I’m very off again on again, mostly off. So maybe I’ll check out Listen?
Well, it is a Moffat episode. So. (I try to stay out of the Moffat-hate stuff, because while I admit he has a lot of flaws, he also manages to hit a lot of stuff that really works for me, at least in DW.)
But if this is an arc episode - it’s too early to tell - I think it shows some promise. Though it clearly works as a standalone.
I haven’t really liked a Doctor Who episode since the 50th (I mean, eye-rolling at Moffat’s lecturey tendencies aside, I haven’t hated any of them, I’ve just been meh) but ‘Listen’ actually turned out pretty good. Or at least, intriguing. So that’s something.
omg apparently artificial banana flavoring is based on the gros michel banana which was wiped out by a banana plague in the 50s and the banana we eat today is a totally different thing called the cavendish and thats why banana candy doesnt taste like bananas do you know how lied to i feel. like there was a fucking banana apocalypse and no one told me about it until now
I was totally cool with keeping my old iPhone 4S after I realized I had procrastinated too long on the 5S, but now that the 6 has been announced I am *grabby hands.*

Also, I know hardcore Apple fans have cornered the market on smug for, like, more than a decade now, but damn, Android people. Damn. You like your phone? That’s great! But I don’t really care.
He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.
He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.
I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.
Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king?
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.
Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.
Children, children. Yes, he was playing by the rules, and yes, he gets to be the villain. In lit crit, you get to have your cake and eat it too!
And then run away from it when it turns into a whirling tunnel cleaner death machine.
That analogy got away from me a bit. And is now chasing me down a hallway brb
