Remember when RTD speculated that the reason the Master had blond hair after coming back to life was because he dyed it himself in the sink of a public men’s room, where he got mistaken for a male prostitute and fucked a guy in the bathroom stall before killing and eating him?
Remember that that’s a thing that was stated by a man who ran the show?
Looks like I’ve resurrected this Tumble thing… I mean, looks like this Tumblr has regenerated.
But it’s still not ginger.
Greetings, greetings, greetings! Well I seem to be stuck in the sodding time vortex, AGAIN! So I can’t assist you.

And OMG these old dudes. Look at these old dudes being old and excellent. LOOK AT THEM. *adores* *didn’t even care too much for 6th and 7th Doctor episodes but now want to rewatch them all*
I *have* to see this thing. Hurt’s War Doctor sounds like a riot.
petition to make young adult authors stop writing about girls whose lives change when they meet a boy
This is how it goes - in your life, where you are the main character of your own story, you will meet people, and you will change. The significant people in your life…
Okay, I am resurrecting this mostly-dead Tumblr site just to react to this. What I think of this… thing (you’ll have to go to the original to read the whole thing, I’m not down with how the fancy new Tumblr works) is that I have not seen quite so spectacular a “missing the point” in a while.
See, the problem isn’t that we have stories aimed at girls showing how they “change when meeting new people”, the problem is a specific storyline where “girl meets boy, and she changes in a specific way”.
The problematic plotline is this: the girl’s life pre-meeting the Boy is insignificant, with the implication that if she hadn’t met the Boy she would never have changed or grown as a person. It’s not just the hetero-fantasy about opposite sexes Needing Each Other To Be Whole, it’s the idea that the one who has to change is the female. The male, see, is already complete, and the world changes for him.
That’s the kind of story the petition writer was talking about. NOT stories about how people meet other people and change happens. This is like that other writer (oddly enough, another white female author of YA-focused fantasy) who also missed the point and thought someone was criticizing girls who liked to “read books and drink tea” when instead they were criticizing female main characters who were the “special” intellectual ones in a sea of silly, frivolous female side characters who didn’t understand her or her Specialness. There’s a level of obtuseness here that indicates to me that what really bother these two authors that someone has challenged a beloved scenario that they themselves never bothered to examine deeply; in other words, someone is threatening to break someone’s toys. Privilege doesn’t only make you smug and complacent, it makes you infantile.
The Oncoming Storm
My take on a darker version of the Doctor, the Predator, reminiscent of the Dreamlord or the Valeyard. A man who’s been wounded one too many times, whose defenses have finally shattered under the guilt and pain and loneliness of centuries. He has finally turned his back on the universe, becoming the one thing he feared the most. The blood of entire worlds is on his hands, and there is no one left to stop him.

DON’T BE ALONE, DOCTOR!
—Edit: quotes from The Name of the Doctor: “The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day upon day. He will have other names before the end: Storm, the Beast, the Valyard.” “The Cruel Tyrant, the slaughterer of ten billion, the Vessel of the Final Darkness…”
THIS PAINTING IS NOW LEGIT, GUYS!! @___@
I prefer this storyline to “the Doctor macks with all the ladies.” If only they had the courage to actually go there.
So people are complaining about some new shit Tumblr has done
I guess this is it? I am underwhelmed, definitely.
