At first I just went "...huh?" at the name of the Thirteenth Doctor and had to be reminded who it was, since I didn't immediately recognize the name, after which I sort of went "uh... why them?", but I have to admit the teaser video kinda got me choked up. We'll see how it all falls out. I expect I'll warm up, assuming the stories are any good anyway.

You know, it's fine that Razor (spoiler for "World Enough and Time"; highlight to view:) turned out to be the Master and all, but I really just liked him as a character as-was, yanno? My own impression when describing him to my husband was part Riff-Raff and part a kind of Addams Family sensibility of being matter-of-factly macabre; I am not familiar with the Babylon 5 character people keep comparing him to, and I've seen a version of Oliver Twist like, one time many moons ago so the comparison to Fagin didn't immediately occur to me. But however you slice it, I found the black humor rather charming. Too bad we won't get more of that (not that we would have anyway, because he would most likely have been confined to a single episode in any event).

Donna, Immobile by [archiveofourown.org profile] pedanther
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing/Characters: Donna, Ten
Rating: General
Words: 452

Author's summary: Donna is strapped into some kind of alien thingummy, which is ticking and counting down to something (and not even in proper numbers, so not only does she not know how she's going to die, she doesn't know how long she has left). The Doctor, irritating man, is refusing to admit this is a problem. This story was written and first posted well before the season finale, so any overtones that have retroactively attached themselves to the Doctor's cheerful view of Donna's future are unintentional. (Unless you feel they improve the story, in which case, obviously, I meant to do that.) Anyone who feels inclined to nitpick the Doctor's theory is invited to remember that the real Rule One is "The Doctor talks a lot of nonsense when he's shooting his mouth off".

DW premiere: We're not crying, you're crying. That is all. (Ok, not all: PETERRRR NOOO DON'T LEEEAVVVEEEEEE---!)

Also, since Class wasn't shown on BBC America until now: what is the deal with the "prom"? I thought that was such a uniquely American thing that it featured on lists of "major ridiculous mistakes to avoid if you're an American trying to write in a British fandom, because no one else does this"? I feel like I must be picturing the wrong thing.
There's a couple other odds and ends here, such as a Doctor Who wallpaper, but here's the three ficlets I received:

Quibbles about why companions these days must always be 21st century women (although I suppose that's not confirmed yet) aside, Iiiii may already love Bill in a way I never really did Clara. I dunno. It just feels like in a few seconds of screentime I've already made some kind of emotional connection to her that was hard for me to do with Clara. (I liked Oswin and governess Clara was also good, but as a whole... meh.) IDK. There's just something about her that excites me a bit, where Clara did not...?

Just being silly. I've kind of been wanting to do a whole series of these with as many Doctors as possible, though I'm not sure appropriate source images exist in every case. I just happened to be looking at Tragical History Tour's screencap gallery for "Tooth & Claw" today and it occurred to me the 1280x720 images might almost be large enough to support a small (8 1/2 x 11) printed poster, which was the desired result as I wanted to be able to stick it to the supply cabinet behind my desk next to my printout of this:

So, eh. Just threw something together.

Last night, apparently having a passing feeling of pique over how people put Rose Tyler in, like, Every Other Thing David Tennant's Ever Done, I facetiously wondered aloud, "How come it's never Rose from the Golden Girls, huh?" Then it occurred to me to think, fandom being what it is, that oh no, somebody probably had done just that. But the closest I could find on either FFN or AO3 was someone who apparently enjoyed making Leonard McCoy boink every other character they could think of, to judge from the tags, and this included Rose Nylund; so, that's Rose and a doctor, but not the Doctor. Alas.

(Not that I would actually want to read the genuine article, mind. Eep.)

My DW feed on DeviantArt was very happy today. Check out some of these selections by [deviantart.com profile] Abecedye: Read more... )

Hm. Apparently I have quite a taste for the Victorious and other ways of depicting Ten losing his shit mentally and/or emotionally. Wonder what that says about me.

(no, DW, when I try to tag this post "the valeyard" you should not autocomplete it with "takin' over the asylum". even if maybe there is a vague thematic link with what I just said about Ten losing his mind.)

In the posts I've been reading, opinions on the changing of the guard in Doctor Who seem to amount to:

"Yay, Chris Chibnall! 42! Law and Order UK! Broadchurch!"
"Ugh, Chris Chibnall. 42. Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. Cyberwoman. Just another selection from that old boys' club."
"Should have been Toby Whithouse!"
"I was so worried it was going to be Toby Whithouse!"
"Anyone but Mark Gatiss!"
"...anyone but Mark Gatiss."

Hmm. Seems about par for the fandom...

So I didn't even notice Facebook being down at all (tells you how much I use it), and I'm apparently out of many loops that I didn't hear about this through any other vector until I had got home from work at anbout 8:30 and asked my husband what was up, but I'm amused that apparently there were a couple of factions yesterday:

Most of the internet: Water on Mars! Wooooo!
Doctor Who fans: Water on Mars?! Nooooo!

caveat lector: i mean people knew they were in cardiff, and there is nothing but doctor who in cardiff, so i understand
caveat lector: and if a man and/or his wife can't go into his own tardis, well then i just don't know what this world is coming to
caveat lector: basically i'm saying, i wish the universe would quit dangling this possibility in front of us like some kind of adorable scruffy scottish carrot

This. Is just. I mean. There were those videos of Peter playing guitar like this and tumblr is calling him "red velvet cupcake" because of the red velvet coat and I just can't even.
