What are your favourite things about Rose Tyler?

Oh dear god, where do I even start…

1. Her humanity

Rose is so….SO freaking human. Like, don’t get me wrong, all the companions are human, obviously, but Rose just personifies that. She’s not perfect, she has flaws, she makes mistakes, and every single one of her actions is so god damn human. From saving her father’s life to trying to change a Dalek’s mind. She has no A-levels and no job, but she’s got enough humanity to make her stand out and shine in a show about time-traveling aliens and fantastical futures

2. Her selflessness

NEVER tell me Rose Tyler is a “selfish bitch.” This is the girl who told the Doctor to blow up the building they were standing in to save the world (even if it meant her death), who risked her life to save the Doctor after knowing him a total of twelve hours, who held her dying father’s hand—

“Oh but she never apologized to Jackie and Mickey for disappearing for a year and ruining their lives!

Haters gonna hate (and this is one I see a lot) but I’d like to direct you to these lines:

JACKIE: One phone call. Just to know that you were alive. 
ROSE: I’m sorry. I really am.

ROSE (to Mickey): I’m sorry. 

ROSE: He’s winding you up. I am sorry. 
MICKEY: Okay. 
ROSE: I am, though. 

Three times. She apologized three times. In one episode. I’m a little confused as to how anyone uses this to call her selfish.

3. Her Compassion

Don’t even get me started on this. She tried to save Gwyneth’s life, she held Elton as he cried, she held the Doctor’s hand on the Crucible after he lost the TARDIS — hell, she helped the Doctor to realize that his life was actually worth something and he deserved to live. Like guys, he was ready to kill himself when she first met him. Remember this:

DOCTOR: So, I’m going to go up there and blow them up, and I might well die in the process, but don’t worry about me.

You can say he was just joking around if you want, but this is a Doctor who was fresh off the pain of the Time War. I don’t think he was kidding. But Rose changed that, Rose made him want to live — Rose made him enjoy living. Just being her compassionate, lovely self.

4. Her Loyalty

Basically if Rose Tyler loves you, you’re stuck with her forever. Say what you will, but Rose stands by the people she loves — hell, she got the Doctor to help her find a guy just because he upset Jackie. She helped build a dimension cannon and jumped across universes to get back to the Doctor. That’s not “clingy,” my friends, that’s loyalty. And Rose has it in spades.

***And coming in at the very, very bottom because it’s not one of the things that immediately drew me to her but it bears mentioning:

THAT FACE. Seriously. How do you not love it?

So there you have it. A comprehensive list of my favorite things about Rose Tyler. And believe it or not, I kept my fangirling under control here.

cartersreese  asked:

yeah and everything about how the doctor suddenly doesn't understand humans like ??? If this was an earlier Doctor who doesn't stick around earth that much then yeah, I could maybe accept that idea but this is the TWELFTH doctor who has had nothing but human companions for the last couple regenerations. And even with the thousand years apart from Clara or whatever, he was still WITH HUMANS. I just don't get how he's suddenly going to be oblivious to humans and how they act and all that??

Literally nothing Moffat has said about the new season makes ANY sense. He’s going to be a darker Doctor, but he should be happier because hooray, Gallifrey’s back! He’s spent years and years and years with humans, even living on Earth for chunks of time and traveling with humans, but he doesn’t understand humans.

Moffat is basically confusion wrapped in contradictions attached to a bad haircut.

anonymous asked:

Not only do I not like the whole show in general as much in the Moffat-era but I feel like we don't get to know the Doctor and his companions as much as we knew Nine or Ten (and all their companions). Any thoughts on why that is?

Well Moffat sees the Doctor as a “god” or whatever, so of course he’s going to make him all mysterious and what not. Not that I agree with it, that’s just what I assume is his reasoning.

As for why we don’t know the companions…it’s because Moffat doesn’t give us anything to know.

With Rose, we know that her father died when she was a baby, her mother raised her as a single parent, she dropped out of school to go out with Jimmy Stone (who subsequently left her debt), and she worked a dead-end job at a store, living a life that was going nowhere.

Martha — Her family is entirely dysfunctional at best, her father is dating a possible gold-digger, her mother is a bit of a snob (and that’s putting it nicely), she has two younger siblings, and everyone looks to her to be the mediator of every problem. We know that she’s brilliant (she has to be to be a doctor), and caring, and her family is important to her no matter how much they drive her insane.

Donna — She worked as a temp (which implies she probably never went to university), she still lives with her mother and grandfather, Sylvia sees her as a constant disappointment, and as a result they have an incredibly antagonistic relationship, Donna loves her grandfather dearly, and no matter how bad things get he’s a source of basically constant encouragement for her. We also know that Wilf fought in the war and never killed a single person, and I’m pretty sure her father died, but I’m a wee bit fuzzy on that one.

But look at all those details. Look at the rich lives these characters led before they met the Doctor. What exactly do we know about Moffat’s companions?

Amy — Her parents are dead, I think? She was raised by her aunt (who I’m pretty sure was never seen on screen), and she worked as a kissogram (and don’t even get me started on that one). Oh and by the way, she saw four different psychiatrists because of her obsession with her “imaginary friend” (aka the Doctor — which just goes back to my thing about women being obsessed with the Doctor since childhood).

Rory — Uh…he has a father. Does it ever talk about what happened to his mother? He’s a nurse. He loves Amy. Apparently he has enough friends to have a bachelor party but absolutely none of them are ever seen or mentioned again. Oh and he likes that car the Doctor got them at the end of The God Complex.

River — Child of Amy and Rory. Kidnapped and raised to kill the Doctor. Married the Doctor. She’s an archaeologist or something. Died to save the Doctor. Haunts the Doctor.

Clara — Her mother is dead. What about her father? How did she meet the friend whose children she was the nanny of? Does she have any aunts or uncles? When did she decide she wants to be a teacher? I know almost nothing about her.

Also Jackie, the Jones, and Sylvia and Wilf all played parts in the show during their respective daughters’/’sister’s/granddaughter’s tenure as a companion. Hell Wilf was a companion in The End of Time!

Seriously, was Amy’s aunt ever seen, or does she have Charlie Brown syndrome*? And what about the people Clara is living with? I know the kids are in a couple episodes (her first episode VERY briefly), but where the hell is their father? Isn’t he supposed to be a friend of Clara’s? And Clara where did you even meet this guy who has two kids and is clearly older than you?

((*Charlie Brown Syndrome — Charlie Brown is a cartoon/comic strip from the 60s where adults are never seen — they just stand off screen making “mwa mwa mwa” noises to imitate talking))

It all goes back to what I’m constantly saying about Moffat’s companions existing just to further serve the Doctor. They aren’t even characters — their plot devices. And it’s sad because they all had so much potential. And it was wasted.

anonymous asked:

Jotunheim is at war with Asgard and winning, after Loki and his warriors storm the palace, he finds thor and claims the golden prince as his war prize.

Asgard was unprepared. Her warriors spread across the realms defending the innocent villages it had sworn to protect. With Loki leading Jotunheim’s forces, the former prince that knew all the ins and outs of the realm, Asgard had not a prayer. Thor fought valiantly. No less than fifty frost giants were felled with Mjolnir in hand. He could not last forever though as his comrades fell around him and the thunder god was eventually overwhelmed and brought down. As the last of the battles within the golden realm were quelled, Loki’s men brought his once brother before him, bound in enchanted chains.

The golden prince of Asgard struggled against his bonds but he was weak from fighting. As he was pushed on his knees before Loki one of the soldiers asked, “What would you have done with the Aesir prince, my king?”

Loki hummed in consideration as he thought of all of the things he could finally bring to fruition with Thor at his feet. “I think I will keep him. You’ll serve as a reminder to your people the consequences of rising up to their new king. You’ll be an example. My pet, if you may.” Thor looked as enraged as his weakened body could manage. “There, there, brother. No need to look so dismayed. After all, we shall live the rest of our days out in peace together. Is that not what you wanted?”

cartersreese  asked:

Nevermind I thought of one! While dinension hopping, Rose did see some beautiful things as well as nightmarish things. She would see universes that were still intact and almost utopia-like, but in the end she would keep going cause none of them were /her/ world.

She finds one universe, and it’s almost paradise. At least for the people who live there.

For every person, there’s a partner. Everybody has somebody – a soul-mate. A person to spend the rest of their lives with.

Everyone has someone. And everyone is happy.

Except, of course, for the interloper standing off on the side in a blue leather jacket.

Rose shoves her hand into her pockets as she zeroes in on one particular couple – a blonde woman walking hand-in-hand with a wild haired man, the two of them staring at each other as if there’s no one else in the world – and for them, there isn’t. He is her world, and she is his.

The sight of it drives a knife straight through Rose’s heart though.

Still, she can’t take her eyes off them as he leans in, catching her face between his hands and kissing her, and Rose can feel tears pricking in her eyes as she thinks about all the moments that could have been, all the moments that might never be. She never had this.

And maybe she’d never be able to.

The trigger in her pocket beeps. The dimension cannon has recharged. She pulls it out, her fingers clenching it tight for a moment as she watches the couple walk away.

And in a flash of light, she’s gone. Off to find her own wild-haired man.

anonymous asked:

Is anyone ever not in the mood for wartrophy Loki?

Loki snarled as he struggled, trying to resist the soldiers hold on him as they attempted to bind his limbs. He felt some pride in the fact that it took no less then four Aesir to hold him down, but the pride was short lived as he felt metal bite into his flesh. Heavy cuffs were put around his wrists, ankles, and neck with a chain that connected them. As soon as the men relinquished their hold on him and allowed him to stand, he hurled himself forward and head butted the closest one, effectively knocking him out. He lashed out with elbows and teeth as the others rushed to immediate pin him back down. The shouts of the scuffle drawing the attention of anyone nearby.

“What’s going on here?” A sharp, commanding voice cut through the scramble.

“A mage, m'lord! And a feisty one at that,” one of the soldiers replied.

Finally the men succeeded in pinning Loki to the ground again. A length of rope was produced from somewhere and was wrapped around his midsection around the chain going from his wrists to his neck, effectively preventing him from moving his hands any further than an inch away from his waist. There was a fist in his hair roughly pulling his head back and then a click of metal as another heavy chain was linked to the collar like a leash. The fist in his hair was gone, throwing his head forward into the ground. Loki snapped his head to the side and growled at the offender.

“My, my, you are rather feisty, aren’t you?” the commanding voice sounded again, amused this time. The man had come to stand in front of Loki and he squatted down to get a better look. Loki turned his head and looked up to immediately recognize him as the Aesir prince, Thor.

“How dare you-” he started but Thor quickly grabbed the chain attached to his neck and pulled it up, harshly cutting off Loki’s words. He held the chain like that silently as he studied Loki’s face, bright blue eyes meeting green. After a minute of Loki struggling to pull in air, Thor finally said, “I’m going to keep you.” And then he flashed a wide smile that wasn’t wholly kind and said softly, “I’m going to break you.”

anonymous asked:

When was your first sexual/romantic kiss with Dean?

Not counting the sloppy, ‘oh god did I just do that’ kisses we never talked about along the way?

I was around 25. We’d started sharing a bed because after Mystery Spot I just.. Couldn’t sleep, not unless I could feel his heart beating. I didn’t want to lose him ever again, and the thought of him going to hell scared both of us even if Dean was always putting on a front.

Guess you could say what started out as wrapping around each other to keep grounded just..developed. Forehead presses became nudged noses became kisses became..more. 

We found a comfort in each other that we’d never let ourselves have before, but had been wanting for too long, and at the time we thought it was our last few months together and we weren’t going to let ‘em pass us by without showing each other in every way we knew how that nothing else in the world mattered more to us than one another. 

percjgraves  asked:

hey there. so, i ended up on your blog thanks to your (awesome) fic yet to come (BTW, is that on FFN too?). then i read the sidebar, and now i got a question - why does a part of the DW fandom dislike Moffat so much? it's a genuine question, bc i'm as removed from the dw fandom as possible & i've always wondered - this is just the first chance i get to ask

No, it’s not on FFN. I’m not quite confident enough to post them there, lol. Glad you like it though!

Now, on Moffat….The really, really short version of it all is that part of the fandom (myself included) feels that Moffat as a writer assassinates the Doctor’s character and treats all his female characters in the same way and his storylines are just ridiculous.

The long version…Buckle up folks, this is gonna be a ride.

(Note: a lot of this is my personal opinion, but I happen to know that it’s an opinion shared by quite a few people).

To start — like I said before, Moffat assassinates the Doctor’s character. What does that mean? It means that for forty-six years before Moffat became head writer, the Doctor was this slight quirky, sometimes dark alien who traveled the universe, showing humans the sights and helping them to see that they were so much more than they gave themselves credit for. Then Moffat comes along, and suddenly the Doctor becomes a self-centered (sometimes dark), hyperactive twelve year old who sees Earth and its inhabitants as a bunch of playthings to be manipulated to his liking (see — the Doctor using humans to destroy the Silence). My personal favorite example of this is River’s rule number one: The Doctor always lies.” Uh, no, actually rule number one is “Don’t wander off,” but I guess Moffat-era Doctor doesn’t care about his companions anymore unless they’re essential to the plot and his own angst.

Next — Moffat and his female characters. I’d say don’t get me started, but you already have. First off, all three of the major female characters he’s written to date (Amy Pond, Clara Oswald, River Song) have existed solely for the Doctor.

And I know, I know — “Amy had a whole life without the Doctor! Clara is independent from him! River was very successful away from the Doctor!”

Amy’s entire character was based on “the girl who waited.” And who did she wait for? The Doctor. Clara was “born to save the Doctor.” River was “born to kill the Doctor” (and then later to become his wife, which WOW, no).*** Moffat uses the Doctor to “justify” their existence, as if they somehow need the justification. The RTD-era companions (Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble) all had real lives that weren’t connected to the Doctor in any way before they met him. Clara and River basically existed from the day of their births for the Doctor in someway, and Amy was the same way from the age of twelve on. She existed to wait for the Doctor — and then later as a baby machine, which is equally problematic in its own ways.

(***My opposition to Doctor/River has nothing to do with the fact that I ship Doctor/Rose and everything to do with the fact that that she was raised to hunt and kill the Doctor and essentially became obsessed with him and then married him. And it wasn’t even a marriage of love. Just another sign that Moffat thinks all his female characters exist to belong to the Doctor in some way.)

Moffat is an incredibly sexist person, and it shows in his writing of female characters — not just the three companions, but all of them. Here’s a direct quote from him on women, if you need any more proof:

“There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands.”

Yeah that quote still ticks me off. But anyways.

And now, my favorite part: Moffat’s writing. Where do I even start with this? To begin, his storylines are an absolute mess. He just throws in as many confusing twists and turns as he possibly can without any consideration for how they all work together. He also gives no thought to plot. He spent two and a half seasons starting all these ridiculous storylines, then got to the last Christmas special and realized, “Shit, Matt’s leaving, I need to wrap up all these storylines now.” And thus we were given The Time of the Doctor. Which was just an absolute mess from beginning to end. There wasn’t even a storyline, just a bunch of random explosions, flashy effects, and some “touching” moments. Because apparently that’s what makes a good episode in Moffat’s mind.

Moffat also apparently can’t stand the thought of the Doctor being anything less than a God and *gasp* having to deal with consequences. The entire 50th anniversary special revolved entirely around both these things. He has been quoted as saying that he couldn’t imagine the Doctor ever pushing that button and destroying Gallifrey because it wasn’t in his character — no, of course not. The Doctor would never make a choice that would benefit the greater good, that’s not in his character at all! *note the sarcasm* He rewrote and essentially erased a major point in the Doctor’s life because his emotional range is so limited that he can’t comprehend the idea of having to write the Doctor with any kind of guilt on his shoulders.

Also his depiction of the Time War was awful. See what I said before about random explosions and flashy effects.

In general, Moffat’s writing has no emotional depth. Parts that are supposed to be “touching” fall flat (like Eleven’s regeneration), and parts that are supposed to be funny are based on stupid stereotypes that end up being more offensive than anything else. Basically if it’s not action-y, he can’t write it.

There are a few other things — one of my HUGE issues with Moffat is that he was once quoted as calling Rose a “clingy girlfriend” and saying how the Doctor was brilliant for ditching her an alternate universe with a clone (not sure if that was the exact quote, but it was damn close and it was horribly insulting not only to Rose as a character but to her fans and all Doctor/Rose shippers), but those are the three major points I can think of as far as why people don’t like Moffat or his writing.

anonymous asked:

Have either of you talked about Sam's 'partner death rate' and do you guys have any clue why they all die?

Uh… no. We don’t talk about that. I honestly have no idea why it happens, either. If I had to take a guess, my history with demon blood? But I don’t see how that would cause me to be… cursed, I guess. 

It hasn’t affected Gabriel, which I’m grateful for. If I’d known how to prevent their deaths, believe me, I would have. Before Gabriel, I ended up going the fail-safe route - not sleeping with anyone.

anonymous asked:

i have a quick question about amy and clara, actually. i was just wondering, why is it a bad thing that their lives circle around the doctor? they are characters on doctor who, the show about the doctor. i don't really understand why that bugs some people, and i was hoping you could help explain it?

Personally, the thing that drew me to Doctor Who wasn’t the time travel and the awesome aliens — okay, that was part of it, but the big thing that drew me in at first was that the human character was relateable. Like Rose — I could relate to Rose on a very deep level. I was raised by a single mother (basically) who had to work two jobs sometimes just to keep things going, I worked at a dead-end job that I hated for the longest time — I could go on for hours about the ways I relate to Rose, but the point is, that’s what pulled me in. And I couldn’t relate to Martha and Donna quite as much, but the fact of the matter is that they were human. Human people with human lives. I like being able to relate to characters in shows, and since I obviously can’t relate to the nine-hundred-year-old alien with a time-traveling blue box, I’m going to turn to the totally normal human character. Clara and Amy weren’t relateable for me at all in part due to the fact that they didn’t have ”normal” lives. They had lives that revolved around the Doctor.

On a completely different note, the fact that Amy’s and Clara’s lives revolve around the Doctor is just another sign of Moffat’s rampant sexism. The way he’s written them, he’s implying that without the Doctor, their lives basically have no meaning. For five seasons the Doctor took perfectly normal human beings and helped them to realize that they are, in their own ways, extraordinary. What did he do for Amy? What’s he done for Clara? They’re barely even characters, let’s be real here. They just exist to boost the Doctor and make him better.

It’s partly that their lives revolve around the Doctor, but more because Moffat doesn’t let them be characters. And it’s sad, because they could’ve been awesome.

chibicentra  asked:

Happy birthday, Sam! How're you and Gabe celebrating being 31?

I think Gabe’s got something planned for later, and I think Dean’s expecting that too, which is why he’s been insisting that I spend at least some of it with him and Cas as well as Gabe.

More than anything else, it’s just been nice to be around family for it - and to have some downtime, too, which is deserved after everything that’s happened.

There’s been lots of laughing and it’s been really relaxed so far. All in all…

Write down and send us every moment in the show that made you hate Moffat.

Oh sweetie….I don’t think anyone has time for that.

Let’s just…ya know. Narrow it down to the big ones.

1. Turning the Doctor into a cosmic twelve year old who can’t handle ANYTHING. See – “Hide your damage.” UGH.

2.. The glorification of suicide. Which he uses as an out not once, but twice. And the second time he makes it seem so romantic because “Oh but Rory and Amy are going to die  TOGETHER. It’s so sweet!” And just…no.

3. His general treatment of woman. Amy being used as a baby machine, Clara’s and River’s existences revolving around and being justified by the Doctor.

Those are my top three biggest pet peeves. Believe me when I say there are MORE.
