FanscinationA summary of what Doctor Who means to one fan.Fanscination by ~Betawhofic
What is it about this show
that truly fascinates me so?
Dodgy monsters, flimsy plots,
amazing literature it's not.
Then why does it so grab my heart?
Make me smile, make me hurt?
Leave me wondering week by week
what fascinating thing they'll meet.
Is it the monsters? Is it the girls?
Is it the man with the hair and curls?
Is it the future and the past?
The possibilities and laughs?
Does it soothe my mind, light my day
just because it's bright and gay?
It's not real deep, it's not real dire
but I always feel I'm lifted higher.
Maybe that's the thing I need
an escape from hate and greed.
A happy man, a cheerful ship
And all of space and time to rip.
And the 12th Doctor is....It's official! The 12th Doctor will be Peter Capaldi!And the 12th Doctor is.... by ~bluerest49
Yes yes, I know, it's quite a change from young Matt Smith, which will take some getting used to... but Peter is a great actor and I know that he will make a great Doctor.
In fact, most of you probably already know this, but, Peter played Caecilius in 'The Fires of Pompeii', so I'm sure he already has a love for the show, which is an extremely important quality when picking the next actor for the part.
Okay, the downsides to Peter Capaldi joining the show in season 8? MATT SMITH, MY DOCTOR, IS GOING TO REGENERATE AND LEAVE AND I'M NOT SURE I'LL BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT. *Deeeeeeeeeeep breathes....* But that's okay, I suppose because after all, that's what Doctor Who is all about -- change. That's what made it possible for this fantastic show to continue on for 50 incredible years.
Also, Matt still has 2 episodes left, one of which will be an extended episode, THE 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL, with DAVID TENNANT -- which is
Prologue to, He waits in shadows, Doctor Who FFHe leaned against the door frame of his rickety old home. Slowly the old man lowered himself to the grassy ground. Quickly and quietly he took in and let out the cool night air. Every breath pained him, every gulp of air a stab in his side.Prologue to, He waits in shadows, Doctor Who FF by *DanielsDoodles
The man was dying. Death came to visit. She finally got even.
"About time…" smiled the Doctor.
When he was younger the Time Lord ran from his death or found a way to negate it, but not now. Everything has its time and everything ends, that's what his Sarah-Jane said to him so many lives ago. If he was tought one lesson from all those shining faces, from all those fleeting lives, one lesson that shone brighter than any other. Live life and face death with dignity. That's what he looked for in his companions in the end. In over 2,000 years this was the only real truth he had ever learned. He hoped that the people of the universe would hold onto that thought in their last moments.
At the end of all things, on the day he was needed
The Day I Failed To Save YouJust that once, she was a little too late. She didn’t see what dealt the final blow; hadn’t been able to see it coming. All she could do was to fall to her knees at his side where he lay in a bank of snow, the man who looked far too young to die, and she could have slapped him – because he was smiling.The Day I Failed To Save You by *Gallifrey-Pirate
“My Clara,” he said, one hand clasped to his chest as if it could hold in the imminent burst of energy. A glistening streak upon his face betrayed a tear, the sight of it cutting her to the core.
“Doctor, I’m sorry. I wasn’t quick enough. I should’ve been here. I’ve always been here. It’s what I’m supposed to do.” Her own tears fell now. She was beyond furious at failing to protect him.
“Well you’re an idiot,” he replied with a soft laugh. “This isn’t the end, and you know it. All those times you can’t quite remember, all those times you were there for me – I still chan
