Diabetes  
Well, in November, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes - which means I’m on pills. To say that it has been rough is an understatement. It’s a whole new diet change as well as working on getting gym membership to work out a bit more.

The reason that I am talking about this is because there should be more awareness of it. It’s one common factor of death (my father had it before he died) and it affects many other organs in the body.

I was wanting to find a couple of people who might be willing to help me get through this change - just to talk. About anything too - doesn’t have to be about it (though one can start off asking about how I’m doing with it).

What's Wrong with Moffat?  
I guess what I never understood is why so many do not like his writing style. I thought that his time as showrunner was great. I liked how all the season flow together, a continuation of each other. He brought a lot of depth to the show that I never saw during RTD's era.

Yeah, sorry to say that I never did like RTD's style of writing. Yes, yes, I'm a horrible person for saying that; but to me, it's the truth. Now, there were a few good stories and Donna was the best companion during that era. I think that I just never really liked how he did each series. With Rose, she was great in the beginning yet became pretty pointless towards the end of her run and I never saw the point of bringing her back - that was, to me, a bad plot point...and the constant references to her in Series 3 was overkill - the Doctor needed to learn to let go and move on. He may have loved her; yet, to me, if you love someone and they are gone, then let go. It's healthier and, to me, it shows love in keeping them in your heart and knowing that they are well and safe and one can hope that he or she moves on as well. It's remembering that love that will keep that person alive. However, you don't have to treat others like their second best because of it. Yeah, you're sad; but you don't need to take it out on others. I always thought that RTD had really clingy issues with this pair that borderlined obsession to me.

With Martha, I liked her but her run was constantly her being compared to Rose and pretty much told that she was worthless. No one should be treated like that no matter what the other person had gone through - Martha did not deserve that, and the Doctor was wrong for treating her like that. That made me start not to like him.

I love Donna, the first companion of RTD's that I liked (I also love Jack Harkness). But he DID NOT have to do what he did to her. There was no need to take her memory - he could have came up with something to save her or just not have it happen and found another way to stop the Daleks. This is another sore point.

The specials were okay - can't really complain.

Now to Moffat. He seemed to bring everything more alive to me. Yes, the Doctor could still be clingy to his companions; yet, he was willing to let them live their lives and let them join him whenever they wanted. Oh, RTD could have done that too during his tenure...but he didn't. Though, I have to give him credit for giving many of them a good life after the Doctor.

Oh, it's just all complicated in my head. But in the end, CHANGE IS A PART OF IT ALL. No one is going to like things a showrunner does; but guess what? It is what makes Doctor Who unique. No one can stop change - either go with it or stop watching. No one is going to be happy.

Where did he come from?  
It is really annoying when you are writing one character and all of a sudden another appears out of nowhere, upset that you left him out.

Well, that's what happened to me. Here I am writing a one-shot with Duncan when Methos comes out of nowhere and takes over. And he brings poor Matthew McCormick with him.

Damn the old man. He's getting annoying ;)

Questions Meme  
-Comment with "Winter is Coming"
-I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
-Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
-Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions. (If you want. Totally optional.)


[personal profile] ravenela gave me these:

1) Who is your most recent original character?

My most recent one is Talia Hayes, an Immortal OFC based in the Highlander universe and will be in several other fandoms.

2) How do you feel about the new Star Wars movies they're developing?

I'm actually pretty excited. Especially if they bring back the characters from the Original Trilogy. It looks like they are. And with J.J. Abrams directing Episode VII, it should be good.

3) What's the best movie you've seen recently?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I LOVE this film and I can't wait for the second part!

4) What's the best book you've read recently?

Hm...I have to say The Third Secret by Steve Berry. I love conspiracy theories and the bending of facts.

5) Which is better, chocolate or strawberry?

Chocolate, definitely. Was raised by a chocoholic.

Some help  
Alright, I'm trying to write a one-shot with my OFC Immortal meeting Duncan for the first time. The thing is, I can't really describe him. Would you consider him dark-skinned or tanned? I know he has brown hair, but it's his skin complexion that is confusing me.

And what color are his eyes?

I posted a new fic!  
I did it - I officially created an OFC Highlander Immortal. Oh boy...

Her name is Talia Hayes and, if you like, you can keep up with her as I post stories.

You can find the first story:

On LJ: Here

On DW: Here

I will also be posting it to AO3. So, if you're on there, check it out.

And let me know what you think!

Ready for some football?  
Waiting for the game to start. This will be the first Super Bowl that I have been able to watch in about four years. I'm more going to be watching the commercials; but I will be rooting for San Francisco while I'm at it.

Anyone else watching?

Okay...  
Well, some news. First off, I am so addicted to Indiana Jones right now that it's pretty funny. I'm streaming the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles through Netflix while watching all four movies that I own. It's obsessive, I'm telling you.

So now the Immortal OFC that I am working on is now going to a friend of Jones during her pre-Immortal days. And will not be a love interest. Actually, I'm almost done with a one-shot based on an episode of the chronicles. I should get it up either today and tomorrow. I'll let you all know.

I blame it on Indiana Jones...  
I was looking through Netflix and came upon episodes of The Adventures of Young Indiana. I love them! And now they gave me the idea of what time frame my Immortal OFC comes from.

And she has a name  
After doing a lot of research, I finally managed to get something...something. I know, it doesn't make sense, but trying to figure out a good name for my OFC to use in my Highlander fic got a bit tough. Had to decide when she would become Immortal, what age, a basic idea of what she would look like, and things like that. And who her teacher was going to be.

Well, her name is going to be Melanie Yates. She is born in the 20th century (no idea when yet); and though her name basically means "dark", she's a blonde (go figure). Yet you can say that her name will describe her personality - which is a bit dark.

Off to plan some more!

The pain that comes with an overactive imagination...  
So, I said last night that watching Highlander was starting to give me ideas. Which it did. I am currently developing an original character for me to use in the 'verse and hopefully will be starting a story at the end of the week.

Gosh, my brain is going to explode.

Highlander  
I decided to watch Highlander again and find myself again totally enthralled...to the point that I am thinking of a story with my own OC in it. I hate it when I think up new things to my already story-filled brain. But I am actively thinking about doing this. Just don't know how to do it yet.

Too Many Ideas  
I have way too many story ideas. Right now I am juggling between ideas for Doctor Who and The Lord of the Rings. I also have to continue an Avengers story as well as finish writing one for a ficathon. So I've been busy on that part.

College starts back up today; so that is going to cut into things. But we'll see what will happen.

The Start of a New Year  
Wow, it's been a while since I have posted on DW (and post and cross-posted to LJ). Well, I am going to try to change that. It will probably be fandom stuff; but I will post some RL stuff (and that will be under lock).

I hope that everyone has been well and I hope to talk to you all soon!

Hello all!  

How's everyone doing?  Hope everyone is doing well.

As for me, I just found out that when I talk to myself at work, my co-workers think I'm strange.  Not in a bad strange.  But in a weird strange.  I can live with weird.  Weird is good.  And they think that I am hilarious when I do it.  Okay, I talk to myself...a lot.  A habit from growing up an only child.  Only person I really ever had to talk to was myself.  Though this now comes in handy when I'm writing, so I consider it a gift.

And I am starting to love wine.  I started drinking a little bit before bed to help me relax and sleep.  And trust me, it's better than sleeping pills.  And I go for the cheap wine.  But it is good! 

Storywise, I need a volunteer to help me with a fic that I am doing for someone.  It's a fic fest in the Avengers fandom and I need someone to throw ideas at.  I do have a prompt (thank goodness), but I could use some support.  If interested, just comment!

And so far I have a 3.5 GPA so far at UoP.  This makes me very happy!  The classes are pretty tough at the moment, but all in the name of getting a degree.

Talk to ya all soon!

What's up, everyone?  
Another update post.  Hope everyone is doing well!

Anyway, college is going well.  Almost had a mental breakdown over it but my mom whipped me back into shape.  She's pretty use to my depression and tries to help the best she can - which I love her for.  But now I'm pretty okay - still have my moments.

Elsewhere, I hate my job.  Oh, it's okay at times.  But other times...let's say I'm not the happiest person in the world.  I get yelled at - a lot.  And only by my general manager.  My other managers are pretty easy going with me and seem to understand me better.  But I am currently looking elsewhere - hopefully outside the restaurant business. 

Also, MY MOM BOUGHT ME AN INDOOR GRILL.  An early birthday present for me.  It's a George Foreman grill and I love it.  Think of the possibilities.

Also, thanks to ithildin, I now know that the Avengers is coming back over the weekend.  It's a one week thing; but I'm so happy.  The best part is is that I live 15-20 minutes from a theater that is going to show it!  Another early birthday present!

And with the movie coming to DVD eight days after my birthday, this is going to be a good month.

OH!  By the way, I am planning on participating in Nanowrimo this year.  So if anyone wants to be my writing buddy (a few of you are), just look up "jedimasterstar" on the site!  Hope to see a lot of you there!
