Waves! Hello all, I'm Clocketpatch and I will be your reccer for the next fortnight. I have a mix of stories to share with you, though I'll admit in advance that the balance does skew towards Twelve, which is probably quite appropriate with the new series airing.


Story:
Honest Mistakes
Author: Singwithin
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 888
Author's Summary: The Doctor is on a mission, Clara is acting strange, and Buckingham Palace has entirely too many corridors.
Characters/Pairings: Clara Oswin Oswald, The Doctor (12th)
Warnings: None

Recced because:
This is a short fic but it packs in a fun bit of plot (Alien invasion! Undercover investigation!), along with some good Twelfth Doctor characterisation. I think Twelve’s character has evolved somewhat over the past few series, and this fic has his early days’ insults and face blindness down pat. I did have a brief “come on” moment, because surely Twelve was never quite as oblivious as the plot necessitates, but the epilogue and author’s note explain all, and left me grinning and wondering how Twelve will end up unraveling the mess he’s got himself and Clara into.

Is Capaldi more Tom-ish this season?

There's been a couple of times in episodes where he's done a sudden mad grin and I've thought "that's very Tom", and then I was scrolling through the f-list this morning and saw this:

Peter Capaldi looking like Tom Baker

and genuinely did a double take. The wicked, crinkly, mischievous TOMNESS of that is just off-the-scale as far as I am concerned.

What do you guys think?

This is a post  analysing Bill's character in all my slightly interesting quotes in the episode. I would like to thank Chakoteya transcripts, and also you, for your patience.

Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!

Rec: Sleep and the Single Time Lord

Apr. 18th, 2017 01:15 pm[personal profile] paynesgrey posting in [community profile] calufrax
paynesgrey: Joy (drwho-12joy)
Story: Sleep and the Single Time Lord
Author: nostalgia
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,324
Author's Summary: The Doctor is tired but he can't get to sleep. Can Nardole help?
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor, Nardole
Warnings: None. 
 
Recced because: After the season premiere I was searching for a fic like this, mostly because I wanted to see a fic with Nardole. It's a a spot on characterization of Nardole, and I think it's very adorable he's trying to be helpful to the Doctor and comfort him. It's a platonic piece, but I do see a hint of Nardole caring a little more for the Doctor here. Still, Nardole is the perfect company for the Twelfth Doctor after River, and the author nails their relationship. Plus, Twelve is wonderfully grumpy and spot on as well. A very enjoyable, well-written piece!

Title: Gothic Romance
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 7369 words
Characters/Pairings: Scaroth | Count Scarlioni/Clara Splinter, Great Intelligence Splinter (plus bonus guest appearances).

Summary: It is a fact universally acknowledged that any beings splintered in time will inevitably run into each other. No law says it has to end well, though…

Rec: Silence Fell

Apr. 17th, 2017 12:33 pm[personal profile] paynesgrey posting in [community profile] calufrax
paynesgrey: Doctor Who - Tardis // sakicons (drwho-tardis)
 Story: Silence Fell
Author: nerdowl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 450
Author's Summary: The universe's reaction at the end of the Time War
Characters/Pairings: The War Doctor
Warnings: None.
 
Recced because: I liked this little piece, and found it very lyrical and insightful, especially from the point of view from the universe itself as a character. It also touches on introspection of the War Doctor, and the piece feels deeper and vast in its language and portrayed feelings beyond it's small word count. Very enjoyable short fic, and it's good to see more pieces on this particular incarnation of the Doctor.
