do darkness really well. Many of us here in fandom like it to some extent: why else would we be watching a show about the last survivor of an otherwise extinct people? We create fics and other fanworks that delve to the depths of the shows' angst potential. However, in these anxious days as we await The End of Time
, I think it's worth remembering how much joy and love exist in this show and this fandom.
With that in mind, I wanted to link to some fics and vids that fill me with happiness every single time. I could call this a rec post, but since I'm not making any effort to stick to lesser-known works I think it might be better called a reminder
post. My goal is less to help you find something new (although you may) than to remind you of how much fun this show and this fandom can be. Some of this stuff is sweet and entirely fluffy, some briefly acknowledges the darkness but moves thoroughly into hope, and some is just zany crack to bring you laughs.
Check out these fics and vids. Smile. If you feel inspired, comment with a link to whatever in Doctor Who
fandom fills you
with joy (or post about it in your own journal). If you aren't feeling like fics or vids, rec something else, like a picspam, fanmix, macro, meta post, or whatever gives you the warm fuzzies and/or the giggles. Share the celebration!( Fics )( Vids )
