Fic: Habits

Title: Habits
Rating: G
Pairing: Ten2/Rose
Words: 1,300
Summary: The more things change, the more they stay the same.
A/N: This started as a 200-word drabble and exploded into three pages of...whatever this is. Not sure how I feel about it...I think it needs more work, but then again, the plot bunnies were begging to be shared right now. Feedback is certainly appreciated.

I love fans. They make awesome stuff. And I...slack off. Yay!

I stumbled across this YouTube user by accident, but stayed because she is uber talented.
She's got a few Doctor Who videos, Sherlock, and whatnot...haven't looked through them all, but this one is just fantastic:

Happy Birthday, Who!

Wishing a very happy birthday to one of my favorite DW fic writers ever (and one of the nicest people I've ever met on the internet...) [livejournal.com profile] who_in_whoville!

David is very excited about it.


10 ghostbusters yeaaaaaah

Hope you've had a wonderful day so far, and that it continues to be awesome!

Plot bunny. Or I guess more appropriately, Plot Monkey.

Well, after the first week and a half of classes, Creative Writing hasn't killed me yet! And that story I started in an attempt to prepare for the Workshops has grown a bit. Although who knows if it'll really go anywhere, considering I'm making up the plot as I go along...but for now I'm writing, and that's what really matters.


In case you didn't get enough last time )

In other news, I bought a new camera because I needed one for my Photography class (this sounds entirely too hipster) and my old Kodak was rubbish, anyway. I've named it Epsilon and can't keep from taking pictures of basically anything nearby.

Our first assignment is to go out and take at least 40 images that relate to a Man v. Nature type theme, so that's what I'll be doing for the rest of the day. If I get any good ones maybe I'll post them here...

I'm already dreading this semester and it hasn't even started.

I signed up for a Creative Writing class at Uni because well, I could use the practice. And I needed the credit hours, but that's beside the point.

Anyway, I was reading the syllabus and decided that I'm terrified of this professor already.

We're going to have these 'workshop' things where everyone critiques your writing and there's a question-answer thing, all kinds of craziness...which is fine and dandy, probably even helpful. But then I got to this line:

"The writer will read the first two pages of his/her piece before the class, and listen to suggestions..."

Okay, reading in front of the class? It's not nearly as awful as that public speaking class I had a few years back, but still. Writing stories to be critiqued is one thing, reading them aloud to the class is quite another.

Add to that the fact that we're expected to turn in 5-20 pages of writing for this critique thing, and I'm in full-on panic mode. It's been a while since I've written anything that wasn't fanfiction. And I'm pretty sure that won't cut it for this.

So I've started writing already, even though the first class meeting isn't until...later today. About twelve hours from now, in fact. Hoorah.


Step this way to read some random story I've started... )

Shameless self-promotion. Or I guess "Shoe-Promotion".

If any of you follow me on Tumblr or DeviantArt, you may have seen this recently:

avatar shoe concept

After an entire summer of me putting off this project, my older brother basically jumped all over me for not making these shoes I promised him. So about a week and a half ago I sat down and spent five hours designing the things (see above picture) and then continued to procrastinate because I thought "no way the real ones will be this much fun or turn out this awesome".

And then they were. Did. Whatever. )

Oh, would you look at that. Another post.

Don't worry, I'm not posting Fic or anything...
(Speaking of which, I'm now in the middle of four different DW one-shots. Because I'm an idiot.)

I think I need a drink. )

I think...

...that I'm more excited about the 50th Anniversary than season 7. 

dinner with David Tennant

I JUST WANT TEN BACK, OKAY?

Well, at this point, I'd rather have TenToo, because I want to know what's been up with Rose and everyone in Pete's World...
But this news is superfreakinexciting all the same.

...and now he IS a Woman!

The Doctor as a Time Lady, as drawn by RocketsSurgery on Tumblr: (click picture for link)
female doctor!

It was featured on the Doctor Who Facebook page. AND retweeted by Moffat AND reblogged by Neil Gaiman...so that's something.

I LOVE Three, Four, and Eight. Five is adorable. But Nine, Ten and Eleven frighten me a bit. Ten would be wayyy cuter!

Can't decide if I'm excited or not.

the BBC released the trailer for Doctor Who: season 7 on today:





I'll just let you watch that real quick. Go ahead, I'll wait here.
*taps foot impatiently*

Okay, now please tell me I'm not the only one who; when Rory asked "Who killed all the Daleks?!" and the Doctor replied (wait for it, its supposed to sound epic...) "Who do you think?"; immediately shouted
"ROSE! ROSE KILLED ALL THE DALEKS. AGAIN."

Obviously I am incapable of this little thing called 'letting go'.
Anyway...

The new series looks interesting, to say the least, but I have to say I cringed when River's annoying little face popped in there for a bit. I knew it was coming, but still. My little fangirl heart can't take it.
Along with most other things Moffat throws into the DW ring to mess with us.

the Scoop

-After a ridiculous amount of tweaking, I was finally able to get my journal looking how I want it. After staying up til 3am messing with CSS. Hooray!

-Arizona is hot. I hate it. But it is very beautiful, so I guess that helps.

-I had a dream last night wherein I met Billie Piper. I made a fool of myself and she was really short. And I mean really. Probably 4'10" at the most. It was weird.

-I went back and overhauled my one-shot Drift, because when I reread it I realized I must have been really tired to post it as it was...

-The first chapter of my first DW series 'Relativity', another DW one-shot, and a Phantom one-shot are almost done. I think if I started focusing on one fic at a time it would be easier...but I'm difficult that way. Oh! And the next chapter of The Phantom's Lullaby is about halfway done. There are only three more chapters until I finish that one up (finally).

-And I just wanted to say, you guys are all very inspiring to me! [livejournal.com profile] who_in_whoville[livejournal.com profile] timelord1[livejournal.com profile] kelkat9   [livejournal.com profile] milieva and so many others I can't remember right now, you're all just awesome writers and I love everything you've written.

Now I think my sister is dragging me shopping. Yay. Hope everyone else's day is more exciting than this :P

(no subject)

Well I'm in Arizona now, and everything is so FLAT. I'm used to being basically surrounded by the Appalachians, so its odd to have my view of the horizon completely unobstructed...[Oh, and the guy sitting next to me on the plane was reading Catching Fire..I may have fangirl-ed for a moment]

Anywho, a friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I thought I would share it with you guys. It's definitely been motivating for me to just get writing and stop trying to make everything absolutely perfect the first time around...

♪...It’s completely terrifying but it’s so so exciting... ♫

I'm a little bit anxious right now, because tomorrow I will have my first experience with Time Travel.
Okay, maybe that wasn't dramatic enough.

...my first experience withTIME TRAVEL...VEL..VEL...VEL...

Better.
I mean, its only an airplane. 

I'm flying to visit my sister in Arizona and there's a 3-hour time difference. I will practically be living a portion of my life twice because TIME TRAVEL. 

Can you tell I'm excited? Like ridiculously, crazily excited. And nervous. But mostly excited.
And yes, I know time travel doesn't work that way, but its the closest I'm probably ever going to get. So stuff it.

And I'm making it my personal mission to get into as much trouble as possible while I'm there.

I should probably start packing now.

Story: The First Foraging

I'm sorry for this. Really, I am. 

Our house has been infested with these little buggers since the Almighty Blackout, and this just kind of...happened.


One small step for antkind. )

The play's the thing!

I'm here...'borrowing' some wifi from a church, and I happened upon this:

I've seen David's Hamlet before (and loved it!), but I didn't know John Simm did a version as well! Seeing them back-to-back was really cool, but I won't pick a favorite...I'm too biased towards DT for it to be a fair judge of acting! 
Needless to say, I am a very happy fangirl.

What do you guys think? Is David's or John's interpretation better? Or are they just different styles, equally amazing?

Um...yay?

Well this is certainly turning out to be one of the more exciting days of my summer so far.

I’m typing this into Word right now [Friday] because our power’s out and therefore so is the internet. (I’m at a neighbor’s house right now to post this- they have a small generator) But that could be a whole post in and of itself…


I'm having so much fun right now. )
