So I went through Ao3 and compiled a bunch of numbers, pertaining to which type of fic is most common. Unsurprisingly, slash was definitely the highest, followed by het, and both woefully outnumbered femslash, but to see the numbers visualized made it all the more stark for me. Part of the problem is that male characters in media in general are more emphasized and therefore more popular, but in Doctor Who we don’t really have this excuse, because we have a very large number of brilliant female companions. Male characters definitely do not outnumber the female ones, in Doctor Who. So these numbers are extra gross for that reason. I get that slash is popular, but seriously - ladies are great, too. Don’t hate them, write more about them.
If you want to see the ships I used to compile this data, they’re under the cut. I tried to pick the ones I thought would be most popular.

Just a quick reminder that this picture of the Eleventh Doctor in stockings, suspenders and feather boas exists.
And the best part? It’s drawn by June Hudson, the same amazing woman who designed most of the most memorable costumes of 80s Who, including the 4th and 5th Doctor’s costumes.

AND PANDA!
<3

IRIS WILDTHYME you wonderful naughty thing you!  What bet did the two of them lose to you to provoke this?
Also Panda, dahling, those heels do simply marvelous things for your gams.  Call me, cutie ;)

  3. Dear Jane, I hope you are happy. You ruined my life with House of Cards. Love, Heather.

    You might think I am happy.  I could not possibly… you know the rest ;)

    WATCH IT Y’ALL.

  4. Having been told that Miles Richardson would show up somewhere alongside his father in the House of Cards saga (don’t get me started on Mr. Richardson the elder.  Most definitely, definitely don’t.  GUH), I was ready and waiting to pounce when in the very last episode of The Final Cut, this happened.

  5. Status update:

    Stressed, uninspired and hiding from the world.  On the plus side, have been learning things.  Such as: the character of Cecilia Pollard from A Blind Eye was based on a real woman named Unity Mitford.  Like, to a ridiculous, ridiculous degree—not only the broad strokes but everything about her, from the apartment to the SS boyfriend named Erich to the bits of invented language used in correspondence with her sisters.  Which maybe is a thing that everybody knew but me?  I dunno, the Mitford sisters aren’t that well known in Americaland but I suspect that maybe in Britain everybody knows everything about them and all of you Gallifrey fans on that side of the ocean will have known this all along.

    In any case, will try to wrangle my brain into order in time to come play at chat on Saturday, which hopefully will wake me up enough to get to RP replies then.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, love to all and sundry <3

Sometimes my dash reminds me this picture exists and is still incredibly attractive.

    Did anyone else’s school forbid use of the “bomb” tool because it was too violent?

    Really? Some people need to get a grip.

    If you’re ever mad because Doctor Who scared you too much just remember that the Cybermen were going to look like this in the revamped series

About me

Jane:ficwriter, obsessive fangirl and, most recently, novice RP-er. Doctor Who devotee, gaga for Gallifrey, arse-over-tits for Ashes to Ashes, irrepressible shipper of practically everybody with practically everybody else. I have an unnatural attachment to brilliant, aristocratic Ice Queen HBICs and short, sarcastic government types (preferably balding) with unswaying loyalty to the states they serve. I regret nothing.
