shinyjenni: Martha and Liz from Doctor Who, with the TARDIS and a Christmas tree in the background (martha liz christmas)
Here are some of the fics I wrote for this year's [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking! I've been going back and forth for days on whether to post them separately, put them all in one post, not post them at all, or put up a sort of links list once I'd put them all on AO3 and/or Teaspoon. (This is the sort of thing I worry about. This, and WHAT IF THE HOUSE FALLS IN ON ME???? That sort of thing. Anyway.)

Notes: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 and [livejournal.com profile] ghost2 for beta reading! The first paragraph refers to Grace's appearance in the DWM comic strip, though you don't have to have read that to understand this. General Kramer, mentioned later on, is from Vampire Science. And the Scully references in the second paragraph are lovingly stolen from Angel.

shinyjenni: Polly and Ben at the TARDIS console, black and white with a hint of reddish pink over the top (polly and ben)
Have had two weeks of lectures so far! Am enjoying them, though have not quite settled in yet. We are expected to do a lot of extra reading, but I am not quite sure what to read (it is not like English where it just goes: "read book/play/poem, read books/journals about said book/play/poem, go hmmm for a bit, move on with your life), so there is a fair bit of reading ejournals at random and going AAAAARGHHHH. But I got some books out of the library last night, which is a very reassuring thing to do, I find. One of this term's two modules is a management one and my coursework is to write a report; I have no idea what to write it on AAAAARGHHHH. Well, that is not quite true, I have ideas, but they are vague and amorphous (and possibly unworkable), so I need to catch one and pin it down. WITH PINS.

I am THISCLOSE to finishing a fic (which I have been thisclose to finishing for about a year, I must admit), so this seems like as good a time as any to mention again that I have a beta filter where I post nearly-done fics in the hope that anyone who is passing by and in the mood for some betaing will have a look at them and point out all my terrible errors. If anyone would like to be added to it, just give me a shout - I would be very grateful! It is not what you might call a heavy traffic filter, as you can tell by the fact that this is the first fic I have even come close to posting to it all year. (Yes, I completely flaked out on my tardis_bingo fic. And I still owe people stuff from [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. OH SELF.)

Dear people who walk two abreast along narrowish pavements: if someone (ie me) is walking towards you, you might want to think about activating single file mode, since the other person cannot in fact get any smaller. Hope this is helpful! Love [personal profile] shinyjenni
shinyjenni: Susan and Ian looking at a giant ant (susan ian bug)
Vid not-quite-insta rec: Change of Time by [livejournal.com profile] greensilver (Doctor Who; spoilers for all of season five) I just watched this last night and it is BEAUTIFUL; the way it flows and builds is so wonderful, and I love how full of hope it is. It also made me cry a whole lot.

(Speaking of vid recs: I have been meaning for a while to make a massive recs post of the many fantastic vids I have saved on my hard drive - would anyone be interested in such a thing? I fear being a) redundant, since most of the said vids I have found in other people's rec posts and b) not being able to say much beyond WATCH THIS IT IS ALL GOOD AND STUFF.)

*

I have not written any fic for ages, it is terrible. (And I still owe people [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking fics, argh.) Apparently I have FOURTEEN unfinished fic drafts lying around staring accusingly at me. Obviously the correct response to all this is to sign up for Doctor Who Fic Bingo. Here is my card! I am very pleased to have UNIT in the centre square; getting something not-doable there would have stymied many possibilities for bingo. Having said that, I might try and write something for the second line from the bottom - I've just read Legacy of the Daleks, which ends with (skip) Susan nicking off with the Master's TARDIS, thus opening up a lot of possibilities. I also like the look of the diagonal running from bottom left to top right. And the second vertical column on the left. And lots of the other squares. Have I mentioned I'm terrible at decisions?

shinyjenni: Wonder Woman deflects bullets with her bracelets (lovely merlin team)
Merlin was proper good this week, I thought. HOWEVER. spoilers )

(I did not watch The Waters of Mars; I find it much easier to be zen about New Who if I don't watch too much of it, also I cannot stand Ten. I watched The Sontaran Experiment instead, which was not that great but anything featuring the Four-Sarah-Harry team is A-OK by me.)

I worked on Saturday (and also ended up doing the late shift on Friday night), which was actually quite good as it was blowing a gale and tipping down with rain, so it was nice to be somewhere warm and dry. And when I arrived on Saturday morning there was a Mysterious Amazon Parcel waiting for me. "Strange," I mused, "I don't remember ordering anything. Am I maybe ordering things in my sleep now? That is not good." But it wasn't that - it was in fact a present from [livejournal.com profile] sparra and Mr. [livejournal.com profile] sparra (squee, thank you!)! So that was a v. cheering way to start the day. And then I checked my email and found my invitation to the Archive of Our Own had arrived! (I was 18th in the queue, hence the speediness.) I haven't done much with it yet apart from upload my fics and look around a bit, but it is so pretty and user friendly and well organised! I LOVE IT.

- Sign-ups are open in this year's [livejournal.com profile] dw_femslash ficathon, yay! I have not signed up myself due to inability to write shippy fic, but I am looking forward to seeing other people's fic (and also am totally willing to beta read/cheerlead for other people if any of you so desire!).

- I watched the first episode of the new BBC version of Emma last night, impressions rather than spoilers, but I like to err on the side of lj-cutting too much rather than too little )

- Tonight is FlashForward! I wasn't completely hooked by the pilot but I was intrigued enough to watch again. see above cut text )

- Yesterday I went round a bit of the Windmill Hill art trail with Rhiannon and Simon. Saw lots of art and jewellery and hats, plus got to nose around other people's houses (it's a sort of open house arrangement, people show their stuff in their living rooms), which is always fun. Didn't buy any art due to EXPENSIVENESS, but I did get a pretty pendant, which I am wearing right now.

- Quick question for people who subscribe to Big Finish's monthly range: have you had your Paper Cuts and Blue Forgotten Planet CDs yet? The downloads were out ages ago but mine haven't turned up yet :(
