|04:23 pm - Fandom Brings teh Lulz|
Firstly, I have two new recs for crack_van. Admittedly one is for todays Crossover thing, but still...
(The other was a Martha fic. Try and get some positive feeling going in the fandom and all...)
I also updated the profile of torchwoodcoffee (Feel free to make alterations, dune_drd). I have no artistic skills, so I'm sticking with the current layout for now. Hmm. Any suggestions for some comms to request affiliation with?
But my main source of amusement: Nos made a rather amusing post about why Ten > Nine. All fun and happy, yes?
Guess who decided to crash the party? Yes, it's rose_tyler_ herself, who is Not Amused that people dare say less than nice things about her darling woobie Eccleston.
Yeah, I poked the troll. But how could I not, after classic remarks like these:
"Nine was REAL.
Nine made the show REAL.
And my personal favourite: "Don't you DARE spout shit about My Doctor. Chris is an ACTOR. He BELIEVED he was a Timelord with all his being, and he did it incredibly."
Also, apparently if you prefer Tennant to Eccleston, you are not worthy of the fandom.
(She also refers to Rose in the first person, which weirds me out)
Current Mood: amused
Hmmm - astonishingly similar to the X-Men fandom troll, eh? Did she take Chris(t) into her heart and soul, too? *g*
She obviously took his role in The Second Coming very seriously.
There have been some amusing trolls as of late, have there not?
There definitely have been! Although it's most probable that they really are socky trolls, the idea that they might actually be real people is far too freaky and fucked up to contemplate, and in that case, therapy wouldn't even make a dent. Nothing short of a lobotomy would have a chance. Heh. (I mean, we already know of one probable nutcase who I won't mention by name, but damn, that forum was hilarious! Tears I tell you! :-D )
Oh yep, some seriously batty mice. Some disturbingly so. *has a mental blank on which forum you mean*
At CD. *cough* Um, it's pretty severe
Oh, that one. I think I about died laughing. Oh, crazy peoples, how you amuse me...
:-D I nearly coughed up a lung myself.
Oh dear, so it's wrong to have an own opinion? I think I may get some problems very soon then. I still can't say which Doctor I liked better, they're both great in their own way.
Saw the profile, very nice, yes :) We need a header and have to decide which colour scheme we want to have. I'd say something black, don't you think? Will try to do something remotely resembling art today, alas I feel a bit crappy and might just sit here and do nothing. Will get back to you
Apparently so. We should all bow down and worship at the alter of Eccleston, because only he is worthy. *rolls eyes*
I felt like doing something with it (and added a link to my OG sig). A header would be good, but, like I said, no artistic skills here. And black is suitable for depths of anguish and despair, I believe.
Feel free to mess around as much as you want.
Do you think she thinks she can have him when she talks as if she was Rose? These people scare me...
As for the comm: We need more advertizing, but other than torch_wood
I have no idea where. __kali__
has already a link to us in the sidebar :)
I am completely, one hundred percent certain she's a Doctor/Rose OTPer. And an overidentifying fanbrat. (Take a look at her LJ, her latest entry has her going batshit mental at people even thinking
about writing Seven/Ace fic)
Hmmm... What are some other Torchwood related comms? (We could try doctorwho
, if we wanted?)
There's a pile of them (that I knew of) linked in the sidebar of torchwood
and if you want I'll link to you on my site.
A link would be lovely! I'll have a check through the sidebar, and run around asking people for affiliation. Wanna affiliate?
She's not a hugely vocal individual, only 70-odd comments in a whole year. I suspect a sockpuppet, which is why I'd love to see an IP trace on her.
And yeah, way to stereotype fans, sweetie. (Particularly since she acts a hell of a lot more like a n00b fangirl than Nos, anyway)
Although I do admit that I prefer CE a lot more as the Doctor, as pretty and lickalicious as DT is.
Fandom is full of Crazy Shit.
Of all the Doctor's I have seen, CE is my least favourite. Trufax
General society itself is, so it makes sense that that would translate (and somehow grow into a huge drooling screaming monster) into fandom. Apparently, there was someone we are now calling, 'Crazy Jam Lady' at work the other day. Who apparently had 100s of little jam packets and was more than a little strange. (She's got it working well for her, though, she stole a chocolate bar and nobody approached her because they were too scared to).
Yeah, not everyone liked him, that's for sure. Which is fair enough, at times I thought, 'Oh, over the top, stop it!' But in general I really liked him. As far as favourites, I'm torn between Five and Six. I just can't choose!
Sure! You're a fic comm, right?
