ask me anything meme - day 23  
Do you have a favourite fandom and or pairing/ship? verdande_mi

This used to be such an easy question to answer to... Before Moffat came Doctor Who was my favorite show but now, to me, it's not the same! But still the first show I think about when someone asks me this question... so yes, the answer is Doctor Who and my favorite paring/ship is Ten and Rose!

I can't fight it! :D

There no reason to fight it :D :D :D Never a reason to fight something you love and enjoy!

I'm a Moffat fan so his run has worked really well for me, but I have good memories from the run of Davies too. Many excellent episodes, storylines and three of my fave compantions, Martha, Donna and Jack.

I'm not really a fan of Ten/Rose, or the Doctor with any compantion sans River Song really.

I think Moffat is very clever but I don't like some decisions he made... I think his writing is very good! I enjoyed a lot his stand alone episodes when he was one of the writers in the RTD era, his episodes were extremely good... But he changed some of the things that I really liked and he's always trying to do something bigger every year... IDK... There are things I like and things I don't, I guess. I think he should have a partner-in-writing that keeps him "calm" lol xD

I learned how to Love River Song because I disliked her so much the first time I saw her... Now I really like her!!! :D

I love the fact that people loves Doctor Who in so many different ways and for so many different reasons... It's a great fandom and I think people don;t fight as much as in any other fandom... or maybe I'm just lucky and I end up talking just with people like you that like to have a conversation about what we like about it and what we like less :D

I'm so glad we virtually met!

Moffat’s run does have a very different feel to it than the first run of Davies. I am sure the new showrunner will add a whole new feel to it too. In many ways, the run of Davies and Moffat feels like different shows, and like with me and LOTR (book and films) I love it all both because of and despite of at times. It’s a massive universe and it’s not possible to like and enjoy it all.

I don't remember if I liked or disliked River Song, I think I liked her well enough, but I do remember not liking her first two episodes at all. Which is strange, for now they are among my all-time favourites and it doesn't add up to me that I did not like them to begin with. I can't really fathom it. Strange things!

Fandom-hate, will never understand. I try my best of avoid at all costs. How hard can it be to talk to people politely and with respect even if you do disagree about something? I hate the toxic some people bring into fandoms. And yes, the show is very varied and I think people can attach onto different things about the show.

So am I, I love having you on my flist and talking with you :) :)

Oh Doctor Who!!! I need to watch some more of it, I really enjoy the show!

And ugh, the gif you have from when they were on the beach. SO SAD!!!

I hope I still have the brain for all the mindfuck/sci fic
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 24th, 2016 05:58 pm (UTC)
You should! It's such a great show!!! I think is definitely the best Sci-Fi around that's why I want it to be perfect all the time, and when it's not I get upset :D

Ery-chanerychan86 on October 24th, 2016 05:56 pm (UTC)
I totally agree with all you said! Fandom Hate is so bad and I'm glad is not part of my daily internet experience!!! :D

They're definitely two very different writers... Moffat was concentrating more on the humane side of the Doctor while Moffat is more on the Sci-Fi side of things, so to me the episodes that Moffat writes are more interesting on a story level week after week (he comes out with pretty cool stuff) but with Davies I connect more with the characters and I enjoy the ride (he creates puzzles and I love when all the pieces go to place). So yes, I agree. It feels like a different show!

Fandom hate comes from people that don't know how to argument a thesis... When you don't know how to answer you get upset and aggressive... That's why, now that I think about it, I think the DW fandom has less haters, because who doesn't understand the show gives up and move on...

I so need to watch this!

You do! The first season can be though because they didn't have much money, but the storylines are SO DAMN GOOD! When you have things from the pilot that connects throughout the end of the 4th season you know you have great minds behind a show and people who actually care about the fandom!

The show is definitely not the same, but I still like the show a lot since Moffat. Sometimes thought it's like "MOFFAT!!!!"
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 24th, 2016 10:24 am (UTC)
I know the feeling!!! I like the way he writes... I loved his episodes in the RTD era, but sometimes he goes too far!
Miss Ashley: [doctor who]imagine_peace on October 24th, 2016 10:26 am (UTC)
YES. Like The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances are amazing episodes!
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 27th, 2016 10:14 am (UTC)
I agree!
