"… it’s not just history. It’s me, I make it happen."
#dw#THIS IS WHY THE 50TH OFFENDS ME#because ”the doctor would never push the button” YES HE FUCKING WOULD#IF IT CAME DOWN TO IT#if it came down to killing a species or city or country or even A FUCKING PLANET#in order to SAVE HISTORY AND HUMANITY AND THE WHOLE UNIVERSE#HE WOULD FUCKING DO IT#don’t tell me that he wouldn’t because we know for a fact that he does it here and in other times and places#and it’s not a bad thing!!!!!#it doesn’t make him evil or stupid for not figuring out a loophole!!!#it makes him STRONG#a leader has to make the tough calls that sometimes costs innocent lives because that’s what’s best for the mission#the mission is what matters (/Buffy)#so don’t tell me that the Doctor would never destroy his planet to save the universe#because here he destroys pompeii to save history#and he takes on that burden of all the lives lost because he MUST#because he’s the ONLY ONE strong enough to shoulder that burden#and don’t tell me dw50 that he’s not that kind of person#because THIS kind of person - the one that destroys pompeii?#THIS person is a hell of a lot stronger and braver than the one who just magically-and-with-no-legitimate-plot-continuity-or-development#uses his ~cleverness~ to save his planet#you want to rewrite the past in order to bring gallifrey back and add a new plot dynamic to the show FINE#but don’t do it in a way that DESTROYS all of his AMAZING character development#don’t do the doctor that disservice#because the fact that he IS capable of putting the needs of the many over the needs of the few is what makes him so special#and the fact that he makes all these heartbreaking decisions and still manages to soldier on is what makes him phenomenal#and the fact that he will continue to make these impossible decisions again and again for the good of the universe even though it tears him apart?#THAT’S what makes him the Doctor(VIA)

“Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia. May your wisdom grace us until the stars rain down from the heavens.”
Conceal, don’t feel.
He couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: ‘To Harry Potter – the boy who lived!’

Effie Trinket + not being oblivious to the Capitol’s true nature
“I’m not sure. I just wanted to hold them accountable, if only for a moment,” says Peeta. “For killing that little girl.”
“This is dreadful.” Effie sounds like she’s about to cry. “That sort of thinking … it’s forbidden, Peeta. Absolutely. You’ll only bring down more trouble on yourself and Katniss.”
#effie is likely the most understated character of the entire series#she’s also perfection#so suck it#i just love the way she says things#it’s like she’s completely oblivious and when with one sentence you realise#she’s not a clueless as everyone thinks#those that say she doesn’t understand#clearly you’re not paying attention (via euphemiabernathy)
