also someone talk to me because i am receptioning for ~6hrs and the other two receptionists are good friends so keep talking just the two of them without me (unintentional/not malicious, after all i am only an intern and they’re full-time etc) but i get lonely so yeah come talk to me (tumblr or gchat or fb, not text) or something pls? :D
a random note i feel i should mention, #dwanalysis is the tag that i use for posts that [negatively] criticize Doctor Who, as opposed to gifsets and fanart and stuff. a friend asked to not see those types of posts a while ago, and i try my best to remember that tag. so if you want to see just stuff from the show as opposed to negative commentary, add #dwanalysis to your tumblr saviour :)
moffat’s companions’ lives are all so strangely ungrounded in reality and i think it’s a good example of his very weak writing. in day of the doctor we see clara teaching - no explanation, no mention of it in the episode, and no build up to it. although obviously this was a (really lovely actually) nod to canon, it’s not the first time this has happened; amy just “became” a model in one episode and was never shown like this again (after her first job was as a kissogram). it’s impossible to imagine this happening with any of russell t davies’ companions, who all had lives incredibly minutely planned out; rose and mickey found their path to success obstructed by class boundaries and working manually, donna worked a succesion of uninspiring office jobs and even well off martha was shown physically working very hard to achieve her medical degree.
this ability to skip through professions as well as change locations and dump family just grounds the idea that moffat’s companions are strange, non-human, undeveloped creatures. their lives, trials and tribulations don’t matter outside of the doctor, and it’s like they’re a succession of barbie dolls; “i can be a model! i can be a teacher! i can be an archaeologist!” with an awful lot of pluck, a cheeky grin, and no substance whatsoever

Hi um what's that add-on for browsers that changes words into other words? And is it possible to do on one letter? See i tried to blacklist N (the pokemon character) and since lots of thing have the letter n it kinda failed miserably so i was wondered if there was a way to change just the letter _N_ and nothing else?
ponify is the add on
If it’s a standalone letter - we’re talking about N here - then yes. Presuming you want all the “n”s that are part of a word to stay the same.
with Tumblr Saviour all you gotta do is blacklist ” N ” with spaces around it. won’t catch all instances but it should do pretty good and it doesn’t block like every instance of “n” ever
alternatively, in tumblr saviour, if you go into the “settings” tab, there’s an option to “match whole words only,” which will only block when it’s n stand-alone, as opposed to in a word (that’s how i block “spider” but not “spiderman” :P)
I will post things on Christmas Day tagged “xmas queue”, if you want to block that as well.
i should probably include “xmas” either way haha, but thanks for telling me! :)
tumblr saviouring “christmas” was one of the best decisions i’ve ever made on this website

#YES #THIS IS SO IMPORTANT #THE DOCTOR NEEDS TO REMEMBER THIS #ESPECIALLY WHEN HE GETS A BIG HEAD ABOUT HOW GREAT HE IS #AND AGAIN #IT WAS RORY WHO SAID IT #RORY IS ALWAYS FINDING WAYS TO HUMBLE THE DOCTOR AND THE DOCTOR KNOWS IT #AND THAT’S WHY HE LOVES RORY #NOT MANY PEOPLE MAKE HIM FEEL HUMBLE #AND IT’S JUST REALLY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER LINES LIKE THIS
