Happy 31st Birthday, Matsumoto Jun!❤










aka “Elitism is my middle name”

I like how Moffat would say that Reinette - a female character that he wrote into the show - is obviously a perfect match for the Doctor based on her level of ‘civilization’ and education.

As opposed to oh say…Rose Tyler - a lower-class girl who never went to university - whom the Doctor actually fell in love with and did settle down with in another universe.

This quote just has it all, doesn’t it?

- The elitism

- The dig at Rose Tyler and RTD, by extension

- The elevation of ‘his’ character at the expense of existing ones.

- The implication that Madame de Pompadour - one of the most powerful women in the country - would of course drop everything she had worked for to go and ‘settle down’ with a man who is basically a homeless spacehobo.

People who call Moffat a talentless hack are mistaken.  It takes some skill to cram that much fail into just three sentences.

Hah, excellent Moffat-criticism here. He is so petty, and so unequipped to write insightful sci-fi.

Like, okay, let’s pretend for a second that by “educated and civilised” he means “has a lot of knowledge and social insight” (which is a valid thing to look for in a romantic partner) rather than, you know, “rich, fancy and subservient” (which is what Moffat expects people to look for in a romantic partner).

… I really don’t think that an 18th century aristocrat has more understanding of science and society than a 21st person without A levels but with a working television. And in any case, if the Doctor was really looking for people who are Intellectual Equals, he’d surely look in the future, when people understand time travel, and have wikipedia installed in their brains, or whatever. Or AIs! I can’t imagine anyone more educated and ‘civilised’ than AI people!

Just, one thing I really loved about RTD’s Who arcs - which Moffat clearly didn’t understand at all - was that EVERYTHING the companions knew was useful - Harry Potter trivia! Game-show quickness! Fast typing! - and that the, like, real-world hierarchy of skills and marketability was always shown as less important than courage and compassion.



I’m imagining the real Madame de Pompadour and how very unimpressed she would be by Steven Moffat declaring his ~admiration for her, but


did this man just admit that he think the position of Companion is actually the Doctor’s maîtresse-en-titre?  Jesus wept.

That is exactly what this man thinks, and what he writes also. He thinks women are wired to ‘cling’ and men are wired to want to escape them, and the only way a relationship can be agreeable to both parties is if the woman accepts that they can only spend time together when the dude initiates it.

… Suddenly I am kinda surprised that Sherlock and Irene didn’t set up a long-distance relationship where she spends her days in an orientalist parody of a villa, waiting for Sherlock and passing the time taking luxurious bubble-baths and emotionlessly spanking female nobility.

Oh my god this is some sick shit— and really, really, really highlights how much Moffat doesn’t understand the fundamental heart of the show he’s fucking running. If the Doctor was so hot for intelligent, well educated, civilized women why the fuck did he ever leave his home planet? Why has he only ever had one Gallifreyan companion after he left his granddaughter to go her own way? Romana was foisted on him by the time lord ellimist, he didn’t go picking her out of a catalogue. 

The Doctor runs around with soldiers and schoolkids and teachers and sailors and students and journalists and shop girls and alien refugees and orphans and robot dogs and barbarians and private detective penguins and renegade archaeologists. If he wanted a slice of properly civilized girlfriend he had the whole universe to go pick one out from, and he never did till Moffat wrote him launching himself smooch-first at the lady in the fancy dress and historically inaccurate boobies.

Goddamn I am so mad. 

Oh my god. OH my GOD. If you even like moffat, just read this. WHAT A FUCKING ASS> I AM SO MAD

People who call Moffat a talentless hack are mistaken.  It takes some skill to cram that much fail into just three sentences.

when is moffat gonna stop trying to suck his own dick

What’s ironic is the way that Moffat wrote Madame de Pompadour, we didn’t even SEE how intelligent and savvy she was. She spent the entire episode pining after the Doctor, a man she met like four times in her life for a maximum of a few hours each visit, and Moffat’s like “here’s three lines of dialogue from the Doctor talking about how cool she was historically, but we don’t actually need to SHOW THAT in the episode”. It was a degrading portrayal of a fascinating historical figure. But oh her speech is all proper and smart sounding, and we even have a scene where she’s talking to the Doctor’s ‘low class’ companion (Rose) and all Rose can do is be like “yeh” because she’s not ‘well spoken’ so that obviously shows how fab she is. 

But UGH YEAH this reeks of elitism, and I’m not down with that. Even Martha, who was a doctor in training, wasn’t valued by the narrative just because she’s ‘smart’, but because of the person she was on the whole. 

(Did he say this before or after JE? Because if it’s after, he’s just blatantly denying canon since the duplicate Doctor DID settle down with a girl ‘not like that’. Then again this is the guy who said that JE was the Doctor’s way of ‘getting rid of a clingy girlfriend’ so god knows.)

Hey I just made a Fairies [フェアリーズ] confession blog

Please send your confessions !! 

Honestly, Fairies didn’t need a tumblr like this. Confession blogs are always only used to spread hatred. To give anonymous trolls a means to express themselves and hurt the fandom. If you are a Fairies fan, you shouldn’t run a blog like this because you will be HELPING Fairies haters to spread the hate. Fandoms are better off without confession blogs.
