whovians only

Stop the ‘real Whovian’ and ‘fake Whovian’ debates because the only true and pure Whovians are five year olds who just want to fight imaginary Daleks and pretend their sunglasses are sonic. We are all the interlopers in their fandom and the only reason they haven’t kicked us out yet is because they know the Doctor wouldn’t.

Rose Tyler fan: Martha Jones needs to shut the fuck up. The Doctor belongs to Rose!

Rose Tyler fan: Martha Jones fans need to kill themselves. Donna Noble fans need to kill themselves. River Song fans need to kill themselves. So do fans of Clara and The Ponds.

Rose Tyler fan: TENROSE IS MY OTP FOREVER! THOSE THAT DON’T APPROVE WILL DIE! TENROSE RULES!

Rose Tyler fan: Only real Whovians ship TenRose. If no one likes that, they can leave the fandom.

Rose Tyler fan: Martha Jones sucks. She can’t love The Doctor, because he loves Rose!

Me: Rose Tyler is a selfish, entitled blond white girl. She’s spoiled and gets everything she wants. She’s influenced her fans to behave like vicious dogs and attack anyone that supports the not-so-popular companions. I have created a separate blog to vent out my immense rage at the shippers and the character because there is too much anger to put on my main blog, and I want to keep my main blog free of vitriol as not to upset my followers. Rose fans are entitled, privileged special snowflakes that think they should have the world handed to them. They think they deserve happiness above everyone else. They’re spoiled little brats that expect everything in the universe. I can see why they adore this girl; she is the DW equivalent to Barbie and Twilight’s Bella Swan. What a disgusting person.

Rose Tyler fans: *block me*

Me: Oh, yeah, that’s right! Go ahead and block me! That’s just gonna wipe away all your problems, isn’t it? Sure; it’s TOTALLY OKAY for YOU to spew hate and disgust towards anyone who is not your precious Saint Rose Tyler, but when someone else spews it out towards ROSE, your solution is to block them! Block, delete, ignore, whatever. No offering to talk it out. No discussion. Just block, delete and ignore. Yellow-bellied coward. Chicken. That’s right; just block and walk away from the problem so “dear little angelic you” doesn’t have to deal with it. Entitled bitch. Stuck-up prat. It makes you SO BRAVE AND HAPPY to block someone hating on your fan favorite. You’re disgusting. You’re toxic. Cruel and aggressive little shits; that’s what you are. Block the problem and it’ll be all better! Only cowards do that. They don’t even bother to discuss the issue. Like blocking people really helps because it prevents you from talking to people. Well, here’s a reality check, “honey.” One of these days, you’re going to meet someone in person who hates Rose and TenRose as much as I do, and it’ll be a lot harder to block them. You won’t be able to just flip a switch and turn off communication. Grow the hell up. Start talking things over instead of hitting a friggin button. Someone is trying to vent out their frustrations to you, so I hope that one day you have the guts to listen!

Martha Jones Appreciation and Thoughts

I am re-watching Doctor Who series three right now, which I haven’t really watched in its entirety since it originally aired. Martha Jones has always been my favorite companion (with Amy Pond falling in right behind her), but boy am I *really* appreciating her now. I think it’s criminal how under-appreciated and unloved she is in this fandom by a huge portion of Whovians. Martha was only with the Doctor ONE YEAR and it was one of the shittiest a companion has ever had.

First of all, traveling through Earth’s past is a challenge for Martha in a way it never was for Rose, Donna, Amy or anyone else. Because they’re WHITE. As much as I think the two part episodes of Human Nature/Family of Blood are absolutely brilliant and heartbreaking, because they really are, I can’t re-watch them. I tried. I start feeling rage as soon as Martha has to deal with all the racist asshats around her. Trapped in effing 1913 in the English countryside surrounded by jerks she can think circles around but who all think she’s dirt under their feet because she’s black–all for the Doctor who is not even properly thankful IMO. What does he even see in Joan who is blander than the blandest bland thing that ever blanded. ugh. I would be done going to the past unless we were going to see dinosaurs. I was sooo glad when they wrote that opening scene in The Shakespeare Code where she asks if she’s going to be sold into slavery and the Doctor is like “just walk around like you own the place, that’s what I do” and it was the most perfect example of white privilege EVER. Thanks, Doctor Who. Now the kiddies know.

Also, she’s traveling with the Doctor during one of the worst years of HIS life. He is just not good company. He’s often dismissive, mean, rude, snappish and a dick to Martha. And right after the whole Family of Blood debacle, it’s Blink (where she’s trapped with Ten in 1969 supporting him by working in a shop), it’s the beginning of the whole Master/Saxon/Year That Never Was craziness with her walking the ENTIRE EARTH  and becoming a living legend, folk hero, and savior. Yes, saving the earth is kind of what companions DO, but let’s remember that Martha is NOT like the others. For one thing: she doesn’t need or want saving. Let’s repeat for emphasis: She. Doesn’t. Need. Saving. Martha, unlike Rose, Donna or Amy, is not running away from her life, or looking for something better, or needing rescue or waiting for anything. She has a good life already with a whole bright future ahead of her. She travels with the Doctor because it’s fun and exciting and she wants to see the universe (not unlike the others), but she doesn’t NEED it. Which is why, unlike the others again, she WALKS AWAY at the end.The only one to do so. Because, dude, it’s not worth it. Not anymore. Not for someone who doesn’t realize what he had until it walked away from him. Not for someone who has too much pride and self-worth to be a doormat for a broken man. Not for someone who was much more of an equal to the Doctor than he ever seemed comfortable with.

And what’s up with people saying they don’t like her solely because of her having a crush on him? Um. Like Rose did, but instead everyone loves her and their epic love of epicness? Conveniently forgetting that he *was* flirty with her and was constantly giving mixed signals? Or…was it because she didn’t fawn over the Doctor and she demanded he tell her things (like at the end of Gridlock where she refuses to move until he tells her about his past) and she didn’t let him get above himself…but then everyone loved it when Donna did that sort of thing too. Yay, they said, someone who wont’ take his crap (or be in love with him)! Even though Martha was not taking his crap first. I’ve also heard people say she’s the least pretty of the new Who female companions and I side-eye that SO HARD. Because I know why people say that. YOU know why, too. BS. Freema is gorgeous. Obvs.

I’m forever pissed at TPTB for doing that stupid Martha/Mickey thing at the end. That does not exist in my head canon. I was so vindicated when I saw Freema at Gally One last year and she confirmed that not only did *she* think it was WTF, but that they only did it for the Smith and Jones joke (hahaha remember how Martha and Ten are also Smith and Jones? yeah…not funny). What would Martha and Mickey even talk about? How awesome Martha is? (which I support btw). No. Martha should have gone to Torchwood full-time. I do absolutely LOVE her relationship with Jack, who properly sees and admires her for the total BAMF that she is. And yes, I ship it. So. Hard. And Team Tardis (Jack/Martha/Ten mmm).

Yes, this is rambly fandom rage and whining and frustration, but I just want everyone to see how awesome Martha is! And love her like I do! I just get tired of the “really??” when I tell people that she’s my fave. Why isn’t she YOUR fave?! So. Can we just have more Martha Jones love in the fandom? Pleeease? /rant

People keep saying that young girls aren’t true whovians and only like New Who because David Tennant and Matt Smith are handsome.

But of course no one has complained that in the last 50 years of the show the companion has been primarily been played by a pretty 20-something girl for the straight male audience.

       So let me explain this. This is a final painting for the course at my school which is a painting only course. In grade 10 I saw final year students paint their paintings and I fell in love. I was only a Whovian and Supernaturalist at the time and I told myself I was going to paint David Tennant as the 10th Doctor. In grade 11 I started watching Sherlock and just fell for Cumberbatch’s performance. No actor has ever gotten my attention so much only David, but I was still keen on painting him at the time. In grade 12 I changed my mind. I observed the show more closely and saw the beautiful contrasts of light and darkness. Not only were the writers and actors remarkably talented so were the directors and camera men/women. Light and darkness are important to the show, it displays the gradation of one life to another. It also explains a lot of Sherlock and I found Benedict’s face to be strangely beautiful. At first he may look odd but to an artist the shapes and colours become something magnificent. Complex and alluring. I found after I painted him, to be something so special and very attractive. For someone to get my attention and give me the power to paint and expand my knowledge proves that Mr. Cumberbatch is not only intelligent and a wonderful actor but an inspiration too. Thank you:)

    So during the time I was painting I wanted to really learn how a painting became a painting, soI took pictures of the process. For most of the course I struggled and mostly cried (lol it was a pain in the butt) but I got through with wonderful friends. One such as Poplerpig. Always hard working this artist doesn’t stop but will for friends who fall. She pushes them back up and makes sure they stay there. Also to my friend Diana who is also the same, but a kick ass painter, so proud of her. And my friend Kassidie the cutest cookie in town. She knows whats up and always made the mood better when it was sticky. She’s a fighter and cares so much about her friends, I’m glad to be one. Also a major shout out to my teacher Mr. Drew whose the best art teacher in the world. Lastly to the fandom, thank you. You guys, this site makes my day puts a smile on my face, it goes to show that fandoms aren’t just fandoms, but families. Thank you.

I try to follow all of the Doctor Who fans on Twitter. I can’t reply to everyone, because it’s going crazy now, but the great thing about it is… just a quick moment with people and bloody hell it makes their day. Those little interactions. They ask you for a follow, and you follow them, they’re over the moon, and you think ‘Wow, man, I’m glad it’s that easy - just a click to put a smile on someone’s face. I try to tell them, 'It’s no big deal, man. I’ll follow you all. I get to see what you’re talking about.’ Most of the time pretty much all they talk about is the show. It keeps me in the loop. I get most of my information about the show from the Whovians. Team TARDIS! I’ve only had a few insults. It’s all right, they don’t insult me as bad as I insult me. They could never be as critical as I am.

Samuel Anderson, DWM 479

Whatever your thoughts on Danny Pink, if you don’t like Samuel Anderson, you are wrong.

While I agree that you’re a Whovian even if you’ve only seen the New Series, I pray to Rassilon, Yetaxa, the Gods of Ragnarok, the Dæmons, Kronos, the Immortals, Xoanon, Kroll, and even the Nimon, that you watch other forms of Doctor Who beyond the New Series, because it is so worth it. I promise.

Hi. Me & friends were arguing over the definition of 'a true Whovian'. I haven't watched episodes that were before Christopher Eccleston era. My friends said I don't fit into the definition. So am I or am I not a Whovian?

You absolutely are a Whovian! Whether you’ve seen one episode or you’ve been watching for your entire life, you’re a Whovian. If you’ve only seen New Who, that’s great. If you’ve seen every single episode and the movie, that’s great too. 

Being a Whovian isn’t about how many episodes you’ve seen but how much you love the show. If you like Doctor Who and want to be a Whovian then congrats, you are one.
