I blew into this world on a leaf.
I’m still blowing. I don’t think I’ll ever land.

thanks for calling people out on hating moffat for stupid reasons
Well, this was… a stupid argument, yes. I’ve already accepted that people hate him for many things, but this was really not well-founded.
Plus, I’ve read everything (and several times) what Moffat had written for DW before he became a show-runner, you can’t get me!
“I’m the thing that monsters have nightmares about.” ―Buffy Summers
…Wow Moffat. Nice going. Congratulations. Such creativity. Wow. Everyone bow down to his outstanding ability to create original things. To make up his own dialogue. Wow.
I am sorry, but you’re not right.
I had to use google (because I’ve never watched Buffy) and found out that this quote was used in Showtime in 2003.
Steven Moffat used the ‘What do monsters have nightmares about? - Me!' quote for the first time NOT in The Girl in the Fireplace (2006), but in his short story called Continuity errors. This short story was published in Decalog 3: Consequences in 1996. So, no Buffy influence. Unless he’s got a time machine.
The only thing you can complain about is that he re-used his own quote. But one can hardly blame him that he wanted to use it on-screen. Because it is a very good quote.
If anybody knows anything about using this or a simillar quote before 1996, message me, I’ll gladly listen to you.
