When I said I thought Amy Pond was the sexiest Doctor Who companion of all time, I think I'd forgotten about Leela. I just watching The Face of Evil again and that girl is so damn cute. I love the details about how generations have made myths and society in the years since the ship crashed, the survey team becoming "the Sevateem" and so on. Though I feel like there was a lot of unexplored material in Leela becoming travelling companion to the man whose face was the face she'd grown up believing to be evil incarnate. That he becomes someone she takes moral cues from, too--it would've been great seeing some really twisted psychological ripples from this.
With breakfast to-day I read the new Sirenia Digest, the two stories contained within seemingly about individuals whose lives are dominated by their repressed issues. "CAMUFARRE" is a pretty story about a girl who has supernatural chameleon abilities that are nicely paired with a personality filled with self doubt and fear of discovery. The second story, "THE TRANSITION OF ELIZABETH HASKINGS", is about a woman whose impossible romantic and sexual longings are accompanied by a strange nature she restrains for fear of dangerous, watery depths. A nice couple of stories.
