Mad Woman In A Box

Underpaid, overworked mother of two. Proudly raising the next generation of Doctor Who fan girls. My name's Claire, but I go by yumimum in fandom circles. OTP's - Doctor/Rose (Any, all, and hopefully together) Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Peter Carlisle/Natalie Holden, Spike/Buffy, and Draco/Hermione. Always brings a banana to a party.

aka “Elitism is my middle name”

Oh fuck you, Steven.
Right, I was never a massive fan of the Doctor-Rose romance, but it did make a sort of sense. At his hearts, the Doctor fights for the underdogs, the people oppressed by the establishment. Even when he works with members of the powerful elite, he does so with a sneer and a critical whit. When he is with actual normal people he is at his happiest and most relaxed. That’s why he and Rose worked as an idea.
The fact that Moffat has the Doctor chumming up with Winston Churchill and this statement above shows that he fundamentally interprets the Doctor as a power fantasy, rather than as a liberator or friend. That’s the major difference between Moffat Who and Davis Who.

Not to mention Richard Nixon …

I also think that Reinette’s lines “One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel” and “The Doctor is worth the monsters” get it fundamentally wrong. The companions don’t simply tolerate the unpleasantness they encounter because that’s the price for the privilege of basking in the Doctor’s dudely awesomeness.   They travel with him out of curiosity and a sense of adventure, and a side effect of the travels is discovering their own power and awesomeness. Like Rose says,  “It was a better life. And I don’t mean all the travelling and seeing aliens and spaceships and things. That don’t matter. The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know he showed you too. That you don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say no. You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away …”

It’s not on here for another two hours. I’m just hoping I can stay awake. I spent the day in the 18th century.

Oh really? I spent the afternoon with my sister-in-law and waaaay to much vodka ;p


"Sexy Times" - Digital Oil Painting

Happy birthday to the-untempered-prism! She expressed an interest in Ten/Rose sexy times (though this could also be Tentoo, yay for ambiguity!), so I maniped then painted this for her. Happy birthday to one of my all time favorite artists, I hope your day is special and full of happiness and delicious cake!

This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.

Well damn.

Well damn.

Well shit. That awkward moment when you realise you’re in too much of a good mood to watch the latest episode of Doctor Who just yet.
