Eleventy-nextth

The Pending Doctor
     So.
     Matt Smith. He's cheeky. He knows how to run to trouble, and away from big blowy-up flaming steam-punk trouble. With Billie Piper,* no less.
     In the words of Violet?
     I think I Gotta Date.

* Ruby In the Smoke, Part Deux, for those who are interested.

I love Shadow in the North. :) And I am cautiously optimistic. He's very good in those movies. But his hair! That's some insane hair.

Ah, but then we've had some insane hair throughout the Doctor's history, neh? Not the least of which has graced the head of our most recent incarnation.

And by the way, my dear - a belated, and most shamefaced, happy birthday to you!

I know! And I do love David Tennant's hair. A lot. But I sort of feel like Eleven should be different! And that's some vaguely similar hair there. And Moffat apparently loves it. I think it doesn't help that he sort of reminds me of Tennant in face shape and body type. The distinct difference from one doctor to another in the past makes me feel, a little, like they're too similar.

Thanks! :)

It was your birthday?! Well, happy birthday dollface!

I'm getting good vibes for this guy. I like the way he waggles his fingers when searching for a word and I like his weird face shape. He's somehow already alienish.

It was, yesterday! Thanks!

I agree. He is rather alienish! (which seriously, that hair helps with.) I feel good about this. I'm glad it's not someone super well known. I haven't stopped in at TWoP yet--is it insane?

Apparently people are taking it more in stride than elsewhere on the internets. cutecouple posted this which made me laugh:

I guess you can pretend that the package you should be receiving this week is a birthday present. Yeah...I meant to do that...

Heeeeee "RPattz would have been better." That's awesome. Glad people aren't totally freaking out. I keep meaning to get back to that whole TWoP thing and then getting super busy or just crapping out. I suck.

Oooh package! Awesome. I have something to send to you too, I should get on that.

Twilight snark ends up in the oddest placest these days. It's fantastic.

(We've totally hijacked poor kaffyr's LJ now. I think I owe you a proper email response?)

I don't mind having a thread hijacked. Hell, it gives me more to bounce off.

"RPattz would have been better" - and here I thought that was some inverted nickname for Paterson Joseph, because I'm completely uninvested in Twilight.

Hee. That's kind of hilarious. (and also probably good for you.) He's Cedric in Goblet of Fire, if that helps!

TWoP actually seems quite decent; a lot of people are either reasonably pleased, or at least willing to give Smith the benefit of the doubt. Jacob seems pleased, certainly.

Oh good. I was slightly nervous about an explosion that I didn't really want to read through.

I can't quite see the resemblance, because Smith's face, whilst alien, has rounder promontories, if you will. His lips are much less thin, his nose has a little more roundness, his eyes are not set quite as deeply, nor set in quite the same manner.

Yeah, I think you're right there. I haven't really seen enough clear pictures or video to judge well based on what I've seen recently--and while I remember him from the Ruby in the Smoke movies, I don't have his face memorized.

Ooh just noticed! That icon is great. I need some classic DW icons. Of course, I need a paid account for that and I don't know if I care that much.

I definitely don't care that much. I just keep deleting one and adding another. It's more fun (for me) to keep it in flux.

I love having a paid account, and still regret that I couldn't put together the money for a permanent account, but I'm like you when it comes to icons. I have a file that's edging up into the three figures as to numbers of icons, and I try to swap a few out here and there on a regular basis. It's fun.

I really need to give up on a few of mine that I never use and get more in. I probably don't need so many Ten icons either. (but they're so cuuuute!)

Nah, you don't need a paid account. Just gank some good'uns and then swap 'em out whenever you feel like it. Feel free to gank from me, and I'll let you know who to credit.

True. Thanks, I might!
