TMW you understand that after all this time, it was just your imagination that was the hang up.
TMW you find out that the 13th Doctor for Doctor Who is a lady, and there are Doctor Who fans who are throwing all the shits about it. TMW you think they're not true Doctor Who fans, as the true ones wouldn't care what gender the Doctor is.
We are disapoint
I think her gender was changed precisely because gender matters. This is about gender representation, right? So of course there are fans who care because to them Dr. Who has been established as male. Add to that the recent trend of male superheroes receiving a gender flip and there you go, many in the fandom are going to be triggered.
(Disclaimer: I'm not a Dr. Who fan myself and actually don't care if s/he's man woman gay trans black, nor do I think it's wrong to switch things up. I actually think it's fun).
They're doing the same thing to James Bond. Not a big deal.
And the remake of Man from UNCLE.
TMW this guy decided he wanted to be a speedboat.
That moment when you get asked to send a second application for a job you applied for nearly two months ago.
That moment when you cock that application up, but in the process you find several other vacancies doing the same job, apply for all of those as well - and then two days later one of those other jobs contact you to arrange an interview.
When is there going to be a male Wonder Woman? Or, for that matter, a male Queen of England?
That moment when a huge storm hits out of nowhere and your silly little 60lb dog refuses to come in and you have to go out in the downpour, pick her soaking wet butt up and carry her in the house
I have a sense of when it is about to rain, and go a retrieve my 20lb Shih-Tzu before
he turns into a mud puppy.
Yeah, I was lost in writing land so I didnt notice. Thankfully my other 2 dogs (who each outweigh me) have sense enough to listen to reason
That... must have been an adventure. Mine make a beeline to the door on the first raindrop.
You could say that. She was severely abused for most of her life, and even though I've had her for 3 years, she still panics and just lays down when there's any loud noise or anything scary. She becomes essentially paralyzed and there was too much thunder for her to come out of it
Damn. Sorry to hear about that.
It's okay. She's so much better now. She was so panicked when I took her she would twitch constantly, even in her sleep, and she would freak out if you took her in a house. Now she loves sleeping on her bed (or the couch), knows what toys are, and never twitches anymore. The loud noise thing is all that's left. She's doing well.
TMW you're torn between the fact that a character in a book you're reading is still alive clearly for plot reasons, but in real life you would have killed his ass six chapters ago.
Its one of those catch 22's.
We want to resolve the conflict, but without conflict there's no story.
I feel ya. Plot demands are the worst, and maybe a little more
when they are characters you wish would die.
TMW you are so sick of removing unneeded dialogue tags and commas from your MS because you wrote it before such shitty things about your writing were pointed out to you by a professional editor.
TMW you read this right after watching the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Johnny Depp has clearly lost interest.
TMW you remember just how valuable critiquing can be for the writer AND the reviewer.
TMW you wake up thinking you've slept in only to look at the clock and find it is 6am.
TMW a friend says if they were ever on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire you'd be their phone-a-friend and you're irrationally sad about all the potential money he'd lose.
Separate names with a comma.
