Hello, dear flist!

I feel like I've been very absent in the Whoniverse these past couple of weeks, and I've missed it dearly.  Starting back to school is always a difficult transition for me.  I'm just beginning my student teaching, so it's taking me a bit to find my feet.

I'm sorry that fic posts have been few and far between lately.  If you'd like, you can blame the sequel and the fact that a couple of you (ahem, [livejournal.com profile] doctorsdiva , [livejournal.com profile] nipplemuggins , and [livejournal.com profile] electrictoes ) have birthdays coming up.  Or in [livejournal.com profile] doctorsdiva 's case, already passed. (psst...I finally have an idea for your fic, am just letting it gestate).  How is the sequel you ask?  I'm almost finished with chapter four and I think it's coming along nicely.  Expect lots of angst, because it appears to be coming in bucketloads if [livejournal.com profile] salimali 's comments are any indication.  I know that I've failed with your requests lately.  Once again, blame the sequel.  When I get through with all these birthday fics, I'll try to get back on them.  And I'm pretty sure I've said it, but a few of them are being incorporated into the sequel either because it fit so well or I had already intended it to be there.

I'm curious if any of you are on Twitter.  I'm thinking of setting up a wishiknewwho account, just to keep up with everyone as posts might be kind of sparse until the holidays.  And I like reading status updates.  And [livejournal.com profile] electrictoes is practically famous over there, which may or may not get me one step closer to David Tennant.  ;)  Anyway, should I join?  Would anyone even follow me and let me follow them if I did?

Off to bed now.  Lesson planning tomorrow...but I'll try to squeeze a little writing in if possible.  I'm down to one ficlet in my file, but I'm reluctant to post it yet, because it's my personal favorite.  With any luck, I'll be posting some birthday ficlets very soon.

Hi there lovely readers and flist![Poll #1440694][Poll #1440694]

So I don't want to whine, but RL has been kicking the crap out of me lately, and it's not looking like it's going to let up anytime soon.  I'm trying to stay positive, but it gets hard sometimes.  However, I don't want to use this journal to make you all listen to my problems.

What I do want is some fluffy fic or hurt/comfort fic.  Anybody got any recs?  It can be old or even something I've read before.  Basically, I want to know what you read when you need cheering up.  Thanksamundo!  (Yes, I went there.)

I have a final at 8 am tomorrow and a lot of work due at 2 pm.  I have decided that it would be in my best interest to stay up late and finish.  I am teetering on that fine line between keyed up and about to fall asleep while standing up.  However, I feel that if I go to bed with this work unfinished, then I will be furiously working tomorrow to get done and I'm not likely to sleep well tonight anyway, what with all this hanging over my head.  So, I figure I will get everything done, go and take my test, then come back here for a nap before my 2 pm meeting.

Right now, I am plying myself with a lot of tea (damn you [livejournal.com profile] salimali and [livejournal.com profile] electrictoes ...now I cannot have it without milk) and reading tiny snippets of fanfiction to keep me going.  Thanks to all of you who've been posting some amazing stuff lately...I've got enough angst, action, and fluff to see me through until morning.

Oh, and tomorrow's my last day of school.  You know what that means: MORE FIC.  I have some great things planned for the summer holidays.

The next time I post, I'll be a much happier person.

ETA: I am much happier now!  Finished my work, had my test, and am now waiting on the meeting.  However, I keep falling asleep while sitting/standing.  This does not bode well for my meeting.

I am in shock.  Some wonderful person/people have nominated me for a few awards.  Both is up for the 10.5 category and Romance and the entire Both'verse is up for the 'Verse category.  I am so freaking happy right now!  You guys are amazing.  My heart feels very full.

Hello all!

I know I said that I wouldn't have anything new for you for a while...but I lied.  (Maybe you can forgive me.)

Anyway, over the next couple of days, here's what you can expect:

1. another ficlet (if my muse gets into gear)

2. an all new story, full of angsty angst (did I mention it might be angsty?)


3. a sequel to Mending (with almost no angst at all)

I mentioned in my previous post that I am home sick today.  I am quite bored actually.  So I've been playing intraweb leapfrog, just jumping from here to there.  [I am not shirking the fanfic writing.  I absolutely am not.  Okay, I am.]

So, I'm wandering along, answering my reviews on Teaspoon, when I find one by [livejournal.com profile] frintennant  that says something about [livejournal.com profile] doctorsdiva 's poetry convincing her to read my story.  And I remember [livejournal.com profile] doctorsdiva  saying something to me about writing poetry, so I figured I would check it out.

Imagine my surprise (and joy) when I discover that she has written 2 poems (read them here and here) inspired by Both/Mending.  Both are excellent and manage to convey the characters' feelings in a few flawless lines of pure brilliance.  Seriously.  I'm not just saying that because they were inspired by my fic.  I don't think I've ever felt more honored.

Quick break for a wishiknewwho ramble:
I never intended to write fanfic and even when I did I was reluctant to post.  I've read stuff in other fandoms, and I'd discovered that many of these groups could be brutal and clique-ish.  Some places didn't even welcome fluff.  (Imagine where we'd be without the fluff, without that short happy fic to read when you've had a bad day.)  Anyway, I'm glad I took the leap and posted, both here and on Teaspoon (although Teaspoon itself has been kind of frustrating lately).  I've been so amazed at how supportive this fandom is.  Some of the things you guys say in my reviews are enough to make my day.  I want to thank everyone who has welcomed me into this fandom.  I hope to be here for a long time.

/End Ramble

Go read [livejournal.com profile] doctorsdiva 's poems.  And while you're at it, read everything else she's written.  She's quite brilliant.

Woke up to find myself quite ill today.  Why can't this happen on days when I don't have class, or when I don't have an exam?  All these years of college, and this is the first time I'm going to have to make up a test.  *frowns*

Anyway, on the positive side of things, I got really fed up with school and just everything yesterday, so this little two-day break should do wonders for my mood.  I'm going to take this time to catch up on some fanfic reading, especically the CoT nominees. 

And yes, I will be working on new chapters of Mending and Believe in Her.  No promises on postings, though.

wishiknewwho: (Default)
So I've been saying "next chapter soon" in a lot of responses to Both lately, and I really meant it...when  I said it.  I've been working hard trying to get that last chapter out to you guys, and I'm about halfway through right now, but it's just not going to happen.  I'm falling asleep on the keyboard right now (so it probably wouldn't be that good if I did finish it, not to mention the editing), and we're going home tomorrow.  I've got class first thing on Monday, so I won't be back until sometime Monday afternoon.  I would like to say I'll have it posted sometime Monday evening, but I'm kind of not trustworthy on that.  So let me just say this: I'm going to work on it as often as I can until I get the thing finished.

I'm sorry I couldn't get it out sooner.  You guys have been great for putting up with all the angst and the morally questionable Rose.  I do have at least three more stories to tell in this 'verse, and I can promise that none of them are as angsty as this one has been.  Well, not too much angst anyways.  One of them is downright fluffy, which should be most welcome for those of you in the angst support group.

Okay, off to bed.  zzzzzzz
