Day 5 - Favorite Fairy Type - Spritzee
Not the greatest scan, and not the greatest drawing…but I actually am kind of proud of this quick little doodle.
And what’s not to love about Spritzee? Tiny pink plague bird Pokemon.
I might color this one later if I can.

Okay. So. I decided to try that Pokemon Drawing Challenge Thing. But I can’t draw. At all. I also have no drawing software so all drawings I do will be done on printer paper in pencil and then scanned into my computer.
Here are some catch up pics!
Day 1, Favorite Bug Type: Genesect (Super complicated why is my favorite bug Genesect whyyy)
Day 2, Favorite Dark Type: Umbreon (Couldn’t get anything about it to look right…)
Day 3, Favorite Dragon Type: Latias (I’m actually super pleased with Latias’s face here, though the rest of it…ehhhhh)
Day 4, Favorite Electric type: Minun (so…I don’t really have a favorite Electric type, but I do love Minun. Also I have no idea what happened when I tried to draw him what the hell even is that)
Since the Pokeddex challenge for December was outdated with the XY inclusion, I have created an updated version of this challenge to include X and Y. All the rules are the same as the original one, we’ve just added a Y to the end of that tag! #POKEDDEXY

im finally getting the recognition i deserve
If Moffat’s intention with “Day of the Doctor” was that the Doctor had never destroyed Gallifrey to begin with, he really messed up. Because there’s no indication in the actual episode itself that this is what had always happened. Actually, almost everything in the special itself suggests the exact opposite.
THE MOMENT: They’re you. They’re what you become if you destroy Gallifrey.
Right there, she straight up says she plucked Ten and Eleven from a future in which the Doctor had done the thing she was trying to talk him out of.
ELEVEN: You were the Doctor more than anyone else. You were the Doctor when it wasn’t possible to get it right. But this time, you don’t have to do it alone.
Because last time, he was alone. Last time, he didn’t have anyone to stop him. Hell, even with two other Doctors with him, Gallifrey was still going to burn. It was Clara who prevented it. That Moffat interview suggests that the Doctor could never have blown up those kiddies on Gallifrey in the first place because he’s just not that kind of guy (*cough*Pompeii*cough*), but all three Doctors were totally going to do it.
THE DOCTOR (I can’t remember which one, sorry): You’re not saying we change our personal history?
I just don’t see how “Gallifrey never fell in the first place” can be the correct interpretation, given that pretty much everything in the special suggests otherwise.
"Gallifrey Falls No More?" Only makes a lick of sense if, once, Gallifrey didfall, but now it falls no more.
In order to believe that this is what had always happened, it requires you to believe that the Doctor had a gap in his memory between acquiring the Moment and Gallifrey suddenly being gone, and assumed that he’d done it. You have to believe that every single instance of the Doctor saying something like, “I saw it happen. I made it happen,” was him just assuming that, hey Gallifrey’s gone, so it must have been him wot done it, right?
Or that the Doctor has a false memory of having pressed the Big Red Button, because reasons.
But when the three Doctors are all going their separate ways at the end, War and Ten are stated to be about to forget saving Gallifrey because of the “time streams.”
Yes. Exactly. The time streams where a future in which Gallifrey has been destroyed is now a future in which it never was, and because the only way to save it was for the men who’d originally destroyed it to have second thoughts, causality was preserved by the original timeline erasing their memories of the now-altered past. Timey-wimey indeed, but not nearly as contrived as the idea that this has always been some kind of stable time loop.
(That Moffat interview really is odd, because he’s so unambiguous about this being the One True History, and that’s not not even slightly supported by the text. I wonder if there was a bit of executive meddling with his script to prevent him invalidating the last eight years of the show.)
Personally, I liked the special. But I liked it under the condition that it was about redemption, not exculpation. Redemption is a great story. Exculpation is cheap.
Yeah, I keep seeing this interpretation touted as the correct one, I guess for the reasons outlined here, and it is one I like much better, because it makes at least some lick of sense. But when you have the showrunner himself going on about how the Doctor ~would never~ (supposedly), it makes it hard for me to believe this interpretation is the right one. I guess it will depend going forward how they play it, but I don’t really expect any consistency on this point, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn Gallifrey’s always been hangin’ around throughout New Who in some future episode.
^^ The Gallifrey that we will eventually visit has been hanging around all throughout New Who, since the Doctor interfered with his personal timeline to make it so… however, at the time of our watching New Who, Gallifrey wasn’t there. Both interpretations are true.
In the Doctor’s original timeline, he really pressed the button and Gallifrey was really gone. But in going back and changing the War Doctor’s mind, the Doctor created a new timeline (or dimension, if you will) in which Gallifrey had been there all along. He, and we as viewers, are living in that dimension now. The existence of the original timeline makes the 50th story about redemption, not exculpation, as the OP said… but it also allows for the Time Lords when we meet them to be all like, “lol Doctor what were you even doing in the lei that one time.”
Was this Moffat’s intent? God knows. But I like this explanation because it’s pretty much going to hold up no matter how he plays the Time Lords. And it’s congruent with the many-worlds interpretation of actual theoretical physics (which Doctor Who has already embraced á la Pete’s World.)

So I don’t know why I was thinking about this but I was and it was making me laugh so
I remember last year Anna had gotten into the habit of doing the finger-gun thing, you know, the this thing:
but was really exasperated about it.
So one day at lunch there were like, nine of us sitting around a small table and Anna said something and did the finger gun thing and then groaned.
And so someone said, “You did the thing again, didn’t you?” because we had stopped noticing when she did it for the most part and she nodded.
But then Ariel said “Did what thing?” and THE OTHER EIGHT OF US ALL JUST TURNED TO HER AND DID THE FINGER GUN THING SIMULTANEOUSLY AND WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING.
It was hysterical, we devolved into uproarious laughter, Ariel may have been a bit frightened.
I dunno if anyone else remembers that. Or if anyone who wasn’t there cares. But it cheered me up remembering it. So.
