Nyssa of Traken. Classic Doctor Who.
I JUST FOUDN THIS AND I JUS T
"Nyssa? It’s really you! Look at you, not aged a day. ‘suppose that’s time travel for you."
"Yes..yes, it is me. Well, honestly, I can’t say you haven’t changed, Doctor. What’s brought you here? Not lost, I hope? Certainly your navigational system should be fixed by now?”
The Doctor has observed that his people “enjoy making speeches” and have an “infinite capacity for portention”. The Time Lord penchant for ceremony extends to their technology, with various artifacts given weighty names like the Hand of Omega, the Eye of Harmony or the Key of Rassilon.
Send me a ‘♥’ if your muse has ever wanted to punch my muse in the face.
"Honestly, you have every right to, but we both know I won’t let that happen."
“If and when I wanted to do so, you wouldn’t be able to stop me. You’re just lucky I would not lower myself to your level.”
Wow, I just literally unfollowed 150 people who had been inactive for 4 months or more.
No wonder I can’t get RPs going on here, everyone I followed that followed me has quit or moved on. I need new RP blood.
Yeeah, I made an other palette :)!

- "Watch out!"
- "You could have been killed!"
- "Run! Hurry up, go!"
- "Save yourself, I’ll hold them back."
- "Leave me here! Go! Hurry! I can handle it."
- "I promise I’ll make sure they don’t hurt you."
- "They better not have laid a damn finger on you or I’ll [insert threat]."
- "I swear, if they so much as breathe next to you, I’ll knock them out.”
- "I’m not leaving you here!"
- "And let you get yourself killed?"
- "Are you crazy?"
- "Are you hurt anywhere?"
- "I don’t trust him/her. They seem off."
- "I’m saying this for your own good!"
- "Don’t worry. I’ll protect you."
- "I don’t want to lose you! You’re all I have left!"
Look at this. Look at this.
Here’s Nyssa, everyone’s fave little Trakenite princess/scientist/all-‘round sweetie. She’s not just Nyssa, in fact; here, she’s Lady Nyssa, because she’s part of the nobility of Traken.
She’s not always as sweet and meek as some would have you believe, and we learned it here before we’d seen her occasionally wield weapons or lose her temper or any of that.
Nyssa’s from a family that’s important in the Traken Union. She’s been raised around power. She knows how it works. She knows what a few words or a little extra money can do. She knows how to handle people, and she knows about control of herself and others.
She could have been someone to fear, could have possibly done some real damage to the universe. She could have let the evil she encountered, the evil that touched her, turn her into something as dark as itself. Instead, thanks to her own good heart and her travels with the Doctor, her knowledge of that evil made her stronger, better. It made her pretty damn selfless.
When you’re tempted to compare companions, tempted to refer to a certain branch of them as “brainless screamers,” do not include Nyssa in that branch. She belongs right up there with the strongest, bravest, brightest companions.
Fear for what she could have become, and then marvel at what she did with all the power that was contained in her.
