SO vis-à-vis our previous post — twitter has confirmed that Matt and Karen are in fact both in NYC right now and were at the same party last night!! We’ll keep you updated if we find out more but KAREN AND THE BABES ARE ALL IN THE SAME CITY, GUYS. FINALLY. EVERYONE SCREAM. [but don’t spam-tweet karen or arthur about it. obvs. y’all know this.]
There’s a special on right now (EST) about the Doctor’s companions which I’m told includes interviews with Karen in an ugly jumper and possible mentions of Matt.
“Well, that hair, those limbs, that surprising brain. it’s like she’s from another planet. She’s a true eccentric. Karen provides my funniest moments on a daily basis. Seeing her run. Seeing her move. Seeing those limbs extend. When she opens her mouth, it tends to be funny – unwittingly, but funny. But underneath her mad exterior, she’s sharp. She’s just perfectly Amy Pond. People love her. She’s hilarious.” - Matt Smith
Hello lovely people. Because you’re all so brilliant and our old one was wildly out of date, here is a BRAND NEW REALLY REALLY LONG LIST full of hours and hours of working links of Matt and Karen shenanigans. Have fuuuun
ALSO, some lovely girls are hosting a Matt/Kaz Valentine fic exchange SO if you love writing fics just as much as you enjoy reading them, go over there and apply !
If you haven’t go do it now! Let’s make them have matching awards this year as well!
We got a few messages last night asking us to put this together in case some of you would like to ask Matt something Karen in the upcoming Q&A related but are lacking ideas so here’s a bunch of suggestions from us (and to be perfectly clear you DON’T have to ask any of these and we do not want to censor or control any of you since we love you all. Those anons gave us a scare last night.)
WE HAVE TO TRUST THEM, WE JUST HAVE TO TRUST THEM.
AND MAYBE IF SOME OF YOU COULD HELP US KEEP AN EYE ON THIS AND THIS TAG TO MAKE SURE THERE ISN’T ANY NONSENSE ON IT? YOU COULD BE LIKE A SECRET MATTANDKAZ POLICE. IF YOU FIND A STUPID QUESTION IN THERE, JUST NAG AND SEND ASK TO THE PERSON WHO POSTED IT UNTIL THEY TAKE IT DOWN. WE CAN DO THIS. AS MUCH DAMAGE CONTROL AS POSSIBLE IS GOOD.
YOU CAN ASK MATT WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET’S AVOID EMBARRASSING QUESTIONS OF THE ‘ARE YOU SECRETLY DATING KAREN’ NATURE ALRIGHT?
I’m sure he won’t actually answer them but imagine how awkward it could be just for him to SEE THEM. SO GUYS, PLEASE I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH:
And I’m really not in the mood to search on our shipping tags and read posts about how some individuals want to kill us. Yep, you read correctly. Here are the facts:
Everybody over here loves Arthur just as much as we love Matt and Karen. We appreciate the trio’s relationship a great deal and admire each one of them individually as much as we love them together. Do we joke sometimes about Arthur being their dad after it’s been said three different times from the cast themselves that he acts like it (during DWUK, Comic Con 2012 and one of Karen’s interviews. If anyone wants links send us a message)? Yes we do. You don’t have to like it but you also can’t cyberbully us, tag your hate in our ship tags and actually post things about threatening to kill us. Seriously?
As for the matter in hand, someone wrote a rather stupid thing in Arthur’s wikipedia page about how he’s the third wheel in Matt and Karen’s relationship. First of all, I think we will all agree that that was a rather stupid thing to write. However you do NOT know it was even a tumblr user let alone a Matt/Karen shipper and therefore you do not even have evidence or the right in the least bit to unleash hate on all of us. 99,5 % of us are a quiet peaceful fandom and we stay in our tags so let us be.
Also, I can not stress this enough. Just because ONE person does something stupid it does NOT give you the right to blame an entire fandom. We do not spend our time looking all around the internet for anyone who happens to ship the same thing as us and misbehaves and we are NOT responsible for him. We have our rules and the majority of us follow them all the time. I understand if rl shipping or this particular ship in general isn’t your cup of tea but you can NOT post killing threats in our tags just because one stupid person who might not even belong in the matt/karen tumblr shipping fandom wrote something even stupider in another site.
That’s all we’re going to say in this matter and we’re never going to talk about it again. Now someone please go make something pretty to make our tags beautiful again.
If you love writing and reading adorable and squee worthy fics for other adorable people and generally spread the holiday cheer maybe you should head over to the secret santa fic exchange and apply :D
Just a friendly reminder that everybody here completely adores Jenna and we are beyond excited for her era to begin :) Matt seems to think highly of her and how hard she’s trying, Karen obviously likes her a lot since they text regularly and team up, and if she wasn’t amazing, she wouldn’t be the next companion to a legendary show. So yeah yay for Jenna and all we feel about her is love and fuzziness.
So I didn’t get tickets to the screening originally but I was there in the stand-by ticket line, which was let in until after Matt & Karen arrived. I’d just like to say that them laughing and turning to each other while the paparazzi takes photos is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. And his hand is on her waist - ALL THE TIME. I couldn’t see much because I was behind this big silver pillar-thing but I’ll go through my videos and my mom’s videos & pictures tomorrow.
Anyway, so then I got into the screening and the Smillan happened just right away. Matt, Karen and Caroline came out before the episode to say hello/introduce/etc and Caroline went to sit next to Matt and Karen politely spoke up about namecard placement and then Caroline and Karen did a little dance of “Oh it doesn’t matter” “Go ahead” etc (something like that) and then she sat down next to Matt. It was cute, and I was thrilled that it wouldn’t another Q&A with someone in between them.
Then the episode and then the Q&A.
So much secretly marriedness. The zipping up of her dress happened - they were “disgusted” by him having to zip up her dress because he was the only one in the room. GETTING DRESSED TOGETHER, HM?
At one point in the Q&A he also mentioned how they had formed a relationship and such, which was innocent enough but I thought it was interesting that he said relationship and not friendship but I’m probably reading into things.
Then Macbeth occurred (I swear, the continuity of these two) and Karen started running around the theater.
Continuing on with this ridiculously long message, Karen was asked how it was kissing Arthur Darvill and Matt was just extremely interested in her answer and had this face on and it was very great, and then when her answer started to wind down, he prodded with “So yes or no” or something along those lines and his face. I can’t wait for you guys to see it when the nerdist releases it (I can also confirmed it was filmed by an HQ camera. I was sitting a couple rows behind the camera man).
There was another “I can answer this for you moment” (CONTINUITY) and more synchronized movements. They mentioned how they had the same agent and at one point they were just like chatting to each other. Karen’s body and legs was facing towards Matt/Chris the entire time and at a couple points Matt’s body and legs were facing Karen’s too. THERE WAS A LOT OF STARING. Also Karen seemed to be happy to see Matt’s mom.
So that was my extremely long message to the bubble about my night. I’m pretty sure it’s all out of order and stuff cause it was from memory. I’ll try to upload pictures/videos tomorrow because I’m exhausted. :)
