From the beginning, she was impossible. The Impossible Girl. I met her in the Dalek Asylum. Never saw her face, and she died. I met her again in Victorian London, and she died. Saved my life both times, by giving her own. But now she’s back and we’re running together, and she’s perfect. Perfect in every way for me. Except she can’t remember that we ever met. Clara. My Clara. Always brave, always funny, always exactly what I need. Perfect. Too perfect. Get used to not knowing. I thought I never would. I was wrong. I know who Clara Oswald is. I know how she came to be in my life, and I know what she will always mean. I found out the day we went to Trenzalore. 

 One day you meet the Doctor. And of course, it’s the best day ever. It’s just the best day of your life. Because, because he’s brilliant, and he’s funny, and mad, and best of all, he really needs you. The trick is, don’t fall in love. I do that trick quite a lot, sometimes twice a day. And once you start running, you start to forget, slowly. After a while, you just stop asking. Who are you? Where are you from? What set you on your way and where are you going? Oh, and what is your name? You get used to not knowing. I thought I never would. I was wrong. I know who he is. I know how he began and I know where he’s going. I know the truth about the Doctor and his greatest secret. The day we went to Trenzalore.

I have an idea about why Twelve and Nine are so much more bleak and harsh than the majority of the other incarnations of the Doctor. 

I believe it’s because they regenerated right after mayor, life-changing events, in these cases, the Time War and the Siege of Trenzalore. I think the Doctor, as he regenerated, was at least partially regretful for what he had done, and he wondered if maybe there could have been another solution, or a way to avoid this situation altogether.

This is shown in the next incarnation, where he constantly doubts his true “goodness”. He wonders it everything was his fault. This causes him to act harsher and crueler, in an attempt to keep others from getting close to him, lest he hurt them too.

I think the darker regenerations are both made to protect the Doctor and as a penance to himself, in reaction to the things he regrets.

Spun  15/15  (a fic preview)


Twelve hours later, Clara emerged from her room. She’d made a decision and it hadn’t been easy. She’d mulled over her choices for hours, but ultimately, she felt she’d made the right one.


Clara chose the Doctor


Of course she chose him, it had always been him.  Clara loved the Doctor, had been in love with him for years.  She’d allowed her soul to be pulled apart and scattered all over his time stream. While she’d been ultimately unsuccessful, she’d tried to stay with him on Trenzalore – abandoning her family, her world, all of her responsibilities to live with him. Die with him. Now, Clara wanted to spend her life with him. Only this time, he wouldn’t be sending her home.
Clara was relieved to have made a decision, but she had to tell Malcolm. It would be awful, painful, and she dreaded it. But it still had to be done…


12


As she walked down one of the labyrinthine hallways in the TARDIS, she found Malcolm shouting obscenities into his phone. The Doctor must have boosted the signal with the sonic screwdriver. When he saw her, he straightened, meeting her eyes. Clara closed the distance between them, determined to have a talk with him as soon as possible. She wanted to make a clean break, keep it painless as possible.  


“Fuckity bye,” he muttered into the receiver, before hitting a button, and sliding it into the pocket of his borrowed jacket. “Morning, sweetheart.”


Suddenly, she was at a loss for words, staring up at him.

We don’t actually know how Clara survived when the Great Intelligence got ripped apart, do we? All we know is that she lived and the proof of that is that River was mentally linked with her and River says “Spoilers” since you know, she’s part of the database of the biggest library in the universe in the future and I doubt the Doctor visited that Library to delete its knowledge about him.

But part of me is wondering–could someone be monitoring paradoxes? I mean, to my understanding, that’s a Time Lord thing to do, and they’re still technically gone. But…but what if Missy has something to do with preserving Clara’s life, making sure that she lived in order to spur the Doctor’s decision to save Gallifrey, in order to end up on Trenzalore with the Doctor in order to prolong the Doctor’s life? I don’t know how that would work, but maybe maybe maybe

anonymous asked:

[1/2] The Eleventh Doctor blinked down at his wrinkled hands as they worked steadily to whittle the wooden toy given to his care by one of Christmas' children. He was a bit slower at it these days, hands were getting weak in his old age. How long had he been here on Trenzalore now? 700 years? 800? It was a little foggy. Another lifetime, at least. A chill draught stirred the many pictures on his wall that the children had drawn of his life. Hadn't he been trapped in a child's drawing once?

[2/2] Yes, when he was all angles and hedgehog hair and the flash of converse. His mind drifted in remembrance… angles pressing comfortingly into his body, hedgehog hair tickling his neck and cheek, the flash of converse being kicked unceremoniously from the bed. Eleven sighed gustily, pushing himself up on to his feet with the help of his cane. “C'mon, Handles.” He murmured. “Allons-y.”

anonymous asked:

what are your thoughts on series 8 then? i actually thought they were way better than series 6 and 7 :o and i quite enjoyed them again. probably because i love capaldi as an actor

anything is better than s6 also known as the clusterfuck, s7 was just generally meh. capaldi is good in his role but so much about the character didn’t make sense. why is he angry? NO ONE KNOWS. because reasons… like eleven saved precious maypole babies for starters and the christmas town in trenzalore lol where’s the logic. his constant insults towards clara annoyed me a lot. they had some nice moments and i think peter and jenna work well as a team just not with scripts they were getting. clara was great for the most of the season. but everything after kill the moon was just??? after that speech she gave, about how wrong the doctor was, and then in next episode ‘JK I CHANGED MY MIND let’s go!!!’. then the show made her look like a liar (re: towards danny pink). don’t even get me started on danny and how BADLY MOFFAT TREATED HIS CHARACTER, i’m still very angry. 

Damnit Capaldi! I was doing so well until you came along....

So I’ve already watched all 8 seasons of the new Doctor Who once already & now I’ve been rewatching all the seasons…

When I watched the first time I was sobbing when 9 became 10. I was sobbing when Rose was sucked into the parallel universe & when the 10th Doctor burned a sun to say goodbye to Rose. I sobbed when the 10th Doctor did his farewell tour and saw his Rose again before she ever met the 9th Doctor. I sobbed when the 11th lost Amy & Rory. I sobbed when 11 was dying at Trenzalore. I cried when Clara doubted if the 12th Doctor was really the same Doctor & then 11 had to call from Trenzalore, from Clara’s past… I lost it. I was sobbing.


This time, I made it past the 9th Doctor’s regeneration without crying, I made it past Rose & The 10th Doctor’s goodbye. I didn’t cry when 10 was on his farewell tour. I kept it together when Amy & Rory were sent back to the past by the Weeping Angels… And I didn’t cry when 11 was dying on Trenzalore…

But 12… Capaldi & Smith just had to go and make me sob… Clara was going to leave The Doctor but then… but THEN stupid 11 had to call Clara from the past and beg her to help the man he became. And THEN stupid 12 had to ask if Clara truly could no longer see him anymore now that he has a new face… I lost it… I was sobbing like a baby… Those stupid faces…

Okay. Here and no I'm just completely disagree. The master have always been the worst until now. What ever the regeneration. Okay for anti hero sometimes. Not always. But if the Valeyard come after the Moffat era (if he show up one day) you'll know if your problem if about Moffat, or about the fact the serie become darker. (Well. I guess you'll know. Unless you don't like the next show runner neither)

Eleven is the Valeyard if you ask me. It seems perfectly reasonable to me to say that Eleven left Trenzalore for a little bit in order to go do the Valeyard things. I liked the Valeyard story better than most of Moffat’s work, though.

Either way though, Eleven is guilty of all the same crimes that Missy is.

Genocide? Check.

Turning humans into killing machines or weapons? Check.

Sexual assault? Check.

They’ve both committed the same evils.

But no, I definitely dislike Moffat for a number of things, but the dark and gritty aspect is just a small portion of it.

I honestly don’t know what to think about the next showrunner. If it’s Gatiss, I’ll probably just stop watching (at least, stop watching regularly). If it’s somebody else, well, we’ll see.

replied to your post

“gr8, moffat said ‘dr who fancies clara but he wants to hide it’ and…”

Well, he said the same about 11 and Clara. I was hoping things would change with 12. I honestly don’t see the point of 12 ‘fancying’ Clara. You would think 1,000 years on Trenzalore would have brought the Doctor to his senses and killed that 'crush’.

i honestly find miraculous they remembered her, she’d been travelling with them for…… 2 years then maybe?

i just think, either moffat doesn’t know how exploit relationships that are not romantic and doesnt want to learn either, or they are pushing him to do commercial drama, both of them pretty likely tbh

Impossibly...Gone?

Odd thought to have now. Though not something I haven’t questioned before.


Was Clara ever the Impossible Girl anymore?


She was because the 11th Doctor died on Trenzalore and she entered his timestream and met the Doctors past incarnations thus paradoxically setting up how the 11th Doctor met her. A bit odd and a type of paradox I dislike but suitably Who-ish. 


But the timeline was seemingly changed as she helped convince Gallifrey to give the Doctor a new life (or set of lives I’m not actually clear on that) and so the 11th Doctor “fell” but instead of dying for good regenerated into his new 12th form.


But now this means the Doctors timeline couldn’t have been entered by Clara. And while I initially figured it might just be ignored for sake of keeping Clara as the current companion . I started to realize. I don’t think the 12th Doctor ever called her the Impossible Girl. 


It makes me wonder if the Doctor has forgotten how he met her. Granted it had to have happened still to some extent but only because Vastra and Jenny remember one of Clara’s “echos”.
