Just in case the last person who hasn't seen this video happens to be on my friends-list... here, have a video of most of the cast and crew of RTD-era Doctor Who having a blast to the tune of The Proclaimers' "500 Miles."

You have to watch at least far enough to see the look of pure glee on David Tennant's face as he goes through a bit with the actual Proclaimers. I hadn't really realized how much I missed Tennant until I saw that "LOOK WHAT I'M DOING, MY LIFE IS AWESOME!!!" face again. ♥ Also look out for Timothy Dalton being quite pleased about life, an Ood proving to be quite a good dancer, and Lis Sladen appearing to check her moves against Tennant's. And dancing baby Adipose(s?). Bless. Nice way to start the day.

On the subject of Doctor Who, I have determined that I simply don't care enough anymore. This may change in the future, but for the moment... I just don't give a damn. It has turned out that I would rather watch Mad Men (quite a good show, as it turns out, and not only because Christina Hendricks is damned sexy and appears to be making a good go at taking over the world via a secretarial gig at a 1960s ad agency) and continue to write vastly extensive fan-fiction for a slightly dodgy '90s sci-fi than go to the effort of tracking down the latest episode of Doctor Who.

I'm not sure what the hell went wrong. And it feels very awkward, because I know that a couple of my co-workers are going to be very excited tomorrow about asking me if I've seen the latest episode, and I feel a bit weird about saying "No, and I don't really have any immediate plans to do so." So I'm writing this entry to try to see if I can't bring myself to some sort of understanding of what's going on in my head, as regards this show.

My feelings on Doctor Who, let me show you them. Contains spoilers (big surprise) )

Also, I have a headache and wish my fall allergies would go exterminate themselves. Nrgh. Going back now to the happy world of fic-writing. And possibly of having a late lunch, so that I'm not starving in a few hours when I go to make dinner.
rivendellrose: (he's waiting)


...Srsly, so many wonderful things happened in this episode, including a million things I've been waiting a million years to see.♥ But mostly... mostly THAT. SO HAPPY.♥♥♥

Dear show, I am so glad you are back. After the last few weeks (okay, the few weeks before last week, as I ignored last week completely), I was afraid you would never be back, BUT YOU ARE. AND I STILL LOVE YOU.♥
rivendellrose: (BOOM)
So, as some of you know, I completely dropped the freaking ball on [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking due to a combination of family/holiday stress, crazy life events (read: omg!engaged!), and a pathetic and debilitating bout with writer's block. In short, I suck, and I apologize for that.

But do you know who doesn't suck? Freaking everybody else over at [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking, that's who! They (including several of you!) freaking rock, because when I went my guilty little way to check my stocking this evening, I had a ton of absolutely freaking amazing stuff. I'm serious, there was wibbling. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] icepixie wrote me the most fantastically adorable Marcus/Susan fic ever, designed around the five poems that Marcus Cole knows by heart (and oh, are they perfect, and it's all so very Marcus. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] sophia_sol, who I don't even know, is my hero because she wrote me this awesome little Expendable drabble, and it made me very happy. ♥ Likewise [livejournal.com profile] sentientcitizen (whose username alone makes me grin), tried to write Expendable fic, only got one good sentence out of it, but it is one hell of an amazing sentence. I'm going to have to keep an eye on her from now on, because I bet the rest of that might come out eventually.

[livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 wrote me Harry Sullivan and Sarah Jane Smith and space octopi!!! And [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_llin wrote wrote Ace and Romana!

Lastly but not in the least bit leastly, [livejournal.com profile] isilrandir, who I must clearly keep an eye on in the future, wrote me an absolutely beautiful bit of Abe/Liz from the Hellboy comics, and I squeed a lot because this is my favorite little slightly-canon and oh-so-perfect pairing. Seriously, I love those two, and this fic just catches them perfectly.

So much wonderful fic! ♥ So happy!!!

I never got around to making a commentary post after last week's DW, mostly because my reaction was pretty much wholely "!!! I HOPE THEY DON'T SCREW IT UP NEXT WEEK!!!" And really, the internet doesn't need a whole post just for me to say that, do they?

Well. Now, with it being about 24 hours until part 2 shows up to blast everything else away, one way or another, I'm thinking maybe I should make a quick post to say the basics.

Spoilers for 'The Pandorica Opens,' and some speculation for 'The Big Bang' )
rivendellrose: (yay!)
'You're not armed!' 'I am. Overconfidence, this, and a small screwdriver. I'm sorted.' )

Also, Toaster loves TV. She sits in front of it, sitting very tall and proud, ears focused, and is fascinated. ♥

The curse of Part Two strikes again.

Spoilers Really Sort of Wish They'd Watched Something Else, Instead. )

I wish I could make music videos. But I have enough hobbies that I don't spend enough time on already.

So I apply to you, f-list: Someone should make a video to Mitch Benn's "Doctor Who Girl" (sorry for the video link, but it's the best I can do to give you the song) using all the times the (especially classic) companions didn't fit the stereotype. Romana rolling her eyes and ignoring the Doctor, Ace being badass, Liz Shaw taking charge, Sarah shooting a rifle... whatever. New Who inclusions are awesome, but it'd be so awesome to focus on how the old stuff is... well, in a lot of ways, less sexist. :P

Also, I'm horribly behind on replies. I'm sorry. I'll catch up someday, I just haven't had much time on the computer lately, outside of work. ♥
rivendellrose: (he's waiting)
I was going to say "I promise I'll post something that isn't about the kitty soon!" when I realized that I do have something non-kitty to talk about.

Doctor Who: The One With A Lot of Dreams.

Spoilers are dreaming. Or aren't they? )
rivendellrose: (Tardis/Doctor)
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: The Tenth Doctor and Dr Elizabeth Shaw
Summary: The Doctor's getting older, and not all his former companions are all that broken up about not staying with him forever. And that's not a bad thing.
Warnings: Just a bit of fluff. No spoilers.
For [livejournal.com profile] seachanges, because she had a seriously crummy week. I hope everything lightens up on you, and that 2010 is an awesome year for you. ♥

Do I Dare to Eat a Peach? )

Quick link before I do my writing for the evening - The original short-story version of 'Blink,' written by Stephen Moffat for Doctor Who Annual during the Ninth Doctor's era. It's terribly cute, if a bit twee. ♥
rivendellrose: (companion cube)
...Except he totally does. Seriously. Think how much angst it would save!

I can just see it. "Hmm, I don't know... what do you think, Companion Cube? Why yes, I think you're definitely right that we should run straight into danger! Allons-y!"

....Yeah, I think that's a necessity. ♥

.......And I really still need to find a copy of that game so that I can play it. I'm ass at video games, but this one, along with Little Big Planet, I simply cannot not play. ♥

And no, I'm not at all stupid from lack of sleep due to our idiot neighbors and their idiotic music. Not a bit.
