“There are Laws of Time. Once upon a time there were people in charge of those laws, but they died. They all died. Do you know who that leaves? Me! It’s taken me all these years to realise the Laws of Time are mine, and they will obey me!”

Doctor Who Fest Day 6: favorite accessory of the Doctor - Ten’s new floral-themed ties after he lost Rose in Doomsday
Ten’s post-Doomsday switch from geometric neckties to predominantly floral neckties gifset+commentfic (6/?)
His fashion sense was impeccable in this new new body. As brilliant as him, in fact, and he made sure everything was a perfect fit before he’d wear it out—a slim suit for his foxy new build, and the ties—oh the ties! The pattern was sometimes a starburst to match his hair, or blue boxes to match the TARDIS. There was a spiraling whirlwind of possibilities in the patterns that would carry him and Rose running hand in hand anywhere… and everywhere.After that horrible day he lost her, there wasn’t a whirlwind inside him so much as a void. She was all he could think about, and she was gone… and so when he went to his wardrobe, there was only one pattern that caught his eye. And, well, it was still a perfect fit, wasn’t it? She always had been, after all.
Reblogging this because I’ve gotten a lot of questions and comments about this!! First of all, yes this is in fact true, Ten wore no floral ties throughout season 2 and then starting in Smith and Jones (s3e1) began to wear them on a regular basis (this site is an excellent resource)! Secondly, yes I believe it was intentional—Billie Piper talked at length during a s2 Doctor Who Confidential about the fact that the costuming department deliberately chose costumes to compliment character arcs—and we all know how much s3’s arc focused on Ten’s mourning the loss of Rose.
