Sudden Inspiration And An Overwhelming Urge

Dear all,

I think I'll start posts like this from now, except of course for the reviews. Anyway, hi, as the title of this post suggests, I was suddenly inspired to do something, and now have this overwhelming urge to finish what I started.

Ok, so for the past few months, I've been playing a lot of games League of Legends (awesome game by the way), Nancy Drew PC games (by Her Interactive) and other random games. But I have been most inspired by Nancy. How many of you readers have ever read the book, I remember I used to collect her books, they were amazing, I always had aspired to be somewhat like Nancy.

I am digressing, where was I, oh yes, well. I was inspired by the Nancy Drew games so much, that I have decided to write a script based on one of her adventures, in the games. Of course, it won't be exactly the same, because, that would be plagiarism, so I'm writing it using completely different characters, and using a different setting. Hopefully it won't be too similar.

So the purpose of this post is to warn you about the lack of any in the future, I will be a bit busy writing this script and playing games, as well as finding a job, going to uni, and rejoining the youth team (hopefully) but when I can, I will, and I'll probably have lots to say.

So for now, it's good bye, and enjoy the older posts here. And as always, please comment to let me know I'm doing a good job, or if you have any criticisms. But peace out, and God Bless. ^^

A Revelation From Doctor Who

I have just recently watched a panel for the Doctor Who cast and crew, about the 50th anniversary, and I really love this quote "Heroes are important. Heroes tell us something about ourselves. History books tell us who we used to be, documentaries tell us who we are now but heroes tell us who we want to be."

Not only that but I think Moffat was right when he says, "Heroes depress me, but with this particular hero, they didn't give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn't give him a tank or a warship or an X-wing fighter, they gave him a call box, from which you can call for help. And they didn't give him a superpower, or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart."

So I thought I'd share this with everyone because, from Doctor Who, I learned that everyone needs a hero, although sometimes the heroes we want aren't the heroes we need, and truth be told, the Doctor, is my hero. Not because he has companions who I wish I were (even though I do), but because as Steven Moffat implies, he's a hero who wants to save, not to fight.

Think about it, the tenth doctor, played by David Tennant, offers his enemies a home to live in, he gives them the choice to live peacefully, for example in the Christmas Special The Next Doctor, as the cyber-men try to take over Victorian London, he offers them to find a planet, one where they can live their "mechanical lives in peace", or the eleventh doctor, played by Matt Smith, offers the Rosanna and her family to find a new home for them, so as not to destroy Earth, or even in the 50th anniversary special, even though there were three, and each one was seriously thinking of destroying Gallifrey, he still finds a way to save his home planet.

It is because of his love of life that I see him as my hero, he doesn't care about who he saves, even if it's his enemies, he still wants to save them, even though it means they end up dying. So, that's why I love Doctor Who, and I hope for those of you out there, who don't really care for it, who think it's just another boring TV show that only nerds and geeks watch, this is the reason we watch it. It's because the Doctor teaches us that even though we "are still learning to walk" we have so much potential, we have a lot to learn about ourselves and we all have the capability to be great.

I'm not trying to persuade you to watch it, I know it may not be your thing, but if you do ever encounter someone who does love it, don't put them down, don't make them feel inferior, just because they watch a sci-fi drama, understand that they watch it because it gives them hope, hope of a future that they may yet have, hope that they can be as great as the doctor, or his companions. And for those of you who have seen it and love it as much as I do, I recommend watching this panel (the link below), I guarantee you, it will teach you a lot about the doctor, it's where I found my two quotes. Finally for those of you who do want to watch it, but have not yet seen it, I do recommend it, it's character, as a show is what makes it great, and if you do, welcome to the family.

So I leave you with this poster for the 50th Anniversary special. And as always do with this post what you will, may God Bless you. ^^
