-- So I went ahead and changed the story summary on Teaspoon for "On the Benefits of Having an Attic." For the curious, the original summary was simply the first line of the fic: Have returned home with K-9. Very happy that the Doctor sent him to me as a gift.
At the time I figured that the first line would serve as an introduction to the idea of the fic, but in retrospect I think it's a pretty uninformative summary. The new summary is: The Doctor sent K-9 to Sarah as a gift. Now what's she supposed to do with all the other stuff?
Hopefully that does a better job of telegraphing what the fic is about, and giving people an idea as to whether they might want to read it.
-- I generally have a really hard time coming up with good story titles and good story summaries. Anyone else have difficulty with this?
-- Got to see the first episode of "Merlin" series 2 yesterday -- yay! It was great to see the show back. I had to laugh at SyFy's marketing, though. They're really trying to pretend that the show is completely new and original and never-before-broadcast-anywhere. I don't see the big deal about admitting that it's a U.K. import, but then again, I like
-- I'm feeling like I'm the only person in the Doctor Who fandom who hasn't seen "The Eleventh Hour" yet. Am I crazy for wanting to wait for the BBC America broadcast? Maybe I'm just old, but I really prefer to watch TV on the TV -- i.e., not on the internet/computer. It's just not the same for me. I also want to support BBC America since I'm lucky enough to have access to the channel (unfortunately many Doctor Who fans in the U.S. don't -- even I have to pay extra for it as it's not part of my regular cable lineup). This will be my first full season (series) after getting on LJ, though, and I can see already that it's going to be an interesting challenge to be two weeks behind everyone else. At least I've succeeded in remaining pretty spoiler-free so far. I have picked up a few hints about the changes to the TARDIS, but that's it. Hope it stays that way!
