  • Monday morning: the new Doctor Who companions are announced; I am moderately excited. 
  • Monday night: Discovery Night, aka the only thing that makes Mondays worthwhile, aka I Accidentally Fell In Love With Admiral Kat Cornwell And Now The Show Mocks Me, aka How Does Jason Isaacs Manage To Be So Interesting When He Really Shouldn't Be?
  • Tuesday morning: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is announced for Melbourne in 2019.
I've had four really big fandoms in my life. Three are currently active, and I'm really not sure I have enough room in my body to contain this much enthusiasm. If anything major happens in Avatar fandom this week, I might actually explode. 

(I quickly double-checked, just in case, but no Turf Wars previews have appeared while I was distracted.)

This'll be a strange week for me. On Friday afternoon my Arabic teacher had some news bad enough that she's canceled her classes for this week. Sad to hear as she's lovely.

Then last night my lecturer for the Monday lecture said UCU voted for a strike today.

While I have no problem supporting the strike, I'm really sad to miss a lecture for this class (Language Mind and Brain; the one I've enthused about (sometimes drunkenly...) whenever anyone's asked me how my course is going)!

And I'm sad for whatever has happened to my lovely Arabic teacher, but I'm relieved because three hours of language-learning all in a row is brutal, makes Wednesdays by far my longest day in uni, and this week I'd have had a meeting partway through so I'd have worried about what I was missing after I had to leave.

But with no Arabic and no lecture, I'm left with only one lecture and two seminars all week! And next week is Reading Week (a concept my American brain is still struggling to understand). I feel kind of grateful for this chance to catch my metaphorical breath: I've been doing okay (if not perfectly) at keeping on top of uni things, but I'm way behind on housework, spending any quality time with my partners, etc.

I do have an essay due this Friday and one next Friday, and Arabic teacher has said she might try to make up this week's lessons during Reading Week too, so it's not as if I have nothing to do. But it does feel like a very light week for me, and solemn though the reasons for that are, I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm kind of glad.

Title: Finding Forward
Pairing: Thirteenth Doctor/Missy
Rating: PG-13
Summary: "Forging blindly ahead is a well-honed strategy of mine," the Doctor admitted wryly. "I can do that any day. Now, forward? That's proven a bit more difficult, you see."
