Today’s my “birthday”, or at least the one I celebrate publicly; the day I had my surgery some years ago. I call it “Muffing Day”.
So, my partner (who arrived today) got me a Muffing Day present, and I love it SO MUCH. We both really love work by Megan Lara, who does a whole bunch of fan art stuff that’s top-notch, as well as her own art (she’s talented and sells relatively inexpensively! buy lots!). Today’s gift was of my favourite of the New Who companions, Martha: The Doctor’s Doctor. She’s brilliant, gorgeous, leaves on her own terms, doesn’t pine after him when he’s gone from her life, and she’s a real DOCTOR. How bad-ass is that? The references in the background are of various shows: Smith & Jones with hospital on the moon/Judoon platoon, Cybermen from when Freema played Martha’s “cousin” in S2’s Rise of the Cybermen / Age of Steel season-ender, the pocketwatch from Human Nature / Family of Blood with Ten’s distinctive sonic behind it and, in her hand, the Osterhagen Key from S4’s The Stolen Planet / Journey’s End.
I has squeeful on my shirt. Yay! Happy Muffing Day!
