So the new Doctor is female! I am so delighted. I honestly suspected they would tease us with this all season and then chicken out when it came to it. But they've gone ahead. Assuming we stick with the female Master, too, then the m/m ship that my teenaged self grew up with is suddenly a queer women ship, and that is very exciting!

So what I'm hoping is that the new showrunner will also not be useless, and I can fall back into this fandom.

So I slept like four hours, which was terrible, and I am very tired. Also right on the edge of getting my period, so extra double tired. Which led to at least one totally pointless emotional crisis. But that was like an hour ago, and then I angstily bashed at the piano like a teenager, and we're good now. XD

Other than that, I went to fight with bureaucracy, who have decided I've been studying for too long and don't get student support payments anymore. This is apparently fixable, if I send them my transcripts to show that I've been doing things all this time and not just...fucking around? But anyway it would've been nice if they'd warned me that this was coming up before they cut me off. Oh well, can be fixed, and they'll backpay me for the gap, probably, so all okay. Just a pain.

I looked on my AO3 account, and the last fic I posted was in April, so I guess it's about time for another one! I am obliged to do a NYR fic on account of being a disorganised mess last year in Yuletide and failing to default. I still gave my recipient their fic, but I submitted it after the deadline, so I have to write a NYR fic in order that I can participate again next year. So when I am home from ballet tonight maybe I will take a look at the prompts and see if I'm inspired.

On an aside, let me mention my deep investment in the next Doctor being female. Teenaged me imprinted on the Doctor/Master relationship super hard, and I am very keen to have the flirtatious animosity but between two women, because My Ship But Queer Women sounds like a delightful thing. If I could be bothered I would go dig up that MY BODY IS READY gif for this, but I am lazy, so just....imagine me tearing off my shirt to reveal incredibly chiselled pecs.

So I have found myself talking about Doctor Who several times in the last week or so - mostly anguished and emotional conversation about what we would want from the Time War and about the delightful fucked-up Doctor/Master situation, and anyway, we are maybe planning to do a bit of rewatching.

So I am intrigued to see whether what worked so well for high-school me will hold up to the adult version, who is probably more discerning and maybe has less time for angsty manpain (I might by deceiving myself about this; it may work just as well).

Anyway, reports to come on that.

In other news, I missed nominations for Yuletide, but I'm assuming there'll be enough I'm interested in to sign up anyway.

I am already late with this, but hey, it's still December 3rd somewhere, right? My first post for the December meme. Thank you [personal profile] melannen for such an excellent topic!

So I was torn for a while between writing a list of things I would enjoy in the next season of Doctor Who, and going all out and writing an entire plot. I discussed it with my sister, and we went for the latter. The short version: I like Time Lords, stand-alone episodes, Romana and Doctor/Master interactions. The long version is under the cut.

The silliest Doctor Who season we've had in a while... )

If you still want to prompt me something, I've got lots of space left, and the link is up there at the top of the post.

Thank you!
