Guess what? When you use the word "retarded" in a fic title when a character isn't ACTUALLY FUCKING RETARDED?

YOU MIGHT BE A JACKASS.

JUST SAYIN'.

Any use of that word that lessens it's ACTUAL MEDICAL FUCKING DEFINITION is derogatory. I don't give a shit about it's synonyms. If you are using it's synonyms as a reason to use THAT WORD then, guess what? YOU CAN USE THE FUCKING SYNONYMS IN YOUR FIC &/OR TITLE.

IT'S REALLY EASY. WATCH:

Repressed

SEE HOW EASY THAT WAS? AAAAMAAAAAZING.

GOD FUCKING DAMN IT ALL.

Don't fuck with me after I've been battling Walmart on a Saturday afternoon. LOL

Summary: "Rinascimento! An Earth-like planet colonized in the early eighty-fifth century for the express purpose of celebrating the cultural Renaissance of the fourteenth century through the seventeenth century. It’s all set up a bit like a funfair or theme park. Not completely accurate, mind you, but not as bad as Cassandra mistaking a jukebox for an iPod."

This meme is actually Doctor Who related. Shocking I know. From a discussion with [livejournal.com profile] principia_coh. I blame her. *g*



The Doctor's Wardrobe meme

1. What are the most appropriate descriptions you can think of for the Blue Suit of Doom?

My Great Aunt Sara's leisure suits. Keep in mind, she had been wearing the same exact suits from circa 1963 until her passing recently.

2. The Brown Suit. We know it, we love it. And we know that they'll probably want another backup option on hand this year. Assuming the BSoD goes into the incinerator, what would you like to see replace it?

Truthfully, I'm not sure. I love the brown pinstripe so much. I could see a solid darker/navy blue or black. Or a solid brown.

Can we find a textile company willing to designate a factory solely for the purpose of keeping the brown pinstripe fabric in production?


more memes when I should be packing... )

I love my new icon. *pats it* ... *snogs Hiro* Okay, I'm good. *g*

So. Apparently it's that time of the month again and fandom has her frilly knickers in a twist. Never in my life have I seen a fandom meta more about their fellow fans than they do the subject of the fandom.

When you call someone "batshit" and then blast them for feeling threatened, or complain that a certain ship is the majority and you're sick of seeing it and "why can't they move on already?", then bitch when the majority takes their ball home by locking their posts, you'll have to forgive me when I say you're being a tad hypocritical.

You can't have it both ways. You can either A) Play nicely and stay out of their sandbox OR B) Accept that they've locked you out of the playground and you'll need to find some other kids to steal squee lunch money from. Simple as that. Shippers are not your personal emotional punching bags and they don't have to stand there and keep taking hits if they don't want to. They have every right to lock their posts and keep you out. They have every right to start their own community newsletter based on their ship when they get tired of clicking harmless looking links that turn into shipper bashing threads that would make Simon Cowell blush.

I do lock my fandom thoughts, not because I'm close minded or hate conflict (even though I do hate it) but for the comfort of everyone I know. That and I have better things to do than deal with those who would rather pick a fight than move on. Moving on? Why does that sound familiar?

This isn't a long and insightful meta. I'm pretty much leaving it here as I don't really feel I can say anything I haven't said before or that hasn't been said by folks much more eloquent than myself.

Play nice, stay out of my sandbox and I'll stay out of yours. Sound fair?

Random stuff I've made on a whim or out of boredom. Some are previous entries to [livejournal.com profile] smile_a_smile. Spoilers through Last of the Time Lords. And..er...a few bad words, if you're sensitive about that sort of thing.

No! 'Cause this is what I'm gonna do - I'm gonna rescue her! I'm gonna save Rose Tyler from the middle of the Dalek fleet, and then I'm gonna save the Earth, and then - just to finish you off - I'm gonna wipe every last stinking Dalek out of the sky!

Bet you thought I'd go for a Ten quote. I love my Ten quotes, yes I do, but this line turns me into mush every single damn time.
ivydoor: (She's trapped there)
Okay, with all the wank over Martha and the anxiety about tomorrow's episode, I thought it would be a good idea for us D/R guys and gals to take some time to look at some pretty pictures and remember our Rose!zen.

This post is not locked. Don't like Rose? Move along, nothing to see here. If it becomes a problem, I will delete bashing posts and flock this to the deep dark recesses of the prairie dog network. Capisce?

Lots of pretties... )

Want the pretties without all my blabbering? Help yourself. :)

Okay, I am so indecisive. I've been looking around for a new layout for a while. I like this one (I love that TSP hug) but the bright colors aren't really me. So, since I couldn't find a header I liked, I made my own. But here's the thing: I made 3 versions and now I can't decide which I like best. I'm gonna let you guys pick. Oh, one has a quote from Utopia on it, so I guess it could be spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. Three guesses which quote.

Summary: Between explosions and saying goodbye to an old friend, there are things left undone and unsaid.
A/N: Previous chapters here at Teaspoon.

I figured you knew what you were doing. I mean, a nine hundred year old Time Lord being conned by a twenty year old shop girl does not speak well for your reputation. )

Title: Just Us - 1/4
Characters/Pairing: Ten/Rose, Mickey, Sarah Jane

Betas: [livejournal.com profile] kalleah , [livejournal.com profile] sensiblecat , & [livejournal.com profile] leighleighla
Summary: Between explosions and saying goodbye to an old friend, there are things left undone and unsaid.
A/N: This is a prequel of sorts to the significantly more angsty and more than a bit S3 spoilery Passing Through. And if you squint real hard you might be able to make Always Running fit too. Not that I’d shamelessly self-pimp though. *coughs*

And what? End up in Aberdeen again? )

Title: Galley Boy
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ivydoor  
Rating: PG
Pairing: 10/Rose
Genre: pure crack & fluff
Spoilers: none
Summary: It had started with the peanut butter. Then the vanilla-orange swirled ice cream. Eventually it had escalated to just about every substance in the TARDIS kitchen that was remotely edible.
Author's Note: This is in response to the Chibi!verse Challenge. I blame [livejournal.com profile] jesidres   and the heavy narcotics I’m on right now for this. Bonus points for anyone who can spot the two cartoon references in this fic.

With a sigh and a resigned drop of her shoulders, she headed cautiously into the kitchen. )
