steven moffat does not understand the Doctor.
the Doctor is a mercurial strange and tricksy being. the doctor does not always play by human rules or any rules at all
but at heart, the doctor is good. the doctor cares.
not about whether people are sexy or acquiescent or…
think of it: an aromantic magical girl
"love? you talk so much about this "love", you’ve never experienced it! you know it’s not real!" sneers the villain
"that’s not true!" she says in true anime protagonist fashion. "i have the love for my friends, for my family, for the people i’m trying to save! and that’s more than enough to defeat you!"
and then she totally kicks his ass in a shower of glitter and hearts
The sun’ll come out tomorrow
Heaven-bent to take my hand
The season is upon us now
Who knows what tomorrow brings?
You’re the bravest of hearts.
Send me a •3• and I will put my playlist on shuffle, write down the first line of five songs and give it to your muse as a poem from mine
There needs to be something in between BroTP and OTP when it comes to shipping. Something that’s not quite romantic, but at the same time, friendship doesn’t even come close to defining it.
Because I have so many ships that I feel that way about. Those ships where I want to see them cuddle and be together forever and be dorks around each other because they love each other so much and they need each other but it’s not romantic and that’s okay.
I really really love all the posts lately about people talking about their seual/romantic orientations and gender identities because a) it’s really useful to write this stuff out, and b) it reminds me that there are other people who can’t easily just describe themselves with two or three words. And it’s nice to feel that.
NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED.
WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED
but it’s 65% more bullet per bullet
Wait a second are you telling me
that Portal is such a perfect goddamn game that they even have an explanation for why a video game protagonist can withstand being shot multiple times??????????
