goldy_dollar on Doctor Who fandom:

-I have decided that whenever I come across accusations that Rose fans are wanky, I am going to close my eyes and THINK OF THE LOOMS. I mean, really, fandom? You come up with this elaborate backstory where fully grown Time Lords randomly POP OUT OF LOOMS just to have an explanation for why your main character MUST NOT HAVE SEX UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES and it is all based on some spin-off book that clearly has NO BASIS IN CANON WHATSOEVER. But Rose fans are wanky? Okay, then.

I find this endlessly amusing. Hahaha. Looooooooooms.


Context is for the weak, like sleep. I still think weaving is an inaccurate metaphor for genetics.

So, so true.

And the nature of Who fandom, for all the time that I've actually taken any notice of it, has been to attempt to construct a canonical whole out of all these disparate source materials written over a period of fortysomething years by people who wouldn't have known (or cared about) the difference between continuity and continuance.

My hypothesis, backed up by a certain amount of dabbling in the fandom myself, is that people do this because it's fun.
