twelfth of never

youtube

Created and uploaded to YouTube by stigmq, this is an amazing video using a spoken word excerpt from some show I’m not familiar with (if you know please mention in the Notes and I’ll edit this post). At the 52-second mark you’ll instantly realize why the audio was a perfect choice for this Whouffaldi tribute.

Edit: Thanks to everyone who provided me with the info on the audio source: It’s “I Still Love Him” by Lana Del Rey.

Just a gentle reminder

The romance between the Doctor and Clara was real and canonical. This is not something that’s a matter of shipper wishful thinking. When you have the man who is ultimately responsible for every moment we see on screen, and the three actors charged with performing the Doctor and Clara, all referring to it as a romance (or variant statements thereof), and there’s dialogue and actions to support this, it’s canon by every measure.

It’s also canon that he loved Clara so much that he nearly destroyed time itself to save her (something The Husbands of River Song retroactively established that he considered doing for only one other person, his wife, by preparing to die on Trenzalore without having seen her off at Darillium). It is also canon that he allowed himself to have his memory wiped in order to protect her.

This is all canon. This isn’t me being a lovesick old fool saying “hey, you know if you squint hard enough you kinda see …” It’s verifiable. If someone put Whouffaldi on trial and you had to defend it in court, you could do so quite easily.

Series 10 is about to write a new chapter in the history. There have been rumours and spoilers and rumoured spoilers over the last day or so. We don’t know really what will happen over the 12 weeks. But the fact is even if there is not a single piece of respect paid to Clara Oswald, and what she and the Doctor shared together across not only two of his lives but, really, all of them thanks to the echoes, and even if Christmas breaks precedent and allows Twelve to enter the Time Stream without Clara being there - there is no erasing the Clara years from the show’s history and the amazing relationship that played out over 2 ½ seasons.

why did i spend time on this  a word cloud of every key word the twelfth doctor has said - from ‘the time of the doctor’ to ‘the return of doctor mysterio’ (including class because how could i not). long story short, his catchphrase is clara (the larger the word the more it was said)

long story in its entirety:

Imagine Harry having no idea what a birthday is or why every other kid seems to be so excited about this one day, but wondering why he doesn’t have one. Then getting the courage to ask Petunia about it one day, and after asking and begging she finally tells him when it is, “July 31st, but don’t expect anything. It’s nothing to celebrate like Dudley’s.” and he’s okay with it.

            In Chamber of Secrets, pg. 5, “It was his twelfth birthday, they’ve never given him a real present, let alone a cake.” Pg. 7. “Happy birthday to me…”  “No cards, no presents, and he would be spending the evening pretending not to exist.” He was content with out everything he had seen been given to Dudley, and other kids because he knew that day was his.

            In P.O.A, Pg. 5, says, Harry had never received a birthday card in his list. And in seven he was less fussy without food when they were on the run, pg. 287, “because he had suffered periods of near starvation at the Dursleys.” Like those flipping people….. Like a birthday is one thing, but let’s starve this kid who is our family….. I will hate those fictional characters forever, they were heinous. And that whole thing about the Dursleys’ being affected by Harry being a horcrux is ridiculous. Umbridge wore that necklace for however long after she bought it from Mundungus, but she was no more horrible that she always had been.

            But thankfully it gets better. Finally, in G.O.F pg 28, “And then on Harry’s birthday which the Dursleys had completely ignored he had received four superb birthday cakes, one each from Ron, Harry, Hagrid, and Sirius. (Can you imagine Sirius making Harry a cake, covered in flour, and oh so proud….. Like, yes… proud Godfather Sirius is one of my favorite Sirius’)

A follow-up tweet to this post by “marshcap” reads “Afraid of retweeting, aren’t we?” Because for those unlucky to get caught up in it there’s been a pretty intense firestorm of anti-Clara, anti-Jenna Coleman, and anti-Series 8 and 9 rhetoric on social media and media sites of late.

I can’t retweet because I am not on Twitter. But I can reblog. And I’m not afraid in the slightest (other than the possibility of losing a follower or two, but if you follow me, you know this is in part a Whouffaldi blog).

(I do draw the line at posting raunchy stuff, though. Not that type of a blog!)
