fourteen favourite shots: Doctor Who season three


Ah, season three, probably my favourite of the whole damn show. I absolutely LOVE the shot of the Toclafane swarming over Martha, always have, and the shot of the Weeping Angel showing its true face for the first time had me shrieking. Overuse has killed them but those Angels were terrifying.

Anyway, I have a ulterior motive for dropping this today, because all these shots are from my screencaps site and I stuck a donation button on it today for the first time. I’m not expecting much but we’ll see what happens, yeah?

MCU fanfic: Peter and Peter

Man my fanfiction has been all about the Peters recently hasn’t it? This one stars Peter Parker but is actually about Peter Quill. There is no point in loving Quill because everyone on the internet and beyond loathes him, but I do it anyway.

Title: Peter and Peter
Fandom: MCU/Spider-Man/Guardians of the Galaxy
Summary: In the immediate aftermath of Tony Stark’s death, Peter Parker suddenly runs into a weird dude.

I can’t not share this news, because it’s horrible. More people should know.

Thor: Love and Thunder trailer!

LOVE (and thunder) it. This might be one of the best teasers I’ve ever seen from the MCU actually, it captures a Vibe without revealing much of the plot. And it’s SO GOOD to see the Guardians of the Galaxy again!

However, the best bit was when Lady Thor showed up and my husband said, absolutely thrilled, “That’s her! That’s Jane Fonda!”

Doctor Who: Legend of the Sea Devils

I think I, like…. most other fans? was watching this to see where the Thasmin relationship went rather than anything to do with the Sea Devils themselves. Sorry Sea Devils.

I really liked that the sad Yaz/Doctor conversation about how they could never really be together took place on a beach, a pretty obvious nod to that other time the Doctor and their companion stood on a beach and talked about how they could never really be together, that was a great touch. Oh hey and River got a mention! It does bug me a little that Yaz never goes, “oh, you say you can’t be with me but you had a wife before? What’s with that?” because you’d think she would.

Anyway yes! Some other things happened in this episode! I saw LOTS of people complaining about the CGI and editing and I agree with them but I also wonder if Covid restrictions played a part in that, in which case I can’t really blame anyone. And it was completely delightful to see Madame Ching as a Doctor Who historical celebrity, pirates are great and female pirates are even better.

All that being said the Next Time trailer is the only thing anyone’s talking about right now! Have a look and you’ll see why!

Partygate — Meerkat Musings

I’m mad. I’m fuming. This is going to be an epic rant but a necessary one. It concerns the shambolic, deceitful hypocrites at the heart of this Tory government, and it concerns the opportunity the British public has at the upcoming local elections. Both PM Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak have received fines for […]

Don’t ever let your country become like Britain, kids. :(

What does Qui-Gon have to say in Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi? And a charity stream for mental health awareness! — Making Star Wars

Very recently, I met with some crew members of Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian 3 and the upcoming Ahsoka series. We got to talking about RPGs and a charity event I will be helping out with. There is a subtext to Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi that really ties into ideas of hope during our darkest times […]

What does Qui-Gon have to say in Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi? And a charity stream for mental health awareness! — Making Star Wars

So, I’m really trying not to get my hopes up too high for a Qui-Gon appearance in the Obi-Wan show, not least because Liam Neeson has said he isn’t in it. (He could be lying Andrew Garfield-style, I suppose.) But if this actually happens –

In Chapter Six, after all is said and done, the blue ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn does manifest for Kenobi. As Qui-Gon appears in front of Kenobi, Obi-Wan looks on in amazement, hardly able to believe his own eyes. Qui-Gon Jinn smiles at Kenobi and asks him what took him so long? Qui-Gon then says he’s been there with him the entire time. 

-my Phantom Menace/Jedi Apprentice loving self will be SO BEYOND crying tears of joy. I will be sobbing for days.
