Dude, Peter Capaldi totally refused to flirt with Clara in the new series.
Damn, I’m so ready for this.
In that same article he states that he’s going to make the story line less confusing and over the top and focus on the plot. I think I’m in love.
Drawing I did for a mix!
I don’t post art on here too often, whoops :<

You are on your way from the LOCAL LIBRARY to the U-HAUL rental center to rent a moving van when you are suddenly confronted by a TEMPLAR KNIGHT. He wields his BROADSWORD threateningly, expressing through his firm body language that he shows no interest in letting you pass. What is your course of action?
You turn and walk away from the LOCAL LIBRARY, abandoning your mission to rent a moving van from the U-HAUL rental center. The TEMPLAR KNIGHT does not pursue you; as you make some distance from him, you can hear him sheathing his BROADSWORD back into its scabbard. You get home, but you never do rent a U-Haul van and have to give away all of your belongings in your old apartment before you move into your new apartment, leaving you eternally bitter and unhappy…
Grell literally calls herself a woman and refers to herself with she pronouns but the fandom still won’t admit that she’s a trans girl because the story takes place in 1889. Like the protagonist is a 13 year-old crossdressing boy with a demon for a servant One of the story archs involves Ciel infiltrating a circus run by a pedophile with severe body dysmorphia do you seriously want to pull “historical accuracy” card?
Historian here, and I actually have something interesting to add: there were transgender individuals in the 19th century, just as there have always been transgender individuals throughout history. These people didn’t just magically ‘start existing’ at any point in time - people of all sorts have always been here, but often aren’t validated by society until much later.
Take, for example, Mary Mudge, who passed away in 1889, the same year Kuroshitsuji takes place:
Mary Mudge, however, never sought the limelight. Her ‘secret’ only emerged after her death, aged 85, in the market town of Tavistock, Devon, the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake.
Reynold’s Newspaper reported on March 31, 1889:
A MAN EIGHTY FIVE YEARS IN WOMAN’S CLOTHES
There has just died in Tavistock Workhouse an old person eighty five years of age, who was known to the authorities as Mary Mudge, and until some years ago kept a small dairy in that town. On the body being prepared for burial, it was discovered to be that of a man, although previously no suspicion had been entertained as to the sex of Miss Mudge, as deceased had long been called, and had all outward appearance of a woman. No cause has been assigned for the disguise.
Further details were given in The Bury and Norwich Post:
Not even the oldest inhabitant had any recollection of Mary’s childhood and there is no registration to be found. The earliest recollection of her in the village is a full grown young woman, when she was then noticeable for her particularly large size. ‘That girl ought to have been a boy’ seems to have ben a common saying at the time. ‘She seemed a very quiet retiring sort,’ said the old villager. ‘We never suspected anything. I was never so struck in my life as when I heard of it after her death.’ Nobody seemed to have known much about Mary. She had lived by herself since her sister’s death, shut up in her lonely house. The two or three cows supplied her bodily needs, and the village doctor does not remember ever giving her medicine; but sickness entered her house four years ago and found Mary Mudge alone in her lonely dwelling. She was recommended to the union infirmary where she entered in July 1885, and has since remained until her death.
Census records confirm Mudge was a real individual and did in fact exist and live in the town. This isn’t made up. Surely, too, Mudge is only one of many, many transgender Victorians - and indeed, one of many transgender individuals in human history.
So, in fact, Grell’s gender identity is perfectly plausible, unlike many other elements of the series.
