UntitledFirst Trump came for the MexicansUntitled by Arcalian
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Mexican.
Then Trump came for our private healthcare, and I didn’t speak up because I figured Hillary or Bernie would do the same thing anyway.
Then Trump came for public property by way of corporate asset forfeiture, and I didn’t speak up because I rent an apartment.
Then Trump came for the Muslims, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Muslim.
Then Trump said “We should shut down the internet” ….and then it was too late for anyone to speak up.
A.N.G.E.L.S. Recruit: Brian WatersBrian WatersA.N.G.E.L.S. Recruit: Brian Waters by Arcalian
code name "Targeter"
Born: October 4, 1989 in Leeds, UK
5 foot 11 inches. Blonde hair, green eyes.
Background: Originally a member of the British SAS, he was recruited by a (classified) British agency who also gave him an arm-mounted xenon laser weapon. Political maneuvering in Parliament meant the funding for his agency was cut. After a brief but effective tour in the Middle East, he was recommended for the Guardian A.N.G.E.L.S. division. His laser almost sent him to the Avenging division instead, but he's neither a heavy enough hitter nor trigger-happy enough to qualify. He is happy enough to be a Guardian.
Personality: He gets along well with most other operatives, if a bit distant. Only two things really annoy him; totally disorganized people, and foolish political maneuverings by politicians and military brass who aren't "on the ground" facing the threats. Good at taking orders, going into action and saving the day; not so good at f

The TARDIS materialized in a dirty alley. A bitter wind was blowing, and snow was coming down fairly heavily.
There was a pause, then the door opened. The Doctor, Amy and Rory stepped out, all dressed for the winter weather.
The Doctor looked up, expression unreadable. “A cold winter's night in London....”
“So?” Rory asked.
“It reminds me of something.”
“You've been everywhere,” Amy pointed out. “Everywhere reminds you of something.”
“Something specific,” the Doctor said. “Something from long ago.”
“How long ago?” Rory asked. “From before the.....the....”
“Before the Time War,” the Doctor agreed. “Yes.” He drew a deep breath. “Come along, Mr. and Mrs. Pond!”
Amy chuckled, and Rory sighed. They followed him.
The snow was heavy; Amy hoped they wouldn’t be out in it

The harbor was busy, but not too busy for the locals to start in amazement when a blue box ground into reality on one of the docks.
Inside that blue box, the Doctor and Peri saw everyone staring, via the view screen.
“That.....wasn't supposed to happen,” the Doctor muttered, for once not nearly as loud as his garish patchwork coat.
“Admit it Doctor,” Peri said, “You've had a harder time piloting the TARDIS since you regenerated.”
The Doctor emitted a genuine harrumph, restored to form by her jibe. “I'll have you know that this incarnation is a vast improvement on the last, young lady! I've become the flower of Gallifreyan elegance!”
“I'm a botanist,” she reminded him wearily, “And you're not so much a flower as a weed.”
The Doctor's eyes flashed, and for a moment she saw real anger there; but then the light faded and he snorted.
So I make the mistake of asking my smartarse dad what he wants for Christmas and he says “check around among the deviantart crowd and/or elsewhere, and find a few websites (NOT amazon) where you can download low-cost or freemp3s (they would obviously have to have a HUGE selection, or would be no use to me). please trouble to actually TEST these sites by downloading a song you might like, and when you’re sure they work well then you can send them to me in an email.“
So does anybody know any sites like that?
