The Slow Path - Doctor Who by aimeekitty The Slow Path - Doctor Who by aimeekitty
So the first episode of Doctor Who that I ever saw was "The Girl in the Fireplace". My friends chose it to show me because of my love for ballgowns. (their plan worked!)
I know a lot of people don't like GITF for various plot reasons, or dislike the DW character of Madame de Pompadour, but I think the episode is very beautiful and poignant.

So here's a what if for "the slow path".

inspired of course by the François Boucher painting of Madame de Pompadour.

This is such a fun idea, I looked at it next to the real portrait and you did a great job being faithful to the original but also having her look like the actress. Fabulous!

I love Reinette sooooooooo much! Even if I like Rose and the Doctor, I think it would be so great if she could have really traveled with them! It would be funny and amazing! XDD~

Also, I love all of your drawings sooo much! Congratulations for such great drawing style!! :love:

I LOVE this episode. I just started the series like a month ago. Netflix I adore it. And I went BACK and re-watched this episode.

I SO much want to make a roleplay character with a splash of her character in it. And also... Renette (Rennet? How would they spell that?) is just such a PRETTY NAME!

He looks so bored, like he's thinking, "Read this book 10 times now." I liked that episode. :D One of my favorites I think. ^_^

Aw, this is my favorite episode! Reinette has such a vast well of understanding of the Doctor, and his world...and also a great amount of regret for being a creature only of her own world. So heartbreaking, so very very beautiful.

I'm glad you drew such a wonderful picture to accompany their story :)

the girl in the fireplace is by far my favourite episode of season two. sophia myles is wondeful, and her and tennant work so well together (as they should they were engaged at the time).
ahhh i just love it!!!! this drawing is lovely. as are all the doctor who related ones!
