11:20 am - Waiting, waiting....
Dear Lord, I hate Daylight Savings. First it managed to completely and utterly bewilder me the other night (But why is 2am gone?), but now, when I have woken up in order to "obtain" the last Torchwood ep, it means that my old normal time is no longer suitable.

Bastard clocks. And I can no longer get back to sleep. Thus, I shall sit up and make exceedingly random posts until I can find a downloadable copy.

Henceforth:

- If one has a poster above the head of their bed, please ensure that it is well attached to the wall. Waking up to a poster on your face is creepy as all fuck.

- Tinhats. In the Doctor Who fandom. Why, I ask you, why? *is currently refraining on commenting on the icon of "Bitch, please"-ness

- For some suitably wanky entertainment, the HP fandom never fails to provide. Thus, we have this and this to check out.

- Rec up. Two to go. If the effing download takes too long, I might do one during the wait, even.

- torchwoodcoffee has over 120 members. Egads.

The RPF for Billie and David was raising all my red flags, but there's nothing in the rules against it, so I'm just bleeping over. But no, there has to be someone who can't tell the difference between friendship and sex. (And probably has such a hate on for Sophia that they'd do anything to break them up, not that the whole Reinette bashing hasn't left a bad taste in my mouth.)

I can live with the fic - they seem to at least accept it's fiction, and I don't read it. It's the people claiming "they get on so well, they must be a couple" that annoys me. That and the Sophia bashing.

Though I do feel rather sorry for Billie's boyfriend. He seems to get forgotten because he doesn't do the social stuff.

As someone who once woke up with Harrison Ford lying on top of him, I wholeheartedly agree...

Why oh why couldn't it have been the Jessica Alba poster right next to the Indiana Jones poster?

Mine was my Emily the Strange poster. The other one at my bed head was a Serenity movie one.

I once had my U2 poster land on my face. Bono-as-the-Fly is not a good thing to wake up to.

Like you, I find them too pathetic to be angry about. Aside from the general annoyance I get from stupidity, that is. I just find it a bit depressing that it's showing up in this fandom.

Yay! Tinhats! And it would have to be in bloody [Unknown LJ tag]. It would have to be a couple of hours before that horrendous chemistry exam. Yep, I sat there and lamented it for half an hour. That and the RP fic that's popping up. Which is weird, because sometimes I quite love RPF. The latest just don't feel like the author knows it's fiction. And it's not particularly good writing either. There've even been a few complaints so I'm contemplating banning RPF and just directing it over to the RPF comm someone just made. But then we wouldn't get the scattering of good ones.

As for the tinhats. I can't delete it without banning speculation on David Tennant's personal life. And then we wouldn't get important conversations about his pants and whether he likes tea or coffee.

I keep myself happy with just deleting all the bad spelling. You'd be surprised at how much I've quietly removed.

They are in the Billie comm, too. I don't know enough about that comm to comment on whether that is a regular occurance or not.

The latest just don't feel like the author knows it's fiction.

Yes, that's exactly it. It's the carry over of the Doctor/Rose shipping into RL. Like the bloody Dan/Emma shippers in HP. Complete with Sophia-bashing instead of Reinette bashing. That's your issue rather than mine, though. Unless the Ianto comm spits up Gareth David-Lloyd RPF

I can understand why the speculation must be kept - it's logical. If you want the fact stuff, you have to put up with the occasional bugfuck insane speculation.

Go you and your l33t mod skillz!

RPF just generally terrifies me a little. I keep wanting to take tennant_love off my flist because of the crazy, but something useful pops up once in a while so I feel I cannot.

Supposedly I shall finish.. obtaining the Torchwood ep in seven minutes. *sits and waits*

I generally just skim past it, but someone mentioned something about the last chapter. And I don't think fandom has disturbed me this much in a long, long time.

Mine is only one third done. Stupid thing, speed up!

Doctor Who fandom is like a real fandom now it's got its own tinhats.

*goes to hide all the foil in the world*
