Or just the end of Gallifrey One: Catch 22: Islands of Mystery. Which is seriously depressing. I wish every day could be a day at Gallifrey. I liked being able to let my hair down and get a little crazy and have a lot of fun. More fun than should legally be allowed for a human being. But unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

Today was the last day of fun and started out with coffee (dur) and dressing up as a Sorority Girl (Christina as a sorority girl, actually). We got together in a group and were the SororitySisters of Rassilon. It was 9 a.m. and I wasn’t sure I was into it, but once the Daleks came out and cosplayed with us, it was beyond awesome. You have not lived until you’ve heard a Dalek say “This is totally awesome!” and then insult someone’s choice of attire. We inducted said Dalek into the sorority, after all was said and done and eventually photos will be posted (someone else has those, but is supposed to post them to the cosplay group on LiveJournal). The Dalek also offered us tea (it was Ironside from the “Victory of the Daleks” episode). There was also another Dalek (this one remote-controlled while the other had a person inside) that took a verbal abusing from Ironside for being “useless.” And of course, there was plenty of “Exterminate” to go around. Too freakin’ funny. Really.

After that, we changed back into our street clothes and sat in on some panels, all entertaining. We got to hear about special effects from the SFX team of Doctor Who, as well as my favorite, the Liars’ Panel (where we discovered that Neil Patrick Harris will be the next Master – no, really). But the biggest moment came during a live taping of Doctor Who podshock when Warris Hussein, the director of the FIRST EVER DOCTOR WHO EPISODE in 1963, came out to discuss his work on the show. He has never made a con appearance before and is basically the reason why we were all there. It was surreal.

Then we watched some clips about the show from the UK (since we don’t have access to them here, save for YouTube) and sang along with Craig Ferguson’s Doctor Who song and then applauded all of the guests one final time, while not trying to be teary-eyed since it was all over.

Anyway, I obviously had an amazing time and met some amazing people. And I hope to be able to do it again next year. Same time. Same TARDIS.
