I want a Twelfth Doctor that is fully concious of the fact that he is being written by Moffat.
And it pisses him off.
"Oh, a woman. Let me guess, you fancy me? Am I sexy? Do you want to grind against me and call me a clever boy? You come near me and I will delete you from time. How? Who the fuck knows? It won’t be explained. You won’t be explained. You’ll just be gone. Gone to a sexy dimension.’
I want a female companion who is fully conscious of the fact that she is being written by Moffat.
"Oh, I suppose this is the part where I swoon now. Where I fall in love with you regardless of my previously-indicated preference towards women, or any other love interest I may have, because you’re so sexy and mysterious and distinguished and all of my character traits are just props in a male fantasy about manic pixie dream girls. I suppose this is the part where I get put into peril and scream and you have to save me, and then something horrifying and unexplained happens to me that makes me interesting and special, because an ordinary, boring shopgirl could never, ever be worth you taking on a wild adventure."
During Jamie and Zoe's time in the Tardis, they both came to terms with their sexual attractions: Jamie finally feels comfortable liking the occasional boy, and Zoe's flings with women made perfect sense to her. What pained the Doctor the most is when the Time Lords wiped their memories, their self realizations went away too, leaving the pair to feel just as confused and uncomfortable as they were before.
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise
Fascinated as I am by internet linguistics (and as much as I use them), I do think people need to learn how the language they’re using works before attempting it. As the chair of a fair-sized convention, I get lots of emails that are basically word salad because the people writing them threw all grammar out the window, including our newly-constructed internet grammar. Learning communication in current English is helpful outside the bubble of social media.
I was just sifting through a folder full of old docs that I haven’t touched since my college days, and I stumbled across the fanfic I wrote (and never completed) that served as the inspiration for my old, scrapped MGS3 fancomic The Cobra Days.
I'm so disappointed the non-tame stuff hasn't made it online, I'd love to see that. That's not weird is it? And yes please go ahead and answer that publicly if you'd like!
Weeeeeeeeell… what happens at Chicago TARDIS must stay there apparently. No, actually there was just a lot of fairly normal romantic stuff, and I’m not even sure except once whether anyone was taking pictures (at one point, we were sitting together in the hall, and a young lady who was obviously a shipper came up all flustered to ask us for a picture; marchingintime asked our usual “how close, scale of 1 to 10”, and she said “10”, so she got a kissing picture). There was also the masquerade (in which I was dragged on stage by the Master, fun stuff) of which I do actually have two not-great pictures and the one good one I already posted. And there was the dancing with Lucy when I was the Master, but I haven’t found the video footage of that yet.
What I’d REALLY like to see and don’t think anyone got was the end of my song at karaoke. Marchingintime got closer and closer to the stage, and when I finished, I flashed her a big smile, and she stomped angrily onto the stage, took me by the lapels and kissed me. It was awesome because it got this big cheer and distracted people from the Dalek which had entered the room.
Other than that, well, you may have to wait for a future photo shoot because there may or may not have been cameras present.
This is completely random and irrelevant and I'm sorry but I can't stop reading your name as sly the geek and slythe the geek and so thought that was something you should know as it boggles with my brain okbye.
It’s “Slyth” and “geek”. “Slyth” as in “Slytherin”. But pronounce it how you like. Just don’t call me “Trent”. ;)
Heya! Glad to find your blog again. Super stoked to be headed to Kawa Kon this upcoming winter, and am hoping to bust out a Mabel from Gravity Falls! Anyway, just wanted to say the last time I went was absolutely phenomenal, and I'm glad to be coming again. Thanks, cheers!
ok this is serious guys…. why is there so much Doctor/Master stuff on my dash…?? I enjoy it so much, but seriously…it feels like a sort of boom…. wait…is this getting popular?…
Do people actually start to understand why they are so perfect??… Did my little presentation cause something ( oh yes very egocentric of me..but I never expected to get it more than 50 notes or so..I’m kind of overwhelmed by it alright?) Is it just because Mof give a very clear opportunity for Kosch to return?? Or did I just started to follow the right people??
Rassilon..you …all of you…..I’m a ball of feels here because of you!! Please never stop!!
For me, it’s because of Chicago TARDIS, but I liked your presentation.
