The question is: is this going to be Capaldi’s new catchphrase

Okay everyone sit down I’m gonna write a thing on your gifset sorry.

This is something my uncle and I touched on.

My g’father is an engineer and if you ask him any sort of technical question — like ask him ‘How does this work?’ — he goes ‘That’s not the question you should be asking. The question you should be asking is …’ Like without fail. He will almost never answer the question you asked directly. He will make you ask him different questions until you arrive at the point you need to be at.

A LOT of the mannerisms 12 has dished out so far are in line with sort of the stereotypical engineer mentality (I say this having been raised by one and also knowing that, despite being a creative, I have the ‘engineer gene’). This, the sense of his intelligence exceeding his headspace (the chalk scene), the way his version of caring comes across as being somehow simultaneously callous and clueless (‘I don’t want you to change’) … These are all already Doctor-y things, but the way they’re executed is so familiar to me because I grew up with this.

12’s a frickin’ engineer. You’ve all been warned.

There’s this girl at my school and she’s really nice and I remember sometime last year at one point she would carry a clicker around and click it everytime she had a happy thought/something good happened/she laughed etc.
It was always kind of cute how you’d just hear the little click every once in a while throughout class it always made me smile knowing that it was bc something made her feel happy idk

she was training herself to be happy oh my god

     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”
