Now Jenna might be leaving, people are saying Angel Coulby should be the new companion. (And in response a load of racists are getting a bit miffed.)
But I say no.
For once I agree with the haters.
There is but one role for Ms Coulby:
Put that in your Whovian pipe and smoke it.

I can’t wait until December when I will pop on my favorite sweater, pour a nice big mug of cocoa, assemble a big plate of cookies, ignore the weeping of my friends and family who haven’t seen me in a month and can’t believe that I have finally emerged, and return to my sequestered existence where I will still be playing Dragon Age: Inquisition.
so, update: the thing everyone is coming at laverne for is for having read a letter from synthia, a trans woman convicted on a bunk rape charge
synthia was a member of the latin kings, and was sent to clean an apartment to help get rid of a body
she went there in a rush, and was still wearing a skirt while getting rid of the body
someone witneessed it happening, and saw synthia in a skirt, and decided to add on to her story, that synthia wasnt just cleaning the apartment, but had also raped and killed the girl
accusations of rape, and especially of pedophilia/being unsafe to be around children r EXTRMELY common accusations at trans women of color simply for existing
the witness changed their story a few times
synthias now in jail for a lot longer than she would be on just the original charge
and laverne is now being targeted for having read a letter from synthia
this is a very, very easy way for twefs to attack trans women of color, because they KNOW that most ppl wont bother to fact check, most ppl wont bother to read up on it, most ppl who nominally support trans women will hear that and go “oh no, well, just goes to show u cant trust celebrities”
ppl like to make out like laverne landing a role on a tv show means that trans women of color r somehow no longer oppressed as a class, but the fact is that laverne was getting shit for her role from the start, and ppl will take any excuse they can to point to her, and to point at synthia, gladly lap up bogus accusations and go “SEE! TRANS WOMEN OF COLOR R DANGEROUS PPL!”
dont fall for this shit
spread the truth
dont let a smear campaign against trans women of color go unchecked
the bottom paragraph to the first half of the next page are synthia’s recollections tw for mentions of csa
So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?
I need a book about a little girl whose parents had promised their firstborn to different witches and the only way that both ends of the deal were fulfilled was for them to have joint custody of the child.
I love it!
And then the witches, forced to share a cottage while raising their joint stolen child, fall in love…
See now I’m on a feminism bender and I want to talk about all the female characters done massive injustice by this fandom.
Let’s talk about Anora. Let’s also have a fucking talk about Isabela. In fact, let’s have a riveting discussion RE: fandom reactions to “betrayals” of female characters vs. male characters.
