I'm all moved in. Still in boxes but I have all the time in the world to unpack. Unless, you know, I desperately need something and I have to empty all of 'em.

No guy in my life. New apartment. New job. New beginnings. Hopefully, everything stays. :)

Stephen Furst has passed away, due to complications from diabetes. He was 63.

From his offical Facebook page:

"To truly honor him, do not cry for the loss of Stephen Furst. But rather, enjoy memories of all the times he made you snicker, laugh, or even snort to your own embarrassment. He intensely believed that laugher is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now. [...] And no matter who you are, when you think of Steve, instead of being sad, celebrate his life by watching one of his movies or use one of his bits to make someone else laugh - really, really hard."

Next on my reading list was To Catch A Pirate by Jade Parker, which promised a historical swashbuckling romance. And it ended up being exactly what I was hoping for.

Summary on the back: When Annalisa Townsend’s ship is set upon by pirates in search of her father's treasure, one of the crew, James Sterling, discovers her in the hold. When he moves to take her necklace, she begs him not to, as it is all she has left of her mother. He accepts a kiss in exchange for the necklace. "A fair trade, m'lady," he tells her afterward, before disappearing. A year later, with a forged letter of marque, Annalisa is intent on hunting down the wretched James Sterling and reclaiming her father's treasure from him. But now she’s in danger of him stealing something far more vulnerable this time: her heart.

My thoughts: I was in the mood for something very light and fluffy and To Catch A Pirate certainly delivered. My expectations were quite low, so I ended up being very entertained by James and Annalisa's adventures and quite adorable romance, even as instantaneous as Annalisa's infatuation was. I adored the piracy and sea-faring aspects of the story, and while completely far-fetched at times - okay, often, the entire book had an enjoyable whimsy about it that kept me turning pages.

I do wish the characters had been a bit older - I think I'm getting old in that every time I read book with teenagers being captains of a ship I just roll my eyes - and a bit more build up to the romance would have been nice, but overall I had few complaints with the delightful escapism of the tale.

Okay, I've been meaning to post these for weeks now but Real Life (TM) keeps getting in the way, and instead I've just spent my evenings watching random stuff on Youtube.

(One of the benefits of having a new fandom is getting all these new things to look at online -- it's like discovering a whole new internet! My current playlist consists of con panels that include Michelle Gomez, because she is the best and I want to marry her. No, seriously, you have to watch this Q&A from last year, it's absolutely hilarious (this one with her, Capaldi and Coleman is also good, with added bonus of Capaldi doing an impression of a dalek and revealing that he watches fanvids (but doesn't read fanfic because "rude things happen in them"))

I'm all caught up with the show now (and by all caught up, I mean up to "Lie of the Land", because the next episode only airs here tomorrow DON'T SPOIL ME), and I meant to post my notes about the next three episodes as well, but I haven't had the brain to do it yet so here are just some random thoughts about "Knock, Knock" and "Oxygene".

But first, on a more general note: I've been trying to figure out what it was that suddenly this season turned me from a casual watcher to an actual fan. The last season was the first Moffat season that I can honestly say that I enjoyed, Capaldi finally made me like the Doctor (if you've read my previous Doctor Who posts, you may remember that I really, really, really didn't like the Doctor before and have been watching the show all these years despite of him rather than because of him), and I think the last three episodes of series 9 were among the best episodes of all of new!Who (in fact, I'd probably put "Heaven Sent" on my Top 10 list of favourite episodes of anything, ever), but for some reason it wasn't until this season that something just suddenly changed, like a switch being turned. And I think I now know what it was: Pearl Mackie. Because I came across an old post I'd made where I wrote that I think that Moffatt is a much better writer than RTD, but his era has lacked the heart that RTD's had, and I think that it was Bill (and her relationship with the Doctor) that finally gave the show the heart that it needed.

Knock Knock )

Oxygen )

Also, since I now officially consider myself a fan of the show, does anyone have any fic recs?

I had a look at AO3 and so. much. bad porn and AUs. I'm just not used to navigating active megafandoms.

Twelve-era only, please, because I still don't like the Doctor in his other incarnations (and yes, I did try to watch an Eleven-era episode in case I'd retroactively started liking all Doctors, but nope). And preferably gen, because I tried to read a smutty fic and realised that apparently I subscribe to the Doctor-is-asexual school of thought. Doctor/River is OK, though, because I liked their interaction in "The Husbands of River Song", although I still don't really understand why they're married or even when they fell in love (I think I've mentioned that I wasn't really paying attention to things during Eleven's era).

([personal profile] elisi, do you want to explain to me why I should be shipping River/Doctor?)

(Sidenote: why is Twelve/Clara called whoffauldi? I mean, I get the "who-" and the "-ldi", but where does the rest come from?)
