For sure!! It’s funny because while I would never put all of them in the same character type, I would compare each of them to each of the others with no problem. Haruhi compares the boys to each other successfully; Haruhi and Tamaki are both perceptive and caring enough to push back Kyoya’s outer shell; Haruhi and Kyoya are often seen on the sidelines trying to keep the others in check (not to mention both of them are rather frugal and practical). Yet I’m not sure what it is that all three of them have in common. Hm.

This was so beautiful that I had to put it up on my wall and examine it as if it were an exquisite piece of art.

Above we have a quintessential example of early 21st Century prose by an aggrieved man. The author of this piece is unknown, but we can surmise by his inability to properly say “shit” to a woman and his assurance that he likes “admirable” female characters that he is most likely a “Nice Guy.”
The anonymous author employs deliberate obtuseness in order to provoke a reaction from his audience. Notice how he pretends no British individual supports the idea of a woman portraying the Doctor, despite clear evidence to the contrary, even amongst actors who have portrayed the titular character on the show. Then there is the stunning self-centeredness regarding his perception of third wave feminism; he is only interested in equality it grants him the “right” to hit the women whose arguments make him so incoherently angry that he is unable to rationally reply.
His final challenge attempts to trap the reader. Do we respond and grant him the audience and validation he so desperately seeks, or do we ignore him and let him believe he has won? But perhaps we have a third option: to turn the focus back on him and examine how his comments display his deep insecurity in his own sense of masculinity, something he feels can only be reclaimed by challenging a girl on the internet to a fight and preemptively declaring victory because he fears he cannot engage with her on an intellectual level.
a work of goddamn art oh my god
okay but Vastra freaking out about the Doctor being hurt by Clara because she’s been hurt like that before by people she trusted is just so beautiful I love it and I love her.
not to mention they talked about it, seriously Vastra yelled and Clara yelled and they figured out they weren’t actually fighting in the first place and then they ganged up to solve crime and such what a beautiful thing I love this show.
don’t you fucking dare tell me that clara oswald is not a well-rounded character after that- she was terrified and upset and selfish and accepting and afraid and unsure and forgiving and just give a round of applause to clara oswald everybody because she fucking deserves it
