drax discovering that gamora is not, in fact, a sex worker. drax apologizing deeply for calling her “whore.” drax going on to hurriedly explain that on his world, sex workers are revered, highly respected, and trained in multiple martial arts. drax apologizing. he meant no insult and he really is very sorry
#i’ve seen so much criticism for the whore comment#but drax wouldn’t call her a whore if he didn’t get that from somewhere#i.e. the guys in the prison calling her a whore#and him thinking they meant it literally#not ONCE did he be like ‘ugh wtf i cannot be close 2 this PROSTI get her ouT OF HERE gross’#he was like ‘AH YES THIS SEX WORKER IS SPIRITED AND A GIFTED WARRIOR! I LIKE HER!’#and that says a lot more about his character than the whore comment frankly

20:What’s your favorite writing program?
Anything with words in it. Right now it’s Google Docs because the words don’t get lost as easily if something crashes. Yup.
44:What’s the weirdest character concept you’ve ever come up with?
Hmmmmm. In Mass Effect, elderly foulmouthed asari matriarch who teams up with her turian granddaughter to fight crime. Never did get that one finished.
49:If you could write a collaboration with another author, who would it be and what would you write about?
Aw, I dunno! There are a lot of talented ficcers I’d love to write with someday—RvB-wise, punishandenslavesuckers, thought-, and themumblybee come to mind—but I have no idea how that sort of thing works logistically.
And rosa-acicularis. Dude. Someday, when our fandoms overlap more firmly again, it’s gonna happen.
Dude! I get so excited every time I see you’ve posted fic, and then I have that heartbreaking moment when I’m like, I know absolutely nothing about that fandom. Can I read it anyway?
One day, dude. One day we will be in the same fandom again, and it will be glorious.
Okay, I have to admit. Even though John Hurt was FANTASTIC, Harrison Ford would’ve been quite the performer. A lot of these would have been equally on par with the British run.
The only problem is, had it been an American TV series, it’s unlikely that the regeneration process would have been instigated. William Hartnell’s condition is what prompted the BBC to examine how to gracefully replace him should he become too ill to keep recording. Regeneration was a cheap trick to replace the main character without upsetting the audience. A happy accident is what came of it, and that’s what’s allowed the show to run with itself for so long. Otherwise, it might’ve been cut from programming and eventually rebooted from the very beginning in a more modern setting, like we often do.
Still cool to think about it though.
