DH has been sorting through the 800+ photos we took during our trip. Some of those special interest photos -- focusing on the Enigma or inside jokes -- won't make the main photostream. Also not on the general list are the costume shots I took at the Doctor Who Experience. So I set up a few photosets up on Flickr for the costume geeks among us, with one caveat: These are the raw images. This means I haven't done anything to them, really, other than upload them from my cell phone. I'm going to try and clean things up a bit, but for now the quality on some of the full-size shots is better than others.

You can find the costume pics on my photostream here. There are sets for Amy, Rose, and River; sets for the Doctor will follow on the weekend, with detailed shots for Nine and Ten.

I have to admit, I'd be torn between Smith/Jones '08 and Tyler/Smith '08. Maybe it should be Tyler/Smith(v2) '08?

If so, where are the zeppelins?

I've been watching my Avengers DVDs over the past few weeks. Today is "Escape in Time," where the dynamic duo are chasing down masterminds who claim they can help evil-doers escape into the past. One key item in the episode is the ridiculous, confusing maze of contacts through a place called Mackidockie Court. It struck me today that the set for Mackidockie Court, aside from the very "set-ishness", looks remarkably like the set for Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter movies.

It also occurs to me that, like Rose in second season Doctor Who, there are bits in the final Emma Peel episodes that point to her departure. For example... )

Needless to say, both of these make me incredibly glad that there is fan fiction.

Two reccs:

The first is more of an author recc than anything. I've recently re-discovered J. M. Galloway's Avengers fics. Very-well written, she has a gift for capturing the overall feel of the series, as well as the witty verbal foreplay between Steed and Mrs. Peel. Both her general-rated and adult-rated stories are worth a read. You can find her stuff here. Her story "To Break Your Heart," is actually set post-"Forget-Me-Not." Some what tense between the characters, but well-done overall. To see the dynamic duo in action, one should check out "Jack in the Green."

The second is a story I stumbled upon by accident, and hasn't been updated by the author in a while. It's a post-"Doomsday" reunion fic with a twist -- one that would normally make me run, screaming from a fic. In this case, I made an exception, and I have to say I'm extremely disappointed that the story hasn't been finished yet. Especially since the author stopped at such an intriguing point! The story? "Mercy," written by "SCAngel." You can find through chapter 8 over at A Teaspoon and an Open Mind. There was more of the story posted on the infamous more-than-famous "Tea Room" community. I'll dig up that link when I get home. =)
