I just saw another Steven Moffat hate post, and while I understand and commiserate with the allegations of confusing and illogical plots, I’m so sick of hearing people cry and moan because they think he’s sexist. Now listen, I’m not going to tell you what perfect and awesome and powerful and clever characters Amy and River and everyone are, because that’s really not all I look for in a great character anyway… but what everyone has failed to notice is that HIS GUY CHARACTERS ARE ALL THE SAME TOO.

Honestly, other than the Doctor, which history has written for him, can you even name a Moffat character that has more than one, or maybe two, facets? Additionally, the secondary male characters he writes all tend to be slightly awkward, loyal, tag-alongs. Moffat’s whole MO is simple, staightforward, single-faceted characters (and unless they were first written by somebody else, he only has like, two of them. Sometimes he swaps them out - i.e., Molly Hooper is his usual MO for guy characters and Jack Harkness is his usual MO for girls). Does it appeal to me? Not really. But is it sexist? NO! It’s just a universally weak aspect of his writing. But nobody sees how shitty his guy characters are because you’re too busy eagle-eyeing just the ladies. Geeeeeeeeeeeeees.

Avatar: The Last Airbender — Last Agni Kai/The Phoenix King

the single most heartbreaking piece of music to ever be music ever ever ever ever ever ever

I remember when this came on and I was expecting some huge battle music, but then the strings came in and the drums did too, and I realised that ending battle was this sad, terrible thing that wasn’t supposed to be happening, and I just kinda sank into my couch at that point…

Musing on the idea of setting someone on fire doesn’t mean you REALLY want to set them on fire, it’s just the thought of it that makes you happy. But only for a second, then you feel bad, but that second could be a lot of fun!

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

12, 18, 19


12. Something casual with a lot of talking. I like the idea of going to a book store, especially one with a coffee shop. Walking or hiking are also nice. I’m not really a fan of dinner dates unless its like an after thought. “Oh man, bowling was fun, are you feeling a little peckish?”

18. I don’t know. I used to say failure, but not anymore (thanks to a sort of unintended exposure therapy, haha). I suppose I will say that earwigs are by far my least favorite bug, and I am more conscientious of my teeth getting knocked out than any other potential injury.

19. Rose! I like my middle name, I would consider using it for a daughter’s middle name as well some day. (And for the Doctor Who fans out there - yes, my middle name is Rose’s first name, AND my first name is Amy’s middle name :P)
