I used to have a masterlist here, but it came to my attention that it was a) wildly out of date and b) had links that went back to LJ rather than to the mirror posts here.  I have not gotten around to remaking it, but you can find my Doctor Who fanfic at the Teaspoon or the AO3. You can also click my fanfic tag (look below!) and see where that takes you.

Additionally, while I have your attention, hello!  My journal is, at the moment, mostly open.  If you drop by and like what you see, I'm always happy to make a new friend.  If I've not seen you around before, I may not friend back, but you are always welcome. :)

Title: this moment now
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Amy/Rory
Word Count: 456
Rating: G
Disclaimer: I own no Who, as usual.
Warnings: none
Summary: Rory lies awake for a long time after the Doctor leaves.
A/N: Oh, look, another thing I wrote for a prompt and never got around to reposting. This must have been sitting on my computer since, like, September, since it is set immediately after the second "Pond Life" minisode. It was written for the prompt, "So, the Ponds are having marriage problems. Can I get some extremely fluffy Amy/Rory?" and is, accordingly, shameless fluff. I make no excuses. Title from Vienna Teng's "Recessional."

First final down, two more to go.  I wouldn't say it went well, but it also didn't go poorly, and all it really had to do was not be a disaster.  I think I just needed to pass it, really.  Or get a C on it if I wanted an A in the class.  Anyway, no more epsilon-delta proofs for a while, which is good.  Ugh, that algebra final, though, I can't even think about it.  I still have time to study, I still have time to study, I still have time to study....

In cheerier news, my fandom stocking is up.  I think I may have most of yours already (at least those that have already been posted), but if not, link away. :)

ladymercury_10: (AmyRoryHug)
Countdown to finals has begun!  If I disappear...I may be studying.  I was supposed to study today, but instead I kind of slept most of the day.  I think it was my punishment for too many days of not sleeping enough/trying to live off coffee and dried fruit and protein drinks. (Sadly, that was actually my attempt at finding food that was not entirely nutritionally vacuous...yeah.  I am kind of the world's worst vegetarian.)

ANYWAY.  If you are not yet Doctor Who friending at [ profile] eve11's friending meme, you should go do that!  And [ profile] gdgdbaby is hosting a holiday love meme.  (My thread is here.)

Everyone keeps telling me it is NO GOOD that I never finished RTD Who, and especially that I never watched any Ninth Doctor episodes.  So last night, [ profile] light_frost and I watched "Rose" and "The End of the World."  (Since we don't live in the same state, this really means we were on GChat while we were watching them.  She had seen them before, incidentally.)  

Man, I thought Ten was sad, but Nine goes and hangs out at, like, the launching of the Titanic, and his idea of an impressive vacation is taking Rose to see the world blow up.  Rose and Mickey were cute, even though they seemed like they were kind of talking past each other most of the time.  And they looked so young!  Also, weirdly, the special effects were super cheesy, but "Rose" was a much creepier episode to me than many more straightforwardly creepy episodes.  I am not sure if I am more susceptible to cheesy-scary than proper-scary, or if I am just getting more susceptible to being scared by Doctor Who in general. :P

Also in fannish news, I have been trying to get in some more library comics-reading before finals/winter break, so I just finished Robin: Year One, Batgirl: Death Wish, and Batgirl: Year One.  Which, Batgirl: Year One was amazing, and pretty much everything I would want from a comic.  The art was magical, and I really liked the story and how Babs and Dick were written.  It has a lot of mythology references, and allusions to Barbara's future as Oracle and such, and other cool stuff.  It makes me so sad that it's out of print. :(

Did everybody see that [ profile] fandom_stocking moved to DreamWidth this year?  I haven't finished making my stocking yet, but I am very excited to do so.  Who all is participating?  I want to know where your stockings are. :D

Title: if you find another
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Amy, Eleven, mentions of Rory
Word Count: 830
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I own no Who, as usual.
Summary: Suppose it didn't mean anything.
A/N: Set between "Flesh and Stone/The Time of Angels" and "The Vampires of Venice."  Written for [ profile] goreplz, who prompted, "Amy/Eleven, I didn't want to know who he was, or what you did, or that it didn't mean anything" as part of the days that never came ficathon.  Which was way back in October, but I am so good at procrastinating when revising or HTML are involved.  Um, I think I took the title from "Boats & Birds," by Gregory & the Hawk.

Wishing a happy belated Thanksgiving to fellow US-ians and a lovely weekend to all!  Having survived my midterms, I spent the first half of my Thanksgiving break overloading on comic books and graphic novels.  (Have I mentioned lately that I love the local library in the town where I go to school?  Because I do.)  And the library also got me the Seventh Doctor Audio "Night Thoughts," so I listened to that, and then I watched "Battlefield" today.  I meant to do a lot of writing, especially for [ profile] yuletide, over the break, but I've mostly just been catching up on sleep and fangirling things.  Which, Ace and Shou Yuing are adorable together, and if there exists fanfiction of them having sleepovers and braiding each other's hair and exploding non-critical pieces of architecture, I would be much obliged if someone would tell me where it is.  And I expect I've found most of the Ace/Hex that exists, but I would so like to be proven wrong. :)  

Just for my own reference, and in case anyone cares, the comics I was reading are:

Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall
Batman: The Court of Owls
Nightwing: Year One
A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel
and the first two issues of Li'l Gotham

Now with a postscript, because I remembered that I have More Doctor Who Thoughts, due to the Brig being in "Battlefield": According to TARDIS Index File, Kate Stewart was born in the early 70's, so does that mean that at some point she and Ace were roughly the same age and were hanging out and comparing notes on alien invasions?  Or maybe that's what they did when they grew up? :D

Survived 3/4 exams including the weeklong abstract algebra Take-Home Exam of Doom.  Am supposed to be spending the weekend cramming for my analysis midterm, but I did a couple problems yesterday and then stayed up until 1 am reading Batman & Robin, derping on Tumblr, and watching Star Trek: TNG.  Heh.  Guess I know what I'm doing today.

ANYWAY.  Why am I here and not learning about the Mean Value Theorem...I actually don't remember.  OH!  Insta-rec.  If you would like to go back to crying about the Ponds leaving, and if you would like a story that reads like a cross between circa-S5 lyrical Eleven/Amy fic and current canon, you should read no one loves you like I love you by [ profile] pyrodynamo.  It is excellent.

ladymercury_10: (Ponds)
Well, it's midterms again, so this is the lull before Cram All The Things begins in earnest.  I got my algebra take-home today, and I don't even understand it well enough to be properly mortified by how unprepared I am for it, but I need to start on it soon anyhow.  But for now it is still Friday, so here is a meme, stolen from [ profile] isiscaughey:

List seven songs you are into right now (preferably with links). No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your live journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

A Teen comment!ficathon
(click on the picture)

This ficathon is actually getting a lot of traffic (like 12 pages of comments at least, and lots of fills, too) despite LJ's recent lull, and so you should definitely go play!  I wrote a little fill here, which was for the prompt "amy/eleven, if you be my star, i'll be your sky," although as usual when I try to fill Amy/Eleven it has ended up being more conflicted!Amy.  But anyway, go write things, and I am going to sleep now.

So I watched "Remembrance of the Daleks," and basically I was, as [ profile] shinyjenni would say, making little fists of glee the whole way through.  Oh my goodness.  I know I say it all the time, but I love this show.  Entertaining background lady scientists!  Bechdel test passing!  The Doctor, for once, managing to be less impractical about money than the companion!  Power-synth music and other 80s tropes for childhood nostalgia and great justice!  Ahem. *straightens sweater, calms down*

somewhat spoilery reactions under the cut )
ladymercury_10: (Default)
Via [ profile] elisi: it appears the recent LJ modifications may not be as disastrous as they first appeared?  As summarized here, there will be some customizability, including the ability to switch off infinite scroll (thank goodness).  Also, paid accounts aren't really going away--if you have one, you'll still have one, it looks like, and if you don't have one yet, you'll be able to just buy the features you want, instead of a bundle.  If you have a paid account when that happens, it looks like you may also get some special privileges?

So that's good.  I think?  I hope.

In other news: I am very excited to get my Yuletide assignment, I don't understand permutation groups so I expect that at least one of the proofs I wrote up for my homework makes no sense (oh well), and I have once again gotten overly ambitious with the borrowing of library books and comics. (Batgirl!  Batman!  The Great Gatsby!  Wait, what?  Who thought it was a good idea to give me library cards?) 

Oh!  And I started poking at the nearly-infinite Doctor Who backlog.  I started watching in 2010, so I've seen all of Moffat Who, somewhere between half and two thirds of RTD Who, and two Fourth Doctor serials.  But I read Classic and Multi-era fanfic sometimes, and I was on an Ace/Hex fanfic binge the other day, and I thought, hmm, maybe I should, you know, actually watch some Seven-era.  So I watched Ghost Light, and I didn't understand a lick of the plot, but it was fun and spooky and Seven was great.  He is much calmer than the Doctors I am used to, and also very scary when he wants to be.  And Ace!  She was actually less big and tough, somehow, than I expected her to be, but she seems like a good companion.  Although--were the TV acting guidelines different in the 80s?  It seemed a bit melodramatic to me.  But the school library had Remembrance of the Daleks, so that's on my desk, waiting and hoping for my legendarily poor TV attention span to return to it. :P
ladymercury_10: (Oswin)
Aaand once again I appear to have fallen off the planet.  I'm actually online a lot, I just don't have all that much to update about.  Anyway, things have been all right.  I survived midterms--my algebraic disaster was averted by a generous grade curve, and I managed an A on my analysis exam.  Today's adventure was that feeling when you think you're finally getting real analysis, and then you open your book and it isn't words.  Apparently my professor has an extremely subtle plan for us that involves spending two days on uniform continuity when the book cares waaaay more about set closure, compactness, and covers.  Or, at least, I hope he does, because the problem set he assigned for this week is looking pretty darn cryptic at this point. :P  

And then there was Visit All The Libraries.  I had to pick up holds at the public library and the school library.  I've been reading a lot of Batman and Bat-family comics, as well as some regular books.  The last comic I read was one I actually bought as opposed to libraried, and it was the 0 issue of the new Batman and Robin.  I must admit that while I am still irritated by the New 52, it was really good.  I am currently reading To Say Nothing of the Dog, by Connie Willis.  I think some of you guys ([ profile] eve11 for sure) told me I should read Connie Willis a long time ago and I finally took you up on it.

Also: there has been a spate of ficathons lately, so although I have posted nothing lately I have been writing.  If you are interested in this recent commentficcery, here is the linkage.  Erm, I don't know about summaries--the first two were for an autumn-themed ficathon and the other was for an Eleven/Amy ficathon, if that helps.

Amy/Rory, for the prompt footsteps in the fog, smoke on the air
Amy/Rory, for the prompt don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
Eleven, Amy, Rory, for the prompt I didn't want to know who he was, or what you did, or that it didn't mean anything.

That concludes this update.  *end transmission*

ladymercury_10: (AmyRoryPostcards)
Hello!  Thank you so much for offering to write fic for me!  You are awesome.  :D

This is my first time doing Yuletide, so I hope I've got everything all together sensibly.  Here goes!

It is time again for that most splendid of holidays, Ada Lovelace Day!  Once a year, bloggers around the world gather to sing the praises of inspiring women in the STEM fields.  And if you are a lady-identified person in science, technology, engineering, or math, I most cordially salute you.  

I wasn't sure for a while whom or what to write about this year.  And then I thought, can we just talk for a minute about how awesome Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie is?  Because I know everyone has heard of her, and I know in many ways she's become not just the token lady scientist, but the token scientist, and the token chemist, and the token lots of other things.  Which in some ways is a tribute to just how amazing she was, that she as a woman scientist managed to become to many people the face of chemistry, but in other ways it makes what we know of her just a rehearsal of the facts and not really a story.

This is not even really my ship, but I can never resist a good comment ficathon.  If you can't, either, click the banner to see what [ profile] killdarlings and [ profile] northernqueens are running!

ladymercury_10: (Default)
If you're looking for something fun to do and not, like me, hiding from the suddenly never-ending pile of math you ought to be doing, you should check this thing of [ profile] dollsome's out!  It's quite neat.  [ profile] blithers wrote me a really gorgeous little fill in which Amy and Rory pick apples.  I might fill something if I have the time, but like I said, only here because I already took an exam and sketched seven proofs today and I really don't want to touch the rest of the math that's waiting for me just yet.
