Stuff and planned updates

Well, my stomach is feeling better. When I say that, I mean it's no longer trying to crawl up my chest and out of my mouth whenever I think about food. I wish there was some magical cure to make me feel better, but the weather has stabilized for a week and I really think that's playing a role in this. Whatever the hell it is, I'll take it. :) I don't like feeling sick.

I haven't said anything about the 12th Doctor, yet, but have had a couple of days to watch interviews with him and see some of his history and I think he'll be an interesting Doctor. More towards the Classic era than we've had in the new episodes, but it's time to take a look back towards Classic, I think. I saw a wonderful quote from Neil Gaiman about how regenerations are running out and the fandom is panicking. He said that he believes (and made it a point to say this is not cannon) that the Time Lords can regenerate as many times as they want, but going past body 13 is dangerous and has consequences. Given how the Master looked in his 13th body, I can really believe that. *shudders* Then again, there was other stuff with him that added to how he looked, so that's neither here nor there. I also like the idea of an older Doctor again. The dynamic between him and Clara is going to change and I agree with something I saw on pintrest, he'll be more of a father figure now. The best friend dynamic is back and that makes me so happy. *grins*

Great, I have stupid in count and stupid in cage.

Okay, anyway, back to Doctor Who. I'm not saying I'm not going to miss Matt. I'm probably going to have a shock blanket and box of tissues with me at Christmas time. I also have to watch the episode alone because I have no local Whovian friends who will be in town that day to watch it with me. Matt is far and away my favorite Doctor since Four and I was heartbroken when he regenerated. I'm also excited to see what new energy Peter is going to bring to the role and the show. This is going to be very interesting. I do hope they do more with River because I'd love to see the change in dynamic there. :)

My trip is getting ever closer. I'm so excited I can't wait. I need to print off a few more directions and then all I need are tickets/hotel/transportation. The travel agent isn't exactly quick on these things. I think I might need to poke at her again. I found the picture I want to take in case of a Matt autograph, but haven't found one for Tom Baker yet. Still need to do that. Also wish the convention page would update with more information. I really am not too impressed with these guys. Oh well, one day out of ten and with fellow fans. Hopefully I can find some people to talk to.

I'm totally excited for Peter - and really stoked for his Doctor. But I also wanna keep Matt - DILEMMAS!!

I can see this is going to be a heartbreaking Christmas...

From rumors, I'm guessing the Matrix (and High Council) had a lot to do with control of regens (so they wouldn't get another Rassilon). So maybe we'll see 14th and 15th?! That would be awesome... S'not like the Doctor ever had an
easy regen' anyhow, lol!

And I'm thinking the dynamic will be awesome. I'm definitely excited! And I've seen how Moffat has been steering it back to Classic (subtly, but there) and I approve!

*HUGS*

Glad you feel better, bb!!

IT'S THE CURSE OF THE TIMELORDS!!!! Okay, I'll stop shouting now. *Grins*

I love the cards I'm seeing that the fans have made saying they're killing off the 11th Doctor, Happy Christmas. They make me laugh and be sad at the same time.

I've kinda seen those too. The Time Lords are so secretive about everything, who knows exactly what they can and can't do. I think we'll see the show going for a long while yet.

Me too! Classic fans rejoice. I love the "best friend" dynamic with the companions. Like Donna and Ten. I think those are my fav episodes for Ten because they remind me so much of Classic. Same thing when Rory started coming along full time with Eleven.

Thanks.

*hugs*

Oh, yeah, I finally got the book in the mail. Had to wait until payday. I have a tracking number for it, I'll message you later. This is just in case I get busy and forget.

I'm going to miss Matt, but I'm very excited to see what Peter Capaldi will bring us. I like that it's changing things up a bit, even just with the age. (Not that I'm not going to cry. I always cry. ;_;)

Glad the weather stabilized a bit for you. Yay for feeling better! :)

It's hard to watch a favorite regenerate. I actually didn't cry with Nine and Ten, but I know I'm going to here. This is going to really do some awesome things for the show and I can't wait to see what all happens next.

Me too, thanks :)

*hugs*

I am glad your tummy is feeling better. Now for best! :-)

Ooo, yes, new Doctor! I wish I could be there for you when 11 regenerates :( *hugs you lots*

Stupid is as stupid does. Have some chocolate?

Yay for writing!

Thanks. *hugs*

I was surprised how they choose someone old, again, and I liked the merlin-ish thingy going on so far: getting older but the body is younger, it's like a paradox or dunno, had a charm, but now it's combo breaking time. XD

I just hope 11th won't be alone when he regenerates, because last time it broke my heart, seeing him all alone, and on top of that, he didn't want it...

*hugs*

I think it's going to be really interesting to see what the new dynamic is for the show. :)

He shouldn't be because Clara is going to be there next season (Jenna is confirmed) so she should be in the TARDIS when the Doctor regenerates. I just hope he has time to explain it before it happens. This could get interesting...

*hugs*
