Hello! So after seeing badwolfrun‘s weekly love for her favorite episodes through Midnight Monday and Satan Pit Saturday and ofstormsandwolves‘s celebration of Turn Left Thursday I thought I’d join the party and have a day dedicated to discussing my favorite episode which, some of you may know, is Doomsday. So…welcome to Doomsday Tuesday!
Here’s the rundown:
- Why Doomsday? (and why Tuesday?)
Well the main reason in answer to “Why Doomsday” is because it’s my favorite episode but really, there’s so much to talk about. There’s details upon details in this exquisitely crafted and exquisitely heartbreaking season finale. There are canon events to discuss and disect and cry over and then there’s all the “what ifs” and “could have beens.” Basically, there’s an unlimited amount of content related to this wonderful episode. (Don’t remember the episode? Give yourself a bit of a refresherhere and here!)
And why Tuesday, you ask? Because there’s not a day of the week that starts with D in English and Doomsday Tuesday just sounds cool.
- Is it just Doomsday or is Army of Ghosts also included?
Both episodes! I just generally refer to the two-parter as Doomsday since it’s easier.
- Okay, so what can I do to participate?
There are plenty of ways you can participate! You can create fanworks and post them in the edit tags, be it a fan fic, fanart, graphic, gifset, picspam, etc. Use the tag #doomsday tuesday within the first five tags (along with all the other edit or fic tags) so everyone can see it! Alternatively, you can generate discussion, ask questions, or just gush over this episode in general! (My inbox is certainly always open for Doomsday flailings) I personally am likely to set up a doomsday-themed queue to post during the day and reblog all the fanworks I see in the tags for Doomsday on Tuesdays. :)
- What if I don’t have time/missed this Tuesday?
That’s perfectly fine! I try to make this a weekly celebration so if you miss this Tuesday, you can always participate in the next week!
So go forth, spread the word, rewatch the episode, do whatever you want! I’ve made my choice and it’s to spend Tuesdays wallowing in my love for Doomsday.
Also, for those of you who may be interested, chocolatequeennk (and me, kinda) is running a Doomsday Month in July, so keep an eye out for that as well!
