The thing is, that the entire concept of Doctor Who as a whole is pretty much tailor made to arrow directly for my deepest fannish needs and wants. And when I first found it, through New Who, it played on enough of those aspects to suck me in hard...and I don't want to undersell that it did that. Because it did, even setting aside my ginormous crush on David Tennant (which is, and remains GINORMOUS, regardless of any unresolved issues I have with Ten). But there were things that I wanted from it I wasn't getting, and more things that would go on to be actively upsetting to me in a way I didn't like at all. Because I was in love, I turned to old school Who as well. And there! There were other things I wanted and needed, just for me. And I fell in love all over again. Something from this Doctor, or that era that hit the spot and there I am like...you know when puppies get so excited that not just the tail, but their whole rear end starts wagging? Like that. Put it all together and there is no question that it is the show of my heart and will continue to be for...well, ever.

And now we have Eleven. Where I am, and this is kind of amazing to me, suddenly getting the most (though not all, I think that is impossible for any one Doctor or era to do since what makes it the thing that it is, is so HUGE..and we're dealing with modern media which comes with its own set of inherent problems and whatnot) of what I need and want in one place at one time that I've experienced so far. And there's a thing I finally get. Eleven is my Doctor.

Before it was always like, well Tennant brought me in and I love him so he gets that special place of 'mine', but Seven is my favorite of the old school Doctors to watch, and Three's lacy cuffs and cape flips are like one of my favorite things in the universe, and so on. But I don't think I ever got that sensation of this pulling together of elements of this thing which I love on a grand scale into one place at one time in a combination that is...mine. Hell, I don't even know if it will stick, if it will keep aiming right for my fannish sweet spot and hitting. But oh, it's kind of glorious that it is.

In conclusion, <3 Eleven. My Doctor. Not because I love him more than the rest of the Whoverse combined. But because he is that moment in time when I feel the closest...to ALL of it (which is, I imagine what most people feel about their Doctor). Thus concludes my fannish sappiness for the day.
Seventh...ish? in the Eleventy Project. *facepalm*

Okay, I need to explain what happened here. See, I was still sad about the probable lack of vid this time out. And I'd been thinking, it would at least be fun to take the obvious (*points to song*), cut down a minute or so of it, and amuse myself for a bit. So when I got home late yesterday I started a project file. There's only one problem with this. And that is that when, somewhere around 3 am, you start to take Corey Hart seriously. Okay, maybe you only ever take Corey Hart seriously if you live in my brain. Yeah. By the time I came to my senses, it was pretty much too late to do anything about it if I wanted to have anything up this week. And I know myself well enough to know that with the Vividcon deadlines coming up on top of the next Eleventy Project starting today...it was this or nothing, and I was less okay with nothing than with public humiliation. I type all this up so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not to skip this entirely. You probably should. I DONT EVEN KNOW. Feel free to mock, should you be so inclined. You probably could not be more wtfed than I am. At least there is actual literal wearing of sunglasses at night? Yeah, I'm...gonna go pretend this never happened now.

Doctor Who fandom? Don't make me come back there. What the everloving fuck. *dives back to safe little pile of sane people*

For future reference, a few things that are not feminist:

1. Slut shaming. No, not even if you couch it in concern that wearing short skirts sends the wrong message that women are whores. And they shouldn't be sexually confident lest people think they are whores. Or act in any other whorish way that only whores would act, and if they'd just act like proper ladies you wouldn't have to go around pointing out their whoredom. ESPECIALLY THEN.

2. Insisting that women who are smart, confident and proactive are unrealistic. Dismissing every single female character exhibiting such traits as unrelatable/smug/too much. Perhaps the word you're looking for is uppity? Bonus points if you immediately start falling all over yourself every time a male character exhibits such traits.

3. Pretending you are engaging in feminist critique if said critique only magically appears in relation to one specific showrunner, show, and his specific characters, and gleefully ignores either the broader context of media as a whole and/or the rest of the show's run. Clue: Media is steeped in sexism. All of it. Yes, even that thing you like. It's a tangled, complicated mess that is broader and deeper than which flavor of it entertains you more. Hint: petty nitpicky bashing of female characters as a method of critique? Not helpful. Ever. And please see number one again. Memorize it.

I really hate people. Except you guys. You guys, I love.

I have no idea if I'm going to be able to pull a vid off this week. I know I say that every week, but this time it's way truer than all those other times I was flailing and giving up. Honest. I've got my song and my project file all set up, I'm just...not getting anywhere. *pokes timeline with a stick*

Unrelated because the vid in question is not going to be about this, but I wish to talk about it. Y'all know how I am anti-OTP? How the mere mention of soulmates and 4Evah and demanding that any certain characters have to be together makes me throw up a little in my mouth? Yes, well, I am now vomiting at myself. Because somewhere right around the time spoilerish for 5x06--Amy's choice )

Started on this week's Eleventy Project and now I am whining a bit to the internet because let me tell you...spoilers for this and last week's Who )

::waits patiently::


a lotta capslock reaction behind the cut for DW 5x04--Time of the Angels )
Internet, I have a problem. I have no idea if I ship Eleven/Amy or not. This should not be a problem. You know me, I ship everything. And I love them both, separately and together, just about more than I've loved anything in a long time. We're talking Tennant's fashion choices and Hugh's shaved head level of love here. I REALLY LOVE THEM A LOT, OKAY. So what's the problem here? behind the cut for vague episode reference )
