Y’know, Clara Oswald’s appeared in nine episodes now, but Rory’s ninth episode was The Impossible Astronaut, and at that point we knew much, much less about him than we know about Clara now. We’d only seen him at work once, we hadn’t even met his dad yet, and he barely passed a reverse Bechdel test: virtually all his conversations were about Amy.
And I love Rory. I love him to pieces. But guess how many people I saw calling him ‘boring’ or ‘bland’ or ‘barely even a character’ back then? If you guessed zero, you’re absolutely right.
A cornucopia of Companions.

The Doctor: Personal question?
Rory: Seriously? You?
The Doctor: Do you ever remember it? Two thousand years waiting for Amy? The Last Centurion.
The Doctor: Are you lying?
Rory: Of course I’m lying.
The Doctor: Of course you are. Not the sort of thing anyone forgets.
Rory: But I don’t remember it all the time. It’s like this door in my head. I can keep it shut.

Latest Painting - “The Boy Who Waited” (Rory Williams / Doctor Who - Gouache / Watercolor pencil on Bristol board)
"The Doctor said the universe was huge and ridiculous and sometimes there were miracles. I could do with a ridiculous miracle about now."
Finished! The original will go up on the eBays around noon-ish today (running out right now to get a frame), prints will be available shortly after that. I’ll post links and whatnot right here.
Thank you for your kind words and things, as always!
Doctor Who valentines part two! :)
Together, or not at all. It’s called marriage.
I waited. 2,000 years, I waited for you.
speedy Rory because he breaks my heart.
also, thanks to my lovely roommate for doing the lettering, because my handwriting is illegible. <3
