Class on BBC America

ok so if youre following me and haven’t watched class already, i wouldn’t blame you if you just looked away from the title lmao, i am quite forceful when it comes to this

ANYWAY, as most of you probably know already, the new series of doctor who premieres on bbc america tonight at 9/8c (if you’re in the small minority who doesn’t just download it illegally when it comes out in the uk), and that’s awesome!! but before you’re tempted to switch off your tv immediately and scream on social media - there is a new show starting straight after, and you should really watch it

class is a spin-off of doctor who set at coal hill school, with a torchwood-like premise in that there is a tear in space and time which attracts a bunch of aliens. the cast is HUGELY diverse - there’s a black girl who is super intelligent and skipped two school years, but is still vulnerable and cares deeply about her family (and calls out another character on his alien racist attitudes); a sikh boy who talks about his religion, and loses a leg in the first episode and has to get used to using a prosthetic, and a gay polish character who deals with homophobia, but that isn’t his entire character. the only two white males are in a gay relationship, and there are two interracial relationships as well.

also it’s not written by moffat if that helps - its written by YA author patrick ness who’s written stuff like a monster calls, more than this, the rest of us just live here, etc.

HOWEVER, at the moment, due to lack of advertising from the bbc, only being shown online and being given a shitty time slot when it actually was shown on bbc one, it is very low on viewing figures, and in danger of not being renewed for a second season. at the moment, the bbc haven’t made a decision, and it entirely depends on how well it does in america - so it’s crucial that you watch it!! even if you don’t want to actually watch the show, at least leave your tv on after dw, to boost the viewing figures. posting about in online, specifically twitter and instagram since those are the only ones the bbc care about, would also help a lot, and signing the petition for season two (that i can’t link right now as im on mobile)

(the characters i didn’t mention are brilliant as well - there’s a girl who seems like a typical hufflepuff at the start but then becomes probably the second most badass character in the show, gay alien prince who’s socially awkward and adorable but also super morally grey and pretty much a slave owner, and although he doesn’t think so he gets called out on it a lot, and an alien freedom-fighter physics teacher who has hilarious lines but also a really complex personality and backstory and gets a shit ton of character development. she’s my fave. i love her a lot.)

tl;dr: class is on bbc america tonight at 10/9c (after dw), its really good, watch it or it won’t get a second season and i’ll cry

The Donor Story - Part 1

Papyrus: Faris, are you available at the moment?

Faris: Uh, sure.. What is it?

Papyrus: There is someone here I’d like you to meet!

Faris: And who might that be exactly..?

Papyrus: A good friend of mine! *glances back* You can come out now~!

*After a moment or two, a short reptilian creature peeks out from behind Trisha*

???: O-Oh. I guess that’s my cue.

*she steps out, adjusting her blouse, then waddles over toward Faris and Papyrus with an awkward smile*

Papyrus: Faris, I’d like you to meet Alphys! She’s a doctor who works at a hospital back in my hometown. My brother and her used to be working partners there.

Alphys: I-I can’t believe I’m actually meeting you in person. This is.. kind of exciting *takes a step closer to Faris, eyes sparkling with interest* I-I’ve heard so much about you. You were qu-quite the troublesome one back then.. but I see that you’re starting to get along with others again *she covered her mouth and giggled. She found the flower crown on Faris’ head rather adorable*

Faris: Mm.. *his cheekbones redden slightly, and he slips the flower crown off his head. He was a little embarrassed*

Alphys: *her brows furrow* But I can’t help but wonder.. H-How is your friend doing? Papyrus told me what happened, and it left me qu-quite stunned that someone would do such a thing. Has she recovered okay?

Faris: *blinks* … *looks away* She’s fine. I healed her up… but she still doesn’t want to interact with others.

Alphys: *bobs her head* And that, I can understand. I’m t-terribly sorry that happened. You have my sympathy.

*Faris doesn’t speak up*

Alphys: *fingers fidgeting, she feels unease from the silence* S-So um… i-if it isn’t too much to ask.. mm.. m-may I take a closer look at your soul?

Faris: *glares at Alphys*

Alphys: *waves her hands anxiously* D-Don’t worry, I won’t do anything rash! I-I promise! I-I’m just curious to see how much has changed since my l-last inspection of the soul, which was.. qu-qu-quite a long time ago.

Faris: … *steps back, hand clutching his chest* I don’t know… The last time I exposed my soul, I got a needle stuck in it.

Alphys: Y-Yes, I know. Papyrus told me about it… I-In fact, he gave me that sample of the soul fragment in hopes that I might be able to recreate the body structure of your original form.

Faris: *eyes widen* What..? *glances at Papyrus*

Papyrus: *smiles warily*

Alphys: U-Unfortunately, the fragment was so small, a-and it had been outside the vessel for so long, that it couldn’t sustain itself and had… degenerated to dust before I could proceed.

Faris: *focuses back on Alphys with a jerk of his head*

Alphys: *raises her hands* I-I’m not implying that it’ll happen to the rest of your fragment! I-It’s still being maintained inside Sans, so you should be fine… I-I just want to be sure that.. that incident involving the hypodermic needle hadn’t caused any serious trauma.

Faris: … *contemplates, then sighs and places his hand over his chest. As he pulls his hand away, the soul hovers above his palm*

*Alphys readjusts her bifocals and leans in to examine the soul. Upon closer inspection, she notices a faint grey ring surrounding the darkened spot inside the soul. Alphys taps under her chin curiously*

Alphys: Hmm… your fragment still seems to be in fair condition. I-I think it might be j-just enough~

Faris: *places his soul back inside his body* Enough..? Enough for what?

Papyrus: *rests his hand on Faris’ shoulder* Remember how much you’ve been wanting to have your own body? Well… while you were away, I wanted to work on a surprise for you. I was hoping, with Alphys’ help, we could maybe recreate your body using the soul fragment we had… *slumps* but you know how that turned out.

Faris: Would it have been really possible? Making a body just by using a piece of my soul?

Alphys: I-It was only in theory. There was no telling whether it’d actually work out or not. It’s never been done before. A-Attempting it again would risk the possibility of more of your soul degenerating.

Faris: I see…

Papyrus: But! We have an alternative!

Faris: To creating a body for me?

Alphys: N-Not exactly… You see, one of my patients at the hospital had overheard of your dilemma, a-a-and he has volunteered to donate his body to you.

Faris: Really? Why..?

Alphys: U-Um… i-it’s best if you discuss the matter with him in person, but we’ll need to be quick. I don’t know h-h-how much time we have left, considering the stage he’s in at this point… L-Let’s hurry now. I’ll take you to him.

Faris: Wait… hold on… *looks behind him* .. There’s something I need to do first.

Alphys: Time is of the essence. We m-mustn’t waste more than what’s been lost already.. *frowns* I-I’m sorry, but can it wait till after the procedure? That is.. i-if you are willing to accept his offer.

Faris: I’m sorry.. but this is something I really need to do first *he gives the flower crown to Papyrus* Hold onto this for me *he then takes off before disappearing from view*

Alphys: *reaches out for Faris* W-Wait! *but is too late. Faris is already out of sight*

Have I mentioned how amazing this week’s Doctor Who sounds?

Like, not only do I utterly adore the emojibots, which are adorable and I won’t hear a word against, but apparently it’s largely a two-hander between the Doctor and Bill, focusing on her reactions to the traveling and her feelings toward the Doctor as a person. I know In the Forest of the Night isn’t the most liked episode, but I love it, and most of what I love it for is how well it develops Danny, Clara, and the Doctor. So the notion of Frank Cottrell-Boyce using his adorable little robots as a catalyst for even more focus on the characters is wonderful to me. Plus, the whole thing just visually looks amazing. Fantastic choice of location filming for the alien city, it looks gorgeous and lavish.

On the Nature of Whouffaldi

Last week, I wrote a meta about companions in Moffat vs Davies Who and how Moffat companions are defined mainly by their relationships. That meta was partly inspired by Clara: I find her a very difficult character to understand, but what I realized is that she comes into much clearer focus the more we see of her relationships with others. “The Time of the Doctor,” the first time we see her interacting with her family, is a good example of this. Her controlling tendencies and desire to maintain a certain image are instantly evident in the way she presents the Doctor as her boyfriend and obsesses over the turkey, insisting that everything be perfect.

A question that follows naturally from this realization is, of course, what is the nature of Clara’s relationship with the Doctor? Most of the other Doctor-companion relationships are clearly defined: Rose and Nine/Ten were a Romantic Couple (whether you think they were an actual item or just a bundle of sexually-charges longing), Martha had unrequited love for Ten, Donna and Ten were the Best Friends, and Eleven and the Ponds were a family. What was the Doctor’s relationship with Clara, then? Eleven and Clara seem pretty flirty, but then Twelve takes a hands-off approach. They’re friends, obviously, but it’s not the easy camaraderie of Donna and Ten; they push each at other. At times their relationship seems almost abusive, as he commands her and she goes to extreme lengths to control his actions, but they also have a lot of trust in and love for each other. What, then, are they defined by? The easy answer, of course, is that they are just the Doctor and Clara, and to attempt to define them further is to create too simplistic a model. There is a lot of truth to that in some ways, but it doesn’t satisfy me. So here’s what I came up with: the Doctor and Clara—particularly Twelve and Clara—are defined most of all by hero worship.

Reasons why I don’t like Rose Tyler

- The biggest reason is the way she treats her family and friends. When she learns her boyfriend might be dead in “Rose”, she couldn’t care less - the only thing she worries about (briefly) is that she has to tell Mickey’s parents about his death. Then she’s off, smiling and laughing with the Doctor. After that, she drags Mickey with her even though she clearly doesn’t love him. And her reaction to the fact that Mickey can finally see the stars, too, and take the amazing trip she has had, is ridiculous, childish and just horrible to watch. And when she’s still clearly Mickey’s girlfriend, she is flirting with Adam and Jack, dismissing her boyfriend completely, and also falling for the Doctor without any troubles with her conscience. She also dismissed Jackie all the time, and just pops in to space without saying goodbye. 

- The way she dismisses her whole life is unbelievable. She hates it and finds nothing good about it. “For the first nineteen years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all.” Really? So nothing your loved ones did for you meant anything to you? How dare you complain when you had so many good things in your life, things many people would kill to have (a family, a home, a boyfriend who adored you, a respectable job…)? 

- She is super needy and jealous. If the Doctor so much as talks to another person, she’s jumping up and down “Me! Me! I was here first!” Well guess what, you weren’t. You are just one in the line, and you have no right to be rude and dismissive to amazing and brave women like Martha or Sarah Jane, and she immediately dislikes other women Doctor has some kind of relationship with, too. You are not the centre of the world, Rose! The Doctor is allowed to have a life that doesn’t revolve around you 100 % of the time. 

- She is dangerous to be around with because she can’t take instructions. I mean, women don’t have to do what others tell them to do, no way, but if your actions are done out of lack of interest for anyone’s safety, then you’re just selfish. How many times did the Doctor ask her not to wander off, because he knew he had to save her and stop the catastrophe she started? 

- She cannot let go. How much time has passed in the parallel world before Doctor comes to say goodbye to her? How much time before she decides to tear the universe apart to with the Doctor? She doesn’t even want to try and move on, which annoys me for personal reasons more than I can say. 

- And the fact that she so willingly kissed Ten2 is sickening. If she was in love with Doctor like she says, she would know they are not the same. And yet she frenches Ten2 right in front of his own Doctor, and then gets upset when the Doctor leaves. Unbelievable. 

- And I know it’s not her fault, but I absolutely hate how the Doctor treats Martha because of Rose, and how he put her on a pedestal.

Could you write a McKirk “We live in adjacent apartments and one day I accidentally knocked a hole in the wall and into your living room I’m really sorry oh my god you’re naked” AU from captanjamestkirk's AU post pretty please? Bonus points if the naked person was engaged in a rather <i>personal</i> activity if you know what I mean (wink)(wink) Honestly I just want to read McKirk in a slightly awkward, cracky situation which may escalate to some hotness. Thank you and love your work!

  • Jim loves his neighbor. Handsome, grumpy doctor McCoy. Who has an adorable daughter who comes over every other weekend. Jim speaks to her more than he does to Leonard, though. Not for a lack of trying, but whenever Jim tries to start a conversation, Leonard’s usually busy. Probably real busy, not always a lame excuse to get away. They’ve had an occasional beer together, but they’re not much more than neighbors and acquaintances who tell each other hello when they see each other out on the streets or in grocery stores.
  • Jim gets really drunk with Scotty on Saturday, and he stumbles home. The game is on TV quietly, but instead of watching Jim is mostly texting Scotty and Uhura. For some stupid fucking reason, way past midnight, he decides his house is due renovation. An open kitchen, because the wall dividing the kitchen from his living room has been bothering him for some time. He bought the place a few years back, though never really did much construction on it. A few walls can really use some reconstruction. 
  • He stumbles down in the basement of his apartment, and there he finds a sledgehammer. Perfect. He can just knock out the wall, and eventually start on constructing his kitchen. Tomorrow, post hangover. First, that wall’s gotta go.  The wall in his apartment is actually weak enough that he smashes a big hole into it in just one go. And then when he leans against that broken wall, he falls straight through. 
  • Turns out, it’s not the wall to his kitchen he’s broken down, but the wall straight into the adjacent apartment. He sits up straight, a little confused and disoriented. “What. The. Fuck?!” Leonard calls out. When Jim looks up, he’s in Leonard’s bedroom. And Leonard’s not alone. “Leonard-” “JIM,” Leonard shouts at him. Jim watches in interest when Leonard’s partner - a guy - gets up and rushes to grab his clothes. He’s out in no time. “Look what you did,” Leonard says, reaching out for the covers to cover himself up. Jim scrambles to his feet. “Look, I’m sorry. I just… I wanted to break open my kitchen,” Jim says. “Well, you fucking missed!” "I’ll pay for the repair costs,“ Jim says. “You better,” Leonard replies. Jim watches with interest as the other one keeps the sheets pulled up high. “Sorry ‘bout your date.” “Wasn’t exactly a date. Now shut up, leave, and cover up that hole in the wall!“ 
  • Jim falls asleep on his couch instead of his bed. The couch faces the wall, and waking up is a bitter reminder of his own stupidity. Though, maybe it’s not all bad; he pries his eyes open just in time to watch a very nude Leonard pass by that hole in the wall. Holy shit. When the other passes by again, he’s dressed (which, real shame), and he catches his glance. “Hey,” Jim says, “I’m really sorry about last night.” “Just fix the damn hole in the wall,” Leonard says. Then, after a few seconds of silence, the doctor adds: “D'you want breakfast? I made scrambled egg.” Jim gets up immediately, and steps through that wall.
  • So rather than getting that hole fixed, Jim uses it to visit Bones all the time. Sure, he gets a construction worker to look at the costs, make it look all official, but really, he hasn’t exactly signed that contract when Leonard still invites him over for drinks, dinner, and even occasionally comes over to watch TV with Jim. “How am I ever gonna bring people home again when there’s a giant man-sized hole in my bedroom, connecting me to my stupid neighbor?” Leonard complains, openly to Jim, too, and Jim huffs. “Excuse me,” Jim says, looking insulted, “I’m a great neighbor.” “You ruined my chance to have sex,” Leonard says, and Jim chuckles. “You haven’t asked me,” he replies. Leonard hesitates, frowning at Jim like he’s trying to figure that out. “… What?” “I mean, I would sleep with you,” Jim says casually, shrugging a little. He looks at Jim, reaching out to grab the other man’s shirt; pulling him in closer. “Okay,” Leonard says. “Okay?” Jim asks. “Yeah,” Leonard says, “let’s do it.”  
  • They agree on casual, but Jim knows from the get go that this is gonna be more than casual. Just the way that Jim stays the night from day one they decide to sleep together means it’s more than just casual. Leonard makes him breakfast, too, and it’s something Jim grows so used to that even on nights when they’re not together, he just climbs through that hole in the wall and either joins Leonard in bed until the other gets up, or just walks to his kitchen to find food there.
  • Leonard is stupidly romantic, too. Jim comes home from work and throws his stuff on the couch, but he’s surprised by a pleasant scent. And when he investigates, Leonard’s reading a book on his bed, just quietly reading a book while there’s candles. On his nightstand. “What’s this?” Jim asks, raising an eyebrow. “It smells nice,” Leonard replies, “clean sheets, scented candles, you should try it sometimes.” “You’re the type who lights candles when taking a bath, too?” Jim mocks him with a grin, but Leonard just looks up with a smile. “Absolutely,” he says. Jim sits down next to him, pushing his book away and instead demanding that attention from him. “C’m here,” he says, cupping Leonard’s cheeks and pulling him in for a kiss, “you old romantic.” Leonard kisses him back, fingers tugging at his shirt eagerly. “You’re never going to fix that hole, are you?” Leonard asks, and Jim chuckles softly. “Right now, I’m gonna be focusing on a whole different ho-” Leonard interrupts him with a laugh, pulling the other in a little closer. “You’re terrible.”
Alternate characterization of Team Jacobi pt.1

Warren Kepler is legitimately nice to everyone for no alternative reasons. He admires Minkowski for all the shit she had to put up with and still made it through.

Though he doesn’t approve of Hilbert’s methods he respects the doctor’s desire to help people.

He talks to Hera like she’s a person often forgetting she is an AI. “Hera are you sleepy?” “Colonel I don’t get sleepy.”

He loves joking around with Lovelace and playing nerd poker with her (she’s like the sister he always wanted).

Also he adores Eiffel and sees him like a second son (after Jacobi).

He gives characters non-insulting pep talks, telling them they can do anything if they just believe in themselves.

Basically alternate Kepler is that dad who also coaches little league and wants to be liked by everybody.

Arty’s Definitive Guide to Her Moffat Hate

Okay, so I’m pretty sure most of you know I’ve made my opinions on Steven Moffat running Doctor Who very clear. Basically, I have a plethora of issues with it.

I’m Leo and I’m a dazzlingly good looking once-in-a-lifetime dog who somehow, through a series of highly unfortunate circumstances, ended up a starving puppy living on the streets!!!!! #tragedy

Well, you can imagine how glad I was when a nice lady stopped her warm car and took me out of the cold and to the vet doctor, where I was all fixed up and got to eat all the food I needed. #blessed

Then my savior named me “Leo” and took me to meet nice new friends at Adopt-a-Dog in Armonk, New York. Everybuddy there fell in love with me – who could resist? I was the staff favorite, sweet and adorable to every person who met me, and VERY smart! #overachiever

But somehow the days have become months and now years – for two years I’ve been waiting, longer than any other pet in this shelter. #theremustbesomemistake

I can understand some people may not think they’re worthy of me. THIS IS NOT TRUE! You are! I can see into your heart and I know it’s full of love! #knowallseeall

My shelter friends think I should be an only pet, but maybe we can discuss this. The thing is, when you’re as amazing as me, it’s hard to see why people would want another pet! Trained, healthy, loving… gosh, I wish I could adopt myself! #justtellingitlikeitis

If you already have pets or live really far from me, maybe you could reblog me? See, I spend a lot of time dreaming of my new home, and how can people know I’m looking for them if they never see my post? #inarguable

So please, call 914-273-1674 or email adoptions@adoptadog.org and tell them you want to meet Leo… and then just casually say, “What do you think of him?” if you want to know all about me! #onlygoodthings

Love forever,


anonymous asked:

Do you think Clara and Jane Austen make a good couple? It's only just struck me how suitable it is that Clara would love an author, considering her pre-occupation with stories.

(this has been sitting in my inbox for a few days now while I cover important things so sorry about that)

It’s a very interesting question (one of the best anonymous questions I’ve ever received), that’s why I didn’t want to half-ass my answer to it. 

From Clara’s perspective, as you say, she’s fascinated by stories and how they’re made. She sees the world in part through storytelling tropes. This is in part shown in her reaction to the death of Danny Pink. Her teaching of English Literature is less about kids, and more about trying to open people’s eyes to the way she sees the world. In this regard she’s an awful lot like the Doctor. Someone who constructs the ideas of how she sees the world is therefore pretty much ideal for her. 

From Jane Austen’s perspective; as an author she would be intrigued by Clara and all she’s seen. But mostly, I think she’d be fascinated by how much loss and grief she’s managed to experience in her short lifetime (her mother, Danny Pink, even the Eleventh Doctor to a certain extent) and how it informs her personality. Also, Jane would see Clara as a character as well as a person, seeing her character flaws as facets of her that are just as worthy of love as her virtues.

I honestly think the two of them would adore each other.   

If River Song was going to give Alex Kingston any sort of hair, make-up, or style advice, I think it would be ‘Do what you’re doing!’

If I see something that works with my personality, I’ll wear it. I think that sort of pretty much corresponds with how River Song approaches whatever she wears.

Cornea Love

Happy late birthday, Crissi! Sorry I got sick and couldn’t finish this last weekend. But here it is, as you requested, modern au first kiss. WITH JOKES AND A PUN TITLE. 

“Just give me a patty melt,” Bellamy said, ignoring the menu Monroe put in front of him.

“They changed the menu, doofus, they don’t even have that anymore,” Raven said before Monroe could break the news to him.

Bellamy looked up from his phone, his lips pressed together and his eyes narrowed.

“He’s such an old man,” Clarke said, shaking her head.

Bellamy didn’t have time to glare at her too because Monroe was waiting to see what he wanted. Everyone else had given their order but he’d been focused on these two idiots on Twitter debating about Common Core. He held the menu up and tried to read it but it was blurry. He looked around and was happy to see that his friends were busy talking about something else so he shifted the menu a little, holding it out a little further to the spot where the words came into focus. Right about an arm’s length away and yes, now he could see it.

“Oh my God,” Clarke exclaimed, startling him out of his menu reading. “You can’t see it.”

“What?” he asked incredulous. “No, I can see just fine.”

“I saw that, you are holding the menu out at arm’s length, you can’t fucking see it!”

11 reasons why I appreciate Clara Oswald

So after being sent angry messages last night, being unfollowed and criticized for my own opinion, I realized some people don’t like Clara Oswald, and although I do respect other peoples’ opinions, I decided to make a post clarifying the reasons why I adore this fictional character.

There will be a hug. There’d better be.

Okay, so, you know, whenever Clara leaves eventually (in whatever fashion that may be) I trust the writers to make it super awful and heartbreaking and make me cry a lot. But if I have to wish for one thing, it’s that in her goodbye scene with the Doctor, he’s the one who initiates the hug and doesn’t want to let go. Because I think that would be the most adorable and heartbreaking thing in the world.
