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:





In other news... )


gallifreyireland: (10 what is this I don't even)

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... )
gallifreyireland: (me no like you face)

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. )

-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

gallifreyireland: (yay kermit)
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.
gallifreyireland: (i hate pears)
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. )

In case you were wondering...

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. )
