In which Deep Breath references all of the things.

(Pinterest version here if you’d like to see it in one big scrolley thing. And these are just the ones I noticed whilst a tad tipsy in the theater. More to come on subsequent watches, possibly.)

So we’re all going to ignore that he picked up and is holding yellow roses when he’s trying to remember the thing that a yellow (haired) Rose figured out for him the last time?

"You’re Welcome." Part II

Oh my god I thought the same thing when I watched this part

pesrephone:

I don’t even understand why Moffat hate is a thing. He writes the show. Logic is that if you don’t like how a show is written, then you just don’t watch it. Stop bitching about it constantly just SHUSH

I don’t even understand why people who are in bad relationships still stay in them. It’s like they actually expect it to get better. Logic is that if it hasn’t gotten better it won’t. Stop hoping for it constantly SHEESH.

So, finally got a friend of mine to start watching Who. He resisted for a long time, but eventually became one of us. My brother and I kept our opinions on the season’s showrunners to ourselves - “The Moffat Experiment” - to see what a fresh take on the show thought of the show’s direction to date (not counting the as-yet unreleased s8).
Looks like one doesn’t need any outside influence to have a dislike for Moffat. 
Eventually he conceded that Smith wasn’t a bad actor at all, but was unfortunately just given a kitschy type of character to play. I’ve convinced him to keep with it. I’m somewhat fond of the direction s7 takes after Amy/Rory leave. I can see what was intended with the overall story arc - slowly introduce The Great Intelligence’s influence throughout the season, bring more and more curiosity as to who Clara is - but it was rushed. Hoping s8 will take a turn for the better.
I’m rooting for you, Capaldi!

Ninth Doctor Headcanon

When the Ninth Doctor first asked Rose to travel through time with him and refused, the Doctor accepted that and moved on. He traveled through space and time, saving the universe, all lonely for years thinking “I wish Rose could have been here.” Eventually, he goes back to a few seconds after he left Rose and says “By the way, did I mention it also travels in time?”

Rose never knew how long the Doctor waited for her.

I think this makes sense. In the episode Rose you see all those photos of Nine at the assassination of Kennedy and at the Titanic (on his own). But also in that episode he’s checking his reflection in the mirror like he’s seeing it for the first time, so he can’t have been long regenerated. So maybe he does all that stuff in the time before he comes back and says “Did I mention, it also travels in time?”

which makes that line even more powerful because this time he would really want her to say yes, because he knows what it’s like without her. 

What’s interesting are the events the Doctor (theoretically) chose to visit during that time between when Rose (theoretically) first said no, and when he returned to extend the invitation a second time. Nine was photographed/drawn near the Titanic, Krakatoa, and the Kennedy assassination. All horrible catastrophes with tragic loss of life, all catastrophes that caused profound change in human history, catastrophes that (if Pompeii and Bowie Base One are anything to go by), would likely qualify as fixed points in time. 

This leads me to believe that the Doctor was nearly in the throes a Time Lord Victorious breakdown as a result of the Time War and Rose’s rejection. He was dancing around the edges of these fixed points, likely looking for a way to save lives and prove to himself that he wasn’t a vile person. To prove to himself he could make a difference. 

To prove to himself that he’s worthy of having someone brave and clever like Rose as a companion.

And Nine (obviously) doesn’t save Kennedy’s life or stop the eruption of Krakatoa, but in the episode “Rose” we find out he DOES save one family originally scheduled to travel on the Titanic by convincing them to delay their trip. A small measure of redemption.

Enough so that the Doctor summons the courage to return to that dark London sidewalk and casually lean out the door of his TARDIS like no time had passed at all, like he hadn’t been scrabbling in the wake of Rose’s rejection. And then he said the words he’d practiced alone in his console room dozens of times, with the exact amount of calculated swagger he’d rehearsed: “By the way, did I mention it also travels in time?”

Hogwarts Houses in Circular Gallifreyan

Slytherin, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Gryffindor

So, been re-watching S7 to get ready for the start of S8 and a little one-liner in “Hide" had me wondering. What umbrella holder?

I thought I saw it when Ten was getting dressed (it’s a little metal can, umbrella-holder-sized, I think?), but I don’t see it there. Does he mean the coat rack?

Okay, so I know we’ve all seen that post saying that 9 is a Gryffindor, 10 is a Ravenclaw and 11 is a Hufflepuff. (Here's one example.) This is a screencap from Ten's first episode, which means it's Nine's wardrobe to date. It's not Four’s scarf… 
Looks like Nine really did visit Hogwarts.

gogoravenclaw asked:

for the cape - pin the inside of the cape to the back of your shirt along the line of your shoulders or your back, and have the tying rope be all slack and easy. alternatively have the tie be across your chest and shoulders, rather than the neck. just make the tying rope longer and have it sit over your front. OR you can tie it in your armpit although that seems a little bit uncomfortable. oh well. good luck!

I’m thinking of going with a fairly thin cotton shirt, so unless I also hook it to my bra, I don’t know that pinning the cloak to my shirt will work too well. Probably going to go across my shoulders and cross at my chest (like you suggested). I might try doing some kind of under-armed back-holster thing, but yeah - it doesn’t sound comfy.

Thank you!! 

My Mistcloak cosplay sketches

I’m having some serious implementation issues. I want the majority of the tassles to be on the back side, where it wouldn’t interfere with fighting. I don’t want it to attach across the neck, because I don’t want to choke myself.

But with all of the cloak’s weight on the back side, how do I get it to stay on?? (Oh, please disregard my crummy people proportions… there’s a reason I don’t draw people…)
