if you ever think mythology is boring or serious business or whatever shit
just remember that cerberus, the hell-hound and guard dog of the underworld, comes from the root indo-european word ḱerberos, which evolved into the greek word kerberos, which got changed to cerberus when it went from greek to latin
ḱerberos means “spotted”
hades, lord of the dead, literally fucking named his pet dog spot
is pansexuality not caring if you find an alligator
If the alligator is limp, is it a reptile dysfunction?
we need to get outside
This is what a (male) friend of mine said when we were talking about girls losing weight or trying to tone up to get guys, and I wanted to share :
“You don’t need to do it for “guys”, but glad you’ve pegged onto the little known truth that guys generally don’t give a fuck, if it’s within a certain range, cause horny does not equal picky!”
He also said to stop worrying about legs and try to love yourself, because confidence in yourself is way sexier than skinny!
That is actually very, very well phrased. “Guys generally don’t give a fuck”…Not sure what that says about us, but it’s bloody accurate
FUCK YOU MOFFAT
YOU AND YOUR EGO HAVE GONE TOO FAR
HAHAHAHAHAHA EXXXXCCCUUUUSEEEEE MEEEEEEE
wow i didnt think it was possible for one man to singlehandedly ruin doctor who but WOW MOFFAT’s DONE IT!!!11
This is some real shit. Absolutely unacceptable.
MY LOVE OF JOHN HURT IS CONFLICTING WITH MY ANNOYANCE OVER THIS!
I really really really really really really really really don’t like this.
Buuuuuuut, I think there’s a way for it to work.
The idea of John Hurt playing a “forgotten” regeneration, is really annoying. It does just seem like the most untidy storytelling ever. Apart from anything else, that’d mean the reshuffling the Doctors, meaning Matt Smith ends up being 12 rather than eleven. Which is fucking confusing, even for Doctor Who.
But, thing is, it’s Doctor Who, which - in the original Latin - means “anything can happen even if it’s the most ridiculous shit you’ve ever heard”. So, why not scrap the “forgotten” regeneration idea, and make John Hurt an alternative regeneration.
I mean, every third episode has some sort of parallel universe in it, so why not have a whole divergent timeline going on. They could still throw in the Time War as part of the explanation - something happens, reality goes screwy, the Doctor gets duplicated . One Doctor sticks around in the universe we’re familiar with, the duplicate ends up in the alternate reality and carries on regenerating, being a badass, etc.
The fact that this alternate Doctor is never mentioned is pretty easy to explain away - either “our” Doctor just doesn’t remember (for whatever reason - the original idea has him forgetting he regenerated *shrugs*); or he didn’t know it’d happened; or, what the hell, maybe it’s just never mentioned cause, you know, the Doctor…secrets…duh…
I don’t know. To me, that just seems like a more elegant, more Doctor Who-ish way of getting around Eccleston not returning for the anniversary.
