You guys..I just finished watching the season finale and…
I AM FREAKING THE FUCK OUT MAN LIKE HOLY CRAP
*ahem* alright, calm. I'm going to try and do this chronologically but that won't work so,
okay, the repetitive time stream montage with clara and all the doctors was gorgeous and amazing and awesome. I loved the explanation and ending (?) to her story and if moffat wanted to end it just like this, I'd be mildly okay with it. but seriously, I really hope both of them are okay. Clara has been one of my favorite companions and I'd hate to see her go.
oh and the scene where clara was like "oh I didn't realize you were a woman" lololololololol.
omg RIVER. *cries* it was so beautiful. I loved how the doctor reacted when he realized she was dead and then at her grave and then at the tomb. It was so perf, but then I thought he was going to tell her he loved her, but he didn't , but it was okay because they never have to say goodbye and omg the cryes. ohohohoh, and the "spoilers" at the end was gorge. so much tears
I also liked the cute little jenny, strax, and vastra scenes. When the doctor went to save them, I realized how much we'd missed between "The Angels Take Manhattan" and "The Snowmen." They really helped the doctor through that time and I guess it's nice to be reminded that the doctor has bad times too and he needs his friends. So that was cool.
I also loved how they portrayed Trenzalore with the graveyard and the giant TARDIS. When we first heard the prophecy or whatever from Dorium, "At the Fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the Eleventh, a question will be asked…" Honestly, that whole bit had me picturing this nice field with purple flowers everywhere and the Doctor just standing there calmly (like at Lake Silencio), but I guess not. I also don't get that though, which brings us to our next point of talking:
JOHN HURT. okay, so I've decided to believe the fan rumors for the sake of my own sanity. I now maintain that John Hurt will be playing either the doctor before the first doctor (0.5, if you will) or 8.5. There's also that Valeyard rumor going around, but I'll let you lot figure that out on your own.
BUT what I don't understand is, that the prophecy clearly states that all of this will take place at the fall of the eleventh. Does that mean that the doctor actually died when he entered his own time stream? But then what was the point of the scene where he carries Clara away?
And then, they made this huge deal about Trenzalore before. It's supposed to be the place where "no living creature could speak falsely or fail to answer." and I was all like "oh, its this magical place with magic truth powers." But the Doctor didn't even answer the question….
my overall reaction was just [link]
oh, oh, oh! I found this post last night too that I think is just doctor who in a nut shell: "that awkward moment when you get shot by your wife infront of your wife who tries to kill your wife. and then your best friend is just off to the side pregnant with your wife"
ALRIGHTY THEN, onto the dA update:
okay so I have a lot of potential deviations that I've just accumulated over this last year, but was too lazy to post, and so here's the rundown:
~3 pencil drawings:
- hair templates (there's a date and time on this one recording exactly which class I wasted)
- sketch dump
- idk this random thing that I did during a lecture in debate (there's a date/time on this one too)
~2 poems that I may or may not upload
mk, so that's the plan for the early June deviations.
