Interested in learning a bit more about our World Cup champs, U of Texas? Jay Hubert put together a phenomenal mini-doc featuring the top team during their 2013 Fall season. Check it out and pass it along!
"Texas Quidditch, the (TWO-TIME) world champion varsity quidditch team of the University of Texas, won Quidditch World Cup VI in April 2013. However, they lost almost half of their team to graduation the following month, and faced a number of hurdles in rebuilding their team the following semester. Led by returning co-captain Augustine Monroe, Texas Quidditch reemerged with new faces and a new personality in Fall 2013, but with the same commitment to winning and hitting opponents hard that made them an unstoppable force at the previous World Cup. This film documents the ups and downs of their Fall 2013 season, and lends proof to the argument that quidditch is a real sport for real athletes."
A few years ago I was the star of one of the most popular and successful TV shows on television. Life was good. I spent my days fighting aliens, saving the earth and using a series of complex mirrors to try and peer into Billie Piper’s dressing room.
"But he’s happy becausehe’s saving the children!…”
1 - This is Ten saving the earth by destroying the Racnoss in The Runaway Bride. He’s saving 7 billions of his deeply beloved humans. Lots of children there too. And yet, he’s not celebrating at all. Actually, he’s borderline suicidal. Donna has to save him. Genocide is not fun.
2 - And this is Ten saving Gallifrey by destroying the Daleks. All giggling, and junping around with joy. No guilt, no rage, no remorse, just blatant out of characterness.
And since The Day of the Doctor is supposed to take place after Waters of Mars, Ten’s behaviour is even more OOC. In Waters of Mars, Ten painfully learns that changing history to choose who to save is wrong, is dangerous, is hýbris. And suddenly, in The Day of the Doctor, he’s like ”LOL let’s change history, hýbris is cool!”
