So for the past week, I have been sick, menstruating, and in tech/performances. Any one of these would be stressful enough. All three at once just seems like a big FUCK YOU from the universe. Oh, well, I've survived the week, and the show is closed -- just a quickie three-night cabaret, would have been a lot more fun if I hadn't had the damn flu the whole time. (I think it's the flu. It could also be a cold that's manifesting weirdly for me. Or possibly the plague.) So now I can rest up a bit, and hopefully NOT BE SICK ANYMORE UGH.
But anyway! I made a thing a few weeks ago, and now that eleventyfest
reveals are up, I can post it properly.All Maps Welcome

Summary: She knows she's not the only person to ever have traveled with the Doctor. It's a comforting thought.
I had a devil of a time getting into Clara's voice for this, and I wrote it all super last minute, but for all that, I kind of like it anyway. My recipient never responded to it, as far as I know, but from the master list, it looks like they dropped out of the fest, so possibly fandom is just not a thing that's happening for them at the moment, and I definitely understand that. I miss being able to write a lot. I know it comes and goes for me, and I'm not stressing out about it, but writer's block is sad and frustrating all the same.
On the other hand, I'm almost finished with a vid for an almost completely dead fandom, so that will be a thing! A thing that nobody but me will ever watch, to be specific. But I'm enjoying myself anyway. Hopefully I'll finish that up next week, now that this cabaret's done with and I maybe have some time to myself again. (It's a Buffy vid. A high school
Buffy vid. Because that's just how my brain works, apparently, and also I've been doing a rewatch lately. I also really want to make a vidlet focused solely on "The Wish", but I can't quite find the right music for it yet. And also WTF that fandom is virtually nonexistent at this point, why am I getting all the vid bunnies now.)
