Of course, but I also linked to your blog because I liked your tag commentary concerning River and the Doctor.

Everyone I’m following loved them with a few reservations??? I guess it depends on who you follow.
Oh, I didn’t mean that, sorry if I was unclear. I meant that I was afraid that the fandom was going to react negatively to the first few episodes and I was really, really going to have to stay off/quit Tumblr because I don’t want to be in a negative environment concerning something I love. But so far everyone is enjoying it and as a result I have been okay/kinda enjoying my time on here again. I’m just hoping it isn’t short-lived.
Thinking a bit more about that ‘too bad you’re a solider’ line, and I think one of the main reasons why I disliked it was, as I said before, reminiscent of ‘I WOULD NEVER USE A GUN!’ in that it’s a general moral statement that the Doctor, of all people, shouldn’t be making. People are bound to hypocrisy when making general statements so seeing him make that same mistake was frustrating for me. It’s a personality trait of his that I don’t like, how prone he is to making general statements and then backpedaling on them knowing full well that he shouldn’t make them in the first place, and it’s what makes my relationship with the Doctor as a character so complicated. Sometimes he does things like try to inspire wonder and awe in a dalek and I just want to hug him…and then he does something like this and I want to slap him.
"Hello. My name is Luke Skywalker. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
"Never go up against a Mandalorian when death is on the line!" *immediately falls into Sarlacc pit*
"Bye, boys! Have fun storming the Death Star!"
"Wampas Of Unusual Size? I don’t think they exist."
"Do you want me to send you back to where you were? Unemployed, on Hoth?"
"It just so happens that Obi-Wan here is only mostly dead."
"Give us the access code." "What access code?" "Chewie, tear his arms off." "Ohhh you mean this access code!"
"I could give you my word as a Corellian…" "No good. I’ve known too many Corellians"
"Why can’t I see?" "You’ve been mostly-frozen all day."
That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying “I know”, what he meant was, “I love you.”
"Why do you wear that black mask? Were you burned on Mustafar, or something like that?" "Oh no, it’s just that they’re terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future."
"Luke doesn’t get eaten by the rancor at this time. "What?” “The rancor doesn’t get him. I’m explaining to you because you look nervous.”
