22. Raised on Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. It kind of exploded from there.
“Don’t worry because I’m going to fight them off.”
During the Nerd HQ “Conversations for a Cause” with Matt, Karen, and Arthur
I love this, so very very much.
Some people would say something sly and patronizing to this girl, and make all the grown-ups laugh. “Ohhh the weeping angels are sooo scary bla bla blah.” But Matt asks this young lady if she’s scared, and she’s honest, and he sees the seriousness in her - because she believes this stuff, it’s part of her universe! And he goes into that universe with her, and tells her the truth from her perspective. He doesn’t say “It’s all pretend, sweetie, there’s nothing to be scared of,” or “Those silly weeping angels can’t hurt you,” or “The Doctor’s got it covered,” or dismiss her in any way. He steps into her world, and promises her that she’ll be safe in a language that she understands.
In my opinion this is the dictionary definition of respecting someone else’s beliefs. You win, Matt. You win so damn hard.
i think this is my favourite post on tumblr
Times when you’ve probably encountered the Silence and forgotten:
-Any time you’ve walked into a room and forgotten what you went in there for.
-When the dog barks at nothing.
-Any time you’ve experienced deja vu.
-Whenever you hear the floorboards creek in an empty house.
-When the cat stares at the corner of the room.
-Whenever you’re alone and feel like you’re being watched.
-Anytime you’ve lost your train of thought for no reason.
