It’s not fair! Clara, it’s just not fair! Why can’t I just lose! But i can remember, Clara. You don’t understand. I can remember it all. Every time. And you’ll still be gone.Whatever I do, you still won’t be there…
I imagine Elsewhere treating Taken students much as the American Navy speaks of the 52 submarines lost in WWII as being not sunk, but on “Eternal Patrol”, and always, sadly, waiting for the ships to return even though they know they won’t.
The bell tolls five times. All of the activities pause. Classes stop. The cafeteria falls quiet. Some students choose to stand, others kneel or sit. No one speaks.
The speakers crack to life, rarely used but twice a year. They were from an era when the world trembled not at the magic of Fae but the fear of nuclear fire of man. Now they serve a better role, if a sad one.
“Good morning, Elsewhere. There are currently two-hundred and seventeen students listed as Indefinitely Tardy. As winter break is approaching, all Indefinitely Tardy students are forgiven their tardiness and welcomed back to class. Your fellow students miss you.”
Seconds stretch and ache in the silence that follows. There’s a keenly painful moment of impossible hope in those few held breaths afterwards. Maybe this year, but no one really believes it. The bell tolls again, and life on Elsewhere resumes, if a bit solemn for the rest of the day.
Sometimes someone comes back to class. Sometimes they disappeared that year- sometimes they disappeared years ago. But they’re welcomed home. And every year, Elsewhere speakers crack to life, echoing over campus and the edge of The Trees, welcoming its wayward students home.
Doctor who isn´t perfect but it has some representation. What makes this little amount of representation so important is that it´s a family show. A lots of kids watch doctor who. Although some characters are less explicit than others at least the show doesn´t pretend the whole universe is heterosexual.
1) Captain Jack Harkness (omnisexual)
He even kissed THE MAIN CHARACTER wich is a big deal for tv at the time it was aired .
2) Ianto Jones (bisexual) Doctor who/Torchwood A BISEXUAL CHARACTER people HE WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH A WOMAN AND AFTER SHE DIED HE FELT IN LOVE WITH JACK. this was in Torchwood series but i think its important.
Captain Jack and Ianto had an openly relationship
3) May and Alice Cassini ( a married old lesbian couple)
4) Sky Silvestry (lesbian) she talks about her wife with the tenth doctor. episode: Midnight
5) Alonso Frame
The Doctor presented this character to Captain Jack and it´s implicit that he’s gay or bisexual.
6) Madame Vastra and Jenny Flint (lesbian married couple)
this interspecies kiss was between two canon lesbian couple and it wasnt even a real kiss because they did it to survive but people went mad because it is a kid´s show. fuck those people. 7) River Song (omnisexual)
she mentioned she married with women and men.
8) Clara Oswald (bisexual) we´ve seen her with a boyfriend and her crush with the doctor but she also often made comentaries about she kissing Jane Austen or liking girls. EVEN IF a PERSON NEVER KISSED A SAME SEX PERSON OR LIKES ONLY ONE SAME SEX PERSON THAT MAKES THEM BISEXUAL PEOPLE so yes, she is.
9) The Doctor (omnisexual and none binary)
MAIN CHARACTER, his sexuality was always a mistery but now we know for sure
and as the next doctor is a women and his whole race is none binary, its confirmed he´s too.
they are inocent kisses but being such an old and important character in british culture its really important. He´s a role model for many little children.
10) The Master/Missy (omnisexual and none binary)
11) some romans in the episode the eaters of light
All of them bisexuals and one was gay
He was in love with a black man and wanted to marry him but it wasnt legal at the time.
gay married Anglican marine couple from A man goes to war episode
14) Heather (Lesbian)
Doctor´s companion love interest. 15) Bill Potts (lesbian)
She isnt just an openly lesbian who happens to be a POC companion but also she is so proud and keeps saying she´s gay in every episode. i love her. She´s so real. She´s the represantion we deserve.
BILL POTTS AND HEATHER
A LESBIAN LOVE STORY AS THE PRINCIPAL ARC. THEIR LESBIAN LOVE SAVED THE DAY. AND THEY KISSED AND BECAME INMORTAL GIRLFRIENDS. THIS IS THE REPRESENTATION WE DESERVE. THEIR LOVE STORY IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE THEM.
After seeing season 10 fiinale with two inmortal girlfriends traveling trought space together i have so many high expectatives for next seasons and lgbt representation.
Mi hai abbracciata solo quando mi hai visto piangere, mi hai chiesto cosa non andava solo quando mi hai vista a pezzi, quando ormai era troppo tardi. Quanti abbracci mancati, quante volte non hai capito, quante volte mi hai perso prima di perdermi davvero.
Bill and Heather get reunited and travel with the doctor as super cute gfs. We get to watch them flirting and being shy and finally starting dating, and when they leave it’s because they’re off to get married and no-one dies ever.
