thedimensioningforces said: Gettin' so fed up with people complaining that Clara goes home when she wants to instead of moving into the TARDIS full time. How is that remotely a bad thing?
It’s one of the most ridiculous problems that people have had with her to date.
Oh, she sets her own damn boundaries? Opted out of dropping her real life and it’s responsibilities to live with a man she barely knew as if it was all one long vacation? Continued to maintain those boundaries as they grew closer?
People wanna act like she’s not appreciative of their travels, like she’s ungrateful and boring for wanting to balance her own life with spending time with the Doctor.
You know what? Fuck ALL of that. The Doctor is appreciative of Clara’s presence and her time and that is literally how all of this has been set up and I would not change this shit for anything. You’ll notice he’s never complained and has been 100% on board with respecting Clara’s boundaries and rules.
Maybe one day Clara will move in with him, but wouldn’t it be a nice change of pace for that to be a REAL and DIFFICULT life changing decision for once instead of something people just do when they meet the Doctor.
All I see is same old Clara. I know I’m not the only one here. Same Clara I’ve known since Bells of Saint John. I didn’t realize she was bossy and a control-freak on the previous episode when she blurted it out, I’ve known it from her first episode when she insisted she would only travel with the Doctor under her own set of rules.
If you couldn’t see her personality before, it’s probably because you were too busy grieving the loss of the Ponds, or making your own overblown theories about what Clara’s mystery was ( it was just a short, half-season arc, it wasn’t supposed to be the biggest reveal ever, and considering that, the reveal that her previous appearances were actually echoes is rewarding enough, so it wasn’t the character that was underdeveloped, it was YOU who was focusing too much on the plot device) or getting hyped up about the then oncoming 50th anniversary celebrations, or worried about all the lose ends on the eleventh doctor’s story, that it didn’t leave you any space to appreciate the character.
And that’s fine, now you see it, and instead of enjoying, you try to rationalise that now that Clara has a character it’s because she is now out-of-character.
SERIOUSLY, THE LENGTHS SOME WHOVIANS WILL GO TO WHEN THEY DECIDE TO DISLIKE SOME ASPECT OF THE SHOW. YOU ACTUALLY PUT EFFORT INTO NOT ENJOYING IT.
