Please enjoy my random toughts on fandoms I like.
I'm a Doctor Who fan because whenever I see the name Cassandra... I giggle and think of trampolines.
Did anyone else realize the supposed useless male companions (Micky and Rory) both got turned into plastic? They also turned out pretty awesome.
When did Martha find the time to court and marry Mickey? Seriously check the show's timeline.
Could the Chameleon Arch have saved Donna by removing the Time Lord and leaving her memories intact?
In the episode The Girl Who Waited: Why did no one point out that Rory waited nearly 2000 years alone, compared to Amy's few decades?
The Doctor's luck makes him lose companions when someone related to that companion gives him permission to take them traveling. Very sad. There is also a pattern: lost, leave, forget, death (repeat cycle).
I like to think Willow and Tara's relationship in BtVS is a beautiful romance but I'm very aware it is actually a depressing tragedy with a violent end.
Why is it that people keep writing fan fiction relationships that in canon are absolutely insane/abusive/stalkerish/criminal and thinking its sooooooo romantic?
Edward/Bella: Canon is verbally abusive, stalkerish, just a smidge away from isolationist. Its creepy that's what it is.
Buffy/Spike: mental/physical/verbally abusive and rape. My goodness this ship is horrible.
Buffy/Angel: statutory, it is not abusive; it's anguish when they are together. Why does she still love this thing? He even tortured her father figure, murdered a school friend and tried to kill her best friend. (I'm not even going to mention what he did in the comics but that list gets even longer. Outrageously so.)
Scott/Jean: True love my ass. Seriously read the background info on Scott Summers, he's a grade A asshole, adulterer and all the other mutants think their relationship is twu wuv.
X-Men: Days of Futures Past is a Terminator 2: Judgement Day remake. An unkillable man travels to the past to protect the man who sent him to the past from a shapeshifter who will bring about the apocalypse. See?
Why is it so hard to find stories with well rounded, thoughtout and fleshed out Original Characters? I've been reading fan fiction since 2001 and I've probably seen about 30 OC's that are not Mary/Gary Sues.
(If you enjoy X-men, Twilight and a few other fandom's check out author Princess Alexandria on this site. She's written fan fiction of her own fan fiction containing possibly the best OC, Christy Taylor, I've ever read.
For Doctor Who, Merlin and Once Upon A Time check out author LizzeXX. Multiple Original Characters added to full season rewrites. Each with extensively detailed backgrounds and different personalities. The Time Lady, The Professor from The Academic Series is a personal favorite.)
For Bleach time travel fics: how to defeat Aizen easily - when he fakes his death with his own sword, steal said sword and throw it in the senkaimon tunnel for the Cleaner to destroy. Or: replace the imprisoned Rukia with a special gagai and fake hogouko before her execution. Have Ichigo go full transformed Hollow and attract the attention of the Gotai 13, then fight a few captains while shouting about how he will never join Aizen's Hollow Army. Ta DA! Instant win. For even farther into the past: poison the bastard, he is not invulnerable or over powered yet, do it!
