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’

MOAR wee!Legolas and ada!Thranduil… I just adore these two.
This clearly takes place a few hours before the “Nap” doodle of Day 38. I rather imagine Legolas on his ada’s shoulders using him much like a horse…. “over there! ooh, what’s that?! look!” in that over-eager way that little kids have, while Thranduil is patiently indulgent.
Well, that’s my personal headcanon, anyway.
Based on that icon we’ve all undoubtedly seen on numerous myspace and deviantART profile pages.

Don’t wish death on your enemies. Wish geese on them. Wish thousands of geese into their life. Geese in their yard. Geese in their car. Geese in their workplace. Geese in their bed. Tiny geese in their hair. Geese in their food. JPEGs of angry geese overtaking their computer. Turn their whole family into geese. Awful hissy mean geese everywhere. A fate worse than death.
My Mom said the cutest thing today. She said all of us on here are like “cyber hippies”. All about preaching peace, love, freedom, and human equality. Letting our hair grow. And not wanting to do much work. I dont know about you but that sounds pretty spot on.
Yes, exactly. CYBER HIPPIES
