oh dear

I seem to have 3 stories in progress and a new-ish fandom. Are any of you into the Twelfth Doctor at all? Does fandom still exist here or has it all gone away?
There's definitively still fandom going on on my flist though not as much as there used to be. I'm enjoting 12 and finding him to have a very strong and consistent series so far. The abuse and lies and co-dependance betwewn him and Clara is getring a bit wearing though. It'
S so far not been wnough to turn me off but i do hope ir is resolved in the finale
I suspect the lies & co-dependence are the focus of the character arc this season, which is working out so far to be the most interesting one I've seen in NuWho. Especially nice since it follows a really weak season with a very inconsistent characterization of Clara. The writers have figured her out now & Coleman is a good actor, so it's going somewhere. And I think Capaldi is the best actor in the role since McCoy (nod to Tennant), so if they get can the writing right it'll be brilliant.

Or so I hope. Moffat doesn't have a good track record with observing the emotional consequences of his storylines.
I'm with you. I'm worried that the character arc won't have a good resolution to make up for the discomfort its causing while watching... but that discomfort itself is a sign that I care about these characters and they are having an emotional impact. This has amazing potential and I hope it realizes it.

I also think that both actors are brilliant and form one of the strongest casts, talent-wise, ever seen on the show.
