From the Great Library of the Clayr, a selection of passages from Lirael’s journey.
OKAY so, I had a High Medieval Art History class this term and instead of an essay we were allowed to authentically recreate an art form from our lectures, so I chose to illuminate a manuscript using passages and content from Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series, include Nick/Orannis’s song, the Five Charters, the warning rhyme of the dead and water and the titles of the Nercomancer’s bells. I completed it yesterday, using ink, tempera, and a gold foiling pen.
The motifs are all in reference to the Burney 275, a manuscript from 1310 by a Parisian illuminator, but I incorporated Abhorsen, Clayr and Charter based symbols. See what you can spot! I am really proud of this thing, might take better photos of it when I get it back from being marked.
Most kids on this website don’t even know what this is

"Clara has no personality outside of her mystery"
Based on/inspired by this picspam, because apparently some things need to be really clearly pointed out. (And I wanted to explain the scared/brave thing.)
Click the gifs for context/more commentary.
Funny how people don’t pay attention to characterization and then try and blame Moffat for their ignorance.
"Clara’s a carbon copy of Amy!"
Then why did she stay put instead of following The Doctor? Why does she hate history when Amy loved it? Why did she tell The Doctor to come back the next day when Amy wanted to fly off with him the first night he arrived? Why does Clara only travel with him one day a week when Amy traveled with him nonstop for huge stretches of time?
How is all of that a lack of characterization and personality?
If people are really going to assume that guys with long hair are gay and girls with short hair are lesbians then I am going to assume that all bald men are actually eagles.

The Twelfth Doctor’s first line
the thing is though when this doesn’t happen I’m going to be so horrendously disappointed.
I would rather listen to “What Does the Fox Say?” for a week straight than ever hear “Blurred Lines” again.
I agree with this
Right you are, Malcolm.
Because the very traits that got young Peter rejected from drama school are the exact same traits that got him cast in Local Hero that started his screen acting career that all these many, many years later would lead first to Malcolm Tucker and then finally to his dream role that he’d waited for his entire life in which the very first scene we have of him as the Doctor is an enormous 3-D close-up of his eyebrows.
It’s like a story — only better — because it’s true.
I bet Moffat is going to make just as much fun of Peter’s eyebrows as he did of Matt’s chin
I hope he does
I would love nothing more.
Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.
WHOVIANS WHO DIDN’T LIKE THE 50TH:
To those of you complaining that the End of Time’s ending no longer makes sense, I would like to point out that it, in fact, does. The above picture is a screenshot of the Master’s page in regards to the end of time. You can read the full page here: [x]
First things first, the Master and the Doctor destroyed a link between Earth and the then thought to be time-locked Gallifrey. A LINK. Not all of Gallifrey, as I’ve seen a few posts claiming. This sent them, and potentially the Master as well, “back into hell” of the final day of the Time War.
As far as the council knew, it WAS the final day of the time war. The council, as you might have noticed, was not in this episode. Probably specifically for this reason. They were too busy securing a safe escape for themselves through the White-Point Star. AND I QUOTE FROM THE EPISODE, "The High Council is in emergency session - they have plans of their own." THIS LINE WAS VERY MUCH INTENTIONAL. In fact, the whole story line of the Master and the White-Point Star link could easily have gone down before the planet was stashed away by the doctors. In fact, that story line could run parallel to the Doctor trying to decide whether or not to destroy Gallifrey.
Now there are some saying, “BUT THE GUILT HE FELT WASN’T EVEN REAL.” No, it was real. As was stated in the episode, when they reentered their own time streams, the War Doctor and Ten individually forgot. And even if Eleven were to forget, Clara’s timeline was not changed, and therefore she would easily be able to remember and fill the Doctor in. It’s also why Eleven didn’t remember when he ran into Ten - because to his memory as Ten, it hadn’t happened to him. Getting back to the guilt, when the War Doctor (or 8.5 as some are calling him) woke up as nine, his planet would be gone. The last thing he would have remembered before crossing into the time streams would be trying to decide. His planet and all the Daleks are gone and only he remains, just as the Moment told him would be his fate if he chose to burn Gallifrey. And what can he find of his home? Nothing. So, naturally, he would assume that he chose to do it and that he killed his people, thus triggering the guilt in Russel T. Davies’ storyline.
TLDR: MOFFAT DID NOT IGNORE THE END OF TIME. PLEASE STOP.
