cutie lil kid with a huge destiny
He was thrown into this world without explanation
but he managed. He took it all in stride, even the weird bits
He was smart
Really smart. And he kept his cool, through everything.
He lost so much
but he stayed strong. He gave up everything.
Because the world needed him.
You are family, Kevin.
And you put up with a lot
We will always remember you, and we will always love you.
I DON’T THINK NON-WHOVIANS UNDERSTAND OUR TERROR LIKE JESUS FUCKING CHRIST YOU CAN HATE ON MOFFAT ALL YOU WANT BUT WHEN HE WRITES EPISODES IN RTD’S ERA (not to mention the non-canon spoof) HE MAKES TERRIFYING ANTAGONISTS AND IT SERIOUSLY SCARES THE SHIT OUT OF YOU
No, it’s RIDICULOUS. What Moffat writes aren’t “terrifying” creatures (terrifying to whom btw, 2nd graders?) … what Moffat writes is an idiot Doctor. The most brilliant man in the universe who 1) doesn’t remember that the boy’s room is the boy’s room (TEC/TDD), 2) doesn’t remember that a fireplace with a time delay has a time delay (GitF), 3) doesn’t remember that books are made of paper (SitL/FotD), and 4) doesn’t remember that the person all his enemies hate is … himself (TBB).
Idk what planet you are on that this equates “terrifying” - what it really equates is idiotic, plot-device-y and completely unbelievable
I mentioned a lot of this before in my follower milestone thing, but you are wonderful!! You are probably my most fantabulously supportive follower, particularly in terms of writing. I’m not even kidding a little bit here, writers like me tend to be tremendously full of self-doubt, and you just send me these gorgeous, supportive and insightful asks, always just at the right minute. And it really puts a smile on my face - whenever I see an ask from you, I just know it is going to be really really nice! Like a big e-hug! You are kind and great and clearly VERY thoughtful - you’re wonderful!!
Omgosh where to begin…
OK first of all, you are an AMAZING beta. You constantly push me, and you’re always straight with me, and specific, and you make my writing so much more polished than it would be otherwise. You bend over backwards to help me work out any and all jitters and kinks and talk through things (even off-‘screen’ actions of characters — you spent over an hour doing that re Rose, and you’re amazing for it. That helped me SO MUCH, and I’d still probably be hemming and hawing over that chapter if it weren’t for you). You’re very aware of things I’m sensitive about, and … you color-coded your comments to give me better feedback!! I mean, talk about going above and beyond. (Plus, how did you even do that? You’re like MS Word Goddess as well. Lol I tried to do the same for BDTS but couldn’t figure it out). I’m sorta scared someone is gonna steal you away as their beta lol … you’re incredible!!
Second of all, you are an awesome writer. Your attention to characterization and in-universe details is fantastic, and your efforts really make your writing shine. You have great concepts, and great execution, and it is a privilege to be your beta as well!
Third of all, you are a fantastic and talented artist. You can tell the attention to detail that you put into everything you do — and I love that I can see one of your pieces of art on my dash and just know it’s yours. You have a distinct style, and I love it! Plus I adore that you contribute to other writers as well by taking requests to doodle scenes from fics - which is basically you and your amazing art helping to raise others up. It is so … you!! And I love that.
All of that has led to this last point — last, but not least, you are a great friend. I love chatting with you, and texting with you — you are one of the most non-judgy people I know here, and you accept me as myself.
My neurotic, high-strung, wordy, and occasionally tetchy and oversensitive self. You’re incredibly caring in everything you do, and that really shines through. I *love* working with you. And I’m so grateful to spooky for hooking us up!!! =D
I love your gifsets (which everyone should check out here) - it’s really rare to find someone with your talent who gifs both Nu and Classic Who. And your “updated” 50th anniversary poster with Tennant with the ponytail made me guffaw out loud - I love that you can do serious as well as cracktastic!!!
You are so nice!! And you are a great writer!! (Shameless plug for the secret santa TenToo/Rose ficlet you wrote for me last year!) And you gave me lots of tips on cool places to go in Chicago when I went there! I really like your fics, and chatting with you … and … yeah!! =)
