Art and Fanfic. Yay. Lover of sci-fi/fantasy, Sherlock and other detectives, and have watched Hollyoaks for 12 years.
I ship Brendan Brady with anything that moves. Except Foxy. Ew. Stendan FTW. Or ... maybe ... Stalkden? Pretty please?
I get Sherlock is asexual and that, but I can ship him with .... anything that moves, incidentally.
I ship Captain Jack Harkness with anything that moves, too (especially Ianto). Welllll except Gwen Cooper. Some things really are just against nature :-\
I was having this discussion with my friend, and we came to the same sort of conclusions. They still have nerves, their brains still work. They still got skin. They still got prostates. As my friend said, hey, don’t need an erect dick to have an orgasm. Heck, they even breathe, even though they clearly don’t have to, and I think that’s mainly sense memory.
At the moment, there’s a bit of a discrepancy as to what they can feel - Amy says she couldn’t feel Philip touching her, but I don’t think she would sleep with him (in the first series) if she was getting nothing out of it. I could probably pull out other instances of them being able to feel someone touching them. We know that they cannot feel pain (the doctor telling Kieren he shouldn’t feel discomfort from the contacts; the fact they could cut Simon’s back open - *sobs forever* - with him still awake). Do they actually feel desire? Well, they don’t feel hunger, but they definitely feel other things. It’s all chemicals in the end. Sheep brains get them drunk, make them feel good, so something is still going on there At the moment, I am leaning towards them being able to feel some things. .
Also, I think we can allow a little room for wishful thinking and interpretation. These guys rose from the grave. The rules of science and believability have already been skewed somewhat.
I think Amy was a bit of a curveball in terms of the whole ‘being able to feel’ thing, but I think her losing the ability to feel may have tied in with what she thought was her turning rabid. I think her losing the ability to feel was a further symptom of what was happening to her, rather than a normal state.
The average PDS must be able to feel something, otherwise walking and basic navigation would be impossible. They wouldn’t be able to judge their strength for picking things up, for touching each other. Amy had probably lost her feeling gradually and had adapted as she went along. If Kieren & other PDS could feel discomfort from the lenses, they MUST be able to feel to some extent, and Amy is the ‘odd one out’.
But that’s just my theory!
Pseudo-intellectual white dude who prefers to imagine that he’s more enlightened than feminists and also is uncomfortable with the thought that he’s part of the problem and also has a incorrect conception of feminism. (via brighterthanroses)
- Abraham Lincoln never fought vampires or zombies
- Adolph Hitler was not machine gunned to death in a movie theater in Paris
- Marty McFly did not invent Rock and Roll
- Richard Nixon never dispatched Dr. Manhattan to end the Vietnam War
You never complained about these changes to history, so shut the fuck up about a black man playing a fictional spy, you idiotic, racist pricks.
