A summary of Moffat era Who
Except it’s not.
I mean, the images above are incredibly sexist and just generally awful, but it is also horribly out-of-character and doesn’t in any way accurately portray Amy (or the Doctor and their dynamic).
Amy Pond couldn’t care less about seeming “ladylike” .
She was more in trouble at school than Mels and she was an outsider in Leadworth all her life. When we first meet her, she hits the Doctor over the head with a cricket batch and sends an aquaintance to “have coffee”, because she’s decided to use his car to trap the Doctor in order to make him give her answers. She’s a kissogram and she runs away with the Doctor at the night before her wedding. She spends her entire second episode in her nighty and at one point sits on the floor to break open a lock, just because she can. She’s just generally not particularly interested in following rules or conventions - often including instructions by the Doctor.
Not to mention that she saves the day or actively contributes to solving a situation plenty of times. Off the top of my head, this would include how she:
- Frees the Starwhale and saves Starship UK
- Saves herself from the Weeping Angel in The Time of Angels
- Is the driving force of the attack on the Dalek ship in Victory of the Daleks and subsequently saving Earth
- Infiltrates a school full of aliens with limited success, but she still saves Rory’s life later
- Remembers the Doctor back into existence
- Battles pirates with a sword to rescue Rory and the Doctor
- Saves River’s life by figuring out how to bring down the Teselecta with the sonic screwdriver
- Survives on her own for thirty years while being hunted by robots
- Saves Rory’s life in The Wedding of River Song
- Figures out what happens to the Silurian and fights dinosaurs
So that game does a great disservice to Amy’s character - but not half of the disservice done by people in the fandom when they assume that this is actually an accurate reflection of her character or her role on the show.
what in the fuck, that cannot be real
please don’t tell me that’s real
