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

Astronaut: We need to fund 1.4 billion dollars.
NASA: FOR WHAT?!
Astronaut: We want to put kitties in space and have them float around in zero gravity.
NASA: Here is all the money. God bless.
Characterization done right.
Steve Rogers in a single gif.
We joke about Steve’s patriotism as his strong suit, but his actual strength was his sense of moral right. His whole philosophy is summed up in the line “I don’t like bullies” in the first movie. Steve loves his country. He loves it enough to be at the front of the line trying to fix what he sees as moral wrong in it.
TEEN WOLF “the rubble or our sins” (fanvid)
a video focusing on the core five: Scott, Stiles, Allison, Lydia & Derek.
This video is seriously amazing. Like i have to come out of the tags to tell you how amazing it is so that you don’t just scroll past it and not watch it. Because it captures the last three seasons of teen wolf perfectly, focusing on the core characters, and makes you feel a billion things. So watch and reblog this (feel free to delete my review when you do). You won’t regret it.
I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.
AND SHE GAVE HIM A PIECE OF THE LASSO OF TRUTH I CAN’T.
This is so important.
Wonder Woman is my favorite.
And to all my mutant brothers and sisters out there, I say this: no more hiding. No more suffering. You have lived in the shadows in shame and fear for too long. Come out. Join me. Fight together in a brotherhood of our kind.
