J.R.R Tolkien, looking at flowers.
Apparently people hated to go for walks with him because he would stop and look at every tree for like 20 minutes.

OMG ARE THOSE FEM!DOCTORS?

Harry Potter/Inception crossover [inspired by x]
Never mess with Nine. Ever.
Reasons you don’t skip Nine.
AU MEME » LOTR as a dark & violent thriller » “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
How would you call a city infected by carcinogenic and ambitious men, feeding off the strenght of its citizens, weakening them slowly by taking away jobs, peace, dreams and hope? A city dying, mirroring the living dead that inhabited its streets.? A city so corrupted that its only prerogative is its own survival and self perpetuation? A city in the hands -and claws- of a rotten soul?
Welcome to Middletown.
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?”
“You know, in all seriousness: everyone got hurt on this movie, everyone was scarred, everyone went through a little bit of physical kind of pain. But if you’re talking about something life-changing… something huge, you know, something that really had a deep effect on all of us - not only the person it happened to, but the crew and most of the Western hemisphere - Orlando breaking his rib was huge.” Dominic Monaghan
There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?
For every laugh, there should be a tear.
Oh god I can’t handle this
Moriarty: How hard do you find it, having to say “I don’t know”?
Sherlock: I don’t know.
Moriarty: Oh, that’s clever; that’s very clever; awfully clever.
