i’m glad that fucking doge meme has finally maybe died down
"He wouldn’t. He wouldn’t. I don’t care what’s at stake, he’s not going to do it. So that was the story – of course he never did that. He couldn’t have. He’s the Doctor, he’s the man who doesn’t do that. He’s defined by the fact that he doesn’t do that. Whatever the cost, he will find another way. So it had to be the story of what really happened that he’s forgotten.”
I don’t know if you’ve seen this yet or not. Bold emphasis mine.
THIS MAKES ME WANT TO FLY INTO A RAGEEEEE.
HE DID DO IT. FOR 8 YEARS HE HAS DONE IT AND DOZENS OF PEOPLE SPENT YEARS CRAFTING HIS STORY AND HIS PAIN AND HIS RECOVERY AND NOW ROSE APPARENTLY JUST HEALED HIS FAKE MEMORY WIPED ANGST FFS
JFC WHAT THE HELL EVEN?!?
More evidence that Moffat can’t fathom three-dimensional characters.
There’s just one thing left to say:
The end does not justify the means.
I feel like if you asked Moffat to describe Clara he’d be all: oh she’s funny and witty and sexy and actiony and flirty and did I mention pretty??? oh and she loves the Doctor oh and she’s impossible, and she’s bossy and did I mention the dads will love her? did I mention she’s pretty? did I mention that she’s feisty? fiesty and pretty, yeah! basically 10/10 would bang, soooo sexy, her skirt’s so tight! tee hee! naughty clara!
Whereas if you asked RTD to describe Rose he’d end up going off on some three hour love declaration about her flaws and her weaknesses and her beauty and her humanity and her background and her family and where she lived and her past loves and food she enjoys and music she likes and jokes she finds funny and her delicious selfishness but also her immense compassion and her wicked eye make up and her political opinions and her mixed emotions for her father and her strength but also her vulnerability and her uncertainty and her conflicting natures of wanting freedom and love, but also wanting to be there for her mother, and being torn between those two lives and being oh-so-young but so very brave.
And I think that kind of sums up their approaches when it comes to lady characters.
When I heard that I get to hang out with my kid, with my Moke, that was the kicker right there. This incredible creature that I happen to live with, that I wake up every morning with him on my face. He is my valium. He sedates me.
The worst thing for Elena Gilbert is the two of you.
Turn around, look. Oh for god’s sake, just turn around!
always have to have the last word, don’t you? yes!
