Happy Birthday Doctor Who!

Hello my fellow Whovians!

There’s no need to explain why I’m FINALLY blogging today. It’s a momentous occasion for the Whoniverse and all in it. 🙂

IT’S THE 50TH ANIVERSARY OF DOCTOR WHO!

*yay*  (to put it lightly since it would be nearly impossible to express how excited I really am about it.)

Today is the day to don our fezzes, light up our sonic screwdrivers, adjust our bowties, tie our converse on and eat fishcustard– with a banana of course (what’s a party without  a banana? that’s right! not a party at all!)

Even though this is the day the fandom is exploding like Van Gogh once predicted, I shall not be entirely joining you all on this shindig.  (which makes me really sad).

Why? might you ask am I not joining with the festivities?

Well, I bought a ticket to go see it in theaters on the 25th, and I’m not going to let myself get a single drip or drop of a spoiler. Meaning that I won’t be talking about it with the rest of you when it happens and I’ll be in a lag sort of stage when I finally get to say my own thoughts about the whole thing.

But I’m still really excited and I find it really difficult remain sane over the next couple of days.

On the up side though, I’m going to go see it with my brother who I don’t get to see very often, and really, the only other avid Whovian in the family! we get to fangirl/boy together! YAY!

So, I shall bit you all farewell until the 25th when I will come in screaming with “ASDFGHJKL;”  and “I CAN’T”s whilst dancing in circles.

Farewell my friends!

I’m sorry I can’t join you on this epic thing. (it makes me sad, really) just promise not to have figured everything out by Monday and be done with the excitment. Ok? ok!
Until then, goodbye!

 

 

The Clock Struck Twelve

“You’re late.”

“A blogger is never late, she blogs precisely when she means to.”

*ahem*…

*shyly waves and cowers from behind a corner*

Hi-ya…. so… I’m a just a little bit late on the whole new Doctor thing…. Let’s just say that I was trampled by so many people and fangirling that I have just now recovered and that this is the first time that I have been able to blog… yep. that’s my story… and I’m sticking to it.

In reality it’s a horrible sickness I have called procrastination *COUGH COUGH* excuse me.

 

So, now we all know who the twelfth Doctor is, Peter Capaldi… wait.. was it Cavaldi? no it was Kigali… bah.. whatever. we’ll have fun with this name.

Anywho… can I just say that I’m really really excited about this fellow. I have high hopes for him, he’ll be fantastic!

I’m super excited to see what kind of Doctor he will be. Although I have really enjoyed the spunk and spontaneity of the two previous regenerations I’m looking forward to a more serious fellow, someone who might be a little more stable. I think he’ll still be his usual fun and clever self, but on a much lower tone, where he may not be obsessed over bow ties and fezzes I think he’ll have his own dry fantastic humor oozing out all the time. I kinda picture him having a lot of sass… kinda like Nine, but maybe not quite as lonely and dark (after all Nine had just committed genocide on two different species. that would make someone a little grim…).
Something I really want Twelve to be like is a sort of father figure, I mean, we’ve always known that he’s been a father and that he had a family at one point, but we’ve never seen the fathering side of him. I think that it would be really sweet if he was someone more dependable and protective for Clara as more of a daughter instead of a possible love interest (which has been the Doctor’s roll for the past few faces).

I must say this is very exciting for me! I’ve never been caught up in Doctor Who when something big like this has ever happened! It’s positively wonderful to be in the madness with everyone else as it actually happens.

Another thing I’m looking forward to is Moffat’s writing for the Doctor (oh, the genius!). Moffat has an entirely new game to play, a new character, a fresh page that’s very different than before.  He’s gonna do a great job!

Overall, to me, things are going wonderfully!  I’m very excited for the future the show and fandom,

I would love to hear what you all think of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, now that the dust as settled and things are clearer.

Until then, toodles!

A Forecast for the Upcoming Weekend in Whovianland

Well, well, well
“The clock is striking twelve” and fandom emotions are currently pretty quiet, but there seems to be a stirring of excitement and electricity as the weekend approaches. Why might you ask?
The new face of the Doctor has been found and will be revealed for the first time this Sunday.

I must say, I’m quite excited, but I’m also a little bit nervous. The fandom is on the edge of explosion. This is the calm before the storm. Enjoy these last few moments of peace before everyone explodes into their rants of excitement, nervousness, hatred, love, dread, admiration, of the new face of our beloved Doctor. (I also don’t think it would be too much to expect another wave of sorrow and mourning for Smith. *sobbing*)

The overall forecast for Whovianland: Expect some bumpy weather in the next few days, Friday should be pretty still, Saturday, expect a few early showers of excitement and anticipation, mixed with anxiety. Sunday, well, get your umbrellas out cause it’s gonna be a stormy day. Buckle your seat belts and get your typing fingers ready  to shoot out your own thoughts of the new face as the news is spilled and everyone’s ideas pour out onto the internet. Good Luck.

If you want to hear it for yourself, here’s what BBC America has to say.

Geronimo!!

PS. I have one last parting thing to remind you all of.
Remember: No matter what face the Doctor has, he has, and always will be the same Time Lord we all love and adore. There may be several faces, but it’s the same hero. All regenerations are generated equally. Love the Doctor. Even if you may not love the face of the Doctor at this exact moment, or the one you see on Sunday, just do your best to simply love just the Doctor, because that’s who we all love. (and eventually, this new face will probably snatch your heart away at some point in the future anyway.)
In Moffat we trust.

Clara Oswin Oswald and Professor River Song

Hello! It’s been a very sad week this week knowing that there won’t be another episode until November. *sob*

But cry no more, for I have a little post that can entertain you for a tiny bit of the long time we all have for the rest of our answers which will only be half fulfilled with more questions thrown on top. (oh the joy.)

This is something I thought about after watching The Name of the Doctor, I was thinking about Clara and River, I began to realize they have a lot in common, enough things in common that I wrote them down and decided to write them down again for all of you!
beware the feels though, I had a few when I was writing them down.

The similarities between The Impossible Girl and the Impossible Astronaut…

  • They both have sacrificed themselves out of love for the sake of the Doctor, and almost dying in the process just to be saved by the Doctor in the very end, if anything just “for the hell of it”.
  • Both show up in the Doctor’s life completely out of order, scattered, making them complete mysteries to him.
  • They both love the Doctor, and the same love is returned (in the form of flailing first kisses).
  • River and Clara save the Doctor countless times, over and over again.
  • The flirting never stops.
  • Neither does the extreme cleverness,
  • or the witty humor and constant nicknaming.
  • Neither of them really know who they are without the Doctor. They wouldn’t be the same without him.
  • The only constants in both River’s and Clara’s lives (other than the Doctor) is their parents and the love they have for them.

I thought these were interesting things. I got stabbed in the feels though when I thought that the only stable things they’ve had is their parents, but even then, that was rough. The poor women. I love them both so much!

I hope you found these interesting, I know I did.
