Chester Bennington

1976-2017


I just heard about it this morning, and...goddamn. It's just heartbreaking. I can only hope that Chester finds peace where he couldn't in life.

The Randomiser: The Myth Makers

I wasn't really sure what to expect from The Myth Makers going into it. I have a fairly low tolerance threshold for so-so comedy and, while it has a good reputation, it is also Doctor Who attempting comedy in the 1960s and I had not been overly impressed by The Romans.

Actually it is surprisingly good )

I would genuinely love to see what The Myth Makers actually looked like. Doctor Who so rarely whole-heartedly tries to do comedy and this has some great dialogue and comic moments. I would have liked to see the actors faces as the lines were delivered. Watching telesnap reconstructions of old Doctor Who is definitely a fans-only past time, but if you feel up to the effort then I would say that The Myth Makers is more rewarding than many.

The Eater of Light

purplecat: Twelfth Doctor and the number 12 (Who:Twelve)
[personal profile] purplecat
Three formative things from my childhood/teenage years: The books of Rosemary Sutcliff, the folk-music inspired output of Clannad, holidays spent in Scotland.

To be honest, I also rate Survival pretty highly, so The Eater of Light would have had to try pretty hard for me not to love it. I'm not sure I can even remotely claim to be looking over this story with an unbiased eye. I loved it a lot. It does reassure me that The Teenager also loved it however, despite considerable sceptism about Rosemary Sutcliff (occasionally I give her the books, she tactfully ignores the gesture), and no memories of Scotland (or Survival).

She does like Clannad though, but I'd argue that the music here, while definitely folk-inspired, is not particularly Clannad-ish.

Spoilers under the Cut )

I loved this. It hit me in all my nostalgia weak points and handled this particular TARDIS team, which I already liked, perfectly enough to convert me from well-disposed to a fan. The Teenager said she thought it might be her favourite Doctor Who story. I'm not sure I'd necessarily go that far (this is no Blink!) and I'm almost frightened to see how it would stand up to a rewatch because I'm very aware that external factors were effecting my ability to think critically about this. But on a single viewing, I'd say it was my favourite Twelfth Doctor, Bill and Nardole story.

Title: Freefall

Summary: In a galaxy where Finn never rescued Poe, Poe ends up doing the unthinkable.

Prompt: Free Space -- Darkfic

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Call this a personal challenge to myself to make something involving Poe and Kylo...well, dark. I don't know if this is dark enough, but hopefully it works.

Also special thanks to delisalicious on Tumblr for helping me.

...and anyways, I figured that I'd post this meta as a favor to a friend. People of Dreamwidth, my f-list...well, I guess I shouldn't be dramatic. I'm writing a bit of a meta on Darkpilot.

So yeah, thoughts? Comments? Disagreements? I'm definitely interested.

Give me a fandom, a character/pairing, and a cheesy cliche, and I will write a short fic. The cheesier the cliche, the better!

I'm exhausted and fussy as hell today. I've been I'll since last week and it's been especially bad since Tuesday. I had a migraine, then post migraine nausea and now the migraine has rebounded back.

My icons have gone down. I want to cry. I'm stressed and numb and I want to get lost in fiction. But it's time to make lunch and I have things to do and I wish I had a time Turner.

Reading, Listening, Watching

Reading: Still Crime and Punishment. I have reached part 2. I'm finding Raskolnikov, the protagonist, somewhat irritating though, unlike Anna Karenina, I assume this is deliberate and much of the book is intended to be a study of poor decision making, its causes and effects.

Listening: I've come late to The Ood Cast, currently in a fore-shortened form as "The Ood One Out". It is a little self-satisfied, but it is interesting to hear a fan podcast where most of the participants are professionals and so mingle skits and songs with episode discussion. I don't think I shall go back and listen to the back catalog, as I have with some other podcasts, but I've been happy enough to listen along to the Oods reactions to the latest season.

Watching: B. is away again and G. and I do not currently have a watching project. So there hasn't been a lot of watching this week.
