I mean, it’s only my theory, and the sources supporting this rumor are shady to say the least, but—I know everyone’s been really upset about this and I’m trying my best to spread my little bit of trivia.
Thanks for the submission, I’m actually familiar with this! I believe there was also a ninth doctor in the comics that drew a bit of outrage as well, because fans felt that he couldn’t be canon if it was in the comics.
However, I very much prefer Eight as the Time war Doctor because he’s so full of holes. He’s an amnesiac and that just adds an interesting layer to the seriousness of what he has to face. He’s not an incredibly serious Doctor either, so watching him learn to handle the Time War could be entertaining and surprising.
I feel like Nine is the Doctor at the tail end/aftermath of the Time War. I’d be frustrated for them to jam another doctor in, is what I mean. It’s not that he can’t draw on other media in the Doctor Who franchise, and sometimes I wish he would (seriously, I want the Looms to be a thing, even if it weaves baby time lords to go along with flashbacks of a child doctor) but I feel like introducing a new Doctor all together is sloppy, short cut writing.
Lately it seems like all Moffat knows how to do is add a twist to the twists, and that does not make a plot. I’ve been a huge fan of his since I came into Doctor Who, but I’ve been steadily loosing confidence. Honestly what bothers me most about a whole other Doctor is that it opens a door to a previously unexplored part of the Doctor’s past. And while that can be fun, Moffat is not the one I trust to go there. Mystery can be a good thing.
The reason why this one caught my eye (or ears) was because of this:
“Oh oh Switzerland
You’ve taken way my breath now once again
You’ve left me with a sense of compassion
For the ones who
Cant pick them selves up off the ground
I never thought id have you as a friend
I’m praying it was not at all pretend
I need you now
To help pick me up from off the ground
I could see Rikki playing an acoustic version of this to Alex for fun and he would be like “why Switzerland idgi wow I must be really gone”
I am sorry I keep finding songs and it’s really silly I just really like this headcanon okay
Everything’s beautiful and nothing hurts.
So basically Rikki would be all like “I love you, don’t say bye, take me with you”
I’m thinking about this way too much I’m sorry help me.
Anything that involves thinking about my characters this much is awesome, there is no such thing as thinking too much about them.
I do love this song though! It shows up on Wyn’s playlist a lot just for the general haphazard giddiness it has in feeling.
Take me to your best friend’s house
Marmalade, we’re making out
I really do have to draw some Rikki and Alex huh.
I like the idea of the sort of relationship you give them even if it breaks canon to smithereens.

It’s simple. If you’re gonna annoy me with your arrogance, stupidity, etc. i’m gonna get subtly get my revenge on you for wasting my time.
wow. The worst I do is get short with them and flip them off under the counter. Well, and let them fight their own battles on the pin pad (since it is apparently rocket science) to eat up their precious time. The job might suck half the time, but I still pride myself in a job well done, and that includes customer service..
This is mean and unnecessary. Customers are still customers, you might as well be swinging a bat at an already angry beehive. Why would you put your job in danger for petty revenge anyway.

“Maybe if we make it really sketchy no one will notice how bad it is”
They completely take our fandom for granted.
I think the show’s staff takes our fandom for granted. We wait God knows how long for a new season and now they’re only giving us 12 episodes (10 if you dont count season starter, and that’s if they don’t have a 2 episode finale too). Then afterwards we’ll be right into another drought. Meanwhile Adventure Time’s season just ended and the new one’s literally in a week or so. They have the ability and the means to produce more episodes, they’re just taking advantage of our fandom’s dedication and loyalty. It’s seriously ticking me off.
This really ticks me off. Really anyone who acts entitled to a show ticks me off. Yes, shows are more successful because people like them, but they do not owe us anything. They are trying to make money, you are watching it for free (unless you buy dvds). They are working on a budget that the company and executives gave them and I think it’s fanfuckingtastic how well they do.
How the HELL is making less episodes taking advantage of your pony loving ass? Taking advantage of you is the Gameloft game that asks for real money for digital ponies. Making a decent amount of episodes (but not a huge amount like you apparently need to live) is a bit of a shame but not taking advantage of you.

Submitting this again because I think I accidentally deleted it the first time….sorry if it shows up twice. This might not even make it into the queue cause its kind of long and ranty, but at least I got it out of my system.
This could be triggering – Suicide and SI
In a recent RR someone commented that people might not speak to retail employees not because they are being rude but because they (the customer) are depressed and barely holding back tears and don’t want to lie that they are fine to answer the question.
So, the assumption is that just because we are on the clock that we’re all 100% actually factually happy? No-one that works retail is suffering from depression, or anxiety, or any other disorder that people so often use to defend the way we are treated?
I am depressed. In fact, I’m suicidal.
It can take me as long as a half hour just to pull myself out of bed in the mornings.
The last thing I do before I go to work EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE is lock myself in the bathroom, look at myself in the mirror, and make the decision of whether today is the day I kill myself, or if I keep going….just one more day….for my son. When I decide to keep on…just a little while longer….I cry until I vomit, then I get up, wash my face and go to work. I do the same thing when I get home from work. And before bed.
At work, I have to put on a huge fake smile and be happy, whether I’m happy or not. I can’t let the customer see any real emotion. After altercations where I’m called a lazy stupid bitch, or a fat ass, I will lock myself in a bathroom stall, take the box cutter or scissors out of my apron, and cut. I think about how nice it would be to end it all right there, just slit my wrists and bleed out on the filthy bathroom floor, right there beside the pee and shit that some customer left on the toilet seat for me to have to clean up.
If I don’t smile, customers complain to my manager. If I don’t greet them, they complain to my manager. If I don’t lie and say, “I’m fine thanks,” when they generically ask how I’m doing, then they complain to the manager.
So I can barely smile at my own child, but I have to put on that smile and kiss the backsides of THOUSANDS of people who treat me like crap all day, for 9 or 10 hour shifts, sometimes for 14 days or longer without a day off, while the voice in the back of my head is chanting, “I can’t do this anymore. I want to die. I can’t do this anymore. I’m going to kill myself after work. I can’t do this anymore. But I can’t do that to my son. I can’t do this anymore. Why does it have to hurt so much just to live.”
Customers don’t want to acknowledge that we, as retail workers, are HUMAN BEINGS. They want us to be robots that they can treat however they want, because of reasons. But if we do something as horrible as not smile at them because of your own issues you’re told to suck it up because “its your job.”
Just because we work behind a cash register, wear and apron and a name tag and have to take your verbal abuse with a smile or possibly lose our job, doesn’t mean that we are not suffering every bit as much as anyone else does.
Working my way to white. So far two bleachings and two tonings.
It’s me! But on another blog! YEAH.
I HOPE YOU’RE ALL REALLY EXCITED TO SEE THE SAME PICTURE AGAIN.

Yesssssssssss. Though over the years I’ve come to accept there is such a thing as a knack, nothing is accomplished without hard work! Sometimes people say “talented” like that makes it easier.
I work at a pharmacy that does, I have to admit, have rather long receipts over half the time. The thing is, the receipts are long because there’s often several coupons on the end. I always make sure to point them out to people because customers constantly complain that they forgot their coupons or they expired. Since our coupons don’t pull any of the “use it three days from now or later” bullshit, the customer can happily re enter the store and continues shopping with their new coupons.
However, long receipts/coupons are apparently completely enraging to about 30% of the population, and I can not figure out why. I get snapped at several times a day that “This is too long!”, “I never remember to use them anyway!!” or, “How many trees did this kill?”
The best are customers that are angry they got coupons after they’ve purchased everything, even though we have a coupon center to use before checkout/the coupon only printed BECAUSE they bought these particular items. Gosh, I’m so sorry that I can’t magically make you remember to use your coupons, please, be angry at me. I’m sure I deserve it, and this is no way is related to your forgetfulness and high blood pressure.
I must hear this at least five or six times a day from people who don’t know how to use the credit/debit card machine. “Which button do I have to press?” “Oh I have to enter my pin yet?”, followed by the above, like it’s the worst thing in the world.
When ever people say this I have to wonder how they handle other simple functions in life, like the difference between revolving doors and sliding doors. Do they stand there and squint at it, too? How about getting in a rental car and suddenly not knowing how to drive it because it’s different from your car. IT’S THE SAME THING.
This doesn’t stop me from saying “they’re all different” to customers to comfort them when they seem embarrassed at their inability to function in the 21st century, however.
I can understand that people aren’t wired to memorize how every store’s card reader works, but it’s incredibly easy when it tells you in clear english exactly what to do.
