Plot holes the size of small continents, but boy was that fun.

I demand an explanation for why I haven't been able to find gifs of these two moments:

For [livejournal.com profile] 2nd2ndalto  for the commentary meme. Feel free to go there and suggest something else! Original story here.

You go to my master list and pick a one-shot, or a single chapter of one of my multichapters, and comment to this post with your selection. I have links to commentaries I've done previously along with the story link on the master list, so no fair picking something I've already commentated upon (unless it's a different chapter of a multi-chapter story) . I then (as a separate post) do a commentary about that fic, which may or may not include canon meta, wondering what on Earth I was thinking, tmi, and general arsing around.

kalleah: (dw what?)
In contemplating my unfinished stories, I came across this fragment which I believe is as finished as I'm ever going to get it.  This came about in that very speculative time between Planet of the Dead and The Waters of Mars, when one of the popular theories was that RTD was going to wipe the Doctor quite clean and start us out in the Moffat era with a true reboot, not just a regeneration.  Clearly, that didn't happen, but I did play around with what it might be like to have the Tenth Doctor dealing with the thought that saving the universe (in whatever form the danger manifested) meant losing his memories and self.  I'm giving you this much preface because there isn't much of that explanation in the very short story itself, and I wanted to share a bit of a lost fragment.

Enjoy (I hope).

I think the giant cliffhanger in the middle of the next series (or between the two small series, whatever you want to call it) is going to be cut for blatant and completely unsubstantiated speculation not based in any reality but the one between my ears )

Another story in The Journey After series, set sometime after Listen and before Life on the Moon or Vintage.  There is a reference to a conversation from The Private Universe.  That being said, it's reasonably stand-alone, so those of you with no knowledge of the other stories should follow just fine.  Mostly, it's smut.  Yay, smut.  Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] platypus for beta work.

The Doctor was trying to take in his surroundings, and entirely of its own volition, his attention kept circling back to one very distracting fact: Rose was wearing a skirt. )

E-focals: Electric Eyeglasses Are the New Bifocals
PixelOptics has designed a pair of powered specs that can track users’ eyes and automatically adjust the glasses’ focal length, depending on if the wearer needs to see close-up or far-away.

It's been a long time since I posted anything, but it has always been my plan to keep writing Ten II and Rose in The Journey After series.  This is set vaguely around the timeframe of Vintage. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nonelvis for some brief beta work a million years ago when I started this. Spoilers for Journey's End, of course, but no other warnings.

Title from Erin McKeown's song "Life on the Moon."

Maybe someday we can live on the moon
but because we can, doesn't mean we have to


Your moon. Still not our moon, or even the rather more impersonal this moon. Rose thought – well, that would come in time, wouldn't it, or would he always be a little distant, a little not quite part of this world? She wasn't sure which one she should wish for. )

For the record:  THAT is how you end a series.  Lost, you did us proud.  I'm in tears, in the best possible way.  It's been a great ride and I am thrilled to have been along.

Now can we please have that Sawyer-Miles cop drama spinoff?

 .... that is all.

I've had 24 hours to reflect on what I think about last night's episode.

In the event that you think my two line reaction might be spoilery. )
kalleah: (dw sonic screwdriver)
The Doctor can render himself temporarily sterile using the sonic screwdriver. No, it's not badfic, it's science.  Discuss.
kalleah: (xkcd science)
I love Terry Pratchett so much for saying what he did in his recent guest blog for SFX.  The highlights (at least for me):

The Doctor himself has in recent years been built up into an amalgam of Mother Teresa, Jesus Christ (I laughed my socks off during the Titanic episode when two golden angels lifted the Doctor heavenwards) and Tinkerbell.

ILU TERRY.  If he'd noted the striking similarity between the aged Doctor and Dobby, I'd have fallen off the sofa laughing.

Doctor Who’s science is pixel thin. I’m sorry about this, but I just don’t think that you can instantly transport a whole hospital onto the moon without all of the windows blowing out. Oh! You use a force field, do you?!

One commenter quoted Arthur C. Clarke ("Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"), which I think is valid.  After all, the sonic screwdriver may be a magic wand, the TARDIS a magic carpet, and the Doctor a wizard, but if it's entertaining, I don't give a flying fuck if it's real science.  After all, I just listened to a podcast in which a very reputable scientist tried to break string theory down to the layperson.  The inner workings of the TARDIS make a great deal more sense to me.  Let's not also forget about the physicists who think the future is trying to prevent the LHC from creating the Higgs boson.  It may be provable (or not) but it's still deliciously cracky.

That being said, I will continue to agonize over my own pseudoscience in my Doctor Who fanfiction, thank you very much!  :)

No spoilers, just my quick reaction:

HOLY SHIT.

I love you, show.

kalleah: (lost time travel is confusing)
Pardon my expletive, but that was necessary.  I'm starting to get it.  This episode, without being in any way spoilery for those of you who haven't yet seen it, was very intricate and will require another viewing.  Or two.

I cannot believe there are only five episodes left.
kalleah: (sparkle)
No spoilers for The Eleventh Hour here, although I have seen it -- just a fond hope that somewhere, David Tennant watched it and both his inner child and grown-up fanboy enjoyed it enormously.  In all those interviews, that seemed to be something he was very much looking forward to.
