Memories of Another World

Hey guys! My name's Bree, and this is my dumpster for anything that happens to be on my mind. Also, because it apparently needs to be said, I'm a woman. I am also a humanist.

This is a fandom blog, with some politics, social issues, and personal views/rants mixed in.

people don’t talk about The God Complex enough

like it literally examines all of Eleven’s biggest flaws

his vanity, his mask of ‘hyperactive five year old,’ his forgetfulness of the small things being just as important as the big picture and the big flashy things, his biggest fears…

and it really sums up Amy’s character arc

Her faith in the Doctor and in herself, and her character growth from relying on the Doctor (her “Imaginary Friend”) and being flighty to settling down and coming into herself as a person

"I stole your childhood and now I’ve led you by the hand to your death. But the worst thing is I knew. I knew this would happen. This is what always happens. Forget your faith in me. I took you with me because I was vain. Because I wanted to be adored. Look at you, glorious Pond. The Girl Who Waited for me. I’m not a hero. I really am just a madman in a box. And it’s time we saw each other as we really are. Amy Williams. It’s time to stop waiting."

People act like Eleven and Amy never went through any character growth

but they did

they went through so much of it

and The God Complex, for all its other faults, was an episode that showcased that growth magnificently, especially for Amy
