"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."
Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.
And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

imagine the joy of experiencing this.
"It’s not dead. It’s resting."
That is an ex-parrot.
He has ceased to be.

Arguments against Moffat’s females that make me side-eye you.
- Saying any of them are a Mary Sue because it’s not the 90’s and that term is so loaded with a hatred for female characters who are special, that it has lost all value as constructive criticism.
- Saying that the women are “too special”. You’re watching a show about a time traveling alien who changes his face occasionally. Why is that okay, but it’s not okay for the women to be special?
- Saying you want a normal female companion you can relate to. It’s a bit ablest. And also not true when you consider Clara was completely normal until she chose to be extraordinary.
- Saying Amy was only eye-candy because she wore short skirts. That was a choice decided by Karen Gillan and the wardrobe department on Doctor Who, so in affect you are criticising Karen for what she chose to wear. Also it completely ignores all of Amy’s character arc.
- Amy becoming a model. Pretty much see above, seeing as Karen was a model and it was probably chosen as a nod to her and her career.
- Saying they fit into that Mothers, Virgins, Sluts and Bitches category thing, because if you put Molly “we’re-having-quite-a-lot-of-sex” Hooper in the virgin role, Martha kind-of-ran-a-drug-cartel Hudson in the mother role, Irene dominatrices-aren’t-prostitutes-why-does-everyone-think-dominatrices-are-prostitutes Adler in the slut role, and Sally I-protect-and-comfort-kidnapped-children Donovan in the bitch role, Moffat isn’t the one reducing these women into two-dimensional roles.
- Saying all of his female characters are the same. Just saying all his female characters are the same. I hope above shows why.
