How is this possible? You should be dead.
You of all people should know that anything is possible, brother.
Sleepy Hollow | Pirates of the Caribbean AU
While investigating a strange case of a ghost ship sighted near Boston Harbor, Abbie and Ichabod find an old book of legends containing Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman. Ichabod soon finds out the truth of what really happened to his older brother James, who was believed to have defected to join a band of pirates.
Well what now? Why are you here?
I believe I might be of some service in helping you rescue your wife, Katrina
this needs to happen.
Red + Lizzy
Wherever I am, whatever I’m doing, if you are in need, I will be there.
Those looks on the ambulance >.< oh GOD! They kill me. I’m torn wanting episode commentaries of the pilot or of Anslo 1 & 2. I WANT THEM ALL!! It must be James, Jon Bokenkamp, Joe Carnahan, Michael Watkins (director of Anslo 2) at least. I’m extremely curious about what they have to say about Liz and Red scenes while watching them. They directed/wrote it that way or James and Megan added to it? I can hope
(and pray it happen)
Look at that, and we don’t even know yet if the real season finale could beat the awesomeness of this ep…
IA. that ambulance sequence really got to me.
Looks pretty bad ass until you realize he’s just shooting cockroaches off an Einstein poster. Also nice Elvis lip in gif one.
'And in the social media era every single facet of Who is analysed in painstaking detail on an internet that breeds strongly held and not always generous opinions. One is that Moffat's female characters are empty vessels defined only by their relationship to the Doctor: Amy the childhood friend, River Song the brave-faced but pining on-off wife, Clara Oswin the mystery to be solved.
"The thing is," Moffat argues, "the show is about the Doctor, and the effect he has on people’s lives. We don’t tend to see the companions away from him because if we did that it wouldn’t be Doctor Who. I’ve heard this criticism of lack of interior character about River Song – but she’s the only one who’s ever turned him down. I think I have written companions who’ve carried on with their own lives. The Doctor is central not because I think men are better than women but because he’s the central character. How is that not also true of Rory?"’ - Interview with Steven Moffat by Andrew Harrison for The Guardian.
I have a very simple response to this feeble excuse for sexism. And it is this:
Did Russell T Davies manage to characterise Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, and Donna Noble as three-dimensional women in his era?
Was RTD’s show still essentially about the Doctor?
What do we learn from this?
Answer: That Moffat simply cannot write his female characters, nor can he take constructive criticism, or even see what is wrong with his misogynistic approach.
If he honestly believes he has given his female characters adequate characterisation, then what must he think of us ladies, eh? We must be rather simple to him, all obsessed with men and wanting to be mothers in the end.
And on the subject of Rory, I think, Moffat, you will find that you gave Rory a storyline about becoming a hero, winning the ‘girl’, you gave him a consistent career, gave him more time to talk about his emotions over not being able to have kids than the woman whose reproductive system you used as a plot line, and gave him a family where Amy had none that were given more than a moment of screen time.
Not buying it, Steven. Not buying it at all.
I have to interrogate the idea that the show is about ‘the Doctor’. The Doctor was always a rubric through which English people were examining their lives. Always. Moffat doesn’t seem to understand the show or how narrative itself works at a basic level. Most writers of shows like this understand in theory and practice that they are writing about concepts of their own culture and time.
I’m utterly flummoxed that anyone watched classic Who and thought it was purely the story of some guy? It’s about people, modernity, Englishness, the impact one person can have on another, what a single experience can mean to an entire life, the vastness of the unknown and human ignorance….
No wonder the show sucks, he thinks it’s a biography of some guy rather than a modern English epic.

The chorus is magnificent and I love how he smiles as he plays!!! *U*
Seriously, just take three minutes and acknowledge this beautiful young brother and his talent. It’s worth it.

That’s my girl…
I rewatched the episode today and this scene completely breaks my heart for some reason. They both look genuinely scared - maybe it’s just that he’s trying to communicate, but his eyes look really panicked to me. Although knowing Red, he might not have been.
I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble. A thousand, million light years away. They will never forget her — while she can never remember.
