...he realized just how much he had become fond of the pair of them...

I've been reading through the Doctor Who Target novelizations in broadcast order, and I've just finished The Chase, Barbara and Ian's last adventure, which seems like a good place to pause for some thoughts.

i did my best. i hope that you remember me fondly.

A couple days late, but the world is terrible enough, I don't see the harm in postponing the end of something that's all sweetness and light for a couple days.

"you just want to get out of writing a real episode." "that's what i'm saying."

It's official, Girl Meets World has been canceled by Disney after three seasons. :(

In the immediate wake of this news is this week's episode, if it can be so called, "World Meets Girl", part clip show, part Q&A, part fan appreciation, part behind-the-scenes special. It's a very sweet hour of TV and I admit I got teary-eyed, particularly over the spotlight on fan BFFs at the end, but I don't have much to say about it? It's not part of the narrative, in any case, but absolutely worth a watch if you like getting emotional over children's TV. (I do.)

There are only two episodes left of the series.

I'm getting emotional about it.

Yuletide stuff

This is kind of late, given that reveals happened yesterday, but I was originally intending to read through the whole main archive before posting. Given that I am so far only through the Is in the fandom list, if I waited to get through the whole archive this would get posted just in time for next Yuletide.

So instead I'm just going to say that you should check out Opportunity, the absolutely lovely Within The Wires Hester/Oleta fic I received -- it's mainly a character study of Oleta post-Institute, and it's eerie and sweet and wonderful and everything I could've asked for.

You should also check out St. Cedd's Most Wanted, a Madness treat I received for the Dirk Gently series, concerning Dirk Gently, Richard MacDuff, and their university days; it's adorable and perfectly in-character.

(Also, I wrote three fics: It's Only The End Of The World, for Constantine (TV) and set during the apocalpyse; Kissing Don't Last (Cooking Do), for Monstrous Regiment and concerning Shufti (and her feelings for Polly); and Life Doesn't Discriminate (Between Sinners And Saints), for The X-Files: Deviations comic, about Samantha Mulder's life in the wake of her brother's abduction. So, you know, those exist.)

It was an excellent Yuletide and I still have more than half of the main archive and virtually all of the Madness archive to read through!

but everything begins again, too. and it's always happy. be happy.

Doctor Who 10x00 The Return Of Doctor Mysterio )

And then there was the season 10 teaser.

I hope someone somewhere on the Internet is breaking it down/has already broken it down into its constituent parts because between the glee over sustained Bill footage and the way it was edited I'm sure I missed most of it.

But, dude, seriously, BILL. I'm so looking forward to her and finding out everything about her and seeing what she and the Doctor are like together.

I'm ready for the change!

I am one with the Force. The Force is with me.

I got to see Star Wars: Rogue One today!

I also managed to see it relatively unspoiled. I had seen the various trailers, of course, and also the headline of one article that said "how did they manage to pull of that last scene?", but otherwise, I knew very little about it aside from the obvious implied by the premise.

Spoilers under the cut.

Rebellions are built on hope. )

I'm running out of words.

I wanna see it again.

i don't know anything. ever. it's actually quite relaxing.

Oh, so I've been watching BBC America's Dirk Gently series, which had its third episode this evening.

It's actually quite good so long as I completely ignore the fact that it's supposedly a Dirk Gently adaptation, but every once in a while my brain reminds me and then I can't enjoy it for several minutes until I manage to ignore that fact again.

Which is to say that it is an astonishingly terrible adaptation but a really fun and unusual supernatural mystery series with a really well-done structure.

So, I guess, kind of recommend?

At some point in the near future I'm going to do a post summing up my feelings on all the new shows I've started watching this fall. Probably.

(Current NaNo wordcount: 14,576. I only did ~2K today. Which still puts me ahead, so I'm refusing to feel bad about it.)
