Doctor Who Fest Day 6: favorite accessory of the Doctor - Ten’s new floral-themed ties after he lost Rose in Doomsday
Ten’s post-Doomsday switch from geometric neckties to predominantly floral neckties gifset+commentfic (6/?)
His fashion sense was impeccable in this new new body. As brilliant as him, in fact, and he made sure everything was a perfect fit before he’d wear it out—a slim suit for his foxy new build, and the ties—oh the ties! The pattern was sometimes a starburst to match his hair, or blue boxes to match the TARDIS. There was a spiraling whirlwind of possibilities in the patterns that would carry him and Rose running hand in hand anywhere… and everywhere.After that horrible day he lost her, there wasn’t a whirlwind inside him so much as a void. She was all he could think about, and she was gone… and so when he went to his wardrobe, there was only one pattern that caught his eye. And, well, it was still a perfect fit, wasn’t it? She always had been, after all.
okay so imagine an au where the potters live. harry dates oliver wood briefly. james hears of this and pulls harry aside. stares him in the eye with a deadly serious face
“he’s a Keeper”
You made an entire AU that would alter almost every facet of that series
For a pun
You’re a beautiful person.
#A reverse Henry VIII where Rose is Queen Henrietta VIII #and the Doctor is her latest conquest #she’s insatiable #a widow with a slew of headless princes in her wake #not to mention a religious revolution and wild social reforms empowering women and the poor #The gentry are mortified and awed at her political cunning and prowess #The Doctor is the youngest son of a dead duke of some note #his elder brother inherited the titles and had political ambitions but he never did #Not even after Henrietta spotted him at a ball and locked onto him with laser-like focus #His elder brother pushes him into capitulating to a relationship for the sake of the family’s name - to keep her from casting them into dishonor #At first he’s concerned with keeping the Queen happy and thereby keeping his head #but within short order he’s genuinely enamored #The whispers at court (and in his ear as she shares his bed) are that she’s truly in love this time #for the first time she’s found her equal #Until a plot by the French ambassador Rassilon tricks the Doctor into a compromising position with someone else - a Spanish spy named El Maestro #Everyone says he’s an old friend and lover of the Doctor’s (they aren’t wrong) #Henrietta is devastated at the possibility of political and personal betrayal from the one person she trusted most #She doesn’t want to believe the Doctor capable of such treachery but the proof is undeniable #stay tuned next week for another episode of THE WHODORS [-gallifreyburning]
It’s all yours - Planet Earth. Now that’s a retirement plan. But just you be careful, though. No interfering. I don’t want any trouble. Just… just have a nice life.
Oh Doctor, I will make you proud.
GUYS, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE.
MR. COPPER WENT ON TO CREATE THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION.
YOU KNOW, THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION WHICH INVENTED THE SUBWAVE NETWORK.
THE SUBWAVE NETWORK WHICH HARRIET JONES USED IN ‘THE STOLEN EARTH’ TO BRING THE DOCTOR BACK TO EARTH TO FIGHT THE DALEK INVASION AND STOP THE REALITY BOMB.
MR. COPPER IS THE BIGGEST UNSUNG HERO IN DOCTOR WHO.
I hated school, I hated school. And I didn’t realize why. I thought I was…I was, I thought there was something wrong with me for hating school, for not being able to deal with school. At the time it was ingrained in me that school was: if you’re not successful in school you’re not going to be successful in life. And the hierarchy with the subjects at school, like the arts are given no credence. And if they are, it’s false credence. So, I look back on it and and I’m angry. I’m angry about it because, you know, there might be a brilliant ballerina somewhere in school who’s being forced to do maths, and she sees it difficult. But if she’s just allowed to express whatever gifts she has to offer then she would be happy and then she could make hundreds of thousands of other people joyous for a couple of hours per night.
