Ode to The Eleventh “… then there were the eyes. Those old man’s eyes. When Smith was at his best (and he was frequently wonderful) it was all in the eyes; exhausted eyes, furtive and alien and so very, very old. More even than Eccleston and Tennant - who weren’t at all bad at it themselves - But Smith excelled at the sudden switch of tone, the moment where he’d pivot on a single phrase and the antic clown would fall away, replaced with someone aged and scarred and deeply unknowable. Obligatory Tom Baker aside, no other Doctor has seemed so truly ancient and otherworldly …”— Tom Phillips. “Matt Smith, the rise and fall of the hipster Doctor”, New Statesman, 3rd June 2013.Ode to The Eleventh1 year ago in Personal More Like This

FAQ: A Journal of Impossible ThingsI keep getting the same questions from both Doctor Who fans and those who have no idea what's going on, so I thought I'd write a journal entry about this project. It's a bit silly to write a separate FAQ section for this, but I really need a place to link back to whenever I'm asked something about this series of drawings.FAQ: A Journal of Impossible Things4 years ago in Personal More Like This
WHAT'S A JOURNAL OF IMPOSSIBLE THINGS?
It's a dream journal featured in the Doctor Who episodes Human Nature (3x08) and The Family of Blood (3x09). In this two-parter, the Doctor rewrote his biology and became human in order to hide from the Family of Blood. The Doctor's human persona John Smith kept a journal where he wrote down and drew things he saw in his dreams, which were actually memories of his adventures as the Doctor.
The original prop journal was created by artist Kellyanne Walker and the text was provided by Paul Cornell.
SO WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?
My aim is to draw my own version of the Journal. I intend to draw all

~~Disclaimer; i do not own dr. who.~~
The doctor lazily orbited the earth, fiddling with various knobs and buttons on the console. It had been a month since he'd lost the Ponds, and he was still very much in pain over it. He was alone again…He shook himself of such sad thoughts, and straightened his signature red bow tie. All of time and space needed him! This was no time to pity himself. He was the Doctor after all, it was his job to make people feel better.
He turned a knob on his scanner, mostly it was static. He was about to turn it off, when a voice rang loudly through the haze. Someone, somewhere, was incredibly sad. So sad, that the TARDIS picked it up. "Well, now that won't do at all! Sounds like someone needs a Doctor." He said, grinning at his own clever pun, and straightening his bow tie. He threw switches, pressed buttons, and checked monitors. Trying to locate the exact location of the voic

The sounds of bottles hitting walls, and screaming adults rang through the quiet woods. You raced out, pulling your left sleeve low over your bleeding arm. Tears streaming down your face, you trudged through the cold December air. You recalled the events which had lead to yet another violent fight.
Your hard working mother had come home earlier than she was supposed to, she found you in the bathroom, a razor blade in your hand, the word 'Useless' carved in red on your pale, delicate, adolescent skin. She had screamed, and smacked you across the face, telling you how stupid that was. She had

Gallifrey really does exist ??????????????????????I learned yesterday from Deviant Art user Holly :iconShockwaves-Sister: that a planet has recently been discovered which is said to resemble Gallifrey, the Doctor's homeworld from our very own D O C T O R W H O !!!!!!!!!!!!.Gallifrey really does exist ??????????????????????1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There is a petition online to change the planet's name, currently called 'HD 106906 b', which sounds dead boring like those planets that get named something like 'P4X-639' in the US Sci-Fi series 'Stargate SG-1', to change the planets name to GALLIFREY !!!!!!!!!!!!.
The online petition currently has, at the time of writing this brief Journal, 67,942 signatures, I've done it, so please do too, let's get this newly discovered planet named GALLIFREY !!!!!!!!!!!!.
It needs at least 90,000 signatures in total, so it seems to be halfway there
The Longfall of 1979A journal that explains the new name.The Longfall of 19792 years ago in Personal More Like This
Names have more significance then you think. Names are very potent to me. When I find an interesting person, or else- grow to love a person, I make the effort to find what their name means. The first name, as well as the middle and last if I know it. A lot of times I'm astonished with the depth of meaning something as simple as what you're called has. Of course, screennames are not nearly as permanent, or perhaps as important to most of us. But I figured I'd take the time to explain myself.
I've been TeamRAKENZAN for a long time-- I just hit 2 years last month. Though not nearly as long as other artists that have been here for 5, 6 years or even since the beginning of DeviantART. But I've made a small name for myself, and perhaps a few people know my name out there.
I wrote an old blog entry very early in my DA history-- describing what "TeamRAKENZAN" meant, (because it did have some meaning); and maybe I'll tell that story again sometime.

Recently I've noticed that a lot of groups don't know how to open join requests.
(That, or The founder just doesn't want join requests open.)
if you don't want to keep Sending Invitations all the time I suggest reading this journal.
1.) go to admin area,
2.) click the manage members button,
3.) click where it says: members,
4.) where it says join requests click underneath where it should say are not allowed,
5.) now select automatically approved.
Now your join requests should be open, good luck with your groups and have a good day!

ElizabethOn April 9th, at 10:00 pm-- I went through one of the hardest nights of my life.Elizabeth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had a friend. Her name was Elizabeth. Of course, we haven't known each other for very long-- so I don't know if I was, in fact- a friend to her. But she certainly was to me.
She had a difficult life, and despite the love I had for her- she was taken away from me; piece by painful piece. She had much pain in her life, and I only pray that I was able to ease a bit of it off when I would message her. Day by day, we spoke-- we encouraged and told each other about the things we overcame. She was getting better. She got a job, she was able to move out of her home-- things were looking up for her, and that also meant it was looking up for me. It was a love that came from Hard times.
On April 9th, as I got home from the airport, I checked her blog to see how she was doing.
I found a queued message stating that if I was to find that message, it would mean that she was successful in her attempt to take her life. O

Groups: How to Set Your Membership/Join RequestsThe new Groups system is great, isnt it? Once you get a handle on all of the extra settings, the system makes it easier than ever to run your own communities and clubs. But getting the hang of all those settings does take a while. The main issue that Ive seen is in regards to the join requests.Groups: How to Set Your Membership/Join Requests5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When you first start a group, or convert your club, the request to join option comes with the default setting of being disabled, or closed (presumably to give the founder time to set everything up before accepting members). But when you look at your groups main page, the join our group button is right there, as if requests are open (dA should consider changing this at some point).
Now, a groups founder isnt going to request to join their own group; theyll just see the join button on the main page, and assume that anyone can click on it and request to join. It wont be until some

How long will you be in R.O.M for?
It seems a lot of you either do not read this important journal letting you all know whats going on, as we are getting a LOT of emails with people sending in their secrets. We ARE in R.O.M, you can not send your secrets into us.
Due to the amount of people still sending their secrets in, it is taking far too much of our time replying to all of you letting you know we are in R.O.M and your secret will not be accepted. Because of this we will not be replying to them anymore. If you send an email into us with a secret. It will just be deleted without being replied to.
Very sorry about this, but it is just taking up far too much of our time, slowing things down so much that we are not getting enough secrets submitted to be able to get out of R.O.M.
At this point we do not have a time / date when we will

Let's get some creative juices flowing!
We've been pretty inactive mainly because of lack of prizes for future competitions... and we're still low on prizes but let's get something going to promote activity in the group. This mini-contest will have a really simple topic, because we want as many members to participate as possible.
This theme has probably already been used in a previous competition but it's always fun to revisit.
THE TASK IS SIMPLE: All you have to do is draw or write a scene that includes at least one canon Transformer and one canon character from another fandom. For example, you can draw Megatron and Loki from the Marvel Universe together, or write about Sideswipe and Sunstreaker pulling a prank with Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series. Be creative!
