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 just saw that you went to the premiere of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"! Ah, hun, I hope you had an amazing time and I wait a huge review from you soon ;) <3

*clings and sobs* Naomi, I can’t… I just… I have so many feelings and if I think about them too much everything hurts!

I really want to make a post about it soon (I have enough feelings to drown a small village, so they have to go somewhere~) but it was completely beautiful and completely shattering and gorgeously understated and perfectly balanced and never pretentious and I will just go away and start that post now! ♥

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.

newmixgirl replied to your post: […] #I REALLY hope they won’t but you can’t

Exactly! But I just remembered that Sue tweeted months ago about something getting chemicals out of one’s hair, I think it was Martin’s? Hmm…I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Oh and I’m with you on “not thinking less of them” because that.

OH! YES! Martin’s hair went green from the chlorine so, we must at least get to see them end up in the pool. Unless it’s, again, just waterlogged dreams/flashbacks, that could make for some really cool underwater sequences though! ;)

Yeah, I know people will be upset and that’s honestly fine, we probably will be a bit too, but I just hope they don’t get abusive :(

The closer and closer it gets to January, the more anxious I become. I’ve been so absorbed in fics and headcanon that I haven’t really been properly thinking on the show itself and canon story-line and now feelings are everywhere…

Oh gosh, I know exactly what you mean! 

It’s going to be really odd too because with fanfiction you know it’s not canon, it’s not concrete, so if there’s something you don’t like you can just reject it and move on but with this… Series two is concrete canon, whether I like it or not, there’s nothing I can do! Not that I expect I won’t like it because I’m sure I will it’s just going to be… I don’t really know how to explain it, a large change after so long of just picking and choosing I suppose?

[...] #I REALLY hope they won't but you can't ingore the huge gap between the time of TGG and the post-Christmas setting of Scandal - You know from what that post said, that is one of my biggest fears! I mean, I want to know HOW they got out of it at the beginning and all that happened there, I don't want them to just skip it~ (though we've got to admit that is kinda Moffat's style) After that we can have those "6 months later" till Christmas time, but yeah, I'm really afraid they might do that

Exactly this! Sure Mark is head writer but it doesn’t mean Steven will have no input and it’s not as if it’s uncommon for Steven Moffat to just throw a title in.

God, I want to know so badly how they get out but admittedly it’s going to be hard to clean up the pool scene, hard to the point where I would be disappointed if they skipped with a title but I wouldn’t think any less of them. They said themselves hey didn’t have a solution in mind when they wrote it and of course that gap, there will have to be a skip somewhere just whether it’s before or after the resolution of the pool is what it comes down to.

akljhsahs isn’t it just! Everything from the gorgeous style of shooting to the score to those characters and that acting! It’s stunning.

I regret nothing, though I’m sorry for all the feelings you’ll get later on… *hugs*

Oh god, my heart is not ready for more Mary/Matthew feelings! I was so god damn ready for that marriage! D: *clings*
