“I was creating what I, as a fannibal, wanted to see. So it was great to see so many people feeling the way I do and picking up on the details that resonated with me. It’s a very communal experience; I feel like we’re peers and there is a mutual respect and that everybody is coming from a place of admiration for the source material, myself included. It’s been a fun, sharing experience with the audience.” [x]
sometimes I see this and I get a little sad
because I wonder what happened to the girl who tried to comfort a monster, the one who couldn’t even watch when her father was run over on the street, the one who collapsed into her mum’s arms after losing her best friend, the girl who demanded a serving maid be kept safe because she mattered just as much as Charles Dickens
I don’t mean to say I don’t like the woman she became, or that she isn’t compassionate or kind or caring, and I definitely am not saying that the nineteen/twenty year old Rose wasn’t brave or capable or daring
but I look at those gifs and I think of all the worlds she must have seen, all the things she must have been pushed through and all the ways her heart must have broken because it must have been momentous for Rose Tyler to not even look behind her at those people running, to not even twitch at the explosion blooming behind her, for her face to look so goddamn cold and her whole body so used to the weight of a gun
she must be happy with who she is, as well she should, but I wonder if she sometimes looks up at the stars and misses the girl she used to be, the one who watched Cassandra die- the megalomaniac vapid villain who tried to kill her- and turned to the Doctor and asked him to save her

Cosmo, you sexist piece of shit.
Oh boo. There’s Wanda, his wife, grinning evilly in the background as he’s saying it.
Besides, context is important. Remember what this episode was? "Queen for a Day." The one with Trixie Tang’s birthday?
The entire point of Wanda hitting Timmy with this wish was to teach a moral to him. Timmy was hitting a mental roadblock trying to come up with a birthday present for Trixie, not having a clue what “a girl” would want for her birthday. Cue the wish forcing him into a female body and… Still pretty much liking the exact same stuff. And as he later found out, Trixie liked the same things he did, even if gender norms didn’t fit for it all.
In the end, Timmy ends up giving Trixie the present she wanted in a comic book store, but fakes getting upset over it when he gives it to her because her friends thought it was only for boys. But, she WAS grateful.
And this moment? This right here? Our male protagonist, Timmy, is now getting playfully mocked by Cosmo for suddenly being a girl. That’s going to teach boys, through the eyes of Timmy, how stupid it is to be demeaning to females for being female.
This episode was basically a giant slap in the face to the idea of gender norms. And you’re still calling Cosmo sexist for reinforcing the moral, which is how stupid even casual sexism is?
Childhood is firmly not ruined, thank you.
"According to reports, the sadly disfigured 26-year-old’s quality of life has been greatly diminished due to such a condition. Sources said the abnormal, visibly blemished creature has been repeatedly passed over for employment opportunities, frequently gawked at and harassed on the street by total strangers, and has faced near constant discrimination for over two decades, all due to the horrific and debilitating birth defect."
omfg this is the best piece of satire i have read in eons.
