I've been talking with a_phoenixdragon about the uproar in the Doctor Who fandom over the new Doctor. We got onto the topic about how the Moff takes so much blame and hate from the fans and he needs hugs. Well, I think all of them need hugs, but Moff and Matt are at the top of the list right now. So I had an idea, but it's more of a thing at the moment.

When I go to England and the convention, I was planning to take along a letter to Matt thanking him for the wonderful years as the Doctor and all the other usual stuff in a fan letter. Might do one for the Moff too. So, why not make this a little bit bigger. Not the first time I've tried to coordinate something like this.

If you would like to send a letter along to Matt (or the Moff, one of the other actors attending etc) PM me and I'll send you my mailing address. Let me know it's coming and I'll make up pretty packages for them and take them to the convention. I don't know that I'll be able to get them to the people, but it has to be worth a shot. Lets just stick with letters or a drawing this time around though. I'm limited on the amount of weight I can carry around and I'll have my bag with me at the convention.


Okay, with that done, I had an idea for a new piece last night, so I'm going to start it today. Don't know where it's going and I think I'll draw some uproar in the fandom when I post it. I'll also try to get to some other stories today. Watch for the usual suspects to be updated at some point throughout the day. We've been open for almost an hour and there's no play.

Well, my stomach is feeling better. When I say that, I mean it's no longer trying to crawl up my chest and out of my mouth whenever I think about food. I wish there was some magical cure to make me feel better, but the weather has stabilized for a week and I really think that's playing a role in this. Whatever the hell it is, I'll take it. :) I don't like feeling sick.

I haven't said anything about the 12th Doctor, yet, but have had a couple of days to watch interviews with him and see some of his history and I think he'll be an interesting Doctor. More towards the Classic era than we've had in the new episodes, but it's time to take a look back towards Classic, I think. I saw a wonderful quote from Neil Gaiman about how regenerations are running out and the fandom is panicking. He said that he believes (and made it a point to say this is not cannon) that the Time Lords can regenerate as many times as they want, but going past body 13 is dangerous and has consequences. Given how the Master looked in his 13th body, I can really believe that. *shudders* Then again, there was other stuff with him that added to how he looked, so that's neither here nor there. I also like the idea of an older Doctor again. The dynamic between him and Clara is going to change and I agree with something I saw on pintrest, he'll be more of a father figure now. The best friend dynamic is back and that makes me so happy. *grins*

Great, I have stupid in count and stupid in cage.

Okay, anyway, back to Doctor Who. I'm not saying I'm not going to miss Matt. I'm probably going to have a shock blanket and box of tissues with me at Christmas time. I also have to watch the episode alone because I have no local Whovian friends who will be in town that day to watch it with me. Matt is far and away my favorite Doctor since Four and I was heartbroken when he regenerated. I'm also excited to see what new energy Peter is going to bring to the role and the show. This is going to be very interesting. I do hope they do more with River because I'd love to see the change in dynamic there. :)

My trip is getting ever closer. I'm so excited I can't wait. I need to print off a few more directions and then all I need are tickets/hotel/transportation. The travel agent isn't exactly quick on these things. I think I might need to poke at her again. I found the picture I want to take in case of a Matt autograph, but haven't found one for Tom Baker yet. Still need to do that. Also wish the convention page would update with more information. I really am not too impressed with these guys. Oh well, one day out of ten and with fellow fans. Hopefully I can find some people to talk to.

Terrifying Fact Number Two, is that I’ve just watched Matt Smith carrying a flaming torch on screen. Oh, it’s for such a thrilling scene in Episode 12. Really and truly, magnificent and epic. A proper movie moment. But never mind that, it’s Matt carrying a FLAMING TORCH. Look, Matt’s lovely, he’s a magnificent, brand new, hilarious, heartbreaking, heroic Doctor — but the fact is, if that man walks into a room with a coffee then it’s only so long before you’re wearing it. No, really, clumsiest man on earth. He walks like he’s in a constant state of surprise at his own limbs. I remember when he turned up at a Worldwide meeting really early on, and the first thing he did was spill a cup of coffee over a rather lovely woman. Naturally she giggled, flushed and introduced her mother. (Ahh, life when you’re Matt ! I accidentally made eye contact with the same woman — she phoned the police and shot me in the face.) On the way out he apologised to a completely different woman for the coffee incident. “That was the wrong woman,” I said, as he went out the doors. “Nope,” he replied, “That was the second cup.” Oh, and there was the top secret, very special, extra readthrough for Episode 10 and Matt came striding in with a GUITAR ON HIS BACK. I have honestly never seen a whole roomful of people flatten themselves against a wall with such a high-pitched squeal of terror. Except Karen, of course, who trotted along behind him without a care in the world. Oh, the horror as the Doctor spun and chatted and coffeed a series of delighted women. How that guitar arced and scythed! Swish! Get down, Karen! Swish! Karen, save yourself! Swish! Not her face, Matt, NOT HER FACE!! Ah, the memories. You know, to this day I’m not sure if Matt knew he had a guitar on his back — he might just have collided with a musician. — Steven Moffat,
