During my years of service in the Buffy fandom there was a meme-ish sort of thing that went 'round a couple of times regarding the various characters.  In particular, your take on said character; why they were the way they were etc. So I thought I'd drag out that old chestnut and give you the beginnings of my take on the lovely Donna Noble.  It's not finished but I'm at work and only have a 15 minute break so, here you go


  • Daddy’s girl
  • Really loved Lance
  • Couldn’t face Morocco on her own.  It was too soon and it hurt too much.
  • She told everyone that she chose Egypt because the travel agency would only transfer the fares for a similarly priced destination.  Donna paid the extra to walk in the oldest dust she could think of.
  • Knows her mother loves her.  That’s just the way some mothers are.
  • Spoiled by Wilf because he couldn’t spoil Sylvia when she was growing up.  He was away from home a lot due to work and Sylvia's mother wasn’t the softest of people.  Sometimes the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. (Sylvia married Geoff because he was so much like Wilf.  She shouldn’t have been shocked when Geoff doted on Donna but it stung. Geoff was supposed to be for her.   What she didn’t realise was, he was.  Always.)
  • Loves the Doctor even though she thinks he talks shit half the time and keeps shifting  the goal posts to suit himself most days.
  • It gives her a little thrill every time he tells her she’s brilliant, even though she doesn’t believe him.  Yet.
  • She hopes she will one day soon.
  • Is trying to train him to see the 'smaller picture' as well as the big picture.

It's just a start.  Feel free to tell me about your own Donna.  Or the Doctor.  Or Sylvia and Wilf or whoever your favourite character may be.

Wilf meme!

I do like your Donna! Have a Wilf in return:
-worked since the age of nine, going out with his father's barrow.
-bought his first telescope when he was 11 from a pawn shop in Covent Garden
-RAF in WW2 cause it was the closest he could get to the stars; generally doesn't talk about it though he's considering telling Donna about that police box he once saw coming home from the pub on leave during the Blitz...
-shotgun marriage (Sylvia was conceived at the pictures, a 3D sci-fi double bill.)
-wonders what would have happened if his wife hadn't died so young
-understands Sylvia now more than he did when she was growing up. Wishes it was the other way round.
-Doesn't know what he'd do without either his daughter or grandaughter.
-Is dying to get a proper look at the TARDIS. Maybe even a little trip, though nowhere dangerous, not with his sciatica.
-Will never tell Donna that he's scared that she won't come back.
-Keeps an extra mug and a packet of chocolate biscuits up by the allotment, just in case The Doctor pops by one of these nights...
