For what it's worth her name, Oswin, means God's friend and Oswald, God's power. What of Vastra's comment that perhaps the universe does make bargains?
Heck, I did the name-etymology thing back in post #3 of this thread. The meaning of "Oswald" I found was "divine ruler," and I put forth the admittedly unlikely notion that "Clara Oswald," "bright divine ruler," could tie into "White Guardian" somehow.
Maybe, I'd like that better than she's a Time Lord, though I would rather something other than Guardian's, too. I'd wondered, with Egyptian Goddess's in Oblisks, and Nefertiti, if Moffat might have gotten some inspiration from Egyptian Myth rather than recycle a past character or concept?
We are quicksilver, a fleeting shadow, a distant sound... our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass. We live in music, in a flash of color... we live on the wind and in the sparkle of a star! Endora, Bewitched
