Oh no no no, I wasn't trying to make you feel bad or anything. I was just saying, that's why people get so upset about hate. Because it's in the tags and it sucks when you're going through a tag and looking at all the pretty edits and the omg she's so awesome posts and then WHAM. Hate. But yeah, there are companion hate tags, which sucks. The biggest ones are Rose Tyler Hate, River Song Hate, and Amy Pond Hate. But there are others for all the new!Who companions. It's really sad.

I know that you weren’t.  No offense :)  I just posted something on the reason why I just changed the tag.  I want to show respect to those who do like Rose.  They do not need to see the hate.  Some of them who like her and other companions don’t deserve to see that.  Let them find the stuff they like under that tag.  Those haters need to come up with a tag of their own.

Tag Change

Just so some people know, I took off the “Rose Tyler” tag and replaced it with “Rose Tyler Meta”.  I do not want to insult anyone, no matter who they like or don’t like.  You can tell how ignorant I am when I don’t know that people like to bash a character under a tag people use to find stuff that they like about a character.  Thus, me changing it.  I did not know.  I would not want to find hate post under the tags that I use to find stuff that I like.  I want to show respect.

People's problem with Rose hate isn't that it exists. It's that people insist on TAGGING it. The Rose Tyler tag exists for the FANS, not for people to spread their hate. As sad as it is, there are companion hate tags. Use THOSE. Stop polluting the tag where fans go to talk about how much they love her. And that goes for ANY companion. Don't post Donna hate in the Donna Noble tag, don't post Amy hate in the Amy Pond tag. Etc. That is the problem. Not with the fact that the hate exists.

There are companion hate tags?  Seriously?  Never knew that.  That is sad.  Honestly - telling the truth.  Though I should have seen it when I was looking up Martha stuff.  That is wrong.  A tag should be used for fans - I don’t do things like this often - I just tag it like this so I can find it on my own blog if I forgot what other tags I used.  I keep forgetting forgetting that it may show up in a search.  Feel bad now…

My Thing with Rose

I keep seeing a lot of people saying that they are sick of seeing Rose hate.  I do not like Rose; but I do not hate her.  I use to.  However, the more I watched her, the more I examined her, I finally figured out what my problem is with her – I do not like the way RTD wrote her.

Now, I am sure that this is going to cause more hate against me for saying that.  But honestly, the more RTD wrote her, the more selfish and shallow she became.  MOFFAT wrote Rose better and still acknowledged that the girl still had a special place in the Doctor’s hearts during Eleven’s era.  Some may just not like her period.  I love Billie and her performance – I enjoyed her performances in the Sally Lockhart mysteries (which also served as my first introduction to Matt Smith) and in several other shows.  She has this great presence to her.  She did a wonderful job with the material she was given during Doctor Who…but RTD just wrote her in a way that turned the Rose character off to me.

Rose was wonderful in Series 1 except in a few instances – she could have departed Mickey a bit better and at least told her mother that she was going to be gone for a while.  Yes, I know that she was not planning on being gone for a year; but she could have handled the situation a bit better.  And she could have treated Mickey better.  He deserved that much for all the crap he went through.  RTD was an idiot when writing that whole situation.

My problem is with RTD’s writing of Rose.  Thus, that is why I am more partial to reading Rose as written by fanfic writers like bubblygal92 and a_who_in_whoville.  They write her SOOOOO much better than how she was depicted in the show.  I can handle Rose like that.  I just have a hard time handling her during the show.  This is why I tend to write Rose the way I do, though I may be changing that.  I might do a study on this later on – Clara is my favorite companion with Donna a close second; but I might do my own rewrite of Rose in my POV.  You never know.

There will always be Rose hate.  Don’t try to stop it.  Everyone is going to have their own opinions.  Just learn how to handle it better.  I tend ignore unless someone makes a really terrible and offensive comment, which is when I say something. 

You may call me a hypocrite; you may call me stupid.  I can tolerate Rose Tyler yet enjoy Billie Piper at the same time.  It is my right.

The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.

The artwork is too great not to reblog. 

Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.

That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.

One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.

Holy shit

Well shit man

Adele (who I have been a fan of for over a decade now) allowed me to colour her lineart of Eight wearing those new time lord collars, because I instantly fell in love with it the moment I saw it.

I’ve been sitting on this drawing for five months (which was very difficult, because I was very pleased with testing out a new colouring method, and finished the thing in a single day of frenzied painting) to not influence the way she’s painting it. Here’s a progress gif. Hope you like it!

I just read a criticism about Steven Moffat that said in his era, the companions lives revolve around the Doctor and they have nothing else. I’d seriously like to know what show they’re watching because it’s not this one.
