Seven years ago I made my Ships of the Noughties list. Recently it was suggested to me by [livejournal.com profile] dustinw5220 that I make a similar list for the nineties. I decided to expand on that a bit to include a whole century rather than just a decade because why not? As usual I found it difficult to decide which ships to include, so before we reach the main event I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge some of my favourite couples who didn't quite make the cut:

Honourable Mentions )

I've also decided not to double up, so Mulder/Scully, Xena/Gabrielle, Tom/B'Elanna, Harm/Mac, Willow/Tara, Piper/Leo, John/Aeryn, and Charlie/Zoey are not featured in this list because I already included them in my Ships of the Noughties.

And now, without further ado, I present to you...

Twentieth Century Ships )

There you go. I hope you enjoyed my Twentieth Century Ships and please feel free to leave a comment letting me know what you think!

I have decided to take up coin collecting. For years I've been throwing interesting coins in a pot, but with the imminent demise of the round £1 coin I realised I wanted a way to keep track of what I've got. So I went online and, after struggling a lot more than I thought I would to find what I wanted, bought a coin album. It has spaces for all the UK decimal coins from 1971 to 2017, with handy pictures so I can see what I'm missing.

I'm a bit disappointed that it doesn't have pages for coins of Crown Dependencies or British Overseas Territories though, so I have nowhere to put the neat looking coins I have from Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man. But it is a ring binder, so I can always try and make my own pages for them and put them in myself.

This weekend I'm going to go through the money I have in my house to see what coins I can find and how much of the album I can fill. I'm hoping to be able to collect all the current £1 coins before they go out of circulation in October, but I know that's a bit ambitious. I may have to start using cash to pay for things more often.

Also this weekend I'm planning to make banana bread and possibly start writing a list of my ships because it has been suggested that, following my Ships of the Noughties list, I make similar lists for the 90s or this decade. Rather than just limit it to the 90s I've been thinking that I could do a Ships of the Twentieth Century list. And technically I suppose I should leave this decade for another three years cos it's not over yet and who knows what new and wonderful ships might come along, but I'll probably do one anyway!

Also, Buffy icon cos it's 20 years since Buffy first aired in America and wow I feel old!

I have to say, based on the adverts and all the build-up, I expected Downton Abbey to have been a bit more wrapped up last night than it turned out to be. I suppose Mary getting married was something, even if it did happen ridiculously quickly, but all their declarations of love fell a bit flat cos Henry's left no impression on me whatsoever and it felt like their wedding came out of nowhere. I know their romance has supposedly been building all season, but it hasn't felt like it. (In fact this is the first time all year I've actually remembered his name, which says a lot about how invested I've been in this storyline!)

At least they finally acknowledged that Mary might have some issues being married to a man who races cars when her first husband died in a car crash. Of course this only merited a short scene and then it was all forgotten again, but still. That's probably the best you can hope for with Downton now.

And I still think Bertie's going to go back to Edith. That's going to happen in the Christmas special. It has to.

Anyway, onto the November meme. Topic 5 is Favourite Romantic Pairing:

Now, I know I've been saying that pretty much every single topic so far is a tricky one, but this is definitely the hardest yet. Shipping is such a huge part of my fandom life and, as with TV shows, I usually go through stages of being super obsessed with a ship for a while before finding a new one and becoming super obsessed with that, but just because my super-obsession has moved on doesn't mean that I don't still love the old pairings or ship them any less. So rather than trying to pick one, I'm going to go with a top ten eleven in no particular order:

1. Eleven/River (Doctor Who)
2. Roslin/Adama (BSG)
3. Sydney/Vaughn (Alias)
4. Willow/Tara (Buffy)
5. Michael/Sara (Prison Break)
6. Chuck/Sarah (Chuck)
7. Xena/Gabrielle (Xena)
8. Castle/Beckett (Castle)
9. Max/Logan (Dark Angel)
10. Mulder/Scully (The X Files)
11. Brennan/Booth (Bones)

Even this was difficult and I keep thinking of other pairings that I could have put on the list. I may have a bit of a shipping problem...

I've finally caught up with the latest episodes of Merlin and now I has a sad.

They better fix this. *shakes fist*

My Doctor Who Blu-Rays arrived today and I have now seen the mini-episodes! I laughed! I cried! I wished I had a friend who loves Doctor Who as much as I do to flail with! I'd probably have a hard time articulating anything beyond dfhjkdhfdskjfh though...

Day 10

I'm pretty sure it's not healthy for me to love Doctor Who this much.
