dw :: rose :: happy new year

"I bet you're gonna have a really great year!"

I was all like 'hmm, maybe I should do that meme I've done every year at New Year's!" And I went to my old entries to find it and LOL apparently I didn't do it last year after all. Oops? But Collapse )

Well that was fun.

When I was looking through last year's post to try and find this meme, I saw that my New Year's Eve post included a video of polar bears narrated by David Tennant. This year I bring you AMAZING STINGRAYS:

10/10 for the one that does a perfect backflip.
hp :: honeybadger don't give a shit

i'm not tagging this for the meme so NO HINTS 4 U

First, a comment of utmost importance directed in the general direction of Tumblr but also fandom at large:

Donna Noble is totally a Hufflepuff, guys. Red hair does not automatically put you in Gryffindor. Donna is brave when necessary because that is a basic requirement of all companions, but she does not get off on danger and excitement like Rose Tyler or Amy Pond. Donna would rather sunbathe by the pool than go see a stupid waterfall. Plz adjust all Sorting picspams accordingly, ty.

And before you ask the answer is YES this is very srs bsnss.

Second, I'm still doing the top 5 meme, but in the meantime, I decided to do the ship meme floating around the internet:

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.

I also tried to make it hard. I'm not screening comments or anything so just use the honour system you guys~.

dw :: doctordonna :: what is this place?

and then i watched hamlet for the second weekend in a row

I. One of the funniest texts I have ever received:
Actually Im pretty wasted but that doesnt make u less beautiful


II. I feel like the existence of Tumblr results in far fewer people making pretty icons these days. I can see why, I guess, if you made graphics it might be more rewarding to get a zillion notes on a gif than half a dozen comments on eigthty icons. BUT WHERE ARE MY INSPECTOR SPACETIME ICONS, INTERNET? Conform to my needs!

III. Tay, Hannah and I learned that Eccleston's character in GI Joe is Scottish and decided to investigate immediately. Some kind person had compiled all his scenes so we only had to watch 14 minutes of GI Joe and not 2 hours, which was worth it tbh.

IV. INTERNET, YOU SO BORING ON SUNDAYS. I guess there is Misfits later. Not sure how I feel about this season, although referring to the two Rudys as Ten and Eleven is providing me entertainment.

V. Frances told me to do the top 5 meme so I am doing it:

Give me a list of fandomy top 5 things to do, you know, top 5 episodes or whatever you've all done this meme before and I am just making up the description right now on the fly.

VI. This post is boring, so have a gif:

dw :: rose :: you were fantastic

"what is that noise?" "oh, just your wife killing herself."

I. I saw two plays in the last two days! Sometimes I watch things even though there are no Doctor Who cast in it, I swear. The first was a romcom called Salt Water Moon and is by some "famous" Canadian playwright. I guess I shouldn't put quotations around famous, given that I can name like, 3 playwrights and two of them have been dead for like four hundred years, so maybe he is famous I guess. Anyway, it was a two-person show about two Newfoundlanders in love~ in the 1920s. They both tried to do the Newfoundland accent, which LOL. It started off slow but I got into it as it picked up. At one point the guy is attempting to make the girl jealous by boasting about all the girls he's dated since her, and she doesn't believe him and is all "PFT YEAH RIGHT WHAT ARE THERE NAMES?" and he's like "HER NAME WAS ROSE" and I loled louder than anyone else and for different reasons.

The second was ~the Scottish Play~ at the other university in town. It was... what you would expect from a college Shakespeare production, with varying degrees of talent within the cast. Macbeth himself was easily the best (and pretty attractive ngl). Lady Macbeth was decent. MacDuff was pretty good. Everyone else... lol. Essentially there was a lot more laughing than one can usually expect from a performance of Macbeth. On the bright side, none of them tried Scottish accents, which I am counting as a win.

II. The friend I saw Macbeth with is one of my few non-internet friends who watches Doctor Who, and hanging out with her is always great because she validates my fandom opinions even though she's not in fandom. We had an animated discussion over dinner about how nonsensical 6x13 was, probably to the wonderment of everyone else at the Quiznos.

IV. I have to write a children's story for my Children's Lit class. On one hand this is exciting, because it'll be the most creative writing I've ever done for my university degree. On the other hand, jfc I can barely write fic anymore, let alone something original, so AHHHHHHHH. I keep waiting for some kind of magical inspiration to strike. It has not.

I miss writing, though. SO I AM GOING TO DO ONE OF THOSE PROMPT MEMES. Except that like I don't actually know any so I'm just going to make some up. Isn't one of them, like, give me the title of a fic and the pairings/characters and I will write a sample of it? SURE, TRY THAT. Or just give me a standard prompt or quote or whatever IDK, just try and give me ideas and I will try and write something. You all know what I am and am not likely to write so no Michelle this will probably not be the day you convince me to write Ianto/Sherlock.

V. Lastly, ALL THAT SOCIALIZING + a Halloween party tomorrow means I'm probably just going to sit home tonight and watch TV. Fuck yeah. On my list are Midnight and Waters of Mars so if anyone wants in on that action let me know.

Anyway, have a gif from the best deleted scene ever:

lol Ten and Martha
sd :: always one foot on the ground


LJ ARE YOU WORKING? omg never leave me again. Out of boredom I was driven to the bitter arms of Tumblr and it is not the same. So many people being wrong, so little ability to have an actual discussion. Basically time I spend on Tumblr is like

Step 1: Search for a more generic tag like 'doctor who'
Step 2: "Like" a couple graphics that I will never be able to do anything with but which are pretty
Step 3: Encounter wrong opinions
Step 4: Become filled with futile, impotent rage
Step 5: Flounce to a more specific character and/or actor tag
Step 6: Repeat Step 2
Step 7: Encounter something somehow relating to Much Ado About Nothing
Step 8: Brain temporarily overloads on !!!!!!!!!!!
Step 9: Repeat steps 1-8

Anyway, I have some things I might want to post about later when I am more confident in lj's abilities, mostly boring-to-anyone-but-me trip stuff because I leave innnn 29 days now! It's possible I've started a post-it note countdown at work.

In the meantime though, I'm doing that meme floating around where I post quotes from 13 things I ship and YOU GET TO GUESS what they are. Everyone loves guessing games, right? Because I am not much of a shipper I am using the word "ship" rather loosely. I'm not going to screen comments so uh honour system u guise.

dw :: ten :: aloha

montreal, game of thrones + top 5 bromances

I. I spent Canada Day with sweetcherrytree! Finally! The world did not implode in a paradox so possibly we have Steven Moffat to thank. Canada Day in Quebec is hilarious to me, because being both Ontarian and from the nation's capital I am used to UNENDING PATRIOTISM and a SEA OF RED AND WHITE but lol that is not how Quebec rolls. There were lots of bouncy castles for children (PRINCESS PALACE for girls and CREEPY MEAN DOG THING for boys, thanks world) and someone gave me a little paper flag and then Kelly and I celebrated with a Canada Day nap because it was hot as balls. There was this one point when we were waiting for the fireworks when the DJ was having technical difficulty and to pass the time he was like LET'S SING O CANADA!! and the crowd made it through one line before abandoning ship.

Kelly also provided me a Snuggie to sleep in which lol is the first time I have used a Snuggie. They are hilarious. It is like you are a sleepy wizard.

II. At Kelly's I also saw the first four episodes of Game of Thrones, and since I've come home I've caught up to episode 6. I'll probably make a more complete post when I finish the season but here are some basic thoughts. Collapse )

III. Lastly, more meme: Collapse )
