Tuesday’s Christmas Fic Rec!

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

HOW CAN I PICK JUST ONE?!? I picked three instead. 1. From Degas to Vegas, by mollyscribbles Gru decides to reform, but the girls are cool with being geniuses with a slightly less-than-legal mindset. (aka the one where they steal a Degas for Christmas) 2. Relative Terms, by Traincat Billy tries to get Teddy an […]

I wish I knew how to say these things.

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Through a combination of power outages and the (unfulfilled) hope that the right words would come if only I waited long enough, I’ve put off posting about Elisabeth Sladen. So I will just say this: The character you created in Sarah Jane Smith has served as both hero and inspiration to me. Thank you. You […]

SJA fic recs!

Monday, May 31st, 2010

I was procrastinating on writing last night, puttering around to see if I could distract myself by reading fic. And I stumbled upon all these Sarah Jane Adventures fics by paperclipbitch! Mostly Clyde/Luke, but in an adorable teenage boy kind of way. (Note: I ::heart:: the Sarah Jane Adventures, because Sarah Jane is clearly a […]

Sarah Jane Adventures, series 2, disc 3

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

thoughts on SJA in general 1. I like it. thoughts on series 2 1. They sure did seem to recycle a lot of plots from series 1. On the other hand, I guess you could call it plot follow-through, or character development or something, as opposed to just having a villain-of-the-week that was never heard […]

Sarah Jane Adventures, series 2, disc 2

Monday, January 4th, 2010

This one had the astrology eps and the beserker/pendant eps (with Clyde’s dad). Things I like about the Sarah Jane Adventures (or just things I noticed in particular while watching these episodes): 1. Sarah Jane Smith is (in canon) at least 58 years old! (Elisabeth Sladen was born in 1948, making her slightly older, even.) […]

The Sarah Jane Adventures, series 2

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

I just finished watching the first disc (eps 1-4, or 1-2 if you take into account that they’re all 2-parters). I miss Maria! (Actually, I miss Alan — he was my favorite character!) Series 2 so far seems to be very much “Doctor Who Lite.” First up was the Sontarans, whose name I totally didn’t […]

TARDIS Big Bang is live! Woohoo! 45 long, plotty stories to read and enjoy, plus lots and lots of art to “wow” over. What I’ve Read So Far: 1. Sing Morning Out of Night, by Copperbadge (sam_storyteller) Hey, it’s by Copperbadge, what’s not to love? Has Sarah Jane and Luke, plus Torchwood, plus UNIT, plus […]

Doctor Who (et. al.), Life Lessons

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

After I wrote about all the astoundingly (un)useful lessons I accidentally absorbed from Star Trek, I got to thinking — what about Doctor Who? After all, it’s another science fiction show I watched as a kid (and still watch now, along with its cute spinoff cousin “The Sarah Jane Adventures” and its crazy spinoff cousin […]

Sci-Fi Friday, May 30

Problems I Had With The Sarah Jane Adventures “The Lost Boy” Arc Ignoring The Past: I wanted to reach into my television, grab Sarah Jane by the shoulders, look into her eyes and say, “Sarah Jane. Use. Your. Brain. Not to be all focused on physical appearance, but Luke *has no belly button.* He is […]

TV Night

Friday, May 9th, 2008

I ::heart:: The Sarah Jane Adventures. Here’s why: 1. They have a cute message, which is essentially “keep trying.” Who can’t get behind that? 2. They model good behavior — seriously, in the one with the nuns? Sarah Jane, Luke, and Clyde were surrounded by *nuns,* and not even a huge number of nuns, just […]
