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)

(Seriously, just WRITING 'she'... Eeee. *flails*)

ETA: I love the aesthetic of these mini videos. The nature intertwined with the magical/otherwordly. It sits right, and also has a very different textural feel to Moffat. (Which is good. Nothing will ever be Moffat Who, so I want a complete change.)

Also Thirteen's personal aesthetic is very much to my liking. <3

Still a classic.

In short: Thirteen will be revealed after the Wimbledon Men's Final on Sunday 16th of July.

[personal profile] purplefringe made a Bill vid, all about how Bill's face is just awesome.

I was lucky enough to get a preview and basically flailed a lot and told her that yes, Bill's face was definitely that awesome, and when Bill smiles the whole world lights up.

And now she has posted it and I can share it with you all:

Meta café is... open. (Can it be? This has taken me most of the day/week!) So make sure you have a nice cup of tea and some refreshments as this is about 7000 words long. (Everything is connected...) With endless thanks to Promethia, as always. ♥

Time is not my friend at the moment, so a proper post on the amazing Class finale has not yet been written. However, I came across this brilliant post that you should all read, as it delves into all the ways the show is smart and so much more than what it at first appears to be:

THE TRUTH SNAKE: A Song for “The Lost”

MANY MANY SPOILERS FOR EVERYTHING.
elisi: (Vote Saxon by diapadme)


Funny because it is true.

Meanwhile Corbyn was at Glastonbury, as full of hope for a better world as if it was 1968 and with thousands chanting his name. What even is this year?

elisi: (OMG!!!)

Happy Birthday [personal profile] kathyh!

Hope it's a good day with nice things and that the coming year will bring much goodness.
elisi: (We are all stories by immobulus_icons)
So, last weekend was very very busy, only saw this episode on Monday and have been vaguely attempting to write something in the days that followed.

It's a lovely, lovely episode, and deserves far better than these scattered thoughts, but I know tonight's episode will be quite something so felt the need to post SOMETHING, before the story moved on.

So here it is. Very basic, barely cover a quarter of what I'd like, but it's better than nothing... Oh and a great deal is Promethia's, literally.
