Please be aware that the mun is going through very extensive training and long hours at work this week, and her tagging will be very limited. I apologize for any delays, things should return to normal soon.

Running comes easily. It's something he knows, something that's part of him, ever since he first learned to walk. Ever since he first looked into the Untempered Schism. He runs. He runs, and he runs well.

Except over swampy, boggy areas. He doesn't run quite so well there. He does try, of course.

"Run, Sally!" he calls back. And then loses his footing. And falls, face first, onto the wet ground.
My tagging can be spotty at the best of times, but as of tomorrow I am starting an incredibly high courseload and it will be significantly spottier. RP is my hobby of choice and I will be around as much as I can. By that I mean: I'm gonna be around, but I'll be slow! Don't give up on me!

Please don't hesitate to PM or email me (naughtygirlslikepolka AT gmail DOT com) in order to communicate.
But two of my most beloved companions have passed away recently. Today, the beautiful and wonderful Mary Tamm died after a struggle with cancer. Romana I has been, and most likely always will be, one of my favorite companions. I have followed Mary Tamm's career for a long time and---yeah, this really breaks my heart. I had hoped to fulfill a lifelong dream of meeting Mary at Gallifrey One this coming year, but it was not meant to be.



On 5 June 2012, Caroline John also passed away. I adored Liz Shaw, and she was the inspiration for my own choices in life to become a scientist. I also loved Liz's amazing spin-off show P.R.O.B.E., the grown-up Doctor Who before Torchwood was even a thought in RTD's mind!



I'm so sad to see the heroes of my childhood pass away in recent years. Rest in peace to all of them.

For vanishing so suddenly and for so long. I just got back from a two-week research project on San Salvador Island in the Bahamas. There was no internet or phone and I was unable to respond to any messages. Coincidentally, there was also no air conditioning.

I had planned to write a detailed announcement of my departure the night before, but my computer decided to stop working and I spent that day running about to drop it off at a repair shop before my flight.

What did I miss?
Follows this.

The lift seemed smaller now. Maybe it was the knowledge how little time was left. Maybe it was the attitude that had changed between them since they first rode up to the room with the stars.

Maybe it was the weight of all of the things they weren't saying. Sometimes that weight would suffocate the Doctor when he was awake and alone.

The scrambling device was on again, keeping the cameras in the lift blind as to their actions. The immature side of the Doctor wanted to make a face at the cameras, simply because the Valeyard couldn't see. He didn't, of course. He just stood there, waiting.

"What will you tell him?" he asked.
Follows this.

Where she needed to be. Whatever that meant, it couldn't have been good, the Doctor supposed. Still, he didn't have any intention to move her out of the TARDIS, even when his instincts were telling him---

Well, they weren't telling him she was evil really. Just that she had a lot of secrets, and a lot of them involved him. He wasn't sure if---

Suddenly, the TARDIS shook violently as she made a rather unpleasant sounding landing. He gripped the console as she settled.

"What was that about, eh?" he asked, looking up at her. "Where've you taken us? Some sort of temporal disturbance, brought us down. That's odd."
Hopefully, this change in livejournal will not last. Until then, there's been a lovely little custom CSS change for the userpic pages. Once LJ fixes what they've broken, I will restore the beautiful layout that was made for me.

Until then, feel free to change your own pages, using this custom page layout. Thanks for the head's up, [livejournal.com profile] hey_capn_jack!

While I sincerely doubt I will move, anyone who would like to transfer to Dreamwidth is welcome to friend me at rude_not_ginger.

I will hold out as long as I can, of course. The fact that I am completely unable to use any userpics or open long threads in smaller, individual threads is starting to wear on me.
Follows this.

Hours had passed. Hours. The Valeyard was now sleeping. The two weeks that the Doctor had rested left him awake, energized. There was more than an hour in him, now, though he didn't know how long.

He reached to his side table and flipped a switch. Lights flickered around the ship, and a few of the cameras turned off. The damage done would leave the Valeyard angry, but it would keep the Doctor and the Master safe. For now. It wouldn't be long until the Valeyard worked it out, and the Doctor knew it.

So hard, sharing one body. The part of him that wanted to stay the Doctor remaining safe and secure in a small section of the tyrant's mind.

He got out of bed and slipped down the corridor, avoiding the cameras he knew were still on as he made it to the infirmary. No guards. They were switching out, now. He had a window of opportunity to make sure the Master was safe. He had to make sure. He had to see that the damage the Valeyard had done wouldn't be permanent.

He pulled open the door and stepped inside.

"Master."
Just finished up finals, struggling to make it through the holidays. Should be back for some tagging later today! I hope! I'll try!

If I'm not, don't forget:

Watch
The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe
on BBC One, Christmas Day!

Have a Happy and Heartfelt End of the Fiscal Fourth Quarter, Everyone!

Should be catching up on missing tags within the next few days. Now that classes are over, I just need to focus on finals and work. I'm sorry for the long delay on things, guys. You all are wonderful. <3

Until then:

HMD Meme
Apologies for being absent. RL has been absorbing me.
As I've said, my new flatmate is [livejournal.com profile] best_served_hot. Sometimes we have...conversations. They happen on a ridiculously regular basis.

Me: (complaining about someone making me frustrated in RP)
Her: Can the Master kill her?
Me: No.
Her: Can the Master---
Me: No.
Her: He'll put her back together...maybe!

I also play Minecraft on a fairly regular basis. I like to play games with the NPC villagers. That involve TNT. Mostly because their superior building technology annoys me. I also play this Doctor as the Valeyard with [livejournal.com profile] best_served_hot in an AU. Flatmate and I have full conversations about what they are thinking during these expeditions.

Me: I should really put some lava there.
Her: That one villager is getting away.
Me: It thinks it's getting away.
Her: If you put water there, you'll drown it.
Me: Or embed it in cobblestone.
Her: Ooooh.
Me: You know what would be better?
Her: Making one of the zombies burn up in the sunlight and having that set off the TNT you've put all over the villagers' houses?
Me: ...yes.
