- okay so here’s the thing right about amy pond
- when amy pond was a child her parents were murdered by a creature living in her house that she didn’t know about
- that accessed her house by going through a hole in the fabric of the universe that she also didn’t know about
- which altered her thoughts (to the point that she was later able to reconstruct the universe), which she also didn’t know about
- her life was heavily influenced at a young age by a visit from an alien man in a blue box who told her he would be be right back
- her belief in this man caused people to believe she was crazy
- no really; that’s canon, the twelve years she spent being told she was crazy
- twelve years she also spent, again unknowingly, being childhood best friends with her part-time-lord daughter
- who was born after a pregnancy that amy also did not fucking know about
- after months and months during which amy’s brain was disconnected from her body, sent off on adventures, and again NOT TOLD that this was happening
- (not to mention how this child was immediately separated from amy after her birth, again, without amy’s knowledge)
- and now it turns out that while amy was being unknowingly held hostage during her unknown pregnancy, amy’s body was—in some unknown way—rendered incapable of bearing children
- so say what you want, have whatever opinions you want about whether or not the ~gave rory up since she could not provide what she wanted~ thing was sexist
- seriously; knock yourself out, i don’t care either way
- this is still a show in which the lead female character’s physical and mental wellbeing is CONSTANTLY and CANONICALLY either out of her control or called into question
- this is still a show on which the lead female character’s ability to make her own choices about her physical and mental wellbeing is CONSTANTLY and CANONICALLY denied to her
- and you can call that whatever you want
- you really can
- but when you cut it in half and peer inside?
- it looks a whole fucking lot like sexism.
all of fucking this
“She’s like Wendy in ‘Peter Pan’, she’s wearing a big silly nightie and a dressing gown and slippers. She returns to her childhood, on the night before her wedding, the night she’s supposed to grow up. She’s flown off with Peter Pan to have an amazing, mad adventure on a fairytale ship.”
- Steven Moffat
I could see her being a queen.
“COME ALONG, POND!”
All of time and space, everywhere and anywhere, every star that ever was… Where do you want to start?
This gif sums the entire dynamic of the Doctor, Amy and Rory.
The Doctor leads, going head on to the adventure, almost recklessly.
Amy follows closely, trusting the Doctor completely and eager for adventure.
Rory takes his time, following Amy and the Doctor but always coming through.
Karen on Amy’s relationship with Rory and the Doctor in Series 6:
While many fans enjoyed the complications of the Doctor-Amy-Rory dynamic last season, Gillan considers her character beyond that now. “I don’t really think there’s a love triangle, certainly not anymore,” she says. “I think Amy and the Doctor have got past that sort of thing.”
She believes playing Amy as a wife this season will be interesting.
“I mean, she such an unlikely wife, but there she is, married, with her husband, on the TARDIS. So I think there’s lots of fun to be created in that.”
THANK GOD. More Amy-and-Rory shenanigans, please.
Love this photo. <3
I admit it, the first thing I thought when Amy and Rory stepped into the TARDIS at the end of The Big Bang was, “Oh my God. It’s their honeymoon. They’re married. SHAGGING ON THE TARDIS.”
Not that that hadn’t happened before, but, you know.
But apart from those dirty thoughts: Oh, yes, please. Amy + Rory = <3 :)
OH THANK RASSILON FOR THIS. <3 <3
I will ship Amy/Rory to my dying day.
Do you suddenly become a different person when you get married?
Why I don’t plan on getting married. No chance of anything changing ever.
Season five of Doctor Who - “The Eleventh Hour” - showing Amy/Amelia Pond’s house… with a stairway that apparently leads nowhere.
Note from Sewwy: What I love about this is that Moffat is just using his wit and cleverness to kind of push the whole Perception Filter thing - I doubt very many of us at all noticed the Stairway That Leads To Nowhere because we were too transfixed on Amy: Perception filter indeed!
