It's sometimes horribly sad for us graduate students, how the comics can be so accurate ....:P

Question/request: Anyone has a good reference pic on what Jack is wearing in The Doctor Dances?

May. 30th, 2011 | 06:57 pm

So I need this, obviously, to make fanart ;)

 I know that he's wearing some sort of uniform with a greatcoat, but my googling effort generally has the Torchwood-Jack ensemble (or my googling skill is severely lacking), and my caps of the eps are dark, so I can't seem to get a good view of what he's wearing inside the coat, or the cut of the coat :)

Thank you in advance for any ideas/directions 

Ally  ♥

The meme in which I offer to make you a doodle or a drabble ... :)

Apr. 28th, 2011 | 06:42 pm

While I generally fail at these kind of things, I cannot resist  ...
Snagged from sarah_jones 

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/draw a small doodle of any pairing/character of their choosing*, **. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.


01. Ten/Rose forwho_in_whoville 
02. Ten/Alt!Olivia for sarah_jones 
03. Ten/Rose for mrsdianablack 
04. Clark/Chloe for mrs_roy 
05.
06.
07.
08.
09.
10.

*of course I have to know the character(s), short list below, but I'm sure I know some more :)
. If you're not sure if I know and/or ship someone, just ask :D

** Random crossovers of my fandoms are most definitely welcomed, especially Buffy/anyone, Hermione/anyone and Rose Tyler/anyone  (three guesses on my favorite female characters) :P

On LJ being down most of the time ...

Apr. 8th, 2011 | 12:51 pm

Snagged from dameruth , Originally posted by clari_clyde at post

I’ve been wondering what’s up with all the DDoS attacks LJ has been receiving lately. Signal boosting ingridmatthews:



Just in case anyone thinks LJ's downtime is just TPTB being incompetant, read this:


LiveJournal, Russia's blogging platform of choice, is sustaining biggest cyberattack attack in its history. Bloggers say the Kremlin wants to crack down on political discussion.


"LiveJournal, Russia’s most popular blogging platform, has been under a massive DDoS attack for the past few days. The attack has effectively wiped out Russia’s main refuge for unbridled political discussion, a hugely lively and extensive domain frequented by politicians, opposition activists and social commentators alike...


“The reason for attack is more than clear in this case — someone wants LiveJournal to disappear as a platform,” Ilya Dronov, development director at SUP, wrote in a post on his LiveJournal blog earlier this week. He said the hackers were hoping to push bloggers from LJ to social networks where “it's easier to fight individual users.”"

Taylor Anderson - missing in Japan - can you help?

Mar. 19th, 2011 | 11:27 pm

EDIT: Taylor has been found, but unfortunately she didn't survive. My heart goes to her family and all others suffering from the tragedy in Japan.

from emraldeyedauter 
I do not know this lady personally but it has been posted on the Absolute DT Fangirls facebook page I am part of and its a genuine request for help.  Taylor is an American who was teaching Ishinomaki.

These two web sites give more info about her:

http://worldblog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/03/18/6295045-missing-americans-family-we-just-want-to-find-her

the second one is part Japanese and part Engish

http://japan.person-finder.appspot.com/view?id=japan.person-finder.appspot.com%2Fperson.2538296&lang=ja&query=Taylor+Anderson&role=seek

I was overwhelmed at the wonderful human spirit that came about when honorh was missing.  Perhaps we can help find this young woman too.  It certainly can't hurt to pass on the information.

Art dump .... Doctor Who & Sherlock - plus apologies for long MIA-ness

Jan. 16th, 2011 | 02:46 pm
location: under my duvet, brrrrr . . .
mood: sleepysleepy
music: dandelion junk queens - Creepie Song

Urmmm.... yes, so I've been MIA for ages. Huge apologies for all, my excuse is really only RL stuff that's been burying me, but I just submitted 3 papers last week, so a bit of a break here :D

I do admit I've been drifting away a bit from Doctor Who for a while, which is sort of my main fandom ... plus I sort of also got sucked into the Sherlock (BBC) fandom, so welll.... now I've got works for both, which is good, yes? XD

Previews

A/N on requests and flist stuff: Anyone for whom I still owe stuff to do? Please tell me, I know I owe [info]milieva a banner, but I sort of lost my request list file during my hiatus. I'm now combing my inbox for traces, but I might miss stuff, so tell me. Apologies again and thank you :) Also flist, please feel free to update me on any going ons, RL or fandom wise, as I slowly go through my backlog of friends entries :P

Passing on a request - Getting Serious for a Moment--DW Fanfic Writers Please Read

Jun. 8th, 2010 | 02:53 pm

spread from amberfocus , who said:
Getting Serious for a Moment--DW Fanfic Writers Please Read  

Hey, everyone, I'd like to make a special request from the DW fanfic writers on my f-list.  A friend of mine has told me about a little boy in her life that is eight years old.  A year ago he lost his legs and he will never be able to use artificial legs.  He will be confined to a wheelchair for life and he's had a really, really hard time adapting to his situation.  He adores Doctor Who and Rose Tyler in particular.  He's only seen seasons one and two, but it's the one thing that is helping a little bit.

My friend asked if there was anyone I knew who would be willing to write a Doctor Who story for this little boy, using a character of a heroic little boy named Jack confined to some sort of fancy space age wheelchair, perhaps a flying one, who joins the Doctor and Rose for an adventure.  I write adult romance (very adult, usually) and do not feel like writing for younger children is the sort of thing I can tackle myself.  I was hoping there would be someone who could tackle doing a story like this.

There is so much talent and heart in the Doctor/Rose shipping community.  I've seen the outpouring of it before for Stacie and for disaster victims.  Is there anyone who thinks they are up for this?  Or more than one person?  I'm sure one story would be awesome, but more than one would be fantastic.

I'd also like to ask that this request be spread throughout your f-lists.  The more that people know about it, the better chance we'll have of at least one story to help lift this child's spirits.

the shipping meme

Jun. 7th, 2010 | 02:26 pm
music: Boats & Birds - Gregory & The Hawks

Snatched from [info]sunnytyler001 , because for sure I won't be able to do the 30 days stuff everyone else have done/seems to be doing XD
Top 10 Ships Overall
Top 5 Love Triangles/Threesomes
Top 5 Canon Pairings
Top 5 "Not My Favorite, But They're Very Nice Alternate Choices" Ships
Top 5 Cross-Generation Ships
Top 5 "I Just Don't Feel What Everyone Else Is Feeling" Ships
Top 5 "I Hope These Die" Ships
Top 5 Crossover Ships

plus just for fun, I added links to one (or a couple) random favorite of mine related to them (could be a fic, a comm, site, or whatever, with the caveat of if there are any of them in existence) :D

Does it tell something about me if the last item I was able to finish was the canon ship part...?Collapse )
The interactive portion of the meme:
Ask any question about any of the above ships — why I ship it, what my favorite scene is, explanation on the links — anything.
