Do you know I haven’t been born yet? And to you I’ve been dead a hundred billion years.
My First Doctor: Nine
It’s like when you’re a kid. The first time they tell you that the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it ‘cause everything looks like it’s standin’ still. I can feel it. The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinnin’ at 1,000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour, and I can feel it. We’re fallin’ through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… That’s who I am.
Lestrade’s phone passcode is totally “Greg” because the only person to try to hack his phone would be Sherlock and it’s the one thing he doesn’t know.
EXCUSE ME BUT THIS RING. NO ONE NOTICED IT?????
Actually I’ve seen people mention it since the first episode.
It’s Capaldi’s wedding ring. He never takes it off, even when acting.
To add to the story, he refuses to take it off because when his acting career was struggling, his wife never gave up on him. When he landed his first major gig, he decided to not take it off, to represent he was there because of his wife’s support.
They posted this article basically accusing the writers and cast of OUAT and the fans who do not support SwanQueen of bullying and harassment of the LGBT community. Not only did the writer of this article act as if a fanon ship should be entitled to be represented and coddled by OUAT cast, writers, and its fans, but specifically pointed out tweets Jennifer Morrison made regarding the debacle of not attending an interview about SQ. They essentially painted a target on her back of bullying LGBT fans because she doesn’t pay attention to their fanon ship while promoting the canon ship she is a part of on the show. And yet Lana, the other half of this ship who has also expressed the view that SQ isn’t happening and who supports OutlawQueen isn’t mentioned.
Also, note that they encourage the fans to rise up against this treatment and to continue the behaviour that has caused nothing but tension and disturbance in the fandom because of this ship while mentioning NOTHING WHATSOEVER about Mulan and Aurora, who canonically had romantic feelings and who we should be eager to see getting the limelight again. Nor does it ask us to fight for LGBT representation in general. It is specifically SQ propaganda, demanding the ship get attention it does not deserve.
If this was solely about LGBT representation there would be no issue. But this is misinformation, painting the SQ fandom as victims of bullying purely because the ship they specifically want isn’t happening or being noticed. No one is ENTITLED to have their ship happen. No fanon ship is ENTITLED to be talked about, validated or recognised by writers or cast members. Fight for representation all you want. But there is NO REASON that two PARTICULAR CHARACTERS WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN PORTRAYED AS CANONICALLY STRAIGHT SHOULD BE FORCED INTO A RELATIONSHIP TO TICK THE BOX OF REPRESENTATION. ESPECIALLY WHEN SAID SHIP IS A VERY BAD EXAMPLE OF A HEALTHY AND LOVING LGBT RELATIONSHIP.
I stepped away for a while but I’m still seething over it so apologies for the outburst.
Seriously, read that last paragraph again. It is extremely insulting and all but names JMO as a bully. And actors CAN CERTAINLY be biased. They are allowed their opinions and they are allowed to promote the canon show, doubly so if they personally enjoy and support it. This coddling mentality among people in fandom about writers and cast being impartial to ships needs to fucking stop.
I try really hard to keep this blog positive but I can’t sit back and let this go by…Jen deserves to be treated fairly and this was borderline slander and certainly mud slinging …I am horrified by this one sided article
Dear STFU-Moffat and associates,
From now on, I insist you describe Steven Moffat as “Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat.” Just to make sure you’re being fair.
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat is a queerbaiting hack
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat’s writing features sexism and overly complicated plots that don’t really make any sense.
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat has characters needlessly tell the viewer information that he should be showing them.
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat is incapable of creating real emotional stakes in his stories.
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat calls teenage mother a ‘slut’ in DVD commentary
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat says bisexuals are too busy having sex to watch television, and therefore don’t need representing.
Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat thinks asexuals are too boring to write about.
And this is a great example of how argumentum ad populum is indeed a fallacy.
DC is being all gritty and “realistic” and Marvel just had a movie where the galaxy is saved by a dance-off and the power of friendship
And neither one of them can imagine a world either gritty and realistic enough or fun and fantastic enough in which a woman or a person of color is the hero.
one of them had a green woman
"You’re not like other girls"
Yes actually I am. Girls are awesome, shut the fuck up.
