1. where are you from?

Rebekah. meh, it’s okay.
Anyone who also feels like answering these questions, as I always feel a bit weird singling people out :P
theheroheart replied to your post “Why Gallifrey returning is not in the best interest of anyone”
I’m like… Gallifrey returning is kind of a terrible idea while Moffat’s in charge… but if he leaves and this can be handled nicely, by someone not him, then I’m all for seeing more Gallifrey. Honestly I’m just waiting for him to leave.
So. am. I! Especially after the preview. I barely recognize the show anymore :( I mean, can you imagine the perspective people just getting into it are developing and what they think the Doctor is like? It’s absolutely heartbreaking.
But yes, I probably should have more specific in my post. I’m not against the idea of Gallifrey returning from a plot perspective if it was in the hands of someone who would properly use the event for epic character progression. Bloody hell it could be epic! Because the Doctor right now, with his careless attitude towards paradoxes and his brazen disregard for any of the laws of time and changing fixed points, is far more gone than Ten ever was as the Time Lord Victorious. At least Ten was aware of what he was doing and the disastrous consequences of the road he found himself on. Eleven is oblivious and imo has tipped over into Time Lord insanity and delusions that nothing is beyond his ability to manipulate and control. And it would be so brilliant to have the story arc where he does bring Gallifrey back with utterly disastrous consequences that he can not contain or control, and he finally realizes just how far he’s fallen.
That would be beyond incredible. But it would require complex character development that stretches across his entire life span, and we all know that Moffat is completely incapable of such a thing.
But no, all I was basically doing with my post was taking the POV of the Whoniverses and why it would be bad for them if Gallifrey was reintroduced into reality. And also the apparent and maddening misconception that it would be an intact Gallifrey that we would be getting to see.
So here’s the thing, I’ve seen a fair number of posts now stating reasons why it’s a good thing if/when Gallifrey returns. This concerns me because there were several reasons why Eleven wanting to bring war-time Gallifrey back was one of the most disturbing things in the episode, and those reasons are ones we should keep in mind and be very very afraid of Gallifrey returning.
The most important thing that seems to be forgotten, is that this is not Gallifrey as we know it in Classic Who that will be making a reappearance.
This is war-time Gallifrey.
This is end-of-The-Last-Great-Time-War Gallifrey.
A Gallifrey that still has Daleks everywhere on it, and gods knows what other nightmares.
A Gallifrey in rubble and destruction.
A Gallifrey where Rassilon still is. Remember him? Remember his plan to destroy the universe and the only things left would be the Time Lords as beings of nothing but conscious thought? Yeah, that Rassilon. The Rassilon who was so insane that even his top general basically outright said “Screw him” (and if you don’t know how significant this is in Time Lord society and the political/military setup, well, it is.).
A Gallifrey where Time Lords had become barely distinguishable from the Daleks (depending on your personal headcanon, this could be due to literal physical mutations thanks to repeated and unstable regenerations, or that they had become as merciless and brutal as the Daleks. The latter is my headcanon, btw).
So keeping in mind that it is this Gallifrey that the Doctor wants to reintroduce to the universes, let’s deconstruct why some of the most popular reasons I’ve seen for people being happy about Gallifrey being back, are actually some of the best reasons against such a thing happening.
David Tennant in Nativity 2 (4/5)
He’s totally a fan of morning canoodling.
Wonderful mycelebrityfantasy made me a festive seasonal icon.
And I can’t install it, because I am about that moronic when it comes to figuring out how to do it. I just spent an hour trying to figure how to change an icon in the “Customize” setting, and …. no idea. GRR!
You have it saved to your computer, yes? Okay, click on the “customize” button at the top of your dashboard. Then select the blog itself from the right-hand side of the screen (it should be under “apps”). Then click on “change avatar” which should be next to your current icon and under your blog title, and above the space where you can change you url. From there you should simply be able to choose a photo from your hard drive to upload.
Hope that helps and works for you! :)
