1x09 - The Empty Child
YES GOOD BC THIS IS MY FAV RPF HEADCANON
Is this long enough for a read more? idk, it feels long. Maybe because I only do meta-y posts once in a blue moon. So yeah. Doctor Who thoughts under the cut.
Not Moffat friendly, as per usual. Don’t click if you’re not into that sort of thing.
OTP: Doctor/Rose (especially Eight or Nine or Ten), Eight/Charley
OT3: Doctor/Rose/Jack (either Nine or Ten)
NOTP: Doctor/Amy, Doctor/River, Eleven with anyone really because he was a mess
OTP: Sherlock/Joan, Marcus/Joan maybe?
OTF: Sherlock/Joan (I CAN LIKE IT AS BOTH A BROTP AND AN OTP OK)
OT3: Sherlock/Joan/Sass? Maybe Sherlock/Joan/Moriarty but I’d feel sort of dirty about it, and maybe not in the fun way, lol.
NOTP: Please, she’s Joan Watson. She can do whoever she wants and I’ll support her, lol.
OTP: WILL/PROPER MEDICAL CARE. Will/Alana? But maybe not anymore because so much has happened and they kind of make me sad? I know the character has a wife in the books eventually, so maybe the hypothetical wife? Idk…
OTF: Will/Winston the dog
OT3: Will/proper medical care/proper mental healthcare
NOTP: Will/Hannibal. I CANNOT. I know some people like that sort of thing but I just can’t do it. Nope.
Yeah. Good luck, Day of the Doctor.
TASHA: (to Clara) I have confidential matters to discuss with the Doctor. Would you excuse us?
DOCTOR: Anything you have to say to me, you can say in front of Clara. Well, quite a lot of it. Probably about half. Maybe a smidge under. Actually, Clara, would you mind waiting out here, please?
Yes. This is a thing called character development.
Still the most amazing opening credits ever.
"… it’s not just history. It’s me, I make it happen."
#THIS IS WHY THE 50TH OFFENDS ME #because ”the doctor would never push the button” YES HE FUCKING WOULD #IF IT CAME DOWN TO IT #if it came down to killing a species or city or country or even A FUCKING PLANET #in order to SAVE HISTORY AND HUMANITY AND THE WHOLE UNIVERSE#HE WOULD FUCKING DO IT #don’t tell me that he wouldn’t because we know for a fact that he does it here and in other times and places #and it’s not a bad thing!!!!! #it doesn’t make him evil or stupid for not figuring out a loophole!!! #it makes him STRONG #a leader has to make the tough calls that sometimes costs innocent lives because that’s what’s best for the mission #the mission is what matters (/Buffy) #so don’t tell me that the Doctor would never destroy his planet to save the universe #because here he destroys pompeii to save history #and he takes on that burden of all the lives lost because he MUST #because he’s the ONLY ONE strong enough to shoulder that burden #and don’t tell me dw50 that he’s not that kind of person #because THIS kind of person - the one that destroys pompeii? #THIS person is a hell of a lot stronger and braver than the one who just magically-and-with-no-legitimate-plot-continuity-or-development #uses his ~cleverness~ to save his planet #you want to rewrite the past in order to bring gallifrey back and add a new plot dynamic to the show FINE #but don’t do it in a way that DESTROYS all of his AMAZING character development #don’t do the doctor that disservice #because the fact that he IS capable of putting the needs of the many over the needs of the few is what makes him so special #and the fact that he makes all these heartbreaking decisions and still manages to soldier on is what makes him phenomenal #and the fact that he will continue to make these impossible decisions again and again for the good of the universe even though it tears him apart? #THAT’S what makes him the Doctor (via winterinthetardis)
GOD BLESS YOU, NILI. GOD BLESS YOU.
