    Doctor Who: Ways Clara Oswald Survives the Raven
    Ways that Clara Survives the Raven...

    Regeneration
    The Street
    “Let me be brave,” Clara whispered. She looked down the street, and saw the raven flying towards her.

    The Doctor looked on, his emotions in turmoil. How had it come to this? That Clara would be so reckless. He should have seen it coming. Should have stopped it. He should have found the Street by himself, and then called Clara and Rigsy in once he found Ashildr.

    The raven approached Clara. Then penetrated her. It started doing it's work. She cried out, in pain. Such terrible pain. Smoke came from her mouth as she did so. She then fell to the ground. She was dead.

    But after a few moments, something unexpected started to happen. “What?” the Doctor asked, hardly beleiving it.

    “What is that?” Rigsy asked.

    “Doctor!” Ashildr warned.

    “I'm not doing it!” the Doctor said.

    Golden energy had started emerging from Clara's body. She sat up. “Impossible!” she said, her voice weak.

    The Doctor smiled weakly. “The Impossible Girl!” he said, quietly.

    “Right...” Clara said. “I'm not a Time Lady!” She said as she stood up. She put her hands out. The regeneration energy continued to do it's work.

    It finished. The new Clara collapsed. She looked completely different. The Doctor glared at Ashildr. The old Clara had still ended afterall.

    “I'm sorry, Doctor,” Ashildr said. “I truly am.”

    “What she said about not taking revenge. Do you know why she said that?” the Doctor asked.

    “Wait,” Rigsy said, stepping between the two. “What just happened.”

    “A miracle. Clara just went through what should be impossible for a human. River Song was a special case. I doubt Clara was.”

    “River Who?” Risgy asked. “What haven't made sense.”

    “It's a capability of the Time Lords, my people. Clara isn't a Time Lady. She shouldn't have been able to regenerate,” the Doctor explained. He turned back to Ashildr, he still had a great deal of ire directed at her, afterall. “Now, do you know why she said what she said?”

    “She was saving you,” Ashildr answered.

    “I was lost a long time ago. She was saving you. I'll do my best, but I strongly advise you to keep out of my way. You'll find that it's a very strong universe when I'm angry with you!”

    Ashildr nodded.

    The Doctor turned back to Rigsy. “Take care of Clara. Take her to the TARDIS.” He was about to say more, but the transport bracelet beeped and he was teleported away...

    Rigsy looked to the new Clara, and back at Ashildr. “Take her, your memories won't be erased when you leave the street. But remember this, neither of you are welcome here!”

    “Understood,” Rigsy said.


    The TARDIS
    Once clear of the Street, Risgy had called Jen and said that he was on his way home. First he dropped Clara in the console room. Immediately, she sat up. “I've survived! I've changed! More girly. I like that!” She pulled a strand of hair in front of her eyes. “A lighter brown. I thought it would be lighter still,” she said with a disappointed tone. “Rigsy!” She ran and hugged him.

    He pushed her off him. “I have someone, remember,” he said, looking into the new Clara's bright green eyes.

    “Oh yeah. You can go.”

    Rigsy exited the TARDIS. He then saw, it start to disappear, as the new Clara attempted to make it fly....

    The TARDIS
    The Street
    The Doctor looked as Clara walked down the Street. “Let me be brave,” she said.

    'No! There has to be a way to defeat a Quantum Shade! Just because a method hasn't been found, doesn't mean that they can't be defeated,' he thought. He brought out the sonic shades and put them on. Instantly he called the TARDIS and directed her to materialise around Clara. The Shade left it's cage, and started flying towards Clara. The Doctor smirked as the TARDIS materialised.

    “What are you doing, Doctor?” Ashildr asked.

    “What I do best! Improvising!” he said, as the TARDIS landed around Clara. He transmitted more instructions to the TARDIS, to stay ahead of the Quantum Shade in the Time Vortex.

    The TARDIS then dematerialised, taking Clara with it.

    “She will still die, Doctor,” Ashildr said.

    “Not before I get back,” the Doctor said, as the Raven approached the place where the TARDIS had been.

    “I'm sorry, Doctor,” Ashildr said. “I truly am.”

    “What she said about not taking revenge. Do you know why she said that?” the Doctor asked. The Raven had vanished, following the TARDIS.

    “She was saving you,” Ashildr answered.

    “I was lost a long time ago. She was saving you. I'll do my best, but I strongly advise you to keep out of my way. You'll find that it's a very strong universe when I'm angry with you!”

    Ashildr nodded and the transport bracelet beeped and he was teleported away...


    The TARDIS
    Clara tried to relax as the TARDIS took off, but she knew that the Quantum Shade was still following her. The TARDIS made some noises and a hologram of the Doctor appeared. “This is emergency program one. The TARDIS will continue to fly around the universe until I return from wherever 'Lady Me' sent me. I highly advise you to head to the Zero Room, where it would be less likely for the Quantum Shade to find you if it does penetrate the TARDIS' defenses.

    She recalled seeing the Zero Room. The Doctor had shown it to her some time after he had regenerated (but before she had met Danny). She then ran out of the console room, heading to the Zero Room.

    The TARDIS was helping her, as she found the Zero Room less than a minute after leaving the console room. She opened one of the doors and slipped through, closing it behind her. Then she tried to relax in the simplistic environment.

    The TARDIS knew when Clara entered the Zero Room. Until that point she had just been travelling forwards in the spatio-temporal presence of the Street .(It still existed centuries later.) She then raced away from Earth as she continued to charge into the future...

    Stasis Cube
    The Street
    The Doctor looked as Clara walked down the Street. “Let me be brave,” she said.

    'No! There has to be a way to defeat a Quantum Shade! Just because a method hasn't been found, doesn't mean that they can't be defeated,' he thought. He brought out the sonic shades and put them on. Instantly he called the TARDIS, and directed her to materialise in front of him.

    “What are you doing, Doctor?” Ashildr asked.

    “What I do best! Improvising!” he said, as the TARDIS landed He clicked his fingers and the doors opened. He ran inside. He quickly emerged holding a small crystal cube.

    “What's that?” Rigsy asked.

    “A stasis cube. It was used by my people to hold things in a moment of time.”

    Clara turned around. “That's your plan?” she asked.

    “Yes, but we don't have time to argue,” the Doctor said.

    “OK, Doctor,” Clara agreed.

    The Doctor put on the sonic shades, and threw the cube at Clara...

    Then instead of Clara standing in the street as the Quantum Shade approached in it's lurkworm-offered Raven appearance, there was what appeared to be a portrait of Clara. The Shade was confused.

    “Now. That will give me plenty of time to defeat you, after I return from whereever it is I'm going.”

    “I'm sorry, Doctor,” Ashildr said. “I truly am.”

    “What she said about not taking revenge. Do you know why she said that?” the Doctor asked. The Shade was flying around the portrait of Clara.

    “She was saving you,” Ashildr answered.

    “I was lost a long time ago. She was saving you. I'll do my best, but I strongly advise you to keep out of my way. You'll find that it's a very small universe when I'm angry with you!”

    Ashildr nodded and the transport bracelet beeped and he was teleported away...

    “What now?” Rigsy asked.

    “You can take the portrait into the TARDIS,” Ashildr answered. “Then you'll stay in there, while denizens of the Street carry it out. Once it's outside, you're free to go on your way. The Doctor will return, then he will be stymied by the fact that the stasis cube was only a reprieve.”

    “He will find a way,” Rigsy said as he picked up the portrait. He carried it into the TARDIS.
