Life on Mars continues to be amazing, but this is not about that.

I started rewatching The Christmas Invasion, and oh, what pure delight (after I finish it, I'll do a proper rewatch of Who, from S1). I am only ten minutes in but am already grinning. Here are caps from the beginning:



(Heh. How to make [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie happy: take an OTP, add a dash of h/c and a bit of off-kilter, and some good-old-fashioned she in danger can wake him from unconsciousness bit. And we are set).

I bring you, picspam of last three eps of S3 of Doctor Who.



Angst, snazzy suits, and my blabbing here )

In other news. Overcome by house-cleaning zeal, I brought down all our books from the disorganized messe they were in and organized them into 12 categories (fiction/literature, British literature, history/sociology/biography/science, scifi/fantasy, mystery, Russian language, manga, romance, poetry/plays/essays/sagas, travel, cookbooks, miscelaneous) and put them on booksheleves in order, not double stacked or anything. Mr. Mousie calls it my ‘dorky decimal system.’ Heh. Result? Upcoming trip to IKEA, we need at least three more floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. We must own over a thousand books, which is cool most of the time, but when added to the huge amount of DVDs, creates spece problems for a tiny house. I have also discovered a number of books I didn’t realize I own, and have no idea how, either, e.g. some chick-lit novel about thirty-something friends in Dublin, which has price only in British pounds, so I must have bought it in UK but I do not remember when. Must have been when I visited a friend in Edinburgh in 2000-2001 Christmas break (ever after I went there with Mr. Mousie and had enough entertainment on hand :P) but I swear, I don’t remember buying it. Bizarre.

What kind of person ends up screencapping 'Doomsday?' Clearly a glutton for punishment. Doomsday is my favorite episode of Who, but one I have never rewatched. Until now. Clearly, one time of blotchy face and red eyes was not enough. Guess what? I ended up bawling again. Ugh. It's still brilliant and perfect and still breaks my heart.



Behind the cut is a huge Doomsday picspam. It's huge and the comments are a bit incoherent. Doomsday has that effect on me. Oh, and the comments are very shippy, I warn you upfront.

Enter here for gorgeousness, cookiness, and angst )

In the next installment of 'just how many ways can we torture the Doctor," picspam from S3 three-parter finale. I really must cap Xmas Invasion just for sheer self preservation.

Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Haven't loved an ep this much since second season.

You know that little bit of my heart that was left unbroken by Doomsday? Well, Human Nature/Family of Blood decided to be thorough and finish the job.

My.

God.

This is definitely going on the list of my all time favorite eps in any genre and show.

Ummm.

Wow.

Wow?

Wow.

Side note: I did see '42' and liked it, what with the constant hurt/comfort fetish this show has for Ten, and the scene where he actually admitted he was so scared, and oh, the bit where at the end, he was clearly bothered by so many things, but refused to show or admit it and instead was all abour deflecting. That is so his modus operandi: to shut out and shut down.

But what I want to talk about it the two parter. The amazing two parter.

I am still stunned.

Rambles on the eps )

Anyway, this was amazing and broke my heart. So many many many ways.

I bring you caps:

I promise to reply to everyone shortly.

My LJ time has been rather limited of late, apologies.

In other news, I saw a Doctor Who S3 ep I really liked!



I decided to take the flist advice and skip the second part of the stupid NY two parter and watched 'Lazarus Experiment' instead and I liked it. A lot. The Doctor was geeky and scattered and just awesome, with his understanding that immortality is not desired but a curse, when he talks what i's like to outlive everyone you love, to be left behind, to lose all you care about and be alone (when he is talking to Lazarus). And I so love his passionate decency (my favorite quality about him), how angry he gets because Lazarus thinks some people are worth nothing, aren't as good or great as others. His whole behavior in this ep is shot through with his experience with Rose and with his travels in the last two seasons (I am sure other experiences, too, but am talking about most immediate ones). Rose was living proof that yes, someone might be ordinary, a shopgirl, and rise to the heights of saving the world. Twice. Or think of that maid in the Dickens ep. A nobody who sacrificed everything. Etc etc. The Doctor's world is full of ordinary people doing the extraordinary, so notion that they are dispensable are anathema to him.

Oh, and shock of shocks, I liked Martha. Seriously. I don't love her, or anything, but she doesn't bore me any more. They finally gave her some color, some character: we saw her family, her fear, her bravery, her longing for the Doctor and disappointment that she is nothing more for him than a nice passenger he can easily leave behind. She wants more, and she is so full of a schoolgirl crush, and on the latter, I got to say, she just needs to read 'he is just not that into you.' The most he is capable of is treating her as some sort of a nice, capable, not too close chum (which is the status she earns by the end of the ep). He is lonely, and Martha is good in a crisis and a pleasant travelling companion. But that is all. The Doctor doesn't open much anyhow, but the experience with Rose only exacerbated it. He was vulnerable after the Time War, he opened up to Rose and became even more vulnerable (if you are a shipper like me, you'll say he fell in love with her) and we all saw Doomsday. He's going to lock his feelings away into a big big lockbox for quite a while. I mean, no matter what, Martha is cursed to be the rebound girl.

But yeah, I like her, though want her to stop freaking moping.

And I just realized why Ten wears trainers with his suits. It's because he runs so damn much ;)

I like all the Harold Saxon hints.

Here are some screencaps from the ep, largely focusing on awesomeness that is the face of David Tennant. And there are Lord Peter comparisons :P



Caps here )In other news, I was perusing the big Doctor Who fanfic archive (Teaspoon and an Open Mind). I am pleased to learn that:

a. Threesomes clearly rock the world. Who knew that Doctor/Rose/Jack is the new Holy Trinity. Hmmm.

b. The Doctor could repopulate the galaxy with his offspring. He has kids with Rose, with Martha, with every other companion (male and female), random passerby, and arguably tree stumps. Considering Gallifreyans are supposed to not be randying it up all over the place, is he making up for lost time?

c. Purple hair is so in for companions. Or long names or sparkly nails. We have been spared Unicorns though.

d. If I read the word 'soulmate' again, I am liable to kill someone. I thought that word got all used up by the Buffy fandom, anyway (yes, I ship Buffy/Angel, yes, I ship Doctor/Rose, yes, I think this word should be banned forever).

Oh MAN. [livejournal.com profile] lainemma has started subbing The Outsiders II. And I already have the first two episodes.

What is The Outsiders II? Well, only the 'midquel' to the only drama that ever came close to knocking Mars off my 'number 1 drama' spot. And yes, I did finish The Outsiders, and yes, I bawled like a little girl, and yes, the end was inevitable and perfect, and no, I bloody well don't want to talk about it.

Anyway, The Outsiders II takes place during that 'time jump' in the middle of The Outsiders, and so you get to see Hong Do and Ah Qi develop their funny, cute relationship. And you get to see Yu Yen deal with and internalize her rape trauma and become the tough, broken 'mob moll' she is after the time jump. And you see Ah Hao progress up the hierarchy. And above all, you get to see more of the gorgeous, impossible, doomed Ah Hao/Yu Yen: disintegration, and secrets, and scars, and love. They are losing each other because of her rape and her secret of her being raped, and he can feel the barriers and doesn't know why. But yet, there is so much love between them. They are one of my Top OTPs ever, and I get to see them again. It doesn't get better than that.

Though possibly, it does, when I also find a new jdrama. Blame [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore for my interest in Rondo. She posted awesome pics in her LJ so check them out. She said it's jdrama does kdrama, which I love. Though I am first finishing Why Why Love (I know it has a happy ending but I can't bear any pain to the protagonists) and A Beautiful Life.

Also, has anyone seen the jdrama Ice World (Kouri No Sekai) with Yutaka Takenouchi and Nanako Matsushima? More importantly, can anyone spoil the ending for me? Plot: Eiki Hirokawa is an insurance investigator who becomes enthralled by an icy geography teacher Touko Egi he meets while examining a mysterious death at a girl's high school. Chances are Touko may have been responsible for several deaths. Her three fiancees have made her the benefactor of their life-insurance policies, but all soon died after they cancelled their policies. Eiki suspects something in Touko but at the same time, he begins to fall for her.

Here is the MV:



Completely unconnected, I finished 'The Runaway Bride' episode of Doctor Who which I loved beyond love. So funny, and bitter, and clever, and sad. Everything. I love that the Doctor offered even the evil spider empress one chance out. And I love equally much that once she refused, he destroyed her and her evil race, and he didn't mind, and looked utterly calm and in madness at the same time. I loved Donna completely, in her opinionated loud-mouthness and common sense and perceptiveness. She could tell the Doctor is incredibly lonely (he asked her to come along because he wanted anyone suitable, anyone, really. And in her reaction he is again confronted with loneliness, and the way he scares people away because of the darkness and danger. Hmmmm, like a more functional version of Stark?). And she also knew the life was not for her (at least now). And also, as Mr. Mousie put it 'she didn't want to be the rebound girl.' Because throughout this episode it is made clear, over and over, that Doctor is so not over Rose (in part, he is so set on rescuing Donna is because 'I am not losing anyone else.') I love the bit when he tells Donna, when she asks him is 'trust me' what he told his previous friend, that Rose is very much alive, so much conviction. AWWWWWWW. And the way his face closes and he deflects every time she is brought up. And the way he remembers spending Xmas with Rose. And at the end, when Donna asks him what his friend's name was and he says, very quietly, 'Her name was Rose' and his face is...*sniffle* But my favorite D/R thing was when he was at that reception, and saw someone dancing with a blonde girl, whose hair kept swinging the way Rose's did, and kept flashbacking to holding Rose there, in New Earth and his eyes...he looks like he has to refrain from crying.

Some screencaps from the ep:

Though possibly, it does, when I also find a new jdrama. Blame [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore for my interest in Rondo. She posted awesome pics in her LJ so check them out. She said it's jdrama does kdrama, which I love. Though I am first finishing Why Why Love (I know it has a happy ending but I can't bear any pain to the protagonists) and A Beautiful Life.

Also, has anyone seen the jdrama Ice World (Kouri No Sekai) with Yutaka Takenouchi and Nanako Matsushima? More importantly, can anyone spoil the ending for me? Plot: Eiki Hirokawa is an insurance investigator who becomes enthralled by an icy geography teacher Touko Egi he meets while examining a mysterious death at a girl's high school. Chances are Touko may have been responsible for several deaths. Her three fiancees have made her the benefactor of their life-insurance policies, but all soon died after they cancelled their policies. Eiki suspects something in Touko but at the same time, he begins to fall for her.

Here is the MV:



Completely unconnected, I finished 'The Runaway Bride' episode of Doctor Who which I loved beyond love. So funny, and bitter, and clever, and sad. Everything. I love that the Doctor offered even the evil spider empress one chance out. And I love equally much that once she refused, he destroyed her and her evil race, and he didn't mind, and looked utterly calm and in madness at the same time. I loved Donna completely, in her opinionated loud-mouthness and common sense and perceptiveness. She could tell the Doctor is incredibly lonely (he asked her to come along because he wanted anyone suitable, anyone, really. And in her reaction he is again confronted with loneliness, and the way he scares people away because of the darkness and danger. Hmmmm, like a more functional version of Stark?). And she also knew the life was not for her (at least now). And also, as Mr. Mousie put it 'she didn't want to be the rebound girl.' Because throughout this episode it is made clear, over and over, that Doctor is so not over Rose (in part, he is so set on rescuing Donna is because 'I am not losing anyone else.') I love the bit when he tells Donna, when she asks him is 'trust me' what he told his previous friend, that Rose is very much alive, so much conviction. AWWWWWWW. And the way his face closes and he deflects every time she is brought up. And the way he remembers spending Xmas with Rose. And at the end, when Donna asks him what his friend's name was and he says, very quietly, 'Her name was Rose' and his face is...*sniffle* But my favorite D/R thing was when he was at that reception, and saw someone dancing with a blonde girl, whose hair kept swinging the way Rose's did, and kept flashbacking to holding Rose there, in New Earth and his eyes...he looks like he has to refrain from crying.

Some screencaps from the ep:

And since I am in the Doctor/Rose mode, here is a MV that incorporates RB:



Another cool MV )
