But look what you did!
# it hurts me # because usually by this point in a companions arc # aka at the end of their season # they believe in themselves # theyve traveled with the doctor and theyve done and seen such amazing things # and in doing so they realize their own potential # their own skills # but donna # despite everything shes done # saved a family in pompeii # freed the ood # solved murders with agatha goddamn christie # saved the doctor from himself #despite ALL OF THAT # she still thinks shes nothing special # because her entire life thats what shes been told # she has never been able to see just what a remarkable person she truly is # and the doctor is so surprised here # because he can see it # clear as day # hes seen it for a long time # and what kills me about donnas ending # isnt just that she loses her memories # she loses him too # her best friend in the universe # the one who listened #even when she wasnt shouting (via yaccbs)

courage to continue to watch the show

I will fear no canon. For Thou art with me. Thy fanfic and thy meta, they comfort me
“In the past, comics companies have tended to suggest diversity should ‘happen naturally,’ as if when you leave a comic book open overnight gay men might grow in the pages like mustard and cress, so it’s great that Marvel are now championing it, doing it deliberately. Because that’s the only way it can be done. Jeanine’s [Schaefer, his editor on Wolverine] a force for change. And there are a number of prominent female editors now who are altering the face of pro comics culture pretty swiftly.
Online comics fandom, meanwhile, if you judge solely by the comics message boards, remains conservative and behind the times. The action is to be found on Tumblr, where the Carol Corps lives.”"
– writer Paul Cornell, who adheres to a strict “panel parity” rule at conventions (he won’t appear on all-male panels), talking to the New Statesman about embracing political issues in mainstream comic books
Thank you Kelly Sue for the heads up. Damn this makes me so happy, to see that this craving for change and diversity is affecting and influencing people outside of our little bubble :) (source)
Ship like this, be with you ‘til the day you die.
Another untagged bit o’ fun for followers, a crop from this painting. I really DO take the time to read tags on reblogs, and I appreciate each and every one: thank you. :)
Is that a scruffy-as-fuck beard, or what? I paint these at about 3000x4000 pixels and I know that anything tiny is gonna disappear in the small version that gets posted, so I tend to overemphasize some details. This is, as I said, 95% PaintTool SAI - the snow and foggy breath effects are Photoshop, everything else is SAI.
Yes. The scruff. Beautifully done.
