Sometimes I wish you could click out of dealing with some people as easily as you click out of windows on your computer.
So it’s been about a year since I
tripped and fell into the Whoniverse.
And, incidentally, I have also reached a follower milestone.
Er… a little while ago. I mean we’ve passed it but it was recently.
Anyway, we usually celebrate these things, right? Celebrate you, really, because you’re all
crazy nice enough to follow me. I couldn’t possibly compose a list of “favorite” blogs, because I love so many of you in different ways. But I figured I could tell you a little story about how we got here… with a little help from my friends.
You probably already know the beginning. As I was gobbling up doctorxrose fic and starting to write my own, the lovely valueturtle invited me to tumblr. So I joined. I followed Paige and also my super beta lastincurableromantic. I got my first follower that I didn’t know from outside tumblr, proofthatihaveaheart. Followed quickly by littlewhomouse, tkross, and fogsblue. Things were starting to get exciting!
I had a “friendly rivalry" with roseandherdoctor, who was gracious enough to introduce me to so many other authors and fan artists in the doctorxrose community. I somehow got a not-so-secret blog-stalker in lunarsilverwolfstar. And I got to see a cool behind-the-scenes peek at the writing process, met long-time fanfic authors like lauraxxtennant and kelkat9 and on rare occasion even got fic spoilers in my askbox! (Thanks Bittie752.)
The illustrious flypup started a collaboration with me of fic and art that blew my mind. Then fadewithfury doodled one of my ficlets. Art and fic is just the best pairing! I finally participated in a crazy impromptu fic tennis with Cara, baddest, dryadalis, aaauleta, re-sile, and kilodalton. And later, thebadddestwolf asked me to fake beta for her wonderful story. I discovered all forms of collaboration are beautiful.
And somewhere along the way, through fanfic and memes and conversation, here we are. I’m the lucky one, because I’ve got all of you! The moral to this story is simple: this blog, whatever it is, is what you’ve made it by interacting with me.
So to the people above who started out with me, to my new friends too many to list but equally beloved, and to all my followers…
Thank you. <3
