Hello everybody! I'm Tawny, and this is going to be a multi-fandom blog, from
cartoons like Lok to TV shows like BSG and GoT and Sherlock and classic novels like Anne of Green Gables and more, such as history!!! There's gonna be something here for everyone! ;)
Fandoms: Ice Age, Doctor Who, Community, Rise of the Guardians, TASM, Legend of Korra/Avatar the Last Airbender, Young Justice, How to Train Your Dragon, OUATIW, Casson Family series, Sherlock etc.
Also, whilst this is my personal/fandom blog, it functions as a writing blog of sorts since I reblog so many writing tips and helps.
I am also a Christian, so expect to see bible verse and discussions on the Christian life/life lived through a Christian lenses (which most of my meta comes from - especially for Ice Age)
I'd also like to say that I post a LOT of Ice Age posts on this blog (ranging from meta to fic to speculation to general discussion), and get a lot of Ice Age anons nowadays, so please be aware of that before you click the follow button!
Addendum: I also write A LOT (tis my favourite thing) so don't be afraid to send me a request :) However, please be patient with me since I often get many!
Ships: Manny/Diego (bromance/BrOTP), Doctor/River (Eleven/River) Jeff/Annie (OTP) (OTP), Amy/Rory (OTP) Manny/Ellie (OTP) Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker (OTP) Wally West/Artemis Crock (OTP) Korra/Tarrlok (OTP) Bolin/Korra (OTP) Katara/Aang (OTP) Queen Tara/Ronin (OTP) and others.
Don't be afraid to send me an ask if you want me to write a pairing!
The Doctor’s Wife.
Set in pocket universe.
"Somewhere close by there are lots and lots of Time Lords." - Eleven in TDW
Gallifrey is in a pocket universe.
Am I hearing something incorrectly?
So, I have held on to this brilliant post for ages - what an observation! And, of course, I don’t think at all that this is a coincidence.
Remember when I drew this parallel?
Madge, who saves a whole forest in her head, vs. River, who saves a metaphorical forest in her head. (Read the whole theory here.)
Madge is lured in this forest by a king and a queen (i.e., a lord and a lady), which I am pretty sure is a Timelord metaphor…
And there is more! For instance Hide, where the time traveller is being harassed in her pocket-universe forest:
No way this is all coincidence. The only question is: are the Timelords/Gallifrey with River in the Library, or is the Library itself a metaphor for something else (read my confusion post here)?
oh my gosh!!!!
Stan Lee (via writingquotes)
The thing about Clara is that she projects a very specific image, she chooses who she wants to be. This is actually the first time that we see this from her perspective, when she is confronted with the half-face man, she reflects back and picks a behaviour to emulate, a person who won’t be intimidated by idle threats (a person who wasn’t intimidated by her idle threats, that is).
But in a scenario where she is in control, there isn’t much pressure to develop. For the most part, she knows who she wants to be and she knows how to get there. Until now, we’ve seen some of these ideals become a more natural part of her - she certainly gained more natural confidence during series 7 and wasn’t scared as easily as before. But there’s only so far you can go.
Deep Breath solved this “problem”, by putting her in a scenario where she’s out of her depth. The Doctor just changed, he doesn’t appear to be the man she remembered, she’s stuck in a time period that is not her own, she’s critically “assessed” by Vastra and ultimately thrown into a life-threatening adventure in which the Doctor may not have her back.
So of course it brings out a different side of her, because this is Clara pushed to her breaking point. And this Clara is placed next to a Doctor who easily perceives her flaws - small and big - who does not view her as “merely” sweet-natured and clever. She might not quite see him till that final scene, but he sees her and he’s not glossing things over.
But all of this very much builds on the Clara who put up a brave fascade when she was scared, who attempted to push Emma into bringing back the Doctor from the pocket universe even though Emma did no longer have the strength, who set the rules in her travels with the Eleventh Doctor, from making him pick her up at specific times to defining the boundaries of their relationship. She could make the Doctor play her boyfriend, insist on negotiation with the ice warrior or stop the Doctor from committing genocide. She could confront the Old God, command a platoon, save the Doctor from certain destruction - the sky was the limit, really.
Series 8 seems to go the route of showing us what she’s like and how she can develop when she has problems keeping up that control. And if Deep Breath is anything to go by, I’m so looking forward to that.
