kaffyr: Clara looks determined (Clara sees)

In praise of [personal profile] flowsoffire 

She wrote an excellent essay, positing some of the possible underpinnings of Clara's thought processes and actions in S08,  in a series of responses to one of my posts, and having just reread it (It's in three parts),  I wanted to let anyone know who hadn't read it (and many of you probably have), that they should go and read it. Clara hasn't always been well-treated by writers this season, and I think Azzie has written an excellent and acceptable Watsonian take on the hows and the whys of Clara's actions.

What are you waiting for? Go on! Shoo!.

I don't know what more the writers could possibly do to perfect her characterization. She's shaped the Doctor's _entire life_, she's capable of pretty much _everything_ he is capable of, she turns the Doctor/Companion dynamic completely on it's head with her sheer _existence_... and she's still a thoroughly human woman, with human insecurities, who makes human mistakes and needs some reassurance from her boyfriend now and then. How can you even add to what has been shown? What else do people want?

I look forward to your thoughts. I want to understand it from your PoV but I'm just not getting it.

It's 1am and I just woke up, lol.

Oh goodness, I just fell off my chair ♥♥♥ I don't have words. Haha, I'm just really humbled and honoured you were so impressed with the thoughts, I had the feeling it was basically me talking to myself and trying to figure things out as I went along… XD Thank you. ♥♥♥
