Two Immortals one TARDIS
Now this post may be a little self indulgent, but I think some things are worth celebrating, and this is one of them.
A little over a year ago, I sent rude_not_ginger a message asking if she might like to do an RP thread set post Children of Earth, exploring a little of how that effected Jack, and how a conversation between he and the Doctor might go. A year ago today, 14th July 2009, we started our first thread. The rest, as they say, is history.
One thread turned into another, and another to another, and what started out small grew and blossomed into something I could have never imagined, and 28 threads and 7008 comments later (yes, I counted) it's still going strong.
The threads have become such an epic story, that has involved so many elements; from adventure to romance, to sadness and loss, to technobabble and spaceships, alien planets and oh such a lot of running. They span over 200 years (well, depending how you look at it), manage to incorporate canon events (and we totally pre-empted 'The Waters of Mars'), and have stories that are seeded and form full arcs (even when we don't quite intend them to!). They've gone places I'd have never expected, both physically and emotionally, and there's not a single tag in there that I don't hold dear to my heart.
I utterly adore re-reading the old threads, and I do it often. While writing the stories in this verse I've laughed, I've cried, I've been shocked and gone without far too much sleep on more than one occasion. It's been a year of writing that I've enjoyed every moment of and I look forward to much more.
I'm not one to ever really recommend my own writing, but this verse is one I'm immensely proud of, and as such I'd link anyone interested towards the master post here where everything is linked together chronologically.
And to rude_not_ginger? Thank you so much for what you've put into this verse with me. I think the love that goes into it really shows and I adore it (and you) completely.
Thanks to best_served_hot for the graphic! Amazing as always!
