woolly_socks: me with red hair, and fishnet sleeves, hand over face (Default)
[personal profile] woolly_socks
About a million years ago I promised [livejournal.com profile] mergatrude I'd do a Simm!Master picspam. I started going through and collecting pics, and it quickly got out of control. And then I forgot all about it.

Fast forward several months, and I've had too much sugar and can't get to sleep. So I finished it off.



What is it about him? Is it the smile? The aftershave? The genocide? The slash potential that gives new meaning to the words 'practically canon'?

The picspam quickly became a two-parter. So here is my favourite psychotic dictator, part one. 18 pics. Some pics are large and will totally ruin your layout. The upside: they make great wallpaper.

Spoilers for Doctor Who season 3.



1.
ZOMG, that cranky old guy is exploding!!

2.
Oh, no he’s not, he’s just becoming young and hot. Good-o. Carry on, cranky old guy.

3.
And there it is. Young. Hot. Nostrils.

4.
Floofy sleeves! Evil glee! (Meanwhile the Doctor is showing us his very best Twisty Face of Doom, but that’s another spam)

5.
Say my name, bitch. *fangirls*

6.

7.

8.

9.
<3<3<3<3<3<3<3 Bye bye, you cute, insane little man.

And while we gnaw on our own limbs (or those of our flatmates if we have a low pain threshold) waiting for next week’s ep, The Master is hard at work building multiple careers, befriending a bunch of sociopathic flying basketballs, and being good to Lucy’s father. Let’s meet Harold Saxon....

10.

11.
From a distance, he looks like your mate Bob down at the local park. But look at that evil gleam in his eyes. He has impure intentions towards that football.

12.
Why is he holding the ball like it’s a bomb/birthday cake?

13.
Hello Dysfunctional Lucy! Don’t they look nice together?

14.
Don't they look evil together?

15.

16.
Raise your hand if you kind of want to read that book? *raises hand*

17.
Harold Saxon, Minister of Defence.

18.

Aaand that's all for now. Tune in next week, when the Doctor says "The Master is Prime Minister of Great Britain!!"

Hurrah picspam! Especially of John Simm the Master!

I think I read a fanfic once where Donna had a copy of Saxon's book and the Doctor found it, and gave her the Twisty Face of Doom.

Speaking of that, I request that picspam too :P ~*the beauty of John Simm compels you*~

Ooooh, that'd be a FUN picspam to do! I will, after I'm done with the Master.

If John Smith counts, he would certainly provide lots of Twisty Faces.

Oooh, he would, wouldn't he?! Now I just have to decide if he counts. He's not the Doctor, but he's a part of the Doctor.

omg, the last one made me go Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I'd forgotten just how...Simm he is. Not typically beautiful by any means, but brimming with charisma. *happy shiver*

Also, in the very top promo shot, what is it that reminds me of middle-period David Bowie? The makeup? The set of his jaw? The suit? I can't tell, but it's putting me in a David Bowie/Iggy Pop frame of mind with the Doctor as one and the Master in the brown leather pants. Or maybe vice versa.

Because GUH.

I may have to rewatch the end of S3 now. (Thank you!)

He is extremely SIMM, isn't he?! By which I mean HOT. I don't usually seem to go for the typically beautiful guys, it's normally the slightly funny-looking ones that just have something about them.

Also, in the very top promo shot, what is it that reminds me of middle-period David Bowie?

I think it's the cheekbones, which are emphasised more than usual by the lighting and makeup, and the set of his mouth.

He looks so unbelievably evil in pic #11, which I find hysterical. Very amusing to see first thing in the...afternoon. I sometimes get a late start on Saturdays.

I know! He looks totally evil! It's hilarious that that's the one where he looks most like a supervillain, the seemingly innocent one with the football!

Hey you, welcome to my humble LJ!

The Master doesn't quite make my list of secret TV boyfriends, but he's at the top of my secret skanky mancandy list. ;-)

Actually no, he's just near the top. The top of that particular list is reserved for Leoben and Peter Petrelli. Please note that actual secret boyfriends tend to be nicer and not so emo.

I FEEL SO WELCOME ALREADY.

well, I have so many lists of secret tv "people" that I can totally relate.
my tv boyfriends are: matt saracen, toby flenderson, and kenneth.
I won't bore you with the other lists, but suffice to say, I want to hug and cuddle my tv boyfriends, but I want to do dirty things to my tv boytoys.
I CAN RELATE.

oh, sexy leoben. mmmmmmmm.
never got the appeal of peter petrelli, myself. I think it's the emo hair, it got me too soon and clouds my judgment.
angela petrelli, on the other hand, I would do. I would do her so well.

I never had much time for Peter Petrelli either, what with the silly floppy hair. But then between seasons he got a haircut, and started spending more time shirtless and soaking wet, and sometimes tied to a chair. See, that got my interest.

My TV boyfriends are
Real people:
1) Callum Keith Rennie
2) David Tennant
3) Aaron Douglas
4) John Simm
5) Hugh Dillon

Fictional characters:
1) Ray Kowalski
2) Tenth Doctor
3) The Chief
4) Xander Harris
5) Special Agent Dale Cooper

The list of the skanky mancandy embarrassingly long.

Despite being pretty much entirely heterosexual I have three secret girlfriends: Starbuck, Pink, and Zoe Bell.

ugh, peter petrelli. he just annoys me. he seems a bit too gary stu for my case, boo.

I don't have real-life tv boyfriends. just tv characters.
but I'm bi, so I have a whole other huge category of tv girlfriends.

and the most important fangirl list, of course, for me, (wow, comma abuse, sorry.) is the one that has my favorite women.
so, my favorite tv women that I would also TOTALLY DO, currently:
laura roslin
irina derevko
angela petrelli
iris crowe

I have a type.
if you've got the older hot female pragmatist with lots of power and VERY GOOD AT WHAT SHE DOES, I am hooked no matter what. NO MATTER WHAT.
it is my fandom kryptonite.

From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
Well, I can certainly see why Laura Roslin turns your crank then! I just adore her, and Mary McDonnell too. But my type for girls appears to be young, sassy, and tough but not quite butch.

With the guys, I'm a sucker for geeks. Usually tall and skinny with glasses, but not exclusively. My kryptonite is a smart, funny, dorky, sweet geek in glasses and a hoodie.

the only character on bsg that hits my kinks harder is billy. I love billy more than any other character in anything ever.

oh, I'm a sucker for the manipulative ones.
so badly.
and I don't like blondes, unless they're boys and they're sweet.

I tend to like manipulative boys, too, but they have to be extra-smart and bonus points for being tall and skinny with tempers. (except snape. could never really get into him...)

Awwww, Billy-love! That's lovely. I haven't met many fans who like him much. I think he's adorable, and pretty cute too. I have issues with the hair.

hey, don't disrespect the billyfro!
(besides, it got a lot better after the miniseries!
and he's so fucking cute!)
and competent.

I didn't deal well with him being killed off. so I wrote an 18000 word fic where he's actually a cylon. I'm actually super-proud of it. I worked for months on that motherfucker.

manipulative more than does it for me. also, so does somebody being REALLY good at what they do.

Was it you who said a while back that Billy should totally be the final Cylon? Or was that Fry?

Competence kink! That's pretty common as far as I can tell. I have to agree, it is not entirely unattractive.

oh, I've been saying that FOREVER.
fry says it too.
actually, pretty much everybody that I friend eventually gets indoctrinated to it.
I can list the reasons why it would be BETTER THAN AWESOME and actually better, plotwise than any of the big four. there are a lot of them.

competance kink! it's common because it's a good one. I'm tired of characters inexplicably becoming stupid because the plot requires it.
billy doesn't get stupid, not ever, except for the part where jumped in front of the bullets, but that was HONORABLE AND HIS HEART HAD JUST BEEN BROKEN.

AWWWWWWWW.

when billy died, I locked myself in my room for three days and didn't eat and didn't sleep and didn't talk to anyone, except to cry.
I was inconsolable.

he was just, just too sweet to live in that world, you know? he was the only one there that was actually honestly purely good, but that didn't diminish his power at all. he was the shining ray of light and all that.
he was beautiful.

I mean, HE was the one that took care of roslin when she had the first cancer, and he was the one that ran the government while she was sick. he was the one, in the beginning of sacrifice that GLARED at bill adama, even though he has no military training whatsoever. and he loved dee, and he gave her his debate team ring! and when she dumped his ass, he didn't whine or cry or curl up in a corner and die, he sacrificed himself for the guy that his girlfriend left him for.
he was just too perfect.
I guess that's how I console myself.

Wow, I have never had a reaction that strong to a fictional character's death! The closest I can remember is when I was 8 and I saw E.T., but he didn't even die, he just went home! I was pretty inconsolable after that.

I was irrationally attached to billy, I make STRONG attachments with fictional characters, and it hit me at a really rough time.

it's just.
there's no real fairness in the world when the billy dies for no reason, you know?

and I'm sure it doesn't help that if I were anybody on the galactica, I would be the billy. I mean, I'm not a good captain, but I'm a kickass first mate.
and oh, billy was so sweet. and he didn't deserve it.

I didn't have a strong reaction to et that I can remember, but I remember getting really upset by the little mermaid. ursula got big enough that a SHIP could fit in her MOUTH?!
but the worst part was when king triton yelled at ariel. I don't deal well with that junk.
I'm actually really sensitive and emotional when I think about it.

Nope, Billy's death was not fair at all.

Have you done any of the 'what character are you on BSG' quizes? I've done a few. I used to always get Lee. :-P Which I could kind of understand, I mean I have the whole 'ZOMG must do The Right Thing at all costs' thing going on, but I like to think I don't take myself anywhere near that seriously. and I'd be crap in the military, even without the CFS. Crap, I tell you! Anyway last one I did I got Boomer. Which was... disappointing.

My favourite character is definitely Tyrol, but I never get him cos I suck at fixing stuff. And leadership.

I get roslin, practically always.
which is good, because I love roslin.
billy isn't quite common enough to make it on those quizzes.
I have gotten cally, too. and I understand that, 'cause if a bitch tries to rape me, I'll bit his frakking ear off. and anything else I can get my mouth on, if I have to.

you don't seem like a lee to me. not nearly emo enough.

I never liked boomer, but I like her more now that she's crazy. and I really really dislike athena. I call her shagathon, and I don't like her.
hera was better off with president roslin, that's what I say.

I like the chief. he's warm and fuzzy in the best way. the strong way. he's honestly good.
not purely good like billy, but solidly, honestly good. good character.

billy's death was apparently because paul campbell wouldn't sign a 5 year contract. but his imdb page says he'd be willing to come back as a cylon, so I'm irrationally excited about that.
I'll be wicked pissed if they don't bring him back as the final cylon, although knowing rdm, he wouldn't think that billy was "groundbreaking" enough and will make it big adama just for shock value or something.

Why thank you. I like to think that too! I'm pretty sure I got him because of my almost pathological sense of right and wrong (don't be scared, I'm a big time bleeding heart liberal), and loyalty. The most important thing to me is doing the right thing by people.

Shagathon! Hee! I love it.

I like the chief. he's warm and fuzzy in the best way. the strong way. he's honestly good.

I adore the Chief. ADORE him. It all started on Kobol, when he was being awesome and Crashdown was not.

One of the highlights of last year for me (aside from Bean's birth) was meeting Aaron Douglas (http://pics.livejournal.com/woolly_socks/pic/0006tsks). That's me, thinking "Holy frak, Aaron Douglas has his arm around me!" He said he liked my t-shirt. *squeee*

although knowing rdm, he wouldn't think that billy was "groundbreaking" enough and will make it big adama just for shock value or something.

Oh dear. RDM is a twat sometimes. Like when he was asked why there weren't gay characters on BSG (pre-Helena Cain) and he said they hadn't come up with a good enough storyline. It annoyed me - you don't need a storyline! You're trying to reflect life, (in a way. According to RDM they are anyway) and in life, gay characters don't always have a great storyline either! They're just gay.

oh, I can understand the urge for the "right and wrong"
lee just kind of fails at it, especially post-s1.

I love the name shagathon too. so much better than athena.

I've liked the chief since the mini. he's got a good face.
but he was better than kickass on kobol.
competence kink ftw!

HOLY AWESOME YOU MET AARON DOUGLAS.
and he complimented your t-shirt?
HE WEARS AWESOME T-SHIRTS EVERYWHERE.
that's wicked rad.
that's like having mary mcdonnell compliment you on your legs or something.

rdm can be wicked awful sometimes.
thinking about him too hard gets me seriously annoyed.
would it have been so hard to give gaeta a boyfriend? or jammer? or somebody? and then not have it end in serious betrayal and rape and shooting?
or to give simon a personality?
aargh. have to stop thinking now.

am going to bed. talk with you later!
(this was super wicked awesome fun!)

I know, right. I KNOW. It was an extremely squeeful day, that I raved about at length here (http://woolly-socks.livejournal.com/106118.html). I just couldn't believe he came all the way down here for our little hick town con! When I heard he was coming I just about died. My FAVOURITE actor from the show. Mary McDonnell is a pretty close second, I don't even know if I'd manage to say real words to someone of her Divine Awesomeness.

Zachary Quinto is coming to the same con this year. Fuckin SYLAR!

It has been a lot of fun having about five different conversations with you today! I need to go to bed now too.
