Today, I was listening to war of hearts by Ruelle and my roommate came in and was like “oh, what a nice song, it seems so relaxing!” and I couldn’t help but bite back a smile because, seriously, relaxing? She noticed me and asked if she had said something funny? So I had to tell her because, she needed to know. I told her about this song that I have heard in an episode during a wedding when the groom left the bride at the altar to go and love someone else and then I showed her. I had to stop every now and then to explain the story to her, obviously, but since Magnus walked in we watched the entire wedding scene in utter silence. And when they finally kissed my roommate told me “you didnt tell me it was between two male charachters so I really couldnt understand what all the fuss was about but it’s so fucking beautiful!” and then I realized something: for me, it is quite ordinary to watch a show and really not care about anyone specific gender but to her it was still fresh and new to see a same sex couple have a storyline on its own beside the main plot story.
And it stuck with me because, guys, representation matters. And I know it’s something I hear quite often but still, just saying it’s clearly not enough.
so I've just finished watching rtd's dw for the first time ever (seriously late to the party, I know) and I don't know how to cope... I am definitely not going to watch moffat's dw, but I also feel kind of angry that he fucked it up, I've never been so emotional over a tv series before in my life, idk what to do??? what did you do when you finished the end of time pt 2??? How did you cope?? I feel like I'm gonna be a mess for weeks
