justastormie said: love your meta on Caretaker, and very much agree that the complete fucking complicated mess of their relationship (all three of them) is fantastic tv and i want more of it while bemoaning my poor broken heart. also wish there was more OT3 in fandom 'cause c'mon Caretaker was a GENIUS first step to OT3. Danny can make the Doctor confront his soldier issues and the Doctor helping Danny with his own guilt and regrets and MS. AND DR. AND MR. OSWALD. (and poor danny surrounded by tsundre)
HEY LET’S TALK ABOUT OT3
No you know what’s terrifying is how I can see an OT3 kind of relationship working out here, but mostly in the sense that Clara is the crux of that relationship and the two boys fight over her and yes indeed they are Mr. and Mrs. and Dr. Oswald and everyone wonders why the caretaker is hanging around the English and the math teacher and the only person who has an inkling of what’s going on is Courtney. Who do I call.
I have an utter fascination with this idea of the petite and unassuming Clara having these two six-foot-something guys, one an ex-soldier and one a damn alien who resembles a stick insect, at her beck and call. Like, how does that even happen. Okay, well, it happens because the two are hopelessly in love with her but show it in very different ways.
I’m going to be upset if we get one of those “make her choose” scenarios because I’m sitting here like TAKE THE THIRD OPTION, EAT BOTH YOUR BOYFRIEND CAKES CLARA
