Classic Whovian in-jokes are the greatest.

It’s funny seeing Doctor Who deal with things that were made canon in the classic era because no one thought the show would last long enough to have to deal with them.
Like it’s much easier to have the Doctor spawn an evil version of himself between 12 and 13 when you’re only on your sixth Doctor and it looks like the show won’t last another week.
Sometimes I can’t stop thinking about how Zuko accidentally spoke against his father and begged for forgiveness, on his knees with tears in his eyes, and got half his face burned off and banished from his home
Then Zuko betrayed his uncle and everything Iroh had ever taught him, begged for forgiveness on his knees with tears in his eyes, and got a hug and complete forgiveness and unconditional love
The Ultimate Time Lord: Peter’s like the annoyed older brother, Sylv and Colin are the troublesome middle children who can’t shut up, and Paul’s the kid brother who watches the ridiculous antics of his siblings with rapt attention.
So what if I just casually crossed over Discworld and Homestuck. What if that was a thing I did.
Equius and Terezi as Ankh-Morpork’s finest. They let Equius use the Piecemaker when Detritus is off-duty. He gets really enthusiastic about it. Also, Terezi serially adopts dragons from the Sunshine Sanctuary and is utterly devastated every time one blows up. That is like the fifth or sixth Lemonsnout she’s holding.
Angua is a little put-out about Terezi because… She’s not jealous, really, it’s nice to have a break and all, but being The Nose of the Watch was. Well. It was her thing. They eventually overcome their differences (possibly with homoerotic mud-wrestling, which is then cemented as a theme in Angua’s life) and become an unstoppable, colour-sniffing duo of terror.
Terezi and Carrot quote The Laws and Ordinances of Ankh-Morpork at each other constantly. Terezi is the only other person who knows the book by heart.
