i'm not sure if it's love anymore

Honey, APH Greenland does not have an official colour scheme nor additional sketches of them. That’s just my colouring of a drawing that was in Nordics button set. It’s MY colouring, not Hima’s, and until official aph Greenland someday maybe comes out, it’s just my imagination what the colouring could be like. Also, my Greenland doesn’t go by gender pronouns. 

 Why are you all so pissed about a design that’s not even officially introduced? Himaruya may surprise you! He may also withdraw from the character entirely since the controversy, or start from a scratch and create a new one. There’s many many many countries that doesn’t have a character yet.

I’m sorry your lack of presentation in media and what your culture has have to put up with in there, but this whole series is based around stereotypes. You can’t just incriminate a single, simple Japanese man for creating a comedy series. Just, leave him alone, he can’t change how the world is.

As a person of culture, what about making content yourself? A series based on native Americans and their lives. Then you can be sure it’s not racist or stupid or whatever. Start it and make it big, change the world yourself. Don’t wait others to do it for you. You have the advantage as a person who knows their stuff.

1D as Drive Thru Customers I’ve Had

Liam: The guy who brought his pups and rolled the windows down so I could pet them. He was gushing about how much he loves them and he wouldn’t stop smiling and fonding. a 10/10 great experience

Louis: A guy who kept making jokes while ordering, and when told we didn’t have a sandwich anymore he yelled, “ballsack!” Bought food for all of the people in the car, and made sure I brought them enough ketchup. A true Dad™️

Niall: The regular who orders ½ the menu and I know it’s all for him, extremely nice and always slips me a tip so I can “have lunch on him.” He always says yes to an apple pie.

Harry: The college kid who asks for a kale salad and iced coffee, even though we don’t serve either. Super friendly and interested to know how my day is going, holds extended eye contact, always in a good mood?? He’s nicknamed “smiley” by my older coworkers. 

Across the sea, in a faraway place, you are there
No matter how many times I saw you, I missed you
Now I can’t see you and I’m sad

ayO i’m back and i apologise in advance

  • The next time Eunwoo meets Bin Bin is 6 and Eunwoo is 7 and eunwoo’s bead is a deep green
    • Bin: “let’s crab-race" 
    • Eunwoo: "ok wtf is a crab race” because he’s literally never heard of that shit in his life 
    • And so when Binnie crouched down and sets down a crab smaller than his baby palm on the wooden boardwalk, Eunwoo just gapes
    • What, so he has to race this tiny crab?? 
    • Find another crab to race this one?? 
    • Bin, what??????? 
    • Until the crab decides to cheerfully ignore both Bin and Eunwoo and just runs off the side of the boardwalk to splash back in the ocean 
    • Eunwoo doesn’t stop laughing for the next five minutes at Bin pouting 
    • But Bin eventually laughs because look at this boy, with his eyes crinkled up and his laugh as bright as sunlight glinting off the waves in diamonds 
    • And when Eunwoo slots his hand into Bin’s and tugs him off for lunch, Bin lets himself get dragged along, looking at Eunwoo like he hung all the stars in Binnie’s sky
    • He may be Moon Bin, but he will always be the tides pulled back by Eunwoo, crashing back and back again on the shore
  • The next time Eunwoo meets Bin, Bin is 7 and Eunwoo is 8 and Eunwoo’s bead is a pale moonlight purple 
    • Bin’s mum pressing kisses to both their heads as she drops bowls of ramyeon onto the table 
    • Bin hungrily digging in and talking with a mouthful of noodle at Eunwoo
    • Bin’s mum asking what they did today as she chops SuA’s noodles up 
    • Bin turning to his mum and telling his mum about how they went to the CD store today through a mouthful of dumpling 
    • Eunwoo laughing and swatting Bin’s hand because don’t talk with your mouth full, silly, everything’s going to spray everywhere
    • Bin flushing and swallowing before continuing 
    • Bin’s mum proudly ruffling Eunwoo’s hair and telling him that he’d be a great dad 
    • Bin indignantly saying that he’d be a great dad too
    • SuA snorting and poking Bin and telling him that if he thinks he’d be that great a dad, raise a child with Eunwoo and see what happens 
    • Eunwoo opening his mouth to say that he doesn’t think it’s biologically possible but Bin beats him to it 
    • Bin, looking over at Eunwoo: “yeah okay sure watch us with our kid in like thirty years then" 
    • Eunwoo looking half-exasperated but mostly fondly at Bin
    • Eunwoo thinks about this sometimes and can’t control his laughter
  • The next time Eunwoo meets Bin Bin is 8 and Eunwoo is 9 and Eunwoo’s bead is a sky blue 
    • Eunwoo and Bin tossing around a soccer ball 
    • Eunwoo’s in his school soccer club and he’s convinced it’s the best sport ever invented 
    • Bin trying to learn all the rules from Eunwoo’s mile-a-minute talking 
    • Eunwoo and Bin running up and down the road outside Bin’s mum’s shop with the soccer ball, laughing and screaming 
    • Eunwoo sending a fast ball over to Bin and Bin stretching, stretching, stretching because he knows he can reach it in time, he can 
    • Bin toppling over and scraping both his knees 
    • And wow it really, really hurts 
    • Tears welling up in Bin’s eyes 
    • Eunwoo running over and crashing next to Bin and checking his knees and his fingers coming away bloody 
    • And Eunwoo looks up, prepared to comfort Bin and to wipe his tears away the same way his dad wiped his away when he fell for the first time too 
    • But he only sees tears shining in Bin’s eyes and Bin biting his lip 
    • Bin just staring at Eunwoo with an almost fierce expression because he isn’t going to cry in front of Eunwoo, he can’t, he won't 
    • Because if he cries and Eunwoo finds him too childish and whisks back off to the city and never appears again, where will he be? 
    • Where will he be without his Eunwoo? 
    • But his thoughts disappear when Eunwoo hauls Bin up and into his mum’s shop and talks him through the pain of his mum bandaging the wounds
    • And as he grips Eunwoo’s hand and grits his teeth, a few tears slip out from the pain and Bin nearly starts bawling then and there 
    • But Eunwoo’s there, hands soft and gentle and murmuring in a voice moonlight-clear 
    • And when Eunwoo bends down to press a kiss to the bandage, Bin thinks that maybe it’s alright to fall down and cry sometimes, as long as Eunwoo’s there at the end of it, holding his hand and ready to kiss him better

Erwin remembered tales fishwives had spun about riptides when he was little, but the insistent tugging, the tearing at his heavy clothing from all sides wasn’t at all what he had imagined.  He wondered if this was what had happened to the swimmer.

Hey! Do you have any tips on giving constructive criticism? I've tried to in the past and I've just ended up making people feel bad. I'm not sure if I should even bother anymore with it, because even though they say constructive criticism is appreciated, they seem to take extremely personal, when it's not meant to come off that way. I know that some anon's can be dicks and I don't want to come off that way, so is there anyway you can lend some advice? Thanks! BTW, I love your blog!!

As a writer, it’s hard not to take it personally, even when we ask for it. And it’s hard to give feedback, because every writer is different. We focus on different things, and what might really hurt one author’s feelings doesn’t hurt the next. We also all have different ideas about what constructive criticism is, and we all have different ideas about how it should be given.

Here’s my advice: If you really want to give constructive feedback, do it privately in an IM, so that the author isn’t forced to discuss it publicly if they’re embarrassed. Also, make sure to talk about why you like it, why you love their work, and be specific about the parts you thought were really good. It’s much easier to handle “You might want to consider doing this…” if we’ve got “I loved this…” in the same message.

Hope that helps! XOXO

hi! i have become a huge fan of you in the past like day or so (i'm sure your activity page at this point looks like i'm stalking you) as all of your commentary is perfectly on point - i love moffat and i think he's done so much good for this show that it just drives me insane to see baseless commentary otherwise (especially when it's clear it's coming from people who don't even watch anymore). anyway you're doing the lord's work here and i thoroughly enjoy and appreciate it :)

Hi there!

Thank you so much! For the record, your blog is incredibly amazing also; I’m sure in the not-to-distant future your activity page will look just as obsessive as mine!

I love Steven Moffat so, so much too. The hilarious thing is that this wasn’t always the case. C.2013, I was definitively part of the Moffat Hate crowd! I was the first in line to reblog every “The Day of the Doctor hates New Who canon!”, and “Clara’s life revolves around The Doctor!”, and “River Song is a terrible, regressive female character!” post I could find. (Luckily my old old blog has long since been deleted!)

I think the thing to understand about Moffat Hate, (and i use that term accordingly. Legitimate critique of Moffat’s work is something I have no problem with, and something I partake in myself), is that it’s effectively a phenomenon. And one that can only ever have occured to a show like Doctor Who:

For people like myself, who sat down with their family as an eight year old kid to watch Rose as it first aired in 2005, Moffat’s takeover of the show coincided with adolescence, and therefore with our own blossoming social awareness and critical skills. By this point, Doctor Who had well and truly carved its place as a staple of British pop culture, and therefore as a staple of childhood influence. (I mean, I don’t know about in the US, but in the UK, you’d be hard pressed to find a primary school pupil across the country who wasn’t avidly discussing the cliffhanger at the end of The Stolen Earth the Monday after the episode aired! I can’t emphasise enough how utterly huge Doctor Who was as a child. It was literally all anyone talked about!) 

The RTD era of show therefore has a real place in the hearts of many, and so, as is the way with nostalgia, we link it directly to our childhoods and romanticise it. Add to that a burgeoning social media platform built on synergetic hyperbole and herd mentality, (I mean gosh look at the “your fave is problematic” discourse, and how hard everyone here collectively turned from Superwholock Stans to agressively hating all three shows in the space of a few months), an unfortunately normal dose of self-critical cringe culture, (what we engage with and enjoy as tweens is automatically horribly uncool and terrible the older we get), and Moffat’s era never really stood a chance!

It was only upon doing a complete rewatch of the show after Matt Smith’s final episode, that I finally allowed myself to view these episodes out of personal context. With retrospect. And with Russell’s era, I discovered a goofy, passionate, indulgent melodrama that’s as clumsy and nonsensical as it is engaging and moving, while with Moffat’s era, I discovered a thematically rich, witty, macabre modern fairytale that’s as sumptuous and stylish as it is full of glorious glorious soul. They were both completely different to how I’d remembered them, both a bundle of triumphs with a few falters, and yet both standing on their own feet. It was only upon rewatch that I truly discovered, and appreciated, Moffat’s high-concept, darker, more visceral, and therefore more controversial, version of the show. It had guts! it holds a punch! Without negating the beauty of triumphant storytelling to do so! And it doesn’t half carry conceptual and thematic weight! River’s diary. Amy’s glasses. Clara’s leaf. Bill’s photos. Simple objects and items that Moffat pours entire universes into. There’s something so sweeping, so rich and so compelling about the imagery filled, picture-book way Moffat writes. He’s less a screenwriter, and more a storyteller. That’s the distinction I’d make, and the distinction that, in my mind, puts him head and shoulders above Russell T. (who is a tremendously brilliant writer himself, I might add).

This totally goes without mentioning Moffat’s ever-increasing embrace of social issues. There’s no way to view River’s story as anything other than a celebration of female freedom and female agency. There’s no way to view Clara’s story as anything other than a celebration of female defiance. And there’s no way to view Amy’s story as anything other than a celebration of female courage, of female kindness. Steven Moffat champions his characters, he champions his female characters, and there’s no getting away from that. He makes them suffer, because good drama depends on that, but they have always, always stood triumphant and proud at the end of it all. That’s a track record worth cherishing, I think.

All of this stands amongst an unbowed, unbent, unbroken, pro-female doctor agenda, and a current series which has given us shameless, open, positive, political commentary on the disgraces of historical whitewashing, on racism, on slavery, on capitalism, on colonialism, on indoctrination, on militarisation, on media bias, on fake news, on heteronormativity, on sexism and on the gender binary system. Oh, and the show’s first Black Lesbian Companion to boot. When it comes down to it, Steven Moffat really is pretty great!

Gosh, this turned into something really extensive and a little bit histrionic! But I’m so beyond passionate about this wonderful era of my favourite show, and, like you, I am so beyond frustrated by the constant mischaracterisations and misreadings, (in many instances, categorically and intentionally false ones, delivered by people who haven’t even watched the show since 2013), of the work and words of the man behind it all, that I think I deserve to be a tad extravegant! 

Thanks so much again! xx
