Doctor Who pairing meme

(from everywhere)

OTP ship: Ian/Barbara. Not that I ever fic it or anything. But they're both awesome individually and together they are just exponentially awesome. And their humanising influence is entirely responsible for the Doctor becoming a proper Good Guy. I got a lovely Ian/Babs fic for the otp_indomitable ficathon from bulky_monster. (Runner up in this category: Nyssa/Tegan)

Canon ship: Doctor/Master. Especially after the end of S3, but it's always been there. (Runners up: Ian/Barbara, Fitz/Trix)

"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a fork" ship: This category kind of has to be a current one, doesn't it? Or if old-school at least one that might happen in Big Finish. Non-year-that-never-was Martha/Tom. It's so horribly pasted-on to try and make that Martha's departure better. Yes, I'm still bitter. They had better do her Torchwood and S4 appearances right. Having said all which, I can see potential in Martha/Tom as a silly angst thing where he's all "Wait? You mean you've already met me and I died?" (Runner up: canon Doctor/Rose reunion)

"You are one sick bastard" ship: My kinky/borderline abusive take on Doctor/TARDIS.

"I dabble a little" ship: Mickey/Jake. Because Mickey is great and deserves it. (Runners up: every ship ever, pretty much.)

"It's like a car crash" ship: post-Time-War Doctor/Romana. Entirely a creation of fandom, but who cares?

"Makes no canon sense but why the hell not" ship: This is a bad category for me, I always always always try to have some sort of plausibility going on in the background. Luckily with near-omnipotent time travellers in the 'verse this is quite easy to achieve. So I'm just going to say something silly like Barbara/Lexa.

"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" 'Ship: I'm going to have to say Doctor/Rose here, aren't I? The crucial member of "everyone else" is of course RTD.

"When all is said and done" 'Ship: Hmm, I would say Seven/Ace except I don't ship them because (my inner ten year old insists) that would be Wrong. Oh, OK, I'll be honest: it's Ten/Martha, because it's the first time I ever found myself invested in what would happen to a Who ship rather than just enjoying it as a bit of a fun.

ETA: Help! What's that comm with the long-form Who fic ficathon? If the deadline is nice and far away I might sign up for it to kick my three-years-in-the-making Turlough kink thing into gear.

  • Another thing about EoT ...

    Pinning down the Doctor's age at 906 in that conversation with Wilf annoyed me. OK, so he lies all the time and this whole 900 thing is nonsense…

  • End of Time pt 2: immediate reaction

    I am bloody unhappy about the companions in this, even though no one died: The Martha/Mickey spoiler was true, then. BAH. That makes me…

  • End of Time spec

    Does anyone else think we're going to get a trial of the Doctor by the Timeys? It's one of the major old school tropes the new series hasn't been…
