7:00pm: Avatar the Last Airbender

I mean... wow! What an awsome show! HIghly enjoyable, fantastic world, great characterisation, one of the best shows I've seen in a while! And all from what is meant to be a kids TV program. I am very impressed!

So... does anyone wanna enthuse with me? Or, better yet, can anyone direct me to some good fanfic for it please?

3:06pm: Big Ol' Face and the LJ Strikeout (version 2!)

Right, so now I've got your attention...

That picture was taken by my friend Carole at the Doctor Who exhibition which was at the Manchester Museumn of Science and Industry. Great fun! Wish we'd taken more pics with me and the monsters... but I'm espeiclaly happy with the Boe pic...

At any rate ; my feelings/reactions as regards the whole SixApart, LJ, strikeout stuff... Cick beneath the cut if you wanna read it.

12:08am: Return and HP.
Back from Mealstrom, had an utterly awsome time, but won't go into details now. I'm avoiding reading too much of my friends page due to worry over finding HP spoilers. I'm waiting 'till I've finished the book which, all things considered, shouldn't be too long.

In the mean time if there's anything urgent you think I should see just say.

Will try to post something more interesting later.

1:48pm: Still alive!
Yep, I'm still here!

I really should proceed with a long post about all the stuff I've been up to, but I can't say I'm in the mood. Since I last posted I've been to Bangor, Flint, and Manchester. Visiting various friensd and Role Playing to my little heart's content!

Unfortunately this means my fic output has been nill, but maybe after Mealstrom I'll get back to it.

Speaking of Mealstrom... I'm looking forward to it, but I do have an oncoming feeling of DOOM and I worry that the weather will be crap. Oh well.

Ho hum...

Managed to avoid ALL spoilers for Deathly Hollows and I'm intending to buy myself a copy of it on the way back from Mealstrom. Looking forward to seeing how it ends, though. I anticipate much HP fic on the way...

I'll try and write/update again when I get back from Mealstrom.

2:53am: Madonna: Doctor Who Fanfic
Here's another Doctor Who fanfic. No challenge this time, just a little something I came up with. Set after Last of the Timelords.

Title: Madonna
Auther: Yma
Rating: PG13
Characters: Lucy Saxon and Harold Saxon
Summery: Harold Saxon wakes Lucy Saxon up with breakfast in bed and all is not what it seems.
Disclaimer: Doctor Who and all associated characters belong to the BBC.
Notes: Set after Last of the Timelords. So see how that's possible read the fic!

10:38pm: Fanfic for alytha
This is a fic written for my RL friend, at her behedst. It was inspired by a very silly MSN conversation. Not, by any means, one of my best but it fills the bare neccecities of the challenge. If you are interested feel free to click but don't expect anything spectacular. I was in a bit of a hurry to get it done and it is so worryingly Crack!Tastic that it is probably very hard to take seriously.

A Doctor Who fic based on a Challenge. (Details of which aer under the cut). Spoilers for Last of The Timelords.

6:57pm: Well Lived In
Less than ten minutes before the final ep of the season here's my own kinda-sorta post Last of the Timelord's fic.

I imagine this will probably be redundant after this ep, but then again it might not be. It's not entirely out of the realms of possiblity.

At any rate, here it is. It's just a little idea that wouldn't leave me alone. Read and giggle. Oh, contains spoilers for The Sound of Drums.

If you enjoy, please comment! Thanks.

Title: Well Lived In
Summery: In which Martha configures computers, the Doctor does domestic and the Master proves how evil he really is.
(AKA Or what happens when the Master lives in your Tardis for eighteen months)
Rating: PG13
Genre: Comedy
Speculative post Last of the Time Lords. Will probahbly be jossed.
Disclamer: Doctor Who, the Tardis, or anything linked to it is not mine. I am just having a bit of fun.

Edit: I literally finished this a few moments ago and wanted to get it up before I watched the new ep and my enthusiasm died. So please forgive any spelling/typing errors. I've read it once though already but probably missed things. I'll hopefully go back to this later and edit it accordingly. Thanks.

4:49pm: Doctor Who Fic: Beat.
Here's a somewhat hurried and un-betaed fic for Doctor Who. I was bit by Writing-Bunnies (there's no real plot to this,) and decided to put it down before I get entirely spoiled by The Sound of Drums. Please review if you read! thanks!

Title: Drum Beat
Rating: G
Chracters: Professor Yana, mentions of The Doctor
Summery: Professor Yana's always felt that there was a beat missing... Introspective piece set during Utopia
Spoilers: For Utopia, of course.
Disclaimer: Doctor Who does not belong to me, I'm just having fun.

1:42pm: The Thing With RTD...
A brief bit of Doctor Who musing, but nothing terribly explicit or spoilery, so not under a cut...

The thing I've noticed about a lot of RTD's writing, when he does episodes, is that the plot tends to exist for the character interactions rather than the character interactions being created by the plot.

This isn't always the case, of course. And it's a lot more noticable in some episodes than others. I didn't see it so much in, for example, Smith and Jones, or Gridlock, or Doomsday. But, that said, it was very noticable in 'filler' and 'buildup' episodes such as Boom Town and the most recent ep, Utopia.

And it's not a bad thing neccesaraly. Sure, Boom Town kinda flopped but Utopia, because the interactions and the buildup was so very core to the unerlying season plot and, in general, so very, very well done, it came out wonderfully! But if you look at the plot of those two eps... it's really cast by the way side. It's there, but only to grant a neccesary amuont of tension so that the auther can explore the issues and the character. Which is far different to other writers who tend to create a plot situation and then ask themselves, 'What character interactions will this lead to?'

I think this is why RTD's stuff tends to either rise to the occasion or flop limply. I find myself more or less unable to critisise it, as it's something I do myself and, to be honest, I love it when such things are explored. But never the less it is something that is very noticable within his work. Or so I find, anyway.

At any rate; what do you guys think?
Current Mood: thoughtful

Just rewatched Utopia. I fancy a debate and a squee and... yeah...

Oh well.

20th June 2007

3:49pm: Hello! It's been a while, huh? Ach, I guess I should update more but I just have not been in the mood to recentally. At any rate... a brief over-view of events.

Mealstrom was, typically, really good. Glad I went as it really took my mind off work and so forth. I'm really buzzing for next event, though I've horrible feelings that my Character really WON'T survive this next one. Still, I'm glad Corundum didn't die then as that would have really put a downer on my day.

The week after that was typically quiet and chilled which was nice. I'll hopefully have Scrib's challenge fic done soon too, and it's about time! Damn Dr Who/Yu-Gi-Oh crossovers...

The weekend was spent first visiting the Boyfriend, which was full of squiggly goodness, and after that I went and visited my dad which was also great.

I saw both Pirates of the Carabean 3 (VERY good, better than I expected!) and Doctor Who (Wow. just. Wow. I mean they... he... WOW!!!)

Came home, chilled out and tonight I'm going to see my mum's art exhibition. It's been a busy week really, all things considered, but that was what was needed. I'm feeling good about mysefl all in all and I hope I'll get more work soon. I've been applying to a few jobs so... fingers crossed!

Next I need to post up Harry Potter and the Inspecti-spides. But first I need a better title for it. Any suggestions? I'd better start putting it up before the next book comes out but.. meh. I think I'll only put it up here and on FFN for time being. Not sure I can handle the rig-marole of FictionAlly right now.

Also going to finish up the above mentioned Scrib story and then, hopefully, get back to work on Shadows In the Guarden.

Got a few projects on, all in all, just need to get my ass into gear and do them!

11:19pm: Redundant.

I've lost my job.


To be fair I was made redundant which is a damn sight better than last time, (though I still sucked majorly when it came to receptionsit duties, apparently.) and I'm going to get a good reference but... still kinda a blow to my self confidence.

I just want to get a good, profitable job which I can keep for a bit, you know? I'm tired of being scared in every job I go in that I'm going to loose that security.

Ah well, moving on. Trying not to get too depressed about it. And it's Mealstrom this weekend which I am greatful for. That'll keep my mind off it for a bit.

Hopefully it's a good season for more jobs too, which is a positive thing. So with luck I may be working again soon. We'll see.

This is just so damn depressing.

12:47am: Dr Who fic.
A short little fic I wrote at work and edited at home. It's not got much of a title asides, at the moment, Five Ways Family of Blood Could Have Ended, and One in Which It Did.

Five short little drabbles on the above subject. Feedback welcome and, indeed, begged for. Also, a better idea for a title would be nice.

Title: Five Ways the Family of Blood Could have Ended.
Rating: PG (to be safe)
Disclaimer: Not mine, just having fun
Summery: See above.
Warnings: Kind of dark and of course contains spoilers for Human Nature and Family of Blood.
