#this is why i love eleven’s era so goddamn much #it’s such a deliberate take on stories and fairytales and mythology #constructing fantastic stories around people/events and then tearing them down brick by brick #my god i could wax poetic just about eleven’s arc #breaking him down from a god/goblin/trickster/warrior image to someone who was merely a stepping stone in the thing that CAUSED his arc #it wasn’t even ABOUT him in the end #he really was just a story #because stories are always bigger than reality #elaborate and fantastical and built up by so many people #while the truth at the center is usually so much smaller and more personal #i love it #i love how meta and self-aware it is (via officialstephencolbert)
