I am existent. I have slightly more existence than a breadbox, and slightly less existence than a truck. /Coupling-Jeff-Murdoch

I hereby state an early New Year's Resolution, that I will update these much more often than I have been. Having only three classes rather than four next semester should help quite a bit.

Sorry that I sort of disappeared during December, but I did end up killing my first semester of grad school with fire. Even the design-y artistic things that freaked me out, and writing papers for the first time in three years. The thing they never tell you about library science reading is how funny it is. Lots of stealth snark about very nerdy things.

Plus, pre-Christmas exams/due-dates are the best thing ever. I can spend a near-month working and bothering the internet and writing fic, and *then* back into the breach, dear friends.

She Who Is Glorious And Should Be Worshipped, Miss Rachel Maddow, did three live shows from the 92Y in NYC the week before Christmas. And since I was done on the 20th, I went to see the first one. She was amazing, as were [personal profile] aliya , [personal profile] jesidres , and [personal profile] willwrite_fortea , who are delightful and  bravely put up with my weirdness/squee throughout dinner and the show.

Went up to MA for the holidays, saw the Grandrents and a lot of family, including my best-beloved [ profile] phantomcranefly . We all watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special together on Christmas night, and it was as nerdy and as glorious as one might expect. A trip to the Christmas Revels happened DESPITE Winter Snowpocalypse 2010, and much pagan ritual and singing were had.

And now the Mom and the FG and I are spending our usual New Year's decompression week at the Old Homestead. There are tentative plans to go see The King's Speech tomorrow.

Also? White Collar comes back in three weeks! EEEEEE. And thanks to [ profile] monkeyonthelam , I have a new awesome show, Castle, to squee about. With a pompous but nerdy and awesome Nathan Fillion, and a leading lady who brings the snark, and a work family who is nearing equal in my estimation to the BAU. What can I say, I'm hooked.

I'm also well  into the second season of The Man From UNCLE, is very hard to describe my feelings for this show. I'm not usually one for strong shipping, especially anything that's not supported in canon. But there's a first time for everything, so Illya and Napoleon have made me into a confirmed slasher.  And yeah, lots of humour and subtle spy-guy angst and "only alive on the edge of death" stuff too.

Spring semester starts the 18th, and getting through this *first* semester has helped a whole lot. I have a few shifts at my job, but I think the next demi-month or so will be spent being mostly useless and/or writing things.

Welcome Yule, Love, and Happy Holidays, all.

Disclaimer: The Doctor, Amy Pond, and TARDIS do not belong to me; they belong to Stephen Moffat and the BBC, and pretty much to the ages. I make nothing off this.
Rating: FRC. Sheer Fluff.
Genre: Het (Non-Explicit)/ Friendship / H/C(mental)
Spoilers: Nothing in particular, but in general for Series 6. Pre-Rory, anyway.

Prompt: "Doctor Who, Eleven/Amy, we've got another thing coming undone"

Note: Originally written for Free For All Friday over at  Comment_Fic , for [ profile] myconstant 's lovely prompt. I swear, I meant it to be Eleven/Amy, but it sort of got away from me.

Summary: When the bad days come, Amy always has some help to count on.

He'd never say it, of course, but Amy knew it when she saw it. )

Via [ profile] phantomcranefly , the Doctor Who Companion Test:

Rose Tyler
Rose Tyler
Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.


You're Rose Tyler!

You are spunky, determined, and as religiously devoted to your Doctor as you are to chips. (He's the only one who doesn't know how sweet you are on him, too.) You never stay put when you're told to stay put, but just when everyone expects you to get roasted by the monster of the week, you turn right around and figure out the mystery. You're sharp as a tack, but also sensitive, knowing when the Doctor needs someone to back him up or when he just needs a hand to hold. He seems to think he can get rid of you... you're quick to show him he's wrong!

Huh. )


Life update: *loud and raucous Sousa-esque fanfare* )

On the fic front: CHOAS. CHAOS. And woe. )

I'm back. So sorry, didn't get y'all any presents. :)  The best stuff I got- that is to say, time with my family- sadly non-transferable.

You can't have my Grand'rents. They're MINE. MINE ALL MINE. (I was always not that great at sharing in kindergarten.)

BOSTON TRIP! Well, sort of. Avatar and Doctor Who spoilers within )

Hmmmm. Probably should go do something useful now? ....Nah. VACATION TIEM.
