‘Goodness is not goodness that seeks advantage. Good is good in the final hour, in the deepest pit without hope, without witness, without reward. Virtue is only virtue in extremis. This is what he believes, and this is the reason above all that I love him, my husband, my madman in a box, my Doctor.’
For @evanora23, a first attempt at Thirteen and River, having dinner dessert. There is no way the Doctor has the patience to sit through a full meal, so their dinner date consists of hot chocolate and crêpes.
do you ever wonder if a lot of the Clara Oswald and River Song hatred comes from the fact that we’re basically conditioned to think badly of confident women who know that they’re awesome/clever/sexy and 120% own it?
like, how much of it is a subconscious result of not being used to female characters who unabashedly love themselves who are still sympathetic characters/good people, if also obviously flawed in some ways too?
because honestly, they’re so important for teaching us that there’s no shame in loving ourselves like that too
