Doctor Who  
I should write a Doctor Who post. FOR ALL OF THESE FEELINGS.

Which I've already flailed about at length elsewhere, but still.



ALL THE AWARDS FOR ALL OF THEM.

First, my favorite part of my favorite comment I wrote elsewhere:
AND ALSO SHE LOVED HIM ENOUGH SHE WAS LIKE UNIVERSE WHATTHEFUCKEVER AND HE WAS LIKE LET'S GET MARRIED FIRST AND BY THE WAY I HAVE A PLAN SO IT'S OKAY

AND THEN THEY DID AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND HOT AND IN THE LIST OF THE MOST PASSIONATE KISSES EVER IT KINDA BLEW WESTLEY AND BUTTERCUP OUT OF THE DAMN WATER TOO BAD AND I LOVE PRINCESS BRIDE BUT FACTS ARE FACTS

Ok, Amy's face when she realizes "mother-in-law" - HILARIOUS.

Rory and his "... okay" face. and the final pay off of "Killing Rory all the time" - nope, not this time.

I can't get over knowing as a fact how old Matt Smith is, in real life, and he is TOTALLY NOT THAT as Eleven.

River! Ponds! Eleven!
-- now all in the same family! (and he DID NOT HAVE TO DO THE CEREMONY TO TELL RIVER HIS PLAN. I just. how is that unclear, people? He did it, because he chose to. And she chose to. And Amy and Rory gave their permission (though, lol, poor Rory) And I love that they use the bowtie, that was, like, ULTIMATE prop use ever.

okay, and someone mentioned Susan in the comments elsewhere, and I was just thinking that since part of River's life is on Earth now, I am STILL thinking of that crib and how it needs a baby in it. IT DOES.

ALso Holy Roman Empiror Churchill, the super meta talking about the Christmas Special (sort of), pterodactyls, wacky balloons!

Amy, taking down Madame Kovarian and saving Rory because she is Amelia Pond and she remembered EVERYTHING.

and hee, head in a box and good wi-fi! Creepy skull things! And mom and daughter bonding over wine in the garden and Amy finds out that NO NOT DEAD and then there's a party of happy fun times. (oh and also how careful Moffat was to tell us, that yes, River was lying about the suit in Day of the Moon. *snicker* yeah, he knew someone would mention that.)

"Doctor Who?" being the First Question. LOLOLOLOL MOFFAT IS A TROLL AGAIN SOME MORE. <3 <3 because OF COURSE.



And so also, now I want to read books about Eleven and Ponds and River, if anyone has any recommendations about how to fill in the LONG COLD GAP UNTIL CHRISTMAS... :(

ALSO

Last Friday, I watched Haven because of Tahmoh, despite having not seen it before. I don't quite understand everything, but I figured out enough. It was cute. Not enough cute that I'm going to go dig up all the past eps but maybe if it comes back, I'll watch from there. I gather its status is a bit uncertain though.

I'm still not finished with my pyramidofdreams ficathon story! ACK! must finish! (and hopefully get it beta'd as well, but, er, I don't know. Last minute and all. yikes.)

First of all, PONDS.

Second, I hadn't realize how fucking well creepy Tahmoh could play ("Gosh, son, let's go kill some folks. For their own good!"), because I'm used to the adorableness of Helo.

POOOOOONDS! yes.

Yeah, that one took advantage of Tahmoh's Nice Guy-ness to make it sound reasonable, which just adds to the creepiness.

I love the Ponds. EVERYONE is a Pond.

I did love that Duke was all, "No, seriously, I'm not a shithead; I don't plan on killing my friend."

So. Much. Love. For this entire episode. And "her days, yes, but her nights are between her and me" or however that was phrased. I think I made dolphin noises.

I'm still not finished with my pyramidofdreams ficathon story! ACK! must finish! (and hopefully get it beta'd as well, but, er, I don't know. Last minute and all. yikes.)

FRAAAAAAAAAAK! *runs off to start writing*

*runs back*

I'll beta yours if you'll beta mine. Unless, of course, you're writing mine...

*runs off again*

HEE. This is one of those where I can't even LOOK at Unhappy People's comments, because THE SQUEE IT IS MINE :)

Stormcage has her days, and they get the nights! THAT WAS THE BEST. (as well as explaining why River doesn't really give a crap about 'doing time' properly and gets out of Stormcage whenever she wants, because she didn't actually DO anything, she's just conning people into thinking she did.)

IT WAS SO GREAT

but lol, I don't know if I'm for writing them. DW still feels a bit like someone else's fandom since I'm really only a fan of Eleven and Ponds and River...

Though I am tempted to expand on my little DW/BSG crossover ficlet, because Kara and Sam as Companions off to rescue Ponds -- it always helps to get into a new fandom by crossing the old...
