So I sampled Sarah Jane Adventures! It was pretty good- not exactly my thing, really, but I enjoyed its take on the 'I deal with aliens' scenario and it's refreshing to have main characters who are all different. I especially enjoyed Rani and her mum! Incidentally, it seemed to be the week for disaster weddings, though Merlin's troll wedding was significantly sillier. Also I'm pretty willing to bet money it wasn't just magic that was making Uther act stupid. My iplayer download queue looks a little odd now because I had Merlin, Sarah Jane and then The Thick Of It. One of these things is not like the others, folks.

I am actually back home for reading week! Which means that I get to watch telly at odder times than I normally do and that led to watching a Time Team about WW2 archaeology. And they found a bunker intended for the British resistance in case of a successful Nazi invasion. The idea of Britain in WW2 is something that I grew up with- it was a long time ago and when we get taught it it always seemed that we knew we were going to win. Looking at that bunker, which was prepared for goodness only knows what, and hearing about Home Guard training (my grandpa, who was in a protected industry (making spitfires) was in the Home Guard) and how they were only expected to hold the Nazis up, not win, not live, made all a little... realer. Something to consider for fic, maybe. I dunno.

This was a bit tangenty but I wanted to share, esp. with November 11 coming up! It's not a bit of history that I knew about and I thought it was cool.

 Because if this blog isn't for self-entitled ramblings, then I don't know what it's for.

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

I asked [ profile] futuresoon , and she gave me:

kung-fu action Jesus Doctor, the Bugle, Asterix, crossovers, England-the-country )

Read this.

This is why I love Hetalia. This is why I love Doctor Who. This is why I love fandom.

Okay, here is a list of the writing that I want to get done in the next few weeks (if I don't list it here it won't get done):

1. By Any Other Name: Hetalia. England & America discuss names and naming; America learns why England called him Alfred.
Done! You can find it here.

2. First, Do No Harm: Heroes. Peter find out why Mohinder is everyone's go-to medical guy despite his PHD in genetics, and Mohinder discovers that Peter's obsession with heroics runs deep. Done, see above.

3. (POSSIBLE) Unnamed Sherlock Holmes/Mary Poppins crossover. See previous post.

4. (POSSIBLE, Depends on when my comic arrives) Crossover between Hetalia and Dylan Meconis' Bite Me!- France and Claire would get along too well. Done! Posted here.

5. LAST MINUTE ENTRY: Four Walls Sokka Broke Down. Avatar. Sokka and his ladies. Looooooong overdue fic. Not gonna happen. Sorry!

6. Sequel/Companion to Arthur Kirkland and Mr Norrell. Featuring neither of those characters. (Provisional title: Mad Dogs and Englishmen)

Yesterday was kind of less bad thatn I expected; I always manage to be unattatched on Valentine's day but I got a really cool home-made Fantastic Four valentine in the post from my friend.

ALSO Brit awards and the Arctic Monkeys winning stuff always makes me happy. And Life on Mars started on Tuesday, which was good. Will I ever get tired of Gene Hunt punching people in the face? Probably not.

Who else thinks that Doctor Who, Robin Hood and Life on Mars would make the most excellent crossover ever?
