My name is Cassie. Me and five of my friends are the only force, as far as we know, fighting the alien invasion of earth by a species that takes over your brain and makes you its puppet. But those six of us are looking to soon become five, and I’m not sure we can withstand that sort of division.
“My body is not a piece of forest and a pretty girl!” Marco argued.best out-of-context line or best out-of-context line
*considers* I don’t know, I’m pretty sure many from canon could top it. Best out of context line from this fanfic though? Yes. Definitely yes.
The best out-of-context canon line is either “DO YOU JUST HATE TRASH CANS??!” or “I will gladly shuffle my artificial hooves with you, but you cannot have my body. Bod-dee. Dee.”
twinkle twinkle little star,
how i wonder what you are
it’s a flaming ball of gas,
learn some science you dumbass
Calling a star a flaming ball of gas is like calling the Earth a ball of icy fog. It’s really more a ball of plasma undergoing fusion.
A comment on Of Dice and Pen: Sexism in Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who? The anonymous reader who sent this to me added:
This is one of the key problems I have with so many forms of Sci-fi media and the anon summed it up perfectly. In a futuristic world, in other universes and on other planets, the presence of today’s sexism is not only just as problematic as it is in any media - it also doesn’t even make logical sense in the majority of cases. Why is the Doctor, a thousand-year old alien who has been just about everywhere and experienced a melting pot of cultures, acting like the sexist old men from down the pub?
One of the reasons sci-fi is a fantastic genre is the pure escapism it offers, and unlike, say, fantasy, it can avoid the “But in the past sexism was present!” tropes and justifications that are often used (see GoT..) with relative ease. But so often it completely fails to do so, the writers unimaginatively falling back on today’s stereotypes - and the missed opportunities to be progressive in such a small way is very disheartening. I don’t know if it’s down to lazy writing or simply being oblivious that doing this is both very problematic andmaking their world less believable, but I can only hope more sci-fi writers manage to avoid this trap in the future.
and here we have harry potter literally standing on a pile of letters to try and catch one that is still in the air. there are clearly reasons why he doesn’t get sorted into ravenclaw
I made a friend at Maddie’s house :D
