the table challenge of deeeeaaaatthhhhCollapse )


Also if anyone knows anything about coding and can tell me how to make the table background opaque that would be awesome. Cos I don't wanna change my layout for a table. I'm too lazy for that.

So I've been thinking a lot about this prompt on the b_e anon meme - are we allowed to talk about prompts? I guess so, this isn't fight club I think, also it's not really an 'I claaaaiiimm thiissssss you guiz' thing*, so I can't see it being a drastic problem. (also I think maybe aralias did it once and she's like, one of the pillars of fandom, so it's totally ok right?) But anyway I'm very surprised how much it's caught my attention, and I want someone to fill it a lot.

My brain immediately jumped to Eight/Roberts, which I think I might sketch either way because I just want Eight on a spinny chair and accidentally making his computer explode and the Master being very very puzzled and yet intrigued. Which are all within arting parametres, so I can do that. But people should write fiiiiic, like Four being an artistic consultant for Ainley's thriving business of some kind or One having to go into the family business because he's incapable of holding down a job that's what you do and being introduced to his brother's star employee. Ok, that's just me wanting an excuse for Brax/Doctor office interactions. (Um. Not slash. Incest: I don't ship it.) But clearly Five and Ainley would be Epic Boardroom Rivals with their vying presentations of ... stuff. Or stock brokers. (I am hampered here by not really knowing How Business Works) and Three and Delgado need to run/work in a business/division together. Being biffles.

I feel bad leaving Crispy out, but I don't know how not to do the trite 'I am the head of a business empire who was in a horrible skiing accident and I see such potential in you and we are going to have a doomed romance where I teach you to harness your unpredictable genius and succeed in business and probably I will die at the end.' Which would be unsatisfying.

Anyway, I like the consultant idea enough that I'm using it again, because the War Chief needs to be the head of some division in the corporate empire he works for and he needs to bring in Two to .... idk. Be scientific advisor? Advisor for Awesome? To defeat a rival in winning some contract and then their methods clash and. Yeah. Alternatively you can have Two as the slightly out-of-touch, older, yet incredibly loyal 'has-been-with-the-company-forever' middle-management dude who has a young, up-and-coming employee/external consultant assigned to him to help spruce the place up because THEY DON'T WANT TO FIRE YOU TWO BUT YOUR OLD-FASHIONED WAYS ARE LOSING THEM MONEY. And then conflict and awesome and so on. And it may sound strange but I want something to play on their apparent ages a bit with those two, because one of the nicest things about WC!Master is how hungry he is, he's incredibly ambitious and cocky and very very young and it's awesome. And people should do things with that.

Um. There's been lots of 'no YOU'RE the boss!' types here, but Six and Ainley should clearly have equivalent positions (that they're both very good at) in the same department. Except Six is always going on about his TORTURED ARTIST temperament and is a touch offputting, which normally I wouldn't go with because I think he probably could have a lot of friends if he wanted to, but it's more important to have Ainley be really friendly and gregarious and funny and friends with practically EVERYONE. Of course he'd also be a touch of a bully, and Six would be one of his biggest targets in a 'oh isn't he a weirdo' lulz around the water cooler. And then, idk, Six has a really cool absurd sekrit hobby, like Amateur Mime Shakespeare - totally into it, wears black and white and paints his face and does INCREDIBLY OVERDRAMATIC MOVES EVERYWHERE in total deathly silence, and bursts into shouting as soon as the scene's done 'WALLACE! WHAT HAVE I TOLD YOU WALLACE! MORE LIFE! OPHELIA SHOULD HAVE VIM AND VIGOUR!' Clearly everyone in the troupe would be terrified of him, because actually he and Ainley are not that different, but also sort of adore him because he is a Passionate Artiste yo. ... I don't even know where this would end up but I've seen enough romcoms to know that clearly it would be hilarious in every single way. Clearly.

Dear God what is wrong with me?



(No really, it's a show about a dude with a magic police box! WHY DO I WANT TO STRAND HIM SO MUCH.)



*well I think I might end up doing something for it but it's an art response which, when it's me and not someone else, I don't think of as a real response. And someone should do more art/fic for this. Is what I think.

I think I'd be much more likely to watch Downton Abbey if the whole show was done to the music in these trailers.









I mean not these specifically, but really cheap, crappy, fast pop. Because apparently combining that with period pieces is my new kink.



And now I'm going to see if I can find some 1995(!) P&P mvs to sate this desire.



ETA: Not exactly what I was looking for, but I got distracted by Thor MVs so whatever. And I do like this song.






ETA2: Right, I think I've worked out what it is, because it's not like fandoms I actually fandom in where it's got to be appropriate or crack and anything else makes my brain hurt. No matter hooowww many times I watch that P&P video I cannot analyse it at all, so I'm supposing here that for some things the combination of eye-candy and ear-candy is enough to send me into a bliss-coma, no matter how incompatible on the surface.


I have no problem with this.

OK I haven't actually seen it yet but I kept misreading 'The Rebel Flesh' as 'The Rebel Fish' and I suspect I was having the entirely wrong idea about what this episode is going to be about.

A little bit sad forever, everyone seemed to love the last episode and I ... thought it was ok?


I keep doing these late and they're all kind of negative, it's a touch awkward really.Collapse )


And I didn't even mention Unregenerate until just this sentence I am so proud of myself the end.

I know we have new who in a day but I just couldn't let the clusterfuck that was last episode go. Word of warning - this reaction post really, really long. I mean really long. I sort of just intended to make a few points and then came to paragraphs later.


Mostly it's about the giant giant plot holes in... anything we've been told about the Silence. Also a reaction to people comparing Seven to Eleven cos while in the past I've enjoyed that now I find it both sad and inaccurate. Spoilers. Obvs.Collapse )

* Easter was cool (happy Easter y'all). Spent the night before with my dad and family going out to Thai for my sister's birthday (her third party, last week we did a play and dinner and drinks with friends on Friday night, and a family dinner in the Telstra Tower rotating restaurant Saturday. Pretty rad.) Afterwards she, Dad, my cousins, my uncle and I had a crazy singalong for a few hours, anything from childhood stuff like My Grandfather's Clock and Two Little Boys to Rocky Horror and Meatloaf. Because we are just that cool.

* Realised my brother had never seen Rocky Horror. Had a movie night on Easter night to rectify this. Also watched Buffy the movie, Donnie Darko, Cruel Intentions, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Good times.

* Made brother have Easter hunt on Sunday morning. WAS AWESOME DON'T EVEN CARE. Chocolate also tasty.

* I am ready to enjoy New Who again. (Spoilers, obvs.)

* Got awesome mugsCollapse ) Picked them up at the ABC shop the other day on a random find, they've had the Four one around forever online but this is great. Mah two favourite Doctors, so beautiful. Admittedly Three is a bit .... not Three-ish. But I love that phrase no matter how cliche it's become, and it has Delgado. Oh merchandising, support my ship forever plskthnx. Also Seven is snappy. (They also had a Five with Cybermen and 'sum of his memories' but ... not my Doctor.)

* I finally put up a link to the b_e Table Challenge (no longer ongoing is it? IDK) just for my own reference. Does anyone know how to make a table background opaque? I fail coding forever.

* Oh my god you guys know that bit at the end of Survival Cut for spoilers. Can we still have spoilers for Survival? I think we can.Collapse )

* Have been kind of depressed. Am getting over it.

Tu: I really wanna go to Athiest's Club but it's on at the same time as SciFi.

Me: Did they not think there would be some crossover between those two groups?

Tu: I know! Sometimes I just wanna get the two together and have us all watch the Star Trek movie where Kirk kills God.
