dramaturgy: ([DW/T] I'm sorry.)
omg I just started downloading the Christmas special and I’m not ready. I’m not ready for Eleven to go.

As much as I love Ten, I feel like Eleven is “my” Doctor. And normally I hate that phrase because they are all the Doctor, even if they bring out very different parts of his personality, they are all the same character. But I caught up just after it was announced David was leaving, and the year after I caught up, he regenerated. So Eleven is really the first Doctor I’ve gotten to experience the way everyone else does — one episode at a time, in one season (or half season) chunks.

And I know there is an entire contingent of people who hate Moffat’s handling of the show, but you know what? He has missteps but if I wanted any entertainment that wasn’t problematic, I’d be in huge trouble. I like Moffat’s multiseries arcs with Eleven, and I liked that we didn’t get all the answers in a neat little bow at the end of the season, even if we thought we did. I love how much it gave me to think about, and how it made me love the Doctor even more.

I’m excited for Peter Capaldi and his journey as the Doctor, but Matt Smith will always hold a special place in my heart not just as a consummate actor of my generation and all around nice guy, but as the Eleventh Doctor.

Title: You Can't Carry it With You If You Want to Survive
Characters/Pairings: Melody Pond/River Song, the Eleventh Doctor, OCs. Amy makes a brief appearance.
Word Count: 10,963.
Rating: PG.
Summary: Melody Pond was born and raised to take the Doctor's life, and now she's saved it -- not only saved it but reversed death with her own regenerations. She can't go back to where she was, but she's not sure that she can go forward. Behind her is Melody and the Silence who have made her into the perfect weapon and are now chasing after her, and in front of her is the mad, impossible Doctor who knows a woman with her face named River Song.
Author's Notes: This has been a [livejournal.com profile] journeystory Big Bang production! Well. It is by the far the longest thing I've ever written by myself (fiction-wise) and I quite like it. I hope you do too. This takes place after "Let's Kill Hitler" for River, and "Closing Time" for the Doctor.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything having to do with Doctor Who. If I did I would stop killing Rory.

Special Announcement: As part of the challenge, [livejournal.com profile] elvira_was_here did some awesome digital art for the story. I encourage you to go tell her how awesome it is either at this link here or by clicking on either the banner or the art piece. Because they really are beautiful.

''You made a choice when you walked out of the hospital -- you gave the poor sisters a collective heart attack, you know, it's a good thing they're all medical professionals; you made another one just now by coming with me, and if the movement in your hand is any indication, you are currently making the conscious choice to not shoot me where I stand.'' He paused. ''Thank you, by the way.'' )
dramaturgy: ([Celebs] Hello ladies.)
Little known fact: my best friend [livejournal.com profile] thinkatory and Matt Smith share the same birthday. The more you know!

You, um... you may just want to let this post load before you try and view it. I may have gotten a little carried away.

dramaturgy: ([DW/T] ILY.)
Title: Lovers Like Lights on a Midnight Train
Characters/Pairings: Rory Williams (AU, female), Amy Pond, the Doctor (Eleven), various OCs; Rory/Amy.
Word Count: 6,824.
Rating: PG-13.
Summary: Rory isn't like the other girls, and neither is Amy Pond. Is it a line to cross -- is it okay to be the queer girl's friend but too hard to be the girlfriend?
Author's Notes: This fic was spawned by a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] eleventy_kink. It was written and completed before "Let's Kill Hitler" aired, so there are only spoilers through "A Good Man Goes to War." One day I may fix it to fit LKH but… not today. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] thinkatory for the beta job. Go read her stuff next. It's way better than mine.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything having to do with Doctor Who. If I did I would stop killing Rory.

At six, Rory plays dress up with the other girls even though she doesn't want to. She does this because her mum says it's important to take turns and that sometimes, we all do things we don't want to do. )

Title: A Fairy Tale Called Gallifrey
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River
Word Count: 712
Rating: G
Summary: A little father/daughter bonding time.
Author's Notes: [livejournal.com profile] spoiler_song Guns and Curls prompt: Doctor/River "I speak baby." Doctor talking with their timebaby, please. I make no apologies for the fluff and kidfic. As they say on Tumblr, deal with it.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything having to do with Doctor Who. If I did I would stop killing Rory.

After stout refusals to name her daughter Rigel, Celaeno, Adenine, Pentachlorobiphenyl (Penny for short), Mabel, or anything else the Doctor suggested, River said that without a doubt, their girl was definitely a Astraea. )
dramaturgy: ([DW/T] I'm sorry.)
Title: Three Timelords, One TARDIS
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (Eleven), the Pandorica (Amy), the Centurion (Rory), OFC (Violet), Pandorica/Centurion.
Word Count: 1,691
Rating: PG.
Summary: The end of a long day: the Doctor's regeneration damages the TARDIS and the three Time Lords crash land in the garden of a little girl who could use some help with that mysterious crack in her wall.
Author's Notes: Quick FAQ: Where the hell did this come from? The prompt was from the AU theme at comment_fic, [livejournal.com profile] owleyes_arisen asked for Timelord!Amy (the Pandorica), Timelord!Rory (the Centurion), and the Doctor. This is what came out. Do you know what's going on in here? A little. It takes place during the beginning of The Eleventh Hour. No, I mean, do you really know what's going on? I was actually ignoring as much chatter as possible because now I have ideas. You did THIS WRONG!!! Well. Sorry. This is unbetaed so I'll fix errors as my tired brain sees them. Should I review? Duh. Is that really the title? STFU.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything having to do with Doctor Who. If I did I would stop killing Rory.


The landing was hard and sudden, but it was a landing, and the TARDIS was no longer hurtling through time and space and throwing them about. )

Today my sister woke me up at 4:30 this morning to say good bye. :( She and Abby flew O'Hare to Detroit and now they're Detroit to Japan. It was nice having her home for two weeks.

I still need a bingo card for Christmas. Being with my family is exhausting in a way that I forget about when I'm in New York.

My brother's ankle is doing better. His surgery was okay, it's healing well, and he's not really in pain anymore. He's getting around better. Next week he goes back and if all is well, he'll get a removable cast -- he can take it off at night and to shower. After that might be a walking cast and there might be physical therapy. We don't really know, so we're taking it as we go.

My mom, Gretchen, and I went and saw The King's Speech on New Year's Day. I thought it was fantastic, even if Gretchen and I were literally the only people in the theatre under 45. Eh. Either way, Colin Firth was amazing -- if he doesn't get an Oscar I'll be miffed, but maybe at least he can nab a BAFTA. (I am somewhat pessimistic about the Academy's ability to recognize a great thing when they see it.) Geoffrey Rush was also great, but no question the star of the whole thing was Colin Firth.

When Gretchen asked what it was about, my mom and I looked at each other and were like, "... Colin Firth..." because that's all that matters. XD

And just now Joe and I found Doctor Who on Syfy. Allons-y!

It is [livejournal.com profile] thinkatory's birthday today.

Yes, David, I'm excited too. If I had the time, this would be a proper, pretty picspam like some of my others but since I'm exhausted, Kitty will just have to enjoy her present this way, as is. dealwithit.gif

The laws of Time are mine and they WILL obey me! )
dramaturgy: (Default)
This month's challenge at [livejournal.com profile] picspammy is brain twins, so basically that means two people are picspamming on the same topic. It's kind of fun to see what two different people will come up with on the same topic. Aaaaand I wanted to do favorite episodes of New!Who. So [livejournal.com profile] defyxgravityx volunteered to do it with me -- I'll post the link to hers when it gets posted. (ETA: Hers is here.)

I put these in chronological order. I could have tried to rank them according to my favorites, but it was already hard enough choosing ten. I think this list changed four or five times, and there are only so many hours in the day. I'm doing another one next week, so watch out for that. (Also, yes, I did lots of quotes. Get over it.) But for now:

Read more... )
dramaturgy: ([SPN] Hey Assbutt.)
Holy crap.

I realized that I basically have a week and a half before I go back to school, so I am trying to schedule myself accordingly. I have a To Do list that is kind of intimidating. It's short but they're BIG THINGS like "finish syllabus" (my assignments are all laid out, but there are some miscellaneous things that have to be finished), "make up reading quizzes" (not all of them for the semester, but the first few weeks laid out would be a relief), and "packing."

At least I took my baby through the car wash.

I've been watching Wonderfalls since there's only thirteen episodes. I'm enjoying it, but I'm not all omg need next episode NOW like I was with Pushing Daisies. I love Caroline Dhavernas, she's very funny. And Lee Pace is of course amazing. And tall. ♥_♥ okay that got derailed very quickly. But the point remains. Katie Finneran! Tracie Thoms! It's all good.

Yesterday I faffed about making fanmixes for [livejournal.com profile] brb_gallifrey. I want to share them with you all too. So here's my first one: Man With No Country, a mix for the Doctor.

Man With No Country )
dramaturgy: ([DW/T] Amy's flowers.)
"The Pandorica Opens" broke my brain, so I decided to finish and post my "Vincent and the Doctor" picspam. There are spoilers herein, obviously.

As someone who battles with depression and anxiety, I have a very strong attachment to this episode and now, perhaps by extension, Vincent Van Gogh. A friend of [livejournal.com profile] phiremangston said that it felt like a hug -- and it did. Not all of us are going to hang in the gallery, most of us will probably never become known outside of our own lives, but we can take the inexplicable loneliness and darkness that we're feeling and make something beautiful out of it.

But yes. Doctor Who touched on it and reached to me without making it into a Very Special Episode. It was nice to feel like my hand was being held for just a little bit, instead of everything just being awful for no good reason.

If we had gotten married our kids would have had very, very red hair. )
dramaturgy: ([BSG] Anders/Starbuck.)
Three things today.

1. I made Tony picks for Sunday, if anybody cares.

2. [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge made a good post about Doctor Who 5x10, "Vincent and the Doctor," here that pretty much says everything I want to, but can't because my heart is too full. It was triggering, it was scary, and it was beautiful.

3. Newsies go Gaga.

That is all.

WELL it's been a long few days. Last you heard from me I was... wow, okay, [livejournal.com profile] roseanna was still with me in Long Island. I sent her home and then the following week I came home myself. Thursday I started driving home, I stayed overnight in Ohio, and made it back on Friday afternoon. Saturday was William's first birthday so my mom, Gretchen, and I went to see Cat and William. He's such a corker. She and the father's family are still having custody issues, and I think she's supposed to be back in court today. The less I say about that, the better, I think.

Otherwise, my sister is living in an apartment in Cedar Rapids with Abby for the summer and she's going to Japan in the fall, and my brother is still doing nothing with his life. I swear, I am this close to 911ing Dr. Phil on his ass, mostly because I think if I 911'd on Cat and Chris, I think it would be sticking my nose in. Oh, I'd forgotten how nice it was to not be the center of all this drama. (Although at least this drama involves things that I actually care about, unlike Who Gets The Desks In The Office With A Window.)

But that's neither here nor there.

Now I'm going to talk about fannish things. In here there are spoilers for finales of The Mentalist, Private Practice, Grey's, and Supernatural, recent eps of Glee and Doctor Who, and the Heroes cancellation. Maybe this will get me in the mood to review the six or so shows I have seen since I posted my last review on Theatre Geekery. )

Phew. That was long. But I think I said my piece.
dramaturgy: ([Tudors] Katherine Howard.)
Om nom nom Indian food. I just met [livejournal.com profile] dmp and her affianced and they are so much fun. I even think I managed to stay away from talking about myself too much, hooray! They looked awesome in their steampunk gear and I felt rather underdressed in my jeans and Hawkeyes t-shirt. They are here for I-Con and I am a little miffed that this is taking place at my OWN SCHOOL and I had to hear about it from Diana.

But yes. Anyway. I have a picture of my car!

Cut. )

He's pretty. I'm pretty sure it's a he. I don't have any ideas for names yet. He rides very smooth though. Wednesday morning was a headache because I was trying to figure out parking permit stuff. I called the office when they opened and they said if I put my stuff in online it would be ready by nine. I cheerily said okay!! and went down there. I got there about ten after nine and they couldn't find it. So they said I'd have to go to the bursar's office. I went to the bursar's office, and they said I'd have to bring in my registration. So I went and got it out of my window, but it's only a temporary registration, which they don't take. At this point I was pretty pissed because, what the hell people. I think the lady felt bad for me because I'm sure I looked like my head was going to explode, and so she got the student parking people to write me a temporary parking pass. Argh.

Wednesday night, I saw The Pride with [livejournal.com profile] strangerface and her sister, which I loved. I wrote a nice, thoughtful post on my theatre blog, and you can read that if you want, but here I'm going to do the fangirling.

If you've read this journal ever, you know that Ben Whishaw is one of my favorite actors and if they sold tickets to a performance of him reading out of a phone book I would probably go. But it was tired, it was a Wednesday, and I was getting a little headachey, so I was torn on whether or not to try and stagedoor this mofo. We walked out and kept on walking, and I left Emily and Bridget to take the 1 up to Penn. Except I went into the 'Downtown' entrance which is not where I needed to go. So I got up the stairs and it hit me: that was a sign. I went back to the theatre.

I wish I'd been cool enough to say something besides HI THANKS FOR COMING TO NY I LOVED THE PLAY CAN YOU PLEASE SIGN, but [livejournal.com profile] roseanna is going to teach me her ways. Apparently she can channel her nervous energy into being cute rather than awkward. But yes. Hugh Dancy was a total gentleman with a gorgeous smile and almost a little too [livejournal.com profile] codeswitching for me to not be weirded out (I'M SORRY I KILLED YOU, luckily, did not fall out of my mouth). Adam James was hilarious and now when I watch Planet of the Dead I'm going to be on the lookout for him. Ben Whishaw BEN WHISHAW was very nice, a bit... shyer seeming, but I did the hi, hello, thanks for the show bit, and told him I was a very big fan -- god, why am I so cliche? He thanked me, said "Cheers" (the British are so adorable), and by this time the others who had stuck around to stagedoor had realized that he was the other guy. Andrea Riseborough was lovely as well. She reminded me a lot of a girl I was at Coe with in theatre. XD None of them were a bit short, and were very happy to be there, I think.

I was too nervous to get pictures, but, playbill? )

Also, only somewhat unrelatedly as one of my first impressions of Ben was "he's a bit shorter than I thought he might be," I realized that thanks to the freakishly tall men in my family, I have a skewed perception on what "tall" is. Being 5'8" myself probably doesn't help.
dramaturgy: ([DW/T] Does it need saying?)
So I took [livejournal.com profile] thinkatory home on Wednesday. I don't fly back to New York until next Saturday. So I'm just hanging out.

I'm watching the Doctor Who "Dreamland" cartoon, and like I said on Twitter, my only complaint is that there is no way for a simple computer generated image can convey the faces David Tennant makes.

Speaking of the Doctor, I loved The End of Time and I suppose that puts me in something of a... minority? No? I find the fandom a little scary so I only hover around the edges, but I loved it. David Tennant broke my heart and so did John Simm. The timey-wimeyness of it all was brilliant and holy shit Rassilon. I am a sap and I make no apologies for it.

We caught my mother up on SPN season five, and she's all excited to watch it when it comes back next week. I'm going to get to watch it with her because I won't be going back until Saturday, and that makes me happy. It'll be the first time in awhile that we've gotten to watch something where neither of us knew what was happening. Okay that's not totally true, because we watched Project Runway. I think this is going to be a season with the judges and me at odds again. They liked Ping's... thing, which leaves me with a bad feeling about this. I don't know if Anthony can make clothes, but holy shit he makes me laugh.

I did some retail therapy on Thursday with Christmas money and gift cards that I hadn't spent yet. I feel a weird sort of pressure shopping with others, for time and other things, so I like to do my serious shopping alone. I don't know, I know that I'm sort of weird like that. I bought a top at Vanity that was just a liiiiiiiiittle tight, but if I manage to lose a little weight (I know, I know, New Year's Resolutions never stick, blah blah blah) then it should fit fine. Hell maybe even my spanx will help.
dramaturgy: ([Heroes] Peter + Emma.)
I just woke up. x_x

I would feel bad except that was an amazing nine hours and I feel awesome.

Also I downloaded Waters of Mars but I really don't want to watch it because each minute theoretically brings us closer to the demise of Ten and the rise of Eleven. It's not that I'm not excited for the switchover because I've seen some spoilers in the form of filming pics and BOY AM I EXCITED. But there is a part of me that is so attached to Ten that I don't want to let him go. And also, I've not quite forgiven RTD for killing Ianto. ;_; I know, I'm everything wrong with the fandom. Kill me now.
dramaturgy: ([Celebs] Misha makes kittens!)
I woke up this morning and went to the kitchen and there was a YELLOW JACKET hanging out in there all "'sup?" and I went "AL;SKDJF;SD YOU CAN'T BE IN HERE *CHASES OUT THE BACK DOOR*"

I swear, folks. This was like The Unicorn and the Wasp huge.

I really hope that's not setting the tone for today, especially since I have to work.

AHAHAHAHA My sister and her friends in the Doctor Who club at Coe are SO much cooler than the Coe Witches.

For April Fool's Day they gained entrance to all the buildings on campus and used dry erase markers to write BAD WOLF on all available surfaces, and put 'badwolf' as the username in lab computers. LOVE. She says next year they are putting up 'Vote Saxon' posters.

My sister is one of the coolest people I know.

That aside, today was a good day. I was up at stupid o'clock for the job interview, and it went pretty good. They're at the beginning of the interview process so it could be another week or two before I hear anything. Mom and I went to CR to fetch Gretchen for Easter, and that was pretty much it.

I had to change my shirt for church tonight, mom didn't think that the Community Party t-shirt was appropriate for a Good Friday service. And she is probably right.

I'm contemplating a layout change.
dramaturgy: ([DW/T] Armed.)

That Sci-Fi bracket makes me cry. And while I love Dean I HAD to vote for the Doctor because he's the DOCTOR. When I voted they were like, within six votes of each other. IN DEAN'S FAVOR. Vote Doctor!

There's a big long crack in the van's windshield.

I downloaded last night's Heroes to watch (obviously) and Castle, because I love Nathan Fillion, and I'm loving this so far. "A control freak like you with something you can't control? No no no, that's going to be more fun than Shark Week."
