"Lovely banner!!

Thank you! Glad you like it. :)

Particularly enjoy the Nine/Rose love on the right hand side. ;-D

Thanks! I had to include them in there due to my love of Series 1.

And I really like that picture of them at the bridge - I haven't seen that used much, so I'm glad I had the chance to do so. The picture of Rose at the top (from Boomtown) I especially love too.

The Ten/Martha part of it with the little timeline of "Smith and Jones" images is making me feel all nostalgic. :)

Making a journal semi-friends-only in order to show off a friends-only banner is completely justified. :) Especially when the friends-only banner is AWESOME. I think the slice of Martha's face and of Rose's eyes are my favorite.

...Hopefully that will be the last time I ever use the phrase, "slice of Martha's face". No promises.

Also, non-friends-only banner? GUH SO PRETTY. Except for Martha and Ten's faces, which are both PRETTY and PRETTY FTW.

Thanks! And I'm not the first one to make a semi-friends only banner. *whistles*

I was experimenting with cropping for Martha and Rose's faces just to do something different.

LOL. ;-)

You're talking about the new header at the top of my LJ, right? I wasn't planning on making a new one, but inspiration struck yesterday. And the previous header was only up for less than a month. oO

I'm glad you like it, thanks! I really like that image of Martha. :)

Stumbled across your site and how could I not friend you? SPN AND Dr. Who? My two favorite shows.

Love the banner. Can I ask where you got the picture of Sam and Dean? I've been searching for that particular shot for ages and I can't find it.

[identity profile] dk323.livejournal.com 2009-06-22 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
Hi. :) Always nice to meet a fellow SPN & Doctor Who fan. :)

Love the banner.

Thanks! I got the picture of Sam and Dean from [livejournal.com profile] creativeelf. She has a collection of promos from SPN at her LJ (the first link on the left sidebar). Here's the direct link to the image:
http://pics.livejournal.com/creativeelf/pic/003sw6tp/g3194

I'm not sure where she got it from though. It looks like it's not easy to find, which is a shame. I love that image of them. :)

Hi! :D We seem to have a lot in common i.e. Doctor Who/Supernatural/Merlin.

I hope it would be okay to add you? :)

DDD: *cannot stop staring at your semi-friends only banner*

Thanks - I love that animation so much. :) That scene was a great way to end the episode.

i'm just going to friend you for the BEAUTY (and of course, your love for merlin AND doctor who <3)

Thanks for friending me. :) I love Merlin and Doctor Who - they're both fun shows, aren't they? :)

[identity profile] suchaclotpole.livejournal.com 2009-10-26 12:54 pm (UTC)(link)
(: it's a beautiful way to end an episode, and it reflects the lovely merlin & arthur friendship. oh, what am i saying!? more like the merlin/arthur lovin' ;D

(: merlin and doctor who are amazing shows <3 who was your favourite assistant in the new!who? (: persoanlly, i'd HAVE to say Donna, just because Catherine Tate is an amazing actress, and thank christ, a companion that DOESN'T fancy the doctor ;D

It definitely was. I like how it showed that - no matter the love triangle and whatnot - it'll always be Merlin and Arthur standing by each other at the end of the day. :) Oh yes, just calling it a friendship doesn't seem to fit - definitely much more than just friends. :)

who was your favourite assistant in the new!who? (: persoanlly, i'd HAVE to say Donna, just because Catherine Tate is an amazing actress, and thank christ, a companion that DOESN'T fancy the doctor ;D

I admit to liking Martha best - I'm definitely not happy with the unrequited love storyline they put on her, but her other qualities endeared her to me. And her complicated relationship with the Doctor got me to write Doctor Who fic. I do have a soft spot for Rose in season 1 - I loved her with Nine. The first I saw of Doctor Who was season 2 with Ten and Rose... and I loved the two of them together too. :)

I really liked Donna as well - and yes, I completely agree with you about how refreshing it was to have a companion who didn't fancy the Doctor.

I suppose, in the end, each of the companions were great in their own different ways, so it's hard to choose a favorite...

[identity profile] suchaclotpole.livejournal.com 2009-10-27 01:57 pm (UTC)(link)
oooooh, it's such a lovely little idea! but i cannot wait to see Arthur's reaction when he finds out Merlin is ACTUALLY a magician (whenever i say that, i always have this image of Merlin pulling a rabbit out of a hat or something!). i'm writing a little fic where Arthur takes it the worst way possible, but of course, Merlin can't actually END like that- they couldn't BUMP the main character off, and besides it totally goes against mythology ;D

ooooh, really Martha!? i haven't met anyone that likes Martha the best *nods thoughtfully* but of course, it's what the induvidual likes, rather than the masses! i can understand where you're coming from there, but i think it was the whole 'omgg, i love the doctor' thing that drove me mad! Ten/Rose was actually lovely! i never usually ship canon, so it was quite nice to feel part of something there!

GOSH, darn, i know what you mean! it's like saying 'who's your favourite doctor?' it's down to personal preference rather than how good they ACTUALLY were!

Yeah, the show definitely can't kill off Merlin. That would be horrible! :( I have read a few fics where Arthur doesn't take the magic reveal all that well. I can see it happening, I suppose, but I think that eventually, Arthur would come around...

Good luck with the fic you're writing! :)

ooooh, really Martha!? i haven't met anyone that likes Martha the best *nods thoughtfully*

Yeah, I know it's not a popular opinion...though most of the people on my FList are Martha fans - I really started using my LJ when I wrote Doctor Who fic, and what inspired me the most was the push-pull relationship between Ten and Martha in Series 3.

I think what I liked the most about Martha is that she left on her own terms at the end of S3... the Doctor didn't make the decision for her (like with Rose and Donna). It almost made up for that unfair unrequited love story that they saddled Martha with.

But to each their own - I'm looking forward to seeing the new Doctor... the Rose vs. Martha thing is frustrating and I'm just hoping to enjoy Doctor Who as it is after Ten regenerates...

We'll see... :)

GOSH, darn, i know what you mean! it's like saying 'who's your favourite doctor?' it's down to personal preference rather than how good they ACTUALLY were!

Yeah, I agree with you on that. :) No one's perfect... and everyone always has their personal opinions that inevitably conflict.

[identity profile] suchaclotpole.livejournal.com 2009-10-28 05:55 pm (UTC)(link)
;D ah well of course! but it'd be nice if... if the ratings went caput, and the beeb just went 'WE CAN DO WHATEVER WE WANT TO END THE SHOW!' and just killed everybody off! sometimes, that's the best way to end the show (: but i'm sort of getting vaguely annoyed that NO ONE knows about Merlin's magic! i thought that the Morgana episode might've gotten her involved with it, but NO, Merlin manages to hide it yet again (with his amazing delivery of FLOWERS!)

well, i began to like Martha, and then i think it was after the series had finished i just... developed this anger with her! it was so bizarre! not saying i hate her, i really respect Freema and her acting, and i'm growing used to Martha again. ah yes, i think her just leaving, and deciding that she was going to leave was brilliant (: much better than Rose getting plopped in that alternate universe and Donna... ooooh don't even get me started on Donna ;D

OMG, i've been trying to find someone that's looking forward to Matt Smith! i'm really looking forward to him, and i'm a serious DT fan, which people find really weird!

exactly! and i guess it's more down to what sort of character you like, and how YOU think the character should be portrayed (: and of course, how attractive the actor IS ;D

Hey, dropped by from Merlin friending meme. You seem cool, mind if I friend?

[identity profile] dk323.livejournal.com 2010-07-07 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
Hello! :) Aw thank you -- glad I seem cool to you. I try. ;) Sure, you could friend me. I'll friend you back. :) I'm knee-deep in Merlin fandom these days, so I love making new friends who like the show as well. :D

[identity profile] cinematixyz.livejournal.com 2012-05-31 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
No problem, we are here if you change your mind ;)

[identity profile] dk323.livejournal.com 2012-05-31 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
Thanks for being understanding. :) I might reconsider in the future. Anyway my LJ's probably a bit unexciting at the moment since I'm working on a Big Bang fic and that's mostly what I talk about now. :p

I'm a BATB fan too. :)

[identity profile] dk323.livejournal.com 2013-01-19 05:47 am (UTC)(link)
Hi there. :) I watched the first few episodes of BatB, but I'm currently behind on the show. :( I need to catch up on it. I like what I've seen of the show so far.

Thanks for friending me. :) I admit I don't have anything related to BatB on my LJ...the fandom I mainly participate in is Merlin fandom. I'm interested in keeping up with BatB though.

[identity profile] violetinstincts.livejournal.com 2013-01-20 06:30 am (UTC)(link)
That's perfectly fine. :)

The more BATB you watch the more you will love it. I'm trying to keep everything together BATB at [livejournal.com profile] beautybeastfans, so that is a great place to start and frequent. I just love the story line if it is the Disney version or the CW version. I was Belle once upon a time twirling on a hill side reading a book and making shapes with clouds in the sky. :)

[identity profile] dk323.livejournal.com 2013-01-21 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
I'm glad to hear the show's going well. I'm looking forward to getting up to speed with it. Thanks for the community rec -- I'll check it out. :)

I loved the Disney version of BatB -- Belle was my favorite Disney princess. It's great that there's the CW version of BatB. :D

[identity profile] violetinstincts.livejournal.com 2013-01-21 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
When I watched the Disney version the first time, it was like watching magic and I was so engrossed with it that the world stopped to exist. I think I even fixed my hair that way for a few months. LOL!

[identity profile] dk323.livejournal.com 2013-01-22 05:59 am (UTC)(link)
I can't remember how I felt when I saw the Disney version for the first time, but I did enjoy it. I liked that Belle was a book-reader and a brunette like me. I also have BatB: The Enchanted Christmas that I got on VHS years ago. :p

I did a rewatch of Beauty and the Beast some months ago, and I'd almost forgotten how amazing and magical the film was. I was reminded of why I fell in love with the movie in the first place. The musical score is a big part of that for me. The beginning sequence is one of my favorite parts.
