This year, I’m thankful for the fact that I’m graduating in about five months,
for my cat Rory who is usually not annoying just very shed-y (and still extremely adorable),
for a car that hasn’t broken down for quite a while now (running out of gas doesn’t count!),
and for sleep (which is awesome but difficult to come by).
Also, BBC America, for giving me more British television whenever I want it.
All in all, not an awful year :)
50 Days of Doctor Who - Day 50: Doctor Who?
In light of just having watched An Adveneture in Space and Time, this question actually has me feeling quite emotional. I spend so much time haphazardly re-blogging Doctor Who gifs and whatnot, and being emotional about the Doctor and Rose. And then I watch this and it just really puts things in perspective, especially this scene. To watch the story of how it all began, and then see the First Doctor acknowledging the Eleventh Doctor…to realize how far it’s come and how many people it’s touched and inspired…
Doctor Who…? I hope we’re still asking that question 50 years from now : )
I was watching this with my family, and when this happened they all got quiet…then me and my older brother looked at each other and said “oh my gosh, the feels…THE FEELS.”
Man, we were not expecting that but it was so well done! And beautiful. I almost had happy-crying.
Everyone needs this on their blog to show how excited they are for Tomorrow.
Day of the Doctors (I’m gonna happy-rant for a bit)
So my immediate family are all finally Whovians, after me and my brother spent a while watching it and devoted our entire beings to converting the rest of them. My mother was the last holdout and I’m proud to say that I finally got her to watch (and love) it… She just caught up about two months ago.
This week, we upgraded our cable to get BBC America, and we’re having a Whovian-family anniversary special watch party. I’m getting extremely excited.
I will be forever grateful to the cast and crew of the show that gave me an outlet to finally connect with people, not just here but around the world! This fanbase is the greatest and I can barely remember what life BDW (before Doctor Who) was like. I’ve made so many great friends because of it.
Doctor Who united my family in a way it hasn’t been since my brother died ten years ago. It has given us a common love, something to look forward to, something to have deep discussions and debates about, and something to share with anyone who’ll listen. It’s truly been a fantastic journey.
Thank you to everyone on tumblr and LiveJournal who have shared in this with me. You guys are awesome :)

A Plenvadaer crashed right outside Cardiff late Sunday evening, and ran amok all they way to London. The Doctor received Jack’s call Monday morning, Jack’s time, and spent most of the day luring out the creature whilst the Torchwood team cleaned up after it. Now, after sending it off and treating himself to chips slathered with vinegar and sprinkled with generous amounts of salt, the Doctor strolls back to the TARDIS, hands in his pockets and a smile spread across his face. Someone once told him that if one pretends to be happy long enough, one will be.
He walks past a wedding boutique, large shop windows providing passers-by with a good view at the gown-wearing, and inanimate, mannequins, when something fiery red catches his eye. He stops for a moment, staring at the few yellow leaves scattered over the cracked asphalt under his feet, relying on his respiratory bypass system for oxygen. He swallows, draws in his first real breath in minutes, and takes a few steps back, turning around to face the window.
She twirls, ginger locks dancing, white skirts flowing, and gives her mother a brilliant smile. The Doctor can’t help but mirror it, tears prickling behind his eyelids as he delights in her happiness. Swaying from side to side, she moves her arms into second position, head thrown back in laughter. He takes another shuddering breath, emotions swirling around in his chest as joy clashes with regret—and feels a hand land on his shoulder.
