Snarky Eloquence

I think this is it.

I think this is my favorite post on tumblr.

I’m sorry but no.  People grossly misinterpret this line of Clara’s, because they assume it’s actually Clara that it applies to.  But the great thing about Clara’s arc in s7 is that it actually completely pushes away the idea that she was born as some special resurrecting entity meant to protect the Doctor.  In the end, we discover that Clara is in fact a normal woman who decided to do something extraordinary.  That’s really what makes a lot of DW characters so amazing.  Their decisions.  And Clara’s no exception.  

The line “I was born to save the Doctor” applies to the various duplicates of Clara created and sent into various points in time.  They were literally born to save the Doctor, but they were born out of Clara’s mind.  She did something spectacular fully on her own, and they were just the result.  

The line is not meant to hold Clara above other characters as some special entity destined for the Doctor.  Clara’s arc disproves assumptions made by the Doctor as well as the audience.  In the end, the show tells us all that an ordinary woman is more than enough, because ordinary people always do amazing things.

Clara was not born to save the Doctor.  Clara was just selfless enough to save him, and extraordinary enough to succeed.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
