I very nearly met the challenge theme for this week. And then I totally didn't.

I think someone asked me to do this back when The Girl Who Never Was came out -- which was last December, so I'm frighteningly delinquent.

Side note: I've now heard two separate interviews -- one with Colin Baker, one with Paul McGann -- where they complained that Eccleston's costume was the one they wished they could have had. So I've now set these two up as eternal rivals in my head. I didn't mean to, but as they say on fandomsecrets, 'I can't unsee it.'

Ooh! Eight and Charley get much too little love. :)

It was a little scary to look through the tags and realise that of all the Charley pictures here, only one isn't mine. O_O I do so love the girl. (Even though whenever I draw her now, a friend of mine goes off on Masterchef tangents.)

I'm glad you mentioned the tags, because I found several other drawings that made me happy. Ms. Pollard can never get enough love. *nods firmly*

*laughs* Everyone wants a piece of Charley!

Two Time Lords can't be wrong!

(Okay, well, one, but ...)

Bah, the Doctor should count for at least two Time Lords b/c he is just THAT awesome!!

Whenever I listen an audio w/ Charley, I always think of Candy Mountain. "Let's go to Candy Mountain, Charlie!"

Ponce!!!!!!You made my day!
19th-Sep-2008 12:24 am (UTC)
I just couldn't help myself. :3
19th-Sep-2008 01:19 am (UTC)
That is adorable and hilarious, I love it.
21st-Sep-2008 02:05 pm (UTC)
Why thank you!

Re: your icon, someone told me that Doctors five apart would get on best (like 5 and 10, 2 and 7, etc.). Does that mean maybe 3 and 8 wouldn't devolve into this sort of childish bickering were they to meet up? ^.~
21st-Sep-2008 02:35 pm (UTC)
Well I certainly think they could go shopping together and get along famously :P

21st-Sep-2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
... so ... much ... velvet ... o_O ...
21st-Sep-2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
I like to imagine them meeting up at the same specialty dry-cleaners from time to time
19th-Sep-2008 08:03 am (UTC)
*laughs until coughing fit becomes quite painful* Damn cold... It was worth it, though :oD I've been relistening to a lot of Eight&Charley stories lately, and the two Six&Charley ones as well, so it made me laugh a whole lot more than it might have a month ago :o)
21st-Sep-2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I wish I could remember who requested 6/8 fighting over Charley ... but at the time, I just couldn't see it in my head. But once I finished listening to The Doomwood Curse, it sort of all clicked.

Actually, truth be told, it double-clicked when I heard McGann complaining about how he wanted Eccleston's costume literally a day after a friend told me about Baker years ago saying he wished he'd had a 'slimming black costume.' Then I just visualised the two of them fighting over that leather jacket, and since they were already fighting in my head ... X3

they complained that Eccleston's costume was the one they wished they could have had. So I've now set these two up as eternal rivals in my head.

That's a FANTASTIC notion! XD Intra-Doctor bickering is never not funny, especially when they start insulting each other's dress sense. :)
21st-Sep-2008 02:03 pm (UTC)
I've always loved the irrational hatred that springs up between different regenerations depending on the situation. Actually fighting over something makes it that much better. XD
19th-Sep-2008 03:27 pm (UTC)
Ooh! I love this beyond all reason.
19th-Sep-2008 03:28 pm (UTC)
And because I can't decide who I like better with Charley, I must give equal access to both icons...
21st-Sep-2008 01:58 pm (UTC)
And I love both your icons! Yeah, I was a little iffy about her switching off at first, but I love the chemistry she has with 6. Very different from her relationship with 8. It's interesting to see hear her figuring out how different they are, and at the same time working out that it is the same guy when you get right down to it.

Oof, if I were a companion I could never switch Doctors. I'd get so confused. ^^;;;
21st-Sep-2008 02:12 pm (UTC)
She and McGann were wonderful together, but there's also some terrific chemistry with Colin. I've got two fanfics started exploring that chemistry, but alas I seem to have motivational problems finishing them. Your terrific drawing did inspire me to get back to one of them, however, so thanks for that!
21st-Sep-2008 02:13 pm (UTC)
Glad to be of help! Please let me know when it's finished and readable (if you are so inclined).
20th-Sep-2008 11:20 pm (UTC)
LOL! That's adorable!
21st-Sep-2008 02:05 pm (UTC)
6 and 8 really are such children. Just ... in different ways. ^.~
21st-Sep-2008 01:42 pm (UTC)
and i always thought the even numbers got on with each other.. :p
typically neither one asks Charley what she wants :D
21st-Sep-2008 01:54 pm (UTC)
I guess when awesome leather jackets cute companions are on the line, all bets are off. :3 I love that Colin Baker really does seem rather thrilled about having India Fisher in his 'stable of fillies' (his words, I swear).

Also, love that icon.
21st-Sep-2008 01:59 pm (UTC)
Oh yes i know those words well :) and lets face it, who wouldnt want India in their harem circle.

and danke - Dimensions in Time is a goldmine for icons :)

To paraphrase a certain series of British Public Information Films (PSA's), Charley says "Can somebody help me out of this mess...?".
