...when you're having fun.

I cannot believe I started this journal exactly seven years ago. And I remember the year I first started livejournal... It must have been eight years ago.

Huh.

Since everyone else is doing it.... Haha.

THIS times eleventy: Why Strong Female Characters Are Bad for Women

I want to send this to all the people who think that Uhura will only be a worthy female character if she gets to physically assault someone and politely gets out of the way of Kirk/Spock shouldn't have a boyfriend because relationships make her weak or somehow detracts from her awesomeness!

Thanks for visiting and for offering to write in one of my favorite obscure fandoms! Here are a few things I enjoy. I don't expect them all in the same fic, so whatever works for you:
- Banter
- Humor
- UST, I love UST, particularly with certain pairings where the participants haven't realized they're totally in love yet even if everyone else has. I wouldn't mind some resolution to the UST (a la porn!) but it's not necessary if it's not your thing.
- My favorite fics are marked on my delicious account if you want a sampling of the stories I enjoy.

Thanks again! I hope you enjoy writing! I can't wait to read.

WHY DID I LOOK AT THAT DOCTOR WHO SPOILER?! ARGH!?! You'd think I'd have learned by now. Oh well.

This is where I babble incoherently and link to things....

Disclaimer: I'm not a hard-core trekkie by any means, but I'm pretty familiar with a lot of the canon in a general sort of way. My parents love Trek and I've seen all of the movies and caught a lot of the television shows, although never in order and never on purpose (like, watching it when it's on or when someone else is watching it.) I've been slowly working my way through the Original Series because I was so hyped up about this movie and I'm going to continue that... but I'm by no means a purist and I've never really dabbled in this fandom either. But... the last part looks like it's changing because I'm obsessing over this film like crazy!

I took my Mum for Mother's Day and then saw it on Imax with a friend the other day. And I really want to see it again.... I NEED an icon stat! Oh the pain of having to give up one of my old icons...

Anyway, onto the squee!

FIRST!! Things I just unabashedly liked about this film (spoilers for the film, obviously) Can we say, 'I like this ship! Exciting!' )

SECOND! The 'ship that I never knew I wanted Soo much love and I didn't even know it )

THIRD The female character I never knew I wanted! Uhura, why are you so cool? )

And some links to cool things in this emerging/born again fandom:

The comprehensive news comm: [livejournal.com profile] trek_news

The shipper comm: [livejournal.com profile] spock_uhura

The kink!Meme that is awesome: [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink and a list of recs for Spock/Uhura form the meme.

And my newest OT3 obsession can be blamed on these two porny ficlets: first is here and the sequel

READ this post if you're concerned at all about the portrayal Uhura. This post is awesome for all sorts of reason, but mostly because I'm fascinated by analysis of gender and gender portrayals in science fiction and she goes there and is way more eloquent and well-spoken than I could hope to be on the subject.

Just wanted to pimp a couple of things that have come across my f-list.

A multifandom female friendship ficathon! It can be found here: [livejournal.com profile] galpalficathon This sounds really awesome. It's also called:

I Will Not Be Afraid of Women
A Female Friendships Ficathon


It's not your usual ficathon either, no sign ups or claims. You can submit prompts, like "Martha and Rose, a ball of string". Then, come posting time, you can take whatever prompts you want and have a blast. It sounds very cool.

The second one is for PIRATES!!!

It's [livejournal.com profile] merrypirates ficathon hosted by [livejournal.com profile] penknife Get your fix of PIRATES!

==

Also, can anyone help me find a FIC?! I don't even know how to search for it. The Doctor Who fandom is too large. I don't know how I ran into it originally.

ETA: Found it!! =)

Anyway, this fic is almost like a Family of Blood AU, but only in the sense that the Doctor forgets who he is and thinks he's a human man with a wife and children. Essentially, he's been kidnapped and people are trying to steal his brain in a JAR. And Rose, Jackie, and Jack are trying to rescue him, but him being an amnesiac isn't helping matters. Does this strike a bell with anyone?

In other news, I am watching Classic Who with Tom Baker and Lalla Ward. I love Romana II. Love, love, love. I also maybe want her pink coat. Heh.

Oh, it's been updated! How Rose Took Over the Universe

Also, I wrote a fic! I've been working on a prompt for the [livejournal.com profile] rose_lives Getting-From-There-To-Here Ficfest. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to beta?? I am looking for some constructive critique, some help on developing the themes, and the regular beta stuff (like making sure I stay in a single tense and that I make sense...) You can comment here if you're interested in helping! It's less than 4,500 words.

Found this by browsing [livejournal.com profile] who_daily and wanted to pass it along:

How Rose Took Over the Universe (part 1) by [livejournal.com profile] irishlullaby

It's funny, has pictures, and stars the Doctor, Jack, Mickey, and of course Rose. The screencaps are perfect and macros crack me up anyway.

Here's part two as well if you're interested. Keep an eye out for more.

EDIT: Links fixed. Apparently my html skills were a bit rusty.

Have been binging on everything Christopher Eccleston's been in lately!! We were sorely shorted when he opted to play Nine for only one series of Who so I've been researching what made him such an "unlikely... but the right choice" for the character (according to Julie Gardener and Russel T Davies).

So far...

Crackers )

Revenger's Tragedy )

Shallow Grave )

Our Friends in the North )

Heroes )

Still on the list: Othello, The Second Coming, Elizabeth

After much reading throughout the DW fandom, I've come to realize that opinions are sharply divided with regards to a certain episode. Namely, one of my favorites: "Girl in the Fireplace." I notice a lot of D/R shippers have a lot of hate for it, while others (often non-shippers) love it without reserve.

I personally love the episode, especially as a shipper. It's in my top 5 for Doctor Who episodes. And here is why:

my top 4 reasons to love /Girl in the Fireplace/ )

So... curious? Then please read on!

disclaimer: no offense meant to anyone or their opinion, this is just mine.

WARNING. Not dial-up friendly at all, lots of pictures

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey

1. List your top seven character ships
2. Put all of them in order of your love for them; 7 to 1, 1 being your main fixation.
3. Name the movie/show that they're in.
4. Supply photos for said people.
5. Tag seven people.

Here's my list. It's not in any particular order, other than the last three. I have a one-'ship at a time kind of brain, so that explains my number 1, but for the most part, I love my 'ships equally.

I am ridiculously happy with my new layout... It's by the talented [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal and you can find more layouts at [livejournal.com profile] refutare

I customized it to match the header I made. Pretty simple. Billie Piper is lovely. I stuck with a grey pallet because I'm still new to customizing CSS sheets and figuring out all the color changes was giving me a headache.

=)

I also made a second header. I love the original images. The colors are rich and I just LOVE the look on Nine's face in both shots. His eyes are almost always on Rose, in any incarnation. It makes my shipper heart sigh.

I finally caved to the advert gods. I wanted more userpics dammit. =)

I really miss my photoshop. I look at spiffy icons and want to get crackin'.

I was bored and thought "what better way of curing said boredom...?" A Picspam about Teyla. I dug through my harddrive and found these lovely images. Most of them are courtesy of a web group that's no longer available thanks to the bigwigs shutting it down. I'm blanking on the name of the site now.

Anyway... enjoy.
