But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’
I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with
i always start like 2 episodes of a new series and never watch it again fuck
I FAIL at making this a three-sentence meme.
"Where’s Derek?" Stiles hadn’t meant those to be the first words out of his mouth; did you see that? or I won! would’ve been more traditional. Screw tradition. Winning the race wasn’t half as exciting as rubbing his victory in Derek’s face would be.
"Not back yet," Scott said, yanking Stiles into an enthusiastic, back-slapping hug. "That was amazing, Stiles. You should’ve seen your dad. He watched the whole thing with us in the control room, he’s so proud of you."
"I’m headed right there," Stiles said, reaching back to put his helmet in the cockpit. "Just—"
"Just as soon as Derek gets in," Scott finished for him, grinning. "Yeah, I know."
"I want him to acknowledge his defeat." Stiles held up both hands, fending off the knowing look Scott was giving him. Scott had theories about Stiles and his alleged fixation on Derek: terrible, horribly wrong theories. If Stiles was a little fixated on Derek, it was because Derek was his freaking nemesis, not because of — whatever else it was Scott liked to imply. “That’s all, Scott.”
"Whatever you—" The proximity alarm went off. "Here he comes."
The emergency alarms went off a second later, sending the flight crews scrambling to clear the deck.
"He’s coming in hot," Erica said over the comms. Stiles bolted toward the control room, elbowing his way through the sudden swarm of emergency med techs. There was a crowd in the control room, too, but they parted for him easily enough, letting him get through to Erica and the captain.
"Try him again," the captain was saying, one hand on the back of Erica’s chair, white-knuckled.
"Lieutenant Hale?" Erica exchanged a helpless look with the captain. "Lieutenant Hale, please respond."
