I am a huge geek. My favorite fandoms are (In no particular order) Doctor Who, everything Joss Whedon, Divergent, (or most dystopian future stories) Dark Angel, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, How I Met Your Mother, I enjoy playing various Xbox games, my favorite probably being the Spiderman ones, but I enjoy many different types.

 

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x

"I mean really, Ms. Delphox is just Missy, who is just Madame Kovarian, all of whom are really just Sherlock's Irene Adler.
And people say Steven Moffat can’t write women.”

You know when a fast angry song comes on that you know every word to and you’re in just the right mood that your eyes light up with the fire and angst of a thousand punk rockers and you just feel so alive

I wish they’d ditch the idea that Doctor Who is some kind of a gritty, pretentious thriller about a dark antihero and his dark darkness of dark. DW is about a space dork with a bleeding heart and a streak of melancholy and darkness in his soul, who travels through time and space in a state of constant wonder and awe over ALL THE STUFF and makes sacrifices and suffers and sometimes gets angry and sad, and tries to make friends with those who impress and move him and takes them to show them what he’s been dorking over and maybe save a few worlds together.

Oh, and he flies around in a telephone box.

How Doctor Who lost the Time War

Since the last Doctor Who episode had reminded me painfully about the 50th, I’ve been thinking about the Time War and the time lock.

This is how I understood the Time War before the 50th:

You’ll find out a little bit more, but I only want you to find out bits that sound exciting. I mean, we’re never going to flashback to the Time War on television. It could never live up to what you’ve imagined. It’s so much more alive by being imprecise. I don’t know, someone might make a film one day… but actually, if you’re doing a film, you’d have a new Time War. You’ve just got to keep moving forwards. It’s a nice mythology. It’s got that Harry Potter-ness about it. What happened to Lily and James Potter? I hope to God she doesn’t bring them back to life in the last book! I don’t think she will—she loves a good death, and you’ve got to make it permanent—cos it would just betray everything.

Russell T. Davies on whether we’d ever find out exactly what happened in the Time War | DWM Issue 374 (via rointheta)

It’s hard to imagine timing for a female-led movie that would be more appropriate than now, when a spec script has already been penned by the writer of a wildly successful recent movie (Guardians, might I add, was the first Marvel Film ever to have a 40% female audience). But to hear Feige tell it, producing Black Widow involves consulting the stars, measuring one’s body temperature, and waiting for a flock of doves to roost on Marvel’s lawn and pronounce the world “ready.” But y’all don’t need a Farmers Almanac: the right time for a female-led movie was yesterday, regardless of Marvel’s plans for the “right story.” If women had the representation we deserve in movies overall, Feige’s call for patience would have been identified as procrastination long ago–and if Marvel’s plate isn’t big enough to handle that, then something is fundamentally broken.
