That time of year is fast-approaching us once again - we are mere weeks away from the 52nd Anniversary of Doctor Who! And as in previous years, I thought it would be nice to commemorate it at who_at_50 via the medium of fanwork.

Please allow me to announce, therefore, the who_at_50 52nd Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon, celebrating more than half a century of Doctor Who-related goodness. All - that is all - forms of fannish endeavour are welcome - fanfic, fanart, fanvids, fanmixes, icons, podfic, and absolutely any other medium in which you want to express your creativity and celebrate your love for that which is Who, almost certainly including some I've never even heard of. Signups are open from today; posting of fanworks will commence from 1 November 2015 and continue throughout the month. Anything evoking the idea of the extraordinary longevity and diversity of Who would be especially welcome, but maybe the best way to do that is by creating the most typically Doctor Who-like Doctor Who fanwork you can?

If you're interested in taking part, please visit one of the signup posts linked to below to see some more specific instructions and, hopefully, to sign up!

Title: Within Me There Lay an Invincible Summer
Author: doctorxdonna
Rating: General Audience
Word Count: 4440
Characters/Pairing: 10th Doctor/Rose Tyler, Donna Noble/Lee McAvoy
Summary: Rose knows that Donna's perfect man is out there, and she's determined to find him.
Author's Note: This was written as a gift for lunaseemoony as part of a tumblr promo, the given prompt was 'the Doctor, Rose, and Donna on an adventure'. I decided this would be a perfect excuse to write a sequel to Just As It Should Be. You can read this story as a stand alone-just know that Tony is Rose and the Doctor's son, the Metacrisis never happened, and Rose and Donna both stayed with Ten at the end of JE.

Read it at AO3, the Teaspoon, and ff.net.

Just dropping in to place a link to my belated (yes, again) meta/review, which is now up on AO3 here.

One of these weeks I won't need a TARDIS to get this up in better time!

The third episode of the current series of Doctor Who starts at 20:25 today on BBC1.

From the BBC website:
    When an underwater base comes under attack, the Doctor and Clara must save the frightened crew and defeat an impossible threat. But what is behind these terrifying events? And can they really be haunted by ghosts?

Title: The stars are going out
Characters: Clara Oswald and Rose Tyler
Rating: G
Words: 740
Summary: Missing scene from The Name of the Doctor
Author's Note: Thank you very much to betawho for beta-ing

Clara walked  between the desks of her students. She'd had to confiscate Leela's spitball-shooting pen and Tegan's paper plane, but Harry had begun to concentrate on his own work rather than steal glances at Martha's, and Susan had stopped looking out the window. Everything seemed to be going smoothly in class, so why did she feel so unnerved?

( Almost in answer, the world shook. )

"Class" is the name a new 8x45 spin-off written by Patrick Ness centered around Coal Hill School in contemporary London. Press release here.

Patrick Ness: "I'm astounded and thrilled to be entering the Doctor Who universe, which is as vast as time and space itself.  There's so much room there for all kinds of amazing stories, and to work with Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin to find a place to tell one of my own has been an absolute joy. I can't wait for people to meet the heroes of Class, to meet the all-new villains and aliens, to remember that the horrors of the darkest corners of existence are just about on par with having to pass your A-Levels."
