Reinette, Madame de Pompadour
I am Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour. My family and friends refer to me as "Reinette". I was mistress to his royal majesty, King Louis XV, his maitress en titre.

Hello dearie. I should have come to you with this sooner but I just wanted you to know guardian-of-a-timelord has said a lot of bad things about people on Skype to me and frankly I am sick of hearing it. You're one of those people. She's said things about your ship before with timelordcurse (frankly I think it's just because she's jealous but what do I know) and how your character is a whore for being with him and I forgot the other user name. It was some Valeyard character she mentioned.

//I really can’t be bothered by this tbh. I appreciate being told, but she wasn’t part of my storylines and I never spoke to her ooc. The fact that she passes judgement on my character just shows the ignorance and slut shaming that goes on in our society. Polyamorous relationships exist and make up a large percentage of the world. They have lower divorce rates than our country and are comprised of consenting adults (ignoring the ones that the media is always reporting about.)

It is sad that someone feels the need to viciously attack another when they have never really spoken to them or to attack their medium in an effort to boost themselves up. If she feels the need to do so, then fine, I’m a safe enough target because I simply do not care.

The fact is, she gets her information wrong about my character, passes judgement without even bothering to know the basic details. Reinette is only involved with the Doctor. The Valeyard plot lines were retconned due to ooc matters. But somehow Reinette is still a whore.

Never mind that to be a whore, you have to be paid money for sexual services, but we’ll just ignore that technicality. She’s using a derogatory name in an effort to slut shame, never minding that it takes two people (sometimes more) to make up a relationship.

And that brings us to the final issue with this. Because you are right, it is due to jealousy and irritation for not being involved with a particular person. In the end, if someone doesn’t want to ship with you, you respect that decision. Timelordcurse said no, not because of Reinette, but because he did not want to ship with another character. It has nothing to do with me, with my character, it is his choice. He has reasons written out and fully stated, all well based on character choices, not ooc ones. But rather than allow this matter to remain ic, we have to start attacking everyone involved with his character.

It’s very sad that someone is invested in a character relationship, they will lash out when they don’t get what they want. Even towards people they don’t know or talk to.

So again, thank you for telling me. In the end, it’s whatever. I never really rped with her before, I don’t intend to now. Once this is posted, I will go back to forgetting that she exists, because neither she nor this issue are invested at all in my life.

Sigma sighed. “Oh, all right, but only if I can have my favourite meal! Otherwise, I’m going to turn right back around and go to my room.” He gestured what he planned to do with his hands.

With that bit settled, the Doctor led the kids to the school room and waited until they were sitting down before he found a seat crossed leg on the desk. He felt most comfortable there. “Right! Considering the fact we’re nearing the end of the holiday period…well, at least for two of you…” He looked over at Marie and Sigma. They were nearly academy age. “I think we should do an exercise to implement everything we’ve learned so far. How does that sound?”

Though the doctor hoped for excitement, when the kids groaned he wasn’t too surprised. “Oh, come on! I promise this will be fun.” He stuck his hands in his pockets and pulled out several small pieces of paper. “Our last lesson was on the foundation of the planet so we can start there. Let’s assume that instead of Chrisus, Terminus, and Sterben it was all eight of us starting this planet. Each of us has special skills and one added weakness, which we will choose at random by deciding on two numbers.”

He held up the pieces of paper to show they had numbers on them. “Besides the given weaknesses, everything you already are as a person stays the same, including mixed breed status, health, species, personality, sterility and so on. And to make things more interesting…only four out of the eight of us can start the planet. Let’s say…the other four falls into a black hole or something, something like they just aren’t planet foundation material. In the discussion to plea your case why they should be among the four chosen I want you to give examples of things you’ve learned already. For example, using established history to prove why said events would mimic in this scenario if the person is chosen ORR use scientific examples to explain your reasoning. Things along that line and mum can join in with examples of things she learned upon earth. Everyone understand?”

He waited to see if the kids understood before turning his attention to Reinette. “We’ll let you go first since it’s your first time here. Pick two numbers between one and eight but they can’t be the same number.”

"I am allowed to play as well?" Reinette gave a sassy smile, looking at the children more for permission. She took a seat with them at the table, placing Jean in her lap as she brushed his hair from his face. Marie looked up at her mother expectantly, but let Reinette choose her numbers.

"Two numbers? Then I shall choose 3 and 2." She said, finally coming to the decision.
