Title: Inferior Metal
Fandom: Doctor Who/Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles crossover
Summary: Oneshot. A glitch with a time bubble causes Cameron to come face to face with a Cyberman.
Rating: T
Notes: This is a sort-of prequel to the TTSCC series, set at the point when Cameron is first sent back from the future, and ties in with the events involving the Cybermen in the parallel universe of Doctor Who. It's just a little idea I had that I wanted to try out – if the mechanics of a time bubble accidentally got caught up with a parallel universe, what would happen when Cameron encounters their version of a "cyborg"? A couple of initial glitches with it have now been smoothed out.

indigoneutrino: (Default) book cover for a Castle/Doctor Who crossover oneshot, "Doctor In New York". It took me a while to do the TARDIS reflection in the water and you can barely see it on, so I wanted to post a bigger version here.

I was out and about today and happened to come across this blue box in a police station car park. It was locked, and even though I had my trusty sonic screwdriver (pen) to hand I couldn’t get inside. I had a look round for the Doctor but he was nowhere to be found, although I’m sure if he’d seen me he’d have said ‘hi’ since I was dressed in TARDIS blue.

But still, it isn’t every day you come across the TARDIS parked in a car park somewhere, hence the reason I’m grinning like an idiot in this photo.

I decided I wanted to photoshop some pictures of characters from The Coming of the Terraphiles, because I am bizarrely obsessed with that book. Only one of them turned out reasonably ok, so here is the hat maker Diana of Loondoon.

I always keep my sonic screwdriver pen in the inside pocket of my bag, and I was just looking for it and realised it wasn’t there. I emptied out the side pocket to look for it but it still couldn’t find it. Then I emptied out the entire contents of my bag to check it hadn’t fallen out and it wasn’t in there anywhere. I was starting to get worried at that point so I started rooting round in the bottom of the empty bag and felt something sticking out through the lining. Then I checked the pocket again and realised it had a hole in the corner - the screwdriver had fallen through and got stuck behind the lining.

I was so relieved that I found it and was smiling immensely to myself when I realised that the reason I lost my sonic screwdriver was because my bag was bigger on the inside!

I've just finished reading the Doctor Who book 'The Coming Of The Terraphiles' by Michael Moorcock. It was every bit as brilliant as expected and much funnier. I just loved all the characters, particularly Bingo Lockesley, and the descriptions of the Second Aether and the dark tides were wonderful.

Captain Cornelius was brilliantly mysterious, and I loved how his true appearance was never revealed so it's slightly ambiguous as to whether he's meant to be Jerry or not. However, the papier mache (false) Arlecchino mask and the iron (true) Pierrot mask he wears very much suggest he is meant to be an incarnation of Jerry, as those are the Commedia dell'Arte stock characters Jerry usually fills the roles of. It's also left open ended as to whether the Doctor and Amy might encounter Cornelius again, and I very much hope they do. Or maybe I'd like to read about the Doctor's past with Cornelius and that sword fight they have in Newcastle in 1918...There's just so much potential with this character and I really hope Michael Moorcock gets invited to write more DW stories.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if Moorcock was making a few nods to Blue Oyster Cult in this book. He's worked with them before, and I suspect he may have dropped in a few references to Hawkwind songs as well, but it was the BOC ones I picked up on. Bubbly Boys? The galleon Paine? Oyster Boys and Plutonia, anyone?

My favourite part of it (just pipping Captain Cornelius to the post ever so slightly) was the game of Whackit. I want Whackit to be real so much. It's basically cricket meets archery, and even though I imagine it would be a really dangerous game because of all the arrows flying around it still sounds like so much fun. I just found the idea of whackers and wotsit keepers and 'howzat!' so clever and funny, and I don't even like cricket!

I really want to start a Whackit team now. Anybody crazy enough to join me?

I was in Waterstones earlier and completely by chance came across a Doctor Who book written by Michael Moorcock. Had a bit of a giddy fangirl moment in the store when I realised my favourite fantasy author had written a book for my favourite TV show ever, and I think my delighted squeals may have attracted a few odd looks. But anyway, I bought it immediately and it's looks set to be amazing. It's called The Coming Of The Terraphiles and it's about the Doctor and Amy's trek through the Moorcockian multiverse to the planet of Miggea.

Best of all, it features Jerry Cornelius as a space pirate. How bloody awesome is that? If you've read The Inimical Prey you'll know how much I love space pirates anyway, but I love Jerry Cornelius just as much. I think I've just found a rival for Tevo for when I do the TIP sequel. ;D

I've only read the blurb and I'm trying to be disciplined and save reading the rest it for when I'm on holiday next week, but it's going to be difficult. This is literally my dream book. The only way this could possibly be cooler is if Michael Moorcock and Neil Gaiman were to co-write a multiple Doctors story featuring Nine, Ten and Eleven. (Please let that happen. If one of my DW dreams has come true why not another one?)

I don't think I'll be able to wait. I'm going to have to start reading it now.

Video to go with my AVP/Doctor Who crossover fanfic The Inimical Prey, which can be found here.

Synopsis: The Doctor goes to investigate a distress signal from a stranded space crew, but gets more than he bargained for when he discovers the planet they've crashed on is infested with xenomorphs and a hunter species that views humans as fair game.

I've tried to stick to the plot, but it was a bit difficult due to the shortage of usable clips. And just for the sake of this video, try and pretend Georgia Moffett didn't play Jenny and that she's Ailyn Tevo instead. I tried to think of another actress I could use, but actually Georgia fits the role really well.

WMG did take away the audio at first but they've let me have it back, so enjoy!

Music is 'The Howling' by Within Temptation.

Clips are the property of 20th Century Fox and the BBC.

The Master from Doctor Who is a pretty good villain. Not outright evil, just a bit crazy and messed up through no fault of his own. Gives his character more depth and also his backstory with the Doctor is interesting.

But my absolute favourite has to be Sergeant Hakeswill from Sharpe, and I particularly loved the way Pete Postlethwaite portrayed him in the TV series. Scheming, cruel and completely mad. Probably one of the most fun to watch and outright evil villains ever.

I've been reading quite a lot of Doctor Who fanfiction today and it's got me thinking. I've come across Rose/Ten, anti-Rose/Ten, Rose/Ten.5, River/Eleven, Romana/Four, Sarah Jane/Four and plenty of other ships, and it's occurred to me that although I'm happy to read just about any of them, I don't have a Doctor Who OTP.

There's plenty of people on the internet who feel that Rose was the Doctor's soulmate; or Romana was his soulmate and the only reason he ever cared about Rose was because of the aftermath of the Time War; or in fact Martha was his soulmate and he just didn't realise it because he was so hung up on Rose, and loads of other stuff like that. Personally, I don't think the Doctor should really be shipped with any single one character above any of the others that he's shown romantic inclinations towards. I think he's capable of loving more than one person at a time, in different ways but with the same intensity, and I don't think he'd ever choose between them if it came to having to spend his life with only one of them. Honestly, I think he'd choose to be alone without any of them rather than be forced to pick just one.

I know that may sound odd, knowing that he does get immensely lonely and that's the reason he has companions in the first place, but he's shown that he's capable of leaving his companions when he knows it's the right thing to do, and he would feel that it wouldn't be right to be with just one of them forever when he cares about the others just as much. He loves all of them in different ways, and out of all the people he could potentially be shipped with they all have different things that would make them a great couple, but I don't think any of them really takes precedence over any of the others.

In my opinion, the only 'person' that understands and accepts the Doctor in such a way to set their relationship apart from the others would be the TARDIS, but since the TARDIS has only ever had human form once, shipping him with a blue box would be a bit odd. So I will continue to quite happily ship him with anybody provided it makes sense and goes along with canon (mostly Ten/Rose, as this is what I'm most familiar with) but I really don't think any one romantic pairing for him stands out above the others.

I like Ten.5/Rose because I don't really think of Ten.5 as being the real Doctor, just a human version of his tenth incarnation, and since Rose was the one he truly loved throughout his tenth incarnation then it makes sense that they end up together. But I still don't think there should be any one true pairing for the real Doctor: it all depends on which incarnation he's in, as his emotions change over time and although he may feel differently about his companions, there are certain ones (like Romana and Sarah Jane) that I don't think he will ever stop loving.

If you really pushed me to say what my OTP was I'd probably say Doctor/TARDIS. That's the only relationship that remains constant and unchanging and isn't affected by what incarnation he's in or who else he may be travelling with. But like I said previously, shipping the Doctor with his spaceship is just a little odd. So I suppose what I'm really saying is that I ship the Doctor with everybody within reason, but at the same time there's nobody I truly ship him with. Honestly, I don't think he's meant to be with just one person for the rest of his life or feel like he wants to be. He's better suited to having a large number of loyal and devoted friends, and although he may have romantic feelings towards some of them, I think the fact that he's capable of loving all of them differently is what stops him from wanting to be with just a single one of them forever.

Summary: TARDIS internal monologue drabble, because the idea of personifying the TARDIS in 'The Doctor's Wife' was just too awesome to not write a fic about. The TARDIS reflects on her and the Doctor's relationship and the kind of bond that exists between them.

Okay, I'm going to archive a few of my fics here if they're complete and relatively short. May as well start with the most recent one.

Title: I Am The One You Warned Me Of
Fandom: Doctor Who / Imaginos Crossover. Mostly Imaginos, although there probably aren't that many readers familiar with what that is. Imaginos is the title character of a rock opera by Blue Oyster Cult, and he's an agent of a group of supernatural beings who are trying to change history. Or at least that's my interpretation of the album. I don't think anybody really understands it.

Rating: G
Summary: The time travelling agent of Les Invisibles encounters the Doctor in Elizabethan England.
Notes: Short mini-fic that came about because I was simultaneously trying to listen to the concept album and watch Doctor Who on TV.
