I. So I've been rewatching s1 with firstofoct right? And sometimes spud14. We just finished Aliens of London/WW3 last night. Oh, show. I forgot how genuinely adorable and friendly Rose is! I mean, not forgot, but... idk, it sure is different from how the show is these days. And Nine! I always forget how much I like Nine until I actually sit down and watch some Nine. You can tell the show hasn't really found its tone or style yet and Mickey and Jackie are just starting to be fleshed out, but d'aww. Also, lol forever @ the CGI. So great. What's with the music, though? With some exceptions -- for example, O HAI, Doomsday song in "Rose" -- the episode action-y music is like, awful. I think I've heard that they didn't start using an actual orchestra until maybe s2? I guess that could be part of it. But right now I am loling a bit. Murray Gold, you can do better.

II. Another top 5 for all of you! goldy_dollar asked for Top five times Billie Piper cried so well that you wanted to rip out your own heart and stamp on it.

I hope you appreciate that these are not all from Doctor Who. That made it a challenge.Collapse )

1. Look at my shiny new moodtheme! Season 4 of Secret Diary may have been disappointing in most aspects, but it was not disappointing in terms of Billie Piper's facial expressions. I don't even usually use moods but I might start trying to remember just to use the moodtheme.

2. The new banner on my friends only page:



COMPANIONS ARE PLAYING POKER, your argument is invalid.

Not but really how cute is this art. Credit to the artist, who was very gracious when I asked to use it for my own selfish purposes.

Okay it is like 2am, now that I have accomplished these two truly important things it is time for me to go to bed. I will leave you with this gif of David Tennant jumping on a couch:

As a result of my poll I decided to watch the last 3-ish minutes of Secret Diary of a Call Girl 4x08. Whether or not I go back to watch the rest of the season remains to be seen.

Spoilers obviously.Collapse )

So as I have mentioned, I totally flounced from s4 of Secret Diary after 4x03 and haven't watched since. Now that the show is wrapped up and I am sure some of you have seen it all, I want your help DECIDING MY FATE.


Poll #1722893 secret diary what have you become

Should I watch the rest of series 4?

Yes, because it was good.
1(4.2%)
Yes, because it was okay.
0(0.0%)
Yes, because Billie Piper is hot.
8(33.3%)
Just skip to 4x08
8(33.3%)
No, you are happier just assuming it ended after s3 and Belle and Bambi eventually ran away together.
7(29.2%)


Note that I would not like to actually be spoiled for the proceedings before I make my decision, even though I am pretty sure I already am spoiled because the internet doesn't understand lj-cuts.

Secondly, Community referenced Doctor Who on Thursday and it was magical. My favourite American show referencing my favourite British show! Awesome. Also, The Office has been good lately, it is too bad they won't go out on this high note.

I am back at school ugh. I am pretty sure I had something else to say but now I cannot remember it so time for that icon meme!Collapse )

Anyway, I guess if you want me to pick six of yours you can comment and I will.

Also, what's this I hear about series 6 not starting until Easter? EASTER IS LIKE THE 24TH OF APRIL OR WHATEVER. Ugh BBC. Why are you the way that you are. How am I supposed to spend the rest of my April? STUDYING FOR EXAMS? Pshhhh.

ETA: OH I remember what I was going to post. I was going to promote d_r_meta, a ~shiny new discussion comm centered around (duh) Doctor/Rose with weekly discussion points etc. Your mods are myself, firstofoct, shinyopals, mrv3000 and fauxkaren. So if you like Doctor/Rose and also like telling the internet how right you are, you should go join.

Stolen from basically everyone at this point, the ~2010 fandom meme~

1. Your main fandom of the year: Doctor Who. SURPRISE.

2. Your favorite film this year: Toy Story 3, tbqh. Everything else I basically just moderately enjoyed. Toy Story 3 made me cry like three times.

3. Your favorite book this year: Ummm the Pullman books, I don't know which one in particular. Pullman is sort of an interesting writer and I think I enjoyed his stuff more now than I would have as a kid, I think I would have found it boring as a kid. But as a ~scholar of English literature~ I enjoyed the ideas/etc. I liked Tiger in the Well a lot even if it was OOTP-levels of frustrating to read. HDM was good too.

4. Your favorite album or song this year: The "Lungs" album by Florence + the Machine. Pretty much every song on there was my favourite song for a portion of this year. Right now I am rocking out to Howl.



I bet it is on a billion Rose Tyler fanmixes and if it is not it should be.

5. Your favorite TV show this year: Well this kind of goes along with my favourite fandom, doesn't it. But in terms of shows I ~discovered~ this year hmmm, probably Community. It is like a comedy tailor-made for me! I also really liked Secret Diary and Misfits, though. So 3/4 for you, Britain.

6. Your favorite LJ community this year: Is it bad to just say a bunch of comms I mod? OH WELL. starwhales is fab.

7. Your best new fandom discovery of the year: lol I don't even know what this means. I didn't really... discover a new fandom? I... am glad I started watching Community/Secret Diary/Misfits?

8. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year: Omg both HIMYM and The Office were so bad at the beginning of this year/the end of their last season. They've both sort of picked themselves up again in the subsequent seasons, but still. Turning away in shame.

9. Your TV boyfriend of the year:


10. Your TV girlfriend of the year: I guess this is supposed to be a character from 2010 eh? Or from a show I watched in 2010? W/e I will go with Hannah Baxter. She is self-described as not a very good girlfriend but I am sure we can work something out.



When does this show come back? That must be soon right? Yess.

11. Your biggest squee moment of the year: LOL probably watching EOT on New Year's. That totally counts for all of 2010 okay.

12. Your most missed old fandom: lol I only have one old fandom. BUT I was feeling pretty nostalgic for Harry Potter this summer, while reading MRHP. I reread Deathly Hallows and read a Lily/James fic yesterday and everything. My love for Harry Potter is ancient and forever.

13. Your fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? I am not really eying any fandom with interest. I am waiting for Katniss Everdeen to be cast so I can nom popcorn gifs and watch the wank like I did back in the day with Robert Pattinson? I might watch the rest of Vampire Diaries so I know what everyone is talking about but I sense it will be another Merlin for me. I have also given passing consideration to Being Human anddd... I'm pretty sure there was another show but it's since slipped my mind.

14. Your biggest anticipation of the New Year: I am always excited for more Doctor Who. Also Secret Diary (though omg no Bambi, crying forever) and I guess Misfits when it finally returns in a year f u Britain.

WELL that was fun.

I. Went to a hockey game last night with my dad and goldy_dollar. It was shameful. But I am posting this anyway because when I got home and talked to bazcat89 and said ‘after the hockey game we went out for dessert’ her reply was ‘OMG YOU ACTUALLY WENT TO A HOCKEY GAME LIRL LIRL LIRL OMG’ so I guess I don’t document my hockey love enough or something? SO HERE IT IS.

It is not getting much love from me at the moment though. Omg Sens, only you would give Price a shutout.

II. lol omg:


Credit to thatgoldenrule.

Also lol, courtesy of miss_mishi but IDK who originally made it:



Doctor Who/Hyperbole & a Half OTP.

III. So, I’m pretty bored, but I don’t really have anything to post about. So I think I am going to continue that 30 Women Meme.

GIRLCRUSH EDITION.Collapse )

I. So we are all in agreement, right? No Facebooking/Twittering of each other's posts? Good.

II. I am off to a cottage tomorrow morning! Well, I say "cottage", but supposedly it is like three times the size of my house. I will take pictures. Anyway, it also means as of tomorrow I will be gone from the internet until Monday evening. I know, it will be hard.

III. I finished s1 of Secret Diary last night! Spoilers I guess.Collapse )

IV. Doing my modly duty:



It is your basic comment ficathon and it is running for the next couple weeks.

I have such a dumb relationship with ficathons and fests. Allow me to share.

Step 1 - The Ficathon/Fest/Whatever is announced/I find out about it

Thought process: "omg this will be so great I will write ALL THE FICS!!!"

Final action: Sign up for way more than you can deliver and/or stalk the post eagerly and tell all your friends about the AWESOME FICS you are TOTALLY GOING TO WRITE for the AWESOME FICATHON

Step 2 - The Ficathon Opens and Accepts Prompts

Thought process: "OMG OMG OMG... I don't have any prompts, I must jealously guard any good fic ideas I have so that I can write them."

Final action: Post no prompts and resign yourself to answering others'.

Step 3 - Fic Posting Begins

Thought process: "OMG!!! ...omg I can't write any of these. This prompt is too long, this prompt is too short, and this porridge is too cold. Why do all the prompts suck? Why do I suck? OMG why can't I write anything? OMG FICATHON I HATE YOU!"

Final action: Write maybe 200 words of fic for one prompt; hate all 200; flounce and write nothing while regarding the ficathon and the successful authors with resentment

Step 4 - The Ficathon Ends

Thought process: "Well that sucked for me. Hmmm. Maybe by the next one I will be better at writing prompts!"

Final action: repeat steps 1-4
