The Fangirl Challenge | [1/15] Pairings | Rose Tyler & The 9th Doctor (Doctor Who)
Rose, before I go, I just want to tell you, you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I.
Female Characters: Guinevere(4/5)
Elementary | “You look at people, and what do you see?” [x]
Opera singer was probably never an option..
I loved that she’s capable of being a cool tactician AND a barefoot, loose-haired artist. I don’t think Irene and Moriarty are mutually exclusive; I think she enjoys inhabiting multiple psychological spaces and deploying them like pawns in a high-stakes game of chess. Nor do I think one of her iterations is any less ‘badass’ than the other. I swear being in fandom has given me a distaste for the word ‘badass’ because it’s almost always used to venerate certain types of women, and certain ways of being women, at the expense of others. Irene the passionate and sensual artist is just as complex and powerful as Moriarty the criminal mastermind; it’s her ability to inhabit both roles with such subjective conviction that makes her an amazing character.
