Thank you I am glad you like it! It was … challenging, haha =)
Make me choose between 2 things:
The Moment/Bad Wolfor Rose Tyler?
Title: Gravity (Part 6/?)
Summary: —AU, all human— Awkward new boy John Noble isn’t expecting much out of his new school — and his lack of expectations are fulfilled when he’s targeted by a bully on the first day. What takes him by surprise is pretty, popular Rose Tyler coming to his rescue.
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler
*******WARNING: Brief Partner Abuse*******
“God,” Rose groaned as she dropped her head against her book. She was exhausted, and she was burned out. She couldn’t handle any more math.
“Come on, head up,” John coaxed gently, poking the top of her head. “You can do this. Just twenty more minutes and we’ll be done for the day.”
“I’m so tired…”
“Well maybe you should get a little more sleep tonight.” He knew she snuck out a lot to meet Jimmy. He tried not to be too bitter about it, but sometimes he couldn’t help it.
He just didn’t understand how Jimmy had ended up with somebody as wonderful as Rose. It wasn’t fair.
Since I have just hit 300 followers I thought I would do a fic rec with list of with some of my favourite fanfics. Beware there will be a lot, so here it is. Most of these are amazing fics and I adore them.
This fic rec list is dedicated to Tentoo. Because I love him. And I’ve read so many fics of him that I think he deserves his own list.
That is seriously frightening.
au: DI Hardy/Belle. A trainee. An affair. A murder.
So I’ve hidden the username here because the point is not to engage this person’s vitriol and stupidity, but rather to remind my followers that people (men? judging by their blog) in fact do apparently use these things as an argument.
I feel like I could just present this without comment—and, #1 and #3 are so incredibly ridiculous that I’ll do just that.
For #2… I feel like I just need to reiterate Amy Pond appears sexual because she is presented sexually. I’ve written an entire meta about this here. The problem is not that she wears short skirts (as did Rose Tyler, who received none of this flack)—the problem is that she’s presented repeatedly (both in canon and in Moffat’s interviews) as leggy, naughty, sexy, and “bad”. And that these traits are the most important things about her.
For the last comment tho—jfc this is a family show. I find it funny how when it suits them people call it a “children’s show” if they don’t want to address questions of moral complexity, or in this case, an “adult’s show” if they don’t want to address the simple fact that 1) the male gaze and 2) introducing a character from a sexual POV might kinda be considered a wee bit inappropriate for children. Addressing one show does not diminish the problems seen in other shows, but quite simply addresses that one show, and begins to chip away at a big problem.
