also can we talk about the fact that Clara Oswald doesn’t have to be “tough” to be brave
Like she is crying and shaking and openly admits that she’s terrified
but she still stands her ground and refuses to yield and trusts that the Doctor will come for her
and I just really appreciate showing that kind of strength because that’s not a kind of strength that gets portrayed a lot
girls don’t want boys, girls want a soaking wet natalie dormer telling katie mcgrath to do her
‘til River kills The Doctor.
You gather years in your hair,
time flowing from your fingertips
onto the page
you write yourself as a time traveler.
I wish I knew you back then,
when your hair was darker
and you were shorter,
you told me you used to be shy
and I laughed.
The idea of you and silence didn’t fit
because you are always singing.
When you told me you used to sit alone
at recess and read on the playground
I could imagine you :
lounging on a bench
your legs dangling above the grass
your hair obscuring your vision,
I wished I could have been there.
To brush the curls from your eyes
and scoot close,
close enough to smell your conditioner
close enough to kiss
but we would just smile
In the way kids do.
I put in a request for a time machine, dear
but it could be a while
so in the meantime…
Can I just borrow yours?”
