time-wimey

Old characters searching for true love. Hook still family to Henry. I swear, if we have to see Emma die so Henry can help his step dad move on and find love again, I will puke.

Are you really using a broad sweeping description for advertisers at May upfronts as a spoiler and then applying it to the one character it’s least likely to apply to in order to make yourself (and me) crazy?

Good grief. They’ve already said Henry is going to be the big love story. I think they are telling us that so we know that they don’t need to use any of the returning three for that purpose, especially next season.

My inbox has been full of question about Hook getting a new love interest, so I will address it ONE time.

Obviously I have no idea what they’re going to do, but let me run through the reasons it’s a dumb fucking idea.

Hook is one-half of the most popular, most epic, most central love-story on this show for the last 5 seasons. The audience would reject out of hand any attempt to give him a new love story, and why would they want to turn off the audience that way? They want viewers.

We just saw them getting married and pledge to love each other to eternity. What are you picturing that could come between that and still keep the tenants of true love alive on this show? What would that say about love and love stories on this show? What would it say about true love, the most powerful magic of all? Would it make you want to watch another love story? Would you believe that true love is still magic? Or would it destroy the foundations the show is built on?

This is all especially true if Emma is still alive which I 100% expect her to be. Killing Emma would demolish this reboot before it began. It’s depressing and devoid of hope and a terrible legacy to give the protagonist and the show as a whole.

This show was renewed because of syndication and streaming dollars, killing Emma kills that business. Period.

Next I have a lot of asks that go, “I can’t see them not giving Hook a new love interest, because I can’t see them not using Colin for a romantic/sexual angle…”

Let me get this straight, to you Colin is only good for how he relates sexually to a woman? He has no worth as an actor, and Hook has no worth as a character, outside of a romantic storyline? Wow. Fuck off. No seriously think about what you’re saying. It’s gross.

Think about how sick you feel at the thought of Hook with another woman, and then tell me again how valuable it would be to give Colin a romantic story to play just cause he’s hot? His value on this show as a leading man is with Emma. Period. They never even let us see him kiss Milah or flirt with a bar wench because of how fucking unpalatable that would have been to the audience. You think they’re gonna think the audience is more ready to see or now? After the wedding and 5 years of epic romance? Just stop.

I am not discussing this all summer. Because while I think killing Emma or destroying CS or giving Hook a new love interest would be shooting themselves in the foot, if they do it, it won’t matter to me because I won’t be watching.

If they kill Emma? Deal breaker

If they break Emma and Hook up? Deal Breaker

If they make me feel bad about Emma and Hook’s future? (not counting your garden variety villains and curses they need to deal with) Dealbreaker

If they give Colin a new love interest? (Even if it doesn’t mess with CS because it’s a prequel or fairy tale times-wimey hijinx) Dealbreaker

If they even have Hook look the wrong way at another woman? Deal breaker.

I’m going to have zero fucking tolerance for any of it, just as I have zero fucking tolerance for endless asks on the topic. If it happens, it won’t matter because I won’t be watching and you don’t have to watch either.

Claire the Time Lord

I know I already used the Tenth Doctor regeneration scene in another parallel, but his regeneration happens slower than Nine and Eleven’s. Plus, he looks more like Claire when her body destabilises and she gets all glowy. 

Are you ready to see a somewhat-happy alternative ending to Lost Future and a Doctor Who crossover? Okay, here we go. (Under the cut because this might get long.)

So in The Angels Take Manhattan, River says it would be impossible to land a Tardis in New York during the 1930s. “This city’s full of time distortions. It’d be impossible to land the Tardis here. Like trying to land a plane in a blizzard. Even I couldn’t do it.” Then, later, after the Ponds create a paradox that destroys (most of) the Weeping Angels, the Doctor says, “I can’t ever take the Tardis back there. The timelines are too scrambled.”

I mean, yes, there’s legitimate criticism of this on strictly logical grounds. Why don’t they just take a bus to New Jersey? But, you know, timey wimey. The time distortions are entangled with the Ponds’ timelines. Their biodata can’t be extricated from it. You can always gobbledegook your way out of time travel stories. The point is emotional: it’s a callback to Amy’s Choice, and Amy made her choice once and for all.

In The Return of Doctor Mysterio, River has just gone to meet her destiny in the Library. The Doctor, lost and grieving after living with her for 24 Earth years, does what we should have expected him to do: he scours the universe for a magic wishing stone that, when mounted in whatever jury-rigged timey-wimey monstrosity he’s cobbled together, will hopefully undo the time distortions created in The Angels Take Manhattan.

“It’s a time distortion equalizer thingy. There’s been a lot of disruption in New York—my fault actually—hopefully this will make it all calm down.”

The Doctor was trying to get the Ponds back.

Powers of Max linked to the tornado

I’ve heard this question a few times from multiple people that, “Game starts with a tornado vision, Max uses her powers for the first time in the bathroom, so if she didn’t use her powers before that how did they cause the tornado?”

The answer is simple, “Retrocausality”.

In this what happens is, the effect (tornado) takes places before the cause (Max using her powers) for the reason that the cause will happen in the future.

As the 10th doctor said, “People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”

So the effect can take place before the cause, specially when time travel is involved.

You're aware Jaune is dating Oscar of all people, right?

That would be a different incarnation of Jaune. Apparently there’s some wibbly wobbly time-wimey universe stuff going on this site. It was explained to me but I was lost at the third use of the word ‘Quantum’.

Regardless, @jaunearc-isms and @ask-oscar-and-femoz have my full support. Love is love, and too precious to be ignored or lost. We all wish for happiness, and I wish them all that I can.

Explanations welcome; I’m trying to schedule job interviews across state lines and AAAAGHHH I’m getting very, very conflicting information about how to make that work.

Note for non-US people: PDT and MST should be two hours apart.

Summary:

Shortly after leaving San Francisco, the TARDIS brought the Doctor to London in April, 2005 to take care of a temporal anomaly. When he finally succeeds, he’s surprised to find a glimpse of his own future in Rose Tyler’s past.

For the Eight x Rose August prompt: Rose meets Eight first. Also for Kelsey’s prompts of going out for a drink (okay so it’s tea), and “welcome home.”

—————–

Some of you know I’d planned to write a third chapter of this story, where Nine and Rose go back and actually take care of the Autons and Nestene Consciousness. I’ve struggled with it, because it means skipping over five years of their growing relationship and trying to guess where they’d be. And guess at the things they’ve done when I haven’t figured that out yet. 

Today, I decided these first two chapters stand alone just fine. I’m still planning to build a series around this concept, of Rose travelling with Eight first and staying with him when he regenerates into Nine. I’ll just be telling it in a more linear fashion than planned–even if time is not a line.

Let’s talk Broadchurch timeline inconsistencies (not complaining just rambling)

One should NOT tempt me to talk about time-wimey stuff in Broadchurch - my feeble brain can’t resist to spill out all its crazy thoughts. @penfairy’s recent post and also @jalola298 post have prompted me to go down the rabbit hole… I apologize for a rambly and lengthy post.

Okay let’s talk Broadchurch timeline inconsistencies… First of all I wanna say that this is one of my pet peeves about the show and I have brooded for hours and hours over these inconsistencies while writing fic… and yes, I am insane and totally pedantic about it so bear with me… this contains spoilers…

1. Pippa’s and Daisy’s age

  • Pippa was murdered in the night from April 14th to 15th 2012 (that’s the date of the wedding the Gillespie’s went to); she is 12 years old at that time (so her year of birth is either early 2000 or late 1999). In May of 2014  - the time of the restaurant scene with Ricky - Pippa might have been 14.
  • Daisy’s age is stated as 15 years twice in the series – during dinner at the Miller’s and during the restaurant scene when Ricky shows up
  • The dinner happens much EARLIER in the series than most people think (including myself until I figured it out) – the Miller dinner is happening on the evening on Wed 7/24/13 – the reason why we know this is when Jocelyn interrogates Susan Wright she gives a date for the break in at the ECHO; therefore the dinner happens only 6 days into the investigations (this also matches the reconstruction happening the day after in Ep 5 “one week on Thursday”, exactly a week after Danny was murdered) (that also means that Ep 1- to beginning of Ep 5 spans only 8 days of the investigation)
  • The restaurant scene happens most likely end of May (Joe’s trial start 5/14/14).
  • Now the only way Daisy can be 15 years old in both July 2013 and May 2014 is if her birthday is in June. She would have just turned 15 in June 2013 and about to turn 16 in June 2014. That puts her birthdate sometime in June 1998. She would have been 13 in April of 2012.
  • So that makes the girls at best 1 year if not almost 2 years apart.
  • That doesn’t match Hardy’s statement they were the same age unless we are lenient and say that 12 and 13 are sort of close enough in age to say it’s the same.
  • If we didn’t have Daisy’s age as 15 in July 2013 things could work out better, but they are close enough in age I guess to justify Hardy’s statement of “same age”.

2. Beth’s Pregnancy

  • If Beth knew in mid-end July 2012 that she is pregnant, the earliest she could have conceived is mid-end June; more likely she conceived mid-end May, but let’s say it was mid-June 2012.
  • That puts her due date mid-end MARCH 2014. She gives birth in mid-end May.
  • CHIBNALL!!!!!!! What were you thinking?

4. Tom’s and Danny’s age

  • Danny is born in May 2002; that means Beth was pregnant in the later part of 2001
  • In the stand Ellie states that Tom is thirteen years old; that would put his birth year either early 2001 or possibly late 2000
  • A few moments later in the same scene, Ellie says her and Beth were in the same NCT group (that’s a birthing class for those who don’t know); if Tom is born early 2001 (anytime before May) Beth and Ellie could not have been feasibly pregnant at the same time
  • Again – CHIBNALL!!!!!! (he clearly needs some education about lengths of pregnancies)

3. Other inconsistencies

  • Claire states on the day of the plea statement that she has been in Broadchurch for 7 months; counting from July 2012 seven months down brings us to January, at best February of 2014.
  • There is NO way the plea hearing is happening in January or February – it’s a beautiful late spring, early summer day; also Beth is preparing for the birth of the baby which she probably wouldn’t much earlier than maybe 2-4 weeks prior to due date. So, that then takes us maybe to mid-end April.

4. General timeline considerations for each series and the overall story (and this is where it gets rambly under the cut)
