Epic 'Doctor Who' meme ...  
1. When did you start watching?

March 2006

1a. Why?

I'd seen icons of Nine/Rose on my flist, recognized Chris Eccleston and when I saw the advertisement for it on the Sci-Fi channel, I decided to give it a shot since I lurve Eccleston. (If you really want to know my full Who journey, check out insanely massive Who post.

2. What was your first episode?

"Rose."

3. Which episodes have you seen?

Every new Who episode, and one Classic Who.

3a. Favourite?

I'm doing my rewatch-reviews which is really giving me a concrete idea of how much I like or don't like certain episodes, but I haven't hit series two yet, so I'm going to go with my favorite of the ones I've done so far and it's The Unquiet Dead.

4. Are your friends/family interested in the show?

Not in the slightest; unless you consider my six-year old nephew who watched "The Next Doctor" with me and thought it was "AWESOME!"

5. Which Doctor is your favourite?

Nine.

6. Which Doctor is your least favourite?

I've only really watched Nine and Ten, so by process of elimination, it'd be Ten, but I do love Ten.

7. Which TV companion is your favourite?

Donna Noble. (Rose is a close second.)

8. Which TV companion is your least favourite?

Of the main three from new Who: Martha Jones. From any of the characters who traveled more than once with the Doctor in new Who: Jack Harkness.

9. Do you listen to the Big Finish audios?

Nope.

9a. If so, which is your favourite?
N/A

9b. Also: which Big Finish companion is your favourite?
N/A

10. Have you listened to any non-Big Finish audios?
Nope.

11. Have you read any of the novels or short stories?
I just read The Stone Rose and Winner Takes All -- both by Jacqueline Raynor.

11a. Have you written any of the novels or short stories?
No.

11b. Which is your favourite?
Winner Takes All was wonderful; fabulous plot, completely in character, Raynor is OBVIOUSLY an Eccleston/Nine fan and I actually found it more shippy overall than TSR (although, TSR had two aspects that were ridicously squee-worth shippy).

12. Have you read any of the comics?
Nope.

13a. Which is your favourite?
N/A

14. Is there any particular episode/book/audio/comic you desperately want to watch/listen to/read?
I do want to read all of the Nine/Rose, Ten/Rose books and I may hit the Ten/Donna books as well.

Fandom

1. Do you write fanfic for Doctor Who?
Not yet, but I am working on a short one.

1a. If so, post a snippet of a work-in-progress (or several)!
"The point is that as a full Time Lord, I never really felt an overwhelming desire to have sexual intercourse, not that I didn't think of doing so with you, because I did. But it wasn't about finding my own pleasured release. No, it was more about what kind of sounds would Rose make if I licked her here or there? Would she scream, or quietly moan? And then of course, your orgasmic pleasure would be from whence I derived my pleasure. But since it wasn't an urge, per se, with me being a Time Lord, I never really thought about it much beyond the abstract. But now, yes, I really do have the urge. I want to shag you senseless, right here, right now."
2. Do you make Dr/Rose icons?
Yuppers.

2a. Let's see a sample!



3. Recommend a fanfic/icon/fanvid/fancomic/fancreation!
Were He Not Romeo -- butterfly just wrote this one and I absolutely ADORE it!

4. Have you been to any Doctor Who conventions?
Sorta. I went to Dragon*Con last August and there was a Who panel there. It was awful. They basically digged on RTD, Rose, the Dr/Rose relationship, all the while praising Moffat and Classic Who throughout the whole thing.

5. Have you ever dressed up as a Doctor Who character?
Nope.

6. Do you own any Doctor Who merchandise?
The books, and I plan on buying more, as well as the series 1-4 DVDS and the CD.

7. Are you a fan of RTD?
ADORE HIM! Check out my icon! :)

7a. Steven Moffat?
ABHOR HIM! Check out this post! :(

7b. Paul Cornell?
He's wonderful and I would have been THRILLED were he the one picked to run Who after RTD left. ::sniffsnif::

8. What say you to Season 6b?
Huh?

9. The UNIT dating controversy?
Double huh?

10. The Blinovitch Limitation effect?
I only think I know this because of other responses about "Father's Day." Uhm, I guess it makes sense?

11. Multi-Doctor episodes?
I'd KILL for a Nine/Ten episode. On the other hand, the sheer amount of squee I'd experience might likely kill me, but oh, what a way to go ...

12. What's your favourite Doctor Who technobabble?
Jiggery-pokery.

13. Have you watched other TV shows exclusively because of the presence of Doctor Who actors?
Hell yes.

14. Have you met any of the actors?
No.

14a. Traveled to any filming locations?
No.

15. What do you think of The Curse of Fatal Death?
Erm, is that the radio thing with Richard E. Grant?! I, uhm, don't.

16. Do you have any fannish opinions that you think are fairly unpopular?
My utter disaffection with Moffat; thinking that Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper have better chemistry than David Tennant and Piper; I don't like Ten's hair in series 4; thinking Donna's ending in "Journey's End" was perfect. Oh, just read my Unpopular Opinions post.

17. What's your favourite pairing?
Doctor/Rose. ::Squishes them::

18. What pairing(s) won't you touch with a really long pole?
Doctor/anyone not Rose -- ESPECIALLY Doctor/Donna! They are BFFs and like brother-sister, anything romantic is just nasty! Rose/anyone not the Doctor.

*gaawps at fic quote*. A lot of this meme was interesting, but I DEMAND THAT YOU POST THAT FIC SOON.

*grins*

Especially as you haven't written DW fic before; it sounds great xD
Arabian: Dr Who (10) - Kissarabian on January 9th, 2009 12:46 am (UTC)
It's really short, not a drabble or ficlet so much, but short. And it's not NC-17. But definitely is planned to have some hot moments.

I do have most of the dialogue written and the actions, it just needs to be majorly cleaned up. But I have some time off in the next week or so, so maybe I will. Maybe I'll write it then.
Roxie H.avoria on January 9th, 2009 12:48 am (UTC)
*applauds*

Do it! I'll be happily awaiting :D

Also, I've gone on a bitt of a comment spazz around your LJ. Sorry about that xD
postverta: i like itpostverta on January 9th, 2009 12:43 am (UTC)
I second that demand to see this fic! That snippet was HOT! :D

I would also like to add that I also thought that Donna's ending in JE was perfect, even if it was painful...very painful :(
Arabian: Dr Who (Ten)arabian on January 9th, 2009 12:47 am (UTC)
I'll work on it. I promise.

If you feel that way, you might want to check out my whole post on it, and feel free to add your own two cents.

1. PLEASE POST THAT FIC. =D
2. DEAR BBC:

"I'd KILL for a Nine/Ten episode. On the other hand, the sheer amount of squee I'd experience might likely kill me, but oh, what a way to go ..."

YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE.

LOVE,
THE FANS

I will work on the fic. I promise. I will.

Yeah, Nine and Ten together in an episode? I'd die of the squee.
faith5by5_1013: Doctor Who: Nine/Rosefaith5by5_1013 on January 9th, 2009 06:27 am (UTC)
I agree with almost all of your unpopular fannish opinions.

I have issues with Moffat, I've always thought Billie Piper has better chemistry with Christopher Eccleston than with David Tennant, and I thought Donna's ending in Journey's End was perfect (sad though). I did like Ten's hair in season four though.

Also, I'd kill for a Nine/Ten episode. And, yes, the squee would kill me too.

Hehe, Ten's hair, LOL! I know I'm very in the minority there. HAH!
faith5by5_1013: Doctor Who: Nine/Rose: Better With Twofaith5by5_1013 on January 9th, 2009 08:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, you are there.

I'm just surprised to find that I'm not the only one who thinks BP has more chemistry with CE. Most people seem to have completely forgotten their chemistry, but (at least at the moment) I can't think of two actors who have more chemistry than those two.
Arabian: Dr Whoarabian on January 9th, 2009 09:05 am (UTC)
Oh, their chemistry is AMAZING. So sizzling and hot and just WOW! There is no way that Ten/Rose would have happened without Nine/Rose, no way. It was the Doctor as NINE that Rose fell in love with; and it was NINE that first fell in love with Rose. Neither of those two things would have happened without the Eccelston/Piper chemistry.

Ah, what I wouldn't give for him to guest-star on SDoaCG. Number one, hotness would ABOUND! Number two, it would totally rejuvenate some Nine/Rose love -- fics, vids, memories for many of 'oh yeah, I first loved Doctor/Rose because of that guy! and his chemistry with Billie Piper.'

Ah well.
faith5by5_1013: Doctor Who: Nine/Rose: Kissfaith5by5_1013 on January 9th, 2009 09:19 am (UTC)
I agree completely. People always seem to forget that the Doctor/Rose relationship began with Nine/Rose. And I don't think Ten/Rose would have happened without Nine/Rose.

I think that they were insanely lucky that BP has chemistry with DT (even though it's not as amazing as her chemistry with CE). I can't imagine what would have happened if there was all that Nine/Rose chemistry and then no Ten/Rose chemistry.

I would love that too! That's another case where the squee would kill me.
Arabian: Dr Whoarabian on January 9th, 2009 07:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that was partly why I didn't watch S2 for so long, because I couldn't imagine that the chemistry would work at all. They really are lucky that David and Billie had chemistry too. A different kind, I've always thought of the Chris/Billie chemistry as more sexual, sizzling, electric, tension-filled where as the David/Billie chemistry is bouncy, happy, fluffy, comfortable. And that type of chemistry worked for how both series' played out.
faith5by5_1013: Doctor Who: Nine/Rosefaith5by5_1013 on January 9th, 2009 08:54 pm (UTC)
Yeah, DT and BP's chemistry is more cutesy and happy and CE and BP's chemistry is HOT! But at least it's there and it works with the show and each individual series.

Done posted. Yay. Thanks for the push, I'm not sure I would have ever got to it otherwise.

Oh, a Nine/Ten episode ... I surely would die of squee.
theyellow_daisy on January 10th, 2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
Your little snippit from your story sounds great! Write more ;)

That's too bad about Dragon*Con. I was supposed to go, but couldn't make it. I sat in a panel somewhat like that at another Doctor Who convention, while they talked trash about Rose/Doctor. That was hard.

Jiggery-pokery is my favorite too!

Arabian: Dr Who (10) - Impossible Planetarabian on January 13th, 2009 09:30 pm (UTC)
The story's done. Yay!!!

Yeah, Dragon*Con sucked. I've been trying to see how setting up a RTD/Doctor/Rose panel, but no luck thus far. Grrrr.
annasakai on January 12th, 2009 03:36 am (UTC)
Spot on about Nine and Rose! Could post a book about all that hotness. If CE and BP hadn't of made it work so fabulously, would it be what it is today?

CE always said in interviews that Rose was the Doctor's equal, not just the companion, or the secondary character. And DT in commentaries has called Rose the love of the Doctor's life. So if the actors that actually play the Doctor see Rose that way, all the fanboys really just have no leg to stand with their Rose-hate. They are so annoying!
(Anonymous) on January 12th, 2009 11:49 am (UTC)
If you are a CE fan, have you heard his audio readings for BBC Radio 2 for the week of Christmas? Hearing his voice always reminds me of why he was so fabulous as the Doctor, there is so much emotion in his voice.
Arabian: Doylearabian on January 13th, 2009 09:31 pm (UTC)
They had SUCH hot chemistry. I totally believe that we wouldn't have the Doctor/Rose we have now were it not for what CE/BP created. I really do.

Just word; total, total word!

For the fic quote... Where is the rest of it already?!

Crosses arms. Glares. Taps foot.

I'm waiting. As I assume this is TenII, and I agree with the whole idea behind it - and it's babbling is brilliant, and the end is hilarious... Yes. Well, I'm still over here waiting. Not entirely patiently.

I agree with you on Donna. I know a lot of people were mad - and I think anger is a legitimate response, since it was a hugely emotional end. But I think directing that anger to RTD as though he has done something unforgivable is misdirected. I hate it when writers kill people just for the shock value or to make me cry. But here her ending made all kinds of sense for the story - and was hugely tragic, but in a beautiful way. I'm also not angry with the Doctor for it, because I totally get that he would not watch her die. And I think to say death would be better is short-sighted. And I think if Donna had been given a chance to think it through, she would agree. Donna achieved awesomeness because she was ready, the Doctor just gave her the opportunity. There is nothing to say she won't find another - as Turn Left amply demonstrated.

Um, is this question for realsies?
11a. Have you written any of the novels or short stories?
No.
Is anyone who would answer yes to that question actually going to be filling out the poll? Weird.
Arabian: Dr Who (Ten)arabian on January 13th, 2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
It's done written. YAYERS!!! Yes, TenII, yes, there is babbling, and a tad more humor as well.

Re: Your Donna paragraph. Yes, just YES!

With that question, I was like 'huh?' and just rolled my eyes, moving along. LOL!
