heyyy so i don’t know if any of you dudes remember me talking about how i was going to make a fab ace/aro fandom blog but guess what is now a thing?

anyway, if that thing sounds like a thing that might interest you, you should check out strings-of-a-different-nature which is co-modded by me and aromantic-eight

we’re planning on doing some super-cool things already and it’d be awesome if you gave it a look!

    Narvin is my favourite of the new characters in “Gallifrey”. It’s his story — we don’t realise it, we really don’t realise it, but actually, he is the true heart of Gallifreyan society. Because he’s the only character in this, certainly in the first two series we’ve done, who is never out for himself. […] Because he is the moral core of the series. Everyone else is at extremes of either political wrangling or personal wrangling, and Narvin is the eye of the storm, and everything rotates around him.

Anonymous: Could you explain the whole "i don’t really have depression, i’m actually just a lazy piece of shit" = you've got depression, thing? It rang a bell for me and I'd like to know what you meant. Thanks :) 

roachpatrol:

one of the most insidious things about depression is it doesn’t ‘feel’ like depression. even when you have it, you know you have it, you’ve been diagnosed—you still find yourself thinking, no, nope, this isn’t it, can’t be. it’s like the mental illness equivalent of that knight in monty python that keeps going ‘it’s a flesh wound! i’m fine, really! this is just a scratch, i’ll be up in a moment!’ even after all his limbs have been hacked off and he’s lying there helpless.

one of the most common narratives around it is that no one realizes they have depression until they start checking off what they consider to be normal aspects of their lives—and personal character flaws— against the checklist for depression symptoms. really key symptoms include:

  1. lack of motivation
  2. constant tiredness, even exhaustion
  3. finding no pleasure or satisfaction in activities they used to like, or that they know should feel good
  4. not seeing the point of doing anything
  5. increased and even unmanageable anxiety and fearfulness

any one of these symptoms drains away your ability to do work, cope with setbacks, overcome difficulties, or stop procrastinating. multiple symptoms create a pretty perfect storm of intertia and anxious self-loathing. you stop doing anything because it’s hard to get going, unpleasant while you’re at it, and afterwards there’s no reward. why bother, right? and when you’re always tired you get conservative of what little energy you can manage, and when you only feel emotions on the ‘empty to miserable’ spectrum you get really aversive to making mistakes. the whole mess very quickly and very insidiously loads every single thing in your life with toxic emotional baggage.   

and then someone says to you— or you say to yourself, ‘stop being lazy’. and that haunts you forever. because you’re lazy! the work is so easy. everyone else does it. everyone but you, you lazy asshole, lying around all day not doing this totally easy thing that you should be able to but aren’t. you don’t have depression! of course not. mental illness is for victims, is for blameless innocent people who can’t be blamed for being so understandably sick. but you can be blamed. you have a character flaw, and it’s getting worse by the minute. 

and that is how people who have been diagnosed, who have been medicated, who have been through therapy, can still spend all day hiding in bed and chewing themselves up over their failure to just somehow magically be a good, healthy, useful person, instead of treating themselves to a sick day and saying ‘yup! it’s depression. i need to be kind to myself.’

(omg do any of you listen to big finish just this audio story is so funny)

One thing I forgot to mention which REALLY bothered me. The time-lords are a race, a creature, an alien, a civilization, whatever you like to call them but they are born timelords, correct? Some of them fought in the time war. Many of them went to the Academy. So what was with the line about the Doctor never becoming a time lord if he continued crying? I don’t understand. Am I missing something? Or was a line that made no sense and potentially changes everything just thrown in there carelessly and we were told to just go with it? What were your thoughts?

Hi!

No, they’re not born Time Lords. As early as Deadly Assassin (1976) we have this line:

ENGIN: Well, the biog data extracts of Time Lords are colour coded according to Chapter.
SPANDRELL: I didn’t know that.
ENGIN: No? Well, your duties usually involve you with more plebian classes, don’t they, Castellan.

And then in Invasion of Time we have this:

RODAN: Why bother? That’s their affair.
LEELA: That’s whose affair?
RODAN: The guards and the Time Lords. All the boring people. Do you know, I’ve passed the Seventh Grade and I’m nothing more than a glorified traffic guard?

And so on and so forth throughout the series.

The Time Lords are the ruling class of Gallifreyan society: Gallifreyans are not born Time Lords and only a very select few ever become them. A Time Lord is genetically different from a baseline Gallifreyan, though, due to something called the Rassilon Imprimatur, which is received when they graduate and allows them to bond with a TARDIS and access the Matrix.

A baseline Gallifreyan:

  • Has two hearts
  • Has a respiratory bypass
  • Can regenerate (well, some of them can)
  • Is telepathic
  • Etc

A Time Lord like the Doctor is a baseline Gallifreyan with a bit extra (namely the TARDIS bond and some additional temporal senses). It’s also possible to make a human into a Time Lord with the Imprimatur - Ace became one, and this is probably also what happened with River since she has two human parents.

The species is called Time Lords and not Gallifreyans because, frankly, Time Lords are classist ponces who don’t pay enough attention to the lower echelons of their society to care about erasing them 99% of the time.

(If there aren’t any Ceruleans out there agitating for the species to be renamed Gallifreyans to stop lower-caste erasure I will be very surprised.)
