Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Dracula's often very sexualised in dramatisations.  I'm trying to remember what he was like in the book (ages since I read it). 

I think a lot of characters in children's books (although certainly not all!) appear asexual, and often celibate.  The Hobbit, for instance - Gandalf could be asexual as well as some of the other characters.   Probably a bad example .... but lots of characters that the issue just doesn't arise for and could easily be seen as asexual - we don't see any sort of sex drive, or romantic entanglements even, and they're not affected by it.  I'm not suggesting there's normally sex in children's books, but for instance, Snape seems to be attracted to Lily, Harry to Ginny, etc.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Celibate? Some monks, surely.
Clearly asexual? Not under the living http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Well, vampires are asexual beings because their bodies are dead, and so they have no bodily fluids. So sex is impossible.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Well, it can smart a bit without them.   j/k - no I don't think body fluids equate to sex.  I feel there's more to sex than sexual acts.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

I was reading this article and thought of the recent discussion here in regards to Mark's tweets:

http://mid0nz.tumblr.com/post/148643160154/tjlc-is-more-than-a-readerly-approach-to-a-text

If Moffat and Gatiss have experienced ¼ of the garbage I’ve gotten from TJLCers they’re dealing with horrible, horrible stuff behind the scenes that they’re not even addressing. When they say they get pilloried– they mean it.  For those of you who experience TJLC as a fun fandom game– I’m here to tell you it’s got a dark history. 

It has been very educational for me, reading about this.  I didn't know this was going on in the fandom (oh, the innocence of not being on tumblr!). 

There was also this article that I posted recently, about Johnlock, but also about the relationship between fans and creators:

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Bottom line: fans have the right to be disappointed a show doesn't turn out how they want.
But no right to make personal attacks on the show creators.
Write your own darn shows!

Thanks for sharing. That's a stuff for a horror story.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Sometimes you have to wonder if some people lost the capability to distinguish real people from characters in their fics.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

It's a concern.

Interesting conversation from both sides of the fence:

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

If yes - it also means he will come to the Con like this! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shocked.png
He looks like Mr Jackson from Hitman/cleaning up.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Radiotimes interview, 13. 9. 2016:

So once again, Mark Gatiss accusses fans of missing "obvious hints" and criticises us for analysing the details of the show.

Nothing new under the sun, but it´s getting annoying.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

Well, the "random unrelated details" are there, so of course we're going to speculate!  And what's the bet that the obvious clues haven't been missed at all?  

I do understand that he's had some flak from the fandom recently, so maybe that makes this sound a bit grumpy ... and of course, it's always more difficult when you can't hear tone of voice.

Re: Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat Tweets

He always has a joke in his heart, a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye.
Love him.
