For the love of Fiction

On a more formal note I suppose I can mention that I'm a post-secondary student working on a Psychology Honours degree and when I'm not doing that I'm usually catching up on the million books I've been meaning to read. :P

Enjoy! :D

I love every aspect of this.

NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.

I HAD TO MAKE A GIF BECAUSE I COULDN’T FIND ONEAM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SAW THISI JUST

You now realize that the reason that the angels didn’t get her here is because THE CAMERA COUNTED AS SOMEONE WATCHING THEM.

And the only time the angels moved was when sally blocked them from the view of the camera

This episode breaks the fourth wall in more ways than one.  This shows that even the audience can be part of a Doctor Who episode.  Whovians, you’ve always wanted to be in an episode.  ”Blink” was the first.  You also hear the Doctor talking to you about the statues.  The “Don’t Blink” speech we know by heart.  And…what about the angel in the window?  If Sally wasn’t looking at that one, then why didn’t it move?
Because we were watching it.




Reason number 1234567 why this episode was better than any other weeping angel episode

The director of that episode was Hettie MacDonald, massively talented woman and winner of multiple awards.  Don’t lay “Blink”s amazingness on Moffat because most of it goes to her, especially the stuff at the meta-textual level you’re talking about here.

My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.

Dude I want this sitcom
