awkward when i make my sister’s friend watch ‘blink’ and she turns all the angels in my room around and i’ve just now noticed
Couldn’t fall asleep last night so I played a little bit of the Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time app on my phone.
So, yeah, that didn’t help the insomnia much.
My newest Articulated Paper Dolls. Sweet dreams!
I’ll probably rewatch other scary episodes such as…
- The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances
- Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead
Let the fun begin.
I got home yesterday after being on vacation with a friend. I went to go drop off my bag in my room and found her waiting for me on my dresser. I screamed and covered my eyes, yelling “WEEPING ANGEL!”. I heard my dad and sisters all start to laugh from the kitchen. Turns out they picked her up because they saw her in a garbage bin because they knew it would freak me out. I put her outside but they keep moving it around. She’s now outside my door in the hall, like the picture. Someone call The Doctor!
*edit* Yeah, I forgot to add the bit in about the eye covering. It was my first instinct, which was clearly wrong. I make sure to stare at her now, though. No worries.
Day 13: What is your favorite/scariest Moffatism?
That which holds the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel.
I’ve always had weird feelings about pictures. As a child, I often thought that pictures were watching me. I thought that somehow the people in the pictures could see me.
I’ve always loved the creepy myths and superstitions that revolve around cameras and images. Then, of course, fiction and pop culture have done so many strange and wonderful things with these myths and superstitions. For instance, my favorite Goosebumps book was about children who got trapped in a black and white world by an evil photographer.
Then there’s Harold and the Purple Crayon, which presents an incredibly appealing idea of being able to call anything you want into existence by drawing it. I’m sure there are few people who’d not want the ability to create and clone things through images. However, that’s really the last thing you want to do with a Weeping Angel.
The idea that something so dangerous could replicate itself through an image and sheer will scares the hell out of me, especially since my TV sees a lot of horror movie action.
I didn’t find the Weeping Angels incredibly scary in “Blink.” I thought it was a scary concept and applauded it, but it didn’t make my heart race if I thought about it while walking through a dark room. But I’ll be honest, coming home to a dark house at 4 am on the day “The Time of Angels” aired was a tense moment. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel some irrational fear that I’d open my bedroom door and find an angel crawling out of my laptop.
And really, let’s just not go into the part where there was an angel IN AMY’S EYES and ready to pop out of her head, killing her in the process.
