I’ve really gone and done it this time, I’m afraid.
For obvious reasons.
The manipulation and colouring is all mine.
Be the villain you were born to be. Stop waiting for someone to come along and corrupt you. Succumb to the darkness yourself.
This is surprisingly motivating.
She’s positive, ambitious and full of conviction and confidence. She’s ballsy and goes with her gut instinct. She’s a good character to relate to or aspire to.
Billie Piper, on Rose Tyler (via positiverosetyler)
Rose looks at the Doctor expectantly, eyes bright. “We’re getting ready to leave,” he says, his lip twitching in what could be a grin. “But…you could come with us.”
Sarah Jane looks around the unfamiliar room, taking in the details she’d missed upon entering - the steely grated floor, the luminescent blue coming from the time rotor, the pink hoodie thrown carelessly over a rail. When she meets the Doctor’s eyes they’re unfamiliar as well, but she thinks she could like learning what’s behind them after all these years.
She could never say no to an adventure; if she’s honest, she could never say no to him, but right now that doesn’t feel like a bad thing.
"Maybe one trip," she says.
Goodness. That is a lot of love, dash.
Thanks, y’all, and hello to my new followers! <3
It’s all yours - Planet Earth. Now that’s a retirement plan. But just you be careful, though. No interfering. I don’t want any trouble. Just… just have a nice life.
Oh Doctor, I will make you proud.
GUYS, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE.
MR. COPPER WENT ON TO CREATE THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION.
YOU KNOW, THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION WHICH INVENTED THE SUBWAVE NETWORK.
THE SUBWAVE NETWORK WHICH HARRIET JONES USED IN ‘THE STOLEN EARTH’ TO BRING THE DOCTOR BACK TO EARTH TO FIGHT THE DALEK INVASION AND STOP THE REALITY BOMB.
MR. COPPER IS THE BIGGEST UNSUNG HERO IN DOCTOR WHO.
» January: Doctor x Rose Fic Writer's Workshop
Hello everyone! I wanted to propose an activity that I think will be fun and would also allow those of us who write fic to strengthen friendships and grow as writers. Beginning in the second week of January, I’d like to have a weekly writer’s workshop for a total of four weeks….
"…every six months."
Top five things that surprised you about 2013?
1. How easy it was. I didn’t talk about it much here, but the last half of 2012 was a giant clusterfuck for me—‘very difficult’ would be an understatement, emotionally, psychologically, all of it. Though I’m having some family difficulties now, it’s a cakewalk compared to last year.
2. How hard it was. I have worked my tail off this year! I came off an intense spring quarter and immediately started an intense summer internship. I got a break in between, but fall quarter has been incredibly taxing too. Three 400 level classes, one 500 level/grad class, work, and research—it was a lot, even before applying for grad schools and fellowships.
3. How easy the hard things are when you’re really really into them. I was usually the one offering to stay late at NASA—it was taxing but not draining, you know? I could have gone longer. A couple times my PI was like, no, *i* need to go and get some rest. We’ll continue tomorrow. And that was ok, but I was surprised and pleased to find out that my limits were not where I thought they might have been. This bodes well for my prospects of doing independent research later. It’s a thing I notice now, too, back at school—I do my job and hardly notice the time passing. I do have to watch my tendency to run myself into the ground though. :|
4. How much fun it is to fanfic. I missed this SO much.
5. How much sleep I didn’t get. *sadface*

This morning there’s snow everywhere. We remark on it.
You tell me you didn’t sleep well. I say
I didn’t either. You had a terrible night. “Me too.”
We’re extraordinarily calm and tender with each other
as if sensing the other’s rickety state of mind.
As if we knew what the other was feeling. We don’t,
of course. We never do. No matter.
It’s the tenderness I care about. That’s the gift
this morning that moves and holds me.
Same as every morning.

Ask me top 5 _____ of 2013
Not the same anon as before, but from what I have seen in interviews with female coworkers of Capaldi, he is not exactly the type of man who stands for sexism. In fact, they mentioned that he even adlibbed a couple of lines in The Thick of It and Fortysomething because the original lines were ridiculously sexist. So I suppose that if he actually frowns upon such writing, maybe we can see him trying to change the obvious sexist, heteronormative and non-inclusive tones in Moffat's writing?
hopefully! i am cautiously optimistic
