Question meme and Daleks oh my! XD @ 10:45 pm

Current Mood: contemplative contemplative

Pick a date in December and give me something to talk about. Give me a question or topic-- absolutely anything goes - whatever strikes your fancy, and nothing is taboo or TMI, or any of that nonsense. If you're not comfortable asking here, go ahead and PM me.

So far I've got:

Feel free to chime in on any more questions to fill up the month! =D

Today's question!

Dec 2. Who's your favorite author and what's your favorite book by them?

I'd probably have to say Stephen King since I've read so much of his stuff and enjoyed most of what I've read in the manner he executes his ideas. My favorite book by him... that's tough, but I would probably have to sat The Drawing of the Three from the Dark Tower series. I really like Rolland and his adventures bringing his companions into his world and getting more info about Jake etc. Just a lot of fun over all. I'm ashamed I still have yet to finish the series.... 3 more books after Wizard and Glass and then that epilogue if I remember correctly?



So, I just was visiting at [profile] katje0711's site where she hosted my question: What would you think of DW having a Dalek as a companion? (Of course one that actually had emotions not inhibited.

Her answer was:
Does Oswin count? If not, then I'm not sure so I could ever imagine the Doctor with a Dalek as a companion. After all, they seem to be only capable of focusing on destroying him. Even if there was one that appeared to be good, I'm not sure the Doctor could ever overlook how many have been out to kill him. And look what happened in Into the Dalek. I Just don't think it would ever happen.

Now I adore the Daleks, and I'm not really sure why, but they wormed their way into my heart the very first time I saw them (where Christopher Eccleston was DW) and Rose touched the Dalek infecting it with her 'humanity' I was moved by this, and from that point, I have always had a soft spot for them which of course led to many doodles...

This was my first of a Dalek pranking the Doctor XD



Of course I went on a spree...

Daleks playing hide and seek... hey! No peeking you! LOL! XD



A lounging Dalek (which Scott actually saw someone else made something similar and was selling it at Dragoncon... great minds and all that eh?)

I was thinking Aladdin's "A whole New World" here :P

Dalek lovebirds ;)


And of course, my favorite: This I named a Dalek dares to dream thinking of that very first episode where I imagined a Dalek staring into the sky and contemplating the universe



What do you guys think? (Saying you watch Doctor Who) Do you think an emotionally uninhibited Dalek could ever be a companion to the Doctor?

Yay for your fave book of King's being one of the DT series! Now go finish reading it! I'm not sure what epilogue book you mean. Do you mean The Wind Through the Keyhole?

Cute Daleks! I really love the last one. Nicely done. By the way, it's Police Public Call Box on the TARDIS. ;)

Yes, that's the book I was thinking of ;)

Thanks! Drawing these little guys brought me a lot of joy in their super silliness! LOL! XD

Ah, I misread that...

I do love the final Dalek doodle. Reminds me of the Watcher in Arthur C Clarke's novella of the same name which was the basis for 2001 A Space Odyssey.

Thank you! I was trying hard to think of something original for posing for the Dalek when I finally came up with that one.

Oh gods, I couldn't get through 2001 A Space Odyssey!

I love Stephen King type books. Also, check out John Saul. He also writes lots of suspenseful creepy ones. :)

John Saul, he sounds familiar, but can't put a finger on from where. I'll have to google him later.

I like Stephen King's short stories, but his novels tend to be so bloody long-winded I seldom finish them.

OK, another question, for December 16: what is one kinky activity that you fantasize about, but would never want to carry over to reality?

I kind of like his long winded'ness' LOL! It's how he delves into a moment that always captured me.

Oh there is a lot I'd leave to fantasy, I can be mean :P But I'll go more in depth on the 16th ;)

Another one of my friends said that their favorite author was Steven King. I haven't read enough of his to have much of an opinion - Firestarter, Nightmares & Dreamscapes, and The Talisman (which he co-wrote with Peter Straub).

I haven't watched Dr. Who yet (though I DO plan to at some point - at least the season with the 10th doc, because he's cute) so I don't have an answer to the question, but I do think the drawings are cute. :)

I was a big fan of David Tennant as the Doctor as well, he is my fave of all the Doctors ;) I think when you do get around to watching it, you will like it. Didn't I send you copies of it a long time ago? I think I remember you saying Ron enjoyed them :)

I liked Firestarter, but haven't read the other two yet... he's so prolific, it's hard to keep up with everything he's written honestly oO

I adore Stephen King and have often said I would read the man's grocery list. LOL My favorite of his books remains The Stand, though I love The Dark Tower novels as well.

Dark Tower! Oy, it'll be forever until I get to that series...

As for Dalek companion, they'd probably have to do a 7 of 9 thing where she used to be a Dalek but now has a more human form.

I still haven't finished it, so I totally know what you mean! :P

I never thought of that, but it could be very neat! Maybe a Last Unicorn scenario where being in a human body was rubbing off on the Dalek? That could be so awesome! =D
