Take my memories. But I hope you’ve got a big appetite because I’ve lived a long life and I’ve seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told and knowledge that must never be spoken.

I CAN’T. I CRY. 

Hurrah! I managed to draw that tricky eye. :)

Didn’t do this one with my usual technique, so it’s not as exact as my portraits are normally. Hmmmmm.

If you’re wondering, this is one of Matt’s wonderful expressions when Clara is telling him she’s not a ghost or a stand in (at the end of The Rings of Akhaten). There’s more comedy in Matt’s ACTUAL expression, but, like I said, less exact than usual.

The most important leaf in human history.  It’s full of stories. Full of history. And full of a future that never got lived. Days that should’ve been that never were… passed on to me. This leaf isn’t just the past, it’s a whole future that never happened.

Okay then, that’s what I’ll do. I will tell you a story. Can you hear them? All these people who lived in terror of you and your judgement. All these people who’s ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves to you. Can you hear them singing? Oh, you like to think you’re a god. But you’re not a god. You’re just a parasite, eat now with jealousy and envy and longing for the lives of others. You feed on them. On the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow, so… So … come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you’ve got a big appetite. Because I’ve lived a long life. And I have seen a few things.

“Okay then. That’s what I’ll do. I will tell you a story.
Can you hear them? All these people who lived in terror of you and your judgment. All these people whose ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves to you. Can you hear them singing?

You are unique in the universe.... Getting rid of that existence isn't a sacrifice. It is a waste.

“The soul’s made of stories, not atoms. Everything that ever happened to us. People we love, people we lost. People we found again against all the odds.”

 “It’s not a god. It’ll feed on your soul, but that doesn’t make it a god. It is a vampire, and you don’t need to give yourself to it. Hey, do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many, many millions of years ago, in the heart of a far away star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings. Until eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one Merry Gejelh. And there will never be another. Getting rid of that existence isn’t a sacrifice. It is a waste. “

~11th Doctor portrayed by Matt Smith.
