Meta café time! Hi! And Happy Easter (again). :)

This (as many metas before it) goes down the mirror route. I'm cutting out a lot of stuff to focus on the main mirrors, so if you have any thoughts of your own, please share. I could have kept writing and had something 10 times longer, but I'm going back to work tomorrow and would like to feel like I've accomplished something... Plus, this is 4 months late.

(With many many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk for being my hybrid-brain. *g*)

This episode was exquisite. And as a consequence this post is almost more poetry than meta.

Meta café time...

I'm leaving out huge amounts in order to focus on just the main imagery. But I wanted... something pared down? Not that it's short, but - you'll see. There might be more thoughts later (/rambling) and maybe even fic.

But for now - Clara.

Just Clara.

Meta! I am leaving out so much, but time is snatching at my heels. So this'll have to do. With thanks to [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk without whom I couldn't do this.

Also [livejournal.com profile] janie_aire wrote a fascinating post that you should go read: Genre Competition (Kill the Moon)... and Zygons

Sorry this is so late, and scattered/basic. But it’s been a busy week... Mostly I'm just skimming the surface, picking out the main things I can see, without delving below in any kind of detail.

OTOH then Vikings/Norse mythology is stuff I am good with. (Nordic girl here.)

Note: This is not meta. It’s barely a review.

Less than 24 hours before the next episode... I'm all for openers that function like finales, but my goodness, they take some work. As always, with endless thanks to [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk without whom I couldn't do this, I don't think.

Would you believe it, but it's meta café time! Cobbled together in haste, but there's so much there to dig into that I couldn't leave it... Themes are touched on, and they light up past stories and events, creating new patterns, highlighting things previously dark.
