current mood: giddy
I don't know if anyone even checks here anymore, but I figured I'd post anyway.
Over two years ago, I posted that I had written a huge chunk on "Long Journey Home" and thought I might finish soon. And then nothing else.
Long story short, I wrote nearly 30,000 words -- bringing it to the end with the need to go back and fill in some spots before I posted -- and I loved it. Perfect in every way.
And then a computer glitch erased 1/3 of it.
And my heart broke just a bit. Yes, I knew what I had written, but writing it a second time isn't ever quite the same as the first time. I was so upset, I just left it. This week, after mentioning to someone I had written a bit of a fic in which Ten goes to see Susan, I read through some (all) of the stories I'd posted. And I fell in love with it all over again. I found the remains of the file, and read through it last night. I didn't lose as much as I thought. Yes, I lost a few things... but nothing I can't redo now that I have some perspective.
I will admit here -- I have barely watched Doctor Who since Journey's End. I've watched maybe six episodes with Matt Smith. I understand through bits I've picked up they wrote in a corporeal TARDIS for one episode, and they have focused on the importance of River Song knowing the Doctor's name.
For those of you who read this three years ago and before, you know I worked in those elements long before Moffat did. * grins * So I don't want anyone thinking I copied. I had the ideas first!
Anyway... I don't know when it will be, but I'll post eventually. When I fill in the spaces and wrap it up.
I'm still here...
