Be Brave

Jessica. 22. College student and fanfiction writer. Hardcore Ten x Rose shipper, but expect a little of everything from Doctor Who. And that extends to everything David Tennant and Billie Piper.


Not really a Moffat friendly blog. But I don't take my general disappointment out on the characters, so Eleven, Amy, Rory, River, and Clara do pop up on occasion. Because they're still my babies and I still love them. (And Rose x Clara. Yum).

Also quite passionate about Buffy, Harry Potter, Sherlock, and Marvel (and I can’t promise that other fandoms won’t pop up from time to time either). But feel safe knowing this is blog is approx. 99% Doctor Who and 95% of that is Rose and Ten(too).

So I saw your description says you like Rose x Clara? does that mean you like reading fic about them? Because I'm thinking of writing some...

Yaaaaassssssss! There is such a shortage of Clara and Rose fics out there, but I would be all over that. Link it to me if you ever do write it.

"There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands."

                                                                              -Steven Moffat [x]

I just want to frame that and hang it on the wall of every Moffat apologist, so they can wake up and look at that every morning. 

As a woman who grew up in a household with a very 50’s style gender bias (dad was the boss and breadwinner while mom cooked and cleaned, I became an artist and my brother is an engineer), Moffat’s quote sounds very familiar. There are a lot of people—both men and women—who still believe this kind of thing. There are also men and women to whom it applies. It does not, however, apply to many others. It’s just a stereotype. That’s what all stereotypes are. All people have stereotypes, even when we try hard not to. 

I can definitely say that moffat’s quote does not describe my college experience. It was always the guys hunting for a bride while the girls tried to study. (And I sure had more needy boyfriends than a girl could have the patience to deal with.) Things have changed. 

I’m not apologizing for moffat, because I don’t care if he believes that. My dad does too. Lots of people do. So what? My life proves them wrong. 

It annoys the heck out of me when moffat sexualizes Doctor Who in any way, just like it annoys the heck out of me when all of the people who hate moffat sexualize the show in fanfiction and art and whatever else. You’re all just as bad as eachother (grammar, forgive me). You’re all wonderful people too. That’s the creepy thing about people. Almost every one of us is amazingly loving and wonderful while still being kind of creepy and evil at the same time—and it’s a daily internal struggle to see which side wins out. 

What it comes down to is that there’s no reason to hate someone for something they believe. You can disagree with them, maybe tell them you disagree with them if you happen to meet them, but spreading hate about them online or anywhere else just makes you a hateful person (and also means your nasty side just won, which is best avoided). 

This was really just a mini-rant for me to figure out my own thoughts on the subject. Sorry about putting it on this post. I suppose you weren’t being hateful, exactly. That’s nice of you. 

I hope anyone who reads this has a wonderful day. I’m going to go finish my coffee now.

"Trust me on this" — Doctor Who underrated moments

For all this episode gets attention for its re-raising of the Father’s Day era question of “will Rose choose the Doctor or Pete?” and for resolving Mickey and Rose’s on-again-off-again relationship, Mickey Smith really doesn’t get enough attention (or credit) here.

At this moment in the episode, Rose is in a triangle (literally, from the way this scene is filmed), with three men—Pete (her alt!dad in the Vitex ad), Ten, and Mickey. Mickey—her past—is at her back. Ten—her present and future—is in front of her. The relationship triangle at this point between Ten/Rose/Mickey is still unresolved, and it’s interesting to note that the two men are visually juxtaposed here as well, both wearing brown and blue, both giving Rose all their attention. (And, for the record—Billie Piper confirmed on Doctor Who Confidential that the wardrobe staff chose outfits to compliment character arcs—the outfits weren’t random, according to her).

But it’s not just Mickey and Ten’s clothing that is parallel here. Note their actions as well. You can’t see it too well here, but Ten has grabbed Rose by her upper arms (you can see his thumb holding her in the top gif)—he’s stern here, and what he’s saying makes sense but damn… it’s a bit cold. Meanwhile, Mickey’s facial reactions to Ten’s words look even more pained than Rose’s do—note the clench of his jaw, the way his eyes drop, how he shuffles uncomfortably at Ten’s words. Like Ten, he touches Rose as well—but instead of being a demanding action like Ten’s, it’s a consoling squeeze to the shoulder, a supportive, protective gesture.

Mickey is the only man in this scene that doesn’t TELL Rose to “trust him” (Pete does via the ad, and Ten does in the dialogue). He doesn’t have to. Look at his actions, and his empathy. Mickey—both literally and figuratively here—SHOWS us here that no matter what, he has Rose’s back.
