The night was sultry

'Dive...DIVE!' yelled the captain through the thing. So the man who makes it dive pressed a button, or something, and it dove. And the enemy was foiled again.

Make me choose:

blueboxtraveller asked: Rose’s ‘A better way of living your life’ speech or Ten’s ‘I believe in her’ speech

This speech sums up everything I’ve been missing about the series since Clara came onto the scene. Nothing against Clara. I like Clara quite a bit, actually. She’s spunky and she’s brave and she’s funny and she’s smart. She’s got bits of Rose Tyler and Donna Noble and Amy Pond in her, and I loved all of them. Clara is brimming with potential.

And this isn’t about Tenstalgia either. I adored Ten, but I loved most of Eleven, and I’m trying to be open-minded about Twelve. 

It’s about relationship and trust, and bringing a very human, emotional side to a bigger-on-the-inside world. It’s about the Doctor’s cleverness not being able to fix everything, because cleverness is not the be-all end-all of life, and the Doctor knows it. It’s about the Companions being true partners and not just lovely assistants.

It’s about how, once upon a time, the oldest, wisest, bravest, most feared man in all the universe had a true north: an ordinary nineteen-year-old girl who worked in a shop. And even when the solution was death, even when he knew he couldn’t save either of them, he believed in her, and that belief gave him strength.

I miss the Doctor that believed in something and someone outside himself. The Doctor with a true north. I hope he comes back soon.

You looked into my mind and you’ve seen a lot of bad but you’ve seen the good too. The X-Men. Promise me you’ll find us. Use your power, bring us together. Guide us, lead us. Storm, Scott, Jean…remember those names. There’s so many of us. We will need you Professor.

Literally forgave every single shortcoming of this movie the second I saw this scene.
