~I saved the planet before it was cool~
I'd like to thank the academy...
Hipster 10 was inspired by this post on livejournal (and comments) and the hipster Little Mermaid tumblr, and voilà!
...then I discovered there was already one for Eleven. UMM, OOPS. So this one is for all Doctors (and Masters, and Companions, etc.) As since this was the first tumblr I ever made, it shows up as the one I reblog/like/follow with. However my (real) more personal tumblr, for which I do other fandom-related things, is linked below.* So odds are, I'll talk to you under fyeahhipsterdoctor, but reblog you under sombrero unless I find it relevant to here.
Same person, really. Though I recently started doing "off-topic Tuesdays" where I post random non-Whoniverse or hipster-related stuff here without feeling guilty.
Sometimes I get political on here. I try not to let it happen too often, (though be warned, that as a New Yorker affected by it, I am almost guaranteed to post remembrance posts on 9/11) and when I do I try to post something Doctor Who related soon after. If it bothers you let me know, and to those of you with tumblr savior blacklist "not doctor who related at all" or "sombrero does other stuff".
in which the Doctor is very heterosexual
This is one of the reasons why I love Doctor Who, they really just do not give a shit about sexuality. In series 1 episode 2 a fucking tree woman fancied the Doctor. They’ve had lesbians, lesbian lizard women, gays, interspecies relationships, Jack, a transgender horse and so much more. If there were such a thing as a LGBT safe show it’s Doctor Who.
And I think the best part of it is that they don’t go overboard trying to emphasize it. A lot of shows that have lesbian, gay, bi, trans, or any other orientated couple/character kind of throw it in your face like lOoK WOw GaY iS OkaY, LOoK hoW LGBT-FRieNdLY wE ArE, but with Doctor Who they just have some random people doing what they have to do and being bad ass and then somewhere along the way you find out their sexual preferences but they don’t make a big deal out of it.
My favourite thing in all of Doctor Who is Sky from Midnight referring to her ex as “she”, and the reaction. There was no reaction. The Doctor didn’t look shocked, the music didn’t change, the atmosphere didn’t change, her ex is not a plot point. She just happened to be gay. Like in real life. I love that.
Doctor Who Series 5 Rewatch: ‘The Eleventh Hour’
This is the scene in which Eleven became my Doctor.
Okay, for some reason, ever since the new tumblr update finally hit, I haven’t been able to reblog or edit posts from my dash. As in, I click, and nothing happens. (I use safari, btw, because when I use firefox I get these weird gray media boxes at the end of my posts for no reason)
Is it something like the old missing e interfering somehow, or is it just something simple like I left the parking break on?
