you know, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Clara Oswald, almost certainly the sweetest/kindest companion in NewWho is probably the most criticized

look at society’s general reaction cynisicm vs. optimism
look at the fact that as a general rule people decide that kind = flat/boring

heck, look at the way the Who fandom has historically treated gentler girl characters — Clara follows in a long tradition of ladies who are looked down upon and called bad/boring companions by critics just because of their personality: Victoria Waterfield, Nyssa of Traken, Melanie Bush…

I want some more appreciation for the kindest ladies in Dr Who

so I might possibly have figured out that if you drag your screen on mobile, but not quite far enough for your icon to disappear, it goes transparent

and I might also be a massive dork

but I definitely regret nothing

These covers for a Chinese edition of The Lord of the Rings, by Jian Guo, have been all over my Twitter feed, but I like them so much I’m going to post them anyway.

what i mean when i call a character perfect is “wow look at how flawed you are, how broken and three dimensional and well written. look how much of a disaster you are and how you are constantly torn between right and wrong and you make so many mistakes along the way wow look how human you are”

so basically when i say they are perfect what i mean is thank god they aren’t
