Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Waves! Hello all, I'm Clocketpatch and I will be your reccer for the next fortnight. I have a mix of stories to share with you, though I'll admit in advance that the balance does skew towards Twelve, which is probably quite appropriate with the new series airing.


Story:
Honest Mistakes
Author: Singwithin
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 888
Author's Summary: The Doctor is on a mission, Clara is acting strange, and Buckingham Palace has entirely too many corridors.
Characters/Pairings: Clara Oswin Oswald, The Doctor (12th)
Warnings: None

Recced because:
This is a short fic but it packs in a fun bit of plot (Alien invasion! Undercover investigation!), along with some good Twelfth Doctor characterisation. I think Twelve’s character has evolved somewhat over the past few series, and this fic has his early days’ insults and face blindness down pat. I did have a brief “come on” moment, because surely Twelve was never quite as oblivious as the plot necessitates, but the epilogue and author’s note explain all, and left me grinning and wondering how Twelve will end up unraveling the mess he’s got himself and Clara into.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Archie
Content Notes/Warnings: none

Why this piece is awesome: This is an excellent, strong painting of Archie, looking moody and haunted. I really like the muted colours that fit the mood, and the 'tangled' texture and brush strokes. Click for the full effect.

"What Dan DiDio said he was looking for was a way to get the character back to what he called the core concepts of what Greg [Weisman] and I did in the '80s. But it had the stipulation that the starting point had to be the New 52 version of the character." - Cary Bates

"I don't know how politic it is for me to sort of go off on stuff that was done after Cary [Bates] and I left the book, but we were happy to bring him back to the core personality and the core aspects of the character that had made it fun for us, and we think fun for readers way back in those dark ages of the '80s." - Greg Weisman

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Queer lady person with too many records and not enough shelves for my books. I live in a small costal village, where I work in a museum. I enjoy traveling, cartoons, comedy and petting animals. She/her.

Top 5 fandoms: I used to be all about the fandoms, but lately... not so much! I read fanfic for a handful of fandoms, but it's p chill on that front at the moment. Actually, can podcasts be a fandom? I'm super into podcasts right now!
  1.  all the podcasts
  2.  Harry Potter
  3.  The Thick of It
  4.  Buffy (I'm re-watching the series along with Buffering the Vampire Slayer!)
  5.  Brooklyn 99

I mostly post about: Day to day life, music, comics, books, struggles with anxiety and depression etc.

My last three LJ posts were about: Life update, work goings-on, meeting a cat

How often do you post? It varies a lot! My journal was all but abandoned and updated about 1-2 times a year while on LJ, but putting in an effort to be more active after the move. Going try try to have at least two a week from now on.

How about commenting? Normally fairly regularly, but will vary in accordance to how busy I am irl.

A new Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite trailer, showing off the villain: Ultron Sigma, the fusion of Marvel's Ultron and Mega Man X's Sigma. He has a lightsabre.

Also a bunch of returning characters, including Strider Hiryu, Thor, Hawkeye and Chris Redfield.

Here's hoping for some X-Men characters.

"The title She-Hulk evokes light-hearted stories about a Jennifer Walters who is at peace with herself and in full control of her powers. This isn’t that book. On the other hand, the title Hulk implies all of the baggage that comes with that comic’s 50+ year history—the ongoing battle with the monster within—and that’s why it’s more appropriate for this series. Jen went through major trauma in Civil War II, and Mariko and Nico’s story will deal with the fallout of that trauma—the anxiety and anger, sometimes self-destructive, that comes along with it. If there is light at the end of the tunnel, Jen is going to have to search hard for it, and she’s going to have to battle with some pretty big monsters—including the one within—to find herself again."

Name: Lee
Age: 37
Location: Indiana, in the Midwestern US. (This disclaimer is included because way too many people think I'm on the Indian subcontinent.)
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: My Tumblr isn't active (I'm just there to read history fansqueeing, why lie) and since my IG is a selfie wasteland I would really rather not give it out to people I don't know well. It's not illegal to ask me for it once we know each other better, though :D My Goodreads needs an overhaul as it has been a million years since I was on there.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am self-aware, snide, smart, slightly scary, and something of a workaholic. I love words and history and dead things. I basically have two modes: THIS IS INCREDIBLE, I WANT TO BATHE WITH IT AND SLEEP WITH IT AND BE WITH IT 24/7 and "lol no1curr". Sometimes I am a spaz. Sometimes I am depressed.

Top 5 Fandoms: I really don't do fandom in the conventional sense and don't make very many fannish posts. About the most fannish stuff I do is occasionally churn out some Greek mythology fanfiction (I LIEK TEH TROJAN WAR), which is under a cut so you can skip it if you don't want to read it. I'm not sure if history counts as a fandom, but the ancient world, the long eighteenth century, and Tokugawa Japan are three of the great loves of my life.

I mostly post about: Real life, in which my lolmom and my jobs play rather large roles. Mildly entertaining things that someone said or did at work. Occasionally things I wrote, if I'm okay with people seeing them. Sometimes the odd to-do list, if I'm okay with people seeing that. Things I'm reading. Occasionally pictures. Anything that comes to mind, really. I may set up some filters for religious stuff (I'm Pagan, agnostic always, currently not-very-practicing and trying to fix that), but those are opt-in and no opprobrium applies if you're not interested.

I rarely post about: Politics. Social justice (my own interests therein are things like "does everyone have enough to eat? Does everyone have a safe place to stay?", not some of the more extreme things you find on the outskirts of Tumblr). My sex life (one, that's private, and two, I'm usually single and celibate, and pretty happily so). Things that I have been asked to keep in confidence. Things that I don't think anyone needs to know about.

My last three posts were about:
1.) I had a weird dream/here's how my life is going
2.) Hello LJ friends, I am no longer going to be on LJ but you can still follow me here
3.) (OLD) I drew a thing, here is a broken image link from before I switched domain hosts

How often do you post? When time allows. I work two jobs and am at work or in bed a good deal of the time. I'm hoping to be more active here than I have been in recent years on LJ, though.

How about commenting? I comment when I have something to say, and I try to reply to comments I receive. I am not, however, the person who says "hi" or "i leik cereal" just to have something to say, and if you have an emotional investment in MASS QUANTITIES OF COMMENTS, I'm probably not your man.
