*sensitive poet mood lighting*
u know it
the lighting of the place i was sitting hit mAXIMUM ARTSY SELFIE MODE and i couldn’t resist
it’s like ebola: contagious, burns through, only about a 15% chance of getting away from it, and causes great pain and copious amount of blood being spilled
okay but hear me out
the thing under the sheets and outside of the spaceship was totally this universe’s version of the sound creature from scherzo (or possibly even the original one)
the episode started out talking about evolution, which is the entire point of scherzo. the sound creature eveolved to be entirely invisible, just composed of sound, which could definitely qualify as the doctor’s “perfect hider”
it’s also made entirely out of sound, and since it told the doctor that he should “listen” to it to understand, this would make sense
it’s bound to (created by?) already living individuals, like the sound creature. the fact that it exists at a point in time where there’s supposed to be no life seems to make this even more evident. in the same way that scherzo’s sterile experiment was ruined by the introduction of life and, consequently, sound, so was life introduced to the desolate universe, and then a creature who seems to only exist of sound pops up
although it’s only sound, the creature from scherzo could manipulate things physially, as shown by the way it devours the dead organisms. in a similar method, the creature from “listen” could change the shape of a blanket and tear apart a spaceship
i’m not saying it was the sound creature from scherzo but it was totally the sound creature from scherzo

TACO NEEDS TO KEEP HIS LITTLE MOUTH SHUT
So is this how it works, Doctor? You never interfere in the affairs of other peoples or planets, unless there’s children crying.
soft gentle compassionate hopeful boys in fiction are so important
whNE YOU HAVE A RLLY GOOD LINE BUT IT’S USING MODERN DAY COMPARISONS AND UR WRITING FANFICTION FOR A FANDOM THAT DOESN’T INVOLVE IT
