Doctor Who : Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) on Matt Smith’s departure

     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”

im a tiny bit loathe to post this because im blushing so hard and im feeling very self conscious about my face BUT

i had the amazing opportunity to see matt and karen at wizard world chicago and im still a little bit in shock about the whole thing because i owe a lot to doctor who, especially amy and eleven, and i never in a million years thought i would be able to do anything like this!

this might get long so bear with me :x

i met matt first during his autographs, and it was a little bit overwhelming for me. tbh i could barely say anything at first and i was worried about crying or holding up the line and a bunch of other stuff. but i managed to say something like “can i say thank you for being doctor who” which i guess its silly to ask to say thank you but w/e because i started to get teary (oops) and couldnt think of anything else to say. and idk if i looked terrified or something because he was just kind of really gently like “of course!” and then said thank you to me and its really a testament to my strength that i didnt start crying until i was already out of the line. but he was so sweet and nice and pretty much told everyone to have a fantastic~ day of course. trent found me wandering (thank goodness) by an atm just kind of clutching my dvds and staring down them and apparently patrick stewart was in the booth right next to us and i didnt even notice (oops again)

the photo op was that night because karens flight came in late and i met a nice girl in line who i was able to chat with which was nice because i was internally panicking a little bit (thanks girl who i never introduced myself to! if you see this your picture looked like it was gonna be cute~) it also helped to kind of watch people go up to them and when it was my turn i asked for a big hug (or something) and karen was really enthusiastic about it and they both kind of just pulled me in and squeezed me really tight between them. im pretty sure my face did a thing for a second because i forgot what i was supposed to be doing but hey there werent any tears this time! i think i said thank you to them? and they both said goodbye and waved and it all just happened so fast it was hard for me to process it right away tbh (i met another nice girl while i was waiting for trent to get to his photo op with karen, hi other nice girl just in case! i forget your name, sorry!)

trent told me that he was able to say a few things to karen and that she seemed really upbeat and happy to be there even though she had literally just gotten off a plane and still had at least an hour of photos left (we left the area around 10 and there was still a long line left) idk if he would want me to post his picture or not but im going to because its super cute and hes blushing a little bit and now i have a picture of my two favorite gingers :D

karens autographs were the next morning at 8 am so i was kind of a zombie while i was in line which was a blessing in disguise because i was too busy trying to not fall asleep to be scared about anything. i think it also helped that i saw them both the day before and i was feeling slightly less shy. the girl in front of me had a sketchbook and asked karen to draw a little picture which she was really excited about. her guy or whatever was kind of annoyed like “karen. we dont have time.” (the panel was in an hour and there were still tons of people in line) but she just kind of ignored him and drew a little stick figure anyway. i love her a lot!!! when it was my turn i told her good morning and said a few things about how i loved selfie a whole bunch and she seemed really grateful and excited about that. im honestly amazed that she was so enthusiastic after apparently staying up later the night before just to do her als challenge thing!!

pretty much after that i left to get in line for the panel. my seat was soooo close but i stupidly gave it up to attempt to ask a question (its ok its ok im not still the tiniest bit upset about this) but the panel was of course amazing, theyre hilarious and it was basically an hour and a half of matt teasing karen. some of my favorite moments:

  • literally seconds after they sat down matt started messing with karen like trying to poke at her head or mess with her hair or something???
  • them bickering over whose phone they filmed karens als challenge on (and apparently them staying up late together the night before?? wow.)
  • how excited matt was about ninja turtles, he made some obscure reference to a villain i dont know comparing them to karen and she was very indignant about it because she didnt get the reference either (his favorite turtle is leonardo ps)
  • karen used to tell scary stories to her friends and would end up scaring herself. she would tell her friends cotton and wool tufts in the grass were hair or something, but then matt spent a good minute teasing her about how she says “cotton wool”
  • karen also spent a decent amount of time doing terminator quotes at him in a funny voice and matt just kind of shook his head
  • them singing the doctor who theme together, and karen ending it with “vortexes?!?”
  • matt had an imaginary friend called roo the kangaroo that he blamed his clumsiness on when he was a child
  • matt called her “k-face” i stg they do this shit on purpose
  • both of them talking about how they are best friends and how easy it is to be around each other
  • matt acting like a llama and referencing the emperors new groove, and then collapsing in a fit of giggles when karen said she would be a meerkat because “its true!!!”
  • he also compared her to a sloth because of her limbs
  • when asked what their favorite part of america is, karen responded, “portion size!”
  • we all know about the uncomfortable touch game, but apparently there was also a game called “gapping” where they would run up behind someone with their hands on their waist and shoot their arm through the gap????
  • karen said she thought eleven was hotter than ten, and matt said “im a strange sort of wonky looking man” :’)
  • they jokingly did the face touch thing from the christmas special which i know everyone has seen by now but yea!!!!!
  • he did the drunken giraffe dance of course <3 <3 <3

annnnd this got ridiculously long and i could probably still keep writing because theyre both incredible people and i feel very lucky that i got to have this experience even if i spent most of my time around both of them kind of too stunned to act like a normal human being. seriously though i love them both a million times more now (i didnt think that was possible tbh) and i feel sooooo grateful!!

im so looking forward to the next time i get to go to a con where they are guests again!!!!!!
