Askdlkihfgsd! Or . . . my mum is a Whovian!

My mum hates sci-fi. Well, not so much hates it, as just doesn’t *get* the whole time travel thing. But she finally broke down, and decided to watch an episode of Doctor Who. She made it through Rose, and I walked into our living room tonight to find her watching The End of the World — all by herself. I didn’t even ask beg her to. So, anyway, we’re seeing definite improvements over last week when she asked if the Doctor had gills! (Really, mum?) Tonight’s episode was the third one she’d watched, (The other being The Girl in the Fireplace.) and of course, I plopped down on the sofa and watched it with her. (I miss me some Nine. Too bad he only had one season.) I know that since she made it through the first one, and watched the second without being asked — she’s hooked. My own mother, hooked on a time travel show — that’s weird. She won’t admit it yet, but she really does like the Doctor and his magic blue box. On another note, she has finally completed all six episodes of Sherlock. I’ve been highly instrumental in bringing that about, too. So, yeah. My mother (and my little sis) is a Whovian — and a Sherlockian. And a dear friend of mine, named Kelly. I got her Sherlocked, but I’m still working on converting her into a Whovian. In the words of Mr David Tennant, “It’s very hard to try to explain Doctor Who, and not sound like a lunatic.” Also, you guys should expect a few very long posts in the next few weeks, so hang in there, and know that I’m doing the best I can! I just wanted to announce to the blogosphere that MY MOM IS A WHOVIAN! Glad I got that out of my system.

Random Thought of the Day

Here’s a little something I thought up.

The thing about flying the TARDIS is, that Nine acts like he’s playing a guitar, all putting his fingers in the right spots at the right times and hoping that the result is good. Ten, however, acts like he’s trying to keep his wife happy with him, all stroking and letting and praying she doesn’t get mad and land him on some terrible planet filled with bloodthirsty natives. Then there’s Eleven, and he’s just like “This is such a fun game! I’m best at this game, aren’t I? How many points do I get for this?” And then there’s River. That one kid at the arcade who knows the machine better than you and proves it every time she walks in the door. You can’t help but be envious, and you sneak peeks at how she does it while still pretending you’re better. Spoiler alert : you’re not.

Accurate post is incredibly accurate.

A Fangirl’s Dream Come True!

I know, I know. I’ve already posted one of my ramblings this week, but what can I say? You guys are just special little snowflakes! Actually, the truth is, I’ve got some really amazing news to share with you. For all you poor dears who have to wait for Netflix to put Doctor Who Season 7 out . . . wait no longer! For I have found a miracle website that has changed my life forever.

*whispers* DailyMotion

The fangirl’s dream! All of Season 7 — plus the unaired pilot episode of Sherlock. Hallelujah!

You can thank me later, just go now. Live your dream!

WhoLock Crossovers

I’ll keep an ongoing list of possible WhoLock crossovers below. You guys are welcome to use them for fanfics, of you feel so inclined, just please send me the link so I can read it!

Sherlock isn’t actually a human. He’s a Timelord, and Molly is his companion. He stored his Timelord self inside his pocket watch, which Mycroft keeps safe for him. (See a Study In Pink.) only problem is, it didn’t quite work. His extraordinary intelligence leaks through. This theory would explain why Molly seems so devoted to him, and gets so emotional when he ignores her. It breaks her heart.

Moriarty is the Master. Think about it. He keeps coming back, what’s to prevent him from coming back one more time? They’re both crazy psychopaths, and knowing that he would regenerate is why Moriarty doesn’t mind shooting himself. What if he regenerates into Sebastian Moran? (S3 villain)

What if Sherlock is a future regeneration of the Doctor, but his TARDIS got sucked into the Crack, causing him to forget it, and everything that went along with it. His adventures. All those times Sherlock just sits there thinking, he’s actually trying to remember something he should never, ever have forgotten.

In the parallel universe where Rose and TenToo are trapped, the Arthur Conan Doyle stories don’t exist, but the real Shlock does.

Also in the parallel universe, Rose and TenToo have two babies. One they name Sherlock, and the other Clara.

The Weekly Rambling

You guys have been exposed to some real, true-to-goodness fangirling in this blog so far, but here comes the pinnacle of fan exitement. The Squeal. If you have sensitive hearing, please cover your ears now, because this baby’ll go right over the internet.

SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Okay. Now that I got that out of my system, I probably should tell you what I’m screaming about. Otherwise, you might just think I’m insane. Which might be true. So, here you have it. I can say it in one word, one very simple word.

DIVERGENT.

I’ll write a complete review later, (Who knows? I might even make a page just for book reviews.) but anyway, I love it! I finished the entire 500 pages in three hours. No lie!

Also, Loki is returning in Thor 2! Yay! Also, Joss Whedon has hinted at possible redemption for him. That makes me feel better. In Tom Hiddleston’s own words, “He (Eccleston) is the bad guy, and Chris is the hero. I’m just the firework.”

So, on to the next point. The Ninth Doctor is in a Marvel movie! Talk about the ultimate crossover! It will be really interesting to see our beloved peacemaker with a sword . . . not to mention long hair and pointy ears. That’s right, you heard me. Christopher Eccleston will be playing an elf . . . thing.

Back to Divergent. I have mixed feelings about the new movie. I don’t like Theo James, and I think they could have chosen a much better Tris, but overall I’m very happy for the people who think they can go see it, and not have the book ruined forever for them. Like the Hunger Games. Don’t shoot me. I loved the books, but the movie fell short where it mattered most.

Now I’ll go on a little rant here. I literally cannot express how much Ben Affleck should not be Batman. For me, it’s Christian Bale or nothing. And why are they making another Spider-Man movie? Andrew Garfield is a good actor, but he’s just not Spider-Man.

Back to the Who-Vengers crossover. In 2014, we’re getting The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Tom Hiddleston has already confirmed that he won’t be in it, but guess who will! Karen Gillian. Yup, our little Amy Pond has shaved of her beautiful red hair to play an angel. As did Matt Smith. Bummer. He really had great hair – better than mine, actually.

Speaking of hair, who is pleased that Loki got his hair gel back? I certainly know I am, although I have to say I rather like Thor’s long flowing locks. (Again, better than mine!)

I would also like to announce that I converted my friend – into a Sherlockian, that is. It took her about two minutes, and you could just see RDJ moving into second place. *internet high-five*

So, now you see why they’re called ramblings, not just blogposts.
