OOC: Two Years Gone

It's been a long time since I've come back to this journal. I don't know if anyone reads this anymore. Or if anyone thinks about it. I do, sometimes. The Doctor was such a huge part of my life for a long time. It's strange to think how much has changed.

I graduated college. I started my career. I fell in love. I'm getting married. Lots of life changes. Somewhere in there I ran a 5k, too, which is probably the strangest of them all, but I digress.

Still, I think about Livejournal. A place I loved, and people I called my close friends for so long. I feel like I left in a whirlwind several years ago, when things on LJ changed, and stayed sporadically in DreamWidth, though not really with the Doctor. He belongs here, and deep down I know that.

Anyway. I was just thinking about you all today.

How are you?

You look great by the way.

Day of the Doctor

And don't forget to watch the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who on 23 November on BBC One!

State of the mun

Please be aware that the mun is going through very extensive training and long hours at work this week, and her tagging will be very limited. I apologize for any delays, things should return to normal soon.

On the Moor

Running comes easily. It's something he knows, something that's part of him, ever since he first learned to walk. Ever since he first looked into the Untempered Schism. He runs. He runs, and he runs well.

Except over swampy, boggy areas. He doesn't run quite so well there. He does try, of course.

"Run, Sally!" he calls back. And then loses his footing. And falls, face first, onto the wet ground.

OOC: Just so you're aware

My tagging can be spotty at the best of times, but as of tomorrow I am starting an incredibly high courseload and it will be significantly spottier. RP is my hobby of choice and I will be around as much as I can. By that I mean: I'm gonna be around, but I'll be slow! Don't give up on me!

Please don't hesitate to PM or email me (naughtygirlslikepolka AT gmail DOT com) in order to communicate.

OOC: I've been neglectful...

But two of my most beloved companions have passed away recently. Today, the beautiful and wonderful Mary Tamm died after a struggle with cancer. Romana I has been, and most likely always will be, one of my favorite companions. I have followed Mary Tamm's career for a long time and---yeah, this really breaks my heart. I had hoped to fulfill a lifelong dream of meeting Mary at Gallifrey One this coming year, but it was not meant to be.

On 5 June 2012, Caroline John also passed away. I adored Liz Shaw, and she was the inspiration for my own choices in life to become a scientist. I also loved Liz's amazing spin-off show P.R.O.B.E., the grown-up Doctor Who before Torchwood was even a thought in RTD's mind!

I'm so sad to see the heroes of my childhood pass away in recent years. Rest in peace to all of them.

OOC: I apologize

For vanishing so suddenly and for so long. I just got back from a two-week research project on San Salvador Island in the Bahamas. There was no internet or phone and I was unable to respond to any messages. Coincidentally, there was also no air conditioning.

I had planned to write a detailed announcement of my departure the night before, but my computer decided to stop working and I spent that day running about to drop it off at a repair shop before my flight.

What did I miss?

Follows this.

The lift seemed smaller now. Maybe it was the knowledge how little time was left. Maybe it was the attitude that had changed between them since they first rode up to the room with the stars.

Maybe it was the weight of all of the things they weren't saying. Sometimes that weight would suffocate the Doctor when he was awake and alone.

The scrambling device was on again, keeping the cameras in the lift blind as to their actions. The immature side of the Doctor wanted to make a face at the cameras, simply because the Valeyard couldn't see. He didn't, of course. He just stood there, waiting.

"What will you tell him?" he asked.

"Rude? Is that the sort of man I am now, am I rude? Rude and not ginger..."

"Have you ever thought what it's like to be wanderers in the fourth dimension? To be exiles?"

"One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no tears, no regrets, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine."
