Ugh, you know that part of the story where you're setting up the plot and it's all important but it's that tedious connective tissue? That's where I am. I just want to get them on the road already.

I also put another 1000 words on my [livejournal.com profile] spn_in_space story, which is also like banging my head against the wall but for entirely different reasons. *hands*

Yesterday anyone who follows @mishacollins on twitter got this message yesterday:

You are a part of a movement, an uprising. You are now the very definition of civil unrest. Get ready to rumble. www.gishwhes.com


If you go to that site you get a field to enter in your email (and the most complicated captcha I've ever seen), then you receive an email from someone claiming to be Misha's "advisor" saying that you'll be contacted and to buckle up and enjoy the ride. I have no idea what any of that means. Also, the man now has my email. I have no regrets.:)

RIP, Elisabeth Sladen.

This news felt like a punch in the gut. I don't think Doctor Who as we know it today would exist without Liz Sladen's Sarah Jane. She was the Doctor's partner in crime in a way that really hadn't been done before and was my favorite of Four's companions (no slight to Leela and Romana, both of whom I love desperately.) It's obvious in every frame just how fond Tom Baker's mercurial madman is of his Sarah Jane.

Goodbye, Sarah. Say hello to the Brig for the rest of us.

(I wonder if they'll do an episode. They'll almost have to, don't you think? Sarah leaves such a hole in the Doctor Who universe. God, just thinking about Martha or Mickey calling the Doctor with the news.)

Last week I emailed my beta asking if she was up for looking at a fic and because she's wonderful she said sure, go ahead. Then work got busy and I didn't have time to wonder why I haven't heard back (and obviously there's thoughts like "Well, probably it needs a lot of work." And I like to give a week, otherwise I feel clingy and pathetic.:)

But then today rolls around and I think, "Hey, it has been awfully quiet. Has it been a week yet? Let me check." So I go to my sent file and realize I never actually sent the fic. Because I am SO DUMB. *throws up hands*

***

Otherwise on the fic-writing front, over the weekend I had a dream that crossed over Human Target and Heroes and I've been playing with the idea. So far I have 2K of what will probably be a 4-5K first chapter. It's gen casefile, the kind of thing I always get ideas for but never commit to because writing a fic that size is daunting but I'm going to try to stick this out. I've missed writing Heroes and obviously Guerrero would know Claude, because Guerrero knows everyone. (Writing this is also helping stave off the will-Fox-cancel-my-show? blues. Hand to God, I've never felt this kind of anxiety about a show before. I don't tend to fall for bubble shows; virtually everything I've really loved can be sorted into "smash hit" (Lost, Doctor Who, Heroes) or "doomed from the start" (Firefly, Threshold). And Fox has burned me so many times in the past.

I'm going to hold off on going in depth on "Time Of The Angels" until the story finishes next week, except for this: spoiler )

I had no idea just how geeky the casting for the new Nightmare on Elm Street is. Over the course of the film Rorschach will get to slice and dice:

    Emmett from Twilight. (It is Emmett, right? Unless [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda's writing it I don't know from Twilight.)

    John Connor from Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    Blonde Ruby from Supernatural

    Bart Allen from Smallville


And that's without counting Clancy Brown, better known as the Kurgan and the voice of Lex Luthor in everything. The only one of the main cast who doesn't have some sort of geek cache is the girl playing Nancy (which is hilarious, considering that if the movie stays true to the original she'll be the one to make it out. Maybe that's the secret?).

I feel like some kind of weirdo because I really liked "Victory of the Daleks --- more than "The Beast Below," which I liked quite a bit. spoilers for 5x03 and the preview for 5x04 )
misachan: (more sonic)
So if you have fictionally aware fairy tale universe --- one where everyone involved is aware of the tropes that run the world, like the prince always rescuing the damsel and everyone living happily ever after --- it should follow that villains, witches et al would actually be the most virtuous people. After all, they provide the conflict that lets the heroics and ever afters happen, all knowing that in the end their own schemes will be utterly defeated and they'll get nothing for their efforts.

*squirrels away idea*

I'm slowly but surely adding my fics to A03, starting with the short and easy ones and going from there. I'll probably leave the DW ones for last because there's never a "kinda shippy but not more than canon" label. Jack makes this especially difficult, dancing as he does all over the gen line.

Speaking of DW, spoilers for The Beast Below )

I'm enjoying DC's big Blackest Night much more than I thought I would, especially considering that the company was all but dead to me this time last year. Most of that is a combination of Guy and Kyle's epic Guy Love, the "bring dead titles back to life" stunt from this month, and how ridiculously awesome Wonder Woman has been, but what really makes this storyline fun is that it infects you. Watching a show becomes an exercise in figuring out which characters would wear what color ring, or gleefully announcing what color they'd be projecting to a Black Lantern, like announcing your favorite color to cross the bridge in Holy Grail. (Blue! No, Yellow---Arggghhhh!) It came up during a Doctor Who marathon last week, when all agreed that Rose would rock a green ring. (For the uninitiated, the power rings in DC all have ties to individual emotions, both positive and negative. Green=will, red=rage, yellow=fear, orange=avarice, blue=hope, indigo=compassion, sapphire=love. Yes, DC's definition of "emotion" is a tad broader than most. And yes, indigo and sapphire look virtually identical a lot of the time. Work with me here.)

So of course I started giving everyone else power rings, too.:)

The Doctor would be Blue, with indigo and sapphire as secondary colors (hey, if Hal can wear multiple rings!). Not that he doesn't have a strong will, he does, but the Doctor is always strongest when he has something to fight for. He needs a cause, the bleaker the better, and the blue rings are interesting in that they're the weakest until things get so bad there's almost no chance of victory, then look out. That's the Doctor in a nutshell.

Of course, the blue rings are at their best when working with the green rings, and that's where the Companions shine. Rose would indeed rock a green ring, but so would Martha and Donna and Sarah and pretty much everyone else who travels with the Doctor. You just don't last as a Companion unless you have a fearsome will; look at poor Adam, who was an orange ring if I ever saw one. (With some exceptions: I would argue that Fitz was a sapphire ring, for example.) The differences come in what their secondary colors would be; Rose and Donna both have Compassion as their secondaries (Rose is really marvelously empathetic; there's hardly an episode where she doesn't bond with one of the NPCs, and her pain over the idea of the Doctor being alone is compassion at its finest, whereas you only have to see Donna trying to hear the Ood's song to see her glow sapphire.) Martha and Sarah Jane have Love as their second, love for the Doctor and for their families and for Earth (Martha reminds me so much of Sarah Jane, right down to the Doctor putting them in impossible situations.)

Let's leave Jack aside for the moment (he's complicated) and jump to the rest of Torchwood. Gwen is another Will/Compassion combo, very like Rose (I've always theorized that Jack recruited Gwen because she reminded him of an older Rose, especially considering how hard he's working his Nine impression in "Everything Changes.") Tosh and Ianto are both sapphire rings, while Owen is probably red. He's so unhappy and resentful and gleefully takes it out on everyone, especially in S1 ("I sabotage happy relationships.") He actually gets better at compassion after he dies.

The Master is either yellow or orange, depending on the incarnation.

Which brings us to Jack. This question actually came up watching Torchwood and no one could agree. It's not green; the man runs from his problems and he falls into despair too often to be hope. Unlike the Doctor, Jack doesn't get stronger the worse things get, he buckles. And the strongest emotion he has in S1 of Torchwood is rage. Rewatch that season: he is an angry SOB. He snaps at everyone and has no patience and even all of his efforts to find the Doctor again stem as much from anger at being left as from love. So yeah, he probably could power a red ring pretty well. Which is not someone you want in charge.

Oh, Jack. S2 and afterwards he shines sapphire a lot more often; hopefully by the time he comes back he'll have figured out a way to push that ahead of the self-loathing and resentment.

The Oscar noms (put it that way and it sounds like muppet food) came out today and...look, I'm a Watchmen fangirl. I love that movie beyond all reason, but this isn't coming from a fangirl place: it's a crime that Jackie Earle Haley isn't on one of those acting lists. The man put in a performance that I would bet good money is as good as any of the ones nominated, and he did half of it wearing a full face mask. Gah.

At least I have Christoph Waltz to root for.

That "very strange man" who runs the Torchwood in Glasgow? He would turn out to be Jamie.

And Torchwood 4, the one that's gone traveling (and how obvious a B5 reference is that?) Ace would show up in in charge of it, part of some scheme of Seven's that she's determined to see through (not that the Doctor would have known it was part of Torchwood when he stole it. "Are you saying you're one who stole Torchwood?" Ace: "Oh, is that what this is, then?") And she would meet Eleven and fall over laughing.

I just want to know what happened to Ace.:(

And Christina from "The Planet of the Dead" would show up on White Collar as an old flame/accomplice of Neal's. Because, seriously. (Yes, I have power over the White Collar universe, too.:)

Eight years ago the sun still felt like August and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Today is cold and raining and windy, and it feels so much more appropriate to the day than that terrible, scorching, empty blue.

I never lived in New York (although I worked there briefly), but I used to take the PATH into Chinatown all the time. A few weeks before 9/11 I was on the WTC train making an anime run before the fall semester started. The car was crowded and while I had a seat, not everyone did; among the standing was a group of four or five sharp-dressed, Japanese businessmen and women and I spent most of the ride quietly listening to them all speak in Japanese and trying to pick out words I knew. (Because deep down I am that kind of otaku.:) We all got out at the same stop, me walking down to Canal street and them heading towards WTC.

A few days after the attack I was in the Hoboken PATH station; for those who weren't in the area, for weeks after most of the walls of the PATH were covered with Missing flyers for people who were never going to be found. One of these flyers were of a young Japanese woman in a business suit, and I spent about five minutes staring at it trying to remember if she was one of the people I'd been eavesdropping on in that PATH car. I'll never know if she was, or if any of the other people in that group made it out.

But I think of her every year, and of all of the other people I'll never share a PATH train with or pass on the street again.

We still remember.
