Nonstop raving about David Tennant (literally nonstop my queue runs continuously) and Doctor Who. This is a David Tennant fan blog and about 80% of what I post is probably Tennant-related. Right now that means I'm completely obsessed with Richard II and Gracepoint.
Features: "Weird Wednesday" (oddities, random bits of knowledge, things you never thought you'd see, etc.) and "Martha Monday". Feel free to block those tags if you don't like weird stuff or Martha Jones.
I am a huge nerd, so I post an eclectic mix of stuff. Other stuff you'll find here: Shakespeare, archaeology and really old stuff, dogs, animals, fashion, vampires, monsters, gory gothic stuff
I tend to reblog and do original posts of whatever TV show or movie I'm watching at the moment, and right now that's Penny Dreadful and Orphan Black, so feel free to block those tags if you're not interested. Other shows I love and post a lot about in season are Vikings and Lost Girl.
I also post my own original writing, photo edits and gifs, and creative stuff.
I do post NSFW stuff and bisexual and lesbian posts, and my own smutty fiction from time to time, so be warned. I try to use the tag "nsfw" so please block it if you don't want to see nudity, sex, and similar stuff. However, what your workplace and mine consider "nsfw" might vary, so I do also use the tags, "sex", "sex scene", "naked" and so forth for things that I might not consider nsfw but that you might.
I answer most asks privately, so feel free to send me a message. Anonymous messages will all be published.
What: Modern AU, or re-telling is more accurate, of Richard II, set in the high-stakes tech industry. Based on the 2013 RSC Richard II, starring David Tennant. Will be supplemented with actual historical elements as appropriate and necessary.
Rating: Everyone. No sex or violence or anything strange in this particular installment. It’s just a prologue. There are many full chapters ahead and they won’t all be this clean, but I will be sure to let you know when they’re not.
Acknowledgements: Thanks to shredsandpatches and twistedgardener for tolerating my rant about this and encouraging me to actually write it and to shredsandpatches for also coming up with the idea of the blog.
silicon-seeker asked SiliconDick:
He’s at the Starbucks right now I’m sitting right on the other side of the room—not gonna say which one cuz real fans will know—with the Favorites and he’s wearing this tight silk shirt—maybe it’s a woman’s blouse even— with little blue flowers, open at the neck and omg he’s turning his head now it looks really long and thin and you can just see the top of his chest hair… he’s got these skinny blue jeans on—they look really expensive— and these grey suede chukka boots and he’s just sitting there stirring his coffee and looking casually bored while the Favorites argue about something. Aaaah! He just tossed his hair back over his shoulder—it looks so soft and wavy!—and damn, he’s got eyeliner that just totally goes with the scruff he’s rocking today. Help! I think I’m going to faint.
Can you see if he’s still wearing the blue nail polish he was wearing yesterday? If Edward shows up, let us know, OK?
