07:03 pm - Huh.
Turn my back on fandom for just a few hours (Because I had to actually, you know, study and all), and the shit manages to hit the fan. Multiple times.

Firstly, on the plagiarism fiasco: Apparently it wasn't just Cassie Claire. If ever a post was going to cause wank, this'd be it.

Meanwhile, over in the Doctor Who fandom, we have some interesting news about S3, as well as Doctor and Martha pics.

And naturally, the photos have been causing chaos. Of many kinds (just take a look around, and you'll see), but most notably, the declaration of Martha as "a chavvy whore". To which I respond: Bitch, please.

Oh, and apparently if you wear dark trousers and shoes, you are a "clone of Rose".


Personally, I really like Martha's outfit - the hair is rather interesting, and I love the jacket. The suit is a bit less of a nice surprise, but it has grown on me a bit. So not hate, but I'll wait and see about it.


Oh, and we have some David/Billie RPF which is giving me teh lulz.

Oh, fandom...

ETA: To the people who have been in the fandom longer than me. Exactly how many late 20th century companions did the Doctor have in a row? Please post your reponses to everyone whining about having a saying they can't have two 21st century companions in a row.

ETA2: Ah, the sweet taste of sanity.

RPF always makes me shudder.

And Heidi? Seriously, how can you defend someone like CC so loudly and not delete your own fic while no one is looking? *sighs*

Over at the OG someone state Martha looked like she had an 'attitude'... whatever that means.

I don't normally read RPF. That said, this one made me LOL.

I am suddenly very, very worried what's going to happen next in HP fandom. Something spectacularly bad seems imminent.

Attitude, eh?

the declaration of Martha as "a chavvy whore".

Rose. Martha. Rose. Martha.

WHY ARE YOU SO STUPID, FANDOM???

I will make note of this next time people starting bitching about Martha being too similar to Rose because she looks 21st century.

Chavvy whore?!? I'm not fond of Martha's outfit, either, but she is in no way inappropriately dressed.

*sigh*

It's probably a good thing that I defriended time_and_chips some time ago.

Oh, wait. The "clone of Rose" comment is even better! I've got dark trousers and similar shoes as well. Am I now Rose 3.0 or what?

The w-word should be banned from describing any woman who doesn't actually do it for a living. And even then I'm not too fond of it.

I love the jacket too. I want it.

I might have to make myself one just like it. ;)

There's some motivation for me to get my sewing workroom set up, eh?

Everyone seems to be hating on the Doctor's suit/coat combo. I actually like it better than the suit by itself. Though that is starting to grow on me as well.

..but can we please get rid of the red tie and go back to the cream/black/brown/any colour other than red chucks?

I've also seem remarks about Martha's hair, and how it should be impossible to achieve by herself. I don't know how it looks from the back, but I'm pretty sure that with the right aids I could do my hair in a style so that it looks like that from the front. By myself, yes. I do like her, from how she looks, though they might have been a bit more.... I dunno, creative? There *is* a certain similarity with the way Rose dressed on some occasions, although it's by no means the same look.

On the CC debacle... There are no words. Or maybe there are, but someone else has already said them.

It does seem to be one of those things that grow on you. I hated it this morning, but I am warming to it somewhat now.

As for the hair thing... um, I don't think it's nearly as hard to do as some people think. And as for the similarity - I can sort of see it, but it's hardly clone worthy.

On the CC debacle... There are no words. Or maybe there are, but someone else has already said them.

Say them again. Just pretend it's original. ;)

That suit is ugh. The colour isn't bad on its own, but it is a little bright, I think. My main problem is that it looks godawful with the coat, and it doesn't fit him right.

I can see why they chose it though; it compliments her jacket.

Martha, on the other hand, looks lovely. Can't wait for season 3!

Also, is anyone else lulzing that those calling Martha "chavvy" based on these pictures would be the very same people who threw a hissy fit at suggestion of Rose being a chav? I am. ;)

I suspect it's one of those things that will look better in action. Though I hope it's only part time, at most.

Oh, absolutely. It's hilarious.

Meh. Nice pics, but I'm saving my opinions on Martha until I've actually seen her in the series. I like to play safe. ;) The actress, for what her role was worth, was good in S2's finale.

Though I must say that I'm predisposed to like her just because so many seem to dislike her. *rebel.*

That's probably the best way to go about it.

That said, I'm with you. The best way to make me like a character is to bash them.

OMG! I'M A CLONE OF ROSE! *cries and invests in some heavy duty mascara*

I just replied over at Doylefan's LJ. :) Really, I think you ought to do a poll:

Who is the biggest fandom whore? Martha Jones or Ginny Weasley. :)

I think that seems to be the majority opinion.
