DT appreciation week, day 7:
One more reason why I love David Tennant
I’ve decided not to use the themes of the day, but to write some of my own ramblings. Hope it’s okay and that it can still be used in DT appreciation week :-)
Like most of the people that I socialise with in here, I find David Tennant extremely attractive, handsome and sexy. But lately I’ve been thinking a lot about David’s humbleness about the way he looks, and I feel that there might be more to it. So here are some thoughts:
Yes - David is a humble man when it comes to his own looks. He’s said several times that he doesn’t look at himself as sexy or handsome and this is because of his upbringing. I believe him when he says this.
However, I do think that he’s quite confident and happy about his looks. Just look at the way he dresses - he DOES care about how he looks. I think that it’s the very idea about someone deciding and setting the bar on what beauty is, who’s sexy and handsome - and who’s not - that he finds repulsing.
We also have to remember that David’s also a father and I think that he wants to teach his children to be confident in themselves based on their personalities and not on their looks (although, I can imagine David’s children being gorgeous!)
I’ve also read in an older interview (from 2005, I think), that he doesn’t care about how a woman look like - he gets attracted to talent and personality. On Saturday Night Takeaway last year, this was his comments on a clip with Jennifer Lawrence, who had just been voted “most beautiful woman alive”:
As you can see, David’s all: “Meh, I’d rather want the food that she ate!” Later on the show, David fanboyed over a chubby, though very beautiful singer, Joane Stewart. In my world, he’s sending a very clear message here: It doesn’t matter how you look - if you’re a nice person and does what you love to do, I’d rather hang out with you than this mainstream actress*.
So, my conclusion is that David is a very humble person, but that he also has some rather strong opinions and is critical about the mainstream tendencies of our society.
David is a truly good human and he wants all of us to feel good about
ourselves, even though we might not live up to society’s views on beauty
or sexiness or whatever.
* please note that I have nothing against Jennifer Lawrence - I just use this as an example to prove my point.
Today marks my one year anniversary of joining tumblr, and, while this account is no longer my main, it’s still important to me, as my first foray into the sims community. I have learned so much, and (I think) made some pretty good progress in the course of one year, both with my building, and my in-game photography and editing skills. In addition to all that hullabaloo, I’ve met some of the best people here and I’m so glad for that day I stumbled on a certain some-simblr (read below) who gave me the motivation to make a blog of my own. It was the best idea I think I’ve made in a long time =)
To “honor” my 1 year, I’ve made a little compilation of 12 of my favorite screenies over the past year, so I’ll be re-posting those shortly \o/
Thank you to everyone who has followed me and supported me! Quick shoutouts to @daer0n who was the first person to ever reblog my stuff and really inspired me to keep going with her beautiful CC’s. @blackmojitos who is still the reason I ever joined the community at all, because of her gorgeous builds and genuine encouragement (even if I was anonymous little blob). And @gershologram who was like, my first follower ever LOL and he is still here being the wonderful potato that he is. And ofc my wicked waifu @pixeltrashcan whom is my light and love, and gives me reason to come back every day and keep posting. Thank you :D I love you all, and…

One of my favorite things about Lana Parrilla is how she embraces her entire fan base. While the show may not have gone in a direction a certain segment of the population wanted, she recognizes that those people saw something special in her character and care deeply, and she lets them know that they matter.
We live in a world that is incredibly cruel to LGBT people. We need more people saying “you matter” or “you are being heard” and “I value you”. Lana does that, and it is so, so important.
I am super WASPy, so I can’t say I exactly know how it feels. But I see how her embracing her LGBT fandom impacts her fans, and how it makes them feel loved and heard. Why begrudge that? Her impact ship wars into something deeper.
