clocketpatch: A small, innocent-looking red alarm clock, stuck forever at 10 to 7. (11 making faces)
I keep saying that I'm going to bunk down and write some Eleven fic because the bowtie has apparently hypnotized me. Well, I've got the opening done and I think I've just about wrestled the plot to the floor. Now I just need to figure out who's calling... suggestions? (seriously, just throw names at me, random syllables even...)

It's been a bit of a weird day, cleaning house and prepping for my nerd-out weekend (we're drinking sonic screwdrivers and watching Hamlet boo-yah). Is it sad that I've been looking forward to this for months? Then I got it into my head that my credit card had vanished and undid most of my cleaning frantically looking for it (when it was where it was supposed to be the entire time). Head!desk

By request, I bring you a great whacking list of Eleven-era fic which I enjoy and find reasonably well written. This isn't complete. I couldn't for the life of me find the one where he asks Sarah-Jane if seven year olds make appropriate companions again... which is a shame because it was good, and that one where Wee!Amy meets all of the other Doctors out of order during the 12 years.... And I'm sure I'm forgetting some. I know I'm missing a whole whack of good River ones (in fact, I don't think I have any River ones on this list, for shame). Probably I'll add to it as time goes on. But, for the moment, and in no particular order....

A really long list of fic )

It comes to mind that I haven't uploaded any icons in awhile. So, in honour of the first part of the finale (and to give me something to do while my laundry cooks) enjoy!

As per usual: want, take, have. However, if you hotlink I may just have to hit you with a blunt instrument. ;)

Total Icon Count: 9

I made some predictions. Let's revisit them, because I am procrastinating. Again.

my theories and results, let me show them to you )

I have no review. No rant.

Well, that's not strictly true: I did rant and review on the DbyA.

I'll probably rant and review here later.

Still, in all the apocalyptic fandom explosions that are going on right now, I just wanted to say:

Matty boy, I wasn't sure at first, but you know what?

You're going to be fantastic.

Turkey IS supposed to make you sleepy right? Not wired? Must've been the Master!crack I just witnessed... oh... seven hours ago?!?? And I STILL can't stop laughing at that ending. I've decided that it must be brilliant, just for that reason and that reason alone.

There are no spoilers there. See. No spoilers.

There is some spoileriness under the cut. Anyways, I was thinking this all through the episode, and then forgot to put it in the reaction post:

Spoiler cut! )
clocketpatch: A small, innocent-looking red alarm clock, stuck forever at 10 to 7. (Default)

Well... that was both completely unexpected, and utterly and completely expected.


Spoilers? )

I'm going to be making an attempt to stay away from the internet these next few days. Otherwise I will inevitably be spoiled, and though there have been spoilers a plenty floating about (and I've intentionally blundered into my fair share), there's a difference between being spoiled along with everyone else in the days leading up to and being spoiled by someone who didn't feel like putting the epic ending .gif they made under a cut. Yeah...

Anyways, before it does air I figured I'd post my deranged theories on what's going to happen tomorrow and next week. Then, after the fact, we can all laugh at how wrong I was.

Under a cut to spare you from potential spoilers )

If I shout at it enough do you think it will go away? It must work, because yesterday I finally got some real headway going on that Seven-Ace-Hex jungle story I've been fiddling with. The one with Ten and Three, however, is still sitting sad and neglected. It looks at me with droopy puppy dog eyes from its desktop corner and makes me feel guilty. Alas.

Anyway, there's also this random Ten and Christina dialogue. Which, in actually fact, I came up with about two weeks ago in a fit of boredom, but shh. I've been playing with it on the sly since then. Oh plot bunnies, why do you torment me so?

Hey Hex-y!

clocketpatch: (Seven)

So, I've finally contributed money to that great and noble company which we call Big Finish. I got two audios: Night Thoughts (which I didn't like much over-all, but had some great character moments) and Arrangements for War (which I liked quite a bit, except for the ending which made me scratch my head a bit; I couldn't figure out why the Doctor was willing to allow all of the collateral damage that the love story brought about; and why he seemed relatively unconcerned by said collateral, but meh. Was a good story and good character moments). I highly recommend.

Anyway, I'm back at work on my Seven-Ace-Hex jungle thriller thing, though I should really, really, REALLY be working on my WIPs (I did plug in a new 2000 words for Forever Tomorrow though, I'm just trying to get the conclusion sorted... I knew where I was going with that story, and then it all just sort of got away from me).

What I want to know is, do any of you think there'd be an audience for a story which contains: a spot-light stealing OC who swears a lot, a Big Finish character (Hex), an-absent-for-most-of-the-fic Doctor (Seven), a-half-dead-for-quite-a-bit companion (Ace),  and a combination of near-future politics (and by near I mean, fifty years hence, and in the DW universe), random historical stuff, archaeology, and aliens? And timey-wimey, lots of timey-wimey... It's also looking to be quite long, if I ever get it done that is. I've got around 6000 words and I'm just finishing up the second chapter. So, probably a doosey.

Also, is anyone familiar enough with Seven, Ace, and Hex to be willing to beta for them? I'm thinking this will be a relatively early on adventure to make up for the fact that I haven't heard most of their audios, but I'm afraid I'm getting the dialogue wrong and maybe contradicting established characterisation?

Mostly I'm just concerned people aren't going to stand for reading half a chapter of my OC stamping around swearing.

So, I present you with... fic! Very un-beta'd half-edited fic which needs an awful lot of clean up before it goes public, but who knows how long that will take. It started as a series of drabbles, but I kind of abandoned that format somewhere towards the end. It's Romana in E-Space, and an attempt at figuring out her change in demeanor towards the Doctor during the audio adventures (not the Gallifrey audios, since I haven't heard those, but just the regular line) as opposed to during the show, and also a bit of Time War speculation.

Length: 990 words
Rating: PG, I guess, for some implied stuff

EDITED: the fic has now been re-writ, and edited, and stuff. Yay!

As I continue not to sleep, I wanted to take this time to ask a question that has been bugging me for some time: does Matt Smith not bear an uncanny resemblance to a young Martin Clunes? Because one of my first thoughts on seeing him... after the requisit "The HAIR! the HAIR" and the "face!palm, well... THIS should appeal to Twilight fans; a vampire in the TARDIS" was "My, doesn't he look like that really effeminant dude from Snake Dance?"

I've got a nice little picture hidden below the cut (for those friends of mine who are bravely avoiding spoilers, somehow) that, thanks to the marvels of paint, shows Clunes and Smith together. On a final note, I heard somewhere that Clunes was actually short-listed to BE 11 at some point, but something fell through last minute. I don't know the truth of that story, but... O.o
