The boy who waited by the-zilla The boy who waited by the-zilla
Two thousand years, Rory. You won't even sleep; you'd be conscious every second. It would drive you mad.
Will she be safer if I stayed? Look me in the eye and
tell me she wouldn't be safer.
Rory -
Answer me.
Yes. Obviously.
Then how could I leave her?



I don't know how to express my love for Rory Williams in ways that don't spoil Doctor Who. Unoriginal title, unoriginal situation, but this one exchange left me in dire need of tissues even before the episode's halfway point.

Six hours, one layer, reference, texture.
Doctor Who is now a thing that I am slowly working into the summer (though I did start rather disjointedly with Series 5).

Okay, I just followed you, just because of this picture... It's amazing.
And yeah.. I remember watching the episode where amy gets left behind for 30 years or whatever.. and how much she held that over Rory's head.. wanted to say, "Yeah well, he waited 2000 years, so get over it." Hehe.
Wonderfully done. :}

Jesus christ, that's so good. I'm amazed you have the patience for this stuff it's crazy! I'm glad, though, I mean, it's clearly worth it. dang. the colors are perfect, and the texture on like the pandorica and the cave wall and the bit right next to the shadow the pandorica casts that's kind of purple and green is really nice.

I loved the fifth season finale. I could watch it a million times and never get tired of it. Rory is the best hands down, what a darling coconut. haha, or a tender marzipan. And just to complete my paragraph about my enthusiasm for doctor who, I love I am the doctor.

Thank you for picking out all the weird colour bits! I'm happy they worked in the end. :>

Also YES TO EVERYTHING in your second bit. Rory is like sugar-spun marzipan in human form, with the brain of a coconut and draped allover in centurion garb. You go Rory.
I am so enthusiastic about "I am the Doctor" right now that I'm going to try to get it arranged for the band to play as a filler tune (between plays in the middle of a football game, or during time-outs during halftime).

My Doctor Who history has been Blink + Series 3 finale => {ONE YEAR LATER} => Series 5 to completion minus the Angels episodes => half of Series 6 minus the two Silence episodes => Series 3 to completion => Series 4 until the moment Donna says BAD WOLF and I go okay this is now a part of Doctor Who that I've encountered in passing as pop culture references so I should probably start from Eccleston so I can get the full impact of the moment when the Doctor's eyes go very very wide and suddenly BAD WOLF BAD WOLF BAD WOLF

bluh I am actually going to miss Tennant - which is often said by people moving from Series 4 to 5, but in my case is said as I move from Series 4 to 1. Despite the weird loopiness of time, the show itself unfortunately doesn't like being attacked as a timey-wimey ball of stuff!

This is my Doctor Who summer.

wow sorry it took me so long to reply to this I've been moving in to college dorms etc

yeah man I watched them out of order and was similarly confused when bad wolf appeared everwhere, it took me a while to click that one in to place haha
I wish I'd watched them in order if only for the full impact of rose coming back! that must have been amazing.

have you finished what's out by now?

It's Rory's true devotion to Amy that makes one mad at the Doctor. I mean Rose looked in to the heart of the Tardis and almost ended up killing herself to keep the Doctor safe.

Where Rory living 2 thousand years ends up keeping his girl/wife and Rose only gets the Clone version. Fans may think that she should be happy about that but If I was Rose I wouldn't the (clone) may have one heart but he has some of Donna's personality I would think the clone would have identity crisis

I actually haven't come across Rose yet! My watching history was Blink + finale of Series 4 => Series 5 => pieces of Series 4 and 6. I started pretty erratically and am trying to watch as best I can, welp.

That's an interesting thing you're saying about Rose, though, and I'll try to keep it in mind when I meet her! I do agree with everything about Rory and Amy - "The Girl Who Waited" really cemented a lot of the feelings I had about the couple.

I used to think the Doctor was the hero of the show. And then, of course, we met Rory Williams.

That is the most excellent statement and I am going to repurpose that from now on into how I describe Rory Williams to everyone else. Thank you. :]

I've only made it as far as Series 5 so far and I personally think it seems a tad Gary-Stu-ish at times, but mostly I think love like that is a necessary human element in a show that's such a concentrated blend about aliens and science and supernatural things. With a love like Rory's, you remember how humans can be a worthwhile species.
