Half-Past Toast and Teatime on Blue Jay Way

Reversing the polarity? Yes, of course!

This journal is friends-only. Please do not "friend" me without asking first. :) My flist is already huge and I really can't keep up with it! :( We need to know each other in RL, or else have had a few discussions on a community and mutually decided that we wanted to friend each other. :) Please just don't friend me if I just bought something from you or you think my user name is cool or we're in the same community but have never really "spoken" to each other. And if you are a bot or a spammer, take a long walk off a short pier, and find something better to do with your life than harass LJ users or anyone else. In Shatner's immortal words: "Get a life!"

Most of my posts are flocked. Sorry abt that. If we're friends on LJ or DWidth, it's all cool, though. :)

The main title of my journal comes from a Dick Francis novel (yes, the ex-jockey turned mystery writer), Second Wind. It was a lovely turn of phrase late in the book, and I liked it so much I "borrowed" it in homage to one of my favourite authors, and because also it seems so Doctor-ish. :) And I love blue jays. And the Beatles.

As for the sub-title, those are two of the most common phrases spoken by the Third Doctor. :)

The flist name comes from Jackson Lake speaking to the Tenth Doctor.


Vincent Starrett's "221b" here:

Courage isn't just a matter of not being frightened, you know. It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway.

The Third Doctor in Planet Of The Daleks

The way I feel about a movie has more to do with the experiences I had making it. Did I like the people? Did I like the location? Did I like the wardrobe? You know, wardrobe is very important. It's overlooked by a lot of people, but it's one of the most important things in the business because once you put on that outfit, you can be that guy. Like when you're a kid and you put on a cowboy suit, you're a cowboy. Easiest thing in the world.

Luke Askew on wardrobe (character actor in many Westerns and other dramas in film and TV)

"Imagine if you can, silver leaves waving above a pool of gold filled with singing fishes. Twin moons in an alien sky. If you like, I'll show them to you, and they will be, I promise you, the dullest part of the journey. Come with me and I will show you sights that you have never dreamed of. Or stay behind & regret it until your dying day."

The First Doctor (but not in any serial)

"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song; somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do!"

The Seventh Doctor at the end of "Survival" (episode three)

SARAH JANE: "Come on, you. Home. We've got work to do."
K-9: "Affirmative."
And Sarah Jane and K-9 are off down the path.

from School Reunion

When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it will never end. But however hard you try, you can't run for ever. Everybody knows that everybody dies, and nobody knows it like the Doctor. But I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark, if he ever, for one moment accepts it.

Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day.

Not today.

Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all.

Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair, and the Doctor comes to call... everybody lives.

River Song from Forest of the Dead

Hold my hand, Doctor. Try to see what I see. We’re so lucky we’re still alive to see this beautiful world. Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is in fact deep blue. And over there! Lights are blue. And blue in through the blueness, and the blackness, the winds swirling through the air… and then shining. Burning, bursting through! The stars, can you see how they roll their light? Everywhere we look, complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.
