aka I opened an Etsy!

As per my predictable trends, there's four prints up right now of my Whouff' stuff, because hey I like them and they look nice when printed. As someone extremely meticulous about print quality (ask the illustration students when I was lab attendant) and actually contemplating a CMYK tattoo, I assure you the quality is top-notch. Individually printed with not a pixel out of place.

I'm testing the waters with this, and there's a few other files I need to adjust that I'm going to put up, BUT YEAH. Prints! I ship internationally! And it's affordable too because I understand how much it sucks.

If there's anything you'd like as a print, please let me know! I have the technology...and the properly sized files.

"In the Forest of the Night" has me shipping Whouffaldi too much.
Their conflict is what makes them a REAL life-like love.
I don't get the hate this season. In terms of characterization, this season's the best we've probaly ever had in New Who. For one, Clara's so much more of a character than she used to be. She's got the bravery of Martha and Rose, with the moral conscience of Donna.
Oh and the Doctor. Capaldi's given the Doctor so much character. He's not just the "wounded old soldier" he used to be. The Doctor's scared of caring, because life takes everything away from him. He's searching for his planet, but yet there's still nothing. It's been 800 years since he's saved Gallifrey. Everytime he's tried saving something, it's been either a consequence or a failure. Gallifrey, Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Amy and Rory and River. He gives Clara the chance cause he's too afraid he'll screw up again.
I think deep down this Doctor just wants to keep moving cause if he stops then he'd break. He has to choose. His endless desire to run or his companion Clara?
That's what I'm interested to see in "Dark Water" and "Death in Heaven".

Clara is, and has become, unlike any companion he's had before. Ever since Deep Breath in particular, he has thought of her as an equal. Like, an actual equal. Wait, I said this to someone on my DA page before. I dunno who it was so if I'm repeating information I'm sorry. 8D; But like - an equal! He knows she can save herself, she is clever and capable; I think most telling is how they see the other as the same thing: Egotistical needy game-player. And yet they have no desire to see the other be different, they either love them because of that or love them spite of that.

Regardless, I think 12 is grappling with the fact that he feels he should move on, and over the course of the season, it's very obvious that he can't. He is increasingly clingy in the sense that he keeps popping up more in more in Clara's life (at school, at her flat, during dates??) and taking her to places. And Clara never backs down; she's always engaging him or taking him up on offers to go places (before/in the middle of dates??). The two are completely involved with the other but clearly do not want to admit that, and do not want to fess up to how messy and complicated that would make...everything.

In Flatline, Clara actually became the Doctor, and actually showed her as an equal. I wouldn't go as so far as to say she was a copy of him, but she had to play the part - she had to be Doctor Oswald - and that, more than anything, has solidifed her as an equal to him. In the Forest of the Night showed her flair for Doctor Oswald again, only to be reigned in by the fact that Clara is still very human and acknowledges that. (Though I was joking, with the whole "I don't want to be the last of my kind", where 12 is just "c'mon Clara, it'll be great, we can the last of our kind TOGETHER and angst about it!") But to me, that proves that it isn't just the Doctor, the Time Lord of Gallifrey, that can be the Doctor. It can be Clara, human of Earth, who can be the Doctor.

I walk your Earth, I breathe your air...oh shoot I have a few drawings I'm behind on posting...

So apparently in the finale, we're told 12 gets to kiss someone. I'm wary about getting my hopes up - it's probably Missy, it's probably her kissing him, and he probably flails around with it - but daaang I'm kinda pumped.

Well if I'm right atleast than maybe Missy IS Clara.
The boyfriend hints in Deep Breath and the "hard busy day" in the Caretaker (I think that's the episode when it happened)
Whatever it is, Clara looks PISSSSSSSSED in that preview for Dark Water/Death in Heaven.
And I have a feeling that while Series 8 is hated now, one day it'll be one of the most beloved. People used to think McCoy and Baker's times were shit too, but now they're very beloved.

Quite frankly, if people don't like series 8, there is something wrong with them, not the show. I've seen more praise for this season than not and so I hope the ones that dislike it are more isolated incidents than an actual trend. Personally it's rivaling s5 as my favorite season (and both are good, but for different reasons, so I don't think really outranks the other at this point).

As far as Missy being Clara - I've heard this theory, obviously, and while it would make sense, I hope that this doesn't mess with the Clara Oswald we know. One of the best things about her in s7, and something very important that the Doctor learned, was that Clara was just Clara. She was who she was, not some mystery or trap for the Doctor. If we learn that Clara is a product of Missy, and not that Missy is a product of Clara, I will not be very happy. It would screw too much with her characterization and do a great injustice to the character.

Alright. Where do you want to start? I have many feelings over how very very complicated their relationship is.

I have all of these feels that need to be vented out, and I have no friends that are whovians. Curse this country.  [spoiler to the episode Kill the Moon]

The 12/Clara moment at the end of the episode 'Kill the Moon'. It's so different when you view their own respective perspectives, holy crap I'm crying right now. It feels like 12 allowed Clara to make the decision since he didn't want to make the same mistake in 10's era 'The Waters of Mars' being all superior due to being a timelord. He understood that he wasn't a god. He had learn to TRUST the decisions of others.

Now Clara, born to save the Doctor, has been there for him so many times, I can kind of understand why she would get mad. A friend leaving her when she never left him. Big decisions like these correlate to the 50th anniversary when Clara had this big speech about how there's always a way to save someone. She was by his side and he didn't return the favour when she had to make a big decision to save Earth, her HOME.

It's all very complicated, bawling my eyes out right now.

Last week with The Caretaker, I was very frustrated at the majority response being that Danny was in the wrong (how??) and that somehow the Doctor's behavior was excusable. It was anything but that. (My mounting frustration lead me to writing an essay.) This week I am thrilled to death that more people are grasping at the idea that the characters are neither right nor wrong, that there is an actually conflict between the two, and everything - everything, from KtM to the Caretaker to the beginning of the season - stems back to how the Doctor and Clara just aren't communicating properly. I read a very good post about this and how damn compelling their relationship is more than any other in (New) Who so far. [link]

There's something there, there's some kind of love there, and it's not coming out right. 12 thinks he's respecting Clara by not interfering with humanity's decisions but that's not how she saw it. I love how the Doctor finally, truly, sees a companion as an equal rather than thinking he has the upper hand (or in the case of, say, River, not having the upper hand a lot) because he implicitly trusts her and states that she will do the right thing. He did it in Deep Breath (when he seemingly abandoned her), he did it in The Caretaker, he did it KtM. The problem is, he doesn't realize how incredibly stressful that last one was, and his intentions did not come across, and his reaction to her crying shows his utter confusion and lack of understanding.

My ship really needs to be locked in a room and talk their feelings out.

I quite liked it! To be honest, for about a week before the premiere, I was worry that I wasn't going to like him for whatever reason - then I actually watched the episode and was so enthralled that I can't believe I ever thought that.
