oh my god no one has forgotten this
it would be impossible to forget this even if we wanted to because people are so often accusing those who don’t like him of just ~not realizing~ he wrote their favourite episodes
in a shocking twist i know precisely who wrote what episodes and that is how i determine which writers i do or don’t like, how radical!
The issue people have with Moffat is his inability to write long term plot lines. People tend to forget the iconic episodes he’s written because of that.
citation needed on “people tend to forget”, the two more likely options are either
a) people liked his work as a one-off writer but don’t like his work as a showrunner, which is reasonable
or b) people do not like his work period, they do not like it here or there, they do not like it anywhere
constantly constantly having people go “BUT BLINK” as if somehow Blink in 2007 should change our opinion of him as a writer-showrunner in 2014 is incredibly tiresome and it happens all the time. “you don’t like his writing????? ummm but he wrote girl in the fireplace!” yeah we know and ‘shockingly’ in many casesis part of the reason we don’t like his writing
all of *THIS* but also: just because I can *tolerate* The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances (they are FAR from my favorite episodes), doesn’t mean I like him as a showrunner. And I definitely do not love Blink. And I openly DESPISE “Girl in the Fireplace”. Soooo… shut up Moffat stans. In the words of GoT: You know nothing, Jon Snow. When I say I hate Moffat, its not a casual thing. I’ve done my research, I’m an informed hater. Even if he wasn’t show runner, GitF would be more than enough reason for me to hate his ass.
a ravenclaw inventing a spell like “ive enchanted this quill so that one dip in an inkwell and it will be able to draw from that inkwell until its out! no redipping!” and their muggle born friend just
"a…pen.you literally just used magic to make a pen"
And then the muggleborn gives them a normal pen and they’re just like “how does it workOH MY MERLIN IT CLICKS” and they just spend the whole class clicking their pen
a lot of people on my dash are talking about how silly it is to still cling to the idea that gamzee makara isn’t evil
so i thought it would be fun to go through my very favorite thing that gamzee has ever done in the story.
this is pretty dash-stretching, check it out under the cut:
A little late but a picture if the moon I was able to take last night when the eclipse was happening!
