don't do that thing

Okay, I have to go on a little rant. I get so frustrated when Rose Tyler is dismissed as being, “just a teenager.” She didn’t stay a teen forever! Come on!!

She was 19 when she met the Doctor, and she traveled with him for approximately two years. (I give it 18 months-3 years, and personally lean towards the higher end.) That means she was 21-22 when she was trapped in Pete’s World.

Then she was there for about three years–just judging by how old her brother was in SE/JE. So now she’s AT LEAST 24.

Plus she saw and did a lot in traveling with the Doctor. She was an average nineteen-year-old, but by the time they were separated, she’d matured far past her 21 years. On Krop Tor, it was Rose who took charge and got the Sanctuary Base crew working together–not Zach or Jefferson. Rose probably had more experience with dangerous situations than Zach, and she had more experience getting people to see their potential than either man.

So can we stop dismissing her as just a teenager? She was an adult woman who learned a lot travelling with the Doctor.

And just to say it–her feelings for him were not a teenage crush. They might have started as infatuation (because hello, most romantic love does!), but they deepened into something real and long-lasting. It was not puppy love.

what are some of the reasons? (abt jared) (I promise I'm not trying to interrogate u I'm just genuinely interested)

why i stopped disliking him?

  • i made a terrible post about him, upset a LOT of ppl, asked myself “why i gotta do this” and realized i didn’t have a good answer
  • i was goin thru a lot of shit and hit a super low point in my life and the way i dealt with that low point was to make changes, the most notable change being that i decided to be more positive and not so salty and bitter about everything
  • i started writing the cockles anthology and realized that i have to include jared for a complete story, and once i started writing him i couldn’t hate him anymore. (this probably sounds weird since i’m treating him like a character in a work of fiction….but i promise it makes sense in my writer brain.)
  • i met a lot of cool jared fans. one of my biggest problems with jared way long ago was that i was friends with someone who adored jared and hated jensen. my hatred for jared was fueled by the fact that i knew it would piss this person off. needless to say, we’re no longer friends and now i know ppl who are really cool jared fans and i’m like “oh shit i don’t wanna hate somebody these cool kids like.”
  • life is short, the world is ending, and i don’t have energy to waste hating celebrities 

I sent an important email AND went out for coffee with a priest friend today without freaking out bc ~anxiety~ (the last time I saw him I was in a rlly bad headspace and was sullen and brutally blunt and I was p sure he hated me and thought I was a rude nutcase) and i actually had a good time out of the house for once but now I’m exhausted and rlly rlly need to sleep

I know there's so many people out there who arent pleased with how they went with the BE storyline, i know im not. Bonnie deserves someone who's going to fight for her and is willing to go through every obsticle, but last season showed Enzo isnt willing to do that. That being said, im hoping Damon gets a better ending aswell. Maybe its a bit too harsh, but i think Damon deserves better. The dissapointment will be really big if the series will end DE's wedding or something like that :/

I think you must mean Damon deserves better than a DE ending, in which case I totally agree and I don’t think that’s harsh at all. 

He deserves to know that he is capable (and worthy) of more than dysfunction, toxicity, and this eternal struggle to make “true love” work. He deserves to finally, now that the series is ending, grow as a person and realize what Bonnie has told him all along, that redemption isn’t something that’s magically granted to you when you win a girl’s approval, it’s making hard work and hard choices that are entirely his own, purposefully and consistently. 

And moreover, he deserves to finally comprehend that he’s already been on that path to redemption for far longer than he realizes, and that his obsession with Elena is a distraction from it, not a guide. All this saccharine “I met a girl and she made me good, but now she’s gone so I’m bad again” bullshit is more than annoying: it’s a tired and demonstrably false trope that needs to be subverted if Damon is ever going to be more than the guy who thinks himself incapable of being good and who utterly loathes himself so much that he thinks he “peaked” when Elena deigned to like him back.

Inspired by this great post by @oathkeeper-of-tarth and chats with @bifurcating-arborescence: what if corruption is a metaphor for mental illness? That could go really badly, for obvious reasons- but what if it doesn’t? Steven couldn’t “fix” Centipeetle. But when Centipeetle realized she was safe, that someone cared about her, and when she was able to do what she wanted to do, she was calm and happy. What if it’s like the Cluster? What if the “cure” for corruption is recognizing that it’s terrifying to be alone, but that you’re not, not really? What if the cure is people accepting you and caring about you and supporting you, the way that you are?

fun karl headcanon:

He does NOT side with Anders’ choices if he knew they were to come.

He would be horrified if he knew that his lover became an abomination, even to a spirit of Justice. 

The Anders he knew and fell in love with would be long dead by the events of Act III.

Still can’t believe that I actually did part 2 and it’s not even finished. Part 3 is still in a VERY slow process. Haha. ha.
