clara’s outfit appreciation post
#okay#so in one little exchange#edmund shuts down miraz’s attempt to patronize him#corrects his knowledge#states that he is king and thus miraz’s equal#makes a witty joke about his title of the Just that sails right over miraz’s head#humbly affirms peter’s higher authority#and finishes off by making miraz look like an idiot#in under a minute he reverses and takes control of the entire discussion#as easily and casually as if he’s having a chat with reepicheep#lewis says that he was the diplomat-king#and my headcanon is that he was head of narnian espionage as well#because look at this boy#how he dances with words#how he masters men three times his age#and tell me he wouldn’t be absolutely LETHAL
that’s my boy.
Clara Oswald in series eight episode four, “Listen”
(Also requested by s-sei and an anon!)
She sees it sometimes, out of the corner of her eye, that flicker of color, the thread of fate that is supposed to lead her to her soulmate. Always, she’ll reach out with trembling fingers, to try and grasp it, only to see it flicker away, slipping through her grasp like a summer breeze. Her uncle tells her not to worry – it just means ‘not yet’, little Cat – and she knows she shouldn’t, that Lysa hasn’t even started seeing those flickers, no matter how sadly she may look at Petyr, but she can’t help but be impatient.
She wonders if he sees those flickers, too – whoever he may be. Is he as curious about her as she is about him, as impatient to meet, for their lives to begin?
When she meets Brandon Stark, she wants it to be true, and for a little while she thinks it may be. The thread appears more substantially now; silver-gold in color, and she can wrap her fingers around it and even give a little tug, but after a few feet it disappears into the nether, leading to nowhere. When Brandon kisses her, his mouth hot and insistent on hers, she grasps the thread between her fingers and pulls, but he doesn’t react, doesn’t notice; it isn’t him, it isn’t quite right.
Across the room, Brandon’s brother looks up, his gaze meeting hers over Brandon’s shoulder before his eyes slip away, embarrassed.
