So I punched this white woman out, then the paramedics pulled up across the street. On their way over to her, this woman accidentally hit one of them with her car. Both paramedics proceeded to pull her out of her car and beat her to death. Then they came over to save this other woman’s life.
The Teacher and The Nanny. The Magic School Bus is a TARDIS, and Mary’s bag is bigger on the inside. No one will ever convince me that this is not true. Oh, and I ship it.
For crying out loud, the Magic School Bus actually does travel through time and space, easily changes it’s form like a Chameleon Circuit, and is casually ALIVE in certain ways. It’s a friggin’ TARDIS in all but name!
Anyone who has ever said the doctor could not be a woman has literally never seen either of these characters in action.
It’s a literary study of fanfiction and it’s REALLY really good. It takes fanfiction seriously and looks at it culturally, socially, academically. I have only read the forward and introduction but DAMN am I loving it. And It’s so insightful. I Love that it confirms some of the things I already suspected. Fanfiction is older than people think. Much, MUCH older. (try midevalish times). And some stuff about fan culture that I hadn’t really thought about.
