So...  
Has everyone stopped shipping it? *sad panda*

I still ship it!

I miss its heyday :/
wake_the_dragon on December 19th, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
Me too. But as long as there are still some shippers, Doctor/Romana won't die out.

I have realised the error of my ways.
The Slightly Silly Candidateakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 12:00 am (UTC)
Which error?
teh nos': dw - four/romana xmas kissinnostalgia_lj on December 20th, 2011 12:01 am (UTC)
The error of shipping Doctor/Romana. I have been a bad person and I hope everyone can forgive me.
The Slightly Silly Candidate: four/romana iakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 12:02 am (UTC)
Not sure if serious or not...
Nathan: Doctor/Romana summermelengro on December 20th, 2011 12:41 am (UTC)
I certainly still ship it.

Sadly, I also ship myself/getting a good GPA and generating coherent thoughts on Japanese literature.

And now I want to write something with Four and Romana I in the Genpei Wars. I have no idea how that would even work but the concept excites me to no end.
lizbeelizbee on December 20th, 2011 01:51 am (UTC)
I ship you and those things as well, but I'm hoping that if I ever write the Ursa-and-Ozai-are-a-fobwatched-Doctor-and-Master fic, you'll be around to provide me with at least one reader!

(Seriously, HOW MUCH does that explain their kids?)
Nathan: Azula smirkmelengro on December 20th, 2011 02:03 am (UTC)
You will have a MORE THAN enthusiastic reader if that, in fact, ends up written. Which it should.

(SO MUCH)
lizbeelizbee on December 20th, 2011 02:30 am (UTC)
IT WOULD BE EPIC. Though mostly in my mind it involves Ursa!Doctor turning up on Amy's doorstep going, "Okay, you guys were reunited with your daughter and found she was a sociopathic killer! How did you deal with that? I mean, usually I just give traumatized teenagers access to weapons and Daleks, but I'm really trying to discourage her from blowing things up."

While Azula sulks in the corner and mutters darkly about peasants.
Nathan: Revolt obey compromise deceivemelengro on December 20th, 2011 03:28 am (UTC)
THAT IS SO AMAZING.

And now I want to see some kind of interaction between Azula and Ace. ANY kind of interaction between Azula and Ace.
lizbeelizbee on December 20th, 2011 06:05 pm (UTC)
I think that's what we in the business call "mutually assured destruction"!
Nathan: Romana: Oh for God's sakemelengro on December 20th, 2011 09:34 pm (UTC)
All I know is it needs to happen.
The Slightly Silly Candidateakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 11:04 am (UTC)
Well, I'm also concentrating on getting my MA.
lizbeelizbee on December 20th, 2011 01:32 am (UTC)
I'm just not as passionate about DW as I was in years past. Which is ironic, since I'm also happier with the state of canon than at any previous time since the new series started, but there you go. I still ship it, but it's not as all-consuming as before.
Nathan: Tea is good.melengro on December 20th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
First I found that it was easier for me to generate really active rage and counter-canonical (as perceived by RTD) opinions than really active mostly-contentedness with the canon. Then I realised that this said some not-entirely-ideal things about my personality and by the time I was more able to be really actively and vocally happy about things my passion had become both more esoteric and more, shall we say, Pacific than (or rather, as well as) Atlantic.
lizbeelizbee on December 20th, 2011 02:31 am (UTC)
Yes, all of that!

And to be honest, DW fandom is so negative at the moment that it's really not much fun even talking about the things I love.
The Slightly Silly Candidate: four/romana - readingakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 11:08 am (UTC)
I'm not exactly peach-happy with Moffat, either, so maybe that's my thing?
Nathan: Guide to Hellmelengro on December 20th, 2011 09:33 pm (UTC)
I'm not any more either, but I was for a while and I think maybe that's what was going on there.
The Slightly Silly Candidateakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 09:39 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad I'm not the only one! *tackles*
Nathan: Triad for the end of timemelengro on December 20th, 2011 10:05 pm (UTC)
It's still, I think, considerably better than how it was under RTD, but I've been questioning some of the decisions relating to the second half of season 32 especially for a while now.

Can I PM you with what I was really unhappy about? I don't want to get flamed or anything or derail this post.
Nathan: Doctor/Romana summermelengro on December 21st, 2011 01:05 am (UTC)
Of course. (I get the sense that it's likely to be different but similar to what I was unhappy about, so I'd be interested to see.)
The Slightly Silly Candidateakashasheiress on January 16th, 2012 10:06 pm (UTC)
Done, sorry about the delay! also there should be an eleven/romana tag
pbristow on December 20th, 2011 11:01 am (UTC)
I may have a video that will help cheer panda up, if I ever get around to finishing it...
The Slightly Silly Candidate: eleven/romanaakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 11:12 am (UTC)
Panda would me most pleased :)

Love your icon!
The Slightly Silly Candidate: eleven/romanaakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 10:15 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I found it sort of randomly.

VERY VERY BELATEDLY:

Some thunks that I'm having in weighing up what should go where in the (proposed/purported/imagined/"get -yourself-frozen-like-Walt-Disney-and-eventually-they-might-wake-you-up-to-let-you-watch-it-(and-then-kill-you-'cos-food's-too-scarce)" video:

1. The rock is K9. He is simple, solid, reliable above all others. When all around is chaos, he is simplicity and truth.

2. The paper is either Braxiatel or Narvin.
Paper is tricky and strangely variable stuff. It can offer bland, formal declaration; smooth comfort; or sharp and unexpected cuts. It is a trinity unto itself.

3. The scissors are Leela. She cuts to the chase, to the heart of the matter.
  - Her symbol is the knife, which when doubled by the wisdom of the artificer/engineer, and the applied force of the commanding hand, becomes scissors.

I definitely still ship it!!! When I find stories to read they make me so happy! Unfortunately I'm not much of a writer so can't add much :(
The Slightly Silly Candidateakashasheiress on December 20th, 2011 10:16 pm (UTC)
Well, I still haven't finished my story for the Eleven/Romana ficathon and then there's that Seven/Romana one I keep telling myself to write...
scifi_melscifi_mel on December 22nd, 2011 09:00 am (UTC)
Yay!!! I will be looking forward to reading those! You should write them :)
jjporjjpor on December 23rd, 2011 11:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, forever. ;)

Tbh, I think I ship it even more now than I used to. I'm getting old an obsessive, clearly...
The Slightly Silly Candidate: four/romana iakashasheiress on December 23rd, 2011 11:42 pm (UTC)
We can be old and obsessive together (even though I'm seven years younger than you) :D
jjporjjpor on December 27th, 2011 09:52 pm (UTC)
I don't know, being old and obsessive isn't as good as it looks. ;)
The Slightly Silly Candidate: four/romana - readingakashasheiress on December 27th, 2011 11:54 pm (UTC)
I've been young and obsessive forever. Surely, being old and obsessive isn't that much different?

jjpor: Four/Romana!!!jjpor on December 28th, 2011 10:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but you're also then old. ;)
The Slightly Silly Candidateakashasheiress on December 28th, 2011 11:14 pm (UTC)
It's just a number! Well, it isn't, but you know what I mean.
