First of all - GIP! Isn't this icon the most adorable thing you ever saw?

Secondly: [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon explains why she loves Eleven:

When I tell people that Eleven is my favorite Doctor, people automatically assume that I like him because he’s silly and quirky, while in reality, those traits have very little to do with why I like him.

This is my current favourite piece of music:



And a petition:

It's Never the Child's Fault. (Trigger warning: this petition text contains references to sexual assault that may be triggering to survivors.)

This story made me so angry when it broke a few days ago that I couldn't even write about it.


ETA: Knew I was forgetting something (with thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maggietimelord):

The TARDIS on Google Maps.

But. People. Its WRINGER. With a W! A character does not 'go through the ringer, because that would MAKE NO SENSE, unless maybe they were in a bell tower, and non corporeal, and could thusly walk through the bell ringer.

Even worse is someone ringing their hands. (Yes, I have seen this. I am still stuck between being appalled and laughing my head off.) What do they think they're writing?

This post brought to you by a brief venture outside my flist.

(Also: Ad nauseam and dammit, now we're here. Have I mentioned how I am not good with mornings? Grrrrr. Die, mornings, die.)

But, so as not to have infected you with my grumpiness, have a FABULOUS fic where Martha meets Eleven:

Strangers with Bow Ties by sciathan file.

If I had needed a further excuse to NEVER vote for the Tories, this story would have done it. (Torchwood star John Barrowman is stunned and dismayed by British Prime Minister David Cameron's apparent support for a ban on showing same-sex kissing on U.K. television outside late-night "adult" viewing hours.)

For starters, they'd have to ban re-runs of Doctor Who...

Dear LJ

What is the point in being run by the GODDAMN RUSSIANS if you can't find the people responsible for the DDoS attacks and break their kneecaps or something...

Do not click on this if you are in feeling in any way positive towards s8. No really. )

Finally, Barb is being awesome again and has decided to host a ficathon (see linked post for more details):

NERTZ TO YOU, JOSS WHEDON! FICATHON

Rules: Write a story that addresses something that drives you nuts about S8. It can be any length, any pairing, any characters, any rating. It can be a story about Angel that takes into account that he's got a son he cares for. It can be a story about Giles being a competent, kick-ass researcher. It can be a story about Buffy being an effective leader. It can be a story that just has good pacing and a plot that makes sense. It can be shippy, or it can be gen. It can be comedy or tragedy, adventure or character study, kinky or vanilla, canon-compliant or wildly AU. It can be anything, as long as it takes an aspect of S8 that you don't like, and does it better.

(Disabling comments cause this is a rant and I'm not going to discuss it.)

Like everyone else I've been reading about Roman Polanski. This is probably the best article about the whole situation, and one I agree with very much.

And this is a list of Hollywood celebrities supporting him. What part of 'He raped a child' do they not understand?

Dear LJ

Do NOT mess with customisation! Period!

Angrily,

Elisi

(who has just spent forever getting her LJ back the way it was, after deciding to change her banner in honour of Spike's birthday!)

ETA: This is a good opportunity to pimp [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny's TOTALLY AWESOME Harry Potter vid:

Snakes on a Plane. (Harry has *had* it with the motherfuckin' snakes on his motherfuckin' plane broom!)

If (like me) you only ever watch one HP vid, make it this one. Trust me.

The good news: We just bought a tumble dryer which will make my life SO MUCH EASIER!

The bad news: The Mac ate my picture and music folders when Darcy upgaded the operating system. The music isn't *that* big a deal, since it's all replacable, but in the picture folder were ALL my wallpapers, carefully collected over more than 2 years... including quite a few from the BBC's now-dead site. ::cries:: Although I keep telling myself that at least the fic is all there!
