Things which have made me happy lately:

» I ordered the White Noise EP An Electric Storm and a CD of BBC Radiophonic music by the likes of Delia Derbyshire, and both came the other day.

» [livejournal.com profile] bewarethespork has made a community for people to post and read meta about Doctor Who and its various spin-offs without -- as much as can be prevented by a team of conscientious moderators -- having to deal with the racism, sexism, etc. of the wider fandom, which is wonderful: [livejournal.com profile] metatardis

» Thinking about all the things this series of Doctor Who is (still): I keep realising and then forgetting that it is also Drop Dead Fred; I also keep realising and then forgetting that Amy Pond is indeed Beauty and the Beast's Belle:

          "I want much more than this provincial life.
          I want adventure in the great wide somewhere;
          I want it more then I can tell,
          and for once it might be grand
          to have someone understand
          I want so much more then they've got planned."


Magical candelabras in La Belle et la Bête» While I was thinking about that, I discovered that Beauty and the Beast is finally going to be released on [Blu-ray and] DVD (for the first time in eight years!) this winter. You can tell that the Disney vault system works, because I am too excited right now to care that the only reason I'm willing to pay £16 for a DVD is because I know it will only be available for three months or so before being taken out of print again until I am no doubt in my thirties.

» I watched Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la Bête the other day. I will never decide which I really love the most between this and the Disney version, except that I will no doubt always tell people that it is this version.

» Thinking that if it turns out that the only way I can resent my UCL IS password is by visiting the university in person, at least maybe I will be able to make a day of it and arrange to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] glammetalkitten and [livejournal.com profile] mskatej. (Hopefully?)

» Deciding that I am absolutely, almost definitely going back to university this autumn, regardless.

» I tidied my room today; it is less of a depressing hole now.

» All of my wonderful friends. ♥

I have never felt less sane than I do right now.

...so, hey, this is a post all about how the fifth series of Doctor Who is really Michael Ende's The Neverending Story in disguise. Well, no; it's about the commonality of particular [awesome] themes and ideas to both Doctor Who (the original neverending story, let's be honest) and The Neverending Story. I have focused mostly on the book rather than the film, but both are relevant to this post. Obviously this post contains spoilers for The Neverending Story (book and film), and Doctor Who up to "The Pandorica Opens". I also mention the title of the next episode although there are no spoilers for that episode contained in this post.

the more you try to erase me, the more that I appear )
