What better way to stop my depressing journal posts than a meme? I've yoinked this from [ profile] lost_spook. I would really love any suggestions of characters to talk about it.

Give me a character and I'll tell you my:

First impression
Impression now
Favorite moment
Idea for a story
Unpopular opinion
Favorite relationship
Favorite headcanon

Please note: You can suggest any character but if it's outside Doctor Who, I may not know it. If I don't, I'll choose a similar character from a non-DW universe that I do know.

I saw this meme on Tumblr and thought I'd do it.

I just cannot resist these.

Please give me a number or two (or more! I like talking too much.) from the list below and I'll answer the question. I'll warn you right now that I probably can't answer #6 or #21, because I don't have any idea what hurt/comfort really means and I normally don't write pairings.

My AO3 for reference.

WIP meme

So, [ profile] bas_math_girl tagged me for this meme on Tumblr, and I'm posting my answer here, mostly because I don't get Tumblr. It's probably just not a good platform for me: I'm not a visual person (as you can tell by my crappy userpics). I won't reblog other people's stuff unless it's really really good, and even if I were to write what I want to say there, I'm too verbose for that site - no one will read miles and miles of text.

Anyway, here's the meme. I'm doing it because I looked up the lines it refers to and I'm actually rather happy with them. And, they are obscure enough that you might just want to find out more...

The rules: Go to page 7 of your WIP, go to the seventh line, share seven sentences, and tag 7 more writer-bloggers to continue the challenge.

Thus, he bulled his way through the crowd in the direction of the TARDIS, rubbing the crystal of the screwdriver in his hand with his thumb.

The readings on the instrument were normal, no anomalies in either space or time in this vaulted shopping mall. This was exactly what he expected: a normal day in a normal place. The problem was in his own head. He had definitely been here alone in the Galleria, but he also remembered being in a Chiswick park with Donna, though that was a distant memory, almost as if it had happened to someone else. He spied an empty bench and trotted over to it, sitting down to think hard and try to fix the memory in his mind.

What did he remember about Donna?

All right, I'll bite. This is ganked from [ profile] flowsoffire, [ profile] a_phoenixdragon, and [ profile] rumpelsnorcack.

I currently have 33 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 33 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

Ganked from the wonderful [ profile] flowsoffire... Go to the seventh page of your work-in-progress and post seven lines from it. You're also supposed to then tag seven friends to do the same thing, but I don't have that many friends. (Joke! Joke! I just hate tagging people for memes.)

What a cool idea! I don't really talk about what I'm working on with anyone, so it's kind of fun to post a few lines of these things that are consuming my mind at the moment. I just wish what I had was more interesting. I see all of these excerpts with these deep, meaningful moments, expressive descriptions, and character explorations, and then I post my few lines of whatever adventure I have, and it seems so... banal. Well, hopefully they'll be fun at least.

I'm actually posting two. The first is from one of the things I'll be posting very soon. It was actually all done, and then I decided to make a major change in one of the characters and had to rewrite the entire thing. The second is something that I've partially outlined and written, but haven't worked on in a while.

Ganked from [ profile] lost_spook, because I'm also bored. Someone give me something to blather about!

Give me a character (or characters!) and I'll tell you:

Three words I would use to describe this character:
All the people I ship romantically with this character:
My non-romantic OTP for this character:
My unpopular opinion about this character:
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon:
My het ship:
My fem/slash ship:
My OT3:
My cross over ship:

I'll talk about Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Marvel (MCU, 616, or Ultimates), Broadchurch, Star Trek: the Next Generation, and Game of Thrones (though I've only seen through season 3) - I might not recognize other characters you suggest (I'm really kind of narrow in my interests). I also usually don't ship, but I'll try for this meme. :)
shivver: (Ten with kitten)
As I noted in the "favorite series" meme, while Series 4 is my favorite series, it's not my favorite arc. That honor goes to Series 3.

I'm not really sure what this meme is asking. Is it my favorite idea? Or is it my favorite music from the show, because the background music is very important to me in Doctor Who? I suppose I'll answer both.

This would not be an interesting meme if I was completely truthful, because the answer would be the Doctor, especially in his Ninth and Tenth incarnations. (This is only the modern show, so I can't include the Fifth and Eighth...) But then, I'd have to go with Donna Noble, but that's also boring, since everyone knows I love Donna. Not that I can't wax poetic about her for hours, but let's go for more interesting. I'm going to go with who is my favorite non-Doctor, non-companion, non-major-recurring character (so, no Jack or River, and no Master in any incarnation).

Now, this is the hard meme of the list. Favorite moment? There are so many to choose from, for so many different reasons! I can't choose just one.

There really isn't any question as to which modern episode is my favorite. I've written more stories about this episode than any other (fifteen of them, compared to eight stories for "The Day of the Doctor"), because the story and the characters are simply fascinating. "Human Nature"/"The Family of Blood" just simply captivated me from the first viewing.

Okay, so as a cop-out for celebrating the modern series' 10th anniversary, I'm going to do this meme.
