My name is Michelle. I post things. I'm an American, Nerdfighter, YouTube fanatic, traveler, volunteer, television enthusiast, ΑΞΔ, Hawkeye, and human.
I'm far from what I once was, but not yet what I'm going to be.
Because some days I have exactly ZERO patience for Martha Jones hate.
Martha rocks my world.
I could write an essay about Martha Jones the things she did. Martha Jones is awesome. End of conversation.
Martha deserved better, but series 3 was so much more…realism, really.
Also, dear fandom
“I’d forgotten not all victories are about saving the universe.”
That’s the thing that makes a companion awesome? Really? Not that humans are awesome? No such thing as an ordinary human? Because ordinary humans are all extraordinary BECAUSE they are ordinary humans?
clearly we don’t like Who for the same reasons dude
Oh man yes this.
Also, highlighting the other companions’ accomplishments just underscores how often the female characters’ greatest achievements are things that are completely accidental or incidental to them. The metacrisis was something that *happened* to Donna more than something she did. Rose became the Bad Wolf through her own stubborn determination, but still… once she accidentally transcended time and space, the rest was pretty easy.
Martha wasn’t destined for cosmic greatness through some predestination loop and she wasn’t shazamed by phlebotinum into some kind of super being.
