Here’s my story of meeting John Barrowman for the second time the other day, just because all of tumblr and his fans need to know how truly amazing he actually is….

Straight away I asked John if he remembered meeting me backstage (thanks to Make-A-Wish) in Toronto 5 years ago and he completely remembered! I reminded him of what he’d told me (which was that he was certain I’d get better and stronger and that when I do I have to come find him not in my wheelchair next time) and he looked so happy and pleased that what he had told me had had such a huge impact on me. He said something along the lines of “I say these things, and of course I truly mean them, but I don’t necessarily expect them to have any effect or to come true. But look at you! You look amazing and this is fabulous and I had no idea, I just had no idea!” he then gave me a round of applause).

Then, and this is the big exciting bit that made me cry, he said “seriously, can you send me and email with your whole story fully explained and high resolution before and after photos of you at your sickest and now? Please do, because you know why? I want to talk about you in my next concert tour. Would that be ok?”

ummmm……. let’s just let that sink in a minute……. I mean…….. what. just. what. I was taken so by surprise and joy that I just burst into tears!

This man is completely unbelievable. He seemed genuine too, and I don’t think it’s something he just says to everyone…. maybe it will never happen, I’m not getting my hopes up toooo much, but come on - to be told that by your lifelong hero is like a dream come true. He gave me his business card and told me I better send that email asap!

I then cheekily asked for a photo with him (which wasn’t allowed for time constraint reasons) and him and his security said of course no problem, he then announced to the entire crowd that he was sorry but he had to make one exception to the rule today because “I healed this girl, I am her personal jesus!” we then took a photo shouting “hallelujah!” in our most over the top american accents lol, he reiterated that I need to send that email, and we parted ways with him signing in my book -

“You kept on trucking’ and now look at you! I had no idea. John Barrowman”
(‘Keep on truckin’ is what he wrote on my old wheelchair)

What a spectacular human being! Bravo Barrowman, you remind me everyday that “I am what I am” and that I am just fine that way ♥

This may be one of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen.

I think my life is complete. Today, after being convinced to go to Supercon by a very good friend, I met Alex Kingston and it was totally worth it. She is so nice and yes, her hair is very real. But, honestly, it still feels so surreal that my brain cannot hardly wrap around this fact.

matteleven:

So I finally got to have my photo taken with the brilliant Matt Smith. He gave me a very wide-eyed look and a grin when I walked up to him and was happy to do a back to back pose. It was also very surreal to have my photo taken with so many people staring! Either way it made my day and I hope you like it.You can also check out my facebook page here :)

Okay, so I’ve seen a lot of celebrities and tapings, but almost none have excited me as much as watching Doctor Who film in Central Park. Matt Smith is the most dapper man I’ve ever seen, and Karen is beautiful! They would wave occasionally, and at one point even began taking pictures of us.

The crowds were absolutely crazy, but Matt, Karen, and Arthur all seemed so chill and would occasionally make jokes about how they wished they were shooting something more exciting (I’m not quite sure what Matt and Karen were doing, but Arthur was just walking around).

All in all, they seemed absolutely lovely and I’m so excited I got a chance to see them!

singinginthetardis:

… since I was taking some time at the counter, my mom sat down at where I probably would have sat if it was the other way around; facing away from the window. 

so I sat facing her, so in the corner of my eye I could see out the window.

and I was just casually drinking my tall white hot chocolate 

and out of fucking nowhere, casually walking down the street, I see the profile if Matt Smith. 

and first I think “no, there is nO WAY this is him.”

but then I see his famous street-walking sunglasses, and by his side, Arthur Darvill.

and I flip the fuck out.

and I stop breathing.

and I turned red and almost passed out and I started shaking.

I didn’t know what the fucking hell to do.

and my mom was like “JUST GO” and so I grabbed my purse and just left

and I started running down the street after them…

This concerns cons and Torchwood actors

theplatybadger:

So I just found out there’s a thing in England for sort of undergroud tv shows and there’s going to be a lot of people but that’s not the point

the point is

the whole main cast of Torchwood is going to be there, meaning, John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Naoko Mori, Kai Owens, Gareth David-Lloyd, and Burn Gorman.

There’s cool Doctor Who actors too from Classic Who and Noel for some reason BUT

TORCHWOOD

ALL

TOGETHER 

SINCE

FOREVER

(besides Miracle Day b/c fuck Miracle Day)

I really hope people are there to record it and stuff because jesus christ this is amazing
