they are ultimately the best

anonymous asked:

I have a very important question. From which series should i start Doctor Who? Do I start from the 2005 series or do I have to find the first series and start from the first doctor? I am very confused. And please don't hate on me for starting this late 😁

Well, now. Big question. With the show in its 54th year, it must seem a little daunting? Classic Who will always be, well… classic, and is full of beloved characters. There are however other ways to jump aboard now. Let’s give you the lowdown… 

‘An Unearthly Child’ is where the greatest show on Earth began, back in 1963 with the incredible William Hartnell.  This would ultimately be the best possible starting point, though it’s a long, long journey to catch up. The classic era can always be revisited once you’ve joined our wonderful fandom, but this is one option for you. The classics are definitely unmissable! Oh we’ve got so much to talk about! *takes breath*. Okay, onwards… 

‘Rose’ is what is considered the first episode of ‘New Who’. We now have the fantastic Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper at the helm, and Russell T Davies has brought the show back for modern audiences, back in 2005! This is honestly where we began, and after watching the first series, we were super excited to enjoy the classics! *let the massively huge DVD collection begin!* 

This is a wonderful starting point, and one we’d strongly recommend. You’ll get just one fantastic series with Christopher, and then three brilliant series with David Tennant (you’re going to love him too - Allons-y!).

David is lovable, charming, and to quote one of our favourite episodes, “He’s like fire and ice and rage. He’s like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and can see the turn of the universe. And… he’s wonderful!” *squee!*

Matt Smith takes over for Series 5 (2010), with the Mighty Moff (AKA Steven Moffat) as the new lead writer. Word of warning: Cravings for fish fingers & custard and Jammy Dodgers will begin, and you might find yourself sporting a bow tie and fez! A totally unforgettable era! Geronimo! 

Eventually, it’s time for one last bow for the superb Matt Smith, as the keys to the TARDIS are handed over to the cosmic Peter Capaldi. You’re now bang up-to-date, and have three exciting series to enjoy with The Doctor’s latest incarnation… HOWEVER… one of Moffat’s latest decisions were to create an episode designed specifically for new viewers. A perfect “jumping-on point” for you. You might want to check out Series 10′s ‘The Pilot’. You need no knowledge of preview episodes, and can dive straight into a universe of space and time travel. This was last week’s episode in fact, so hop-on! If you decide to start here, you can always go back and enjoy the classics, and of course, the previous ‘New Who’ stories. They’re all so fabulous! 

To summarise, ‘An Unearthly Child’ is the first ever story. Right at the beginning. The very beginning! 

‘Rose’ is where it all came back for modern audiences in 2005 - an amazing starting point, and where we started ourselves! 

‘The Pilot’ is the first episode of the current series (Series 10) This is yet another brilliant jumping-on point for you. Older episodes will always be there to catch-up on someday! 

Now, we’re sure other fans have their own suggestions to add, so please be sure to check out their responses too. Oh, and… Welcome to the greatest fandom in the galaxy! 

4.23.2017

we are called to live in complete abandon. abandoning our plans, our dreams, ourselves, dropping all our wants in surrender to a God who knows all, sees all, loves all, and ultimately knows what is best.

that sounds incredible in theory, to throw your whole mysterious life into the hands of an all knowing being, but it’s never that easy. it never feels that good.

sometimes you are surrendering but still holding a tight grip on the thing you must let go and God has to break some bones to get your fingers off. because he loves you. because he has better for you. because it’s simply not yours to keep.

every “no” he gives is for the safety and protection of our hearts. every decision he makes is well thought out. it is not a waste of time to trust his “no"s, he knows much more than you ever will. it is the most romantic risk worth taking, trusting the Creator of the world with your soul.

he is timeless. right now, while you’re here with nothing on your side, fate not throwing you any bones, he is seeing the end, with you jumping for joy and thanking him for working it out. you see right now, he sees beginning to end, all at once, and he isn’t scared one bit.

I know my reaction is kind of late. I had a very busy day. I had 6 hrs of school on a Sunday then I had to do a report due today. It’s now almost 5am here but I just cannot sleep w/o posting something about these glorious photos first.

More than anything these are pieces of art. Cole is like the ultimate best “instagram boyfriend” for consistently taking more than just IG-worthy shots of Lili but almost if not certainly gallery-worthy shots.

I am both amazed and intrigued with the photos. Intrigued in the sense that I wanted to know the process behind the shots, the BTS happenings, such as the mystery of the dress. 😉

Then, I read the captions. It took me awhile to decipher the meaning behind Cole’s caption. I just know that it talked about something fleeting but the style with which he writes shows me how much of a poet he is. It showed me how much of a romantic he truly is. On the other hand , Lili’s post gave me so much warmth. I can feel the joy and love from that simple caption. In my native language, “indulging” roughly translates to “pinagbigyan” which is “to give way or to give in to someone’s request. It can be inferred then by the choice of words
that Lili really wanted this and requested this and Cole gave in 😍

Meet Me by the River by c0rnfl0wer, Explicit, 11k
Every Kupala Night has come and gone without his attending, but now that Viktor Nikiforov is getting older and taking over the position as leader of his village, he has to start taking his life in a different direction. He wasn’t sure whether he expected anything at all in this way. But when Yuuri catches his wreath, he finds the path he had always longed for.
Ivan da Maria by c0rnfl0wer, Explicit, 10k (WIP) **Graphic depictions of violence and major character death
Viktor never minded when human civilization built up around him, or when other spirits began sharing the waters with him. He easily dominated every tradition that the centuries presented; that was what he minded. No one wants to be known for tragedy. No one wants to be subjected to loneliness and despair forever. No one wants to drag their beloved one down. Everyone wants a happy ending, even if it isn’t in their nature.

And then, just as Victor was crying alone in the middle of the woods… he appeared.

Yuuri doesn’t know why Victor Nikiforov is in Detroit, and he doesn’t know why Victor–an Olympic ice skating champion–is pretending to need his help learning to skate. And frankly? He doesn’t care what the reasons are, as long as he gets to spend time with his idol.

You Set My Heart on Fire by whelvenwings, Teen, 36k
Everyone has a soulmate. And everyone sees any marks on their soulmate’s skin appear on their own body; it starts with the first marks, drawn on by the midwife at birth. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a soulmate who replies, but Yuuri does, and he knows that he should feel fortunate - however, when he’s trying to make a living as a small-time painter, and his soulmate is the famous artist, Viktor Nikiforov… well, it seems slightly less than fortunate.

All The Better by fundips, Mature, 15k (WIP) **Graphic depictions of violence 
Viktor Nikiforov is often labeled as a “big bad wolf” by urban legend, though he doesn’t exactly consider himself a terrible being. He doesn’t try to do bad, even though his past could be riddled with such. He settles down in a small town, part-wolf by night and human by day. However, Viktor isn’t the only one who lives a double life. Yuuri Katsuki catches his eye one day, and Viktor discovers the boy to not be all he seems to be.

Send Me An Angel by Neoniichan, Teen, 41k (WIP)
They’d discussed becoming parents before, but they’d never expected it would happen in such a profound, life-changing, and beautiful way. Both Yuri and Viktor are totally in awe of how overwhelmingly perfect their son is in their eyes, from the time he’s a tiny newborn and increasingly more so as he grows into a young man. They wanted to be parents, but are they really ready for the struggles this whole parenthood thing brings?

Christophe Giacometti watched the new interviewee walk out of Victor’s office. Everything about him was wrong from the clothes and the haircut to his general attitude and walk. At the same time there was something naïve about him and Chris was prepared to bet that he’d just graduated from college. “Who is that sad little person?” he asked Victor. “Are we doing a before and after piece I don’t know about?”
