Man, having now finished rewatching alias season 3, 1. I think Lauren is probably one of the series’ better spies 2. does anyone actually not believe in Rambaldi and 3. THAT FINALE RETCON IS STILL THE STUPIDEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED IN POSSIBLY ALL TELEVISION.
Introducing The Joy of Recs Podcast! A test pilot episode so please listen and give feedback.
As the preamble says, the Joy of Recs is one part fandom classics compendium, one part recs from across my reading history, and one part oral history of fandom. Hosted by cicak/cicaklah a fandom veteran and obsessive consumer of fanfic for 17 years, but at her heart a nobody.
In the podcast I say that the author is unknown. However, 5 seconds of googling just now identifies her as now going by grindylowe. So. Obviously this podcast is off to a good start.
So I decided I’d jump on this podcast bandwagon and start by talking about my favourite fics of all time.
Please listen if you like fandom, people saying erm a lot, vocal fry, my randomly rough English accent and if you listen carefully, my german housemates bonking in the background.
Also if you’ve ever wanted to know how to pronounce my username but were afraid to ask.

OH GOD I DON’T KNOW WHY I CLICKED THE LINK. Now the rest of my evening will be spent crying and looking at dresses that cost half a semester’s tuition.
I sympathise. I don’t know why I look at them, but they are just so beautiful. One day I’ll have a spare two grand to spend on a dress, and the body to wear it. And then honestly, I’ll never take it off, and be the weirdo who wears the green evening gown to buy milk.
Sometimes I really miss some long dead fandoms. Especially ones where the sands of the internet has swirled them away.
After a day of Alias season 3 marathon with a migraine I think I’m going to convert to Rambaldism.
Anonymous said: Have you heard about Peter Capaldi refusing to act a romantic relationship with Clara? Do you think he'll do well, or be smothered by Moffat?
From what I’ve gathered, Peter Capaldi is a huge fan of Doctor Who that pretended to be a huge Moffat stan until he’d signed an airtight contract, at which point he revealed he hates the direction Moffat was taking the show he loves, plans to systematically undo it to the best of his ability, has been openly mocking and refusing the participate in parts of the script he doesn’t think are true to the character, and insisting that they “won’t chase him off this show,” which is basically saying “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”
I think the new season of Doctor Who is going to be glorious.
I kind of want a show that is just Capaldi on the set of Doctor Who mocking the script and butting heads with Moffat.
the enemy of my enemy is my doctor
Purely because of everything I’ve heard about Peter Capaldi, I might actually start watching Doctor Who again. Because this man is on a fucking mission.
okay maybe, just maybe, I’ll give this show a shot again
So honestly I’m going to need to see some receipts before I dedicate myself to returning to this literal shitshow.
I honestly do not think this is true. I would like it to be true. I would like it if hiring a seasoned and experienced actor rather than an up and comer would have given Moffat someone who would say ‘no’ to him like he desperately needs. But honestly that person needs to be further up the chain than Capaldi, otherwise honestly, the doctor will just regenerate.
I am attempting to work from home today, but instead its like one tab of fic, one tab of CHD prevalences, one tab of fic, lets not lie, ten tabs of fic, five tabs of ASOS, Hawksley Workman on the stereo, texting ten people and sitting in my pajamas.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.
Also this is not helping my urge to write lots of due South and kill everyone else with feels. I have other projects! I was going to be a novelist! Oh, the mountie.
