One Year of
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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] best_served_hot for the graphic! Amazing as always!

And if you won't recommend your own writing, I will. So there. :p

And, really, I think I should say thank you for how much you've helped me improve my writing. Well, that and you're sort of a nice person I kind of like talking to sometimes. ;)

As an avid fan and follower of your series (as I consider it) I just wanted to take a moment to offer my congrats. The effort and heart put into every written word is clearly evident. I consider in one of my top reads of the year, and yes I include everything there. Books and novels and biographies. An amazing journey, and I look forward to more.

I don't mind huge-like-Xbox stories at all. :D I had a private AU Rude/Reno log, a long time ago, that a friend and I had been working on for about a year, and when I posted 20 chapters of it to Y!Gallery, I was still only like 2/3rds of the way through editing what we had. xD We parted ways on bad terms a while back unfortunately, before we ever got to finish the story itself, but reading back on it is still a tremendous joy for me, and I prefer to dwell on the better memories around it. Such accomplishments are marvelous, and leave the best impressions and residual feelings, imo. I'm happy for you guys and am excited to get into this. ♥

I, ashamedly, have no actually read your threads BUT I love you both and think it's so, so, SO very awesome that you have such an awesome verse built off of one little PM. To me, this is exactly what RP is about and it's awesome. &hearts

Drunk!Alex toasts you both.
