Fear is hot. It's amazing how much of the Seven/Ace era can look sensual and wrong when you set it to a Gnarls Barkley soundtrack. This video manages to make everyone from that era, including just about all the villains, look like sexy bitches, yeah, baby.
with numerous goodies (including Lisa Bowerman YAY) but especially for me -
# Little Girl Lost - A retrospective look at the development of Sophie Aldred's character, Ace, from her first story, Dragonfire through to her last, Survival. With Sophie Aldred, creator Ian Briggs and script editor Andrew Cartmel.
*jumps around like a mad thing*
(The only thing I'm a tad worried about is the 'fan commentary' - who actually won this DW Mag competition? *fears*)
Survival is probably my absolute favourite Ace story. I am a happy, happy fangirl. Oh yes.
Scary Batshit Acefen It has been pointed out that 2007 marks Twenty Years Of Ace. This and I have just had to justify my Batshit claim of Ace as Soulmate Other Half despite the way it was god I hope it was non-sexual.
Wheeee! People pick on Rosefen for being scary sometimes, but most of them are lovely. Unlike Acefen, almost all of whom are terrifying in some way. Here we may indulge our scariness and contain all those offensive posts about how people who are not Ace are rubbish and how Seven is the best Doctor and how Their Love is the greatest of all loves ever ever ever.
The thought that sparked the comm was about how the Doctor has turned into a flirty ho since Ace left, which is proof of how much he loved only her. He tries to replace his Most Beloved, but no one is good enough. He has settled on cheap, shallow imitations of the love that bonded him to Ace, and will love again but never as deeply. Don't see Rose getting traumatised to make her a hardcore universe-defender, do you? Nuh-uh! He knows she's not good enough, and the same is true of Martha. I know we haven't met her, but she won't be as perfect as Ace. No one could be.
The only hope is to get Sophie back on Who. Tennant could possibly manage to be almost as good as McCoy if that happened, since he'd have Ace to complete him.
The very worst thing about Acefen is that no one knows whether they really mean the scary things they say.
