Allons-y! (Part Two)

If you think you’re the kind of person who’ll like this show, then you’ll love it!
You don’t even need to read this post about why to watch the show- just go watch!

But then again, some people try watching it and don’t really like it very much.
Some of the arguments I’ve heard are that the aliens are cheesy, it’s a good effort but it just doesn’t hold one’s attention etc.

But here’s the thing,

A. the show was created in the 1960’s, most of us weren’t even born then (heck! Even my parents were born after Classic Who started!) of coursethe aliens are cheesy- they probably weren’t cheesy back then!

B. The show was made for children originally but we teenaged and adult nerds hijacked it (as is the case with so many shows, books, movies- raise your hand if you will watch Disney & Pixar movies when you’re 60 years old; raise your other hand if you’re an adult who is still, and will forever be, obsessed with Harry Potter becauseAlways. Now put your hands down on the keyboard, and type a comment down below letting me know of your wonderful, wonderful existence, because you’re totally my kinda person)

C. It gets better soon enough. The aliens and villains get better, and “classier”, the storyline gets complex- it happens, just give it time.

Here’s my argument as to why you should watch the show:

You should watch the show because The Doctor is the best fictional character I’ve come across so far.

Oh God where do I start?

So The Doctor is supposed to be a kind of hero right?
Maybe even like a superhero?

But here’s the thing: he doesn’t like wars, or fighting.
He believes nothing is worth the extinction of any species.
He is all about forgiveness and second chances.
He will give a second chance to the worst of villains (including the Daleks, who were responsible for the extinction of his entire species).

As a superhero, his superpower is that he has two hearts, a larger capacity to love people, he is more compassionate than others.

His weapon? A sonic screwdriver!
It fixes things, not destroys them.

The Doctor is a non-human who teaches us to be human.

I still remember watching Nine in Series One, when he was so happy, and why?
Because, as he said, “For once, everybody lives!” and then he smiled that smile of his.

Oh my God, that scene has been imprinted on my mind and one of the biggest reasons I love Nine so much.

Doctor Who makes me realise all the time just how brilliant humans are, it restores my faith in humanity, so to speak.

The show tells me that I’m not alone, I’m never alone- and I’m not worthless or unimportant either (something all of us have felt at least once at some point in our lives).
To quote The Doctor:

“900 years of time and space, and I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important”

This is actually a very famous quote and I had read it long before I even started watching Doctor Who and I knew right then that I was going to love this show!

The show is also pretty awesome because of all the time and space travelling (you’d think I’d start with that but yeah, clearly not!  )

Time and space travelling is actually a very fascinating subject by itself, and Doctor Who does it all very well.

It tells you of all the possibilities that exist. It makes you take a break from your usual mundane routine and think about the entire universe (possible multiverses).

You suddenly realise that maybe failing an exam that you can reappear for, 6 months later, is not the worst thing to happen to you- and your life isn’t over!

It really puts things into perspective.

It makes you understand yourself better whileyou muse about what’s out there, beyond our small solar system. It is inspiring and humbling at the same time.

And the show is funny and entertaining!

The Doctor is always so “chill”; like okay, we’re all about to die if we don’t act on this quick but Hey! Tell me your name first, we should get to know each other!
What? Your name is Alonso? You’re kidding me!Allons-y, Alonso! I’ve always wanted to say that!

Don’t you love him already?


All you fantastic human beings, go watch the show!

What’s not to like?!


Bigger on the inside! (Part One)

By now you’ve realised that I take my fandom very siriusly- just like every other fangirl and fanboy. So, to help you understand one more fandom better, with all of its rules and warnings and guidelines and beautiful subtleties and nuances, and to complete the SuperWhoLock group, here I am with a post about Doctor Who.
This post, again, comes to you in two parts because Doctor Who just makes me blabber so much!
If you’ve read either of my posts about Sherlockor Supernatural, you know that you do not mess with these three. Here are some friendly pointers to keep in mind when dealing with Whovians:

1. The show is called Doctor Who- not Dr. Who or Dr Who, or anything else you might make up.

2. The person in that show- that alien dude? Sort of the most important person on the show??
He’s called The Doctor. He is not called Doctor Who or anything else from Point 1.

Show: Doctor Who
Person: The Doctor

So far, so good?

3. Most people now start the show by watching the new series, which is fine.
But you need to remember that there was an old Doctor Who (refer Point 5 for more on that), and that the Doctor in series 1 of the new show is actually the Ninth Doctor. He is not the first one.
He is your first, but he is not the first.
Do not call him the first doctor.
You’ll probably fall in love with Tennant’s Doctor (he is pretty hard to resist that way) but he is NOT the Second Doctor, he is the Tenth!
His name is Tennant, see? You can remember that way, yeah??
It really annoys me when people call them One, Two, Three as opposed to Nine, Ten, Eleven!
I suppose it is annoying to most Whovians as well.

You might look at David Tennant’s pretty face and feel like you can’t wait out an entire season for him. Once upon a time, I might’ve empathised but now the feeling is alien to me (Haha… See what I did there?)
I cannot emphasise this enough:
Do not skip nine.
If there’s one thing you take from this post, let it be this. The fandom will not forgive you- I will not forgive you if you skip nine.

5. Most people decide to watch the show, they think it’s 9 series and it could be done and it should be fun (yes, I am aware that that rhymes), but most people, once they start (and as is the case with most fandoms, once you’re in, you’re in: there’s no going back!) realise that Okay, this isn’t all, there’s an old Classic Who, there’s several spin-offs, there’s books.
The fandom is *clears throat and gets ready to deliver the punchline* bigger on the inside!
The concept of this show is so ingenious that it could go on forever- literally until watching fictional shows on TV is a thing.
My grandchildren will watch this show too (well, if I’m around then I’ll make them!).

6. The show has series, not seasons.
That’s because the Classic Who has seasons. Just remember it, not a big deal if you mess up sometimes though.

I have, in fact, not caught up on the show myself. I’m still on the Tenth Doctor, it’s slow going, what with various exams and whatnot (speaking of: Doctor, if you’re reading this and would like to take me away in your TARDIS to have big adventures, now would be a really good time! You won’t even have to ask me a second time) but I’ll finish it soon.
This show is too good to be making excuses about.

How good is it? you ask.
Read the second post to know why I love it so much!

How My Fandoms Help Me Survive

However bad things get, however lonely I feel, I know, that Hogwarts will always be there to welcome me home.

A witty remark by Chandler can cheer me up any time.

Ted Mosby gives me hope, he makes me believe.

The Doctor tells me that there is so much out there that is yet to be seen, things that are yet to be discovered, yet to be experienced.
He makes me see that humans are brilliant!

Sherlock teaches me how to put my emotions aside and focus on the bigger picture, to use my brain and form a plan. Sherlock teaches me to think.

The Hunger Games show me that it’s never going to be quite that bad and that, in spite of everything, the survivors live. And that it’s always better to have lived than to have died.


Well, this is straight from my diary and so it is also a little unpolished but I didn’t want to change a single word.
It’s something I wrote a few days ago when I was feeling really low and hopeless and demotivated.
It is a little different from what I usually post on my blog.

It’s true though, what I’ve written about the fandoms. And it’s not just fandoms, but the things I do, like write, learn new things, paint, etc. but I suppose that’s for another day!

Just thought I’d put it out there for muggles who don’t understand my fandom obsessions, but more importantly, for my fandom people who may feel the same and understand me, or will feel better after reading this.

P.S. I didn’t add Nerdfighteria to it the other day because I got interrupted while writing, but this is what I wanted to write (it sounds more cheerful now, but I remember that it felt a little solemn when I had thought of it that day, so I guess a few words have changed in the span of last few days) :

And I know that if all else fails, I can always turn to Made of Awesome Nerdfighters for help- my super amazing friends with whom I communicate only via the internet (mostly).
