I'm busy with family still but here's my drive-by reaction post to "Time of the Doctor".

  • My paid account expires soon, which is super weird? I've had a paid account for so long, it feels almost traitorous to not have one. AND MY BLESSED ICONS. On the other hand, I'm not really making enough right now to justify the expense, especially with LJ so quiet. Oh LJ. I miss your heyday. So naturally this made me want to update lj!
  • Life is pretty okay. I like work, mostly, although I need more hours, but at least I have some kind of purpose and the company is really cool. It's interesting working for such a small company because all my previous jobs were with quite big organizations. We went go-karting a couple weeks ago! The CEO drove me home!
  • I've also been driving more and have become much more comfortable with the highway et al. Of course, this is just in time for it to start snowing and totally fuck with my life anyway.
  • On the 13th I'm going to one of those "live" (except, uh, not) screenings of Richard II, with goldy_dollar and a couple other assorted people. I've never gone to see one of these play/theatre broadcasts so that should be interesting. I also need to brush up on my Richard II because at present I have basically no recollection of the play at all, despite studying it. Woops.
  • The 16th is my friend's birthday and I think we're going to a spa? Which... I'm actually not super thrilled about because I'm not a spa person, but it should still be pretty fun. I am more looking forward to the "hang out afterwards with food and wine" part.
  • On the 18th I'm seeing Eddie Izzard with a friend. He's been in town before and I missed him so I'm glad we were on top of things this time. Live comedy is so great and Eddie Izzard is so great, I'm pretty pumped.
  • And then the 23rd is of course the infamous 50th anniversary. Since goldy_dollar has RUTHLESSLY ABANDONED ME in favour of being a lawyer, I'm going with two university friends to the 3D screening here on the Saturday. I was a bit skeptical about spending money on something that is available for free and will likely not be great, but on the other hand I really like seeing things in big busy theatres, so I'm hoping the general air of excitement and fun will help make the whole thing a better experience for me. So I'm excited, more for the experience of seeing two people I haven't seen in ages and being in a big chattering crowd than anything else. Prayer circle the ep doesn't suck as hard as it could.
  • And at some as-yet-undisclosed date... S2 OF THE WALKING DEAD GAME.

    THE MOST ANTICIPATED MEDIA-RELATED EVENT IN MY 2013 LIFE. WHAT DO I NORMALLY DO WITH MY HANDS, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY, OH MY DARLING CLEMENTINE

    If you haven't played The Walking Dead Game I 100% recommend it and it is far more of a storytelling experience than a... zombie action game experience. AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR S2, COME TO MEEEEEE

Title: The Crafting Room
Pairing: Ten/Rose
Length: ~6k
Genre: Uhhh... two parts fluff, one part angst. (Surprise!)
Summary: Rose gets a glimpse of what the Doctor does while she's asleep.
Author's note: Written for stoprobbers for the TARDIS ficathon approximately nine billion years late. Kudos to goldy_dollar for looking it over despite the shocking lack of vampires, socialites or tennis players in it.
Excerpt: Her lips twisted in amusement; whatever she’d imagined the Doctor did while she slept, that wasn’t quite it. “That’s what you’re doing while I’m asleep? Crafting?”

In the time she'd been on board, Rose had grown used to the complexities of the TARDIS.Collapse )

~Name of the Doctor~ spoilers.Collapse )

For those who don't frequent Tumblr and may not have seen it immortalized in gif form yet, they also released this:



Much as I may fear what Moffat has in store, I can't say no to an interview where David Tennant talks about Doctor Who while dressed as the Tenth Doctor on a surprisingly flat hair day.

AHHHHHH TEN BABY I LOVE YOU SO MUCH

More rationally, I am still of the opinion the script for this thing is most likely going to suck. But there are some things that Steven Moffat's writing cannot take from me, and set photos like this are one of them, so I am going to revel in it. Gimme a couple nice ones of Billie to work with too, ty. (If you were wondering, other things on the list: Murray Gold music and press rounds. People I love complimenting each other! While I vomit rainbows!)

In slightly different news, is anyone on this side of the internet watching Broadchurch? Frances accused me of liking it merely because David Tennant is in it, but let me tell you, I have watched many a thing because David Tennant is in it, and that is really not a guarantee of my praise. Also, Broadchurch is by Chibnall, so admitting I am loving it means admitting Chris Chibnall wrote something good, and I think you can all appreciate what an effort that is for me.

But it is good! I got super into it! It's a nice balance of decent drama and total hilarity (unintentional most of the time) that keeps me entertained through every episode, which is basically all I want from TV. I really love Ellie, feel quite awful for Beth, and for once I am actually super fond of David Tennant's character, even if (naturally) I express that fondness with sheer unadulterated mockery.

Anyway consider this long endorsement my way of saying that if you were considering watching it but unsure, go for it. And if you are watching, come talk to me. Theories! Thoughts! etc! Spoilers through ep 7.Collapse )

Greetings internet! I'm at my aunt's house now which is in the 21st century, so I have wifi and I figured while everyone is showering and stuff I would check in. I had a good Christmas, very unlike other Christmases I've had. It was nice to see all my cousins at once, which basically never happens.

My aunt's house has a satellite, so I ended up recruiting the TV in the basement to watch the DW Christmas special. My cousin and her boyfriend joined me, and since neither of them have seen Doctor Who before, it involved a lot of explaining. Anyway, I saw the ep at least. Spoilers.Collapse )

BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY rose_dawson! I essentially had time to copy/paste this post from Tumblr and now I have to go be social but I hope your day is decent.

Sometimes I feel like I have things to talk about, but I'm trying to think of what they are right now and coming up blank. So let's just barrel through this:

  • I'm still unemployed and stuff. I'm obviously not going to find a job until the new year at this point, so... whatever I guess. No1curr about my quarterlife crisis, moving on.
  • There's some ship battle poll thing going on and the finals has Doctor/Rose against ~Klaine~. I don't think Doctor/Rose will win at this point but if you've ever wanted to vote against Glee in something (and I know you have) here is your opportunity.
  • BBC One is making "The Casual Vacancy" into a TV series! I am excited because I am part of the apparently small portion of the internet that liked Casual Vacancy. Plus with it being BBC there's bound to be SOME hilarious British Actor Bingo, amirite? I don't know what they mean by "series" -- I assume they mean miniseries, or like, 2 seasons with a total of 10 episodes max.
  • We're going to visit family for Christmas and it is a NIGHTMARE of organization. I think we finally sorted it out and it means I'll be home for my birthday, which is nice. Here's hoping I am less grumpy about it than I was on my last birthday.
  • If anyone out there is as bored and unfulfilled as I am, I recommend the Larry tag on Tumblr because ain't nothin' funnier than the perfect storm that is RPF tinhatters, tweens and Taylor Swift.


Here, look at the deformed chocolate my aunt gave me:
