On airy nothings and tomorrows that never come

A collection of random, assorted interests.

Mostly Doctor Who. Mostly Classic. William Hartnell is my Doctor and One/Steven/Dodo is my Team TARDIS. If you're here looking for Tenth Doctor stuff you're in the wrong place.

Also, a lot of Jean Marsh. A lot of Jean Marsh.

Other things you may see include baseball, anime, manga, Upstairs Downstairs, Law and Order: SVU, My Little Pony, Seinfeld, Father Ted, Sealab 2021, yarn porn, and whatever miscellaneous other stuff catches my eye.

Ask box is always open. Anon is always on. Enjoy your stay!

Sheer poetry dear boy

This part is so great.

Perfect people alert

Truth.

Awww, look at them hands-on-hips-ing together.  So precious!

I’m sorry, this needed reposting.

He just looks so fascinated.

Oh look!  Pretty people!

Oh, Steven, why are you doubting yourself?  The choices you make are always excellent!  /so much sarcasm

SPOILERS FOR SALVATION, DON’T READ AHEAD IF YOU DON’T WANT SPOILERS FOR THIS NOVEL

So, this is the point where Steven starts doubting his decisions.  Please note that in this book alone, this is after he:

  • storms out of the TARDIS and into New York City alone
  • gets a homeless guy pissed off at him because he tried to befriend him instead of giving him money
  • gets mugged in Central Park
  • gets stabbed by the muggers because he tried to fight them off even though he had no money
  • almost dies until the intervention of an alien god type dude
  • chases after the alien
  • continues to hang around outside and almost falls asleep to the sound of the TARDIS (which, okay, is kind of precious)

So now he’s LETTING A WOMAN HE JUST MET BUY HIM COFFEE after she pretty much just told him that SHE’S A REPORTER AND WANTS TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS BLUE BOX THAT JUST SUDDENLY APPEARED HERE.

I mean, yeah, he thinks this might not be a good idea.  BUT HE STILL GOES WITH HER. 

GOD.  DAMMIT.  STEVEN.

I always love seeing people’s first reactions to Steven.  Especially if they’re watching in order because it’s almost always ‘what the hell is wrong with this guy?’ and that’s probably the best way to meet him.  Seeing a grown man run into a huge, burning building to save a stuffed panda really prepares you well for all of the bad decisions and DAMMIT STEVEN moments to come.

:D

  • STEVEN: Nicholas? You had to leave Anne Chaplet there to die.
  • DOCTOR: Anne Chaplet?
  • STEVEN: The girl! The girl who was with me! If you'd brought her with us she needn't have died. But no, you had to leave her there to be slaughtered.
  • DOCTOR: Well, it is possible of course she didn't die, and I was right to leave her.
  • STEVEN: Possible? Look, how possible? That girl was already hunted by the Catholic guards. If they killed ten thousand how did they spare her? You don't know, do you? You can't say for certain that you weren't responsible for that girl's death.
  • DOCTOR: I was not responsible.
  • STEVEN: Oh, no. You just sent her back to her aunt's house where the guards were waiting to catch her. I tell you this much, Doctor, wherever this machine of yours lands next I'm getting off. If your researches have so little regard for human life then I want no part of it.
  • DOCTOR: We've landed. Your mind is made up?
  • (The Tardis doors open.)
  • STEVEN: Goodbye.
  • DOCTOR: My dear Steven, history sometimes gives us a terrible shock, and that is because we don't quite fully understand. Why should we? After all, we're all too small to realise its final pattern. Therefore don't try and judge it from where you stand. I was right to do as I did. Yes, that I firmly believe.
  • (Steven leaves the Tardis without another word.)
  • DOCTOR: Even after all this time he cannot understand. I dare not change the course of history. Well, at least I taught him to take some precautions. He did remember to look at the scanner before he opened the doors. Now they're all gone. All gone. None of them could understand. Not even my little Susan, or Vicki. And as for Barbara and Chatterton. Chesterton. They were all too impatient to get back to their own time. And now, Steven. Perhaps I should go home, back to my own planet. But I can't. I can't.

“In 1965, one of the adventures had a character in it called Steven. He was a stranded space pilot who was rescued by the Doctor. And Steven became one of the Doctor’s permanent travelling companions. If you‘re wondering how I know so much about him, take a look at this.”Peter Purves, Blue Peter 05/11/1973

Oh hey multiple interests in one gif!
