My friend was an enthusiastic musician, being himself not only a very capable performer but a composer of no ordinary merit. All the afternoon he sat in the stalls wrapped in the most perfect happiness, gently waving his long, thin fingers in time to the music, while his gently smiling face and his languid, dreamy eyes were as unlike those of Holmes the sleuth-hound, Holmes the relentless, keen-witted, ready-handed criminal agent, as it was possible to conceive. In his singular character the dual nature alternately asserted itself, and his extreme exactness and astuteness represented, as I have often thought, the reaction against the poetic and contemplative mood which occasionally predominated in him.

God that letter makes me cry. I can't wait to know how you end this. Please know that despite I deleted my tumblr for personal reasons and have taken a huge step back in this fandom that I am still here to read the last chapter and yell about it to you because it's so amazing---every time I re read it I'm in awe at how amazing it is. Best of luck! -naomi (iadler/newmixgirl) <3

Hi! Oh man - thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m always so happy to hear from you, Naomi! You’ve been here for me and this story since the beginning, and it’s meant so much to me. I can’t wait to hear what you think about The Final Chapter. :D

On another note, I owe you (and a lot of people) one shots… And they’re coming after the conclusion of CACH. So much fiction coming!

I would REALLY REALLY love to know how Martha and Mickey are doing. Seriously, the only bits they gave us lacked so much apart from the shock of "Whoa, wait, they got MARRIED?"! (Ah, classic RTD.) But seriously, I WANT THEM BACK FOR JUST A BIT! Is that too much to ask?

S E R I O U S L Y. If they had been in Children Of Earth that would have been SO EPIC. But maybe that’s a good thing because they escaped that emotional trauma. But yeah more than anyone else, I want those two back for an episode. They’re just perfect. Both of them walked away from the Doctor with their heads held high and made a life for themselves. Like, YOU GO MICKEY. YOU MARRIED MARHTA FUCKING JONES. FOUR FOR YOU MICKEY SMITH-JONES. YOU GO MICKEY SMITH-JONES.
