For this week’s installment of “Leticia Has a Lot of TL;DR Thoughts And Feelings And Has The Constant Need to Ramble About Them On The Excuse She’s Not Wasting Time But Just Practicing Her English”, I give you: Amelia Jessica Pond. Proceed with caution and beware the length.
Because UNF. I know most people consider him a companion (I guess I do too) but to hell with it, I’m cheating. I just love Captain Jack so much. I love his humor and his sassy-ness with the Doctor - something the Doctor needs in his life every now and again. I love his overt, hypersexuality and the interactions he has with the Doctor and other characters because of it. In fact, one of my ultimate dreams for Doctor Who would be to have Captain Jack come back to the show to interact with both Eleven and Amy. Eleven is so asexual most of the time that seeing him deal with Jack’s advances would be amazing. And Jack and Amy together would probably cause a black hole of flirting. Poor Rory.
Day 3 - Favourite Villain/Monster/Alien/Baddie of the Week
God damn it, another hard one. There are SO MANY good villains, but if we’re going by the “Baddie of the Week” characterization (which to me rules out the Master since he’s a returning character) then I have to pick one of the only villains to ever truly terrify me.
SO. FUCKING. SCARY. They’re so pretty in statue form, but the second you turn your back or even BLINK they come and kill you. Blink is one of the most terrifying episodes of any television show I’ve ever seen and it honestly made sleeping that night difficult. I don’t know how Moffat is so good at making me terrified of random shit, but thanks to that evil genius I was scared of the dark for at least a week. And yet for how utterly scary they are, they’re still…cool. Moffat, you evil, brilliant bastard.
Oh man, this is a tough one. Because to tell the truth, I love almost all of the companions (with one notable exception). But if I have to just pick one, then it would have to be the one I loved first:
Amelia Pond is a fucking badass. I’m probably biased because I watched Series 5 first and fell head over heels in love with everything about it, but even after watching all the other episodes of New Who I still love her the best. Donna is a really close second, but something about Amy feels so real to me that I can totally identify with her. She was the Girl Who Waited for her imaginary friend, and brought him back into existence with the power of her belief alone. I adore the relationship between her and the Doctor as well as her relationship with Rory, both of which are too cute for words. Despite what some people may say about her, I love her to death and think she’s the perfect companion for this Doctor.
Well if you’ve ever looked at my blog for two seconds you’ll have figured it out already, but it’s this magnificent creature.
Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the Doctor’s incarnations in their own ways. I love Nine’s gravitas, Ten’s passion, Four’s…insanity, and Five’s silliness, but something about Eleven just warms my heart in every way. His childlike joy in everything around him, the care he takes for his friends, and the sense of oldness that breaks through every now and then all come together to make this wonderful version of the Doctor. I think most of all, I just love how alien he really is - like someone who’s studied the mannerisms of humanity but doesn’t quite have them down pat. But damn it, that won’t stop him from trying.
Normally I don’t go for this kind of stuff, but I’m bored out of my mind and who knows, this could be fun.
