On Monday, because we don't know how to slow down ;) - we went out to Paignton Zoo - and zoo trips ALWAYS mean a ton of pictures to get through afterwards *g*

Under the cut are some of the pictures and at the bottom of the post is the link to the full album on flickr.com - I have to admit, that I managed to cook it all down to 136 pictures in the album, where I came back from the trip with a good 600-700 pictures. It's what always happens - I get carried away ;)

We drove from just outside Tavistock, across Dartmoor to Paignton - along the way hoping to see Dartmoor ponies (wild ponies) and we got more than we'd bargained for - ended up behind a car with one of the ponies trotting along the road, not really able to get off it, but not really giving a toss about there being several cars behind it.

Still not great, but better than last week! 

WIPs currently active: 5

Words written this week: 3,259

WIPs that got no words this week: 0

WIPs that did get words this week:

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 104, still inching along. I probably just need to hit a scene break soon, but then I’m going to have to figure out what happens next, so…?

Born in the Blood: 821, and it is distinctly possible that every one of them is terrible, but I haven’t figured out how to make them less terrible so for now I’m just going with it.

Dragon!Bucky/tribute!Steve and Learning to Be a Good Citizen: 490, including realizing that I needed to insert an entire chapter before where I initially started writing. 

All Eternals Deck #2: 598, possibly all getting deleted when I redo the beginning because i figured out that I was doing it wrong…

Slavefic #6: 1,246, DIRELY in need of a POV change. Soon. Yes.

Great news today as we learn Doctor Who's 13th doctor will be a woman: Jodie Whittaker: Doctor Who's 13th Time Lord to be a woman. Let me tell you how non-surprised I am that this happens right after Moffat leaves. (Which makes the people crediting him all the more wtf-inducing; clearly this was the choice of the incoming showrunner, who has worked with Whittaker before.) I gave up early in Moffat's run; perhaps I'll check out this new iteration.

It also got me thinking about the kinds of movies and shows I want to see in the world, ones that do not yet exist. (Canon OT3!) Which then got me curious about what YOU GUYS think. So...let's do a poll!

Poll #18591 TV shows/movies *I* want to see!
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 8


If you could have any show or movie you want, what would it be?



Haven't done one of these in a while. I suspect this won't crosspost to LJ correctly, but we shall see! ETA: As I suspected, crossposting doesn't play nicely with polls on LJ, so either come play on DW or sound off in the comments!

Heading south after stopping for the night in Crewe, we decided to deviate from our course towards Cornwall and Devon. The detour? Stonehenge - because we both have it on the list of places we'd like to actually see for real.

So, Saturday morning we set out and we hit it in the middle of heat of the day - early afternoon. Waiting in line was a killer - sweat dripping and nothing to block off the sun. Well worth it though ;) - We took turns to leave the queue for the tickets to stand in the shade and breeze at the building. Included in the ticket is thankfully a short bus trip up to Stonehenge itself. And oddly enough, because they don't allow people too close, due to the layout, I managed to get pictures without people in it.

So it's all above board, unless you ask anyone else in the facility. They might have a different view on things.
