The actual scene.
You didn’t get your Hogwarts letter? No problem! It probably just got lost in the mail, or the owl that was supposed to deliver it got distracted, happens all the time. We apologize for any inconvenience and are happy to announce that you are accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
And here is your ticket!
not exactly the stories in the most traditional sense
#You know what I love about Vastra? #how ACCEPTING she is #even though she’s a far more advanced race #with psychic powers and unknown intelligence #she’s learned to love people and aliens for who they are and not for what they lack #instead of ignoring Clara or discounting her interest in what she assumed were advertisements #Vastra acknowledges Clara and engaged her in conversation #she could have easily rolled her eyes or #changed the subject to something else #or just looked down on her because she COULD #but she doesn’t #she meets her on her level #and that’s what she did with Jenny #and Strax #and that’s how a rejected lizard woman found a family… #Vastra could have easily become a bitter reptilian for everything she had gone through #shunned #called deformed… #but instead #through her suffering #she chose empathy (via riveralwaysknew)
Phoebe Buffay Best Comebacks
- Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
- Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that
