NaNoWriMo Update

40k +91.

And, a passage that I'm particularly proud of:

“She was alive,” Harding said quietly. “Can you imagine, what it’s like to have something you’re so familiar with stand in front of you, wearing flesh and skin? Can you imagine how much it hurt, seeing that flesh dissolve into cold oils and pigments?”
The Doctor stared at him.
“You might think I’m a silly old man, in love with a painting on a wall.”
“No,” he answered.
“You think I’m an idiotcrying over a mirage.”
“No,” he looked Harding in the eye. “I think you were very, very lucky.”


  1. NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE! I really like the wording and the stylization of it. I give it a 10.

  2. Be proud. After all, the Doctor would have said that.

  3. It all came from the fact that Mona Lisa in SJA is played by the same actress as Idris. And I figured the Doctor would have a certain amount of sympathy for someone in love with an inanimate object.
