general opinions: hhhhhhh iunno like Clara’s cool in theory but she’s one of those characters where I feel like they could have been so much more? It just feels like she was made into that “strong woman” character to the point where there’s not much to her… and like her initial arc of “who is clara oswald” turned not into who she is but instead yet another thing that revolves around the doctor (and amy was the same wayyyy which also made me sad because i liked her and why the fuck did they continue the uncertainty between amy and rory so long that was way overplayed and kind of demeaning to both of them in assuming that even their love was overshadowed by the doctor like i get that it could be explained in universe but out of universe WHY WOULD YOU WRITE THAT ok anyway) no but really “who is clara” “she’s the girl that saves the doctor” now hold on there that doesn’t DEFINE her in an in universe sense she’s a fucking person except out of universe nope not really
yeah ok I have to agree about a lot of this, but I still rly like Clara despite the writing deficiencies. the “girl who saves the doctor” thing is a bullshit way to define anybody, but I kind of see it as a “who is Clara [to me]?” situation than a “CLARA WHO ARE YOU UNVEIL YOUR INNERMOST BEING OH SHIT IT’S ABOUT ME” situation. iunno bro.
(also the Amy/Rory horseshit in Asylum of the Daleks was just that. HORSE. SHIT.)@5 days ago with 8 notes
