I wish I lived in fictional new york, it sounds really easy to succeed there
Fandoms may have differences but one thing we all have in common.
special talents: eating while watching hannibal
I don’t see how this is a special talent the show makes me hungry all the fucking time. I don’t think I’d even hesitate to knowingly eat human meat prepared by Hannibal Lecter, that shit looks delicious.
*ahem- 50 year old…
But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’
I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with
Actually I remember them flirting for most of the episode but otherwise yeah all of this.
"Woman?” She chuckled. “Is that meant to insult me? I would return the slap, if I took you for a man."
All the fucking time :(
on a scale from Matilda to Carrie how well do you handle having telekinesis and terrible parents
Grains? Crust, check. Dairy? Cheese, totally legit. Protein? If you don’t have meat on your pizza don’t talk to me.* Fruits? Veggies? Tomato sauce counts as both since tomatoes are categorically blurry. We got this.
* - if you don’t eat meat on pizza because you don’t eat meat in general you can still talk to me.
And Tyrion’s just like “Respect.”
If anyone can appreciate the value of a well delivered backhanded compliment, it’s Tyrion.
Look at his mouth. If he weren’t convinced that he’d die that night, that might’ve actually been a smirk.
