"The future I wanted is gone. The future I was promised. Everything I expected. The way everything was supposed to turn out. Happiness and peace and love and comfort. When did the future switch from being a promise to a threat?"

i feel like 11 is moffat’s equivalent to that super special snowflake teenager character.it’s like watching a 12 year old feeling superior just bc they “aren’t like other people” and it’s so cringey i feel like digging up a whole in the ground and hiding there.
i mean,am i making…

the concept of productivity vs nonproductivity is a capitalist, ableist concept that attempts to define peoples self-worth by their capacity to put themselves under stress or in pain

why can’t we just do what is best for our health

ok listen it’s really nifty that “say your name and pronouns” is getting to be a thing in queer spaces but. lets talk about the etiquette for that if u are cis because i think maybe we should lay it bare, just so we’re all on the same page.

inappropriate things to say when asked for your pronouns

  • "i don’t care about pronouns/you can call me whatever"*
  • "call me whatever you think i am"
  • [pronoun joke]
  • "i’m a guy/lady"
  • [anything about being cis]

appropriate things to say when asked for your pronouns

  • your goddamn pronouns

*trans+ folks with no pronoun preference exist and u are beautiful twinkling diamonds shine on, friend, shine on

also: please don’t say “masculine pronouns” or “feminine pronouns”, just say the pronouns!

is there a word for “i’m okay but it’s a fragile kind of okay so be gentle with me”?

Why hasn’t A done anything about the whole Ezra situation? Ezra has cameras everywhere! He’s watching the liars every move. It would be so easy for A to be caught! Why is A giving ezra free reign? Also assuming A had something to do with Ali’s disappearance, It would give A more reason to stop Ezra because finding out who the suspect is, Is the end to Ezra’s Novel! It’s a key element to the story.

We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving … We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins … We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive are our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers … We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything.”

Man, you wasted an amazing opportunity with River Song. The first time in the last 8 years of Doctor Who there’s a [half] Time Lord in the show that doesn’t want to kill The Doctor [most of the time] and we didn’t get to see anything explicitly time lordy… Yes she could fly the TARDIS (which was effing awesome!) but… what else? I wanted to see some Time Lord history and mythology explored here! I wanted conversations between The Doctor and River Song about the Time War, about the people who she is strongly connected to through race.

Have The Doctor teach her about the Time Lords and their culture, help her understand her origins and her abilities AS a Time Lord. Time Lords have psychic abilities amongst many other things, where was any of that? It must have been so confusing for River Song growing up and not knowing a thing about why she can regenerate or how to even control her abilities.. or why she was naturally gifted in many ways. I would have loved to have seen them bond in situations that aren’t life-threatening. Yes it was implied that off screen this did occur.. but couldn’t we have understood The Doctor’s relationship with her a little better. Did he really love her? Did he only marry her because she was part Time Lord and it just kinda made sense to (+ she had the hots for him and why not I guess)? What bonds did they share as mutual Time Lords, that The Doctor could not explain or express to human beings? I wanted to see all of this and more…. Why Moffat, why?

For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”…The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation
