*throws open the doors to the Meta Café*

Welcome, welcome. It's been a while, but I'm finally here, and I bring you LOTS of meta. Seriously. It's 6500+ words long. Have a cuppa and a bun. Also a great deal of it overlaps - all the layers interconnect so a lot of time I end up in the same place.

As always, at least half (not sure which) belongs to [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk, and some of it probably also to [livejournal.com profile] owlsie.

And I've even left out huge amounts, just to focus on the main players: Clara, Missy, the Doctor and Danny.

(Note: Some of my images seem to have vanished. Hope this is only temporary.)

Am trying to post something before Saturday... This could be longer, and I might come back to edit, but at least I've got SOMETHING out there. (For the William Blake connections, see this review: Tyger tyger, burning bright

I'll get to all my lovely birthday comments, promise. But I thought I'd better try to write something... (Mind you, my overwhelming reaction to this episode is that I totally called it! *g*)

If you want more meta/speculation, go read [livejournal.com profile] purplefringe's excellent post: Eyes in Doctor Who.

And for a review-y review, check out [livejournal.com profile] eaweek's post.

This is pretty short, especially compared to my usual offerings...

Note: If you want a story where all the babiez are brutally KILLED and everything is about the Doctor’s man!pain, go watch The Runaway Bride. Imma gonna watch the episode with all the awesome wimmins in charge. (No disrespect to RTD or Donna. Love them both.)

With that out of the way - welcome to the meta cafe! :) This is long and rambly, you have been warned. And it jumps straight in.

Kill the Moon/Clara Who? )

First and foremost: Happy Happy Birthday to the other half of my brain, someone I quite simply couldn't imagine my life without: The incomparable [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk.

Your birthday snuck up on me, so the only thing I have is (rather rushed) meta! And - although you'll know it all already - it's something at least? So, I hope you like. ♥

(Everyone else: There are so many things I don't mention. I loved the humour of this episode, loved Courtney, loved how very real the school felt, loved the ending... But it's limited what you can throw together in less than two hours.)

As I hurt my foot rather badly Saturday morning, and thus had to sit still with my foot up, I finally bring you Doctor Who thoughts… Scattered and incomplete, but better than nothing hopefully. Pretty much written in one go, so apologies for being somewhat unpolished.

(‘Listen’ will be dealt with in a separate post. ETA: Possible spoilers [for Listen] in the comments, but none in the post itself.)
