"… 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)
omg nili nails it right here

*not even a whovian* *claps*

Did homestuck just jack this post?!
… didn’t they all DESTROY their universe? sorry homestuck you are so far out of the running for saving things
Batman had a few buildings destroyed before he saved Gotham.
Luke Skywalker had a few planets destroyed before he saved the Galaxy
Homestuck has a few universes destroyed before they save THE WHOLE OF REALITY AND THE INFINITY FROGIVERSES AND ANCIENT HORRORS THAT LIVE IN IT.
