Time is not my friend at the moment, so a proper post on the amazing Class finale has not yet been written. However, I came across this brilliant post that you should all read, as it delves into all the ways the show is smart and so much more than what it at first appears to be:

It occurs to me I've been on twitter a lot the last two months, but nowhere else. So - hi. Still here. Grieving, but here.

Comments disabled as I think I've had as much sympathy as I can handle (it's much appreciated, just A Lot sometimes).

oh yeah dr who was pretty great this week, but i am holding back on whether i love it based on how certain plotlines are dealt with next week. i do however have a new appreciation for john simm. i still prefer michelle gomez but lbr she's the best master since delgado so she'd be hard to beat.

Funny because it is true.

Meanwhile Corbyn was at Glastonbury, as full of hope for a better world as if it was 1968 and with thousands chanting his name. What even is this year?

So, last weekend was very very busy, only saw this episode on Monday and have been vaguely attempting to write something in the days that followed.

It's a lovely, lovely episode, and deserves far better than these scattered thoughts, but I know tonight's episode will be quite something so felt the need to post SOMETHING, before the story moved on.

So here it is. Very basic, barely cover a quarter of what I'd like, but it's better than nothing... Oh and a great deal is Promethia's, literally.

Of Letters Never Sent (792 words) by [ profile] SelenayDoctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Bill Potts
Additional Tags: Vignette, Character Study, Episode Tag
Series: Part 6 of Collected Bill Stories (Doctor Who)

Summary: She asked the Doctor once about visiting her younger self and he'd given her a two hour lecture about time and paradoxes and theories about time stability. She hadn't understood all the maths he'd scrawled on the blackboard, but she'd followed enough of it to work out that meeting her previous self was a Very Bad Idea.

50 Misc. Icons

skye_writer: (bang)
Below the cut are 50 icons from miscellaneous fandoms, mostly Pacific Rim (and all of Mako Mori). Others include TRON: Legacy, Doctor Who, Portal and Portal 2 (all the text icons), The Avengers (2012), and The Force Awakens.

1. You don't have to ask, but I would like to know which ones you take. :)
2. PLEASE, save the icon to your computer. DO NOT HOTLINK IT. These are hosted on my ancient Photobucket account, and I don't want to use up all my bandwidth and have my pictures (including these icons!) unavailable.
3. ALSO PLEASE: Credit me ([personal profile] skye_writer ) wherever you use the icons you take. Just link back to this journal.

Title: The Coronation of the High Hierophant (AO3) | (Teaspoon)
Author:[personal profile] circular_time
Rating: T
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Fifth Doctor/Nyssa (mostly platonic)
Word Count: 51K Words, 8 chapters, IT'S DONE IT'S FINALLY DONE
Summary: On a human colony where Baroque France and classical Rome are so far in Earth’s legendary past that both are mined for “wisdom of the ancients,” the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa are swept into a fantastic world of pageantry, allegory, advanced gravitational engineering, dance and court intrigue.
The Doctor believes Nyssa has found true love. Nyssa believes she has found someone who needs their help. After the Doctor leaves Nyssa to her new life, she’s forced to embrace the masquerade far more deeply than she had intended. Will the Doctor defy the Web of Time to extricate her from the jaws of history?

If you haven't heard of The Great Get Together, have a look! There might be something happening near you!!

It's in memory of Jo Cox, celebrating her message, and very much what we need right now. And just look - a media first! The Sun & Daily Mirror print a shared editorial backing The #GreatGetTogether inspired by Jo Cox, and The Telegraph and The Guardian have written a joint opinion piece celebrating #MoreInCommon. (Follow link above to see them.)

And here are four former Prime Ministers:

"We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us."
Jo Cox, firs speech to Parliament.

(And also, you should all go watch The Last Leg. <3)
