I almost put “whence” in my lab report.
"And then the product was returned to the fiery flask from whence it came."
I have more than once instructed my burning bacteria to return to whence they came!
Getting into the holiday spirit with some Justice League.
Edgar is watching Star Wars for the first time. Unlike Frankie he’s not a interested. Maybe it just takes a few more watches.
OH HOLY FUCK why is deadpool so fucking hard to draw. Its the lack of a nose.
Part of the problem is that Moffat’s a big fan of the Giant Reset Button — so much so that he literally wrote in a Giant Reset Button into the episode Journey to the Center of the TARDIS. One step above the “It was all a dream” plot, the Giant Reset Button absolves the characters and the writers of any repercussions and they can carry on as they were, even though we, the audience, saw a “major event” that is evidently no longer relevant. You can have your fun and adventure, but you need not learn or grow or change from it.
When you have no death, when nothing truly has weight or scale, when decisions don’t stick and nobody feels the consequences… it’s hard to care about anything. The stakes on the show feel so low at this point that a once addictive program is unengaging, dull and hollow. Even the 50th special had no real gravitas because we were basically watching a plot be un-done, rather than made. We were watching a character be un-banished, rather than created. For a celebration of 50 years of a television show, it felt awfully like a celebration of a writer who’s only been running it for 4 years.
What Steven Moffat doesn’t understand about grief, and why it’s killing Doctor Who (via getonthefuckingbikeshinji)
Oh gawd! The truth. I’m not a Moffat fan.
Is it acceptable to write for my Error Analysis section: “We totally didn’t fuck up this time, we did everything right!”
