His young eyes survey this unchosen birthplanet as he prepares to run away, weary of the rules and regulations, disillusioned with neglected power of his people. The stars themselves now summon, beckoning him away from this prison he'd once called home. And when Susan asks where they and his quite old new ship shall go, he replies anywhere, meaning everywhere, giddy with the possibilities.

Perhaps, he hopes,

They were arguing about their son again- not something very dignified for Time Lords of their status. As one of the ruling families of Gallifrey,

Title: Housebond
author: fannishliss
pairing: The Doctor, his first wife, and his other first wife
rating: teen
length: 2256 words

summary: In the Gallifreyan backtime, the Doctor's first wife meets his other first wife.

You might remember the funny cartoon that was mentioned here a few weeks ago about the Twelve Types of Doctor Who Fan.
I liked it and admitted I was pretty much ALL those types, but I thought the Fanfic type was a little harsh with the mockery of self-inserts and Doctor/Tardis/Me threeways.

Then I decided that for my final Who@50 Ficathon story, featuring the First Doctor, I would write that Doctor/Tardis/Me Threeway.
I ended up writing a story in the first person, from the point of view of the Doctor's Wife in the Gallifreyan Backtime.  It's as canon compliant as I could make it.  And it does kind of feature a threeway with the Tardis. :P  Plus bonus Intuitive Revolution, Prydon College, Pythian Sisters, extreme classism of Old Gallifrey, special bonus Susan! -- and More!

It might strike people as a little shocking in some ways (though the rating is Teen, not Adult), so I also wrote a meta at the end about why I portrayed Gallifreyan Sexuality the way I did.   I'd really love any reader reactions.  I'm sure this is not everyone's cup of tea (I've noticed that the earlier the Doctor, the fewer readers), but if you're at all interested, please read.

Thank you!
So, I'm re-watching all Who again and I've noticed a certain shift in attitudes towards the subject of ecology and environmental activists between season 10's The Green Death and season 11's Invasion of the Dinosaurs and I wonder why.
Was there some kind of eco-terrorism incident, or a bad press expression that would push to such a sudden change in representation from "hip, cool, hot nuthutch hippies" to "evil, evil fanatic scientists gone bad I tell you!" ?
Or was it some sort of change in writing directors or a tightening of control on the writing team, because there were incidents of snappier writing before Green Death *cough* The Mutants *cough* Doctor's speech in the end of Planet of the Daleks *cough* But right after season 11 came the Tom Baker era and it was preety loosey and cheeky....
I did not live in these times, and I don't know too much about the background of Who writing, I'd love to learn more.

After watching "The Angels Take Manhattan" something that was said made me wonder. It's sort of a gigantic plothole but, for the most part, the type we typically walk by while we're whistling.

Anyway, the vid has spoilers for the latest episode

In order to distract myself from the impending sadness that is Bye-Bye Ponds, I'm trying to figure out the strange 'differences' between Pete's World and the 'Regular' universe. Specifically things like the United States of Mexico probably includes California and Czechloslovenia. More in my journal. Feel free to come and comment. I'm trying to work this craziness out. [Read]
Does anyone own or have access to Doctor Who: The Sixties by David J. Howe Mark Stammers and Stephen James Walker?

I need it for an article I'm writing.

As you'll recall, back in April 2007 in the episode "The Shakespeare Code", the Doctor discovered that the Bard was bisexual.

Well, now even more academics are punching the air.

Does any of this remind you of anything:


Since that is a long piece of text, this paragraph is the most relevant:

I mean, obviously there are some differences, but I wonder if that was the inspiration?
