I'll Tell You a Story by The-Longfall-of-1979 I'll Tell You a Story by The-Longfall-of-1979
"A man tells his stories so many times that he becomes the stories. They live on after him, and in that way he becomes immortal. Okay then. That's what I'll do; I will tell you a story. "


I wept like a monster, I tip my hat to Steven Moffat, Matt Smith, and the rest of the cast and crew. It hurt like the dickens and It was a beautiful sendoff.

More arts to come, but I had to get this out of my feeels system. If you'd like this released as a print please show some interest in the comments. :)

"Okay then. That's what I'll do. I'll tell you a story. Can you hear them? All these people who lived in terror of you and your... judgement; all these people whose ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves, to you? Can you hear them singing? Oh you like to think that you're a god! You're not a god. You're just a parasite eaten out with the jealousy and envy and longing for the lives of others. You FEED on them; on the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow, so! So... come on then. Take mine. Take. my. Memories. But I hope you've got a big appetite because I've lived a long life and I've seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out; moment by moment until nothing remained; no time. No space. Just me! I've walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a MAD MAN! And I've watched universes freeze and creations burn! I have seen things you wouldn't believe! I have lost things you will NEVER understand! And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken! Knowledge that will make parasite gods BLAZE! SO COME OOOON THEN! TAKE IT! TAKE IT ALL, BABY! HAVE IT! YOU! HAVE! IT! ALL!!

One of my favorite 11 moments Moffat and Smith knocked this out of the park

This is fantastic, I love this style  a lot, it's simple, but powerful. I actually strongly prefer this over the collage style that's been appearing lately.

It's a beautiful picture, really love the detail.
If I could get the money I would definitely buy this as a canvas print. ^^

Beautiful piece! :D I feel your pain - I will miss Eleven sorely. Matt had an undeniable charisma, yet severity which added a whole new depth to the character. While I'm willing to give Capaldi a shot, Matt will always be my Doctor.
