aka “Elitism is my middle name”

lol the doctor literally fled his home planet because his people were ‘ridiculously civilised’ asshats

this is the man who scraped through his final exams in the academy with just 51% on his second attempt, i doubt education is his top priority

Honestly, Reinette is EVERYTHING the Doctor fled from when he left Gallifrey.  The whole social hierarchy, cutthroat politics,  and arrogance of the royal world is exactly what he disliked about Gallifrey.  The Doctor (at least Ten, at that point) is about helping people, but a king’s mistress is bred for only helping herself.

I fell for her like Troy fell to the Greeks; quickly, and in the most embarrassing way imaginable.

I’m guessing you’re referring to the incident with the horse, but that came at the end of a war that lasted 10 years. Speed is relative, but if it takes you ten years to fall for someone, I would not call that ‘quickly’.

I fell for her like Troy fell to the Greeks: slowly, then all at once, and with the aid of a giant livestock model
