So, I've spent the past month or so neck-deep in Doctor Who. I'm not even sure what spurred it on- I've been lurking in the fandom since before series 5 started, and have been meaning to actually watch
the show for about as long if not longer. But something (probably River Song) made me finally actually watch. I've seen most of series 1, all of series 5, and significant portions of series 6. I've asked for all the DVDs for Christmas, hoping someone gets me some of them.
None of that is the crazy part, though. Lurking in fandoms without watching the show is becoming normal for me, and so is mainlining the show once I finally get around to watching it. No, the crazy part is that this fandom has me learning to vid
, because music is now all about Doctor/River for me* and I am downloading fanmixes and fanvids and whatnot like crazy and everything is Doctor/River omg.
But one song struck me particularly, as in I knew exactly what clips from which episodes I wanted to see put to certain lines, and as everyone knows, the best way to do something to one's specifications is to do it oneself.
Anyway, here's what I said about it on my tumblr-( Collapse )
* (on a random and not really related note- I multiship the Doctor, but Doctor/River is my favorite. Doctor/Rose? Yes please. Doctor/Jack? Absolutely, though only pre-Ianto [CoE never happened and you can't convince me otherwise]. Doctor/Master? Hell yes. Doctor/Martha? I can be convinced! And may well be, once I've seen her episodes. I even kind of like Doctor/Amy/Rory, though it's... sort of awkward now that we know he's married to their daughter, even if I'm reading fics I know were written when we barely knew River.)
