1 Doctor Who:  Ugh.  What a hot mess.  Worst. Fanfic. Ever.  Much as I couldn't stand the capering lunatic performance of the new guy playing the Master, his objection to the Cybermens' plan was spot on.  And the Timeless Child thing was just abjectly stupid.  I cut away after an hour to watch The Walking Dead and haven't gone back to catch the rest of it yet and I'm relatively sure I don't want to.

2 I don't object to the notion that Time Lord history is false - that goes back at least as far as The Three Doctors.  But they couldn't leave it at that; they had to go full Mary Sue.

3 Right--I object to this particular fanfic retcon.
I'm willing to bet that the Child's first incarnation being black--just like the prior incarnation of the Doctor in an earlier episode--was an attempt to stoke outrage, too, but it's such stupidly transparent bait  it would be embarrassing to be annoyed by it.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
