Because I find myself in a fannish mood and not quite ready to write something, so, meme stolen from half a dozen people:

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you

the character I least understand
interactions I enjoyed the most
the character who scares me the most
the character who is mostly like me
hottest looks character
one thing I dislike about my fave character
one thing I like about my hated character
a quote or scene that haunts me
a death that left me indifferent
a character I wish died but didn’t
my ship that never sailed

Can has working laptop?! Yes!

It's that time! Although other people seem to be doing a slightly different one, but that's the internet and memes for you; this one is my regular. Last year's results are here.

Doctor Who 10.02 - "Smile"

Fun fact! A modern Doctor Who episode is exactly the right length to eat a bowl of cereal, drink three small cups of tea, and apply a fresh nail wrap. The deco styling matches my new Star Wars T-shirt, but I can't quite decide how I feel about this shade of pink. Which is fair, because I also can't quite decide how I feel about this episode!

Spoilers are quoting Bowie. )

By checking the dates of successive Strange Horizon counts, I see the trend is for the release date to be later than the one before. I was hoping for April but mid-May may be more reasonable.

Does anyone remember an old movie about an out of control rocket (or maybe plane -- I have not seen the film since I was a kid) that incinerates everything it passes over? I remember one scene in particular, where a family making a snowman gets evaporated. Any idea what movie it was?

I'll be pimping it properly from tomorrow, but it's live as of now if anyone wants to request a card or to promote it. (I have a handy banner with coding available on the comm):



I also rather nervously awarded myself a card )

For the icons200 challenge I've been gradually working my way through. I started these last summer and then stopped before I'd made the last handful for some reason. I have now made the last handful, and, lo, icons for the BBC's 1970s period drama The Duchess of Duke Street, featuring the ever-amazing Gemma Jones.

I put it down to being a snob and a bully. Both very useful things in running a hotel like this. )
