turlough: Gabe Saporta & Gerard Way starting to embrace, August 2003 ((xover) our secret hiding spot)
[personal profile] turlough
Right now they're all back stage at the 9:30 Club in DC, and there's more booze than any of them actually know what to do with, though they're all trying their damnedest. Gerard is telling everyone he's drunker than he's ever been and there's the sickly sweet smell of pot in the air. Gerard's leaning on James, heavy and emphatic as he talks about something Gabe can't quite hear. Gabe watches them from his spot against the wall, his own drink barely touched.

"Hey, Saporta." Mikey bumps Gabe's shoulder and steals his drink, emptying half the cup in one long swallow. "Good show tonight."

"Good show every night, Mikeyway. For I am Gabe Saporta. And we are Midtown." He proclaims it, intoning from on high and Mikey giggles like Gabe knew he would. He and Mikey go way back, further than him and Gerard, but not by much. Mikey's a buddy. Gerard's always been on the outskirts, hanging on by virtue of being related to Mikey, though now his name usually comes first when people start talking. A few people have started rumors, that Mikey's pissed at Gerard for claiming the spotlight, but anyone who really knows Mikey knows that he's happier being in Gerard's shadow than he would be anywhere else in the world. Mikey needs the music, and the fact that he has it and his older brother means Mikey's probably the happiest guy in the world most of the time. "Also, you owe me a drink."

"Yeah, yeah." Mikey leans against him and the wall, surveying the crowd. "You have plans for tonight?"

I tried to find Who fandom on DW a year ago and... well, let's just say it was a less than successful experiment.

A brief self-introduction… )

Britbox.com now has all classic Who LEGALLY AVAILABLE via streaming service, $7/mo in the US. About flipping time; I've emailed the Beeb and Doctor Who about a streaming service for years. They should've done it during the hiatus, but better late than never. Caveat: they're missing a few Dalek serials— I suspect licensing issues— as well as The Five Doctors and the 1996 movie, but they've got all other complete serials from Hartnell through McCoy plus the unaired pilot version of Unearthly Child, Adventure in Time and Space, and a few other features. Also a fair amount of other good classic British TV including lots of mysteries (Campion with Peter Davison and the Jeremy Brett Holmes recommended), Eastenders, Red Dwarf, Upstairs, Downstairs, and a bunch of other good stuff (but not Blake's 7, the Avengers, or Python. Hopefully soon.) 

I think we need to support Britbox so they'll keep it up and, hopefully, expand it for Whovians in other countries to enjoy. Because fans deserve inexpensive ways to sample ALL of Who, past and present. (Speaking of which, I've also posted a linked index of all the free Big Finish Doctor Who audios on Spotify, uploaded by Big Finish, so they, too, are legal.)

I remain behind on everything so many of life's sundries at the minute, and am still time-shifting all viewing.

Fingers crossed I am getting back into the knack of meta/reviewing. As before, I am sticking these up on AO3. If you're interested they are here: Knock Knock & Oxygen.

Thank you.

Comments are always welcome. Replies to those may also be a tad belated.

There are some pics of cosplayers at the bottom of the article. Most reviews are of the panels in the Gallifrey (Doctor Who) and Otherwords (general sf/fantasy) track rooms, along with reviews of some of the actor and writer guests in the ballroom (Main Programing).
turlough: Gerard Way being his usual adorkable self, autumn 2006 ((mcr) gerard way is adorkable)

"Wentz came for him early." Frank's grin is a little malicious. "He's taking him to a water park all day."

Gerard thinks about Mikey under the sun all day. "Was he happy with that?"

He should have been up, should have been there to chase Wentz away if Mikey was being pushed into it.

Frank laughs. "Relax, he was fine with it."

Gerard makes a skeptical noise around the cigarette smoke he's just inhaled, and passes his pack to Frank without being asked.

"Mikey isn't going to do anything he doesn't want to," Frank says as he lights up and Gerard tries not to think about how he makes it look effortless and beautiful.

"I guess."
