Come Along Pondblog
// Today marks the one year anniversary since I started posting on Pondblog. Since it coincides with Munday, I wanted to make a post talking a bit about how much this blog, as well as all of you, has meant to me over the last year.
I started Pondblog because I adored cosplaying Amy, but didn’t have any DW cosplay friends at the time, and had only been to two conventions. I was starting to accrue quite the collection, and frankly I wanted to show them off! I would often find myself in the “Doctor Who cosplay” tag and see posts from answers-from-stormcage and doctor-shenanigans , and they just looked as though they were having so much fun. My friend Neda suggested that I start a cosplay RP blog too, but I never in my wildest dreams could have expected that I would find myself interacting with them. They were just so cool and so talented, and I was just sitting in my kitchen with a laptop; I didn’t have a TARDIS!
Flash forward one year, and it still baffles me that we’ve come so far. I’m part of the team now (which I still can’t believe), and I have a family. When my ex and I split Team Shenanigans took such good care of me, and when I lost my apartment Doctor!Mun and Clara!Mun were willing to welcome me into their home with open arms (yes, you read that right. Amy is actually (temporarily) living on the TARDIS) and have been nothing but wonderful. River!Mun came to visit for my birthday and nearly gave her old mum a heart attack when she jumped out from under a tarp.
Here’s your Whovian Fairy Tale for the day, followers: Rory!Mun and I are actually, properly together. Took a bit of prodding, and really, it was nearly word for word that scene in, “Let’s Kill Hitler,” when Teen!Amy finds out. But I’m wildly happy, and I’d like to think she is as well.
But that’s not the only thing misterwilliamsandmisspond has done; she actually fixed all my computer woes with a new Macbook for my birthday (named, “The Pandorica,” upon suggestion from the Doctor; because really, what else do you name a box-shaped item that shows Rory’s devotion / Rory going above and beyond what anyone else would do for Amy?).
What does this mean for Pondblog? The one thing you’ve all been waiting for: I should officially be back to blogging on a semi-regular schedule.
This brings me to my final point in this little Munday writeup: you guys. You are honestly the best followers in the entire world. You have been so insanely patient while I figured things out in my personal life, and I want to thank you for that from the bottom of my heart. Some of you have sent me such kind messages, not only on here but on my personal blog as well, and there are even some of you who I’ve formed real and true friendships with, and I need you to know how much these mean to me. It’s wonderful to feel like I’ve touched even a few of your lives, and I hope you know how you’ve touched mine. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done over the last year, from the bottom of my heart.
Love always and forever,
Amelia Pond, it’s like a name from a fairy tale.
