Woah, careful, you need to make sure the grain goes in the right direction, that a chair fits in the world (who makes chairs, what do people do with chairs, what would the real impact be) and be sure you can answer every convoluted question r/worldbuilding throws your way.

I kid. I like r/worldbuilding. It's no r/HFY.

So, what do people think of the 13th Doctor?

I, for one, love it.

What kind of sci-fi are you looking for?

It's a comedy/theatre festival, the biggest in the UK, that practically takes over the entire city for a month. I'm going to be taking tickets and generally being helpful for a venue, which is a collection of theatre spaces.

Boy Gauph I wish I had your courage.

I'm going to the Edinburgh Fringe! Granted it's front of house and I'm technically doing it voluntarily, but it gets rid of the massive anxiety of having a successful show and the huge expense of somewhere to stay.

Hasn't this happened before? If I remember correctly, no Republican would allow it, because it would hand Democrats another state?

Labour. I'm lucky to be in one of the few seats where Labour, Lib Dem and Greens all have a fairly equal chance, where the Tories have basically none (under 10k last election).

In any other election, I'd have done a proper analysis against the three. But this is the only chance to give May a bloody nose, and I want to leave her reeling even if she eventually wins.

My Facebook feed has been entirely Labour (with a couple being Green) and I think a lot of people are setting themselves up for disappointment. My one hope now is that the curtain has been pulled back on May to reveal she's a soulless automaton with no actual leadership skills, and that Labour don't have another civil war. Corbyn actually seems to care about other human beings and willing to listen.

I did a democracy. On my birthday as well.

I can't wait to wake up in disappointment tomorrow. At least I'll be at volunteering and have a bunch of giraffes and lemurs to comfort me.

There's something about this show. I was feeling terrible all day yesterday, to the point where I had to go back to my parent's for the night because it was all too much. But watching last night's episode made me feel a little bit better.

I'll say it again, I'm loving this series so far. I hope Mathieson is regular staple of Chibnall's run.

Do you actually know any of these people, or only on the internet?

Also nobody is beholden to give anyone a platform.

A year later...

I'm enjoying this new series so far.

The Pilot introduced a Doctor/Companion relationship that we haven't seen in a while. I was worried when it was announced that Bill was gay that it was the only way Moffat could make sure his female characters don't fall in love with his main characters is to turn them off the entire sex. But it's actually pretty fun, in a way we haven't seen since Donna, I don't think. I think Bill and Heather's relationship (and Heather's character all-around) could have been more developed, but a strong start to the season.

Smile was good up until another human being appeared. The Doctor and Bill walking around a ghost town, trying to figure out what happened while being chased by slow robots, then a ticking clock because the colonists are about to wake up and it will be a massacre. Instead, the Doctor went "Ah, f' it, let's leave the humans at the mercy of a bunch of robots they can't communicate with". Still a million times better than In The Forest Of The Night.

Thin Ice did something to fix a problem that was really bad in Matt Smith's last season in particular. It breathed. We saw Bill and the Doctor have fun instead of running straight into the plot. The fun continued through the rest of the episode, with a lot of echos of The Unquiet Dead, Rose's introduction to the past. Bill asked the right questions and I think we got the right answers. We saw the Doctor's own brand of kindness, and I like it when we're reminded that the Doctor isn't human.

Knock, Knock was a creepy, creepy episode. David Suchet is a wonderful actor, and the design on the house was great. It subverted the horror trope of the victims being arseholes and deserving their fate. They were just normal students, none of them being the stereotype (which I know exist), with their weird interests. Though again, they could be more developed. Dunno why any freshers party would be allowed near fireworks.

Oxygen looks like something my players should be worried about if/when we start that Traveller campaign. And the three episodes after that apparently form a mini-trilogy which will be fun.
