Grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

(I'm at Starbucks and I have four books that are equally near... *reaches randomly in purse*)

"He had seen no pools or streams anywhere."

From Doctor Who and the Sontaran Experiment Target novelization. :)

Cross out the ones you've read, if you read it in school bold it first.

Yeah there's a lot I haven't read. I stick to more scifi. Plus, 1984 I tried to read but I got so disgusted with it I couldn't finish.

And I haven't gotten all the way through Lord of the Rings. Yes I know I'm a bad geek. But Tolkien is like Shakespeare - I need to really focus on the language and I haven't had time for that kind of focused reading of late.

Day 30 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

I've been procrastinating on this last day of the meme because frankly I'd run out of ideas for the "Whatever tickles your fancy" days (srsly there are too many!)

So I've finally decided, I'll give y'all a preview of a Doctor Who story I'm working on right now (first fic I've written in months actually, I've been running up against horrid writer's block). It's just the start of it, and I don't know when it'll be done because I'm still trying to figure out the full plot but I've been dying to share it. :)

From the mind of a knitter... )

I've got a little more written than that but this is just a teaser ;) Let me know what you think of it so far!!

Day 29 – Who You Think Should Be the Next Doctor

Oh I don't know... I'd say Peter Wingfield but we all know the Twelfth Doctor has to be practically in diapers. ;) I have no ideas.

Day 27 – An Episode You Wish Hadn’t Been Made

Does Torchwood count? Cuz I wish all of series 3 hadn't been made. Poorly written absolute trash. :(

For Doctor Who... there's really not much I don't like to be honest! "Love and Monsters" is about the only one I really don't like, and even that one has some redeeming qualities (like Moaning Myrtle... I forget the actress' real name but when she opened her mouth I was like "OMG MOANING MYRTLE!").

Day 26 – Favorite Who Actress

This one's easy -- hands down, Catherine Tate!! She is AWESOME! I love Donna's attitude, the fact that she has NO PROBLEM telling the Doctor off, she packs like me, and OMG in Journey's End when she did her Doctor impersonation, EEE! :D

Plus everything else I've seen so far of her has been amazing. Her Nan character is just too hilarious for words, and scarily is just like my Nana is starting to become. The "Nan's Christmas Carol" special she did this year was the funniest thing ever!

Not to mention, I heard one Doctor Who audiobook she did and she's so great with the different voices! There were a couple characters in there where I momentarily thought I was listening to a Big Finish audio and there was another actor in there. She's that good!

So yes, I am a TOTAL Donna fangirl, and Catherine herself outside of Who as well :D

Day 25 – Favorite Who Actor

Geee I don't know. *looks at userpics* Could it be the handsome former Time Agent Captain Jack Harkness?

Yes I'm a huge John Barrowman fan. I love him, I love his family (I've met his parents & sister who are all wonderful), I love his character.

After John it would have to be a close tie between Tom Baker & David Tennant. Though Matt is really winning me over more and more (he's so cute!!!)

Day 24 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

I'm running out of stuff that tickles my fancy so I'm gonna open this up.

Suggest audiobooks, Big Finish audios (cuz they're totally a different thing than just audiobooks y'know), fanfics, websites, etc to me!

I haven't been reading much fanfic lately but I could use some good fic. Tenth, Fourth, or Eleventh Doctor stories; or Jack's Coat/Doctor's Coat porn (there's not nearly enough of that out there!); or total crack!fic.


I'm gonna go get some soup and hope it helps clear this stuffiness. Evil sneezing!!! :(

Day 22 – A Who-Related Fan-Site

Hmm... I already posted a link to Witty Little Knitter, my fave Doctor Who scarf site...

So I guess instead I'll point out Life, the Universe, and Combom, which I haven't been keeping up with very well lately but is a great source for filming spoilers and the like :)

Day 21 – Your Doctor Who OTP

Hmm... guess I don't have an icon of it, but Jack/Ten/Donna/Ten.5.

Yes I'm weird. :)


(Canon OTP? I'm a total slobbering Janto fangirl, plus I adore Amy/Rory and I do enjoy Four/Romana)


ETA: I was so tired when I wrote this I totally forgot my favourite crack pairing: Jack's Coat/Ten's Coat! (yes I found a fanfic that had them making out and fell in love with that pairing)

Day 20 – The Character Who Is Most Like You

Hmm that's a tough one. I'd have to say Toshiko. Whenever I take those "Which Torchwood character are you?" quizzes, I get either Jack or Tosh or sometimes half & half (I srsly did in the one from the magazine). I tend to be quiet when I'm not in cosplay (I used to be worse! Most of y'all didn't know me when I was little miss super shy), and I'm pretty good with computers. Not Tosh level of genius, but I have managed to disassemble and reassemble a laptop and have it still work afterwards ;)

Day 19 – The Scene That Made You Cry the Most

Spoilers if you haven't seen all of series 4 New Who or series 2 and 3 Torchwood )

Day 18 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

Hmm... well since today (well, technically yesterday now) was Big Finish Day and I splurged on four Doctor Who audios from them, let's make this a Big Finish post! I'll talk about some of my faves, and if you like Big Finish please tell me what ones you think are good so I have ideas what to grab during the next sale or at Chicago TARDIS!

So anyway that's a selection of audiobooks I like! Tell me what else is good and I should start looking for! (I do have a bunch more that I didn't list here, because they weren't spectacular or I haven't listened to them yet - there's about *counts* wow, 34 audiobooks in my iTunes that I haven't listened to yet, most of them Doctor Who).

Now that I'm back... time to return to this!

Day 16 – Your Favorite Who-Related FanFic

Oooh that's a tough one. I have to give two and they're really series rather than single stories.

[livejournal.com profile] faithharkness has a whole AU, the Hannah-verse, that I adore. Grace is the main story (which is long but OMG so worth the read! Trust me!!!), but it was the list fics of everything Hannah learned working at Torchwood that hooked me initially. I don't even remember how I stumbled on them but I just remember reading the list going "Who is this Hannah character? I love her, but seriously why do they let her answer the phones?" :) Read anything by [livejournal.com profile] faithharkness, you'll not regret it!

My other pick is Children in Time by [livejournal.com profile] huskyfriends. And the sequel Children Through Time that's still in progress. Yeah I'm a bit biased considering Lynnae is totally based on me and I also have helped brainstorm a lot of what's in that series but it's still an awesome book. The first book was written for last year's TARDIS Big Bang, the first part of the sequel for Scifi Big Bang, the second part for this year's TARDIS Big Bang, and she's doing the rest for Torchwood Big Bang. It's again a very long story (the first book is over the 80K mark) but SOOOOO worth it!

Perfect timing, I hit the halfway mark before going offline for five days! :D

Day 15 – Favorite Who-Related Tumblr

I really haven't spent much..okay, ANY, time on Tumblr but I stumbled on this the other day and it's great!

Stupid Faces of Doctor Who

It's all goofy pictures of the Doctor (in all his incarnations) and companions. :) Wonderful time waster!
knitchick1979: Drawing of Philip from Kamen Rider W transforming with the Heat Memory. (Don't blink)
Day 14 – The Villain Who Scared You the Most

The Vashta Nerada. I think mostly because I am a librarian, I work in a library, and when the lights went out at work the other day my first thought was "OH NO THE VASHTA NERADA!"

Doesn't take much to freak me out ;) especially when it's Moffat's writing. He's too dang talented!
knitchick1979: Drawing of Philip from Kamen Rider W transforming with the Heat Memory. (Default)
I really need to stop forgetting this... it's gonna take me a month and a half to finish this, especially since I'm gonna be offline Wed thru Sun!

Day 13 – Your Favorite Villain

Ooo that is a toughie. The Master is awesome, especially Ainley and Simm (my two fave Masters!) and for that matter, a whole lot of villains are great.

But I'm gonna have to go with the Daleks. I just love them so much, even if the "cup of tea" line in Victory of the Daleks totally ruined their killer image ;) But I love the new Power Ranger Daleks (see icon), and yes, I've knitted enough of them to be a fan.
