Okay, seeing as it is canon that Time Lords literally don’t have the same concepts about gender as we do and since they can change gender and/or biological sex at any time and their sexual/romantic partners go through the same, how is it possible for any of them to be straight like? Yes, I’m literally implying that Time Lords are a race of pansexual aliens.
Even though I don’t actually headcanon it, I can kind of see Ravenclaws messing with time turners and past life theory, having it go wrong and accidentally turning themselves into the first time lords. In the process, their personality shatter into pieces, and thats all their different regenerations that a time lord gets.
In The Wedding of River Song, River says, “I’ve been sending out a message. A distress call. Outside the bubble of our time, the universe is still turning, and I’ve sent a message everywhere. To the future and the past, the beginning and the end of everything. The Doctor is dying. Please, please help.”
Then in Time of the Doctor, after the Doctors save Gallifrey, the Time Lords answer the message, but thanks to the timeline craziness they’re unsure where it came from, so they project their reply
on a repeating cycle through all of time and space via the rifts created by the TARDIS. “Doctor who?”
When Clara answers the message, she just says they should help him. “His name, his name is the Doctor … and if you love him, and you should, help him. Help him.” The Time Lords indeed give him a massive burst of regeneration energy, but it’s thanks to River’s message about the Doctor dying that they knew what kind of help he needed.
okay but given that we know that Gallifrey doesn’t give a shit about gender, and that the Master (up until Missy) has been a misogynist since their first appearance, we have to conclude that this was something he learned somewhere else, probably not long after he left Gallifrey for the first time
which makes me think it must have been really funny when he rocked back up to Gallifrey at any point after that
imagine, the Master with a bunch of Time Lords, spinning some big ass plan to the Council or something, and he makes some of his dumbass gross sexist comments
can you imagine how BEWILDERED they would all be
can you imagine the talk in the capitol later
“ok so I know this Master guy is meant to be a bad egg and totally off his nut but APPARENTLY he thinks that gender can like, define superiority?? apparently he thinks men are kinda better than women??”
“how the hell can that be true, no one is that idiotic”
“yeah but if it isn’t true, how would anyone even think of this idea in order to spin it as a lie - oh Rassilon it must be true”
“what the hell would he do with my cousin, they change every other day, would he only respect them three days out of the week??”
“I dunno, honestly, the guy is clearly out of his fucking mind”
like, okay, they know all the mass murder and other shit he’s been doing is bad, but honestly as far as they’re concerned his weird sexism is the strongest contender for his insanity, probably
Lately, I’ve been working with wood for some reason. And this week I made this coffee table. (or rather, I made the top. I don’t have the tools or carpentry skills to build the rest.) I used gold leaf…which looks cool but is not fun to play with. The design is inspired by the Doctor’s cradle, obviously.
