1. [community profile] nightonficmountain should open on schedule as all assignments are in. Of course there is the possibility that someone'll delete their work and/or entire ao3 account between now and Wednesday /still bitter


2. The latest Doctor Who episode made me cry. I'm a sucker for certain tropes. Also, I love me some Romans (especially Romans getting to face their bullshit) and that was an A++ use of Tacitus' "They make a desert and call it peace" speech. Also also, crows. YAY CROWS!


3. I bought some comics, because the bear is dead.*

* No actual bear harmed in the making of this post.

Oh, crud, now there are Romans? I may have to selectively watch this season.

The Doctor and Bill (the new companion, she's AMAZING I LOVE HER) have an argument about what happened to the Ninth legion, so they go back in time to find out.

I keep hearing wonderful things about Bill. I got so burned by the Twelfth Doctor's first season, I've just been staying away since. As a person who imprinted early on Rosemary Sutcliff's The Eagle of the Ninth (1954), however, I may not have a choice about not watching this one.

Fandom consensus is that the book is Sutcliff's Eagle of the Ninth (I think this is confirmed somewhere, but I can't find it).

Excellent.

Imho this is the best episode of the season so far.

I'll see if I can get [personal profile] spatch to finagle it off the internet for me. Thank you.

I even read all of Tacitus back in high school but am ashamed to say I don't remember the speech (I don't remember anything, honestly, my memory has been trash ever since the meds). Fascinating!

Man, people who delete exchange works after fulfilling the assignment...grr.
