goodbye i’m gone bye

#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:






Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling.  Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*.  She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.


#excellent tags are excellent#jfc moffat#twelfth doctor#clara oswald#the oncoming patriarchy#in contrast with#ninth doctor#rose tyler#bamf#i know that’s a lot of pictures#but i kept looking for counterexamples#and there weren’t any#someone who’s got more martha and donna promo pictures handy#should do some examples of their presentation

/w martha



/w donna




and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:

The bathroom door at The Way Station, a bar in Brooklyn.
The interior has little LED lights in the ceiling like stars and a bunch of Doctor Who stuff painted on the walls. Said bar also has nerd karaoke on Sunday nights and a DW-themed drink menu. (I had a Ten’s sonic screwdriver, which was very good.)

isilienelenihin said: Laura everyone who says there was no sexual element between the Doctor and Rose must have been watching some strange, heavily edited version because oh my god eye sex all the time. ALL THE TIME. And probably actual sex too. Like on the console and shit.

also this happened on a regular basis:

(except with 100% more doctor-standing-behind-her ‘helping’)

but no

image

what do you mean

image

of course there was no

image

indication that the doctor and rose

image

ever thought of each other 

image

like that


image

and of course he isn’t horrified when he’s just about to stick his tongue down rose’s throat and realises jackie’s still in the room

image

i just don’t see why anyone would think this fellow has sex on his mind i mean really -

#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wear a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor the the Time War but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to write his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

A new poster of the tenth doctor’s sonic screwdriver and Rose. Created for Whovians everywhere, enjoy. Special thanks to mannequinjack. :)
