Vid: Peek-A-Boo - Who else was I going to fall in love with? (River/Doctor) + doodles

I made a little thing for River and the Doctor's anniversary. It's a study in boops and looks, no angst, lots of sweetness. I hope you enjoy.

Editor: radiolaires
Footage: Doctor Who
Music: Rose Murphy - Peek-A-Boo

Ages ago, I started rambling about how sometimes I fantasize (and shout) about actresses cast in the Doctor's roles... And particularly actresses who would be time-relevant. I ended up doodling at ungodly hours and this was the result:

From left to right: Anna Chancellor as Nine, Vinette Robinson as Eleven, Gina Bellman as Ten.

The latter led to my first realistic digital colour portrait (because I am really fond of Gina as a charming bastard running around in a tux and tie)

Well, you see my problem.

And I also doodled this little thing, which I now hate, but, hullo, I opened this post with smiles, why not finish it with tears:

Computers don’t dream // Of course I dream, I tell her. Everybody dreams.


About not being around lately, not even a little: I am quite sorry. I am bored with what I create and argue, so I sort of stayed away from LJ. I still ramble and doodle and gif on tumblr, but I am a bit blah with what I can offer to the DW fandom, and the Leverage community is much more active on tumblr, so I don't feel like posting my stuff here. Which is a shame because I love the people and the discussion here. My words are still not working and I am hung-up about using them here. But every so often, it hits me how I much more enjoy people and fandom on LJ and I should really get over myself and reignite the flame. I miss this. I miss you people.

I'm glad to see you back around here, I always love your stuff and hearing from you.

Loved the video. I had to wait until I got home to see it, my computer at work wouldn't let me, (old browser). Very apt. I can just see River going "peek a boo" at him sometime. :D

Love your female versions of the Doctors, those rock. I especially liked the 9th one. And that one with the tie definitely works.

I'm glad you added the 12 and River pic. I'm just sad that 12 turned out to be a personality I don't really want to see River with. (I just get the impression they'd be fighting, and not in the fun way 11 and River do. Just personal opinion.) Although I am sad Moff basically said River's time is over, it lasted all too short a while.

But good to see you back. Be sure to keep dropping in once in a while.

Months later, THANK YOU! It's always nice to exchange with fans who are still engaged in the Doctor/River fandom.

The song is ridiculously cute and fitting for River and Eleven early in their relationship. When everything was banter and flirting and befuddlement on everyone's face.

Anna Chancellor as Nine is a recurrent dream of mine. I love Eccleston and what he did with Nine, but oh, to witness Chancellor lends her sharp intelligence to Nine...

I don't know about Twelve and River... I have qualms about it, because Twelve is obviously a different man and I wouldn't want to presume of his investment in River the way fans did with Eleven concerning Rose. But at the same time, I think River and Twelve would have a field day intellectually sparring. I am not sure you could get Eleven to sit long enough to have a friendly debate. But Twelve I can completely picture sitting hours with River discussing the merits of Judoon hands over a shovel for excavation.

Thank you for leaving a word! Your comments are always wonderful to read.

And we miss you!!

These are lovely pieces...and Gina just FITS as Eleven, doesn't she?!

And that last one...ohhh, my heart!

Good to see you, honey. And we'll be here whenever you need us, yeah?

*hugs you*

THANK YOU! I'm so late, sorry. But I also have a sudden urge to talk about Gina as Ten because YES. I truly discovered her through Leverage, since in Jekyll, she's great, but also underused. She's very striking and broody, but also very "lanky brunette with a wicked jaw". She would have made a great Ten.

THANKS! I love breaking hearts.

*re-hugs you because you are the loveliest*

That video is amazing!!! What a great choice for the song: different, lively, and adorable! It made the whole thing so new and unique. I will be humming that all day!

I've seen the River and Twelve artwork on tumblr; I still love it like I do with all your work.

Thank you very much! Sorry for the delay in answering. I always value your remarks!

I wanted to use a very light and fun song, and Rose Murphy is such an incredible artist, very unique as well. The keyword was no pain whatsoever in this video, so necessarily it made the narrative newer.

Thank you again! Your words are always so encouraging. Keep tuned for Eleven/River doodles though. I have a few old ones I need to clean and finish.

The video is just precious! :D Ah, it's too adorable and I love it. ♥ Your doodles are also wonderful as always, I really love the 12/River one. It's beautiful. ♥

Also, I missed you and stuff. ♥ How have you been, frustrations taken aside? (I'm sorry about that btw. Stubborn words suck.)

*hugs* ♥

*runs an hugs you*

THANK YOU! Last Doctor Who love fest, it seems. River belongs to the past of the show and it stings. I'm stuck drawing her as a ghost, ain't I? I am waiting for the show to grab me by the hand again and show me the stars.

I missed you too. I answered your email; we can keep in touch more easily that way.

*refuses to stop hugging you*

*clings back*

Have you heard about the River-in-BF thing? At least we have that! ♥

I love your icon soooo much.

Yes, I answered your email—mine went on for miles—but I'm glad we can keep in touch that way :)

I HAVE HEARD and I am a little bit really excited.

Ah, thanks! Planning to maybe change all of them. So I will be editing new icons soon and making the old and new ones available.

Haha, your apologising for the length of your mail is adorable. You know nothing about long mails. *evil laughter*
