Pronounced "ska-lya." Champion navel-gazer, veteran pseudo-fictioneer. Expect dinosaurs (and other paleobeasties), aquatic life (the weirder the better), Doctor Who (all sorts), Spider-Man (original flavor) and whatever else takes my fancy. 95% reblogs, 5% pointless text posts.
I try to tag for common triggers, but don't hesitate to ask if you need something added.

So how about that scene where three women debated the fate of humanity? I also appreciate that I can sympathise with both Clara and the Doctor: I feel it was right of him to let humanity decide, but he went about it the most dickish way possible.
Yeah, same here. Clara’s point about ‘training wheels’ made me think, what he essentially metaphorically did was remove the training wheels from her bike and then push her down a hill. Sure, it’s gonna teach her to ride, but what a dickish thing to do.
How exactly does she need to learn to ride, anyway? (Asking the Doctor, not you.) Like, was talking the Doctor out of using the Moment not enough? What about how she supported him through all his own moral dilemmas a few episodes ago?
I mean, the Doctor left Susan in a post-apocalyptic wasteland because he thought it was time she left the nest — from that angle you can see how he would think he was showing Clara respect by giving her the chance to make the big decision he usually makes. But the meta-decision was unilaterally his, and she was right to call him on how bullshit his reasoning was.
I love Rory Williams and he’ll always be one of my favourite Who characters, but I think the reaction to him versus the reaction to Danny has been very, very telling.
"OMG Rory is so intuitive and smart and cares about Amy!" vs. "Danny is the worst why is he so useless and mean and emotionally abusive." Uh-huh, riiiiight.
Headcanons for Charley’s and C’rizz’s rooms aboard the TARDIS.
- Yes, that’s a phonograph connected to a mp3 player. Because it’s much more convenient that way.
- Charley is writing her “Memoirs of an Edwardian Adventuress”.
- I can’t imagine her room as a tidy one, so, yeah, there’s stuff everywhere.
- C’rizz is looking at the beads made out of bones that he apparently kept as a souvenir (they talk about them at the beginning of Absolution). I always imagined the Absolver like one of these crystal bombs from Myst IV, though…
- The TARDIS knows that he’s homesick and tries to recreate views of his homeworld on the wall. It often makes things worse, unfortunately.
Eight doesn’t need a bedroom because he doesn’t sleep a lot. He probably just falls asleep on the TARDIS’ console for an hour or so.
These are perfect!
…fall. Don’t let me fall. Don’t let me fall. Don’t - I - I love the state. I love the state. I venerate the regime.
It’s difficult to draw something about The Natural History of Fear without spoiling it. At least I tried.
Also, obligatory Brazil reference in the second drawing.
When I refer to this scene as “Clara’s interrogation” I don’t mean “when she was interrogated.”
