Because silly is cathartic, darn it!

He's always in the right/wrong place at the right/wrong time. He's exactly where he needs to be.
His general approach to life is cheerfully loony, but do not piss him off.
He has a vast array of knowledge and acquaintances.
His TimeLord name/title is The Reporter
His Tardis takes the form of a motorcycle or vespa, or in a pinch, a suitcase or briefcase.

Anything else to add to the theory?  Wink

Evidence supports suitcase TARDIS theory1.

...question for everyone: when you asked Sol Todd what happened when he looked into the Untempered Schism, what did he say?

I'm waiting eagerly for the range of answers.

Maybe, "I saw words. When I squinted, they looked like 'Answer hazy. Try again later.'" But I'm sure that was only one of the replies.

Mm. I meant "story" as in journalism. "Lead," maybe?

He also wrote to us from the future, which is impressive.

Upon seeing the Untempered Schism, he immediately wrote down what he saw but would never tell anyone the same thing twice about it. He wasn't even meant to be there that day...

His TARDIS could be his Vespa (or is it a Harley Softail - chameleon circuit!). Think about the affection he shows it.

You know the diary that some Time Lords keep?

Sol's is a newspaper. And it's always got today's date on it. Except when it has tomorrow's.

Sol with psychic paper in his notebook... oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

And because I just got done checking the forecast (for reals) for an event we're going to my brain served up this snippet-
 
"Today's weather is expected to be partly Time Lord with a 99.999% chance of slightly unbelievable yarns. However, there is a slight
chance of particularly sharp shooting in the third act. Basically, running won't help but go ahead if it makes you feel better."

The Weekly World News is printed on psychic paper.

At least one story says what you don't want to believe.

"I wanted to tell you both. I've met someone."

"Danny, that's good," his mother said, sounding strange and strained and cautious. "What's--"

"His name's Grayson. He works for the State Department."

No one knows what Sol saw, because he gives a different answer every time someone asks.

Also, Saoba, the "running won't help" bit is beautiful!

Sol as the Oncoming Storm?

Yep, that's definitely the way Reyes uses him.

Cotton Candy. He definitely insists he saw quite a lot of cotton candy. And the entry to a funhouse.
