First of all many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] zanthinegirl and [livejournal.com profile] green_maia (I loved your little ps! <3) for the lovely Christmas cards, which I have been forgetting to mention! It always get ridiculously excited about post from abroad.

And then [livejournal.com profile] luckweaver got me a truly amazing present - a Clara moodtheme!!! It took a good few days to find all the caps - not to mention getting it to work (photobucket has been blacklisted forever!), but now it is here, and amazing, and I get to look at Clara's FACE every day!!! Also changed my banner/colors etc.)

So right now I feel like this (although I don't think luckweaver is as grumpy as Mitchell *g*):

And with this I will wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! ♥ Thank you all for 2014 and hope you all have a wonderful 2015!

From DWM:

RICHARD ELLIOT asks: How do you think the other Masters would react to Missy if they ever met?

There are no words to describe what follows )
elisi: (OMG!!!)
So, in... March, I think, we went to see Frozen. (We waited until it was on on a Saturday morning & cheap!) Afterwards Darcy said how he liked it very much, although it could have done to be a little longer & for Elsa to be fleshed out some more.

The Student Academy Awards (which took place last night) were presented by the writer, director & producer of Frozen. At the after party Darcy had a nice long chat with the producer (and director) about the difficulties of juggling a complex narrative & several main characters.

So yeah, life is crazy. (They won bronze in their category.)

(He also got them to sign a DVD for the girls, so they will probably collapse in flaily squee even more than they already have once they see it. In case I never mentioned it, they ADORE Frozen... It's Impish Girl's birthday a week on Thursday and one of her wishes is an Anna cosplay outfit. (She's not getting it, those things cost a FORTUNE! /o\) But she taught herself how to play 'Let It Go' on the piano from youtube tutorials - that song has been a constant in our house for months and months.)

He also spoke to Damian London (one of the founders of the Student Academy Awards), who played Virini on Babylon 5. Not sure if he got his signature also, but they had a lovely chat.

Overall, he said it was very glitzy & Hollywood and exactly how it is in the movies. Although underneath all the madness are just people who make movies. Which provides some sort of bridge I suppose, since our life is neither glitzy, nor Hollywood... (Nor would I want it to be.)

And that's all for now, my parents are visiting and I need to go be a good daughter, rather than anti-social LJ-er. :)

ETA: So - follow your dreams, reach for the stars or whatever other metaphor you like. Sometimes it works out! (Although it doesn't make you rich. *g*)
elisi: (Dangerous Doctor)


The image above is a link to a new vid by [livejournal.com profile] tv_fan_2008. She very kindly let me preview it last week, asking for feedback. What she got was a lot of flailing & meta, as it is basically the dark!Doctor vid in my head that I am unable to make. I asked her whether she'd like me to write the notes up, and as she thought this was a good idea, here's the accompanying meta to her vid (including her input & corrections, obviously). Watch the vid, and then - if you're interested - come back to dig into all the lovely layers. (This is of course only one aspect of the Doctor, examined in detail...) SPOILERS for everything aired so far.

Quotes
CLIVE: The Doctor is a legend woven throughout history. When disaster comes, he's there. He has a storm in his wake. And he has one constant companion.
ROSE: Who's that?
CLIVE: Death.

DAVROS: The man who abhors violence, never carrying a gun. But this is the truth, Doctor: you take ordinary people and you fashion THEM into weapons. Behold your Children of Time transformed into murderers. I made the Daleks, Doctor. You made this. [...] How many more? Just think. How many have died in your name? The Doctor... the man who keeps running, never looking back, because he dare not, out of shame. This is my final victory, Doctor. I have shown you... yourself.

THE DOCTOR: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

A Richard II vid to Coldplay's Viva la Vida. I just. *hands*



(I've yet to see any of the other Hollow Crown stories, but I'll get there. Dear God I love it when the BBC throws money at stuff and everything turns out too gorgeous for words.)

So, about this time yesterday I was feeling all 'Woe is me, clearly I am unemployable' (job hunting is SO BORING), and now I'm starting work Monday morning.

*blinks and tries to get head around this development*

It's not the job I really really wanted (it was a long shot in any case), but it pays better and is perfectly nice, so that's OK. ETA: It's a admin/customer services thing, which suits me well. :)

So, yeah... all change.

ETA2: Specifically, it's dealing with, and responding to, e-mails. Darcy marvelled: "Well if there's something you're good at, that's it! Really, the last few years have been excellent training, rather than a waste of time!"

*is chuffed to bits, and not a little smug*

I HAVE JUST READ ONE OF THE GREATEST FICS EVER!!!!

Evilness vs. the Doctor by [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk: The forces of evilness have a little chat with the Doctor about where his storyline is going. River/Eleven, the Master (a new incarnation) Spoilers for all of S5.

This is a meta-fic. No really. No really. I can't really describe it, except to say that it is SHEER AWESOME and made me laugh out loud at the same time as being utterly enchanted and going 'OMG that's so clever!' *flails some more* I want to elope with this story and never come back.
