experimental, so that’s what we’ll say. It’s not in his nature to be gentle about it, so he’s not, but other than that, he’s open to try anything. Oh, he puffs up and preens like a peacock when he realizes that he’s pleased you, but until that moment, he’s very unsure. He’s quick to learn, though, and he never forgets what you like.
The Seventh Doctor likes control (and he’s willing to play that up if that’s what you’re into, because who doesn’t like a bit of fun?), but with you, he prefers to give you the reins. Having everything under control is practically a talent in this body, and he likes it, but even he gets tired of it. Your kisses are like his therapy: he lets you take charge and he doesn’t have to steer everything or think so hard for a while. It’s a relief, so he makes it last. Long, drawn-out kisses are his only order of the day: otherwise, you can do what you want, and he happily complies.
The Eighth Doctor is the romantic one and he knows it, and he would be ashamed of himself if he couldn’t give you a properly amazing kiss. He always wraps his arms around you and pulls you very close to him, which is just another effect of that body’s lack of care for personal space. Oddly enough, he prefers to kiss while sitting down, which prompted the installation of a loveseat in the console room. Nobody complains about the very long 'sitting sessions.’ It was a surprise and his proper self decided to press you against a wall for a bout of making out, but nobody complained about that, either.
You wouldn’t think that the War Doctor would be all that keen on kissing, but he is. The only physical affection he really gets is from you, and he’ll take everything he can get. A war is on, after all, and he doesn’t know if he’ll ever see you again, so he makes every second he has with you count. He kisses reflect that: they’re desperate. He hugs you to him as tightly as he can without hurting you and refuses to let you go. He takes his time and makes every kiss last for as long as he can, because he knows that he might never get to again.
The Ninth Doctor isn’t exactly gentle. It’s not that he doesn’t try, because he does try (sometimes), but when he kisses you, it reminds him that you chose him, and that gets him a little fired up. So aside from those occasional pecks on the forehead that he’ll give you on his way by you, his kisses are rather intense. He’s all about kissing you in public- he likes to show you off, after all. But when it’s not in public, there’s almost a routine: He holds you by the hips or at the small of your back, starts with a softer kiss, than nips and kisses his way down your neck and then back up again for a much rougher kiss on the mouth. So it’s a bit repetitive, but that sort of repetition is nothing to scoff at. There’s something to be said for consistency.
The Tenth Doctor is rather enthusiastic. Not only are there kisses all the time, but they’re not half-baked kisses, either. Ten has an oral fixation, if you haven’t noticed, and kissing is his favorite activity, as long as it’s with you. And, well, there’s a lot of tongue involved. You know he likes to lick things, and that crosses over into basically anything else he does with his mouth. He licks, nibbles, and nips his way through kisses, always with one arm around your waist. And just because he’s using his mouth doesn’t mean that he isn’t talking. He talks. He mumbles and whispers and moans the whole time. What he says, well… it’s very complimentary.
The Eleventh Doctor has three main settings when it comes to kisses. The first setting is the “surprise!” kiss, which ranges everywhere from “Oh wow you gave me any idea you’re wonderful here let me kiss you without warning” to “Oh dear Rassilon I thought you were dead come here so I can kiss you silly just so that I’m sure you’re real” as well as “We just saved a planet let’s have celebratory kissing!” You get the idea. Setting number two is more along the lines of “C'mere you sexy thing” and those only happen in private, when you’re doing something he finds especially kiss-worthy. Setting number three, by far the most important, are what you might consider the real kisses. Nothing prompted them other than good timing. The Doctor, being his shy self, leans in, pecks you on the lips, pulls back, and then does it again, and again, until you finally reach back and give his hair a tug (which he absolutely adores), so that he’s forced to keep his lips on yours, where they belong.
The Twelfth Doctor has an attitude, and that goes for his kissing as well. He doesn’t kiss randomly; he gets that gleam in his eye and you know it’s coming. He’s firm about it. He wants you to know everything he has trouble saying, and he’s very good at communicating via kiss. His hands don’t stay still until the clench the fabric at your back and hang on for dear life, because those kisses aren’t quick business. He has a thing for nibbling your bottom lip, and surprisingly, this body is almost as insistent as the Tenth that there be gratuitous amounts of tongue involved. You usually end up on a chair so that you don’t fall over, and neither of you usually notice that you’ve gone from precariously swaying to sitting slantways. He likes to rest his head on your shoulder when the kissing finally dies down. He sometimes falls asleep like that, leaning against you with his fists bunched up in your clothes, so be sure the chair you two land on is comfortable.
*Well, flubbles, I hope everything I just wrote wasn’t ridiculous, because I’ve never kissed anyone before, so… what do I know, right?
Funnily enough, I was just thinking about making another kinetic typography video when the doctorwho tumblr announced their contest! I chose this quote for the simple fact that this was where I got hooked. I knew a little tiny bit about the show when I started watching it a few years ago, and this speech- about how the Doctor can feel the Earth revolving- caught my interest right away. It’s just the perfect lead in to the Doctor and who he is when we meet him in Rose.
Summary: With Jack the Ripper on the loose in the streets of modern London and more and more historical figures emerging from out of nowhere, the Doctor has to accept the help of a young girl named Ruby to prevent the world from sinking into chaos. Yet when he is faced with a temptation almost too great to resist it is up to Ruby to prove her worth. Set immediately after Hell Bent. Alternative S10. Part 1/12.
This set of fanfictions is a collaboration with @langernameohnebedeutung and I am so, so excited to finally start sharing it. It has been in the works for about two years now when @langernameohnebedeutung and I were discussion what we would want for the next companion (long before Pearl was announced and before S9 even aired) and we sort of ended up liking Ruby (our companion) so much that we decided it would be a waste not to write about her. I will cover the first few “episodes” and @langernameohnebedeutung will do the rest (not right now, but when the time comes because they follow a certain order). I sincerely hope you will enjoy the Doctor’s and Ruby’s adventures and because I’m really hyped to finally start posting these.
There’s also a reason I’m putting this in the Whouffaldi tag as well because, even though it’s not one of my many Whouffaldi AUs, things will get mentioned and things will happen and saying anything else would spoil the plot, so just I’m gonna zip it now.
Ruby decided to shrug off the odd encounter even though the way he spoke
and dressed made the little hairs on the back of her neck stand up.
Something about him just rubbed her the wrong way and yet she
couldn’t quite put her finger on it. Was it the velvet coat? The
strange tone in his voice? That messy bunch of hair on his head that
seemed not quite of this world? There was something that she was
missing, something absolutely not right at all. Then she suddenly
police box wasn’t there yester-,” Ruby said in turning, but once
her eyes were back on the blue box, the stranger was gone and the
street was utterly deserted. She couldn’t even hear footsteps from
any direction in which he might have gone.
how about... rate the doctors by who you should share a pizza with?
first doctor: pizza purist. only eats cheese pizza. despises pepperoni and sausage pizzas. yes absolutely, eat pizza with this curmudgeon
eighth doctor: likes stuffed crust and sausage pizzas but will order u whatever kind of pizza u want. separately. like, a WHOLE pizza. likes breadsticks a lot but will share and is civil about them unlike SOME angry owls i could mention. eat pizza with the eighth doctor but be aware he’s really bad at not getting his hands greasy
war doctor: pineapple on pizza 0/10
ninth doctor: probably eats it with bananas. i love him but…… 0/10
tenth doctor: orders none pizza with left beef unironically
eleventh doctor: dips it in custard. disgusting
twelfth doctor: hoards the breadsticks. is irate when pizza places dont have breadsticks. do i really have to say more
If you’re a fan of Doctor Who I recommend buying a copy of “Doctor Who Paper Dolls” illustrated by Ben Morris. There are 24 paper dolls (Doctors 1 to 12 but excluding the War Doctor), 11 companions (4 from the original era, 9 from the current era), and 1 villain (Missy).
I love the illustrations and would love to see followup book. A few suggested characters for a followup are: the War Doctor, the new female doctor, at least one companion for each Doctor from the original era, Tegan-Nysa-Adric, the 1970s UNIT characters, all the Masters, and figures of other villains like the Cybermen, Daleks and Weaping Angels. I can dream can’t I?
BTW - as of this writing the book is only $10.14 on Amazon.
