like a fireworks factory on fire
This is probably going to go a lot easier once we all accept that I'm not entirely sane. My friends are the best part of me; otherwise there's my attempts at wittiness to look forward to. Sorry for the random nature of my blogging and the occasional Classic Who liveblogging spams!

He’s the most amazing, brilliant, annoying man I’ve ever met. He’s like heaven and earth all rolled up in tight trousers.

We’re falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… That’s who I am.

#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:






Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling.  Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*.  She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.

/w martha



/w donna




and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:

I need a fic where Ten had adventures with Polly sometime during the 2009 specials.

(THIS IS TOO ADORABLE TO NOT HAVE AN IN-UNIVERSE EXPLANATION DAMMIT)

Ask for fic, you get fic!

Small watercolor paintings based on screencaps from the Doctor Who episode Smith and Jones (Series 3, episode 1).
I BET YOU THOUGHT I WAS DONE WITH THESE WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS HAHAHA - well to be fair this one took forever simply because of the prompts I’ve been illustrating recently.
"We could die any minute, but all the same, it’s beautiful." "Do you think?"
I really like the Judoons. Particularly how they mix advanced technology (dna scanners) with unsubtlety (big black marker on the hand) all the time.
Hey, look, I drew Martha three times in three screencaps. Did I mention how much I like Martha?
