On airy nothings and tomorrows that never come

"I don't really believe in anything except people."

Kate. 22. Massachusetts.

A collection of random, assorted interests.

Mostly Doctor Who. Mostly Classic. William Hartnell is my Doctor and One/Steven/Dodo is my Team TARDIS. If you're here looking for Tenth Doctor stuff you're in the wrong place.

Also, a lot of Jean Marsh. A lot of Jean Marsh.

Other things you may see include baseball, anime, manga, Upstairs Downstairs, Law and Order: SVU, My Little Pony, Seinfeld, Father Ted, Sealab 2021, yarn porn, and whatever miscellaneous other stuff catches my eye.

Ask box is always open. Anon is always on. Enjoy your stay!

Glad to know you are alright - you'll be much missed if you don't come back.

I’ve been around on another secret-but-not-really blog, and I’m far, far happier there than I had been in a long time here.  I don’t know if/when I’ll be able to transition back here, and I don’t yet know if I’ll want to.  Not in the mood to go too much into it and burn all my remaining bridges here, but I’ll probably only be in to post occasionally to keep it from getting deleted. 

Tag, you’re it! Here are the rules: Each tagged person must post ten things about themselves. You have to choose and tag ten people. Go to their blogs and tell them you tagged them.

BUT I SUCK AT THESE D:  Here we go.

  1. I have several bruises at the moment.  I don’t know where they came from, and I never bruise, so I’m mildly concerned about having many at once.
  2. I have a tendency to get extremely attached to some unidentified persons cases, and have actually cried when someone whose case I’ve been following for a while is indentified.
  3. I have 11 piercing holes in my body, for a total of 10 pieces of jewelry.
  4. I was in a candlepin bowling league for a few years as a child.  I was terrible, but somehow have two decent sized trophies to show for it.
  5. The first thing I bought on my first trip to India was a bird book.  I like birds, and it served me well.
  6. I’ve been a vegetarian for 8 1/2 years.
  7. The only reason people might know my hometown is because a guy shot up his office building here the day after Christmas one year.  My town is boring.
  8. I was a top Girl Scout Cookie seller in my area for several years.
  9. I have a million things I need to watch right now, and I will rectify that tonight by watching none of those things.
  10. It’s an odd story, but the missing episodes are the reason I got into Doctor Who.

This was really hard.  Goddamn, I’m uninteresting.

I believe you are quite mistaken, anon.  :P

But I would be lying if I said it didn’t make me smile a lot.  :)  *hugs anon*

Ben or Steven? (Doctor Who)
desirousofchange desirousofchange Said:

Oh, Steven.  Definitely Steven.  No offense to Ben.  He’s cute, even when he forgets how to normal face.  But Steven?  *dreamy sigh*  He just has such a great face, IMO, and great hair and wow I’m pathetic.  Yeah, he’s my fictional husband.

S (evil laughter) O and U

O - Choose a song at random, which OTP does it remind you of: The only song I have that reminds me of a pairing you’d know is “Wherever You Will Go”, which somehow became my James/Georgina song.  I can’t hear it anymore without the ~feelings~ kicking in, and I really, really want to vid it for some reason.

U - If you mostly have heteroships, do you have any homoships: Oh, I have ships of all kinds!  M/F, F/F, M/M, M/M/F, house/ghost, etc.  I have no restraint when it comes to ships.  It’s kind of horrible, really.

S - Show us an example of your personal headcanon: Benik and Guy Crayford are regenerations of Castellan Kelner after he was puinished for the Sontaran incident and became a renegade.  Not a terribly exciting one, but I’m not sure I’ve shared this one with anyone in it’s entirety?

N, Q, Y?
desirousofchange desirousofchange Said:

N - Your favorite fanfiction or fanauthor: Ah, crap.  Um.  Hmm.  I.  Can I pass on this one?  I’m not sure I actually read enough fic for this.

Y - A fandom you’re in but have no ships from: Is… is that possible?  :O

M, Q

M - Your favorite fanart or fanartist: I don’t know a lot of fanartists, but I have to go with ladyyatexel.  Because everything she draws is lovely and she does such beautiful things with colours and damn.

A, B, K, and Z. :D
desirousofchange desirousofchange Said:

A - Your current OTP: It’s not technically an OTP because I ship one party with other people but I AM SO OBSESSED WITH/EMOTIONALLY INVESTED IN STEVEN/DODO I DON’T THINK ANYONE CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND.  I just love them so much and they’re adorable together and it should have been canon and and *gross sobbing*.  Also Richard/Hazel from Upstairs Downstairs, for pretty much all of the same reasons, including the gross sobbing.

K - How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom: What is my current fandom, even?  If we go with Classic Who in general, I rather like most of the people.  One-era specifically: ALL WONDERFUL.  Classic UpDown: AFSFLJKHKJHJAD

Z - Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go: I am constantly amazed by the lack of smutty Steven fic.  I really don’t get it.  Every other male companion has more.  The UNIT guys have more.  Steven basically gets one kinkmeme fic where he’s shagging his stuffed panda and WHY?  I mean, there are other fics that are partly kind of Steven porn, but nothing dedicated just to Steven having sex with people.  And he’s reasonably shippy with all of the others he travels with and how there isn’t just a ton of Steven/Sara fic is beyond me ignore the fact that my interpretation of their relationship is mostly just AND THEN THEY HAVE SEX.  Poor Steven.  This is a horrible rant, but I can’t stop thinking about it.  Damn.

B and/or Q?
desirousofchange desirousofchange Said:

B - A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind:
Oh, jeez.  I think I’m usually the one changing people’s minds about ships.  Ummm…..  ummm…. Well, I had never considered Brig/Sara until this past weekend.  DAMMIT, CHEESY!  Also, I ship Adric/Nyssa a bit and I’m pretty sure it’s because of the internet.

Q - A ship you’ve abandoned and why: I have rather a few baseball RPS ships I’ve abandoned (not naming them because I always feel weird about my RPS shipping).  Mostly because I found other ships I liked better for the people involved, or someone got traded and things wouldn’t work as well anymore.  Other than that, I can’t think of anything.  I’m not one for jumping ships.  I usually just add more to the pile.

"Grandma Goes to Town" started laughing. can't stop laughing. don't know why i'm laughing.

It’s completely hilarious, that’s why!  I’m just glad I wasn’t drinking anything because If I was I would have a very wet book.
