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.

Re: But yea yelling loooooooms randomly is awesome and amusing


Dancing is the Who metaphor for sex? I am greatly confused. So much in this post has made me realise how very little I know about anything about doctor who. Well, anyway, I'll just keep watching and enjoying....

Re: But yea yelling loooooooms randomly is awesome and amusing

The ep of the series that introduces Jack involved this metaphor heavily. And was in fact called "the doctor dances", I think. (Not quite as heavily fangirlish in this series)

Re: But yea yelling loooooooms randomly is awesome and amusing

Well... dancing is the Who metaphor for sex, in one episode, and then the fandom picked it up and ran with it--past the endzone, out of the stadium, down Belling Road, past that McDonalds down on Birch Avenue--no, not that one, the other one, keep going, and make a left, hop the bus to Albuquerque, from there you can get a flight to L.A., and from there to Beijing, wait five-and-a-half hours for the TARDIS and take it to Woman Wept BUT THE CLOCK IS RUNNING DOWN! FANDOM HAS TWO MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSING TEAM COMING AT IT BUT *OH MY GOD, IT'S A HAIL MARY PASS*, WE SWITCH SPORTS ENTIRELY AS DANCING-AS-A-METAPHOR-FOR-SEX GOES RIGHT OVER THE GOALIE'S HEAD INTO THE NET AND LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

*SNICKERSNORT*

It's mentioned in "Girl in the Fireplace" as well.

Re: But yea yelling loooooooms randomly is awesome and amusing

For some reason, as I read this I thought, "Bus? I always take the train from Albuquerque to L.A."

I think I'd better go to bed.
