(Quote taken from a fan edit by @freespriritfly04044, I think, as I want to start collecting them for this pairing… #KyloRey)

If this isn’t a good partial summary of the appeal/story of KyloRey, then I don’t know what is, really… (I’m not really interested in Elizabeth Gilbert – and the concept of a soulmate to me can be pretty cheesily written – but there were parts to the full quote I thought were good and relevant.)

Whouffaldi: “Duty of Care” or Courtly Love?

   In medieval literature there is this tradition of Courtly Love. Knights who swear their troth to fair ladies (or monarchs). To pledge one’s troth was to make a vow of loyalty and faithfulness. Not unlike a “Duty of Care”.  

    I think this trope applies perfectly to Twelve and Clara. Capaldi said that the Doctor has this sense of debt to Clara (or duty of care), because of what she did as “The impossible girl”. 

And hey, Clara and Twelve were juxtaposed to Robin Hood and Maid Marion (a courtly/ chivalric love story).
 

According to wikipedia, “ courtly love was an experience between erotic desire and spiritual attainment that now seems contradictory as “a love at once illicit and morally elevating, passionate and disciplined, humiliating and exalting, human and transcendent”.[4]

I think that works pretty damn well for Twelve x Clara. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courtly_love

And also…. “love is not an emotion, love is a promise”. A duty of care, a pledge of troth. 


One of my favourite quotes.

Somebody please make a KyloRey fan edit to this if it hasn’t been done already. Particularly in regards to the climactic battle.
