Oh Hi...

I am still binging DW - old-skool and New - and one of these days I'll write about them...

But in the meantime, with all the fun and games with photobucket I started weighing my options. This included a little archeology, namely investigating all the things I abandoned on gdocs when it turned to Drive and got bad. Apparently, I abandoned a lot. There was even ready to post fic and fic that is partly done and stills speaks to me enough to maybe get finished.

Two fics have gone up on Ao3. I'll either link them or post them here shortly. And also I realized pathetically I never added my only long-fic, Laughing at Stars, to my masterlist. So that's done (at least on LJ - my masterlist on dreamwidth is just the import with LJ links. One of these days I'll fix that.) But today I uploaded Stars to Ao3 and spend the rest of the day wrangling artwork and formatting. X_X


And on a side note- does anyone know what's up with TSP? They've been down for over 24 hours now. I was in the middle of rereading a very long fic series.

Britbox

Well Big Finish has sucked me back into this fandom. Yay? What can I say, I can't stay away.

So because I love a good survey and have been on BBCA panel forever, I got invited to beta test Britbox. I wish I could have given them rave reviews, but it was thoroughly underwhelming. (I made it clear in their market testing surveys that I considered a no-Doctor BBC/BBCA streaming service a deal breaker.) And low and behold when it debuted guess what? No Doctor Who. No sci-fi at all. And no anything I'd ever heard of either - aside from Absolutely Fabulous and Are You Being Served. I can see better BBC stuff on Netflix and frankly on my DVD shelf. And I then I found out ITV was part of this. Where was all the good ITV stuff? I mean - The Thunderbirds, The Avengers? And not my thing but come on- what about The Saint and The Prisoner?

But if you love Britain's Most Boring Documentaries (Planet Earth? Hahaha, no), or lots of soap operas and a bunch dramas so slow they are rated an insomnia cure, you are all set.

And on that note you know what else it lacked? One single kid's show. Even Netflix has offerings like The Sparticle Mystery which is bad and kinda does everything wrong, but hey, it's offered.

So I made all this clear in my beta panel surveys and I was ready to hit cancel the second my 90 day beta ended. (They were launching at the point and it would cost actual money.) Then I guess they heard the boos and just before the beta ended, they added classic DW and Red Dwarf. (I'm not a fan of the latter but Junior is.) So DH and I decided to let it ride a month and see what happens. So to make it worthwhile I needed to start watching DW. It was on Hulu for a while, but somehow all the ads made it unappealing. I'll probably be reviewing my rewatch here, because a lot of these are so much better than I remembered. It was hard work being a PSB DW viewer as a kid and knowing that watching meant you were plunking yourself down for 90 minutes of viewing while your Saturday morning ticked away.

So this turned into a bit of a rant so I'm going to shut up now. I meant to write just a short note that I was going to review the eps on my rewatch. So see you then.

How much do I love this little frog?

It's like being told off by an irate balloon.

Title: Fish Stories: Two Half Drabbles
Character/Pairing: Ten
Rating: G (may not be suitable for adults)
Summary: The Doctor is looking for a fun day.
Beta Unbeta'd, 'cause... yeah.
Disclaimer: Based on characters owned and created by BBC, used without permission
Author's Notes: Okay - this will take more words to explain than the fic itself. I was helping out at school and they were use the game "Fish Stories" to write a story. My son was having none of this so, I um, *gulp* introduced him to concept of fanfic and wrote a couple examples for him. (Yeah, I'm so going to the special hell.) The prompt works like: this pull six words (2 verbs, 2 nouns, 2 adverbs, 2 adjectives) and write a story about them. Since this is grade 4 a "story" = a paragraph plus a picture. (No, I didn't do the picture.) So here they are 2 pulls, 2 paragraphs. Prompts are shown before each.



clicky, click )
glory_jean: (love is)
