First off, I miss you people. I miss LJ and I miss writing and roleplaying and I miss the internet. The reason I'm not on AIM or the roleplaying websites I used to frequent anymore is because I've moved into a house with a ton of roommates who I like and enjoy spending time with. The thought of secluding myself in my bedroom and sitting at the computer is really unappealing to me, yet I miss talking with people and mostly: roleplaying. I'm going through a lull right now in my gaming where I don't have enough money to afford to keep up with my computer/console games, my internet connection is not good enough to play WoW, and my roommates and other friends, while fun and engaging, are not gamers. Therefore I'm stuck doing what everyone else wants to do and not enough of what I do, though I feel drawn to spent time with them.
So, just know that I am thinking about you, friends, and perhaps someday I will make it online to spend some time with you.
Doctor Who continues to wow me with its awesomeness. The first two episodes of Season 6 blew me away and I'm so excited to watch a whole season in real-time with everyone else. I won't go into theories I have, mostly because I'm so amazed by Moffat that I can't even begin to form any credible theory, but it's definitely taking me for a wild ride. I'm surprised to find that I still miss David Tennant, though. It took me an entire season to warm to him after Eccleston, but once I got on his train, I was on it. I definitely am on Matt Smith's train, and I do enjoy him thoroughly, but I keep watching the show with a little bit of *wibble* for the past. It might be because Moffat took the show in such a different direction that it almost doesn't feel like it's the same show.
Not that I'm complaining! I feel like Doctor Who has been elevated into whole new levels of concept and (like I said earlier) it blows me out of the water. I'm absolutely enjoying myself.
Maybe it's the suit. I think I miss the suit most. And the coat.
I am also gearing up for Torchwood. I'm SO EXCITED for new Torchwood, and not only because the current status quo in the fandom seriously needs to be shaken up. I swear, I've almost given up reading new Janto fics because they're ALL the same. The only ones I even bother to click on are by certain authors and it's gotten to the point where I can identify the Character!Hate authors by name so I can avoid them like the plague. Unfortunately they seem to be the most prolific as of late, which I really don't understand. Just how many ways are there to write the same story about how much you love so and so while simultaneously bashing another character?
In other news, I'm kinda excited for this summer's movies as well... I'm pretty meh about Thor, honestly, but Fast Five looks awesome! (The Rock and Vin Diesel in the same movie?!?!? Hellz yes!) I am currently working with a guy who was a swordfighter in the new Pirates movie, which I'm excited to see, and then I can finally watch Harry Potter 7: Part 1 in preparation for part 2!! Last year, I refused to see it and repeat the mistake I made with Pirates 2 and 3. That year in-between was dumb.
Yeah, lots of fandom fun to look forward to. :)
Right now, other than Doctor Who, I'm still riding my Dragon Age II train, though I have no one to share that with. But I've kinda sorta fallen in love with my own character, which I've never done before... but I'm really enjoying it. I think it's because I can't custom tailor what he's going to say... I click the type of answer then he says the specific words, so there's a level of disassociation involved. Plus, this is my second time through and I've already played the "Me" character. He was supposed to be my "opposite" so I can learn what happens when I make the other choices, but he's really grown on me and now I'm only doing certain things differently. I'll do the bastard character next. (Last time I did that, I ended up killing most of the surface world. It was actually really fun to do everything "wrong".)
Well that's enough of a wall of dialogue from me. Have a good evening, if there's anyone even reading this anymore. Lol
