Yep, it's a shiny, newly-minted copy of COMPANION PIECE, edited by L.M. Myles and Liz Barr, published by Mad Norwegian Press, and containing an essay by me! Eeep. I haven't actually received my contributor copies yet, but I already know that all 30-something essays, by a whole bunch of fabulous women, will be dazzling and thought-provoking and delightful. The book is the third in the Doctor Who 'Geek Girl' series - following the success of Chicks Dig Timelords and Chicks Unravel Time - and this one focuses, as you might imagine from the title, on the Companions. *All* of the Companions.

I was lucky enough to get to write about the true and beautiful perfection of Mary Tamm's Romana I <3 (As documented visually in this vid, which I made to say thank you to [personal profile] shinyjenni for her editing and encouragement, and to express the overflow of Romana love I had after watching The Key To Time twice through.) It's been about a year and a half since I actually wrote it (!) and I can't quite bring myself to go back and look at it ever again because oh god /o\ BUT it's called 'What Has Romana Ever Done For Us?' and if nothing else I am pleased with the title.

Many thanks to [personal profile] calapine for letting me have words in her book! :-D

notes: This vid is dedicated to the wonderful [personal profile] shinyjenni! She bakes the world's best brownies, is fabulous and encouraging when asked to edit essays at the last minute or beta vids in secret, she can do MAGICAL THINGS with a sewing machine, she has good and thoughtful opinions on Doctor Who and superheroes and is really happy to share them, and is an all round excellent and delightful human. Every home should have one. :-) (I'm pretty sure her fingernails actually shine like justice too.) <3

Thanks to [personal profile] such_heights and [personal profile] cosmic_llin for beta-ing and squee and appreciating the perfection of Mary Tamm's eyebrows with me. And particular thanks to [personal profile] calapine who is completely responsible for introducing me to Romana I in the first place. IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT.

This vid premiered earlier this evening at the Nine Worlds Doctor Who vidding panel. It was very exciting! :-D (Until [personal profile] such_heights was a bad person and pointed me out to the rest of the room who all looked at me and it was terrible /o\)
