I think this might be the perfect Twelve vid.

(I have embedded it, but watch it on youtube in wide- or fullscreen.)

The song is perfect of course (okay, it's a cover, which is sad), but the editing is exquisite, and just... *kisses fingertips*
elisi: (Poetry)
The lines for this are from the beginning of The Waste Land, but they just struck me, so I thought what the hell, and created this. Not long. Short notes follow the images. Also I found this page, which is just wonderful. (Individual links follow relevant quotes.)

Companion piece to What the Thunder Said.

Here be spoilers )

ETA: Oh and [personal profile] purplefringe posted her regeneration vid, which you should all go and watch:

I realise it's been more than a month, and this is... Well, it is what it is. It was a lovely, lovely episode, but rounding up the end of an era is hard. So this isn't that, it's just a heap of scattered thoughts strung together. I will also post a take that is all poetry, but this one is probably better for talking about. :)

But honestly, this boy is too adorable to live. I think I may adopt him.

Cautiously opens the door to the meta café a tiny bit...

I have been saying for years now that Moffat has been re-booting the show… Here is how he did it.

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.)

I kept meaning to write something about S9. Something... preparatory.

Guess this - whatever it'll be - will have to do.

Here be spoilers, unless you hang out on Tumblr )
elisi: (12 & Clara)
I am completely subjective when it comes to this vid, as I helped beta it. But OTOH I feel super qualified to recommend it, because I have watched it about a million times and I love it more every time. So go & watch & leave lovely comments:

Pompeii by [personal profile] purplefringe

summary: does it almost feel like you've been here before?

It is a vid about Twelve & Clara, learning to get to know each other (again), and their journeys of self-discovery. Which sounds terribly ponderous, so you should just go watch it and bask.

elisi: (Twelve and Clara)
Came across this one on youtube. And it's just so SHINY. Also, beginning to get excited about getting Twelve & Clara back. 1 month to go... :D

give him hell )

summary: And the third one between replaces what once was love. Clara, the Doctor, and Danny in series eight.

*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.)

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.)

Deep Breath, Into the Dalek, Robot of Sherwood )
elisi: (Twelve)
Go here for the happy news. :)

(Also you'd have to be on the South Pole probably not to hear about it. It's on the front page of the Doctor Who website.) (Incidentally my brother-in-law is actually on the South Pole at the moment. Don't think I ever mentioned it here. *g*)
