Superwho AU - Dean Winchester and Rose Tyler - for davidsteninch
When a mission takes Rose to America, she meets and works with the Winchesters to bring down an alien invasion. Eventually she is able to show him that not all monsters are monstrous.
I’m Clara Oswald. I’m the Impossible Girl. I was born to save the Doctor.
I feel like there must be an excellent essay on Mary Sues here. I like Jenna-Louise Coleman as an actress, but at the same time, “I was born to save the Doctor” has some interesting implications. In the meta sense, of course, the character was created to fill a role in the plot. At the same time, reducing her to “I was made to sacrifice myself to save this man’s life, over and over” is a bit alarming. It was her choice, and maybe you could play it as a willing, noble sacrifice, but it’s still a bit disturbing. It reminds me of those melodramatic made-for-Lifetime films where the family has a dying kid, so they have another kid to act as a donor—you end up with this person who is born to suffer for the life of someone else.
Maybe further seasons will give her a bit more to do, but the women of Moffat’s era all seem to have unfortunate implications. River was born, lived, and died because of the Doctor. I mean, back in the Library two-parter, at least she implied that she had her own adventures in the meantime, but all of her we’ve seen on screen has been entwined with the Doctor. Amy was obsessed with the Doctor for most of her life, and then her story ended up getting twisted in with River’s.
Ah, better people than me have criticized Moffat’s writing. I just can’t help but startle a bit at the concept of a character being described as “perfect for (the Doctor)” and “born for (the Doctor)”. It’s really Mary Sue-ish. Maybe not in the sense of a self-insert, but definitely in the sense of “character who focuses and drives the entire plot by virtue of being perfect.”
And yet I still like seeing her each week.
From the Series 6 DVD Box Set: Night and the Doctor
As the Doctor himself said on Trenzalore, he’s had loads of bodies. That’s because the Doctor is a Time Lord, and Time Lords have the ability to regenerate their bodies when they’re worn out or dying. This means that his old body transforms into a new one, along with a new appearance and persona – a brand new Doctor! But underneath these surface changes, he’s still the same man, the same hero and adventurer.
The series finale gave us glimpses of many Doctors, including the very first - that was the white-haired figure that Clara spoke to at the beginning of the episode. We saw the ‘impossible girl’ interrupt him as he was about to steal a TARDIS, advising him to take the time machine that he still travels in today. The Second Doctor was the man wearing a big, furry coat and the Third was behind the wheel of his trusty old car, Bessie. It’s clear that every Doctor has a distinctive look – tall and handsome, short and impish, old, young… All different! But what’s more exciting is their unique personalities and eccentricities - you can read more by following the links below. You’ll see that the Doctor has always been a hero, but in different ways in different times.
The guide shows the Doctors - click on any of them and you’ll be taken to a page that gives you the low down on that particular Doctor. What they were like, who they travelled with and what caused them to regenerate. If you want to find out more, simply follow the links to their stories and you’ll discover some brilliant clips from their adventures, galleries, fact files and much more. We’ll be adding much more in the coming months, but for now, here’s a guide to the greatest hero of them all: The Doctor….
Greetings, new followers! sorry if I haven’t said hi yet—HI. Whatever you came here for, I hope you find more of it. Please note that I go from talky text posts to squeeful photos and back again without warning, and at the moment both tend to involve Ben Whishaw. Or Shakespeare. Or Ben Whishaw doing Shakespeare. If one of them bores you, just hang out a bit and the other will come along.
Oh, and sometimes there’s porn (see below the cut). Thanks, and welcome!
