|08:58 pm - Talk, talk, talk.|
So, I was chatting with Rob Shearman on AIM today. *pauses for mild flailage*
It was...very interesting. And great fun. We talked about music and the iPod Plan Of World DominanceTM. And I tried to talk him into watching Firefly.
He wins lots of points for calling Anne Rice bonkers. And these comments, which cracked me up:
Shearrob: I might have to buy another. Just so Ipod #1 has a friend.
drakyndra: Have a little iPod family
Shearrob: Yeah. I'd like that. Then they can breed.
drakyndra: That's how iPod nanos are created, you know
Shearrob: Yes... but one thing puzzles me. Where does the little Nano come out of?
Shearrob: Exactly! *No-one knows.*
And there was Doctor Who talk liek whoa. We plotted to bring back Adam, and discussed the differences between this season and the last, and between the the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, and between Eccleston and Tennant and Eccleston themselves (He's met them. He's worked with them. That just makes me flail that little bit more), and opinions on various episodes and why we did or didn't like them, and why having the regeneration after just one season was a very clever move.
Also, I got some little hints that have hyped me up so much for later in the season. Not really spoilers, because they don't actually tell you anything, but I'll cut them, anyway.
The key bits of the conversation:
Shearrob: I shan't spoil anything for you. But the Doctor and Rose won't be alone again forever. :)
drakyndra: *has no words*
drakyndra: Okay, you just made me way excited for the rest of the series.
Shearrob: Well, I really don't want to give anything away. Because you might thwap me with something hard, from all the way in Melbourne.
drakyndra: With my almighty thwapping skills? Nah, hints are good, they get my hyped up. Especially because we have passed out of the part of the series I knew spoilers on
Shearrob: Well, ok. Let's just say that characters you think you've seen the last of may well return. In unexpected ways.
That's the key stuff, really. Now, whether the Doctor and Rose not being alone forever, and the returning character thing are connected or not is unknown, but in any case, I am so starting to look forward to things.
But yeah, chatting with Rob Shearman. *flails some more*
Ooh, so he *does* have foreknowledge, heh. Cam wasn't sure. And apparently he too thinks that Ten and Rose are geting a bit nauseating and unlikeable.
That's a lovely hint though; it could be applied in so many ways. Jack, or Mickey, or Daleks, or Cybermen, or Pete Tyler, or Romana or Sarah Jane... (would so love to see Romana or Sarah Jane back again. *wishes*)
He has some, yeah. He didn't tell me any more, and I didn't ask for any more. And he seems to really like the Tenth Doctor, as far as I can tell, it's just the with Rose stuff that is getting him on edge. Or maybe it's just he really likes David in RL.
I know, it's an intriguing hint. Oh, and the Cybermen are confirmed - which is no surprise, seeing as that three minute trailer had Cybermen scenes that weren't in the last eps. But as for who else...
. Wrote one of my favourite episodes of Doctor Who last year.
Now THAT's what I'd call a reliable source. *is jealous like whoa*
What did he say about the Tennant/Eccleston comparison? I'd just like to know how they differ
I have contacts! It's weird, but unbelievably cool.
In real life, or their characters?
It's a great hint - grabs your interest and makes you think, but gives very little away.
And podpreg makes me laugh. (Do you think people write podslash?)
He is awesome, isn't he?
We actually talked about badfic and Rose Pearse. No lie.
He truly is.
And that would be awesome - I'd have loved to have heard that conversation. Especially what he thought of Madam Pearse.
*OMG JEALOUS WOAH*
That is so cool. I am so looking forward to the rest of the series now...
I know! I'm actually looking foward to it more and more, now. Possibly because we have passed the point which I am spoiled for, and now only know tiny details about.
You lucky thing!
*flails with you*
I really hope Sarah returns. I remember hearing somewhere we hadn't seen the last of her, but then again, it could be someone we know is going to return at some point, like Jack, the daleks, or the cybermen. Or, it could be something else entirely, like maybe Blon the Slitheen regrown, or Adam (I don't think that's likely though). Maybe even something/someone from old skool Who?
We can safely say it isn't Adam, since Rob said he should start campaign to bring him back. I don't think he liked what happened to him.
But it could be almost anything, so it is most intriguing.
*jealous like whoa.*
And intrigued beyond measure. That man sure is good at creating suspense.
Yep, that is a damned good hint. Gives you lots to look forward to, without actually telling you anything.
*loves this fandom liek woah*
*is jealous liek woah*
Wow, this whole thing with you and misscam
and Rob Shearman is just so unbelievably cool what with hints and gossip and fic-reading. Well done, making Melbourne-Who fans proud being all cool and calm and cool.
This fandom is great, isn't it?
And that's the advantage of the internet - one can come off as all cool and calm, when really they are flailing wildly.
Awesome awesome awesome. XD
By the way, I wrote to RTD once...I managed to get hold of his email address. But he never wrote back. ;)
OMG i know no one famous in our fandom! Well, I do, but not famous-from-telly. u r teh bnfz yay!
Clay Hickman was in the OG chat last night. I asked for more nudity in DWM and other people wanted tehre to be free pencil-cases.
Some day I hope to meet Sparacus.
Me, a BNF? *boggles rather*
Also, you was so right in that chat. Nudity > Pencil-Cases
If you meet Sparacus, you must get me his autograph.

*flail* I'm so jealous. Tell him to message me. :D
I think it'd take a little more than that...
sorry, still getting over the "you might thwap me with something hard" bit.
I just zapped myself though.
*gives an extra bonus zap, just to get the point across*
*is really quite impressed*
Just as I'm forced to leave the fandom, all the interesting stuff happens! *cries*
Oh, I am so impressive. *grins*
And it's a pity, because fandom is so fun right now.
I think I love him, if just for the iPod nano comment.
Also, because you plotted to bring back Adam. Hee. :D
Hmm. Unexpected ways? That possibly... works, according to the little that I've heard. But yes.
Bringing back Adam is our wonderful evil plan.
But I am fascinated by the whole returning concept, so it makes me excited and all, which is always good.
