And if no-one were allowed to change their minds, where would we all be?
I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it in time for Christmas. I miss you both so much.
Thing is, I got a little caught up in 18th century Italy. We met Giacomo Casanova. Yes, the one! We helped him escape prison. He didn’t really belong there anyway. Watching him and the Doctor interact was… interesting. Somehow they ended up betting on which of them could get Voltaire to reveal his real name. The Doctor lost. Now he owes him a chicken.
Oh, and you’ll never believe what I saw last week! Vogue is celebrating its 400th anniversary with an exhibit that includes hundreds of photos. And surprise, surprise, there you were! You looked so beautiful. You always do. You still haven’t told me why you quit that job.
How’s dad? Hug him for me, will you? Is he still considering getting a proper medical degree? Not that I don’t believe he could, but I don’t think he fits the job. He’s a nurturer, not a fixer.
I promise I’ll come visit soon. I’m just about to embark on a quick expedition to a library that occupies a whole planet. Can you imagine that? A planet sized library? I can barely picture it. It’s an archeologist’s playground, is what it is. Well, anyway, I swear I’ll come by after this. Just in time for your birthday, I think.
With love, always,
I was all like, oh this is cute, this is fine-…library?
I was like…ow, how cute…wait what!!!?
I am sorry but I just CAN’T

That awkward moment far far away.
Most relevant post on my Tumblr.
I am going to legitimately cry at this
This is one of my favorite things on the internet.
"He shot himself in the face, what more do you want?"
"…fake-suicide, at each other…"
"I was faking too"
It’s just golden.
He’s smiling. He’s proud of himself.
He’s saying “Look at me, that’s right, I’m balancing myself on this little stub of a branch. I am as majestic as a bird on its perch.”

lets talk about how the gender neutral wardrobe is boyish clothes because feminine clothes aren’t considered neutral
and it’s totally connected with the idea that men are the default

So, detractors, lemme see if I’ve got this straight. Patrick Troughton wanted this. Peter Davison wants this. Colin Baker wants this. Carole Ann Ford wants this. Louise Jameson wants this. Freema Agyeman wants this. Matt Smith wants this. Karen Gillan wants this. And now we have word that Sydney Newman, attributed with giving the show its lead’s name and basic mode of transport—the same man, I remind you, who hired a female showrunner in nineteen sixty-fucking-three—wanted this.
And somehow demanding a female Doctor is appropriation.
Here’s the original source for that fun fact. What I find most interesting is not just that Sydney Newman wanted the Doctor to be a woman, but that he wasn’t interested in making the female Doctor a gimmick. His letter says:
At a later stage Doctor Who should be metamorphosed into a woman. This requires some considerable thought – mainly because I want to avoid a flashy, Hollywood Wonder Women because this kind of heroine with no flaws is a bore. Given more time than I have now, I can create such a character.
Newman wanted a strong female character in every sense. He wanted her to be interesting, he wanted her to be complex, and he wanted her to be flawed.
So for all of you naysayers who think that a female Doctor would never be more than a ratings gimmick:
So I was watching Supernatural and my dad walks in and all casual says ” Is this the show that your second cousin is in” and I’m just kinda like “ha ha dad very funny” but then he says “No seriously, his name is… Marvin? Mica? I don’t know, something weird like that.” and he just walks away
That’s the story of how I found out that I’m related to Misha Collins and died
