Step 327: Sometimes, text before you call

This is a thoughtful thing to do for people who might be expecting bad or serious news. My family got in the habit when Grannybarb was really sick, and every time my phone rang I was terrified that it was a Serious Call.

So when we just wanted to chat, my mom and sisters and would text the other person ahead of time, so we knew that it wasn’t serious and we didn’t have to drop everything to take it/steel ourselves emotionally/get to a place where we could flip out if need be.

It’s me pretending to be a video game character what is wrong with you it’s pretty straight-forward

Wow this is really accurate right down to the breathing.

I’ve never hit reblog so fast in my life.

I’m laughing out loud. Genuinely. Not lol. Actually laughing. Not “haha yes funny *stone face*”, I actually went HAHAHA in my throat with a wide open mouth and scrunchy eyes. Amazing. Congratulations on your acting, sir.

What if women had minstrel cycles instead of menstrual cycles? You’d just have a guy with a lute follow you around for a week every month and play you songs constantly?

#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)

The Doctor wouldn’t.  He’d find another way.

and the thing is Moffat is 100% right because regardless of if he called himself “The Doctor” during the Time War he was still the Doctor deep deep down and in the end he saves lives, and he saved his people

"I lack the creativity to imagine characters being forced to make difficult choices, especially since my understanding of said characters is surface-deep at best. Sometimes I think about writing real emotional consequences to things, but then I remember how much easier it would be to avoid consequences whatsoever with some bizarre winding hole-filled plot. I am a professional writer who overcomes difficulty writing a scene by shoving in a contrived loophole so I don’t have to write it. Please punch me in the face."

As RTD wrote it, he didn’t save his people, he saved the rest of the universe from his people. by destroying them. A much more difficult and courageous thing to do.

Like, did he not watch the Tennant finale, The End of Time??? Where he reveals that the Time Lords had turned bad,

"Had turned bad"? Dude, the Doctor’s been railing against the Time Lords since at least the Sixth Doctor. During "Trial of a Time Lord", we find out they had destroyed nearly all life on Earth to protect their secrets. Hell, that’s WHY the Doctor was on trial; they knew he’d be pissed and were trying to get him out of the way.

Let’s be clear people: The Time Lords are NOT good guys. At ALL. And they haven’t been for a very long time. Frankly, the revelations in “The End of Time” are… not really that surprising when you look at the series over all, and some of the shit the Time Lords have pulled in the past.

"In all my travelling throughout the universe, I have battled against evil, against power-mad conspirators. I should have stayed here. The oldest civilisation: decadent, degenerate, and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans, Cybermen - they’re still in the nursery compared to us. Ten million years of absolute power. That’s what it takes to be really corrupt.”

-The Doctor (The Ultimate Foe, 1986)
