I feel like I am the only person that did not come out of series 5 shipping Amy/Eleven. I get it, because chemistry + so much touching + chemistry, but I don’t know. I just don’t know. I can’t really describe it. Also, these are my feelings on Amy/Rory, brought to you by the…
Let me just say that I love you and I love all of this.
I could probably rant for pages upon pages about why I dislike Eleven/Amy (and Doctor/Companion in general) but I’m not going to. Suffice to say that it really grinds my gears how Eleven/Amy sidelines Rory, how Rory always gets emasculated by the shippers to make Eleven look even more magnificent, or how Rory in Eleven/Amy fanfic is always made to look slow, dim-witted, thick, and dull when he is NONE of those things.
Did they actually watch the same show as me?
And don’t even get me started on the party line that says Amy only married Rory because she felt sorry for him, she doesn’t really love him, she felt obligated to. Hello—Amy Pond doing anything because she feels obligated to? Not likely.
Number one reason why I dislike Eleven/Amy now: it’s adultery. No no no no no no NO.
Rory is lovely and wonderful and I think the show is all the better for having him around. I just wish the media would pick up on this fact, along with some of the people involved with the show. Even now, it’s still all “The Doctor and Amy this, the Doctor and Amy that, this is what the Doctor and Amy will face in Series 6, blah blah.”
You’re forgetting someone, guys! There’s a second full-time companion who matters just as much!
So much this. It makes me so sad to see Rory get pushed aside and treated like he’s not an equal companion next to Amy (hello, action figure people! I’m still waiting on my very own plastic centurion!). His character has value. Series 5 would not be my favourite series if he wasn’t in it.
Due to my recent obsession with the new animation My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I felt compelled to return to my slightly atrophied skills of lecturing. As one not usually inclined to obsession towards a product (except Coca-cola, but really, who counts that?) I felt the need to…
