100indecisions: my chains are broken (dw | ten + kitten = *wibble*)
Like everyone else on the internets, I just have to post about the new pictures of Various casting spoilers for Doctor Who )
100indecisions: my chains are broken (ats | angel thinks you're boring)
I never did post a wishlist before my birthday or Christmas. Not that anyone was begging me to. But I like listing stuff I want. :p But then that post-here-and-I'll-make-you-something meme was going around (...um. I don't think I've finished anything for anyone on my list. Possibly haven't started any.), and I posted on several others', so I figured I might as well post the part of the wishlist that are things people could, you know, actually make. In case anyone wants any ideas, or...whatever.

  • A cunning hat. Because.
  • I have to admit: the Secret Life of Dolls kind of had a big influence on me getting into action figures. I mean, I wanted a Ten action figure anyway, but now I have him, Rose, Martha, and Angel, plus a 12" Clockwork Droid doll. And I want more, like Coraline (okay...I think I've seen two or three different face sculpts for each version of the doll and I can't figure out whether I'd be getting the one I want) and Edward Elric and Spike if I could find a good one. But what I really, really want are three that don't exist: Death of the Endless, Tonks (seriously, why isn't there a movie!Tonks in her DoM outfit? That would be perfect), and River Tam. I have thought about cannibalizing an existing doll for one of these purposes, but none of mine are right; all I have are old Barbies, and not only do none of them have the right coloring for any of these three, their faces and shapes are...well, come on, do you think Death or River really look like Barbies? (Tonks could, although I expect she ordinarily doesn't. And I wouldn't want her to, natch.) If I had gobs of money, I could piece together a perfectly satisfactory River, Tonks, and/or Death from the kinds of dolls and clothes at places like the Denver Doll Emporium, but when the naked doll alone can run anywhere from $50 to, like, $600...well, yeah. But if anyone has got some dolls/action figures or knows where to get them cheaply and could make a convincing River/Death/Tonks, that would be so awesome. (I might be able to make a decent Death out of my sister's old Arctic Barbie, assuming she still has it, along with some white and black model paint and goth-girl clothes, but adult Barbies have such a weird shape, and they really aren't very flexible...)
  • This kitten. Or this one.
  • Or a red panda! Especially if it's a baby one! Heck, a normal panda would be cool too.


There are so many fics I'd love to read but, for whatever reason, don't feel qualified/inspired to write, so I pass them on to you. And they get their own list. Annnd nearly all of them are crossovers. I dunno, that seems to be the easiest way to think of "Hey this would be AWESOME! But I have no idea how to write it, but someone should!" ideas.
  • Ten meets Dumbledore. Two mad, brilliant old men--they'd get along great. Bonus points if Ten puts his feet up on Dumbledore's desk. (And no I do not mean Ten/Dumbledore, geez.
  • Molly Weasley meets Jackie Tyler. They would be terrifying.
  • You know in A Wrinkle in Time how Meg and Calvin and Charles Wallace get their dad back but don't actually defeat IT or fix Camazotz? Don't you think Nine would be a good candidate to come in after and take care of that?
  • River and GLaDOS and the Weighted Companion Cube PLEASE PLEASE. Look, River's a little crazy and also brilliant, and GLaDOS is a crazy evil sentient computer, and it would be awesome. (No, I haven't a clue how you'd work that out.) And don't even ask how I came up with such a cracked-out idea. ...Okay okay, it's not that complicated: for some reason I thought Laura Gibson's version of "All the Pretty Little Horses" sounded like a good song for River, and it has a line that goes "...and when you wake, you'll have sweet cake," and of course...yeah.
  • OH YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WOULD BE AWESOME (also easier): you know what happens if you beat the game, right? Right, well...maybe somebody should, you know, land his TARDIS in the Aperture Science Computer-Aided Enrichment Center and check that out. Because while River and GLaDOS would be cracktastic, Ten and GLaDOS would be epically hilarious.
  • My most frequent comment when watching Lost these days is "You know, if the Doctor would just show up, he'd have them all sorted out in ten minutes."
  • You know Jacen Solo in the Star Wars EU? Han's kid? You know what he's been up to lately? Yeah. There should be an AU where Ten smacks some sense into him, you know, when such a thing would still be possible. Because nobody messes around with Time on the Doctor's watch, and Jacen seriously needed it.
  • Ten and Chrestomanci saving the world together. I think they might be annoyed with each other at first but would then get along fabulously. I kept being reminded of Ten when I was reading any of the Chrestomanci Chronicles.
  • A semi-crack fic crossing AtS/BtVS with the Twilight-verse. You know, because Angel and Spike need to beat up Edward, and Buffy or Cordy could pretty much beat up Bella just by looking at her, and Spike would have a wonderful time pointing out to Angel all the ways in which he and Edward actually are similar. Also because Angel really needs to tell Edward something like "When I crawled into my girlfriend's room and watched her sleep, I was evil!"
  • Any Doctor and Charles Wallace, ideally when he's still young
  • Nine couldn’t save Númenor either. EPIC ANGST, I know.
  • Doctor Who crossed with Back to the Future, especially after the "Shakespeare Code" mention, and also, TARDIS > Delorean.
  • Any new Doctor and companion somehow on a reality show like Amazing Race, because...it would be cracktastic. (I know "Bad Wolf" kind of does this and it's made of win, but them actually being in a reality show because, like, another contestant is an alien or something, would be awesome.)
  • Nine or Ten and Ender Wiggin. Not sure if Ender's Game or Speaker for the Dead Ender would be better.
  • Four or Ten and Willy Wonka (either). Crazy manic shenanigans.
  • Ten and Ace Ventura, NO I'M SERIOUS. A lot of the Ace Ventura humor is too juvenile for my tastes, but some of it is honestly hilarious, and...honestly, I have no idea how Ten would react confronted with someone like that.
  • The TARDIS landing on the Satellite of Love. YES. IT WOULD BE AWESOME.


So...um...yeah.

Also because most of these went in my Random Stuff folder and I only just realized that for some reason, privacy settings kept said folder invisible to everyone but me and those in the UAA network (which is to say, virtually all y'all). So...I don't know what was up with that.

Pictures! )

POLL TIME

Feb. 7th, 2009 10:07 pm
100indecisions: my chains are broken (wanderlust | there the dance is)
Or, "Kyra has another conundrum about what to buy and what not to buy and needs your input AGAIN".

So here is the conundrum: the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] piratecatarina gave me a $20 Amazon gift certificate (for Christmas or birthday, I forget which), and as always I have thought of far too many things I can buy with it. The difficulty, of course, is that I cannot possibly get all of these things, and I would really prefer not to go over the $20 because...I kind of have no moneys. As in, I have about $500 to my name right now (not including the $250 in my retirement fund so far, which I'm not planning to touch, and not including the $300 tuition waiver I should be getting ANY DAY NOW or the $375 when I finish this stupid binder project or the $500 from Fellows I should get at end of term).

Thus: y'all get to help me decide. It also helps that most of this is available used for somewhat less, which is where my math comes from.

[Poll #1345687]

ETA: Oh great, so far I have one vote for each thing except none for the Coraline shirt and none for "other". That's not helpful, I might have to actually MAKE A DECISION OHNOES.

I'd been following some of the rumors (well, to the extent that people on my flist posted about them, anyway) so I had some idea who the contenders were. I didn't know it was going to be revealed in the Confidential today (apparently that's why they didn't air a Confidential right after "The Next Doctor"?), so seeing [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda's announcement today came as a surprise. I wasn't entirely sure I wanted to know--look, I'm still in denial over Ten leaving even though I've known for months, shut up--so I clicked with some trepidation.

My first reaction: "Who?"

Yeah, never heard of the guy. He looks okay, I guess (I would just love to see a multiple Doctors special where he runs into--well, really, any previous Doctor, but especially one of the first four; they'd be all "This is ridiculous, why do I keep getting younger as I get older?"), but I have no idea whether he can act. Although the fact that he's worked with Billie Piper before more than once is amusing.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (dw | Doctor and Rose say um.)
So I went back to that Television and Movie Store today, you know, the one with all the Doctor Who merchandise that I shouldn't buy because I'm spending too much money. I ended up not getting a Martha action figure or a Ten action figure because it turns out I can get them both a lot cheaper online, but I did get a clockwork robot doll because...I wanted it. And it was £7.50 which is not that bad considering.

Anyway the only thing I didn't get that I still need from there was a Doctor Who poster, and I did check to see if that's any cheaper online and it's really not, so I'll be going back. Problem: don't know which one to get. They have several, but there are only three--new ones--that I'm dithering between, all of which you can see here, and I can't decide which I like best. I can't really get all three (or more than that; there's an SJA poster I wouldn't mind because Luke is just so adorable) because they're £3.99 each, which comes to about $6.30.

Which means, flist, it's time for another poll!

[Poll #1293837]
100indecisions: my chains are broken (crossover | this is bat country!)
Because I need to distract myself with something frivolous and because I need input. Yes. Very Very Important input.

Item the first: Tom Baker is going to be at the Television and Movie Shop in Norwich's city centre next Saturday. Yes. That Tom Baker. He's no David Tennant of course but Four is the most well-known Doctor, and he's also very much like Ten (except not as cute and not as angsty, but kind of adorkable all the same) and I quite like him. I was in that shop day before yesterday anyway and it's packed full of Doctor Who merchandise--badges and towels and posters and rubbish bins (no, seriously--there's one with this weird bottom so if you toss something heavy in it, it'll go "EX-TER-MIN-ATE" or something) and action figures and proper dolls and of course books and DVDs and...I could spend so much money there it's not even funny. (But the posters aren't that expensive, and neither are some of the Daleks, and I need a Ten action figure of some kind, and there's a rather nice Martha doll and clockwork robot doll for £7.50 each and they would be kind of awesome...!) Anyway if I spend at least £10 there I can have Tom Baker sign something. And chances are I'll spend a good deal more than that, so.

The real conundrum is this: that's next Saturday, Oct. 25. Well, Oct. 24-26 is the Christian Union houseparty in Great Yarmouth. I've been to Great Yarmouth and it's a lovely seaside town, and what's more it promises to be quite a fun weekend--probably a bit like Spiritual Emphasis Camp, actually, and it would be a very good chance to make some more Christian friends since CU is good but a bit more like church in the sense that it's a large group. And I really want some Christian friends here, and I also really want some British friends, and in general it would be a good thing.

But I also really want to meet Tom Baker and have him sign something. And I may need that weekend for studying since I have two papers due that week (ulp, need to start those).

[Poll #1281979]

Also, any suggestions on just which Doctor Who merch on which to blow all that money I need for food etc. would be helpful. :p (There is, however, a Four doll that I am so not getting, because if you think Edward Dollen is coming to eat your brains, you ain't seen nothin' yet. I wish I could show you the picture--I took a bunch of pictures with my cell phone for my own reference, but it hasn't got a memory card (rather, I haven't forked over money for a mini-SD) and there doesn't seem to be another way to transfer photos from it to a computer without paying through the nose for internet use or something.)

Item the second: I have another new blog. Because I needed another one on which to sporadically update and eventually abandon, right? Well, this one's different: it's a legit paid blogging site. I hadn't mentioned it yet even though I got a blog there almost two weeks ago because I wanted to make sure they actually paid, and they do: they're just slow because apparently someone actually reviews all the entries. Anyway the point is, this isn't one of those things where you earn a few pennies through Google AdSense based on how many people read your entries; today.com pays you $1.00 per entry per day. You can only have one paid entry per day, but the entries can be as short as 100 words, which takes like...five minutes, tops. Better yet, they have a system by which companies put out calls for brief (300 words, generally) articles for which they'll pay about $5, and so far I've sold two of those. Five bucks for a 300-word article that probably took me 15 minutes to write? Pretty nice. Not exactly publishing since my name's not on it, but still, the money's not bad. So that's something any of you might be able to do to pull in a bit extra.

Anyway, the point is, I'll get pageview money if you read my blog (I've been updating it daily--it pretty much functions as a short-entry companion to my other travel blog, as indicated by the fact that, you know, they have the same name and look almost identical), and I'll get more if you use my referral link to sign up yourself, and then you will get money for almost no writing and it will all be fab.

Item the third: Speaking of deciding what to buy--on my first item, yes I know, whatever--I need help deciding on some shirts. 'Cause I need these shirts and I feel like some retail therapy anyway and I am not exactly made of money, here. And there's...a lot I want. >_< I mean I could just show you my Kaboodle wish list (oh, and then there's also this list, which sadly is not a list of shirts I own but a for-future-reference list of Threadless shirts I need but can't get because they're currently out of print and I dearly hope they will be reprinted) but there's other stuff on there too and not all of those shirts are of the same priority. So all y'all get to help me decide, isn't it exciting? Just gonna list my top several, I guess. Assume Threadless unless I say so because most of them are.

[Poll #1281980]

So...um...yeah. And I should really read for like 15 minutes now because I'm going to a Bible study and have...done exactly no studying today. Or working on the letter to my dad. Oops.

Holy cow.

It's near midnight and I'm tired from getting almost no sleep last night, and I want sleep too bad to stir up my flail and squee and capslock again, which would be way too easy. But I just have to say:

"Turn Left" was made of total and complete win with little crunchy bits of awesome on top. I mean. You guys, seriously, it was awesome in basically every way. I swear Rusty's been reading my mind or something.

Proper review tomorrow, I hope, because I want to re-watch and also pretty much go over every single thing I loved, which was nearly everything (and that teaser for next week. OMG.), and also because did I mention it's late? And I spent most of today studying for and then taking my History of Alaska final and got in...about three hours of work. So I need to do some of that now.

But dang. This episode. Seriously. Seriously.

Okay, I need to be serious about that "proper review tomorrow" now, operative word being tomorrow, 'cause did I mention how I'm going to get myself back into flail mode again? And then I'll never sleep. Which I probably won't anyway, because OMG.

So I'll leave you with this: Rusty, after this ep, I am this close to forgiving you for the epic WTFery of "Last of the Time Lords," so much so that for the first time I'm almost sad you're leaving. For once you got everything right. Mark me, though, if you keep the next two eps from being completely made of awesome like they clearly want to be and are trying to be, I will hunt you down. Are we clear on that? Okay. Cool.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (dw | Ten OMG)
OMG. YOU GUYS.

JACK TOTALLY QUOTES ELIOT IN THE TORCHWOOD S2 FINALE.

WHY DID NO ONE MENTION THIS? I MIGHT HAVE STARTED WATCHING TORCHWOOD A LOT SOONER. (WELL NOT S1 WHICH I REALLY HAVEN'T AND PROBABLY WON'T EXCEPT THE FOUR I'VE ALREADY SEEN. BUT STILL.)

YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS DON'T YOU. JACK AND THE DOCTOR KNEW ELIOT (AND NO NOT LIKE THAT YOU PERVERTS). OF COURSE THEY DID. ARGH TOO MANY PLOTBUNNIES.

ETA: Okay okay, I'm not completely positive that's what he was quoting because "The end is where we start from" isn't quite as uncommon a phrase as, say, "This is the way the world ends--not with a bang but a whimper." I don't care. *stands by geekery and Eliot quotage*
100indecisions: my chains are broken (dw | Doctor o rly?)
So, 'The Doctor's Daughter'--nowhere near as bad as I feared, actually quite brilliant in a lot of ways )

So after all that, I'm not really sure what the point of this post was. :p

ETA: However, second clearly alien planet in six episodes FTW. Are you getting this, RTD? Alien planets gooood. We can has more alien planets, yes?

And in completely unrelated scriptwriting improvements, the writers for Moonlight are finally figuring some things out. Mick having a Facebook page and making fun of emo bands was hilarious.

BWAHAHAHA.

100indecisions: my chains are broken (Doctor OMG)
So we watched Heroes yesterday, right, and I'd known for a while that Christopher Eccleston was going to be on the show as "Claude" at some point because I'm kind of a stalker like that and I do random poking around IMDB whenever I feel like it, which is often. It didn't occur to me until last week's ep was over that he was actually in that episdoe, so I hunted down some info on this Claude and found that yeah, he's the invisible man in Peter's dream, the one Peter runs into at the end of the episode ("Godsend"), but I didn't recognize him then. Forgot about it.

Last night, of course, I was watching for him because I was expecting him and all, but when Claude first came onscreen I wasn't even sure--mostly the beard and all--so I got close to the TV, and his face did look right, and his voice was exactly the same (I hadn't expected that, and I hadn't really paid attention to his voice either last week)...and then he said "Fantastic!" OMG, I nearly died. Doubled over laughing, actually. It was all sarcastic, and I can't see Claude with Nine's manic grin (well, the beard would hide it anyway), but still. I wonder if that's just a word that Eccleston particularly likes, or if it was deliberate on the scriptwriters' part, or if it was just a really, really hilarious coincidence. I could barely stop laughing whenever he was onscreen--I mean, come on, it's the Doctor, in a beard, being sarcastic, acting ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME. I can't get over this. And now I really, really want to like him, and I kept begging the TV (yes, I talk to the TV, shut up), "Don't be bad, don't be bad!" Because...partly because IT'S THE DOCTOR, OMG, and it's bad enough that I will never be able to take the GoF movie seriously ever again (er, less than I did, anyway), so after seeing all of S1 in fairly short order, I really don't want to see the Doctor turning out to be evil, even if he's being evil in a beard. And also because Claude is sarcastic and sort of mysterious, and he snarks at Peter, who doesn't really deserve it but is so naive he's a good target, and because...did I mention HE'S THE DOCTOR? Also I think Claude probably has angst.

In other news, I'm behind on all my reading and don't know how to catch up again. Yay me.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (unreal city)
You know how I complained about boring fic titles, right? So the way I fix that is by stealing them from poetry, mostly Eliot. This would not be so bad if the fics for which I steal these titles 1) had anything at all to do with said poems, at least in obvious subject matter or metaphor or semi-sly reference or something or 2) were actually, you know, Deep and Artistic enough to merit such titles.

Case in point: okay, I really, really want to do some kind of Doctor Who epicfic around various kinds of literature, mostly poetry, mostly "Dirge Without Music" and "East Coker," because there's so much in both of those that fits astonishingly well. Stealing my title would then make a lot of sense, and it would be okay. What I'm actually doing is more like...I'm probably going to give the title "The Twilight Kingdom" to this short little fic I haven't written yet where Rose regains her PotW memories, and the only relationship between the fic and the title is that the fic is sort of, you know, about dreams and stuff. Or I just came across this really awesome Chinese poetry in my lit textbook and I want to pull part of one line to use as the title for this incredibly short and almost meaningless fic about the Doctor's regeneration, even though it has just barely anything to do with the actual fic.

But then, seeing as I'm rubbish at coming up with titles on my own, I suppose it's not such a bad thing...

Anyway, I want to share some of this really awesome Chinese poetry, because I actually managed to find it online, too. Apparently none of these have titles, but they're all by Li Shang-yin from the A.D. 800s. I haven't read much Asian poetry--read some Indian poetry by Rabindranath Tagore back in 9th grade, I think, and really liked some of it...and then of course haven't been able to find those specific poems again. But anyway, what Asian poetry I have read has been absolutely beautiful, and these really stood out to me. They're so...melancholy and peaceful.

100indecisions: my chains are broken (time turner)
I finally finished "Parting of the Ways" last night, and having now seen all available canon (unless there's some really critical information in the spinoffs or additional stories, like the audiobooks), I still have some questions on things I just can't figure out.
Spoilers for seasons 1 and 2, naturally )
  • Not exactly another real puzzle, but: why did we never get to see the rest of the TARDIS? No, that's right, we saw the wardrobe room in The Christmas Invasion, but that was it. I probably shouldn't base much on fanfiction, but it's a staple of fanfic that the TARDIS is just huge, with lots of rooms and corridors that often get switched around. I suppose that comes from old canon, but I still wanted to see it.


    In other more fancrackish news, I realized this morning that it would be enormous fun to put Rose and the Doctor in Disney World, because...it would, and because there are several rides that prominently feature aliens, and, y'know, what if some real aliens had taken over and were using those rides for...okay, I don't even know, really, but it would be fun. (Well, and last night I was watching American Idol, because Kelsey had it on, and there were these two guys that...well, one basically just looked like a lump and couldn't sing, and the other, as Simon said, kind of looked like a bushbaby and really couldn't sing, so I theorized that they were aliens. Well, it could happen! They used the reality-show gimmick in "Bad Wolf," and it was awesome there, so...it could happen.)
  • 100indecisions: my chains are broken (Doctor OMG)
    Now I finally know what the whole "rude and not ginger" thing is from. Among other things. ;p Ten swordfighting in PJs...there's something I didn't expect to see.

    So, I still like Ten better, because, you know, Tennant and all (I have to say, he hasn't seemed like Barty Jr. all season until his little whatever-that-was after Rose woke him up too early; and it occurred to me, thinking about GoF, that just possibly he was having way too much fun with that role, and that's the only reason for the whole...you know, the tongue thing), but I'm quite liking Nine after seeing the first episode on my DVD set. I think I will particularly like his angst.

    But, yeah. Both are shiny and really cute in their own way.

    Are all the Doctors so adorkable? ^-^

    (Also, I really need some new tags, because mine are almost useless.

    And, in totally unrelated news, I think I'm going to die if I don't start getting enough sleep. *bashes own skull in* I am not a morning person, yo.)

    ETA: Reading IMDB quotes for The Christmas Invasion reminded me of other parts of it--I about died when he started quoting "Circle of Life" (yes, I recognized it, just shoot me now), and I totally missed his Arthur Dent quote. Hee! That was win. Felt a little sorry for Harriet Jones, but--well, she didn't have to fire.

    *sniffles*

    Spoilers for the season finale of Doctor Who, just by the way. Be ye warned. )

    In other, less spoilery news, I'm babysitting somebody's fish for a couple weeks. This is the first fish I've had since South Dakota, which was...thirteen years ago? And Kelsey's and mine both died. >_< So I'm really paranoid this one's going to die while I have it.

    Also, we saw The Nativity Story Tuesday night. It was good--I didn't like how it distorted the timeline, of course: lots of people don't know that the Magi didn't show up until Jesus was about two, so that was bad enough, but...okay, Herod did not kill all the kids the night Jesus was born. And Mary's voiceover showing up so far in was way abrupt and awkward...and Mary's bad relationship with her parents was odd...well, and the whole fact that her first voiceover was along the lines of "Why do they force me to marry a man I don't love?" sounded pretty anachronistic to me. I've gotten the idea that back then, girls wouldn't even have thought of it in those terms--arranged marriages would have been the rule, not the exception. I did enjoy some of the friendly bickering between the Magi, and the movie did give me a couple geek-squee moments--the scene at Masada, and the little conversation between Mary and her mother that went something like "There is still hope." "Even in Nazareth?" Because, yeah, Nazareth was totally out in the sticks, and the Roman soldiers (oh yeah, and their eagle gave me a bit of a geek-squee moment too) don't want to be stuck out there any more than you do. And the cinematography was pretty, and like the reviews have said, it's very good at humanizing an extremely familiar story. I loved Joseph in particular--he was just a really good man.

    And, um, I really want to see it again, because um...I want to recap it. Badly. You know, kind of like [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda does. 'Cause--I don't know what it was, because I honestly did like the movie, but my brain kept producing really, really snarky commentary. I even thought, just a few minutes after it started, that I wanted to recap it and should start taking notes, but I just couldn't be bothered to pull out my notebook. >_< So hopefully either themoviespoiler.com or Wikipedia gets a very good synopsis, or I can see it again and take notes.

    Also, [livejournal.com profile] ressie_noldo, I am finally done with your birthday fic. I think. Yes, it has really taken me this long...and I still don't like the ending I hashed together at, um, almost 1 a.m. last night (I slept until 11:15 today. It was glorious), even though it was what I had in mind for ages. And didn't even like when I first thought of it. So yeah--it needs typing and editing and stuff.

    So, uh...

    "Love & Monsters," tonight's Doctor Who ep--all I can say is:

    ...That was weird.

    Also: more Ten[nant], less OCs and corpulent naked aliens, plxkthx.
    100indecisions: my chains are broken (plotbunny)
    "This" being, um, having written a fic. But not just any fic, no--a Dr. Who fic. Why is this so out of the ordinary as to warrant italics, you may ask? Well, seeing as my entire knowledge of canon comes from 1) absorbing stuff from [livejournal.com profile] avendya, [livejournal.com profile] ressie_noldo, and a little bit [livejournal.com profile] honorh (and then, realizing later that I have exposed myself to spoilers, going back and re-reading some of said spoilers, and getting depressed about Rose's fate or lack thereof), 2) reading synposes of all the Nine episodes (and the two or three Ten ones I missed) on Outpost Gallifrey, and 3) watching three whole episodes of Ten...the fact that I actually had the gall to write fic already is...

    Well, yeah.

    And it doesn't help that having never read any Dr. Who fic except Noldo's Ad Infinitum, I have no idea what kinds of things are and aren't written in the fandom, but I'm guessing from the subject matter of my fic that it's the sort of thing everybody and and their mom has already done. That, or something or other has canon'd me and I don't know enough about canon to know it. (I mean, I don't do these things, really. I look up everything on the Lexicon when I'm writing HP fic.)

    But, you know, I was just so grateful to get a ficlet plotbunny that let me write it all in one sitting, more or less, that I couldn't stop myself.

    Oh yeah, and it doesn't have a title, either.

    He thinks, this is the hardest time. )
