OMFG EIGHT IS IN OH MY GOD WOW!!!!!!!

*hyperventilates* I am SLAUGHTERED. This is perfect. It's PERFECT! Oh my freaking goodness, I want so BADLY to watch the Eight movie right now, he owned me right from the start—except I won't because I want to watch all Doctors in order (we won't mention Seven being the one I look forward to the most >.<) BUT ANYWAY. THIS IS IRRELEVANT. THIS MINISODE IS IMPOSSIBLY PERFECT AND I AM CURRENTLY ON THE VERGE OF DEATH

PLEASE EXCUSE ME WHILE I GO SCREAM MYSELF HOARSE IN A CORNER

(Disclaimer: didn't find it on my own, [livejournal.com profile] darknessfactor is an absolute star for telling me about this. Oh, I'd say [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon is going to die even faster and harder than I did but I'm honestly not sure that is even possible ahhhhh oh god)

*one Google search later* Oh, and happy birthday, Mister McGann. And THANK YOU ♥

I don't know the Sisterhood because not enough classics, but they seem COOL! And oh god this made me ache for all the classics and all the things ♥ It was BEAUTIFUL!
Obscure canon ftw! (The audio books too apparently!)

I was like meh should I log onto LJ tonight or read this book? Ok, just for a whi-- EIGHT WHAT WHAT DOCTOR WHOOOOOOOO

The Sisterhood were from Gallifrey, I think. Time Lord breakaways, possibly. All women. ETA: Oops, posted too soon. Obviously, all women. Hated Four and Time Lords.

Yeah, audios = canon. Can you cheat and listen to some Eight audios? That's not *technically* watching? *whistles* (It's legit weird hearing McGann speak and see him at the same time.)

Lol, you got that info whether you wanted it or not! I'm fascinated by that backstory, though.

*forever messing up my own mind for nothing*
No, you're right!! It'll be so epic to watch it all in order! (I'm sorry for trying to make you watch it out of order. /o\)

BUT young!John Hurt! Should we call him the Warrior now or what?

I wanted to, so no worries :D
You're the Evil Voice of Temptation! Nah, just kidding, no worries. I know that if I start watching extra little things here and there my orderly self will feel lost, but the temptation is there… =P It's okay though because EVERY Doctor is appealing in their own way, so that makes it all right :)
The Warrior! *shivers* Ummm, I like it. Rather better than the War Doctor…

:D (I'll try to yell "spoilers!" before blurting out things from now on, anyway.)

How great it's the 50th -- more Doctors at once, and little snippets to see.

We can alternate between them? At least it's not The-One-Who-Broke-The-Promise.

Yesssssssss ♥ I love it.

Just dropping a note to join in the massive squee - this is huge and I was so fantastically drooling at how magnificent and restrained and bloody perfect McGann is as an actor. And Moffat's writing is wondeful and it really cheers me up about the 50th!
(And they did the pun ;))

YES! McGann is the most fantastic thing omfg I can't get over it. And the writing was great! :D Haha, I'm just feeling happier and happier about so many Moffat things—like back before the finale when I was freaking out over post-Library River but it turned out fantastic… Here it was nothing so intense, but I was a bit "meh" at Ten and Rose being the only ones returning, and raising my eyebrows at the "Moffat lies" thing. But the trailers all look awesome and Ten + Eleven will be wonderful and Rose looks badass and Bad Wolf-ish and mysterious and Hurt will be the best and THEY BROUGHT MCGANN BACK and the Moffat misleading game turned out wonderfully tricky: they didn't straight out lie to the fans, which would have been kind of stupid, they gave what they had for the 50th but THEN THERE WAS THE MINISODE and THAT WAS UNEXPECTED AND EFFING BRILLIANT and I'm just having lots of feelings and love right now ♥

From: [personal profile] radiolaires
He is just jhfhkfhgf and I'm so happy because even the most anti-Moffat of the people I follow on tumblr, even the old hollywood blogs, were all freaking out because basically it's nearly 7 minutes of McGann being flipping fantastic and mastery and gorgeous and now EVERYONE wants more Eight filmed, EVEN written by Moffat, imagine. Such genuine enthusiasm, it's wonderful.
To be fair I've been trying to keep away from the trailers and previews; I just don't want to upset myself. I tried to watch the first one and was upset, both happy!upset and angry!upset (oh, I don't know how to talk English anymore). The thing is Moffat included in his script for the special some elements I simply don't want handled on screen (the Time War, the Bad Wolf, Elizabeth I...), much less in the 50th. (A bit like actually seeing the Silence before they are dead; I think it is a mistake). I am not kidding when I say I have really humongous expectations, and usually when I have humongous expectations I am disappointed. I had huge expectations for Le Testament d'Orphée for example and was not disappointed, or for The Awful Truth and was bitterly, this time. I managed to have lukewarm expectations for the Hobbit, the film, for example, because I knew that with the stretching of the book plot, the popularity of the saga, the additional characters who had no place in the Hobbit book, I knew because of that I was going to see entertainment, probably a bit overproduced, a trip to another world simply, with much less gravitas and depth than LOTR. The taste would be quite different and I was right. I was not disappointed because I came in there with lessened expectations. And I am doing the same with the 50th because, yes, more often than sometimes, I am a snob. (I once managed to throw a tantrum against fireworks. Because I thought it completely lacked artistry and was insultingly vulgar. Fireworks, for Grissom's sake.) I am not saying it won't be great, it will be, because Moffat is a mad brilliant writer with a wonderful team. It probably won't reach my level of mind-blown-wow. And that's okay, Moffat is here in a team with Emir Kusturica, Alfred Hitchcock, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Peter Jackson... Yes, surprise, Moffat already left me underwhelmed for episode I thought would be masterpieces. If he truly blows my mind this time, that's wonderful, for him and me. I just don't want to be dreadfully disappointed because I would have followed the crowd in their raving enthusiasm. I want to go there with a cool head and enjoy it as much as I did with the Hobbit, without my brain screeching how overhype it is for the whole special. Why on Earth am I talking about that? I just wanted to say I am very angry at the BBC for the way they promote their show and got distracted. I hope I didn't cool you enthusiasm in any way, because again, I trust Moffat and his team to offer us a blast, and something memorable.
This has absolutely nothing to do with the joy I felt when I saw the minisode, which was practically perfect in every way. I'm so glad they made completely canon the audios and am in awe before Moffat's writing for that little bit of bridge between classic and new Who. Just spot-on.
Wow, I don't know what happened there other than I think the paranoïa of one of my novel character is contagious. Sorry. *plans to write a horrible end for that character*

I knowwwwww ♥ It's just so exciting and refreshing when everyone is united in loving something great and there isn't just stupid bashing. I mean, I'm not the last to criticize Moffat on occasion but blind bashing is always so stupid.
I don't know who wouldn't want more Eight now ♥ Just argh.
LOL, there's nothing to be sorry about! Rambling about your feelings is always welcome, even if it's conflicted and a bit angry feelings, I was interested in seeing your POV ^_^ And I think going in there with lessened expectations is truly the cleverest way to handle this, you know yourself and your way of judging things and if it gives you the best experience, just go for it! Your way of handling The Hobbit sounds like the best thing, for instance. I'm kind of the same at times—not as far as the high expectations are concerned, but I do prefer to go "oh well, we'll see how this goes" and be pleasantly surprised. Personally it was the case at first with my anniversary expectations and I ended up very pleased with the promoting material, but I really understand where you're coming from. And I hope the cool head thing worked out and you'll be able to have a lovely time with it =)
You might be a snob, but the best kind there is ;) (Aka the not-full-of-themselves kind. High sensitivity = high expectations. Logic.)
Is the novel still a thing? ;P (Kind of didn't dare to ask earlier because you're such a busy bee and sounded a bit overwhelmed with all the stuff ;))

Eeeee. *beams* So happy you like it. Lol, yesterday I was just feeling randomly negative and trying to cling to the good things I have instead of going on and finding arguments to show I'm useless/a failure, and I was just thinking that even if I always end up feeling annoyed or blah towards most of my writing, Equation Heaven Sent was the one thing I really held close to my heart and was happy about roughly from start to finish, and I can take a breath and think: okay, I wrote this, so I'm worth at least a little something and my stupid mind can shut up. ;P /random overshare

Oh, there's a clown in that? Might have to brave the recons because it sounds like a good ep.

So happy you like it.
"Like it?" I did that copy-awesome-lines thing and realised it was like every single one and I'd only got through three paragraphs. XD Yeah, I kind of like it muchly!

Overshare as much as you want... although that wasn't "over" by any means. ;) Are you feeling less negative today? I know it's hard when your mind gets like that... Remember that you are awesome and all your writing is fantastic! Also, you are worth a lot and so not useless/a failure! ♥

THERE IS A CLOWN AND SHE IS CALLED CLARA. (I am not kidding!)
Honestly I am a bit two-minded about it, because the beginning was epic, but I was really disappointed that One was basically absent for parts 2 and 3, and imo it wasn't one of Dodo's best episodes and I don't care much for Steven, so… I loved the beginning, then a bit less.

"Like it?" I did that copy-awesome-lines thing and realised it was like every single one and I'd only got through three paragraphs. XD Yeah, I kind of like it muchly!
*glows* Thank youuuu ♥♥♥

Are you feeling less negative today?
Yep, thanks—no worries, it's only very occasional these days ;) It's actually thoroughly hilarious, because it was after I'd done lots of progress in stuff I wanted to deal with fandom-wise, so by all means I should have been very happy. But I get that thing like when I finish something big and should be feeling accomplished, I feel really empty and "what do I do with myself now?" instead—and I'd been reading great meta that made me feel kind of stupid in comparison, and silly things like that that just piled up ;) But I did try to focus on good things/get myself a good pep talk instead of just dwelling on it, so I suppose there's lots of progress there—and I thought then "it's just silly, you'll feel better in the morning", and I was right ;)

I know it's hard when your mind gets like that... Remember that you are awesome and all your writing is fantastic! Also, you are worth a lot and so not useless/a failure! ♥

I am still working on it! Want to be in the right kind of mind and stuff.

That's good! Otherwise, you have to tell us.

IT SO IS! I thought I would die when I heard the name. CLARA WAS AN ECHO AND FAILED AT THE GAMES AND WAS THE TOYMAKER'S THING AND USELESS THROUGH ALL THE EPISODE;

Then I won't have to be ashamed if I don't make it past the beginning... ;)
You totally won't! Eh, I took a 6-week break between parts 2 and 3 ;) (Admittedly due to schedule reasons, not the episode.)

That's good! Otherwise, you have to tell us.
Yes, will try that! I got much better at opening up about stuff, lol. I used to keep it all bottled up tight and things were a bit messy—it took feeling better to get a healthier attitude, funny how those things go ;)
