Happy 2015, folks. May it be far more awesome than the year that preceded it. Yes, even if you had an excellent 2014 already.
My year was...mostly good on the social front (friendship is magic, etc), and significantly less good on the career front, but at least that part ended on an up note? So here's to positivity and optimistic beginnings, I guess. And I'll be turning 30 this year, so, y'know, milestones and stuff.
Also, Yuletide reveals! I can now thank Aderam
properly for my gift fic, What the Fuk Is That?
, and again reiterate the need for everyone to read Tanya Huff's books so that we can talk about them properly. And I wrote a thing:9 Strangely Arousing Things In Doctor Who

Summary: Why (Dan thinks) Doctor Who is super sexy. (In which Dan geeks out, Katie wants a Doctor-shaped boy toy of her very own, Michael should never be allowed anywhere near a sonic screwdriver, and Soren wants nothing to do with your British nerd show.)
OKAY LOOK, I have a bit of an obsession with the most excellent and nerdy webseries Cracked: After Hours
, and YOU SHOULD TOO. Basically, it's four friends hanging out in a diner discussing pop culture, and it is glorious and hilarious and many other adjectives as well! Each episode is only 6-8 mins long, you don't have to watch them in any kind of order (although the evolution of their in-jokes is super fun to experience, if you do go in order), and you become...strangely attached to those characters. (They're three cracked.com writers and their comedienne buddy, and they're basically playing caricatures of themselves.) If you need more convincing, fiercynn
made an excellent After Hours fandom primer
a little while back, they make a much more eloquent argument than I can.
But yeah, I was most pleased when I received this assignment, because it gave me an excuse to write my own episode of the show. I picked Doctor Who as a topic mainly because it's super geeky and yet has never yet been mentioned on the show itself, and just kind of spun out from there. Creating the graphics was by far the most time-consuming aspect of this one, but I was very determined to recreate the comedic style of the show, and therefore there must be visual aids. This one was just pure ridiculous fun to write. Enjoy!
