4 and 12 are spot on.
Dad, if you see this, please read.
oh my gods all of this is my mother. just my mother.
2 & 8. My Mum has three kids, her first born who does no wrong, her middle child and her first boy who is her ‘baby’ at 14 and lives on the excuse boys will be boys. Guess who I am.
OK guys. This moment does not have enough love. In fact, it has some unfortunate anti-love that I aim to resolve here.
Yes, this episode heavily references Girl in the Fireplace. And yes, that episode is pretty much the most anti-shippy thing to happen in canon for Doctor/Rose.
BUT THIS MOMENT IS GREAT AND WE DOCTOR/ROSE SHIPPERS SHOULD LOVE IT TO PIECES LET ME EXPLAIN!!!!
Twelve can’t remember Clara’s name at first. Nor Vastra nor Jenny nor Strax. He leaves Clara in danger and he won’t even give her the screwdriver. He does questionable things—he’s darker, I get that.
But even so, and even though he’s trying to figure things out with the bad guy, and does not have all his memories intact (‘Handles’? Really, Doctor??) he CANNOT leave the bunch of roses on the floor.
The bunch of yellow roses—yellow which signifies remembrance. There are centuries-old ballads (‘Round Her Neck She Wears a Yeller Ribbon’) and old movies (‘She Wore a Yellow Ribbon’) and folk songs (‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree’) all about yellow being the color of remembrance—specifically in all these pop-culture cases, remembrance of a lost love.
And as he’s struggling to remember why droids harvesting parts rings a bell with him, does he look at the droid? No. Does he have flashbacks to women making double entendres with cleavage spilling out? No. (And the eventual reference to MdP is blah blah bland). But what does he do? He twirls the roses and holds them just a little bit closer. This is so reminiscent of the Journal of Impossible Things, where even as a human Ten can’t remember the name of the TARDIS, or the sonic screwdriver—but he keeps drawing roses in his journal and hers is the only face he can canonically put a name to.
Moffat may be many, many things, and do many, many things that I do not particularly like, but this… this is pretty awesome guys. This isn’t anti-shippy at all. This is shippy and sweet and subtle in the extreme.
And I love it and I really think you should too <3
These are all so easy and healthy for you 💕
HAH this is exactly what I’ve been doing since last August. this is the reason why I put off 30lbs and still counting. glad I’m doing it right
Sulley should have shaved the legs and arms
But isn’t Cinderella blonde?
I’ve said it before and I will say it until the day I die: Elsa’s hair was NOT WHITE!!! Do you want to see what WHITE hair looks like?!?!? Look at Anna right before she goes full on icicle, THAT’S white hair!!
A man just walked past me and said “excuse me, but you look very nice tonight darlin” I said thank you and he said you’re welcome and walked off. And that is how you compliment a woman without harassing them
No, that is still unsolicited, and thus, harassment. No amount of “darlins” is gonna make me not want to punch your ass for coming on to me without provocation.
so i haven’t updated this tumblr in forever. it’s filled with really old (awful!) work. anyway, here are some choice moments from my film i’ve been working on. it’s almost in sequence, but i had to cut out a few scenes to adhere to tumblr’s strict image guidelines without sacrificing too much quality. how do gifs work again?
Hey check out the work from a cool LCAD alumni, dawg.
aaaaah this is the sort of 3D animation I wanna seeeee
(and do, honestly)
