Fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gifts of seeing the world through their eyes. Fiction is a lie that tells us true things, over and over.

No you don’t understand how frustrated I am that we always depicted the Apostles as old men, especially when it comes to during-Jesus-alive stuff.

They were probably late teens to early 20s, given the time and the description and some Biblical passages.

They were not ancient old men with long ass beards and wrinkles at the Last Supper.

They were young adult rebels with a cause.

And none of them were WHITE.

Nine months, 66k+ notes later and that CE post you tacked the Rose 'ficlet' to is STILL tormenting me and screwing up my activity page on a daily basis. I wish I'd never made the darn thing. It was a gif of Lucan, not of Nine. Of Christopher Eccleston, not the Doctor. And certainly not Rose's whatever. But now every day I have to see Nine/Rose in my face, sometimes dozens of times a day when it catches fire again. Thanks so much. /sarcasm.

YOU’RE SO WELCOME

Thanks so much for coming into a complete stranger’s inbox and being a dick over something that in the scheme of things makes no difference whatsoever! 

You know, if maybe you’d been nice about it, I might have apologized. I don’t even know what you’re referring to, I went through a phase, I wrote a lot of things, if that had genuinely offended a nice person who decided to say something to me politely about it, I would’ve done what I could to make it up to them. 

I’m normally pretty chill on people shipping whatever they want, so long as they don’t tell me what I should ship. But this?  I hope it gets three million more notes and you have to see NinexRose first thing  in the morning and it’s the last before you go to bed at night. I hope the shining golden brilliance of my CANON OTP is burned into your retinas until you learn that it’s not polite to come screaming into someone’s inbox like a fucking four year old instead of sending a calmly-worded message like an adult. 

-Signed, somebody who is deleting all further correspondence from you and is going to forget about you as soon as I hit publish

He finds her trying to bandage a long cut on her side, feebly unscrewing the lid of a hydrogen peroxide bottle and spilling half of it onto the floor, instead of her wound. The towel underneath her is soaked with her blood, and he winces as she sits forward in the rickety office chair to try and clean the whole of it - the soft pink skin is marred all the way around her back. 

"Rose," he says, hands shaking as he crosses the room to her.

"You’re not immortal."

"I don’t have to be," she murmurs, finally letting her eyes fall shut against the crook of his elbow. "They just have to think I am." 

"That’s why I need you,"  she says sleepily. She has a concussion - he’s going to have to set up triage in their living room. "You’ll make them think I’mm bulletproof," she smiles.

It’s on his lips to deny her everything, before that smile - they’ve come too far, and he thinks, maybe, that those street smarts that kept her alive til now won’t let her keep going out at night, facing the monsters spilling out into the streets of Jasper City. 

But as he runs his fingers over her body, finding more cuts and bruises - smaller ones, older ones. He comes, at last to the one on her knee- one that’s covered, but that has been there since she swung on a chain to save him from playground bullies. 

She’s never going to stop. “You can do that,” she breathes. “Right? Make them think I can do anything.” 

"You can already do anything," says John, lifting her in a fireman’s carry and placing her gingerly on the sofa. 

It could work. The science is iffy, but if anyone could pull it off, he could, and he knows her - knows to the core of his soul that she isn’t going to stop. 

"I’m going to do more than that, Rose," He presses a kiss to her forehead. "I’m going to make you into a goddess." 


Anonymous wondered:
hey friend, i know where you're coming from, but bi people really have little to no representation (on top of a whole host of other biphobic behaviors that we have to deal with), so if we want to have a corner of fandom in which we headcanon your fave as bi, can you just be okay with it?

gallifreyslostson:

I LITERALLY HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH SOMEONE HEADCANONING ROSE AS BI.

I have a HUGE problem with people telling me I’m wrong for NOT doing so.

biclaras replied to your post “Rose x Clara”

okay hmm as a bi person i’m trying not to take this personally but bi people need evidence??? um lol

In as much as they need to show attraction to more than one sex at some point ever for me to believe it in a fictional character, yes, absolutely.

Rose has never shown any indication of being bi, so no, I’m not going to ship her with girls.

the problem i have with this is that it feeds into the idea that women are automatically straight, unless they explicitly show attraction to other women

and it’s like

yeah i get that it’s not representation AT ALL unless it’s explicit because otherwise it’s just queerbaiting, and i’m not saying YOU have to ship it, but saying that you need evidence for queer relationships but not straight ones comes from a heteronormative place and that’s not good

Except it’s not, because there IS evidence of straight relationships.  Several examples: Mickey, Adam, Jack, and the Doctor, plus Jimmy Stone somewhere in her past.  If there weren’t ANY relationships, then you could pick and choose anywhere on the sliding scale of sexuality from asexual to pan.  This happens all the time with other characters, like Sherlock and the Doctor.  But with SPECIFICALLY ROSE, she showed a definite attraction to men, and none to women.

So please don’t tell me that what I’m basing my ships for her on isn’t good, because it’s exactly what she exhibits.

As a bisexual person I can confirm that it is 100 percent not offensive if you do not ship Rose with ladies.

I also do not ship Rose with ladies. Unless the Doctor regenerates into a lady.
