Refurbishing the Tardis by Alda-Rana
 This drawing’s idea comes from raineszramski , who noticed the new bookshelves in the Tardis console room in the series 8 trailers and imagined the Doctor going to Ikea.
(Maybe it would help if he used another screwdriver - Ikea furniture is mostly made of wood after all)

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.

Fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gifts of seeing the world through their eyes. Fiction is a lie that tells us true things, over and over.

Barkers for Britain Tag 

Before America entered World War II, Fala served as president of Barkers for Britain, a nationwide effort by American dog lovers to support nonmilitary aid to Britain. Membership in the club helped support Bundles for Britain, an organization that collected cash contributions and donations of clothing, blankets, and other basic necessities for the British people. The organization presented membership tags like this one to dog owners who contributed to British war relief.

As president of Barkers for Britain, Fala received letters from around the nation, including this note (with photograph) from “Cire Noir Butler,” head of the group’s Austin, Texas, branch.

-from the Roosevelt Library 

Fala makes an appearance in our archival episode on historical pooches, from the Katie and Candace era.

He does not despise real woods because he has read of enchanted woods: the reading makes all real woods a little enchanted. This is a special kind of longing. The boy reading the fairy-tale desires and is happy in the very fact of desiring.

I owned this as a child, so I was constantly looking for an enormous whale whenever we drove through coastal Georgia and South Carolina. I was convinced it was out there, and I was also always very curious about what went on in Minnesota exactly.

If James lived in perpetual anxiety, battling fears no one else could see, how did he find peace? Or was that the reason he wanted a garden? Maybe he was searching for some corner of the universe to control. If so, he was looking in the wrong place. Gardening was never about control.
