All right, so as of now, there will be no more crossposting to LJ. One of these days, I will go through my LJ and delete all my extremely personal crap. Everything else will stay up. All my content has been imported to DW, so I'm not losing anything. I feel good about this way of handling it, so yay. Thanks to everyone who gave input!

I've been talking to [personal profile] tinny about icons, and because I was stuck on my fic, and quite enjoyed the new Doctor Who episode, I made some 10x01 icons.

Under the cut. )

Crit, feedback, comments, all welcome!

Has anyone been watching Line of Duty? I'm mostly watching it for Paul Higgins, who played Jamie on The Thick of It. His English accent is painful. He's trying so hard, but as someone on my dash on Tumblr said, it's like watching undercover Jamie acting like he imagines Englishmen act. His character on Line of Duty is an UTTER CREEP, though, so I'm having some discomfiting dissonance with how much I love Jamie and how much I hate ... I think his name is Hilton? ACC Hilton. Blech.

Thandie Newton is playing the lead, though, and she's great. I had a huge crush on her back when she was playing Dr. Carter's girlfriend on ER. Her character on Line of Duty is a bit shady, but man, I know where my sympathies lie. Everyone else on that show is even more of a creep. Oh, gritty British crime shows.

I Did Not Expect This

The GF and I just marathoned the entirety of Doctor Who season 9 today, and I am so invested. SO INVESTED. How did this happen? Did they give Moffat a brain transplant? Did someone ghostwrite all of his episodes? HOW? WHAT? I don't understand but I certainly approve!

Spoilers under the cut. )

I'm very much looking forward to meeting the new companion. She seems fun! Man, the new season is coming out soon, and I'm actually excited. Such a strange feeling to be getting back into this show after so long ...

Gallifreyan Script, Thanksgiving, Yuletide

Long time no update. I'm still around. I've been playing with tumblr a lot--I know, I know. I'm joining the legions abandoning LJ for more hipster-y pastures. I should try to update LJ more, but I don't really have a specific fandom at the moment, so I'm sort of disconnected from LJ, since I don't have anything to write fic for. I would vid, but I don't have my desktop PC with me at the moment. Also, that PC needs upgrading so badly. Anyway, this is why I'm playing with tumblr, not LJ. I have little fannish content to offer at the moment.

That said, I did make some Gallifreyan script images. Greencrook on tumblr came up with a Gallifreyan dictionary, and it's a lot of fun to take the basics that she's developed and fill in the blanks to create images of quotes.

Three quote images under the cut. )

Other than that, I'm still trying to find a job. Nothing new on that front. I don't know if I'm going to do Christmas cards this year. If anyone wants to send me a card, don't send it to the Southampton address; I don't live there anymore. Send it to my old address in Germany--if you don't know it, ping me and I'll let you know.

Yuletide! Anyone doing Yuletide on the reading list? I'm torn. I did it last year, and had a lot of fun writing for it, but the fic I received was not really what I'd been hoping for. And I don't really have any fandoms I'd want to request for or am desperate to read fic in, this year. The fic I wrote last year was based on something that I had sitting on my hard-drive, half-written--I don't have anything like that this year, so I'd have to start from scratch. But it's only 1,000 words. I could probably do 1,000 words? And I'd love to be forced to write something. Torn! I will decide eventually.

I will have a Jasper on Thanksgiving. :3 We found a cheap flight, so she's coming over from the morning of the 24th until the afternoon of the 27th. It'll be her, [personal profile] earlwyn, [livejournal.com profile] hobbits_feet and myself. There won't be turkey, but there will be chicken. And a fuck-ton of other food. And probably midori, because we're sad, sad fangirls. I'm looking forward to it.

So. How is everyone?

I guess I should post a Doctor Who reaction post, shouldn't I? I don't . . . really have one. Have a copy and pasted log under the cut.

As much of a reaction as I can manage. Some spoilers. )

Doubt I'm gonna be watching in fall. I WANT MIRACLE DAY. I WANT IT NOW. Really, I'm with [livejournal.com profile] shinyopals and this macro.

WTF

teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. ([dw] master asking for it)
I just watched the 2011 Doctor Who Comic Relief clip.

. . . I cannot believe what I just watched. Literally, I cannot. Seriously, guys, please take the show away from Moffat. Send him to the US and make him work for Fox. Make him be an executive on Supernatural, he'd be good at that. I'll cover the travel expenses, no problem. Just . . . make him go away?

I am quite seriously considering not watching the next season, after this. If Gaiman hadn't written one of the episodes, I'd probably not bother. I might just watch his episode.

Sad News

Seen on the f-list as well as several news sites . . .



Nicholas Courtney has died. Sorry to hear it. The Brig has always been one of my favorite Classic companions. I should watch more of his episodes. Maybe I'll do that now.

Doctor Who Rewatch Comm

So, guys. [livejournal.com profile] dontwanttogo, Doctor Who RTD era rewatch comm. I'm starting it up again, starting from Rise of the Cybermen next Saturday, January 29. Anyone who'd like to participate, either on a weekly basis or just now and again, please make sure you're watching [livejournal.com profile] dontwanttogo. I'll post more about the specific schedule on the comm.

See you there! (Oh, and if you didn't participate in the first part of the rewatch, you're more than welcome to join now. :) )

ETA: Now with a link to the schedule post on the comm.

Happy Holidays!

I just spent a very relaxing, quiet Christmas Day with Jasper's family. It was nice. I got a lot of presents, which I totally did not expect. Nice presents, too--a shirt and a scarf and two hats and a book and money. Jasper's family is extremely generous. I do like them a lot.

I gave Jasper's mother a resurrection plant, which I think she appreciated. I'm glad. I don't often find gifts that are "right" for people--I'm not good at picking gifts. But I think that one worked well.

I had loads of food, which was delicious, I played with the dogs, which was fun, I started knitting a scarf, which was surprising--I don't usually knit, or enjoy knitting, but Jasper and I ended up in a crafts store, and I was like . . . I shall randomly buy needles and yarn. So now I have 1.5 feet of scarf. I'll see how that'll turn out. Anyway. Very quiet, very pleasant day.

Yuletide went live, too, but I haven't had a chance yet to read my fic. It is Bibleslash! Bibleslash makes me happy. I'll read it either tonight or tomorrow.

And now I will post this, because it's sort of a tradition on my journal by now.



And happy holidays/happy weekend to anyone who doesn't celebrate Christmas.

Oh, and I haven't seen the Doctor Who special yet. I'll watch it . . . later? Or tomorrow. I'll see.

Doctor Who Rewatch

So I changed my layout on LJ: opens in a new tab. Not sure why; I just felt like it. It's non-fannish! Weeeird.

I remembered [livejournal.com profile] dontwanttogo the other day. Doctor Who rewatch! We managed to get up to Girl in the Fireplace and then stopped. Who's interested in picking that up again? Or, you know, joining in--I've added a few new people to the f-list since then; you're all more than welcome to join. We usually watched an episode in AIM groupchat each Saturday 10 pm GMT--you can check here what time that is where you are. Or you can watch on your own without joining the groupchat and then talk about the episode in a post to the comm. Either works.

Anyone who's interested, please drop me a comment. :)

Plus, have some random snow pictures of my backyard. )

Avoiding Work.

I'm supposed to be writing a script. So of course, I'm filling out a meme instead.

Seventeen opinions on Doctor Who. Stolen from hobbit_feets. )

I'm . . . alright? Busy. Senior year is busy. I did a week of work experience with a local independent TV company last week, and am deciding that I really would love to work in this business. It's silly. You spend your days trawling the internet trying to find ways of acquiring a sawn-off shotgun for cheap, and everyone takes it dead seriously. Because dammit, that shotgun is the most important prop in that reconstruction, and it might actually be in focus for ten seconds. So it's gotta be a good one. But we have no budget, so try to get it for free. It's awesome.

Happy Halloween! Not that I celebrate Halloween, but I suppose a few people on the f-list probably do? If not, just, you know. Happy 31st of October. How is everyone?

Jobs!

I HAVE A JOB THAT GIVES ME FREE COFFEE WHENEVER I WANT IT.

I think that's really all I've ever wanted out of a part-time employment. Free coffee. And a free lunch muffin. Om nom nom. I'm also making over £100 a week--at least at the moment, when there is no uni--which means that my monthly budget just more than doubled. Jobs. Are nice.

Watch me get fired after my first week because I'm going to have to tell them that I have a pre-booked States-side holiday from Dec 11 until Jan 2. >_>

Also, I'm getting old. I woke up this morning feeling like utter crap. As in, seriously. I was dizzy and nauseous and little black spots kept dancing across my vision. NO MORE ROLE PLAYING UNTIL 5:30 AM WHEN I HAVE TO GET UP AT 9. She said and rp'ed until 6 instead. (The utter-crap-feeling may have partially been time-of-the-month induced, though. And I'm feeling fine now; was actually feeling fine by the time I arrived at work. Getting up in the morning. Is hard.)

I have nothing of interest to share? Except this. OMG IT IS FULL OF BABY ANIMAL PICTURES. D'awwww.

(And a note to Mr Gaiman. Dear Mr Gaiman, I appreciate you as a decent writer, exceptional blogger and knowledgeable internet-user, as well as a fellow Who geek. In that sense, please don't take it the wrong way if I tell you that you spelling Doctor Who as Dr Who makes me want to stab puppies. Sincerely and all of that, someone who is only watching the next series because it's got a Gaiman episode.)

Hello livejournal. I am still alive. Still working. Only 10 more working days to get through, including today. Wooh!

Bought my ticket for Christmas. I will be in the US, Washington DC area, from December 11 until January 2. I'm not flying via New York this time, sadly (sorry, [livejournal.com profile] onceforluck!), but directly into DC. I am still thinking about whether or not to buy tickets for September. The decision, it is a hard one.

I've also been rereading Sherlock Holmes short stories, and my brain insists I should write a Holmes/Who crossover, written in Sherlock Holmes short story style with Watson narrating, where Ten visits Holmes to consult him on a case.
