Daily Mail headline generator!

It became necessary for me to link the above site, after it generated for me the classic headline, WILL LESBIANS INFECT THE QUEEN WITH AIDS?

Great for teh lulz.

On some fandom related lulz, I found this article.

I haven't the faintest idea what most of the article is about, but the analogy used to explain the confusing stuff amused me immensely:

"The dichotomy is, as per usual, best illustrated with reference to Doctor Who:

Rose Tyler is engaged in a frantic, neurotic attempt to root herself and The Doctor within some kind of matrix of meaning and identity, played out against the backdrop of her electra complex, whereas Martha can more readily assimilate the irrational contradictions of travel in time and space because basically, she's tagging along for a laugh, with maybe the promise of a shag at the end of it."


And on the subject of Doctor Who, I am trying not to amuse mysef with the thought that certain sections of fandom *cough*Rosefen*cough* seem determined to have S3 turn out rather, well, Rebecca-esque, with Martha as the new bride. Shakespeare Code probably didn't help, what with it sort of feeding into this mentality.

Which means I am now picturing the Rosefen as an army of Mrs Danvers'. Jasper Fforde would be proud.

ETA: WILL TONY BLAIR IMPREGNATE THE MEMORY OF DIANA? *dies*

I just read a an analysis of S2 Rose that basically said, she ended the Time War forever in PotW, thus justifying any amount of smugness on her part.

I'd be more open to this theory if it hadn't been posted after "Daleks in Manhattan".

GREAT JOB ENDING THE TIME WAR, ROSE!

Egads. How can people, you know, avoid the blatantly obvious like that? Not to mention, said smuggery is precisely why there was a Torchwood to get her stuck in an alt-Universe.

...Say, from that argument, that means Rose being forever stuck in the alt-Universe is justified.

In a vast cosmic sense, the Doctor and Rose needed to be separated for the safety of the multiverse. They basically caused the events of "Doomsday" -- had Torchwood gone unfounded, the rift would be a mere footnote in a dusty UNIT file, the Daleks would still be floating through the void, and the alt-verse's polar ice caps would be intact.

WAY TO GO, TEAM TARDIS.

PWNED BY DESTINY?

Even on just a more personal note, pychologically speaking, Rose is still at the stage of life where she is working out her identity. And considering identity is often seen as a match between your own perception of yourself, and how others see you... having a peer group of one person, who is not, shall we say, the most objective viewer of you can't exactly be the healthies way of identity formation.

Yes, adolescent identity formation was the topic of one of my lectures last week. So I can actually back this up with citations

Was that thought of as a good thing? I remember her being irrationally fearless whilst being in a Daleks eyepiece face "I destroyed him" *shakes head*

You know, Rose was incredibly lucky the Daleks didn't exterminate her where she stood, then.

She forgot she wasn't all wolfy at that point. It's interesting to note the time line, & the problems that their actions caused. Stepping on a lot of butterflies...

One of the things I tend to think as a defining character trait of Ten is the fact he tends to be, shall we say, a bit hyper-reactive - a tendency to act without thinking. Which is why he really badly needed someone to be there and make him consider what he was doing - which Rose, it has to be said, wasn't providing.

Why does no one ever give the TARDIS any credit for that at all?

Because then people would have to realise just how disturbing it is that Rose's crowning moment is one where she's stripped of all agency and is essentially a passive vessel?

I think some of the 'ignoring the TARDIS' thing may be so that it's entirely /Rose's/ mind doing the Bad Wolf thing, so it's Rose being the Bad Wolf 'to save the man she loves', ignoring any ambiguities (like 'having the Bad Wolf get shippy with you is freaky-scary', 'she obliterated a Dalek fleet with a wave of her hand', 'its power nearly killed Rose, and cost the Doctor a regeneration', etc.),

On the one hand, the Bad Wolf is terrifying. On the other, it's a chance to see Rose get shippy with the Doctor. You can pretty much guess where some people are going to jump.

The shippiness of the kiss and all gets a little less OTP romantic when you acknowledge it's really a threesome, and Rose is by far the least powerful and most passive member of the three.

It's basically the TARDIS borrowing her body. If Rose still has a piece of the Bad Wolf inside her, does that mean the TARDIS is part-Rose?

Also, this theory floating around, that the alleged Bad Wolf references in S3 mean Rose is coming back -- completely miss the point that half the Bad Wolf never left the show. Poor thing had an arrow in it a couple of weeks back; she can't be happy about that.

Just...LOLZ.

And yeah, I was a RosexDoc shipper (still am in a way I guess) but more of as friends then anything else. I just...can't see them getting down and dirty, as she never really tried to sort out any of his enigma, despite the fact that he was angsting over her when she left. But then, she was younger, Martha is more of a go-getter...and, hilariously enough, I didn't think I'd like Martha. Then I watched the first epi with her and was like...man...she's a little like me...this is neat!

And, the rest is history.

By the by, thanks for expressing interest in my dark!Ten fics. I'm going to start posting my first DW one shot at the end of the week or next week (finals week, ya know? No time!) on my lj. You're welcome to stop by if ya feel like it, I need good crits!
