tellitslant: river & eleven back-to-back flirting (dw - river/eleven - make me)
I would like to have comments to make on Let's Kill Hitler, but I am too busy loving Alex Kingston in all things. Pls check back later.

(how is she EVEN.)

I am trying to figure out how I feel about The River Song Reveal behind the cut )

Also, not only did I think in the middle of the ep that they had basically just made my Stormcage fic perfectly canonical, I was not the only one. :D :D

Actual post about the episode eventually, really.

I am taking a brief break from my thesis in order to bring you this extremely important message:

Title: and I will stop for you
Author: [personal profile] tellitslant
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: River Song (River/Eleven)
Rating: T
Warnings/Spoilers: Mild spoilers for 6.01-6.02.
Word count: 1500
Summary: River knows a bit of anticipation does wonders for the sex life, but she's getting tired of having to take matters into her own hands while waiting for the Doctor.
Notes: This was sort of inspired by a long-ago conversation in the comments of [livejournal.com profile] nostalgia_lj's Eleven fic The Soloist. It is also written in the spirit of May, the Merry Month of Masturbation.

excuse me for I am the ocean / and I will stop for you / will you know how to stay brave )

Title: Aftermath
Author: [personal profile] tellitslant
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: River Song, various OCs
Rating: G
Warnings/Spoilers: Mild spoilers for 6.01-6.02.
Word count: 2000
Summary: The Stormcage guards know by now that they have as much chance of keeping Doctor Song locked up as they do of waking up to blue skies over the prison. That doesn't mean they don't try... but they've developed a coping mechanism, too.

Meanwhile, back at Stormcage... )

Under the cut: discussion of costume-spoilery set pics that have been surfacing from the filming of (apparently) 6x13 and that may be of interest to those of us who have been invested in the linearity of the River/Doctor relationship.

spoilers! )

DISCUSS.

I know, realistically, that curly hair is not always as soft and fluffy and innocuous as it looks and it probably takes fifteen different products to style it and is actually stiff as cardboard but NNNGH, RIVER SONG'S HAIR. I have no rational response to how pretty it is. *dies*

Aherm. I talk about other things under the cut. Like how fantastically disturbing this ep was. )
tellitslant: river song being a badass (dw - river mf song)
I have so much flail I need to post about it quickly before I re-watch and get an actual coherent commentary out. Also I watched it on iPlayer and the stream wasn't that great so I want to see it in higher def. But a couple things I cannot hold back on.

two not terribly plot-spoilery things and one slightly spoilery River-related thing )
tellitslant: (dw - river/eleven - yes)
I said a lot in my original reaction post about how I was afraid the show might be doing bad things to River. Here, for a change, is a bit of an analysis of a scene that emphasizes all the things the show is doing right with River and how I hope this will hold out!

Bless. )

DOCTOR WHO!!1!

This is the season of "...and how did they get that past the censors?" I'm so used to innuendo that it wasn't till I was going to sleep that I really twigged quite how salacious some of that was. Well done, the Moff!

I mean, seriously... )

I cannot wait to see the end of this, and I'm probably going to hold out on that before I think seriously about the story, but I hear huuuuuge amounts of it echo throughout the season, so. Excited. (And unspoiled, mostly, fyi.) Very happy to see this back on my screen. :D
tellitslant: (dw - river/eleven - yes)


THAT IS ALL.

Off back to jolly olde this evening. I have a crappy seat (row 37! DNW) but with any luck I will sleep anyways. Wish me no crying children and I shall tweet from the other side. I should probably go pack now.

I am still trying to finish my year-in-review post, omg epic fail. Is it still worth posting, or should I just get started on next year's? ;)

Today, among other things, [personal profile] jae and I had an erotic roll, complete with ecstacy sauce. None of that is a euphemism. I believe [personal profile] jae has pictures.

*

I'm not generally an audiobook person, but I think I might make an exception for this version of Rebecca read by none other than Alex Kingston. And for only a tenner! Well, okay.

*

I have been working my way through the 1970s-era Wonder Woman (for work! no, really.), specifically the period where she's been de-powered and made to put on a rather ridiculous costume that does at least come with pants... I'm having a bit of deja vu with the current storylines, shall we say. The 70s version is getting a little tiresome, too. However, I do like the classic Dick Giordano look better than the artist on the current book who can't decide whether Diana is a C-cup or an F-cup from panel to panel.

*

Speaking of the dissertation o'doom, I have entered the phase where I turn to self-bribery to push through. First bribe: once I finish this chapter I am allowing myself to register for [livejournal.com profile] vidukon! I will probably feel a little silly being a non-vidder at a vidding con, but [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_llin and [livejournal.com profile] carawj are going, plus I hope to carve out time for some serious River Song geekery with [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria... yes? :D

I finally got to the Art Gallery of Alberta yesterday with my mom, and we had a great time. The main exhibit was Edward Burtynsky - Oil, which was really fascinating - especially as, for those of you who don't know, Alberta has huge oil reserves in the north of the province, the extraction etc of which are the source of much political and economical discussion. It was definitely a thought-provoking exhibit, and do click through and take a look at the gallery on the site - just remember we were seeing the photographs on canvases of several feet tall. We also had a nice lunch and a lovely conversation. I refuse, in self-defense, to talk about myself while my stepfather is in the room, so it was good to have a chance to talk to her while we were alone. ("We should do this more often!" she said afterwards. "We actually get along!")

*

In separate conversations with [personal profile] jae today, we talked about a) her new Kindle and b) my struggles not to buy physical copies of stuff that I can buy digitally, given that I don't know where/how often I'll be moving in the next few years. It wasn't until well after I left that I put together my complete inability to not buy books with the portability of an ebook reader. No, really, I have been so resistant to the concept (because it's not a book) that it took this long for me to figure out how it could actually be useful. Now I want a Kindle, dangit, but of course there's no way one will ship to me before I leave, and they're way more expensive in the UK. I may see if Chapters has any Kobos in store, just to take a look at, but the Kindle reads a lot more file formats, plus I would want to be able to read journal articles on it. I knew I would give in sometime, but this is a particularly inconvenient sometime!

OK bedtime.

Guys, I FUCKING LOVE how many of you have posted about the Doctor who series six trailer going, "OH WOW, I bet [personal profile] tellitslant just fell OFF HER CHAIR!" It's nice to have my fannish predilections known. I mean, I'm so subtle about them.

For the record, at no point did I actually fall over, although there may have been bouncing and clapping and squeeing and this bit right here might have actually been making me flush: not really a spoiler, but a gif, of what I'm sure you can't guess ) I am, however, excited about basically EVERYTHING that was in that trailer. So much flailing, and I am looking forward to it immensely.

Speaking of Alex Kingston, my Yuletide is MADE. I got TWO Treats, for the very first time ever. The first one, waiting, is a lovely and evocative Batwoman haiku. The second one is a Hope Springs fic. Yes, I got an Alex Kingston source for Yuletide omg omg squeeeeeeeee. Dreams is a pre-series Ellie and Hannah vignette, and it's awesome. I am so thrilled about everything I got, and my recipient liked both his/her fics, and, yay.

I haven't actually read much of anything besides my fics, but I am going to settle in this evening and do some serious reading.

And remember, guess my fics and win! Some of you have left comments/kudos on one (or both) of mine, so I know you're reading... :P

Notes: So [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria made me a lovely River/Doctor vidlet to Captain Tractor's "1000 Goodbyes" and I said I'd write a ficlet in return. This plays with themes of the song and the vid, so I suggest watching the vid first and then reading this! :)
Summary: For every hello, there's a thousand goodbyes.

My very dear Yuletide Writer! Let me blather on at you about what I like!

I like awesome women being awesome. You may pick up on this based on my requests. *g* The canons I'm interested in here have done such amazing jobs giving us strong, flawed, interesting, multi-faceted women that I just want more of all of them.

I like dark fic and happy fic, sexy fic and gen fic, backstory and future-fic, as long as it is in character and in keeping with the feel of the canon. (I mean, you can do happy fic in Secret Six, but it's a very different kind of happy, you know?)

I have tried to give several varied suggestions of what I might want to see in each fandom; what I don't want is a fic that tried to cram them all together into one by flitting about from scenario to scenario. I would much rather see one idea developed than see someone try to pack everything into a thousand words!

I love stories that flesh out moments in canon, giving us a look at the background we knew was there. I like plot. I like getting to know more about characters who have fascinated me for some reason, and findint out why and how they fascinate other people. But mostly, I like that you're writing a story about one of these texts that I love, and that it's for me!

Fandoms: Batwoman, Hope Springs, Secret Six, The Good Wife )

Basically, thank you for writing for me! I will most enjoy something that you enjoy writing, so I hope you have fun with my requests. :)
tellitslant: (dw - river/eleven - yes)
OH
MY
GOD
SQUEE

So instead of NaNoWriMo, [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria is doing National Vidlet Making Month, and I prompted her for a River song vid with a few options from my personal River fanmix made up of songs by Canadian artists, and ANYWAYS, LOOK WHAT SHE MADE.

Yes. It's a River/Doctor vid to "1000 Goodbyes" by Captain Tractor. :DDDDD



It is an absolutely gorgeous and heartbreaking vidlet and I love it. :DDDDD

GO HERE TO DOWNLOAD IT AND TELL HER HOW AWESOME SHE IS.

SO MUCH AWESOME.

First, and briefly, because I so don't have the time to outline all the awesome: The Good Wife. This week's episode, man, amazing on so many levels. Why is everyone not watching this show? Also, DAMN, red is really Alicia's colour. I would like them to do more episodes where everyone is in formalwear.

Second and more importantly, however, [personal profile] zulu wrote me more fic! The Circumference of Comfort is Doctor Who, River/Amy, R, and AWESOME. It gets points for being adorable AND points for not trying to pretend Rory doesn't exist! Now the fic I owe in return will have to be particularly fabulous, but I'll worry about that later and just enjoy this now. Go read, and tell her to write more Who stuff! *g*

And now bedtime so I can get up super early, which is not awesome, but oh well. :D
