cosmic_celery: (DW: 6 Mark of the Rani: School Chums)
Oh, I haven't made a post at my proper journal in a week. Well, here's a post to rectify that.

Also, a quick pimp for [ profile] brb_gallifrey since we're talking about Mark of the Rani this week!

Things that have happened in the past week:
- I've filed my FAFSA (free application for student aid), so I should know within the week what sort of aid I get, if any. I hope I get something in addition to the fee waiver, since I really don't have money to be buying books and things.
- I made my mom's boyfriend upset enough to leave the house after I yelled at him for suggesting that gay people are more likely to become homicidal lunatics than straight people. The whole situation was not good and I've reminded myself that I need to stay logical when people push my buttons instead of storming off in a huff.
- In related news, my mother said "You don't really want a rainbow umbrella, do you? People will think you're gay." GAH. Seriously, mom? Grow up.
- On a lighter note, I got some fabric:

That's some Hawaiian shirt fabric for my Six vest (still need to get a couple more in the right colors) and some gingham for adding to my shirt. I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to do that part yet, but I'll figure it out.

I found out that, according to Big Finish, I take my tea the same way that the Sixth Doctor does (milk, no sugar). I am amused by this.

Comic and art under the cut... )

First, a question: Do you think that a story can be successfully written from the POV of a character's stream of consciousness? I was playing with the idea, but I'm not entirely sure if it works. I don't mean just first-person, I mean actual head-speak if you will. Maybe this would work better with an example? Here's a bit of what I've started writing for my fic in which the Sixth Doctor thinks he has a secret admirer: )


And speaking of Six, I've just started RPing him over at [ profile] brb_gallifrey. It's a fun community, and neat to have a character interacting with real people as well as other characters. Everyone should stop by, especially since I'm running the Six weeks in the Classic Who watch-a-thon! No treats to anyone who guesses which episode I'm picking first - it's too easy.


And a meme:

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on...

My interview... )

So, I'm riding in on the tail-end of this five things meme. [ profile] pimpmytardis gave me these things to elaborate on:

1) Six/Rani

Cut because I rambled... )
2) Knitting and the Season 18 scarf in general

I've been working on my Season 18 scarf since around January, and so far I've gotten this much done:

This is my second project, and my last project was a scarf as well, so I still have a lot to learn about knitting. I'm thinking about knitting Romana's long, white scarf. That might be a fun project to practice stockinette with. Hopefully I can work my way up to sweaters and hats and things. Maybe I'll try socks soon! Goodness, isn't knitting exciting?

3) the Super Writing Challenge

Last year I forget National Poetry Month, which is April. A lot of people take the opportunity to write one poem a day for a month, which is a great writing challenge. But, since I forgot about it, during May I issued my own challenge. The challenge was to do one creative thing each day...a poem, a short story, or a comic.

Of course, in the end, I did a few things and then ended up making up the rest with haiku, but I still think it was a great idea. Maybe again this May?

5) [ profile] socal_who

I created this with [ profile] urchinmoppet on a whim, to see what chance there is of getting Whovians in Southern California together. I hope something comes of it, or at least it will be a convenient place to talk about the next Gallifrey One. I'm not sure how much use it will be to me personally since I'm a bit of a hermit, but maybe I can get over that if it means being able to ramble on about Doctor Who in public sometime. =) Flisters, if you're in Southern California, join up!

If you're observant, you'll notice that there's no number four. Number four was "Owen love" which I'll have to talk about later because I want to do him good, analytical justice.

Per request, my Six/Rani fanmix:

Was rummaging around on [ profile] dwcanon_fodder and found this. Besides being an awesome description of the Doctor's bedroom, it totally confirms my belief that Six likes toy trains. I feel totally vindicated that my RP Six is more in character than I thought he was.

"The scene was unfilmed so this is in no way canon, but Robert Holmes did write a description of the Sixth Doctor's bedroom for the script of Trial of a Time Lord:

Like the rest of the TARDIS it has the usual roundels covering the walls. Unlike the rest of the time machine it is in total chaos. In one corner there is an unmade bed. On a massive bookcase there is a selection of books: wax tablets, greek scrolls, ancient, fine leather bound volumes, Modern hard and paperbacks, etc. Like the rest of the room there is no order to their arrangement. In one corner there is a workbench covered in tools and furturistic engineering "work in progress". In another there is a flashing belecher beacon; a set of british traffic lights (circa 1935); a collection of lamps used to indicate "roadworks in progress" and a London Transport bus stop.

Also spread around the room is a collection of "antique objects gathered from different periods of Earth's history, which reflects the Doctor's interest and number of visits to that particular planet.

This is mixed in with a mass of objects gathered from his other various alien adventures.

Resplendent against one wall is a huge, beautiful roll-top desk. Somewhere else is a selection of weights and other bodybuilding equipment covered in dust and (for the fun of it) cobwebs. Against another wall is a massive american refrigerator, the sort you can store several oxen in. Round the floor is an elaborate train set in perfect working order.

The camera comes to rest of the Doctor, who is lying on the floor holding a feather duster. He is having great fun with the train, but as far as we can see the feater duster has seen very little service.
