#You know what I love about Vastra? #how ACCEPTING she is #even though she’s a far more advanced race #with psychic powers and unknown intelligence #she’s learned to love people and aliens for who they are and not for what they lack #instead of ignoring Clara or discounting her interest in what she assumed were advertisements #Vastra acknowledges Clara and engaged her in conversation #she could have easily rolled her eyes or #changed the subject to something else #or just looked down on her because she COULD #but she doesn’t #she meets her on her level #and that’s what she did with Jenny #and Strax #and that’s how a rejected lizard woman found a family… #Vastra could have easily become a bitter reptilian for everything she had gone through #shunned #called deformed… #but instead #through her suffering #she chose empathy (via riveralwaysknew)

don’t people realize amy and clara don’t NEED the doctor to tell them they’re brilliant because they’ve probably never thought otherwise?

there’s nothing wrong with self-assured characters and amy and clara are flawed in different ways. clara knows she’s great and capable and intelligent and brave. she doesn’t NEED the doctor to tell her that. amy’s insecure but she’s AWARE of her strengths. her insecurity comes from people abandoning her, not from a lack of self-worth or confidence in her abilities

it wouldn’t make sense for clara and amy to suddenly call themselves useless or rubbish because they KNOW that’s not true. their worth isn’t based on what the doctor thinks of them and that’s okay.
