I believe a lot of conflict in the Wild West could have been avoided completely if cowboy architects had just made their towns big enough for everyone.

It took me a minute

Have you heard about Peter Capaldi refusing to act a romantic relationship with Clara? Do you think he'll do well, or be smothered by Moffat?

From what I’ve gathered, Peter Capaldi is a huge fan of Doctor Who that pretended to be a huge Moffat stan until he’d signed an airtight contract, at which point he revealed he hates the direction Moffat was taking the show he loves, plans to systematically undo it to the best of his ability, has been openly mocking and refusing the participate in parts of the script he doesn’t think are true to the character, and insisting that they “won’t chase him off this show,” which is basically saying “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”

I think the new season of Doctor Who is going to be glorious.

I kind of want a show that is just Capaldi on the set of Doctor Who mocking the script and butting heads with Moffat.

All of a sudden I am SUPER EXCITED for the new series to begin! 

Wait, really?  

REALLY?

Looks like it’s time for me to put the show back on my schedule again….

Things I have submitted today: one (1) set of proposal files, one (1) conference abstract, and one (1) academic manuscript.

No wonder my brain is melting at the thought of trying to write anything else.

Just one of the classy messages I’ve received today as a result of this scavenger hunt, in which I never agreed to participate.

This entire experience is stressful, and ugly, and not something I signed up for. So I’ll let this here be the last response it gets from me. This is not healthy for my social anxiety and also not how I would like to spend my afternoon. If you need me, I’ll be tweeting about cats or literally anything else.

Dear fellow Gishers: Knock this fucking shit off. You are asking a favor. If someone cannot or will not do you a favor you thank them for their time and leave them alone.

Jesus Fucking Christ, I cannot believe that has to be said.

Also, please remember that writers get paid.  You wouldn’t get mad when the dentist didn’t give you “one little filling” for free, would you?

THIS. ALL OF THIS. Obviously not what the anon said, because that is some REAL ENTITLEMENT BS there, holy shit.  But everything else, yes.

Clarifying to answer questions: one o this year’s items is to obtain a 140-word fic featuring Misha, Elopus (the mascot), and I think Queen…

No idea, but given that NASA had to ask participants to stop bothering astronauts last year and there’s another NASA item on this year’s list (to give NASA a second chance)… yeah, no.

Also - looks like NKJ herself got the flood of requests but it was a different author that got the horrific responses after declining. NKJ was noting her relief at not having answered any of the requests after seeing that, and also noted that there are lots of unhappy authors today.

I see via Twitter that GISHERS are demonstrating harassment and entitlement all too well. Fandom, we can do better than this: please stop fucking it up.

Clarifying to answer questions: one o this year’s items is to obtain a 140-word fic featuring Misha, Elopus (the mascot), and I think Queen Elizabeth - from a published sci-if author. Predictably, writers on social media are being flooded with requests; Neil Gaiman’s already issued a blanket “not participating” statement, for example. N.K. Jemisin declined a request and was hammered with insulting and rude responses for doing so.
