when your partner hasn’t replied to a thread in a while and you were having a lot of feels about it, so now every once in a while you remember it like:



the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to an endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.

Behind the scenes of The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit

Excerpts from director James Strong’s “Director’s Diary” (DWM #372)

It’s our last night in the quarry, and we hang David off a cliff to represent him abseiling into the pit… We had him about 20 feet in the air, with wires and a safety harness attached to his chest, which made him really uncomfortable, but the effect is incredible.  I love this scene - such a beautiful, sad, brave moment, as the Doctor unclips himself and hints of his feelings for Rose, before falling into the abyss.  Now David hangs some 100 feet in the air, off the side of the quarry wall, and we just manage to get the shot before we fracture any of David’s ribs.

[Shooting with David & Billie on the TARDIS set] - We do the scene where they’re reunited, and you’d have to be a Cyberman to not be touched by their genuine affection for each other.  I didn’t know it then, but this is the last scene that Billie Piper shoots on Doctor Who.  What a truly special and proper way to end such an amazing journey.  Russell, Phil, and the entire production team gather for the final shots. … Tears and champagne all around!  It’s a wrap!

I have so many behind-the-scenes photos from this two-parter that I should probably do a “Part 2” photoset in the future.

All of my previous behind-the-scenes photoset posts can be found here.

A bazillion hugs are on their way. Watch out for jumbo planes carrying them to your roof. They all come with an origami cat and a cookie, and the pilots always tell a really bad pun when they land <3 Hope you feel better soon/

Omg I love you so much. You’re awesome. Thank you love.

Lesson "How to Seduce a Woman" from Captain Jack Harkness.

I’d like to amend my proposition for a Martha and Mickey spin-off, where regularly Jack appears and flirts.  With both of them.  Successfully.

So I hit 1k a little bit ago after about eight months and I figured I should do some sort of follow forever.  As it is, between relocating and starting a new job and a lot of other things I haven’t had time to properly sit down and make a list of this or that or whatnot, but I do want to take the time to point out a few wonderful blogs whom I’ve loved interacting with over my time on tumblr.

I would be here all day if I wrote paragraphs for each person, but believe me — everyone on this list is someone whom I adore to the end of the world.  Many of them have been here since I first started, and some have come on more recently, and some I might not even RP with but just love seeing on my dash, but all of them are important to me and each and everyone of them should find $20 in their pockets.

And to make sure I didn’t forget anyone, I did this alphabetically.  Mostly.  The first letter, anyway.  There’s so many I want to show love to and if I did this from memory, I’d forget someone.  D: (And I’m sure I’ll do that anyway because I suck.)

If people have more than one blog I tried to only list one.  Anyway, I appreciate ALL my followers and I love when you guys come and talk to me. A lot of these people I’ve written with from the very beginning or close to it, but I’m always happy to meet new people and find more partners. 

Aaaand… I think I’ll do a contest, too.  First I gotta go to work, though, so I’ll set that up tomorrow.  Thanks, everyone!  Here’s to what comes next.











And that's it! Hope it helped.


A good tip for those using the web browser for tumblr on their phones. however this doesn’t work for those using the app
