For real though; thank you @partylikeawordstar. You’ve changed my life with this series and I’ll be forever grateful. Now, when I’m eighty years old, I’ll be able to look down at this and remember where it all began.
“Here we are. Where it all began. You remember your mother’s favorite passage? Revelation 21:6. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life, freely. Don’t you see? This is what it all means. The water, the purifier. THIS is the water of life. Your mother’s dream. No point in wasting time. Let’s get to work. There’s much to be done.“
I’ll be honest with you, I was not expecting to be blown away by this
trilogy. In fact, I wasn’t really that eager about starting it. I’d
heard some fantastic things about it from my Goodreads friends, but at
the same time it was adapted from a web series, was a romance and I’ve
read my fair share of long romantic fanfiction. Let me get something
straight: this is not one of them. The trilogy was
well-written, engaging and definitely a novel – I mean I finished the
whole thing in four days, which is why the review is not separated by
book (it’s pretty hard to remember where one finished and the next
i have really strong feelings about the first scene in tfc where neil tries to run an andrew hits him with his racket. i mean, this story is so memorable and important and its such an incredible ride. to think back to the beginning and remember where it all began–one Boyfriend™ stopping the other from running for the rest of his life with one swing–is oddly nostalgic and it makes me smile. like who knew it would go this far? not neil josten that’s for sure.
On the 26th March 2005, at 7:00pm, a legend was reborn. Now about 10 years later, Doctor Who has gone from long-lost TV classic to worldwide phenomenon. We’ve been through 5 Doctors, 8 companions, 3 TARDISes, 3 spin-offs, 2 head writers, 12 specials and 8 series. But we all have to remember where it all began, with Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper in the classic episode “Rose”, in which the Ninth Doctor got a new companion, Rose Tyler, and fought against the Autons and Nestene Consciousness, monsters he had already battled twice before.
I propose that to celebrate 10 years of this beloved show being revived, fans of the show could rewatch Rose at the original air time, 7.00pm on the 26th March, but this time in 2015. We could maybe even live tweet it, with the hashtag #10YearsOfWho. It’s just an idea, but I know I will be doing it, to celebrate 10 years of being a fan.
