Just wanted to say sorry about that. I've been pretty busy. I've been working on math, French, etc. Also I realize that I've fallen majorly behind on my watching Doctor Who Season Eight -- I was intending to get back to it, but things kind of got in the way. Fortunately, I've gotten relatively back on track. Caught up with the Doctor Who episode "Listen". How was it? Really, really good! Highly recommended.

So overall? Awesome episode. Definitely one of the best of Season Eight so far.

I've mostly been busy and all. College courses have been pretty tasking and I've been trying to keep up. That and I've been working on my stories. But I managed to get around to completing Season Eight ever since last year when I caught the Season Eight premiere, "Deep Breath". I watched "Into The Dalek" and "Robot Hood".

How were they? Well, I have mixed emotions.

So overall? I recommend them. Not as much as other episodes, but I still recommend them.

This was a pretty special episode, really, considering that before it aired, we had a bit of a pre-showing with Chris Hardwicke (who I can't say I was very familiar with; it wasn't until later I realized, "Wait, I saw this guy in Rob Zombie's Halloween II!" Yes, I watched that movie; don't judge me. XD), who gave us some background on the previous doctors, which was really neat (I think my only real gripe was that they skipped Five and Six when discussing the Doctors, as well as the War Doctor, which was kind of weird) and it was pretty cool seeing him in general, just how excited he was about the season premiere. Wil Wheaton was actually on there too to sort of speculate about what kind of Doctor Twelve would be, and he kind of expected/hoped that Twelve would be a bit more alien in nature, etc. Which, I don't mind my more human-ish Doctors -- Ten is one of my personal favorites, after all, and I would argue he's the Doctor with the most human qualities -- but I can see his point. And we got a glimpse at some interviews with Jenna Louise Coleman and Peter Capaldi, which was also cool, discussing their dynamic, working together, etc. (Also, Peter Capaldi's really kind of soft-spoken and polite and really laid-back. It's pretty unusual considering how vibrant his Doctor is) And the viewing experience itself was enjoyable; I mean, there were the damn commercials, but I guess it's something you have to live with when you're watching something live on television. (They're showing more interview stuff at eleven, but I'm thinking I need to go to bed later. I already fucked up my sleep schedule by staying up until two in the morning; I don't need to fuck it up further)

As for the episode itself? Well, it was weird, I will freely admit, but overall, it was pretty enjoyable!

Adventures in time and -- spoilers! )
So overall? Great episode. Definitely recommended. Is it perfect? No. But it was still very fun to watch.

And I better get some sleep. Night, everyone.

Where do you see the Doctor in the new series?

In which I ramble. )
ladyofleithian: (Writer in progress. Don't interrupt.)
Captain Grumpy, or, as he's come to be known, The War Doctor.

In which this gets longer than I ever anticipated. )
ladyofleithian: (christmas)
...and it was a great episode, but sweet Christmas (pun fully intended) was it emotional.

Adventures in time and -- spoilers! )

So overall? I loved it. It had problems here and there, but overall, it was an amazing episode and a wonderful send-off to Eleven. I'm going to miss him, I really am, but I am definitely excited for what Peter Capaldi has in store for us.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
ladyofleithian: (christmas 2)
Mostly on my mom's insistence. We were intending to watch it earlier and stuff like that, but let's say that real life stuff got in the way. Anyway, how was it? It was really good! Loved it. :)

Adventures in time and -- spoilers! )
So overall? It was fantastic. Definitely recommended.
ladyofleithian: (never would)
So, I just watched Night of the Doctor…

…and holy fuck. Holy shitballs. I mean…holy fucking shitballs.

Adventures in time and -- spoilers! )

So yeah, it was a great minisode. It really makes me all the more excited for “The Day of the Doctor”, to be honest. Well done, Steven Moffat. Very well done.

Because really, I think just about all the entries on this list are beautiful. Seriously. And they really sum up why the show is so awesome -- its faith in humanity, its compelling storylines, and a lot more. I think without things like that, I don't think Doctor Who would have gotten this far.

TITLE: Looking In All The Right Places

SUMMARY: Chloe Webber never expected to see the Doctor again.

PROMPT: Job-related trauma.

DISCLAIMER: I own nothing.

AUTHOR'S NOTES: Call it a plot bunny that popped up after watching "Fear Her". Hope this is decent at any rate.

Title: I'm Lost And I'm Found

Summary: The man once called the Doctor attacks Earth. Clara is traveling to gather an army to take the Doctor down, and meets former companion Martha Jones, who is already treating the victims of the attack. Bit of past one-sided Doctor/Martha in there.

Prompt: Miles From Anywhere

Disclaimer: I own nothing

Author's Notes: Exploring more about John Hurt!Doctor. Title from "Hungry Like The Wolf" by Duran Duran, which featured in the Doctor Who episode "Cold War".

Title: Facing Fearful Odds

Summary: In the early months of the Year That Never Was, Harriet Jones continues to endure.

Prompt: Unexpected Consequences

Disclaimer: Sadly enough, I do not own DOCTOR WHO.

Warnings: Dark themes, and getting Harriet's voice wrong, no doubt.
And rusty writing skills.

Author's Notes: Title from Thomas MacCaulay's "The Lays of Ancient Rome", from the poem "Horatius": "And how can man die better/Than facing fearful odds/For the ashes of his fathers/And the temples of his Gods." Also known as the poem Mr. Jefferson quotes in "The Impossible Planet" after Scooti's death. Considering "Last of the Time Lords" in general and how passionate Harriet is about defending Earth, I thought it was very appropriate.

Currently doing okay, really. Actually, I'm doing brilliantly, I think. Had a good day with a friend, for example -- went bookshopping with her, bought some new books, including THE MISTS OF AVALON, the novelization of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, a book on writing fiction for the twenty first century, and the first book of the DARK TOWER series, THE GUNSLINGER. (The most surprising thing being that my mom did not freak out at this because when I was younger, she would never have let me buy a Stephen King book. Then again, considering that I had trouble sleeping even hearing about the premise of the story CUJO, she was probably right) Overall, a success. (Well, other than leaving my fanny pack at her apartment, but she managed to call me in time so I could go back and retrieve it)

Also, got THE SNOWMEN (finally!) on DVD. How was it? Honestly, excellent! Can't believe I missed something like this!

So overall? Loved it. Very much recommended.
