The Last Great Time War (requested by anon)
With the exception of a very few survivors, the Time Lords and the Daleks disappeared from time and space. Gallifrey was destroyed in a silent flash as bright as a sun. Its annihilation was so profound it stretched deep into the past and far into the future. The Cruciform fell when Gallifrey was destroyed. The blast was so powerful the universe convulsed as planets, systems and galaxies were obliterated. (x)
#let’s not talk about this #let’s not talk about the planet populated by actual gods who could hold all of time and space in their hands #of a race that travesed dimensions with a skip and a jump and a laugh that echoed through universes #whose joy at their power curdled into greed #and of the doctor himself; the lonely violent god forced to look upon his own kind #the man who swallowed the abyss within himself with the knowledge that it would weigh within him for all eternity #who put out the stars before they burned out the rest of the galaxies (thymoss)
#forever in love with the rise and rise and terrible fall of the fêted empire of gallifrey #planet of the gods; of the timelords who controlled all of time and kept order throughout the galaxy; a planet of sweeping beauty and the he #height of civilization #plunged into blood and genocide and the actual platonic ideal of warfare; #a war that raged so wide it encompassed time itself; a war that threatened not just existence but memory in the most literal of ways #and the one time lord who took it inside himself and made of himself the most terrible #who destroyed everything; who scorched and salted the earth of his own race that the universe might rise from the ashes #the lonely terrible god #doctor who #no one man should have all that power #they blink and reality shivers (okayophelia)
has this been done before because if not is has been done now
Gallifrey rises… Gallifrey falls.
Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see

so I have NO idea if that comes even remotely close to what you wanted me to do… but it was kinda the only thing I could come up with your description *g*
This is beautiful and heartbreaking.
“The leaves on the trees were silver, and when they caught the light every morning, it looked like a forest on fire. When the autumn came, the breeze would blow through the branches like a song…”
Oh his face during this scene, and the people singing a hymn in the background…gets me every. single. time.
