"… 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.
❝ Gods be good, why would any man ever want to be king? When everyone was shouting King in the North, King in the North, I told myself … s w o r e to myself … that I would be a good king, as honorable as Father, strong, just, loyal to my friends and brave when I faced my enemies … now I can’t even tell one from the other.
How did it all get so confused?
The man’s eyes contain worlds of emotion. WORLDS.
You are a lion my son, you mustn’t be afraid. For one day all the beasts will bow to you. You will be king. All the stags will bow, all the wolves will bow, the bears in the North and the foxes of the South, all the birds in the sky and the beasts in the sea. They will all come to you little lion, to rest a crown upon your head.
