Little Lost Fangirl, All Grown Up

I'm a 30+ young lady, holding a professional office job and living an everyday life. I'm a teenage fangirl, still geeking out over her subjects.

Tinkering the TARDIS with a normal screwdriver because your “sonic” one is too much technology sometimes…

The 12th Doctor is systematically shedding the things he’s used as security blankets throughout his previous incarnations - He’s going back to his ‘roots’ and I think this is something we shouldn’t ignore.  The thought I keep coming to is that he’s Weening himself off of the things he’s relied on for so long. 

Rather than using the Tardis computers to solve problems, he writes them down on chalkboards. He’s getting more intimate with his thought processes. I don’t know about you, but when I bend myself over a piece of paper and write things out, I’m in a headspace where the gears are -really- turning. 

Episode 3, he’s got to think his way out of a situation without the aid of his Sonic Screwdriver and in Episode 4, we’re seeing him separating himself from his dependence on it to do -everything- for him. And we see him pushing Clara into the Tardis to face things by himself. He’s weening himself off her, too. 

This Doctor is a lot more actively introspective. I think we’re going to see a lot more of him exploring what makes him Tick and I think we’re going to see more of his past as he tries to decide if he really WANTS to find Gallifrey again, and maybe ‘go home’. 

what a great way of thinking… i couldnt agree more…

A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.
The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”
You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.
(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)

Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

GIRL POWER

The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.

Tae Kwon Do Champion. You fucked up, bro.
