Have you heard about Peter Capaldi refusing to act a romantic relationship with Clara? Do you think he'll do well, or be smothered by Moffat?
From what I’ve gathered, Peter Capaldi is a huge fan of Doctor Who that pretended to be a huge Moffat stan until he’d signed an airtight contract, at which point he revealed he hates the direction Moffat was taking the show he loves, plans to systematically undo it to the best of his ability, has been openly mocking and refusing the participate in parts of the script he doesn’t think are true to the character, and insisting that they “won’t chase him off this show,” which is basically saying “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”
I think the new season of Doctor Who is going to be glorious.
Okkaaaay, you know what bugs me?
A while ago I made a thing for the Stargate fandom. There’s a reboot coming out, so I thought, HEY, let’s avoid confusion
So I named them. I named the old series Alphagate and the old one BETAGATE
Which are terms from, like, the ACTUAL SHOW. There are two Stargates! Hooray!
And a BUNCH OF PEOPLE went “Yay! This makes sense! Let’s avoid confusion! Woohoo”
But then there were like TEN PEOPLE who went “Noo don’t pretend they’re separate that’s wrong” or “Elitism! It implies the old show is better!”
Whaaaat the fuck
are you fucking talking about
Those are the names of LETTERS. Letters! Not numbers! I’m not saying “Alphagate is number one!!!1!!” I’m saying that “Alphagate literally came BE-FORE Betagate, so how about we use a totally sensible yet still cool and show-related term to distinguish the two!” But these people were DETERMINED to make sure confusion over terminology would persist.
Because, I could totally see myself, years from now, browsing some Stargate fanfiction, and getting confused. “O’Neill killed Daniel??? Where’s Hammond??? Why is Apophis a Tok’ra???” Before figuring out that I was reading about the wrong continuity. I just want distinguishing names, man! Because presumably it will all be called “STARGATE”, so…!
Whatever, man. I’ve been tagging all my Stargate stuff with “Alphagate” already anyway, so if anyone else wants to use it, go right ahead. It would make me very happy.
And if you want to talk about this, feel free to message me! I love talking about Stargate, whether it’s about this issue or anything else.
(P.S. Yes, Apophis was a Tok’ra in the original movie. In the credits, the two bodyguards are credited as “Apophis” and “Horus”. Even though not being named as such, it was these two bodyguards that were turned into the Tok’ra for the TV serieses.)
