Sherlock is actually the Doctor, but he doesn’t remember.
You remember in Family of Blood, where the Doctor turned himself human? He sealed all of his memories into the pocket watch? Well, the Doctor did the same thing again, except he used a cell phone to seal his memories — the same one Sherlock uses daily.
John was his companion. He created a whole history for himself, and made his “friend” introduce him to Sherlock — the Doctor. That’s why he had such trouble finding an apartment — because he didn’t know anyone, because he didn’t really live in London, he never really went to war.
If you have anything to add, please reblog it and give your ideas.
1. Smile. A lot. And then smile some more on top of that. Practice your smile, don’t let it get rusty and out of shape. Smile at everyone, even if they don’t smile back. Especially if they don’t smile back. If someone gets annoyed at your smiling, smile bigger.
2. Talk. Whenever you find yourself next to someone, start a conversation. This includes people at the gas station, on the bus next to you, in an audition hall, or in line at the supermarket. Start a conversation by introducing yourself. This helps them to feel like you’re not a random stranger, and indicates that you’re interested in a real relationship, rather than just making a random comment and moving on.
3. Make eye contact. Guess what? People aren’t robots, or cars, or vegetables. Each one is an individual. See them as that, rather than rushing past, trying hard to be invisible. Greet everyone as an individual as much as possible. When you’re walking down the street or the grocery aisle make eye contact, smile and nod, as though greeting an old friend. Your smile is wasted if no one sees it.
4. Be helpful. Did someone drop their bag four aisles down from you? Be the first one there to help pick it up! When a child is lost and crying, don’t rush past, stop and help. Do you notice trouble going on? Don’t stand back like a curious spectator; see if there is something you can do to help sort it out.

“…tick tock, goes the clock, even for the Doctor.”
“She’s like Wendy in ‘Peter Pan’, she’s wearing a big silly nightie and a dressing gown and slippers. She returns to her childhood, on the night before her wedding, the night she’s supposed to grow up. She’s flown off with Peter Pan to have an amazing, mad adventure on a fairytale ship.”
I usually don’t reblog GIF’s en masse, but I had to this time because this is brilliant. :D (I recently read Peter Pan and the connection is definitely there.)
I’m very sorry to the artist that I don’t know who to attribute this to - I found it randomly without attribution online! If anyone knows, please let me know!
Thank you to sir-emeth who gave me this link for attribution! http://doctorwho.livejournal.com/6288392.html
This is a very old piece I did like three months ago for testing Pro Markers. At first I wanted this to be just the Doctor next to his TARDIS like the picture I took as reference, but then I thought that since I had so many red, yellow and orange markers, Gallifrey would made a perfect background for my drawing. So this is the melancholy Doctor thinking to his land, Gallifrey. I hope you like it!
It is credited with my deviantART nickname, as always! ;)
Wow. I wanna be able to draw like this someday… even though it’s not quite the manga style I adore. XD
Or, how to be the Doctor to other people around you. :)
