Asami running towards Korra and hugging her for the first time in 3 years and she just burst crying bc Korra after all those years she still looks sad and depressed.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

↳ "I’m so scared, and I want to know what it’s like to be seventeen, or twenty-five, you know? But what if we can get through this? And there’s life on the other side? If there is, I want to be here, with you. This is how I wanna live. And if all this isn’t here, and you don’t survive, then I don’t wanna live at all. "

These are the kinds of kids that are going to change the world.
I’m definitely on the Doctor’s side.
I know why Clara felt the way she did and she had the right to be angry, the Doctor wasn’t delicate at all. He was actually kind of a jerk and Clara has the right to take whatever choice she feels is best for her, BUT and this is a big but, she should know the Doctor by now right? She should know that “he always has her back” and yet, she’s inconsistent.
Sometimes she acts like she’s the only one who understands him, and other times it’s like she doesn’t know him at all…
He’s the same man, he’s not heartless, he’s not doing things differently, he is still trying to keep everyone alive, but he’s not dreaming anymore, he’s realistic and more transparent. Yet Clara doesn’t seem to be able to consolidate her knowledge.
It was the same with Mummy on the Orient Express. She separates her experiences with Twelve and Eleven and I don’t like it. Rose understood both her Doctors, River understood her Doctors, Sarah Jane understood her Doctors, it’s Clara who has trouble seeing him when it clashes with her idea of him.
I love Clara, she’s actually my favourite companion, but she’s got some inconsistencies. I don’t know, what do you guys think?
Maybe the Doctor isn’t as dark as I make him out to be. Maybe I’ve been using the wrong words. Realistic, I like that. He’s not dreaming. He’s transparent.
That makes so much more sense. I still believe the mask is gone. But it’s gone because the Doctor doesn’t really know who he is, right?
I’m a bit bothered by the passivity that seems to permeate discussions of recent events of Doctor Who. Yes, they show that the Doctor can be dangerous for his companions.
But he didn’t turn Clara into a weapon, or even a soldier. Clara made herself, in Danny’s word, into an officer.
"But we saved the world, right? So… on balance…"
Clara took on his role. Not the Eleventh Doctor’s, but clearly the Twelfth’s, with none of the lightness of the former and all of the abrasiveness of the latter.
The scene in the flat turns the Doctor/companion dynamic on its head. It’s the Doctor who warns Clara to behave in a way which isn’t alarming and it’s Clara who fails only seconds later. She’s losing her hold on that bit of empathy which she needs to understand what she can say around people who are not used to this kind of life.
Later her first instincts is to lie to people to give them hope, fully knowing that at least some of them would probably die. There’s no gentle approach to make people do what she wants, it is “I am the one chance you’ve got of staying alive” and “you wanna walk, walk”. We’ve seen her in command before, but this is a new, darker tone.
Clara has seen two peole die in front of her and she drops them from her thoughts moments later. She adopted the Doctor’s approach to death instinctively, when she finds herself in his role. And so the woman who changed the world with just the power of her tears does no longer have the time to stop and grieve.
Danny saw the Doctor as an officer and saw himself in Clara, cast her in the role of a soldier. But if she ever was that, she’s grown out of that role. Even in the moment where she should have been in her element, keeping Rigsy from needlessly sacrificing his life, her words do not speak of compassion. They are merciless with regards to just how futile this is. They end on a call to arms. And she will defeat the enemy.
She truly wasn’t exceptional at being the Doctor just because she was good. It wasn’t only the cleverness and how she saved Rigsy’s life and drew on his talents. She was exceptional because she was just as flawed as the Doctor. Every step of the way. Lies, arrogance, and “people with guns to their head cannot mourn” are embraced without a look back.
Does Clara realise it in that moment? Or has she yet to notice that she is losing her grasp on what it means to be good, in the way that Clara Oswald is good?
This is beautifully written. I just want to add a few things and you are all free to ignore me because this is purely my theory/thoughts but here goes. I truly feel this new Doctor, this man who has no compassion or thoughts about others and their emotions, is a bad match for Clara.
Well, obviously we can see that. What I’m trying to say is that the Eleventh brought out the compassion, love, kindness, and courage in Clara that she didn’t realize she possessed or was to afraid to confront. He made her excited about so many things with their adventures.
When Eleven “died”, she didn’t believe this new man, the Twelfth, to be the Doctor but he is the Doctor. The Doctor we have only gotten glimpses of through the bad jokes and silly movements and ramblings of a raggedy man.
Here’s the thing though. The reason why the Doctor has always acted silly is so he could distract himself from thinking about the horrible things he has done or really the guilt he holds inside himself for things he has wrongly done in the past. This Doctor, on the other hand, does not hold that ability to laugh and play. He doesn’t have that cover, that mask. The mask has fallen and this Doctor is left completely naked for everyone to see his true self.
Clara, brave and loyal as she is, stays with him because he is the Doctor and she sees that because of the words of friends and Eleven. Eleven warned her this new man would be scared and different.
But here’s the kicker, Nine, Ten, and Eleven worked so hard to keep people from thinking the way they do, from being the type of people they were, but Twelve doesn’t. And it’s his attitude, his personality, that influences her and she is starting to change to fit into his life, to fit his role of the Doctor and her role of the Companion.
And so she begins to act just like him, most likely unconsciously and all the somewhat positive influence Eleven had on her soon fades away.
Have you noticed that? Have you noticed how darker this is becoming? How much has changed in Clara?
It’s like Eleven no longer exists. With Ten we had glimpses of Nine, fading memories that stuck with him and showed during his bad times. With Eleven, Ten was somehow still a part of him as he goofed around and tried to save everyone around him, making them happy with his silly ramblings but Twelve shows no signs of any of the previous Doctors. Perhaps the older ones but even then it’s so faint.
And it’s scary! That’s completely frightening! Because that humor that all the companions relied on to feel safe is shattered and gone.
The Eleventh gave us so much hope even during his darkest times but the Twelfth? He gives us sweet nothings and sometimes not even that.
Clara relied on that you know. When Eleven existed she relied on his humor just like the others. I just feel like the Twelfth is leaving her on her own. Like they are together as a team but it’s every man/woman for themselves.
And Clara is beginning to adopt that logic.
BUT! maybe I’m wrong, maybe there is some of Eleven in there. The Doctor struggles, you can see it. He struggles to understand if he was/is a good man. He sees his wrongs and tries to make them right even when he does mess up with Clara. He still cares for her and fights to keep her safe and with him and maybe it’s completely selfish but he needs her—
So that’s not Eleven. I’m wrong.
Eleven would push her away to keep her safe.
UGH! I’m comparing Doctors and I don’t mean to and I’m also digressing.
The point is, the real Doctor is not safe for any companion. Especially those who wish to be with his as strongly as Clara does. When you’re with a mad man for so long, you will adopt his methods, his way of thinking, his personality and maybe his attitude.
Being with the Doctor, with this Doctor, as much fun as it could be to go on adventures…it’s also suicide.
Ergo, the Doctor is bad for Clara.
And we are back to the addiction.

i was you today, i was the doctor. and apparently — i was quite good at it.
Something is obviously very wrong here.
So many people have died this season. So many were not saved by the Doctor.
It really makes me wonder where they are going with his character development.
