If Rose can be selfish, then her finest moments will come when she’s selfless. If Martha keeps quiet, then her moments of revelation – like her goodbye to the Doctor in Last of the Time Lords, or stuck with Milo and Cheen in Gridlock – make her fly. Donna is magnificently self-centred – not selfish, but she pivots everything around herself, as we all do – so when she opens up and hears the Ood song, or begs for Caecilius’ family to be saved, then she’s wonderful.
high fantasy au? au where warlock and vampire play d&d?? just plain crack au? we just don’t know
ok just imagine, simon running weekly d&d sessions for the entire gang at magnus’ (bc what these two have is a beautiful friendship in the making??). and after another game night, and one too many sangrias, simon – being ‘extremely persuasive’ – convinces magnus to portal him to an alternate dimension of faraway lands that is infested with mystical beasts & things. it works (r.i.p. portal lore) and now simon is in this high fantasy universe that is not unlike the one he’s been homebrewing for months now. awesome!
..if not for the fact that now simon’s in the universe of actual dungeons… and actual dragons.
We all change when you think about it. We’re all different people, all through our lives…and that’s okay. That’s good. You’ve gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be.
Do you know like we were saying, about the Earth revolving? It’s like when you’re a kid, the first time they tell you that the world is turning and you just can’t quite believe it ‘cause everything looks like it’s standing still. I can feel it… the turn of the Earth.
