(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

ETA2: I THINK THEY CHOSE WELL:

Nerves commencing.

In case there is anyone who has not seen The Curse of Fatal Death (Comic Relief Special from 1999):



Still a classic.

(These get fancier every time! Also SPOILERS on the page for S10.)

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:

DW: Somewhere Over the Rainbow
LJ: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

summary: Dreams really do come true

Obviously SPOILERS FOR EVERYTHING.

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. ♥

CLASS

elisi: (Class)
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.

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.

SAVE FREE SCHOOL LUNCHES!


(I still can't believe that this is real. WHAT IS *WRONG* WITH THE TORIES???? Who the hell takes food from children?)
elisi: (Forest)
This has been SUCH A BUSY WEEKEND. Although in a good way.

For now, the brief thoughts I wrote down on The Empress of Mars.

Here be Spoilers )

I HAVE YET TO WATCH 'THE EATERS OF LIGHT' NO SPOILERS PLEASE!!!
elisi: (Choose Love)
If you haven't heard of The Great Get Together, have a look! There might be something happening near you!!

It's in memory of Jo Cox, celebrating her message, and very much what we need right now. And just look - a media first! The Sun & Daily Mirror print a shared editorial backing The #GreatGetTogether inspired by Jo Cox, and The Telegraph and The Guardian have written a joint opinion piece celebrating #MoreInCommon. (Follow link above to see them.)

And here are four former Prime Ministers:



"We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us."
Jo Cox, firs speech to Parliament.


(And also, you should all go watch The Last Leg. <3)
