In my culture, we believe that when you die your spirit has to climb a mountain carrying the souls of everyone you wronged in your lifetime. Imagine the weight I will have to lift. The monsters I created, the people they killed. Can you see now why I fear death?
They’re you. They’re what you become if you destroy Gallifrey. The man who regrets and the man who forgets. The moment is me. You have to decide.
Whatever happens today, will change future events, create its own timeline, its own reality. The future pivots around you. Here. Now.
bless you for making a sad scene into a funny one
