So [livejournal.com profile] ravenskyewalker suggested I do some Twelve next, and as it turned out the next icons200 batch of themes suddenly made sense if I considered them in the light of the S8 two-part finale. It was really weird doing new tv, though; I need to get back to the old tv! (What is this shiny stuff, how does it work?)

There are more extras/alternates than usual, because it took me a while to settle on the second Artist's Choice set.

Last night's DW made me write a drabble. Amazing! (It was v good. I loved it. And, oh, I love Clara. ♥ If you don't, I don't need to know about it here. Thank you.)


Friendly Warning
Drabble. Ian Chesterton, Twelfth Doctor. Spoilers for Face the Raven. It is possibly a mean drabble, but it was a thing I thought of this morning.

Friendly Warning )

1. My parents are up visiting, so I may be more erratic and less comment-y than usual (or not, we'll see) but if I miss something, that's why. (We had to watch an episode of Public Eye yesterday and Dad was complaining to me about Frank leaving Mrs Mortimer. It was great, but seriously surreal. What have I done, people? I'm only sad I won't be there to see it when Mrs M turns up again.)


2. Marvellous Twelve & Clara vid by [personal profile] purplefringe; seriously, it encompasses so much, it's excellent:

Cut for embed )


3. [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk is running an X-Files friending meme.


4. As ever, I'd swear there was something else. Imagine it here. It was probably the most important thing. ;-) (Well, other than that swordznsorcery is very kind and sent me a file full of James Maxwell gifs from his ep of The Champions for me to wake up to this morning, and what more can one ask for from someone? ♥)

I managed to get my fic done! (Just!)

Summary: Martha Tyler lives on a time rift, sees things no one else does, and fights evil with rock salt. It’s been that way all her life.


Also at the Teaspoon (once it's been validated).


Anyway, the fic where Mrs Tyler lives by a time rift her whole life and is much better than Torchwood now exists, except I had to write it, which is just rubbish. Why don't other people write these things for me? (I didn't get much TW in; don't be misled.)

I started this ages ago & then found it again just now, and have finished it off & here it is! (I think I'd done it because I only semi-did this meme last time, and then everyone else did it properly and I thought I should too. Looking at the results, obviously I was right.)

The characters are:
Frank Marker (Public Eye)
Cora Mills (OUaT)
G'Kar (Babylon 5)
Twelfth Doctor
Ace (DW)
Steel (Sapphire & Steel)
Miss Marple
Liz Shaw (DW)
Henry VII (Shadow of the Tower/Hist. RPF)
Cally (B7)
Silver (S&S)
Belle (OUaT)

Request: Favourite plot twists - [livejournal.com profile] jaxomsride (It turns out I'm not doing these in order. Also I see no reason to wait for December, either.)


It's hard to think about favourite plot twists, maybe because it's not the first thing I think of in what I like about something (though don't get me wrong, I love a really great plot twist), but also because I have a tendency to rewatch and re-read things I like a lot, so then it becomes hard to remember the time when the plot twist was surprising instead of inevitable and admired plot work.

Or, in short, I can't guarantee these are my actual favourite plot twists, but they were the ones I came up with this week. I shall try to talk about them without spoilers. If this involves sign language at any point, bear with me.


1. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Her books are so well known, that I think I was spoiled for quite a few of them by the time I read them, or, being the sort of lazy reader who hardly ever tries to work out the murder, maybe I wasn't struck by the others. At any rate, once it became clear what the plot twist was in this one, I was delighted by it, and remain so. I've read at least one other book that used the same twist as The Murder of Roger Ackroyd but I don't think I've ever come across anything with the same solution as Orient Express. (It is something that should be hard to pull off without being ridiculous, which is perhaps why. Or because I haven't read the other books in question, of course.) It's not my favourite Christie, but it is by far my favourite solution to a murder mystery.


2. Listen (Doctor Who). I hesitate to mention this, because I don't want to get into DW discussions, but I thought this was shaped around such a wonderful twist, not just for an episode but because it subverted the expectations of the whole show, especially in terms of New Who and did so beautifully. I know some people are watching this other awful show at the moment, but for me, this was one of the most perfect episodes in a long, long while & largely because of the twist, so I have to include it here.


3. My Life's My Own (Public Eye). It's probably not so much a proper plot twist, in the same way as the two above (but then Public Eye doesn't really work like that), but over halfway through there's a reveal that I completely didn't see coming which not only impressed me in terms of the episode but revised my entire opinion of the series I was watching and what it was capable of. And it was already being a particularly good episode. In addition, there's a twist of viewer expectation in which it looks as though the story is winding down to its close in a particular way - and then it suddenly does so much more with its last five minutes.
