So, Doctor Who finaled with Hell Bent. On the whole I must say that I found this season a lot better than the previous one, which had some great episodes, but felt somewhat disjointed. And though I liked Peter Capaldi from the get go, I feel he really grew into the Doctor this season.

So, I watched Face of the Raven last night.

Spoilers )s fault, she was just written that way.

I did feel she departed in a suitable manner. She saved the Doctor on Trenzalore, not expecting to survive, so even if she didn’t knew she couldn’t be saved from the raven, she knew there was a risk in doing so and she did it anyway to save her friend. And I think she had walked around with a death wish since Danny died. Also, even if it wasn’t mentioned, she did have contact with Danny after he died, so one can guess she felt fairly certain she would meet him again. Speaking of him I am a little annoyed that the whole plotline with Clara meeting her and Danny’s descendant is moot know.

I have always liked the chemistry between Capaldi and Coleman and I liked it here too. It really came through how much the Doctor and Clara loves each other and how well she understands him. And now the Doctor is alone, grieving and- angry. Not a good combination for him and I can’t wait finding out more.

Ashildr, however old she is now, doesn’t seem to be able to learn to grasp a few things. The Doctor cares about her, if she had just sent him a message saying “Help”, he would have come for her. No need for this plot with involved despair and grief for so many people, no matter if it was just temporary. Overly complicated and unnecessary cruel. I wonder if it will be addressed that in saving, or damning, Ashildr to eternal life, the Doctor has a hand in Clara’s death himself. Or Clara herself, for the matter, who was the one who asked him doing it.

And where is the Doctor going? My guess is Gallifrey. Even if they are his people, the Time Lords aren’t especially nice people and I can imagine they could do something like this to summon him. It could be Missy too, of course. Either way, I’m sure Gallifrey will pop up now.

I’m back on LJ! As I didn’t really want to create a new addy, I sent a query to LJ, and they told me that sometimes, as LJ sends out a massive amount of mail every day, some mailservers decide that they are spam and block them before then even reach the recipient. It’s solved now. Yay!

I’m back! Did you miss me? Probably not, but I have missed you. Last friday LJ decided that my email- the same email I have had for eleven years, wasn’t validated. And it refused to send me validations mail. As a result I couldn’t post and I couldn’t comment. Annoying and boring! As I didn’t really want to create a new addy, I sent a query to LJ, and they told me that sometimes, as LJ sends out a massive amount of mail every day, some mailservers decide that they are spam and block them before then even reach the recipient.

Then - in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!

Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.

I probably spend far too much time thinking of what motivates characters and why they react the way they do. This is something I do when I write as well and it’s important to me that my characters react in a logical or plausible way. I once got a review which said that the reader could tell I spent time with my character’s motivations and that made me very happy.

I need to get in the habit of remembering my poor Dreamwidth account. I did this on LJ, but forgot to post it ´here, so I do it in three chunks instead of 30 new days.

1 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

I have answered this question before, so if you have been around my blog for some time you probably already know what my answer is. And it’s pretty personal and possibly TMI, feel free to skip.

Answer )

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

Answer )

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Answer )

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

Answer )

5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

Answer )

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

Answer )

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

Answer )

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

Answer )

9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Isn’t three pairings a bit much? I don’t have three for all the fandoms I have written in.

Answer )

10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?

First line meme gakked from [livejournal.com profile] nenya_kanadka.

List the first lines of your last ten stories. See if there are any patterns.

1. “I could open this airlock,” Missy said. (Come Here Puppy)

2. The youthful man in the expensive suit had watched the woman go through the drawers in silence. (Passing Ships)

3. Some days Donna wakes up and the world around her is all dim. (A Cage Without A Key)

4. Romana carefully put K9 down on the ground and patted his head before she sat down herself on a convenient rock. (A Brief Encounter)

5. They don’t realise it, the people in the large stone house, but the love they feel is perhaps the strongest protection they have. (Bittersweet)

6. Know thy enemy may be an Earth adage, but true nevertheless. (Corrupting Influences or It’s All the Doctor’s Fault)

7. The sound of the slap rang out too loud, or perhaps it was just because the room got so silent afterwards. (Building Character)

8. The first time Alison heard about Professor Keller she wasn’t even listening properly. (Professor Keller)

9. Stars, in their own dimension, look nothing like they do here, though they well know what happens in a universe that seems content to think of them as shining spheres. (The Doctor and the Sun)

10. King Yrcanos saved his beautiful lady, but all she did was to cry. (Coming Home)

Patterns, well… all but one, #5, which is a Penny Dreadful fic, are Doctor Who fics. Half of them identify one or two characters by name. And six of them is about the Master, but that’s hardly evident in the first line.

We were listening to Tosca and after Te Deum my husband asked; “Why is evil sexy?”

[Pause for listening to Te Deum. Please do that, even if you don’t listen to opera. You don’t have to watch, just listen.]

Being on a Doctor Who trip as I am, you will have to stand me burbling away. I never had anyone to talk Doctor Who with before! I started watching old Who a couple of years before New Who started, though I didn’t see every episode then. I am currently re-watching Old Who and now I will watch every episode. I have just started with the Sixth Doctor. But I feel the need to discuss some of the previous ones. It’s been a little too long since I saw One and Two, so they will have to wait- I jump in one Three. I liked DW from the start, but it was with Jon Pertwee that it really came to be a show I loved, so it seems fitting.
