Ten is obviously better at this. He doesn’t even have to watch what he’s doing.
that’s because eleven could probably regenerate by tripping on air, falling against the console, and accidentally choking himself with his bow tie at any given moment all at once the dork
Because you know David probably owns every sonic and plays with them at home.
"Not at the table, dear"
"Sonic. Timelord. Yes."
"Wife. Human. No."
I’m part of a group on Tumblr called Disney Elites RP on another account. And recently we had to kick out a member because of his behavior and actions. His URL is CourtComposer, he RPs a Forte from Beauty and the Beast : The Enchanted Christmas.
He would godmod a lot, hijack ongoing closed threads between two muses, make his muse unbearably overpowered, and injure or drug muses with little to no warning to the mun. And that was just the IC stuff he did.
OOC was a whole other story. He was sending sexual messages to a member of the group. They had been dating but she cut it off with him in the beginning of March. He was still sending the messages clear into APRIL. And she nearly quit the group just to get away from him. A good deal of the members blocked him after we kicked him out, and now he’s following our indies. He hasn’t followed me yet though.
Everybody in the group was clearly uncomfortable with him, he told a lot of sexual jokes even though we told him to stop cause there were minors in the group’s chatroom. He would spoil a movie even though we had JUST told him no spoilers. He would explain things that were sexual or graphic in nature, when we said not to (Again MINORS). And yet he claims to be reasonable. riiight.
He is a drama starter, and if he doesn’t get something his way, he will avoid ending a plot just to keep his way. He thinks his way is the only way, and he’s always right, everybody else is just wrong.
CourtComposer, if you’re reading this and want to try and validate yourself. Be my guest. I’d like to see you try.
Okay I’d like to talk about “The Hand That Rocks the Mabel” for a second because this is, I feel, one of the strongest episodes the show has to offer. It dismantles the “Nice Guy” cliche and seems to be strongly against the sexist notion that women are obligated to date men just because they are "nice."
Gideon is emotionally manipulative towards Mabel throughout the entire episode. One of the arguments victim-blamers like to use is, “Well, if the woman really didn’t want to be with him, she could’ve just said no!” What needs to be understood about emotional manipulators is that they purposely make it frustratingly difficult for their victims to say “no.” Guilt-trips, overwhelming kindness even when it’s unwanted, public proposals with an unexpected audience awaiting a happy ending—these are all tactics emotional manipulators use in order to get what they want without appearing to be the “bad guy”, making it easier to turn the blame around on the victim because hey, they were just being nice.
In this episode, Gideon refuses to accept Mabel’s rejections, even though she made it clear she didn’t want to date him. It wasn’t a matter of Gideon “not being able to take a hint” or Mabel “not being direct enough.” It was a matter of Gideon picking up on Mabel’s not-so-subtle hints and deliberately ignoring them. There’s this grossly glorified belief that there’s nothing wrong with constantly pursuing someone who has already expressed their disinterest in you. That if you try to “win over” a woman hard enough even if she’s already rejected you, eventually she’ll “come around” and everything will work out. Gravity Falls said “fuck that” and had Mabel say “no.” Mabel told Gideon right away that she just wanted to be friends, and despite his persistance (which clearly made her uncomfortable), her desire to be nothing more than friends never faltered. Gideon’s pursuit of Mabel continued even in subsequent episodes (where it was revealed that he was still sending her love letters and wanted her to be his “queen”) and she rejected him every time.
It’s also worth noting that Gideon wasn’t villainized only after he started attacking Dipper; he was villainized from the very beginning. He wasn’t a good guy who turned bad after getting rejected so many times (which would wrongly place the blame of his evil behavior on Mabel)—he was a bad guy from the start because he constantly put Mabel in the position of having to reject him so many times.
This episode is important because Mabel never “came around.” Despite how “nice” his approach was, Gideon’s emotional manipulation didn’t win the girl, and this was depicted positively. That’s why I love this episode so much, because along with the awesome anti-“Nice Guy” overtone, it doesn’t romanticize men continuing to pursue women that have already rejected them.
On a final note, you know what else is fucking amazing about this episode? Gideon is a popular, beloved icon in Gravity Falls. He’s the town darling. Everyone loves Gideon. He’s not a back-alley creep or stereotypically anti-social, nerdy stalker. To the oblivious townsfolk of Gravity Falls, he’s an adorable, charismatic charmer, a miracle-worker, a hero. And he loses in the end. He uses his fame and adoring fans to guilt Mabel into continuing the relationship, even though he’s been told several times that she just wants to be friends, and he is portrayed as the bad guy all the way through.
This is so fucking important to see in a children’s TV show, all of this is so important.
This is off the Bermuda Triangle, where 16+ ships washed up on a sand bar. The mystery is still unsolved
Actually the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been given a scientific explanation: methane vents which have been discovered in that region.
Methane reduces the density of water, causing ships that would normally float, to instead sink.
Methane, when in gas form, messes with the electrical components of aircraft, causing them to fail and sometimes fall right out of the sky.
Methane also causes the water to turn a ghostly greenish color, and the “ghost ships” reported to be seen are simply green reflections of the ships that scatter the bottom of the triangle.
Fucking science, man.
