tbh has anyone ever thought to just take turns blinking one eye when there’s the angel thing in doctor who?

I spent a lot of time with you thinking I was second best, but you know what? I am good.
Moffat’s Women - Oswin Oswald
Oswin is a genius, so smart that the Daleks decided to convert her when the Alaska crashed at the Asylum. She proceeds to build her own little world in her mind, in which she is still shipwrecked among the Daleks, but carries on bravely, baking soufflés (with varying degrees of success) and sabotaging the planet’s systems. Oswin projects an air of self-confidence and flirtation, she’s always good for a quip and quick to make friends - but she still never loses sight of her own interests and goals.
Finding out the truth about what she had become is horrific. Nevertheless, the same girl who pursued her dreams to travel across the universe, who kept the Daleks out of her head for a year by nothing but strength of will even if it broke her, succeeds at holding on to her identity. Ultimately, Oswin values her humanity to the point where she sends the Doctor away and stays behind at the Asylum, fully knowing what would happen once she takes down the forcefield.

#did i ask for any of this#no#here comes the best part tho: it’s a draft#and thank u moffat for striking this out#beecause a). i would’ve had a break down#and b). we never got the doctor’s avoidance to answer#bec if he told the truth#it would have hurt him too much#this being a draft is a good thing#IMAGINE IF IT WERE CANON#they’d have to write an ‘i love river so much’ scene#one big nope#this quote physically hurts me (via agelessdaughter)
#That is the best part #because I think that Moffat set out to reveal the Doctor’s true feelings about the wife he never mentioned #it was a culmination #but Steven couldn’t get the words right #he couldn’t hear the Doctor’s voice in these drafts and maybe it’s because Steven was forcing something that wasn’t true to either the Doctor or River #just for those who kept wondering and doubting if the Doctor loved his wife #he placed Clara in the scene #but all he got was the Doctor revealing to Clara that 'River had always been better than him' #because THAT IS ALL the Doctor would ever say to anyone about his personal life #including a companion #and so Moffat scratched it #it was only until the final draft that he’d get it perfect #because no one was there to hear the revelation of just how much he loved River BUT THEM#just like it had always been #and THAT was the voice of the Doctor # and it was perfect(via riveralwaysknew)
#the fact that this is a draft#just makes it clear that the intention behind all of the Doctor’s actions when seeing River’s echo#comes from love#not just any love#but MORE LOVE THAN HE COULD EVER HAVE HAD IN HIS TWO HEARTS#which only makes everything hurt more#the fact that he couldn’t bring himself to say goodbye#or even acknowledge her#a woman who was clever and brave and funny and who he LOVED#I can’t#goodbye#my night is ruined (via likeabookonashelf)
he never has to say he loves River, because it’d be like talking about breathing, no one has to talk about breathing, it’s just something we do, the Doctor doesn’t have to talk about loving River, because it’s just something he does via takemebacktogallifrey
captain of the innuendo squad, jack harkness: the sound of drums"You work for Torchwood?"
"I swear to you, it’s different. It’s changed. There’s only a half dozen of us now. The old regime was destroyed at Canary Wharf. I rebuilt it. I changed it. And when I did that, I did it for you, in your honor."
"You can love more than one person." Of course you can. But marriage is something different. Marriage is memory, marriage is time. [x]
