Matt just checking his cock’s still there…as he likes to do quite frequently!! 😂😍
“Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged?
You are iron.
And you are strong.” — n.t. (via astrasperas)
Ah, yes, because no one ever goes on and on about the sexy factor of any Classic Doctors (they do, by the way). And Classic Who was ALWAYS, ALWAYS, so deep. It was never silly, or odd, or had whole seasons that are still referred to as “panto.”
AU - The Doctor causes the collapse of the barriers between parallel worlds, causing each of his parallel human selves to meet. Set 1 (Set 2)
Do you guys ever think about how lucky we are?
We get to read novels that other people will never know existed. We get to know authors before they hit the mainstream.
We get feedback from like-minded people who are 90% of the time gushing over how much they love our work.
We get to watch ourselves grow as writers, laugh and cry with our favorite characters in ways most people will never get to experience, and discover new writers who become our friends.
Fan fiction RULES.
“I always worry about responding to it at all because I then sound desperately defensive and weird if I list all the very strong women that we’ve imported into Sherlock that weren’t even in the original or the number of times I have the Doctor saved by the women in his life. I just think I sound like a defensive idiot if I do that.
So, what can I say? I think it’s important that there is a feminist critique of television because things that go unquestioned go unchanged and what goes unchanged becomes institutionalized and what becomes institutionalized becomes your fault. So, it should be questioned.
I think some of the criticisms that are aimed at me personally are absurdly over the top and unfair, but then, who said the prosecution has to be fair? And it’s a case that needs to be prosecuted. When it’s personalized insults that my kids can see, that’s pretty bad. That’s bad form, I’d say, and it’s not the way you conduct a reasoned argument. But, as I say, who says the prosecution has to be fair?” —
There are a few things that I think are important to take away from this quote. The first: that Steven Moffat really values feminist critiques and believes that without them we end up with institutionalized sexism in the media. The second: that he doesn’t feel comfortable trying to defend himself from accusations of sexism in his work. Finally: that he doesn’t think you need to be fair to him when making these criticisms.
So if you are going to claim that he has a giant ego, that he doesn’t care about criticism: I don’t want to hear it. If you are going to say that he dismisses all criticism as “hate,” you would be wrong. He is actually more concerned with the existence of the discussion than he is with making sure he comes out ok. And that’s something that’s to be admired.

Anyone can be a fan; anyone can create fanworks. And they do!
what the hell is there to dislike about River Song
she was thrilled to regenerate into a significantly older body, she’s confident about her sexuality and looks, she’s clever as heck, she treats her prison like it’s her summer home, she respects her husband but is never afraid to tell him when he’s wrong, she studied for years despite the love of her life saying her subject was rubbish and became a doctor and then a professor and then started an entire private detective agency on her own and visits her parents obviously quite often just to talk to them and overcame years of brainwashing and trauma to turn her would-be murder victim into her lover, and she’s kind and she listens and she takes charge and looks for adventure and danger and why the hell would you dislike River Song i literally do not understand
I just think it’s really important for people who dislike Moffat’s work to understand that Moffat fans aren’t a collective hive-mind of anti-social justice bigots who mindlessly excuse Moffat for any little thing he does. From a bisexual feminist who’s pretty outspoken on the social-justice front, it hurts to have my identity, customs and actions (things that are very important to me) invalidated because of the media I love.
If you were to ask me if there were issues with Steven Moffat’s writing from a feminist perspective, I would answer yes. Because there are. Because there always is.
- if you were to ask me to name my three favourite female protagonists I would have no hesitation in jumping straight to Amy, River and Clara.
- If you were to ask me to name the female character whose journey I find most relatable, I would have no hesitation in jumping straight to Amy Pond. The woman who found bravery and compassion within her owndamage.
- If you were to ask me to name a female character whose journey I find most captivating, I would have no hesitation in jumping straight to River Song. The woman who had her agency taken away from her but stole it back anyway.
- If you were to ask me to name a female character whose journey I look up to the most, I would have no hesitation in jumping straight to Clara Oswald. The woman who became a hero of empathy in her mother’s name; not only to children of the stars, but to the children of her own planet too.
And If you were to ask me to name three female characters whose story is ALWAYS about them gaining their own agency, growing up in their own way, saying no to the path chosen for them and instead grasping hold of time and choosing their own destiny, then I would have no hesitation in pointing you straight to the inspiring, compassionate, not-always-brave but-always-strong arms of Amy Pond, River Song and Clara Oswald.
How some anti-moffaters can look at some people’s very real, very intense and very personal relationships with these characters, people who’s lives have been saved by watching these women on-screen, and then proceed to call them anti-feminist, or bigoted, or ‘misunderstood’ is frankly astonishing.
where can I uninstall my period
i think if you download pregnancy it blocks it for a few months but then you get a really annoying loud pop up that doesn’t go away for 18 years
That is what I think he whispered in her ear (or something just like it). That’s why she realised her role in his life was something much greater than to be his killer. That’s when she realised she could love him as much some day. She had already lost so much, why not give love a chance?
Moffat has more than implied he said something to the effect that he loves her.
This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.
- Moffat’s writing makes me angry sometimes
- Moffat’s writing makes me happy sometimes
- RTD’s writing makes me angry sometimes
- RTD’s writing makes me happy sometimes
- both of them suck

- writers don’t always get it right
- but only one thing is certain
- they write for doctor who :D
