Amy Pond A to Z [inspired by]
do u ever get really sad cuz amy pond is a beautifully complex, unique and multilayered character but fandom reduces her to a couple of traits and disregards everything else about her because they hate the person writing the show
Amy Pond + violence
She defaults to violence and weaponry from the very beginning — our introduction to adult!Amy is her cricket bat — but she’s not always effective. Gradually she gets more dangerous, but doesn’t think about what that means until she kills a human* being. After that she moves away from automatic/reckless violence.
This is one of the things I find most fascinating about Amy: she’s BY FAR the most casually violent companion of New Who.
One thing I always kinda liked about Amy/the costume department that dressed her was that she tended to have particular clothes she kept coming back to. (Accessories, too - not pictured here: her red scarf and the little A necklace she wears in almost every episode.)
I know, I know, it’s probably more a case of reusing clothes that’d already been bought rather than a concious character decision or anything, but I still like it.
I don’t know. Well, my life has changed so much. There was a time, there were years when I couldn’t live without you.
This is stunning in every concievable way.

There are a lot, a LOT, of points to be made about sexist elements of Doctor Who/Steven Moffat’s writing.
"Amy, River and Clara are all the same person", on the other hand, is really, really not even close to being one of them.
