lizard woman from the dawn of time

Things you only hear in Doctor Who:

- Good evening, I’m a lizard woman from the dawn of time, and this is my wife.

- Jadoon platoon upon the moon

- Put Hitler in the cupboard.

- There are dinosaurs on a spaceship!

- You named your daughter… after your daughter.

- You’re Mr. Thick Thickity Thick-Face from Thicktown Thickania. And so’s your dad!

- There are soldiers in my house, and I’m in my pants.

- Beans are evil. Bad, bad beans.

- Welcome to the Church of the Papal Mainframe. Your nudity is appreciated.

- You’re not mating with me, sunshine.

- Allons-y Allonso!

- Don’t drop the banana. It’s a good source of potassium!

- Santa’s a robot!

- I’m waving at fat!

- There’s something else that doesn’t make sense. Let’s go poke it with a stick.

- I’ve got new kidneys! I don’t like the colour!

- I bring you air from my lungs!

- God bless the cactuses!

- This is my timey wimey detector. Goes ding when there’s stuff.

- Raxacoricofallapatorious.

- Don’t be lasagna.

- Oh baby I’m beating out a samba!

- I’ll just step inside this police box and arrest myself.

I am severely disappointed by the lack of multichapter fics about how Vastra and Jenny met and discovered each other’s secrets and fell in love and confessed their love and had sex on the kitchen table for the first time.

Get your shit together, fandom. 


Moffat Appreciation Day

I dedicate this post to all Moffat’s characters of his era. The Girl who waited in a garden who grew into a woman struggling to figure out who she was beyond the stories in her head that somehow became her real life, the girl raised to believe she existed only for a singular obsession to murder a man yet who ultimately learned how to balance love and a life of her own choosing, the nurse who never wanted to be extraordinary, but could always stand up for the moral decision and fight for his family, the old man in a young man’s body who just wanted to see the universe and do the right thing, but lost site of his own moral compass, the FBI agent who never let his sexuality define his life and career, but couldn’t stop others from making it define him, the queen who tried to save her people by making a choice she couldn’t live with, the woman who thought she had it all under control who could only really learn about life by losing control, the lizard woman from the dawn of time and her Victorian human wife who were the detectives that inspired Sherlock and Watson, the socially awkward soldier scarred by war who made the ultimate decision only a leader could make, the shy fangirl who was also competent and intelligent, the fallen hero who spent a lifetime at war and nearly destroyed his own people, including the innocent, to save the universe, the hero who wasn’t very good at showing affection and accepted that he would never be like the humans he worked so hard to protect yet questioned his own character, the self proclaimed queen of evil who showed no remorse for killing yet showed a misguided loyalty to a former friend, and the many others who made this era fantastic.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Could you point out INTJs that are emotional, I mean not emotionless nerds, not Asperger (no offense here), not power hungry villains, not Gandalfs, both among the good and the bad guys in fiction? Someone to break the astereotype, for people to relate a minimum. Thank you.

Stereotype INTJ characters grind my gears cause they usually aren’t even INTJ. People just go is the character a bad guy? Yes? Clearly INTJ. Such ridiculous typing…I digress.

The following I believe are the MOST stereotype breaking:

Elrond from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit

Elrond is no villain and he is clearly invested in the fate of Middle Earth, but in an INTJ fashion. If everyone around him is going to mess up, he doesn’t need to be apart of it. To the West he goes! He is emotional though,  and it is when it comes to his daughter. That is just in the film version though. But even in the books, he is honestly a good elf and a good leader.

Marcus Kane from The 100

Another good guy who gets very emotional. As systematic and emotionless his agenda of culling was in season 1, it didn’t come from a heartless place. He was uses his Te unable to simply rely on faith alone and a lack of real evidence. But when he is proven wrong he accepts it. He is self-sacrificing and overall a peaceful man. He looks into who he wants to be and what he wants to see in humanity often.

Madame Vastra from Doctor Who

She is clearly no evil power hungry villain. She is a detective, a companion, and a married lesbian lizard woman from the dawn of time on earth. She helps others, but being an INTJ does not suffer the same savior complex The Doctor so often finds himself having. Again, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t do the right thing, she just has her priorities.

Sasuke from Naruto and Naruto Shippuden

Sasuke is an emotional cannon. This comes from his Ni and Te functions trying to figure out who he is, what he should do, and what society really is around him. He has lost his family, his people, and then his brother again. He lives in a very violent and screwed up world, it is hard not to be emotional in his position. But he proves that an INTJ can fully use their functions, but be incredibly emotional.

Ragnar Lothbrok from Vikings

Ragnar is such an INTJ it is crazy. He becomes King of the Vikings and that wasn’t even his goal. He was just that smart and efficient. He is an Ni with a Te combo that has that inner spirituality commonly found in an INFJ. But he ain’t no INFJ. He is incredibly calculating and uses this to his advantage time and time again. Have you seen the latest season finale? Sheer genius. Ragnar is a very emotional being though. You don’t hurt his family, his people, or his Athelstan. He will be emotional, but he has that amazing INTJ quality: patience. He will get you back, but in the most planned out amazing way that is just so satisfying and just so Ragnar. [Also, his relationship with Athelstan is a really cool INFJ/INTJ relationship to watch.]

Matt Murdock from Marvel’s Daredevil 

A hero? A superhero? One who doesn’t want to kill with a strong religious background? He constantly questions the morality of what he does? That doesn’t seem like a slapdash stereotype of an INTJ….Oh, except he is so INTJ it is crazy INTJs have the stereotype they do. All of that questioning of what he is doing and if he should kill is such insane amount of Ni. We even see it in how he practices law. He refuses to see himself become a moral-less defense lawyer. His Te is what helps him organize who the bad guys are and how he can take care of them inside and outside the law. His INTJ personality fails him in his relationship with Foggy, however. He is so busy organizing his vigilante life in a logical and systematic way he forgot about Foggy’s feelings, those illogical factors that don’t fit in his constant Te analysis.

Raina from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Raina is a way more common villain type for the INTJ personality. She doesn’t care about having power in the sense of being a leader. She is about herself and becoming who she has always wanted to be. Her Ni is through the roof. She is on team Raina. No cares about SHIELD or Hydra or the people of Afterlife.

kurikuridoesnotknowwhattoputhere asked stfu-moffat:

One other problem I have with Madame Vastra and Jenny’s relationship is that Madame Vastra is a lizard woman from the dawn of time and literally an alien. Now, I understand that Doctor Who, as a sci-fi show, has lots of aliens and that aliens are normal. However, in our current society a lot of people are against gay couples because they see them as “unnatural” or “alien” and in some ways I feel like this makes Vastra/Jenny seem even more bizarre to anti-gay people. Am I over-interpreting?

No! You aren’t overreacting at all! That bothers me a lot too, especially the way it’s portrayed. I don’t mind that Madame Vastra is a lizard, because this is Doctor Who and that kind of thing happens, although now you point it out it is odd that the only non-human romantic relationship is the queer one. Queer people often aren’t seen as completely human so for one of the only queer people on the show to be an alien is heterosexist.

But Moffat always draws attention to Madame Vastra’s lizardness and equates it with her marriage, e.g. declaring “I’m a lizard from the dawn of time and this is my wife!” It’s equating the two, as if being a lizard from pre-humanity is less shocking than being married to a woman. That’s incredibly heterosexist, because queer women exist now and fall in love with and marry each other. It’s not strange at all. It’s completely normal and nothing like lizard humans who’ve existed since “the dawn of time”. And it’s perpetuating the idea that queer couples are different from other people.

It’s also turning their relationship into a joke to shock other people, which is heterosexist.

Final Farewell to the Eleventh Doctor’s Era: Countdown of My 25 Favorite Episodes. Number 3 - The Snowmen

This is easily my favorite Christmas special in all of the last seven series. It is romantic and magical; tragic yet optimistic. This episode tells a truly lovely story that stands on it’s own as a tale you could repeat every Christmas without really needing to know that this is the Doctor and his companion. It is the tale of a lonely man who lost everything and the woman who pulls him back into the world.

Yet it is a perfect Doctor Who Christmas special as the underlying theme of of hope that travels beneath the darkness of the Eleventh Doctor’s era is perfectly exemplified. The characters of this era are survivors against all that tragedy and time can throw at them. The governess with two lives and the Time Lord who lives on a cloud are no exception.

When the Doctor took Amy Pond in to Travel with him, he took in a girl who was confused and, like him, just wanted to run away from the future. So, together they ran not realizing they were running head first into their future as they created their own little family. The Doctor, who had lost so many before, found himself with a best friend, a wife, and in-laws holding on to a life he could pretend might last forever, but that he knew never would.

Time Lords, maybe they really do live too long because only one now remains alive of that little family. Having lost his Ponds, the Doctor hides himself away on a cloud in a depression thinking the universe doesn’t care about him anymore… if it ever did.

But he is wrong. He is loved by so many and so much and two of those who love him watch over him even as he pushes the world away because they know that deep down he is still that great man he once was. Vastra and Jenny, a lizard woman from the dawn of time and her wife, care for him unquestioning, knowing that one day he will recover and rejoin the world.

Then, Clara Oswin Oswald enters his life and with those familiar two words, it all begins again as she asks, Doctor Who?

Clara is a clever, brave, inquisitive woman who takes an interest in the man who lives alone on a cloud and together they save the day from the Great Intelligence (as was Clara’s mission when she splintered herself through time). However reluctant the Doctor was to follow Clara back into the real world, his pain begins to lessen and his personality begins to reappear as he remembers what it was like to be the Doctor, the man who puts on a bow tie and takes hold of a friend’s hand as they run into the face of danger.

Clara is everything he could ask for and so, the Doctor invites her to travel with him giving her a key to the Tardis. He takes a chance on this woman who helped him back on the path towards being the man he once was, but in a moment of tragedy taking us out of the magical story unfolding, Clara is pulled by the ice woman out of the Tardis and falls to her death. But hope remains in this Christmas tale that all is not lost. Clara Oswald, the real woman who created this echo of herself to save this man, exists somewhere in this world, alive and well.
