Pygmy of Triviality

Well, it's an idiot heart.

The Doctor and Rose just complete each other. She had a humdrum life, with horizon no further than the chip shop, and he showed her the universe. She’d been so fiercely loyal to her mum, Jackie, and her boyfriend, Mickey, that she’d rarely looked beyond the confines of her council estate. Life with the Doctor allowed her to unlock all the passion and adventures inside her, though my favourite thing about Rose is that she was never a saint. She always kept a fantastic, ruthless, selfish streak at heart, which helped her to survive and never give up.

At the same time, the Doctor was damaged and scarred after the Time War and Rose taught him compassion again. She took the Doctor from being an introverted loner, who’d run away from any contact with her family, to the man who sat down and had Christmas dinner with Jackie and Mickey. In a way, she healed him, and made the Tenth Doctor out of the Ninth, which forged and incredible bond between them.

Even shooting in October, it was going to be hot and John [Nathan-Turner] broached the subject of what [Mark] Strickson might wear. “He didn’t insist and he actually put it in a very heterosexual way - ‘Look, the girls are always showing off their legs, Jamie wore a kilt, you’ve been in a black suit all this time, come one, get your legs out.’ I used to cycle from Waterloo, miles and miles a day, and I remember coming in wearing shorts one day and Janet saying, ‘You’ve got bloody good legs, Mark.’ When John asked me to get into shorts, I remember that and I thought, ‘Why not?’ I flattered myself that I might become a gay icon and some girls might like it too!”

Oh dear goddess.
Did you try mentioning that JK started writing her series before George RR started writing his?

im such a linguistics nerd so i just started thinking of when you start talking to someone new online and you have to learn all their personal tone indicators and what :) or any other smilie actually means to them and how after a while you can tell when something is wrong just because they type something differently than normal and we all just learn and adapt to this type of communication so quickly to make these wonderful online friendships and its kind of amazing

Repeat after me, folks: romantic plotlines don’t ruin female characters.

A female character isn’t weak because she has normal human emotions. She isn’t anti-feminist because she has vulnerabilities. There’s a difference between a female character existing entirely to be in love with the male character and a female character who happens to have a romantic subplot as part of her story.

It isn’t feminist to insist that female characters have to be “badass” unfeeling robots, detached from absolutely anything considered “feminine,” including, apparently, emotions. Sure, we don’t want female characters to be damsels in distress, but swinging in the other direction, to cardboard-cutout-badass-making-quips, isn’t much better. Good female characters appear human. And sorry, romance-haters, but love is a part of that.
