Wheeee

So, ahead of the second half of season (series) six, The Pandorica Opens/Big Bang has been awarded a 2011 Hugo award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. Woot Moffat!

And amusingly enough, three out of five of the nominees for the Best Dramatic Presentation, short form were for Doctor Who. The other Who nominees were Vincent and the Doctor and A Christmas Carol.

AND The Best Related Work? Chicks Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the Women Who Love It, edited by Lynne M. Thomas and Tara O’Shea (Mad Norwegian)
So it has been a long time since I posted here, but I can't NOT comment about tonight's episode "The Doctor's Wife". It ranks as one of the absolute BEST Doctor Who episodes EVER.

TARDIS! Sexy. AHHHHHHH Just...no words.

and BUNKBEDS!

Utterly utterly brilliant.

I really wasn't sure what to expect coming into an episode titled "The Doctor's Wife" but I was completely blown away.

And now I want to go make art for it.

Take two

 Ok-rewatching Beast Below and this time something I had heard but was too busy thinking about other things in the episode to acknowledge--When they enter the tower of London Hawthorne( that is what Liz Ten called him, right?) says this:

"Protesters and citizens of limited value are fed to the beast."

K, we all understand the protesters thing, but the second part is what I'm talking about. "citizens of limited value".

Wait, what? They make judgments on the value of their citizens and not just on the adults because obviously those judgments are also made against children. We start out seeing Timmy scared because of his failure, and Mandy worried about him followed by her crying about him.

The government decides who is useful or not and disposes of those that are not? That is a completely different problem and one which the resolution of this episode in no way addresses.

Finally figured out something to do here

If anyone has ever read this LJ they would realize that I have hardly ever used it. Now I've decided something to do with it--my weekly response to the latset Doctor Who episode! (Don't really want to put it on my blog where I talk to my family, don't use facebook often enough...decided here would be best.)

SO--Spoilers follow under the cut.Here there be spoilersCollapse )

Oh and a conversation with Ish this evening led me to conclude that I must be somehow connected to a Collective Sci-Fi Subconsciousness. See, the first episode that I ever saw of Doctor Who was "Shakespeare Code". BUT I somehow already knew about the TARDIS, and the fact that he regenerates and has had a bunch of different faces. And it was not Gayle describing it to me when telling me I should start watching this show--because even then I remember saying in the conversation that I knew who the Doctor was when she started explaining it to me.

Fanfic 100

So, if my claims get accepted (one for Harry Potter and one for Tolkien) I will then be writing 100 fics for each. Oh dear, this will be worse than Ish's vignette a week. Luckily they can be as long or as short as I want them, and updated as often as I choose. Still, I probably have no idea what I am getting into.

Here I am

I never thought I'd get a live journal, but here I am. Earlier today I found the fanfic100 community and it was too good to pass up. Now I just have to figure out what fandom and what focus to do. I'm thinking perhaps  Lord of the Rings. It might  just force me to write all those stories I've been planing in my head.  Or I could do multiple  challenges...

This LJ will be solely for my fanfic stuff. Anyone wanting to look in on me can go here.
