I love z and blu’s Hydra clone babies, especially 4 and 6, so here’s a quick doodle of the Evens. Hope I didn’t mess them up too much! (/.\ )

Oh, no apology necessary.
bluandorange: did you see this?
I’m just going to clutch this to my bosom and lay here dead for a while.
Reblogging this AGAIN in five minutes because…
Four and Eight. You captured Four and Eight PERFECTLY, like, Four is the kind of Steve who jumps out of buildings through the window with just the shield to land on, and Eight is the kind of kid who wears pieces of five different Halloween costumes and tries to figure out how said chimeric monster would work.
And Six and Twooie are just like, cheerfully shrugging behind them, because what can you do? That is what siblings are like.
YAY!! I’m glad you like it! \*0*/
I drew Eight as wearing a new dino hoodie that took hours of begging Five and Six to get them to make, wings inherited from Four, tiger tights from Five, and warm fuzzy slippers from Trip. Because most awesome superhero costume WHY NOT. (A dinosaur who can fly *and* pounce? YES PLEASE.)
I had a hard time with Two, though. There’s so much that Two keeps under control.
This is my confession. You must use it. Names, ships records, ports, people. Everything I remember is in here…. you must publish it… I couldn’t breath until I wrote this. ‘I once was blind, but now I see.’ Didn’t I write that too?
Yes, you did.
Well now at last, it’s true.

Davros: “Emergency Temporal Shift took him back into the Time War itself.”
Doctor: “But that’s impossible. The entire War is timelocked.”
Wilf: “But you said your people were dead. Past tense.”
Doctor: “Inside the Time War. And the whole War was timelocked. Like, sealed inside a bubble. It’s not a bubble but just think of a bubble. Nothing can get in or get out of the Timelock.”
The Time War was timelocked, not Gallifrey. In the case of The Day of the Doctor, it took a weapon of unimaginable power to allow the Doctor to enter it - the Moment, with so much potential for destruction that not even the timelords dared to use it.
In the case of Listen, none of this is actually relevant. Because the Doctor’s childhood precedes the Time War by what I assume must be a couple hundred years. It would not fall under the “bubble” of the timelock as it was established in The Stolen Earth and The End of Time.
This isn’t actually a plot hole.
This makes perfect sense to me. Still, if that’s the way we save the story, then how do we explain why the Doctor doesn’t just pop back in time somewhere on Gallifrey before the Time War whenever he gets lonely because he’s the last of his kind?
That’s what I would do if I were him…
Exactly. That’s the main issue I have with that simple explanation. Plus, Time Lords are time travellers. If Gallifrey’s past isn’t time locked, then why aren’t there still Time Lords all over the universe and everywhere in time and space? They could still travel from the past to… everywhere and everywhen. The Doctor wouldn’t really be alone. And other time travellers could land there. The Doctor could land there. He could warn them or whatever. Or he could save his family. Or at least go and see them.
How do we explain that then?
I don’t think he’s necessarily supposed to visit Gallifrey’s past and certainly not his own (some idiot turned off the safeguards after all), it’s just not technically impossible with regards to the timelock, as it’s been previously established on the show. (As in, it’s hardly my fault, but that’s how it’s been handled, consistently.)
Moreover, it would hardly be in character. The Doctor, by his very nature, doesn’t really look back. There is too much buried there and Gallifrey is really only one of these things. There are exceptions - like visiting Rose when he was about to regenerate - but I’d imagine he wouldn’t go back to Gallifrey for some of the same reasons he does not wander around time on a constant quest to catch glimpses at all the people he had lost… it would be infinitely more painful than the loneliness.
And he could hardly intervene in events or save people without running into some of the same issues as him and Rose in Father’s Day or River Song in The Wedding of River Song. There is such a thing as the web of time, the damage of which could potentially be catastrophic. And I’d imagine that the time war and the history of Gallifrey would very much be part of it, time locked or not time locked. (Clara comforting a small boy hardly counts as an intervention.)
I’d have to speculate about the time travelling time travellers - for all I know there have been “proper” explanations in the wider universe of Doctor Who. But the time lords do have the option of recalling every time lord that’s out there in the universe if the occasion calls for it (they did so in Sisters of the Flame) and the time lock was a very hand-wavey solution to that anyways. (Because would it truly be feasible that only two time lords - in that species of time travellers - end up on the outside of it?)
"You know when you see a photograph of someone you know, but it’s from years before you knew them. It’s like they’re not quite finished; they’re not done yet. Well, yes, the Doctor’s here. He came when I called just like he always does, but not "my" Doctor. Now, my Doctor, I’ve seen whole armies turn and run away, and he’d just swagger off back to his TARDIS and open the doors with a snap of his fingers. The Doctor in the TARDIS. Next stop: everywhere."
"He’ll never make a Time Lord…"
This moment in the Empty Child went exactly through my mind during tonight’s magical episode. I know some might hate it, but I adore how much Moffat has always hinted at the Doctor’s origins without revealing too much.
