Mid-twenties Doctor Who fan from near London. I reblog a lot of RTD era gifsets and I stan for virtually everyone in that era (except Jack. sucks to be Jack lol). Not a Moffat fan, to put it politely.
I am shinyopals on LJ as well, and that site is where my loyalty lies. If you're curious about my DW fic or any more wordy stuff about my life, that's the place.
I try to tag everything with the obvious tag (ie: 'the Avengers' or 'Harry Potter'). Sometimes I say mean things about Doctor Who that I don't want to broadcast, in which case I tag with 'DW related nonsense', although if you're tumblr saviouring Doctor Who then what are you doing here? I will tag for New Who spoilers with 'dw spoilers' for the first day or so, but after that I give up.
That’s cause Marvel is IT now and new, because of all the movies. DW has been around for the past years that its in the background now.
yeah, it’s not all that surprising, although my nerdly circles have never cared that much about DW even when it was new. It’s just an adjustment for me - I’ve gone from never having the opportunity to talk about my fandom IRL to having it happen constantly.
… I’m not sure I like it lol
The only time someone talked to me about Doctor Who here is when my phone rings which is the DW theme song.
haha yeah, even when I have DW stuff (I have a t shirt or two and my phone case) it doesn’t even come up. like, everyone’s heard of DW but it’s like… more niche to be nerdy about it than Marvel.
man, the weird thing about getting into Marvel fandom is how much more people talk about it than Doctor Who. Like, I went three years at my job and got involved in 3 conversations total about Doctor Who (that that includes the party when I dressed as a Dalek). But Marvel and superheroes? Once a week.
and god male nerds have a completely different way of talking about superheroes. they make them boring.
