( Spoilers for my book. )
I can't tell you what a gift these books are in the midst of 2017. You should all have your pairings of 14 years ago come back to soothe you. Or not soothe, but whatever this is. Maybe if we all make it to 2028 Franklin and Bash will miraculously suddenly return and deal with all their issues from the end of s4 in emotionally wrought ways that at least slightly distract from all the wars and total lack of civil liberties.
(Seth Green is making a thing and Breckin Meyer is going to be in it. WITH HIS ACTUAL FACE. I thought that was never going to happen again.)
My MP has written back to my email about the DUP, and he says that actually he has a lot of friends in the DUP and that although he understands 'concerns from the lgbt community' he feels sure that they can work together for the good of everyone in the country. I hate him so much. And obviously I would really like it if we didn't destroy lgbt rights and everything, but I didn't even mention them. My email was about abortion, it wasn't just vaguely about abortion, I literally told him that he couldn't appropriately represent me in parliament if he didn't think that safeguarding my rights to a clean and safe abortion was important. But no, no reassurances there. I mean LGBT stuff, that's quite political isn't it, and we wouldn't want to mess up and lose votes. But denying basic rights to women... that's a bit more debatable.
Hello everyone! And welcome any new listeners!
So, my episode reviewing 'Knock Knock' is finally here! And this time around I talk lots about everything from my experiences at the recent local Doctor Who convention 'Wholanta', to laying down a few delightful podcast recommendations, to some musing on the whole Race!Fail period of S3 and all that really great meta that come out of all of that WAY BACK on LiveJournal (remember that site?), to Jo Grant's grandson as the Iron Fist (!), and on to dark fairy tales and (mis)interpreting them, to British English spellings vs. American ones, and to some classical geeking about Dryads, all the way to musing a bit about this adventure as an episode of the reality show 'The Real World'. Phew!
So, I truly hope you will all join me for this episode and, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Do enjoy the ride!

02. As though just intuiting the world's lack of care, dreamwidth has eaten up my drafted post of great emotion about my book. Which is fine. But I love it so much I can't really manage, and I was doing well at reading slowly until yesterday I binged loads of it and now I feel sick. ( Some spoilers. )
03. I am bored. Like a child.

( Symbolism )
A while after I posted it I posted it to Tumblr, someone asked that I put a fifth stripe in, to represent invisible illnesses (which I had folded in with both mental illness and physical disability, but she pointed out that people with invisible disabilities are often made to feel that they don't count, or are "faking," and being specifically acknowledged would help break that stigma, and as she is someone with an invisible disability, I took her word for it.
Well, yesterday, I was in the mood to work on something visual, so decided to take a bit of time to tweak this... Half a day later, I got this:

(The flag's symbolism is much the same as described above, with the fifth color [Purple] representing invisible illness.)
And, because I forgot to write this down the first time, and had to figure out how to do it again from scratch:
( Method of construction )
Fandom: Mass Effect trilogy
Character/Pairing: Jane Shepard
Music: Ready for the Storm - Dougie Maclean
Content notes: Nothing beyond what's in the games. Some explosions, physical triggers-wise, but not particularly fast cuts.
Summary: "The lighthouse will keep shining out." (Or, Shep is the bravest little toaster.)
Notes: Thank you so much to beccatoria for the clips, to shinyjenni for technical help and endlessly patient beta-ing, and walkthegale and cosmic_llin for beta-ing and cheerleading! <3
Spoilers: Very big ones for all 3 games!

That was pretty much the highlight of Gatiss's episode, so let's move on to the triumphant return of Rona Munro.
( You never hear the spoilers. )
2. It's always nice when the internet takes time out to hate Joss Whedon. And I know it's not like we lack people hating Joss Whedon any more, but it still feels vaguely reassuring to me when it happens.
3. Day 7: A song to drive to
Immediately on reading this I was trying to pick my favourite car song, and it was going to be difficult, because I love a lot of them but I do think the best one is absolutely Little Deuce Coupe and I also think that's a bit obvious and I might have had to pretend to have a better answer. (I really like 455 Rocket by Kathy Mattea, which is about her wrecking her beautiful car and I love the line 'as we skid I thought I heard the angels sing... it sounded like the beach boys'.)
But then I read the actual question, and the best song to drive to is this, without question:
Because INSTANTLY you are amazing, and every gear change is the coolest you have ever been, and cornering is a dream, and you are basically dancing.
2. I don't like leeks.
3. A song that makes you want to dance:
(All the versions of this with Marc Bolan's face in them are blocked in my country, I'm not just weirdly denying you his face.)
Which I have, or near enough for my purposes.
