made by the lovely italian_jewels at LiveJournal.

nothing here might make much sense. except for the fandom & the porn.

some things are unlocked, others are not. there's no set pattern.

fic & related things are posted over in [community profile] herwildthyme, unless it's comment fic.

I don't like the word emo & I adore glittery things that aren't vampires. Here's my big damn fannish megapost.

& slash & femmeslash abound here. if you can't take these sorts of things, then perhaps you should be elsewhere.

(I like Tumblr + Twitter far too much.)

♥ I am currently losing sleep due to the splendour of the Karen Gillan tag on Tumblr. Karen, Karen, Karen! ♥

♥ & I felt like reviving this meme, because I've been listening to them nonstop for the past couple of weeks. & I did it on Tumblr as well & should probably let the love spill out over here as well. Chameleon Circuit are fucking amazing & I love them as much as any of my other favourite artists. They're just brilliant & adorable & so surpremely talented.

O, & everyone should go & look up their song Silence And The End Of All Things - a beautiful song for Amy & Eleven at the end of The Big Bang Two. I've had it on repeat for three days now & it makes me teary-eyed every.single.fucking.time. within the first minute of it. As soon as I hear 'when you wake up, you'll have a mum and dad, but I'll be just a story/that's okay/we're all just stories in the end/so live well and love rory', my eyes just fill with tears. It can be very problematic when one is listening to it on the bus, but that's what waterproof eye makeup & (stolen) designer sunglasses are for.

Answer the following questions using only the song titles of a chosen band.

I chose Chameleon Circuit.

1. Are you male or female? Kiss The Girl
2. Describe yourself. Teenage Rebel
3. What do people feel when they’re around you? The Sound of Drums
4. How would you describe your previous relationship? Silence And The End of All Things
5. Describe your current relationship. Type 40
6. Where would you want to be now? Gallifreyan History 101
7. How do you feel about love? Mr. Pond
8. What’s your life like? Nightmares
9. What would you ask for if you had only one wish? Travelling Man
10. Say something wise. Exterminate, Regenerate

Two & five were actually a lot harder than you'd think. I settled on my answer for five because I'm quite sure my laptop & I have a Doctor/TARDIS bond at times. & because the love of a TARDIS = better than any other kind of love. & I settled on Teenage Rebel for two because I'm just eternally seventeen at heart. & I was a girl when I learnt how to run. So there.

(& as for three . . . well, I probably scare people. & everyone who meets me probably thinks I'm straight-up mental & not in the good way. Too bad I'll never be as BAMF as the Master is. Ah, well.)

♥ I picked out my lesson books today & am going back later in the day to pay for them properly since I needed the barbarian's ident card. It's getting closer & closer, my return to lessons & to having to learn to (mildly) resocialise with people. It's making me feel stressy & slightly ill.

♥ Visiting my favourite uncle & his family for karaoke tonight! ::bounces:: I love karaoke, you know - it's my biggest guilty pleasure! As a former stage actress, I absolutely adore it, even if I can't sing.

. . . & the times we would have had now never had inside that box of bluest blue . . .

Stuff I get fannish over

Classic Doctor Who ⚛ Life On Mars ⚛ Age of Sail, specifically the Hornblower novels & films ⚛ Smallville ⚛ Firefly/Serenity ⚛ Sherlock (2010 usually) ⚛ Dead Like Me ⚛ Withnail & I ⚛ DCU/DCAU ⚛ Young Justice ⚛ Star Trek (the original series & the 2009 reboot) ⚛ Sailor Moon

There are numerous shows, books, films & such that I've been fannish about over the years, but the above are the most current & long-lasting ones. I drop in & out of them with varying degrees of intensity, but I love them all for the most part. I flirt with tons of shows & whatnot, sometimes flinging myself headlong into their fandoms, other times not. So the above is by no means an inclusive or complete list of what I flail over. My Tumblr (riverdresses, as always!) can always give you a good indication as to what's eaten my fannish little heart at any given time, however.


- I tend to avoid the new!Who fandom. I've seen it up through the specials, but the fandom that surrounds it often bothers me. I also prefer the classic series to the new series quite honestly.

- I have a ridiculous amount of love for the audios. Many a time an audio has caused me to flail, flop & squeak with joy, sadness, anger or WHAT WAS THAT OMG. The audios tend to be my happy place, especially if they involve the Eighth Doctor.

- The EDAs make my brain ache & my sides hurt from giggling at times. I read them for Eight, Fitz & Anji.

- I'm a very casual viewer of Smallville. I've seen all of series nine, some of series ten, & may one day watch series eight. I'm not going lower than that, however. I'm there for the Tess, Zod, Chloe, Lois & Oliver awesomeness.

- DCU-wise, I read/am catching up with/flailing over the Arrowfamily, the Flashes, Zatanna, JLA v3, Birds of Prey (the Gail Simone run to start with), Arkham Asylum (eternally), Black Canary, Huntress, Power Girl (FUCK YEAH KAREN STARR) & occasionally Supergirl. I'm also reading Batman: Year Two & Batman: Hush, along with way too many others to name. I also adore the DCAU likeomfg & have no problem fangirling it up down & sideways. Black Canary, Zatanna, Huntress & Power Girl are srs HBICs & for me, Green Arrow, the Flash & Red Arrow are my favourite BAMFs of the DCU. (YAY GINGERS!) I also have a hugely soft spot in my heart for Linda Park-West, Iris West-Allen & Lois Lane.

I'm not particularly down with the reboot, I have to say. No thankyou.

- I used to play in the Marvel universe. I don't any more, but I still know it for the most part.

- Crossovers are awesome. Doctor Who goes with everything. O, & so does Firefly. Well, mostly.

- The original Star Trek is my newest love, after many years of my friend [livejournal.com profile] sonicbookmark BEGGING me to see it. It reminds me of the classic series of Doctor Who at times! Jim Kirk is my fucking HERO.

- I recently started rereading the Sailor Moon manga & have fallen back in love with it. I'm making my way through the anime, yes, but the manga is so insanely richer than the anime ever was. To me, the anime just PALES in comparison.

- Crack is the driving force of EVERYTHING. Crack, capslock & .GIFs.

Theirloveisso . . .

One of my 2011 resolutions was to no longer have OTPs, but ship based on character. I did that before for the most part, but now I just apply it to all my future fandoms. Basically, if I love a particular character, I'll read just about anything featuring them if it sounds good. If I like it, I'll find more of the same.

I slash. I panship. I make couples, triangles, threesomes & whatever else interests me or makes me smile. I have my favourites, but I don't limit myself to them.

Fannish output

I used to write fic. I grew out of that, but I'm not above (very rare) comment fic or tiny snippets of things, not at all. My friends just do a better job of writing than I ever could, so I leave it to them.
I'd rather make fanmixes & occasionally add blurbs within the mix.

I also love reccing things. Reccing & linking is somehow a lot more fulfilling for me, which is pretty sad, I suppose, but it makes me happy & keeps everyone in porn & icons, so who can really complain? I used to make monthly rec posts, back when I was in larger fandoms. I'd like to try doing that again.

I used to try & make graphics. Now my graphics are limited to mix covers & very rare moodthemes.

I also love picspamming, though I don't do it as often as I'd like. I love picspamming my favourite characters, episodes, pretty people & ships mostly.

& lastly, I do love to RP. I don't get much of a chance to do it, it seems, but I always enjoy it when I do. I tend to play one or two characters period, but sometimes I include one or two more.


I love friending memes & I love hosting them!

Comment parties = ♥♥♥

I tend to lurk a lot, since I'm so shy.

Here we go! Here I am, kicking off my fabulous Sixth Doctor rewatch, AKA the technicolour dreamcoat extravaganza 2011! We're starting this rewatch-athon off not with the Sixth Doctor, exactly, but the Fifth Doctor serial Arc of Infinity which features Colin Baker in a pre-Doctor role & in fact, is what helped him land the role of the Sixth Doctor after Peter Davison's departure. I myself have never seen it prior to planning this rewatch-athon, so it should be quite an experience for me as well.

Following this serial, I'll be recapping Peri's recent Companion Chronicle, Peri and the Piscon Paradox, which features her travels with Five, just before our third serial, The Caves of Androzani, Five's final story.

Arc of Infinity )

Peri and the Piscon Paradox )

The Caves of Androzani )

& that wraps up the Five-era serials for the technicolour dreamcoat extravaganza 2011! Next week, I'll be watching The Twin Dilemma, Attack of the Cybermen & Vengeance on Varos! & next week, I should have my recaps up on Saturday, as per usual - this week was a bit of an anomaly, time-wise!

Elizabeth (Betsy). Twenty-two, almost twenty-three, but perpetually seventeen. Whirls back & forth between vulgarity & delicacies like a dervish proper & has been known to disappear for months on end. Worshipper of Carroll, devotee of Lovecraft & BPAL hoarder absolute. Destined for the madhouse.
