Alternative title: Why Moffat Who is Poetry

Welcome to the meta café! Although this time it's more The Poetry Café (not that there's ever much difference). What I mean is, this post is like a follow-up to The Hollow Men and will be formatted in a similar way: I.e. first up is the poem/imagery, which will then be followed by lengthy, complex and in-depth notes. No really, this is enormous. (I will also write a more regular meta post later, with all the stuff that does not fit into this very specific reading.) Also, although this meta mostly centers on The Doctor Falls, it meanders through a lot of S10, and even further back. And as always, Promethia owns at least half of this.

But first, here is the second half of the fifth and final part of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, as filtered through Moffat Who:

PART V. WHAT THE THUNDER SAID )

Hello everyone. Sorry for being semi-absent, we went to Wales for a week's holiday.

Which was very lovely indeed, and we spent a day on the river, and walked up a mountain (/big hill) saw Llanthony priory and Castell Coch, and (of course!) went to Cardiff where I saw Ianto's Shrine (♥) and went to the Doctor Who Experience.

Hence this icon. You go on an 'adventure' with the Doctor, and one of the rooms you go in, is the one with the TARDIS 'tree' and 'eggs'. I am still not over that. And Impish Girl got to pilot Eleven's TARDIS! Although the adventure was with Twelve, who was suitably delightful/rude.

(Am useless at writing about RL. But there will soon be meta! Which is another reason I've been so quiet...)

I didn't realise The Last Leg was [back] on!! I thought it had finished for the summer.

But huzzah, it's here to offer its own inimitable perspective on a female Doctor:



I have a ton of links & stuff re. the new Doctor, but tbh I'm not sure anything is gained by sharing it? Like, first of all I'll be preaching to the choir (I presume and hope), and secondly, I'm happy just being excited.

However I did want to share the icon I made. Owls (I think, or maybe it was Proton) pointed out how Thirteen's happy face upon seeing the TARDIS was just like Eleven's. So I made this. Feel free to snag. :)

Also, this Guardian article offers a lot of good insights. The thing is, you can't play the Doctor without BEING the Doctor, and Jodie certainly seems perfect:

1. The gift of the gab: “She’s fearless, that’s the thing. And when she decides she wants a job – and she’s quite selective about what she wants to do – she goes into a room and convinces them that they have to have her.”

2. The personality: At school, she has confessed, she didn’t have much interest in academic subjects, but was an unfailing show-off. “I was the attention-seeking child in class who needed everyone to look at meeee!”

:D :D :D

ETA: It's a funny thing though, the people who are 'not sexist, they just don't want a female Doctor' (a lot of them, sadly, being women). Or who just 'don't think it's the right time'. (Which, seriously? It's good the Suffragettes and those fighting for say, Civil Rights & Gay Marriage didn't take that stance.) The best way to change things is to just go ahead and change things. Nothing happens in a vacuum. People have been talking about a female Doctor since... the 80s? Moffat introduced one in 1999. And she was brilliant.

Also, I still remember how cross everyone was about Matt Smith, because he was too young and had no eyebrows.


(Re. meta on The Doctor Falls... um, I have started. Honest. Life is just being very busy.)

Very random post, but.

A few weeks ago we watched the pilot for the new The Tick TV series.

As there were sadly no more episodes, we then watched The Seventh Seal.

Somehow I felt this summed us up rather well.

And today I remembered to buy more Earl Grey (we had run out!!) but forgot toilet paper.

So if you wonder what we are like - well, this post is it. Very eclectic viewing tastes and an addiction to (good) tea. :)

Forgot to mention that I have this whole fic written & finished, which is nice. :)

On AO3 this is tagged with 'Aggressive Sarcasm' and 'Mutual Antagonism'. In other words: I had a lot of fun writing this.

Chance Encounters (AO3 link) by [profile] luckweaver.

Summary: The first step in the plan was to lie low for a little, and stay out of sight. Of course, trouble had a way of finding Roda...

Notes: This is a series of short stories, probably 3 chapters for each, with minor details about what Roda gets up to immediately following the events of 'The Death and Life of Rodageitmososa'. These take place during Roda's 8th regeneration.

6 chapters posted. Some great guest stars. Go. Enjoy. :)
elisi: (Stepping Sideways)
At the start of the year I delved back into this 'verse. I didn't mean for so long to lapse before I posted the next installment, but it took longer to write than anticipated (not to mention other factors such as RL, S10 of Doctor Who and all the meta etc. etc.) Anyway, for my tiny handful of faithful readers - here you are. I hope you enjoy. (Nine chapters, plus prologue & epilogue)

Basically each story in 'Stepping Sideways' is a visit to a different universe/character, allowing the Seeker to be seen with fresh eyes by his nearest and dearest, this time round meeting Roda (luckweaver's OC). Part of my Not the Last 'verse.

For new people - I have my own OC Time Lord and a whole verse centered around him. (He is the Master and Lucy's son and born during TYTNW.) The stories are all meant to stand alone, so please have a look if you like. I'd love you forever. <3


Summary: How do you save people that don't want to be saved?
Setting: Between A Good Day and The Death and Life of Rodageitmososa. (This is AU, but within New Who between Name of the Doctor and The Day of the Doctor.)
Spoilers: A Good Day. But can easily be read on its own.
Rating: PG-13.
Characters: This part: The Third Seeker (OC), Alt!Roda (OC)
Beta: Um... That would be a no. All mistakes mine.
Feedback: Would be amazing. :)
Thank yous: To luckweaver for the loan of Roda, for the collaboration and all the dialogue, and for the gorgeous icon/banner. ♥

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the one and only [profile] kerkevik2014.

May you have a lovely lovely day and may the Goddess bless you. <3

As people on Tumblr have been saying, the 60th anniversary looks interesting...



It's Christopher Eccleston (9) and Jodie Whittaker (13) in Antigone. And interestingly, her lines could be summed up as 'I do what I do because it's right!' Oh aye, she'll be a grand Doctor. In short - if you're wondering why she was cast, watch this. Big, angry righteous monologue, as if born to it. She'll be fantastic.

(Also, SO NORTHERN OMG. The Doctor is a Northern lass, I'm chuffed to bits. <3)
