Been a bit of a busy week lately with Uni, much to the extent that I'm gonna have to delay my impending Doctor Who/Star Trek face-off for at least a week whilst I finalise the list and get a couple done so I'll have something to stick up on busier days. Have to say so far that TARDIS Wiki and Memory Alpha have proven incredibly useful in my pairing, not to mention some suggestions from fellow Whovians and Trekkies. That been said I'm still missing a couple of spots on the list but to get your appeite wetted here's the presently unfinshed list. I stress the fact that this isn't altogether the order in which they might appear just yet:

Let me know what or who else might deserve a spot on the list or if anyone seems displaced. Till then! :)

15 Characters Meme

If you can't beat them... blame lost_spook for this batch of madness To arms, Copy and Paste:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.


I have aimed to pick from a range of characters which I hope half of which you will have at least vaguely heard of. ;) And don't worry, no question is too stupid. Even ones involving naked people chained to fruit cake.

Just as a heads up that I'm (most likely) intending to start the battle between the aliens of Doctor Who and Star Trek on the 1st of March (so it's lasts the whole month effectively). The list hasn't been completely finalised yet so if you have your own sugestions either for specific aliens or villains or there's a match up you've thought of (ignoring the Borg and Cybermen who will be in the final day against each other) drop me an IM or reply on here and I'll see if it fits! :)

Also experimenting with the idea of doing a top ten list every Friday of things which interest me including Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvel, DC, X-Files, Downton Abbey, 24, LOST and umpteen other possible things which I like or am getting gradually into somehow or other. This Friday will most likely be... Top Ten DC/Marvel Crossovers Which Haven't Happened Yet I'd Like to See! Ones in the future could include my fav Doctor/Companion moments, favourite X-Files I've seen so far, favourite LOST bits or the like. If there's a top ten you'd like to see in the catagories I mentioned above give me an IM or reply here!
Ok, James here, first up I'm sorry I've been very quiet, work on essays and reports and a general running about has prevented me from commenting on here via my main profile, and in particular doing my once-promised review of the Key to Time. I saw the first story The Ribos Operation and then loved the first two episodes of Pirate Planet but since then have become distracted with many another show. Rest assured that I will review them at some point (not to mention debate whose more mad - Graff Vynda-K or the Pirate Captain!)

I've been trying to get my dad into watching the first season of Sherlock (he loved the two two episodes and now wants me to get Season 2 for him) whilst my mother has tried to get me into Downton Abbey (and succeeded - seen the whole first series and episode 1 of season 2 thus far and I think it's one of the best period dramas I've seen in a good while). So TV wise I've been pretty busy.

In any case, we recently had the awesome news that after years of fanfiction and overall debates on the subject, IDW Comics are writing an epic eight-part crossover comic between Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation, putting the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory alongside Jean Luc Picard and his Enterprise-D crew as they battle the alliance I never thought we'd ever see together - Cybermen and Borg! WHEEEEEEE!!!! I'm incredibly excited about this (and I can see the collected Graphic Novel going on my Christmas List for the end of the year) but in honour of the occasion, I'm deciding to do a very special Meme!

A while back I mentioned a tribute to numerous villains and monsters in Doctor Who, but now I'm expanding the idea to become 30 Days of pitting Doctor Who and Star Trek's most infamous alien races and villains against each other, with the chance for you to give your own ideas. This should probably start in about a week and a half time as I format the list, it'll go something like this:
  1. The list will feature creatures from across both the Classic and New Doctor Who and the original four Star Treks - TOS, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
  2. I'm ignoring Enterprise on account of never having seen any of it outside the first story (so I won't kid myself writing about aliens I don't know) and all 11 of the Star Trek films (including the 2009 reboot) are out on account of them being films - this is a TV vs TV thing.
  3. There will hopefully be a nice divide between eras. I'll ideally be picking aliens people would know over the more obsure ones but the idea to have races which counter each other like the Borg and Cybermen.
  4. I'll be using the following critera for each race - Names, Images, Bio, What To Do If You Meet One, Crowning Moment and Notable Individuals. Once that's done I'll give my own opinion of who I think would come out on top by Brawn, Brains and General Awesomeness. I'll then let anyone comment to give their own opinion.

So that's the lot. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in the Meme and until then... Make it GerominSo!
Derek. Mr Metaltron?

Uh? Yes?

Your presence is required.

Oh... kay.

Mr Metaltron, you have been selected to undertake a vitally important task.

Really?

No, not really. But you'll do it anyway. It concerns the Key to Time Season of Doctor Who. Do you know of it?

Well I heard of the myths and legends and Lost Spook keeps telling me to watch it after I finished with Season Twenty-

It is no myth. And you will watch it first.

Ah, well you're the boss Mr White Guardian sir.

It consists of six segements, and these segements are collected in a single DVD collection you have owned for months but haven't bothered checking out.

Yyyyyeah, well I was gonna but I just got some new Family Guy...

Hmph. There are times, Mr Metaltron, when the forces in the universe upset the balance to such an extent that it becomes necessary for a Doctor Who fan to stop everything... and watch the Key To Time Season.

All of it?

In order. And possibly the special features too.

Well surely there are plenty of other Doctor Who fans who-

I have chosen you.

Ah. Well I'll get cracking then! Don't suppose I get a Mary Tamn of my own to watch them with me?

...No.

Drat. Well I'll be off then.

One final thing, Mr Metaltron. I am the White Guardian, and to maintain universal balance there is also a Black Guardian.

Uh ah? Will he be trying to stop me watching them then?

No, I simply wanted to use it as a long-winded way of making sure you put your thoughts on the episodes down when you've seen them.

Rrrrrright. Well I'll be going...

Beware the Black-

Oh sprack off!

Thoughts on The Ribos Operation will be up in the coming days!
Well in a couple of hours I shall be a quarter of a century old. Oh er. In any case, I figured I will be attempting once again to utilise my fanfiction and livejournal skills over that of my umpteen dozen RP journals for a period, since I feel in the New Year I want to get back into that frame of mind. I shall hopefully live up to various past promises (watching Key to Time, doing Top Ten Lists, finishing some fanfiction and carrying on my 'Old Who for Nu Who' series.) and the like.

Also there's been something of a little matter of a Doctor Who Christmas Special (as I was away on the 25th I caught the BBC3 28th showing) and an opening episode of Sherlock to talk about...

So, here's to 2012 being a more blog-filling  year for me, till next time! :)

Avengers Fic Tables

Prompts for avengers_tables in light of the upcoming Avengers Movie (and that I enjoy writing for these characters)! We're allowed two character tables and one other prompt table unfinished at any one time:

AU_ABC Table - Fantastic Four

And here's another table of AU Goodness for au_abc, this one exclusively on the the Fantastic Four of Marvel Comics:AU_ABC Table Below...Collapse )

Well today I got a couple of Doctor Who DVD's in the post including Torchwood: Children of Earth, the Fifth Series of Nu Who and something I've been looking forwards to watching again after so long, the Peladon Tales boxset with two great Third Doctor Stories - The Curse of Peladon and its sequel The Monster of Peladon. The former is a particular childhood favourite of mine and it's inspired me to start a new occasional Livejournal post idea - reccomending Classic Series stories for fans who have come in with the New Series to pick up and check out (ideally with as little spoilers as possible)! So without further hesitation this is:

So that's it for this installment! In the comments below, be sure to leave your thoughts on Curse of Peladon, whether if you have already seen it (and want to add your own reasons why you like it or not) or will do after reading this (and if you do also let me know what you thought of it!) Thanks for reading! :)
