You’re my best friend, Iris.
Okay so I made these without the cinnamon and nutmeg and lemme just tell you:
THESE MUFFINS TASTE EXACTLY LIKE DOUGHNUTS.
I DUNNO WHAT KIND OF VOODOO I PULLED IN THE KITCHEN BUT SLAP MY NIPPLES AND CALL ME BETSY BECAUSE THEY TASTE LIKE DOUGHNUTS HALLELUJAH IN THE HIGHEST.
i made these today! they’re DELIGHTFUL! (i made them with the cinnamon and nutmeg, but now i’m planning on trying them without and maybe filling the middle with some kind of jelly???? we shall see.)
Cause this is just pretty. Oliver and Felicity are just amazing.
I want this on a shirt, painted on my walls, and taped to the roof.
"We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending. But the story never ends."
ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT
I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels. The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were. If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead. But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way. Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.” Am I gonna get called a racist? Probably. Am I a racist? No. Fuck you. The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who. It was THEIR PROJECT. IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY. IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE. The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem. People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media. It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that. Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW. Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own.
How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.
EVERYONE POINT AT ayn-randroid AND LAUGH. HAHAHAHA WHAT A DUMBASS HAHAHA
And you do realize that the creator of Doctor Who wanted a female Doctor?
When the original series was struggling with ratings in the 1980s, the show’s creator, Sydney Newman, wrote a letter to BBC One Controller Michael Grade, admonishing the state of the show. He called for a temporary return of Patrick Troughton, who played the Second Doctor, before metamorphosing The Doctor into a female incarnation – a Time Lady.
So if The Doctor has the ability to regenerate into a woman, The Doctor could also regenerate into a person of colour as well. It would have been much more imaginative to have this iconic character transcend race and gender, especially since The Doctor is meant to transcend time itself.
There’s no reason Doctor Who can’t be diverse yet still authentically English, especially if it wants to last another fifty years.
Can we talk about how ANGRY a FANCAST that someone only made for fun this jackass got?
Yes, you are being racist. Reexamine yourself.
also, doctor who wasn’t even the creation of a bunch of white men: it was mostly the creation of a woman and a south asian director
so, you know, get your fucking facts right before you get your bigotry all over my show, you goddamn casual
I’ve reblogged this so many times, it is always relevant.
