Point being, if you’re here for McCoy, skip this one. If you’re a fan of Anna’s Overanalyzing, Doctor Who, Chris Chibnall, RTD, or even The Moff, stick around, because this is the post for you. 

Below the cut, Anna discusses the merits of the Russel T. Davies era, the strengths and shortcomings of Steven Moffat’s vision of the Doctor, the many shining qualities of BBC’s Broadchurch, and her hype for Chris Chibnall as the new Doctor Who show runner.

(holy hot damn, I’ve outdone myself this time)

I am getting really fucking sick of the Doctor, guys.

(Small paragraphs at the bottom on the post)

A. Hamilton: 
-Bisexual but denies it
-Married to both Jefferson and Lafayette
-Is the “owner” of a pyramid company 
-Acts extremely tough around his business, though when it comes to family and personal matters, he tries to be sweet and loving. 
-A really good cook (He cooks Colombian dishes 25/8) 
-Don’t get him angry 
-Threatens to ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) people with his cane

Justice League - Quill’s Quickies (No Spoilers)

Oh Warner Bros. You’ve really fucked up this time, haven’t you?

I’m sure we’ve all heard about the situation at the box office by now. Apparently Justice League only made $281 million worldwide during its opening weekend, which for any other movie would be great, but not for Justice League. You see the geniuses over at Warner Bros and DC decided to spend $300 million on the movie (that’s including the extensive reshoots directed by Joss Whedon). And if that’s not bad enough, according to some sources, the film’s extensive marketing brings the overall budget to somewhere in the realms of $450 million. The film is going to need to make at least $750 million in order to make any sort of profit. That is beyond stupid and judging by current figures, it looks as though the film is set to bomb big time. Whether the film is good or not is frankly immaterial at this stage. It’s going to flop. That’s practically a guarantee thanks to WB and DC getting too big for their fucking boots and spending a moronic amount of money on a film that was never guaranteed to be a hit. You’d think they’d have learnt their lesson after Batman V Superman. The fact that movies like Deadpool, Logan and even their own Wonder Woman became gigantic hits on relatively lower budgets should have given them just a little clue that maybe pouring the equivalent of Scrooge McDuck’s money bin into Justice League wasn’t a good idea. And now it looks as though the entire DCEU is in jeopardy as a result.

Let’s face it. Even if Justice League was a good movie, it would have struggled to make a profit on such a ridiculously massive budget like that. It was always destined for the cinematic graveyard no matter what Zack Snyder or Joss Whedon did. The fact that it’s crap just means the movie can now die faster.

Oh yeah. Justice League is crap. And when I say crap, I mean crap. (And please bear in mind this is coming from someone who actually enjoyed and defended Batman V Superman). Granted it’s not the worst movie I’ve seen. It’s not even the worst DC movie I’ve seen. That honour still goes to that misogynistic, wafer thin and utterly tone deaf piece of shit known as Suicide Squad, and while Justice League does share a few of the same problems with that movie, at least I didn’t feel unclean after I watched it. So hey. At least it has that going for it, right? But to say I left the cinema feeling disappointed would be an understatement.

So some random alien called Steppenwolf shows up to take over the Earth using these Mother Boxes. Who is Steppenwolf? I don’t know. What are the Mother Boxes? I don’t know. Why does he want to take over the Earth? I don’t know. This is literally all you’re getting I’m afraid. There’s not even any philosophical discussions or symbolic meaning to it like Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman had. When I say this is literally the entire movie, I mean LITERALLY. Some random alien we’ve never heard of shows up to grab some boxes that have never been mentioned before in previous movies and tries to take over the Earth because… he’s evil I guess. It’s so uninspired and so thin on the ground, you could have told me that Zack Snyder scribbled the entire script on the inside of a chocolate wrapper whilst he was on the toilet having a shit, and I would honestly believe you.

I’m sure some of you are objecting to me blaming Zack Snyder for all this, and I’m sure Joss Whedon deserves a lot of blame too, but honestly i’m past caring at this stage. Is Joss Whedon to blame for mucking about with Snyder’s vision, or is Snyder to blame for not better co-ordinating Whedon? I don’t know and I don’t care to know. We could debate for days whether it’s the organgrinder or the monkey who’s at fault, but at the end of the day the result is the same. The movie is crap and I’d rather neither of them were let near this franchise ever again.

This movie doesn’t even have any decent characters to fall back on. I suppose Ezra Miller’s interpretation of the Flash was okay. He provided a few genuine laughs and his Speed Force sequences do look pretty cool, even though they don’t in any way cover new ground because, you know, Quicksilver exists in the X-Men movies and his running scenes looked so much more impressive than this. i also quite liked Ray Fisher’s portrayal of Cyborg, and there are some genuinely touching moments at the beginning of the movie with his character. Beyond that, there’s basically nothing. Aquaman is by far the dullest character in the movie with no personality and is basically just the spare wheel. The film never takes advantage of his unique powers or the underwater setting, and he never gets any real moments where he stands out or comes into his own. You could literally replace him with Robin or Green Lantern or the Martian Manhunter, and it wouldn’t have made the slightest bit of difference. And as for Wonder Woman… Oh how the mighty have fallen. Remember when her solo movie broke new ground, doing away with a lot of the sexist tropes we normally see in these types of movies and became something truly unique and revolutionary? Well hope you enjoyed that while it lasted because here the sexist tropes are back with a vengeance. Wonder Woman is pretty much interchangeable with Lois Lane and Martha Kent because they all play the same role. The empathetic woman who props up the male heroes. The only thing that sets Wonder Woman apart is that she can fight, but not too well because God forbid she should steal the spotlight from Batman or Superman. 

And then of course there’s other sexist elements that I’m sure you’re all aware of by now. The Flash tripping over and comedically landing on Wonder Woman’s tits (LOL, a feminist icon has been reduced to a sexist punchline! How hilarious!) and of course the fact that most of the Amazonians seem to have scrapped their practical armour in favour of leather and/or metal bikinis (and to those people defending this saying that it’s historically accurate, fuck off. Seriously, just fuck off. This is a movie that claims that Amazonian warriors, merpeople, aliens and Gods had a massive war at some point in Earth’s prehistory. I’m pretty sure that’s not historically accurate, but suddenly the studio and filmmakers care about historical accuracy when it comes to how much bare naked flesh the sexy women warriors are showing in fight scenes? Fuck off. Your argument has the same whiff of bullshit as those idiots defending Suicide Squad’s romanticising of the Joker and Harley Quinn’s relationship by saying that it’s intentional because it’s from Harley’s point of view and that, if you turn your head to the side and squint hard enough, a few seconds of one particular scene could be interpreted as abusive. Look, we all like an underdog and i’m sure it must be hard to hear people constantly criticising your favourite franchise, but can we at least have the fucking spine to admit when they screw up? You just sound pathetic!).

But the absolute worst characters are Batman and Superman. Yeah we all knew he was coming back, so it’s not really a spoiler. And do you know what? I really wish Superman stayed dead. Because not only is the way they bring him back from the dead so contrived and so stupid, it also results in Batman’s character arc being regressed in order to justify this massive leap in logic. Remember in BVS when Batman became so paranoid and so controlling that his actions nearly resulted in catastrophe? Well the exact same thing happens here. In fact there are a few moments where he’s almost indistinguishable from Lex Luthor at points with his rhetoric, but the movie just wants you to conveniently ignore that. It’s okay. He’s a good guy, so it’s alright for him to be a hypocritical arsehole. So not only has Batman become a wisecracking fascist with a massive God complex, Superman has also become an insufferable dickhead. The reason why I liked Man Of Steel so much was because it got me to appreciate the character in a way I never had before. Justice League seeks to undo all of that by reminding me of all the reasons why I hated the character in the first place before I watched Man of Steel. He’s a ridiculously overpowered Mary Sue (or is it Gary Stu?) who can do no wrong, can beat up baddies effortlessly to the point where all threat and tension is chucked out of the window, and keeps stealing all the good scenes from other characters. Is the Flash about to prove his worth as a hero by saving a family? No it’s okay. Superman can do that. Is Wonder Woman going to avenge her fellow Amazonians by defeating Steppenwolf once and for all? No it’s okay. Superman can do that. Is Cyborg going to reclaim his humanity by saving the world? No it’s okay. Step aside Cyborg. Superman’s got this. Superman can do anything because he’s powerful and special and the bestest guy eveeeer.

So to all those people who were complaining about how much you hated Man of Steel because it ‘wasn’t your Superman. Boo hoo,’ I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. Sure they may have brought the entire franchise crashing down into a pile of rubble, but at least they ‘fixed’ Superman.

You can tell this movie is trying so hard to be like the Avengers, right down to the bullshit alien invasion story, but they forget what made Avengers Assemble so good. All the characters were well developed and likeable, each of them were given their own arc and they all evolved and bonded over the course of the movie. Justice League just pales in comparison. It gives the illusion that they’ve all bonded and evolved by the end, but they haven’t really. There were never any moments where they felt like real people or where they truly interacted and grew closer to each other over time. We never learn anything significant about them and I certainly don’t feel an overwhelming desire to see them all again in future films like I did after the first Avengers. I’m not necessarily saying each member of the League needed their own movie before a crossover, but there must be a better way of doing it than this.

So there you have it. Justice League. 10 years of production and approximately $450 million spent… and this is the result. A lifeless, shallow excuse for a movie with one dimensional characters, incompetent direction, and the realisation that all this buildup meant precisely jack shit in the end. Can the DCEU continue after this? Not in its current state, no. And if I’m being honest, I’d rather it didn’t.

[Martha visits Taylor at her NY apartment a few days after the VSFS. Taylor opens the door.]


“Martha! So happy to see you! I missed you”

“Missed you too, Tay!”


[The two friends hug and head toward the living room.]


“So how’s China? C’mon tell me all about it.”

“Shanghai’s great! It was crazy out there! Crazy fun. Show was amazing!”

“Yeah, I saw some pictures. Looks like you had a great time.”

“I really wish you could have been there. The girls missed you!”

“Yeah, me too. But you know I can’t.”

“I know… She asked about you, by the way.”

“Who?”

“C’mon Tay. You know who I’m talking about.”

“I’m not interested to hear what she had to say. Do you know if Todrick’s coming?”

“He should be here any minute now.”

“So what do you want for dinner?”

“Anything, actually. You know I’ll eat anything you cook.”

“Lovely! I’ll decide then. C’mon, help me out in the kitchen.”


[Taylor and Martha are in the kitchen prepping for dinner.]


“So what did, um, this person say?”

“I thought you’re not interested.”

“Fine, then don’t tell me.”

“I was just teasing, Tay. Okay, first of all- Karlie really misses you. A lot! Like it’s not even normal. She also said she’s crazy about the album. And she hates that she can’t call you and tell you how much she loves it. She said she’s very proud of you.”

“Hmm.”

“Taylor!” [Martha sensing the sarcasm in Taylor’s response]

“What?”

“Don’t hate me for saying this but can you at least try to talk to her? Be civil with each other?”

“We’re not having this conversation again, Martha. Who’s side are you on?”

“Tay, I’m not taking any sides. You know I love you both so much. And I hate to see you guys like this.”

“You know what she did.”

“Yes, I know. There’s no excuse for what she did. But we all do stupid mistakes sometimes.”

[Taylor gives her the “this conversation is over look.”]

“Okay, okay. I’m gonna shut up now.”

“Good. Let’s not ruin the night. What time is it anyway? Where the hell is Todrick?”

“You want me to call him?”

“No, that’s fine. He’s probably stuck in traffic somewhere.”

“If he’s not yet here in 10minutes, I’ll call him.”

“Okay, sounds good.”


[Martha still not willing to give up on the Karlie conversation.]


“Seriously Tay, I think Karlie’s a mess. I think she’s acting out and I’m worried. Don’t you think she’s acting a little weird these days.”

“We don’t speak anymore, Martha. So I don’t know.”

“I know that but-“

“She can do whatever she wants. We’re not together anymore. We’re not even friends anymore.”

[Taylor bites her lower lip. It hurts her so much to say those words out loud.]


“So you don’t care about her anymore? Not even a bit?”

“No.”

“You’re such a bad liar.”

[Door bell rings.]

“Todrick, finally! I’ll get the door.”

[Martha heads for the door. Taylor smiles and in a low, barely audible voice, she says to herself…]

“She’s right. I’m such a bad liar.”

Why I hate Rose Tyler

I don’t like Rose because she’s selfish, unlikable, self-centered, entirely codependent on The Doctor, many of her actions is like that of a sociopath and she never develops as a character at all and really if there is one person in all of Doctor Who who does not have a life outside The Doctor it’s Rose. She was likable with Nine(despite that she treated Mickey like shit) but annoyingly obsessive with Ten. She may be a good companion for Nine and Ten but she treats people like playthings then tosses them away like they’re nothing to her unless it suits bringing her closer to her precious Doctor. Because of Rose leaving the fans wouldn’t give Martha(who is an awesomely underrated companion) a chance and treat her like an abomination. She pretty much turned Ten from a ancient alien who travels the universe for fun into a love sick human with emotions and the forced unbearable romance between her and Ten which then resulted in fans going “OMG Rose is the only one true love for The Doctor” I’m sick of it, I’m sick of the fans and I’m sick of Rose Tyler.

Maybe I should explain. At first I liked her in the beginning, she was a good companion to Nine in series 1 but after a while she just seems so bad as a companion. There are sometimes where I like her like from stopping The Doctor from killing the last Dalek something he might regret(well not really since The Fifth Doctor regretted not killing The Daleks when he had the chance and The Seventh Doctor manipulated Davros into blowing up Skaro and talked a Dalek into killing itself), she saved The Doctor from The Daleks, she saved Jack and that allowed him to change Torchwood in The Doctor’s name and for the better, she saved Donna in Turn Left and brought Donna back to The Doctor to warn him, she stopped “The Beast(refuse to call this Satan because there would at least be interesting dialogue between The Doctor and Satan), and she did make him better(not really since The Doctor is and has always been a mysterious mad alien anti-hero who travels the universe for fun) in a way. But let’s get to why I don’t like her. Okay at first she seems perfectly normal. She has a good job, a mother and boyfriend who loves her but one fateful day when The Autons appear she meets The Doctor. The problem? She may love The Doctor but she treats people like playthings and tosses them aside when she’s done with them. How she treats Mickey. For series 1 she has this stupid boy on her string and he is so hopeless that he doesn’t know or has any choice or say in the matter. While he was her boyfriend she ran off with a stranger she just met, left him alone without so much as a goodbye and he was to blamed for her year of absence, everyone including Jackie thought he killed her (‘cause really, it’s a bloody MIRACLE that Mickey’s still alive after that long given how Britain can be in situations like that, especially when it’s a black man accused of killing a white woman). and when she see’s him all she says is “I was gonna call you and I’m sorry” at that moment it made me impossible to like her. and she gets all whiny when he says he moved on because she expects him to wait for her like a loyal lapdog wow just wow. Jackie her mother. She leaves her without so much as a goodbye, lets her worry for a year,  she can’t trust Jackie enough to just tell her where she’s been. She doesn’t have to tell the police or whoever else, just her mum. And she doesn’t. Nor does she ever thank Mickey for keeping her secret for a whole FREAKING YEAR and ruining his life! That’s some freaking dedication. That guy needs a medal. and finally The Doctor. At times Doctor/companions romance is love/hate for me but the bad thing in Rose’s case is they shove it down our throats. 99% of the time, The Doctor or someone else had to rescue Rose, or if she did the rescuing, she screwed up things worse than before. From a psychological perspective, with The Doctor just returning from the Time War because of this dependency thing. He HAS to rescue her, without killing her. Now Nine and Rose together I liked because Nine and Rose brought out the best in each other where Ten and Rose brought out the worst in each other. But I found this on why I find Ten/ Rose unbearable “I think That Rose took the war-torn, conscienceless Ninth Doctor and helped him realize his human side. Then the human-like Tenth Doctor and Rose became arrogant and started to think of themselves as gods. That is why The Tenth Doctor is unbearable to me. You know, surprisingly enough, I was just thinking about this a while back and I realised what was bothering me about Ten and Rose’s relationship; and why the majority of us can see it was so toxic for both of them. Not only was Rose attempting to treat Ten like a human, Ten was attempting to treat Rose like a Time Lady. Think about it for a moment. Anyone who’s watched Classic Who as well as New Who will get what I mean immediately. Ten treats Rose exactly like he treated Romana. Which he should never have done. Sometimes he puts Rose in situations requiring abilities and intelligence far beyond human capabilities. And Rose tries, because, like a lot of The Doctor’s companions, she wants to impress him and make him proud. But Rose can’t do the majority of these things, and it’s not fair of The Doctor to have made her attempt them. It allowed Rose to put unrealistic expectations upon herself And over time, you see The Doctor realizes this. But he can’t bring himself to stop until it’s too late and Rose refuses to leave him for her own safety. This is the fault of Ten. He’s become too human-like and thinks Rose is now his equal, like Romana was to him previously. But The Doctor is not human and Rose is not Time Lord. They are not equals. This is even more saddening when you bring the time-locking of Gallifrey into it. The Doctor is desperate for someone to be like him, survivors guilt, he doesn’t want to be alone. Rose’s fault is she wanted The Doctor to be human. The Doctor’s fault is he wanted Rose to be a replacement for his lost people, so, with the hive mind of a Time Lord, he adapted to what Rose wanted. And Rose wanted a forever, and that could never be.”  I may ship certain Doctors with certain companions(Three x Jo, Four x Romana, Five x Nyssa, Six x Peri, Eight x Charley, Nine x Rose, Eleven x River and The Doctor x TARDIS) but I just prefer to the idea of the original director during the First Doctor’s era that The Doctor should be and should remain asexual and it just feels wrong and out of character that The Doctor falls in love with his companions, to me it should just be best friends traveling time and space in The TARDIS like Sarah Jane Smith, Ace,  and Donna Noble.


Now let’s talk about the things she does episode wise that isn’t the way she treats Mickey, Jackie and The Doctor.  Father’s Day. I hate this episode because I hate her. So Rose saves her dad, something that the Doctor told her she couldn’t ever do. And yeah, if my dad died and I had a chance to save him, I would want to as well. She isn’t evil or bad for wanting to save him, she’s just stupid for actually doing it. When the Doctor tells her he’s going to leave, she says, “You don’t scare me! You’ll come back!” like she’s so fucking entitled that he’s beholden to her. And when she finally realizes what she’s done, she gives him a half-assed apology because she knows that’s all she has to give him.

Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways. She’s not too bad in this, except for raping the TARDIS and all. She does genuinely want to help the Doctor and Jack save the people on Satellite 5 and she does listen to what the Doctor tells her to do, except for the whole stay home part. And now, I”m going to give her a little leeway right here. Because if I was in that situation, I’d try whatever I could to save the Doctor too. That makes sense. But the poor TARDIS is like “Um, sweetie, no.” and Rose doesn’t listen. And no, I’m not going to blame her for the Doctor regenerating because she wouldn’t have known that was going to happen. That isn’t her fault. She was trying to help.

But when the Doctor DOES regenerate, she refuses to accept it. And yeah, I admit that it would be weird and probably scary if you didn’t know it was coming. And not to mention confusing. But she spends the whole Christmas episode whining to her mom about how he left her. He explained this to you, he’s the same person. AND HELLO, HE DID IT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE, YOU UNGRATEFUL TWAT.

And season 2 is when she starts getting really bad. I can deal with her in season 1, but I can’t even watch season 2 because of her. In Tooth ANd Claw she makes a bet with Ten that she can make the Queen say "I am not amused” yeah this would be funny if it wasn’t for the fact that there was an assassination plot AND A FUCKING WEREWOLF THAT WAS FUCKING KILLING PEOPLE! She’s mildly annoying up until School Reunion, when we see the brilliant Sarah Jane Smith return. Rose gets stupidly defensive for no reason, like she should be the only one who’s ever traveled with the Doctor. She knows how old he is, it’s not ridiculous that he’d be friends with other people. Get over it. She treats Sarah Jane terribly because of this. To her credit, they’re friends at the end, but that doesn’t discount the way that Rose acted.

And then we have The Girl In The Fireplace. Rose gets pissy because the Doctor finds himself friends with Madame de Pompadour. Rose obviously feels threatened by her, because she treats her like crap too. And now Mickey is with the group, though Rose is basically still ignoring him. (The Doctor does feel some attraction to her, but Madame de Pompadour is freaking brilliant.) And she doesn’t treat Rose the way that Rose treats her.

And in the two Cybermen episodes, she gets clingy over her dad (who isn’t her dad) who she thinks is also beholden to her in someway. He isn’t her real dad, but she acts like he should adopt her or something. She assumes he’s going to automatically accept her, and when he doesn’t, she gets all hurt like it’s his fault. And then, she suddenly gets upset when Mickey leaves, like she actually cared whether he was there or not.

Fast forward to The Impossible Planet, where the Doctor is faced with the most horrifying thing imaginable: living a normal life. Rose automatically decides they’re going to be living together, something that The Doctor doesn’t say anything about. The idea of being forced into one place and time is something he hates, but she’s happy to back him into a corner as long as she gets her fairytale.

And oh god, Love and Monsters. Rose gets mad at Alton for upsetting her mum. UM, WHO HAS BEEN THE ONE UPSETTING HER MUM FOR THE LAST TWO SEASONS? AND TREATING HER LIKE SHIT? Oh yeah, Rose has.

And Doomsday. She was trying to help the Doctor save the world and got trapped in the parallel universe. Okay. She gets credit. Credit where credit is due. EXCEPT HOLY GOD, THE BEACH SCENE. “I can’t come to the beach and see you, if I do it will blow a hole in spacetime and both universes will collapse.”

And what’s her answer? “So?”

SO?!?!?!? FUCKING ‘SO’? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? “I don’t care about killing my family and trillions and trillions of people, destroying all the planets everywhere and taking away all the days that never came, I just want to hug you.”

REALLY? Okay, I get that you’re sad. I’d be sad too. But I wouldn’t jeopardize the future of my family and two universes for fucking sentiment. And, FYI, she’d be killing the Doctor too. He kind of lives in one of those universes.

AND REALLY Rose was prepared to leave her mother, father and Mickey in a parallel universe. She was willing to throw away her family, friends and old life just to be with her precious Doctor. Hell Rose would sacrifice everyone, anything and everything in the universe to be with her precious Doctor and you know it’s fucking true.

So, fast forward to the end of season 4. She is responsible for Donna’s death in Turn Left. She whines and complains that Martha is there with the other companions and she isn’t but that’s not what gets me about Rose in series 4.  She builds a fucking dimension cannon to do EXACTLY WHAT THE DOCTOR TOLD HER NOT TO. I am 100% convinced that if Davros & The Daleks weren’t involved with series 4, then it would be Rose’s fault that the universes are collapsing and the stars are going out because Rose couldn’t stay put, she couldn’t be content and so codependent and so sociopathic that she’d be willing to sacrifice trillions and billions of lives just so she could be with her precious Doctor. But anyway, she builds the cannon and jumps back to her original universe. She puts trillions of people in danger, AGAIN, because she can’t live without her man. And then she gets a stupidly undeserved happy ending.

People often complain that Moffat’s companions have no life outside The Doctor, but really? They do. ALL the New Who companions have lives outside The Doctor except for Rose. If there is anyone in all of New Who who does not have a life outside The Doctor, it’s Rose Tyler. That’s right the very first companion of New Who and the one that most of you love and the one I absolutely despise has no life outside The Doctor. Now why do I think this? Now before The Doctor she DID have a life outside The Doctor but her job at the shop ended when the Autons attacked. But ever since The Doctor? Nothing she has had no life outside The Doctor. Oh sure she may go visit Jackie from time to time but other than that? She has nothing. She is clingy and obsessive over The Doctor. In Doomsday she was practically insulting herself, putting down her old life and acted like she didn’t matter till she met The Doctor(and people call Moffat sexist) and she practically told Jackie that the 19 years of life she gave her didn’t matter and all she needed was The Doctor, all she needed was a man! She has no character arc, she has no development, she does not care for ANYONE except The Doctor, she treats everyone who is not The Doctor like puppets on a string as a means to an end to help her get to The Doctor and tosses people like old used toys when she’s done with them, she acts like her old life, Jackie and Mickey do not matter, and she was willing to destroy billions and trillions of lives just so she could be with The Doctor

 I’m sorry if I offended any fans of Rose but I really don’t like Rose, I liked her when she was traveling with Nine but that’s it. I liked Billie Piper as The Moment’s Conscience and the sassy personality it had(and wish Rose was more like it) I like Billie as an actress and a singer. Again I’m sorry if this offends her fans but I just don’t like Rose.

THANKS FOR READING AND ENJOY♥

“I have this idea and I need someone to tell me it’s not crazy.”

You spoke, glancing at the pictures in your iPhone. Since the trip to LA you’ve been kind of obsessed over this idea. Shay frowned, sitting in the trailer’s couch, near you.

“What idea?”

At first you were hesitant of showing her, “This.”

Spring And Summer

Summery:  Really, Hanschen thought he was going to kill someone. Ilse had woken him up at an ungodly time in the morning and proceeded to annoying in a way only Ilse could. However, he could always hide out in Ernst’s and Wendla’s cabin. Or better yet, wake Wendla up as payback for sticking him with her stupid girlfriend.

Modern AU Lafayette headcanons

The lovely @dusty-soul​ asked for more detail on modern AU Lafayette and I just so happened to have about 9 million headcanons that needed to escape my brain. Most of these will make sense on their own, but a couple will seem totally random without the context of this fic (Come Marching Home), which is in turn a follow-up of this fic (And Called It Macaroni), which is based on my modern AU John Laurens headcanons and you know what? Maybe it would just be faster to link you to the series page on Ao3.

(long, heavy sigh) here we go again

okay, champs. time for a lesson in problematic behavior. i’ve literally had to copy and paste the same lecture so many times that i feel like i should get it tattooed on my stomach/chest so next time someone needs some education i can just flash them my titties and hit them hard with knowledge because i’m so fucking sick of having to go through every single page of this blog to collect all the same information that all of y'all should know already because the shows/fandoms aren’t in any way subtle about their problematic behavior

  • hijacking posts that have nothing to do with them and adding gif after gif from their shows even after the original poster asks them to stop
  • very problematic, romanticizes mental illness, often calling themselves “sociopaths” so they can be more like Sherlock, which, to people with associative disorders/who are on the Autism Spectrum find really offensive, because they’re making mental illness look like a trendy accessory
  • also says “we belong in an insane asylum” which is also really shitty because they’re comparing themselves to sufferers of mental illness because they watched a show
  • fetishizing homosexuality: only supporting gay marriage so Destiel and Johnlock can become canon; harassing actors about gay ships; hating female characters just because they get in the way of gay ships; harassing the writers (sending death threats to Mark Gatiss for example), harsh stereotyping (thinking that Moffat can’t possibly be homophobic when he’s clearly made homophobic statements because he has one gay friend) 
  • said that their fandoms were “more important than trans rights”
  • sends death threats to individuals who don’t like the shows/don’t agree with their opinions 
  • the shows themselves are very sexist/racist/heteronormative, and then the fans try to justify it/excuse it by saying “but captain jack was GAY! so it’s a LIBERATOR for GAY (men’s) RIGHTS!”when Jack Harkness was actually bisexual (oh look, bi erasure) and his sexuality was made into a fucking punchline 
  • defends the problematic things that the actors say/do (ex: Martin Freeman making rape jokes & calling Lucy Liu an ugly dog, Benedict Cumberbatch misgendering Chelsea Manning and calling her a man (even though she’s a trans woman and goes by she/her pronouns and is THEREFORE A WOMAN) because he disagreed with her opinions about leaking government secrets, and doing something like that on purpose is disgusting and extremely disrespectful, making classist comments about the UK’s education system and saying that students protesting said oppressive education system were “bloody idiots”. Before admitting that he grew up privileged and has no idea what he’s talking about.
  • racism, racism, racism! let’s talk about the shitty representation of people of color in these shows and how the fanbases treat them! SHERLOCK: One singular PoC, Sally Donovan: hated with a passion because she turned Sherlock in for being a shit and doing her actual job as a member of law enforcement, also slut shamed—Sherlock said that her knees were bruised, so she must’ve been “scrubbing Anderson’s floor” (aka having sex with him doggy style) and everyone thought it was very sassy and clever when it was actually extremely sexist. DOCTOR WHO: Martha Jones: generally hated for “trying to be the new Rose” and for “being clingy” when she’s the only companion who loved the Doctor but didn’t rely on him for character development. In the end, she realized that it was time for her to strike out on her own and leave the toxic situation she’d found herself in and left the Doctor in order to become her own woman, and a rather good agent/scientist also. Mickey: forgotten about. Nobody cares about Mickey. And then they make jokes about the fact that they forget him by calling him “the tin dog” (based on a comment someone made ONCE in ONE episode) and ignoring his entire arc of character development (which is a nice arc tbh, rather well written) in favor of poking fun out of the fact that they’re ignoring him. Other Random Side-Characters: there’s been a couple of PoC guest characters from oneshot episodes (ie: Lizzie (from the episode about the Star Whale), Martha’s parents (characterized as assholes and backstabbers), an Egyptian Queen by the name of Nefrititi, perhaps you’ve heard of her because she’s a real historical figure who got completely whitewashed for the episode and was generally useless, the kids Clara babysits (generally useless)). Not to mention that River Song ended up being Cleopatra, as if the whitewashing in this show wasn’t gross enough already. Apparently the new companion is black,which will be nice but let’s remember that he’s only the third PoC companion ever and the show’s been around for 50 fucking years. SUPERNATURAL: Tamara and her husband: dead. Kevin Tran: dead. Raphael: dead. Uriel: dead. Kevin’s girlfriend: dead. Alpha Vampire: dead. Kevin’s mom: not a lot of screen time, and for a while they thought she was, guess what? Dead. Joshua: dead. Remember Bobby’s black Hunting Buddy?: dead. Edgar (leviathan, Latino): dead. Shojo (Japanese monster): dead. The CIA officer who arrested the boys in “Jus in Bello”: dead. Jake Talley: dead. Gordon: dead. Okami (Japanese monster): played by a white woman (oh look whitewashing again! my favorite!) and also dead. 
  • in Sherlock, he makes it clear that he’s asexual, and the fandom often ignores it just so they can write fanfiction about Watson fucking him in the ass (ace erasure)

if you “honestly can’t understand what’s wrong” with sexism, racism, ableism, and classism then you really need to sort out your priorities. 

so yeah. we’re an angry hate blog. why, you ask? because we hate problematic behavior and it makes us angry. and all y'all little nerds need a few minutes in the corner and maybe a cold bucket of water to bring you back to reality 

To all the River haters.

GUYS CALM THE FUCK DOWN. All of us watch Doctor Who, we’re all Whovians, AND WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT FUCKING OPINIONS, BUT HATING ON ONE CHARACTER WON’T MAKE THE OTHER CHARACTER ANY BETTER.

Recently I came across a LOT of River Song hate. 

Why?

I get that a lot of people are obsessed with Rose, but hating on River won’t make Rose come back. And there are others who ship Whouffle. Okay ,we get it. But, seriously, some of the reasons as to why people hate River…I rolled my eyes at their stupidity, one reason was “I hate the way she talks, and she’s obsessed with her hair.” And then that person had written “People who actually like River are idiots.
Like, dude, what the fuck?

Some people said that her story is ‘meaningless’ and 'unimportant’ and that Moffat is just rubbing her in our faces so as to try and make us forget Rose? I’M PRETTY SURE THAT THE WRITERS KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. 

“Seriously just stay at the Library”
“Her time is up, she is so annoying.”
“She doesn’t even need to be in the show, she’s just a waste of space, a clingy bitch who wants to impress the Doctor.”
“The Doctor loved Rose, River, as well as Martha, should fuck off.”

THE DOCTOR DID LOVE ROSE, HE LOVED ALL OF HIS COMPANIONS, BUT YES I KNOW, EVERYONE DOES, THAT HE HAD A SPECIAL PLACE IN HIS HEART FOR ROSE TYLER.
But the Doctor moves on. He even admitted it. AND, he does love River. HE DOES. The actors as well as writers admitted that he loved Rose? WELL GUESS WHAT THEY ADMITTED THAT HE LOVED RIVER AS WELL.

Her story is amazing, and people should use a bit common sense before saying things like “She’s a psychopath and thinks of it as a joke.” SHE WAS A PSYCHOPATH. She had been trained to kill. But people change, and so do feelings.

The Doctor loved Rose, he loved River, who’s next? We don’t know. The Doctor moves on. 

Believe me, I am not opposing any ship (lol it seems funny saying that), but I just want to stop this 'civil war’. You hate River? Go ahead and hate her, maybe you find her 'Hello sweetie’ annoying, or her 'Spoilers’ but come on, she’s not a waste. And you have to say, River’s story is pretty amazing.

Okay so, River-haters, Whouffle shippers, TenxRose shippers, whatever ship and whichever person you hate, guys please. We’re Whovians, we're family, in a way. Please let’s not fight? OKay you hate River, you hate River, you love Rose, you love Rose, but don’t hate, hating won’t do you any good. River is in the story, you can’t do anything about it, so just shut up and watch the show, but if you find her so damn annoying, you could screw off.

And to all those who think my rant consists of hating, a bit, lol, it does I suppose, but the message is clear.

STOP HATING ON CHARACTERS FOR NO REASON THANK YOU AND GOODBYE.

Why you should love ALL of the NuWho companions

Rose Tyler

A lot of the criticisms I see of Rose Tyler are her naivete, her jealousy of other women, and of her hero-worship of the Doctor.  Of course there are moments that do stand out and are problematic.  I tend to think of those as writing flaws rather than character flaws.  And yes, there is a difference. I definitely think that Rose and the Doctor made each other better people. 

The Doctor taught Rose to believe in herself and Rose taught the Doctor that people need second chances, including the Doctor himself.  The best lesson that Rose Tyler exemplified is that someone who is normal, of average intelligence, and who has that youthful ignorance that can be really insulting or even dangerous has the capacity to change both themselves and the world around them for the better as long as their heart is in the right place.

 Another criticism is the fact that Rose Tyler and the Doctor do fall in love.  There really is no denying that, even if those words were not actually said.  Even a Dalek could recognize it.  But since when is it not okay for the Doctor to fall in love?  The Doctor had a wife at some time before he started travelling.  Even the first Doctor got engaged on accident in “The Aztecs.”  Love is not a bad thing.  So what if he fell in love with someone with flaws and who is so much younger?  Love isn’t exactly something that’s logical all the time.  And yes, we can still have this scientific know-it-all part of his personality alongside the part that is in love with Rose Tyler.

Jack Harkness                                                      

I actually don’t see a lot of hate on Captain Jack, but when I do, I get upset.   The main criticism is that all he thinks about is getting into people’s pants.  But look around you, tumblr.  Innuendos everywhere. And I do not recall anywhere in canon where Jack forces anyone to do anything nonconsensual, so it’s a non-issue.   And sure, Jack makes a hell of a lot of mistakes (that don’t involve sex at all) that we learn about in Torchwood, but I guess immortality and having infinite lives gives him a chance to become a better person every time.  And meeting the Doctor changed him from a con man to someone who continually saves the planet.  I’d say that’s character development, wouldn’t you?

Martha Jones

If you hate Martha Jones, you might as well unfollow me now.  No, seriously.  She is intelligent, independent, and ready to take on the world as it comes.  From the moment we meet her in “Smith and Jones”, she keeps her calm in all kinds of situations from hearing the Doctor’s second heart beating from performing CPR on an alien she just met while she herself is starved for oxygen.  She is not afraid of questioning the Doctor when he makes hasty judgments.  When faced with racism, especially in “Human Nature” and “The Family of Blood,” she manages to keep her spirit and not back down even when John Smith as well as others speak daggers at her.   Also when the Doctor lies to her, like in “Gridlock,” she doesn’t take it and deal with it.  She makes him tell the truth.  And that helps them both in the end to trust each other.

 People’s main criticism of Martha is her falling in love with the Doctor, but honestly, haven’t we ALL fallen in love with the Doctor at some point?  So what if she gets a little upset when all he thinks about is how ‘Rose would know how to get us out of this mess’?  Don’t you get upset when you’re talking to someone and all they are focused on is a person who isn’t there and is making you feel like second best?  If you said no, then you’re lying and a hypocrite.

Martha literally walked the Earth, not just for a man she loved and who did not love her back, but because she knew the fate of the universe rested in her hands.  She took up that responsibility knowing how much it would weigh on her.  And she stopped travelling with the Doctor because her family needed her and because she didn’t want to keep chasing after a romantic relationship that wouldn’t happen.  It was a very HEALTHY thing for Martha to do for herself after saving the entire universe.  But she also told the Doctor that he was not allowed to disappear forever.  And they were able to continue their friendship well after Martha had stopped travelling with the Doctor—something that rarely happens with the Doctor’s companions .

Donna Noble

A lot of the criticism I see about Donna is that she is bossy and rude.  I am telling you to reevaluate that statement.  Donna does shout a lot, but as we see in Journey’s End, there is a good explanation for that.  As someone with the same insecurities that Donna has about not ever being listened to, I can vouch for those very REAL feelings causing similar actions, though I am less inclined to raise my voice quite as high because that’s just who I am. Despite what many people see as a rough exterior, Donna has one of the kindest hearts you could imagine.  From her very first encounter with the Doctor in “The Runaway Bride,” she knows that, in her own words, that “someone needs to stop” the Doctor from losing his humanity, as she did with the Racnoss.  She knocks down the Doctor’s ego constantly, which he needs in order to look at things not from the point of view of a Time Lord, but as a regular citizen of the universe. 

Amy Pond

Amy Pond has so much hate thrown at her for no good reason at all.  There is also the complaint that she centered her life around the Doctor too much.  But honestly, meeting a man like the Doctor at the age of seven would cast a LOT of impressions on anyone.  And like any child with a particularly vivid imagination, she was essentially told she was crazy for wanting those improbable adventures with the Doctor to happen.   I think we can all identify with Amelia the child on some level because we all had certain dreams when we were younger that were constantly shot down by adults.

Another complaint is Amy’s flirting with the Doctor, especially on *gasp* the night before her wedding.  Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m so over slut-shaming.  For heaven’s sake, Rory was going to have a stripper jump out of his cake at the stag party and that is somehow perfectly acceptable.  The kiss happened, and yeah, the whole pushing the Doctor into it was not a good thing, but again, I see this as a writer’s flaw (because let’s face it, men have problems writing female characters). 

Amy chose Rory over the Doctor, and that’s a good thing.  She didn’t set herself up for heartbreak like other characters have.  She continued to have a strong friendship with the Doctor.  She was a brilliant mother (even in the case where she didn’t know she was being a mother) and raised two children with Rory.  She had doubts about herself and her marriage after losing Melody but she and Rory worked through them like people in a marriage should.

Rory Williams

I think the main reason people have problems with Rory is that he doesn’t follow the typical dominant-man role.  Come on guys, it’s the 21st century.  It’s okay for Rory to be awkward and less inclined to order women around.  He is still a badass when it comes to protecting people, even ones that he doesn’t really know.  He’s a nurse and lives up to the title.  He gives care and support to people.  Rory’s also not afraid to call the Doctor out on his behavior reminding the Doctor that ‘sometimes it’s not always about saving the universe’ but overcoming difficult things that may seem trivial in the Doctor’s eyes at the time.

River Song

River is the ultimate superhero.  Despite her very difficult childhood and ‘brainwashing’ by the Silence, she was able to break through and find love.  For a person who was engineered to kill, it is an amazing accomplishment, especially since she fell in love with the man who she was supposed to kill in the first place.  So what if she breaks rules?  The Doctor breaks rules all the time.  She should have been bitter about the Doctor…about her own existence even.  There was no way that she was going to have a normal life, and she accepts that even though it hurts.  She gives up her regenerations to save the Doctor, even though she had only just met him.  She supports the Doctor, becoming the ultimate symbol of the universe’s love for the Doctor in “The Wedding of River Song” when she tells him just how much she loves him and that the universe loves him too.  And when the Doctor lost the Ponds, she remained steady and kept looking at the weeping angel because the Doctor couldn’t.  She knew the Doctor completely and was everything he needed, except for that tragic fact of their timelines being reversed.

Honestly, I feel like the only flaws in River’s timeline I can actually admit exist are solely writing flaws, not flaws of River’s character herself.

Clara Oswald

I see so many people complaining about Clara being this ‘Impossible Girl’ and that being the only element of her character.  That’s wrong.  She started out as ordinary as anyone, just like Rose.  I know that comparison makes some of you cringe, but I can’t help drawing it.  The only reason she turned out being the ‘Impossible Girl’ is because she made the decision to do so

Clara is so much more than a plot device.  She’s also very human.  She has a normal job (first being a nanny, then being a teacher), she has a family, and she has an endless supply of curiousity.  She is like us, wanting more out of life than just the ordinary.

I’ve been thinking about how toxic fandom can be.

I could write a dissertation on the various ways fan culture breeds the worst of the worst, but this particular rant is about the race thing. Because Tumblr culture thinks it’s so progressive and above other places like Twitter and Reddit and, idk, Yahoo comment sections when it comes to race. But actually it’s not any better. It just covers the bigotry up with flowery words and feminism!!! (yeah I’m still mad at how much this site can shit on female characters while praising white peen, all the while claiming they want better for women)

This has been on my mind for awhile, even more since I’ve totally fallen in love with The Flash and watched the fallout that happened the second that Candice Patton was cast to play Iris West.

And I started to really wonder why folks went off the rails. Why people latched on to Caitlin like a life line and insisted that she should be Barry’s love interest, even before the show aired. And once it did, posts in the Iris tag ran the gauntlet of excuses of why she wasn’t a well written character to how she should either be killed off or reduced to something other than a main.

The writers of the show have pretty much made her perfect. Happy, loved, a great friend. Pretty much always has a smile on her face. College student, working part-time to cover expenses at a coffee shop. Loves her some Barry. Loves her some Joe. Even loves her some Eddie once she realizes that her whole world wasn’t just her bff, school and her dad. Even still, she starts a freaking fanblog about that super fast dude that goes around saving people because she knows Barry and wants to help him find the truth/closure about his mom’s death. She literally hasn’t done anything to anyone to be dragged across the coals the way she has been. In fact, everyone else has been doing a disservice to her by being big fat liars about things that she should really know about. Which, somehow, people turned this into being her flaw.

(If you can’t tell, I’m a stan for Iris. I will defend her to the death. Carefree blk girl that has so many people in her corner. This is SO FUCKING RARE! I have NEVER seen this before on tv)

Then that wonder turned into an ‘oh yeah, fandom is racist as hell but they don’t want to admit it.’

Because I’ve seen various versions of CW’s Iris West in other shows, with almost the same personality and charisma and having everyone be in love with her cause she’s just so awesome… and fandom tripped over themselves to stan the hell out of them.

But all those characters where white.

And this is the problem. The second a characters can no longer jokingly be called snowbunny, too much of fandom can no longer relate to them.

That’s when those tired ass tropes come out:

  • The bad actress thing
  • The no chemistry thing
  • The she’s better off without a love interest thing
  • which feeds into The Independent, don’t need a man thing
  • The she’s too aggressive thing
  • The she’s too passive thing
  • The they’re like brother and sister, so it’s incest thing
  • The she’s an action girl, therefore why are you trying to bring in a usually white male love interest to ruin it (even though that male character will have more fans than the said female character)
  • The but she’s also a damsel in distress, why can’t she just save herself and carry that load and just be a general mule that cries I Don’t Need a Hero Baby and if you help me in any way it’s just gonna invalidate my Strong Independence thing
  • The she’s too perfect thing (a.k.a the Mary Sue Syndrome)
  • The she’s not perfect enough (a.k.a. the I don’t understand that characters can be flawed and I can still love them when they identify as a woman… But hey, let me flood your dashboard with Loki and Sherlock and Bucky Barnes, and Sam and freaking Dean Winchester b/c tragic male characters are just the fucking best or something… idk, I seriously don’t care anymore)
  • The why can’t we have more strong male/female FRIENDSHIPSaremagic!!!!!11!, they don’t have to become romantic thing
  • The I just don’t like her thing, even though I can’t articulate why I actually don’t like her. And if pressed for it an explanation, I’ll just throw out the most superficial reasons why she’s just the worst thing ever to hide my internalized misogyny and racism while tagging that shit but please don’t call me out on it because then you’re just being a bully and I was only stating my opinion even though nobody fucking asked for it and gosh can’t I just live? First Amendment!!!! I’ve sent myself gotten anon death threats okay, this is why we can’t have nice things
  • The she didn’t look like that in the original source material thing. Why is everything become so PC? Those black/brown people are really getting out of hand with their want for representation. Why can’t they relate to a character if they don’t actually look like them? It shouldn’t be that hard. Who care’s if they didn’t cast Katnis or Khan or The Exodus right? They’re just characters. And their race shouldn’t play into how much you identify with them. But holly shit, Idris played a Viking god??!? Annie isn’t a pale, freckled faced red head. That’s just taking things too damn far. Let me shove the importance of European beauty standards down your throat some more, because obviously there aren’t enough of us in all your media.


Yo, this shit I just typed… this shit that I’ve seen in literally any fandom that has characters that weren’t melanin challenged… IT’S GOTTEN OLD

And the clap back that’s been happening… those people like me who are done with everyone thinking white is the status quo… it isn’t about shipping or us being sjw.

It’s about us being so fucking tired of defending characters that look like us, that speak like us, that go through the same bullshit like us, but are either ignored or vilified by fandom for reason that aren’t canon just because said fandom doesn’t want to admit it’s problematic as hell.

It’s about me being too old and too done with fandom pissing on my head and claiming it’s just rain… It’s about the fact that there is no apparent safe place for fans of color because #fandom is for white women.

This should no longer be a thing. There have been more articulate and sober folks saying this since AOL free trial disks were all the rage (trust, I was there) BUT IT’S STILL HAPPENING

This is why folks like me snark, and curse, and reply to your ‘am I the only one that doesn’t/cant’s stand [insert whatever non-white person of the week’s name here] lol?’ posts with side-eye gifs and general disdain. This is why we don’t care for your criticisms that divorce race from the narrative. This is why we have to have racebending prompts and create new tags just so that we can stan for those characters that apparently the world hates. And why we don’t give a flying fuck about your ‘can’t we all just get along? Solidarity guys. Listen to the only MLK quote I know’ posts when you aren’t trying to police the people that are causing the actual problem, but trying to guilt us into thinking you’re the victim. This is why we create our own message boards and forums and no you aren’t invited. This is why we don’t care to educate you. This is why your passive attitude towards the bs we have to go through as fans of color is worst then the actual assholes that perpetuate it.

THIS IS WHY TUMBLR AIN’T SHIT

But, despite all of this, I like it here. Sure, the staff doesn’t have their priorities straight and apparently will protect the identities of KKK members before they’ll support black history month, but it’s free and the xkit guy works miracles.  

But most importantly, I’ve met incredibly talented and smart individuals here. And I know it can be better.

So do better. That’s all I’m asking. Check yourself before you start applying higher standards to characters of color and judging them in ways you don’t to anyone else.

And FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS UNIVERSAL, LISTEN TO US WHEN WE TELL YOU YOUR LANGUAGE IS RACIST!!!!! I DON’T CARE WHAT YOUR INTENTION WAS. I DON’T CARE IF YOU AREN’T LIKE THOSE FIGURATIVE ‘OTHER PEOPLE.’ YOU FUCKED UP. PUT ON YOUR ADULT PANTS AND OWN UP TO IT. LEARN FROM IT. AND DO BETTER NEXT TIME. It’s really that easy.

*This rant has been brought to you in part by too much caps lock, the Charles Shaw Trader Joes chardonnay blend, that tequila and Waffle House I had for breakfast, and years of frustration defending characters like Iris West | Bonnie Bennett | Abby Mills | Jenny Mills | T-Dog | Mako Mori | Breaden | Guinevere | Glenn |  Olivia Pop | Joan Watson | Roxy & Fred Weasley |  Uhura | Martha Jones | Lana Lang | Michonne | Nick Fury|  Dualla ‘Dee’ | Rosita | Tyler Lockwood | Sharon/#8/Boomer | Teyla | Regina Mills | Stacker Pentecost | Lacy Porter | Tara Thorton | Shirley Donavan | Marcel Gerard | Naevia | Melinda May | Michaela Pratt | Sam Wilson | Tiana | Cassie Robinson | Tory Foster | Rhodey | Casca | Heimdall | Hogun | Aveline de Grandpre | Scott McCall | Mika | Sasha | Ororo | Literally all the non-white characters they had white folks playing them in  Game of Thrones | dot dot freaking dot I can go on forever with this list

fic: second chances, p2/2
Part One

“Oh, it’s so quiet,” Rose said sleepily, through a yawn, as she stepped into the library.

“Too quiet,” the Doctor grumbled to himself. He was fiddling with something in his lap, and Rose expected it was a TARDIS part. “Much, much too quiet.”

She frowned and ran a hand through her hair, trying to get rid of the tangles. “Where is everyone?”

“We’ve parked in London. Your time. They’re visiting their families and all that.” He looked up at her finally. “Do you want to go and see Jackie?”

“Nah,” she said, shrugging a shoulder. “I’m okay.”

He arched an eyebrow. “That’s not like you.”

“I just don’t feel like going to Mum’s today, that’s all. Can I sit down?”

“Of course,” he said, patting the seat next to him.

anonymous asked:

sherlolly prompt : Sherlock solves a crime in his mind palace with molly's help and when he solves it , she give him a kiss.

This prompt fill is also for mollyandherjumper, who expressed the need for a Sherlolly AU of this scene from The Tudors. (Yeah, I’m the weirdo who reads tags. Sue me.) This therefore means that I might have strayed from the prompt a little bit…

Despite the progress he had made in terms of love and sentiment and relationships, Sherlock would be the first to admit that he still did not quite understand them. Crimes of passion were easy to understand—hatred was far more logical than love—but crimes of genuine, heartfelt love? Those he did not understand.

Why Christians Hate "Religion" and Why We Yell Pharisee Too Quickly

 

I think most Christians today love to hate legalism, Pharisees, the word “religion,” and anything reeking of institution – not because they’re worried that these things dehumanize us or diminish us or divide us, but because it’s cool to look really relevant and revolutionary.

Yelling “Pharisee” is pretty much like yelling “Nazi” or “skinhead” or “bigot,” and it’s a buzz word that instantly conjures up the middle-aged, Bible-thumping, suit-and-tie white guy who weaponizes Scripture and prays for the demise of Hollywood and Rob Bell.

Certainly some of these kinds of people exist in the church.  Surely there are fanatical extremists who fit most of our one-dimensional caricatures.  Of course there are mean religious people who do atrocious things in the name of a loving God.

I just think it’s too easy to dismiss them to appear like we are better – and the second you compare your faith to someone else, even if it’s a Pharisee, you’ve instantly become a Pharisee.

Actually, it’s very rarely that I meet black-and-white dichotomous people who funnel their hate into a dogmatic shotgun.  Mostly I meet people who do black-and-white actions as opposed to being “those kinds of people,” and those awful church-people also usually have children, insecurities, dreams, desires, hopes, tragedies, losses, and really neat hobbies, like we all do.  They enjoy ice cream and hamburgers and even the same TV shows and movies and fandoms.  In other words, they have layers, and they’re people too.  They’re not monsters. 

But we tend to rally around a binary-battle faith because when you can demonize a certain type of person, you can mobilize a large quick movement for profit and influence and power.  It’s harder to fuel a gathering out of love.  Hate is easier.  And so when a supposedly nuanced, hip, relevant, postmodern Christian says “I’m not like those other Christians,” he’s simply fallen into the same default depravity of our reactionary nature and bought into one more dividing line of the in-house fighting.  And I’m doing the same thing with the previous sentence.

 

There are some Christians who prefer structure, authority, discipline, and hard work.  They want to schedule their Bible-reading and they need to check off a calendar and they want to attend church on a weekly planner.  They tithe to the exact dollar and they dress up every Sunday and they would never ever curse, not even after getting a papercut from their latest Oswald Chambers devotional.  And I think that’s okay.  I don’t think religion has to be such a bad word all the time.  Again, effort is not legalism, because legalism is legalism. 

I think God has room for the highly devout church guy who sits in the front row because God respects our individual dignity and personalities.  God does not mock the button-up bravado of the sincerely stiff worshiper – because this sort of Christian is still a sinner in need of grace, like you and me, and we’re not called to treat him based on any other parameter.

God has wired each of us differently.  Some Christians will drink a beer and smoke cigars and get tattoos and pray in the woods by the river with a handmade journal and Lecrae and Mumford and Sons and Nirvana in their iPod – because this is how they meet Jesus.  God has a limitless imagination to speak to each of us in a wild variety of ways.  To limit this is to limit God, and I don’t ever want to suckerpunch His sovereignty.

Jesus loved Matthew, the downright dirtiest tax collector of them all, and Jesus loved Paul, the hottest Pharisee in history.  Jesus loved Mary Magdalene, a disturbed woman with a severe demonic psychosis, and Jesus loved Martha, the proficient taskmaster A-type personality.  Jesus loves you and the other guy too. 

If you’re really down on these “Pharisees” and religious church people, maybe it’s time you get to know them.  Maybe you can quit trying to irritate them so much; maybe you can quit trying to shock them with cute rebellious uprisings to get a reaction.  Maybe we can all slow down on blogging such harsh things about the “typical church” and tradition.  You could probably learn a lot from them, because there is no them, and so we could learn from each other, and that’s how we grow to know this love that saved us.
