This was an absolutely fantastic piece! This is a beautiful, dark, powerful tribute to Leela. My favourite line was: "This place is where the flint must spark, and the tinder catch, and the fire-maker burned alive for the heresy of slaying gods and demons."
Author's Response: Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing from Leela\'s POV; the way she frames events into her worldview is fascinating to me.
Terrible. Wonderful. Fierce. Proud. Timeless - Leela. This, my dear, was sheer, fiery perfection. Thank you...
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Here via Calufrax, and, yes, that is brilliant. So very Leela, and hard to read just because of that. You've captured so much in a few words. (And your fleeting descriptions of Eight, too, feel very right, and lovely, and sad).
Author's Response: Thank you! Leela and the Doctor have such an interesting friendship; I love to explore it.
Here via a rec on Calufrax. This is both heart-breaking and glorious. You have Leela's voice down right, and this is certainly the warrior's death that she would desire.
Author's Response: Thank you! Her voice is so fun to write.
Wow. I love the evocative language you use, and your portrayal of Leela is wonderful.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Leela\'s voice is terribly fun to write--it\'s so distinctive!
I love Leela, really I do. She's just such a different sort of companion, but so much fun.
Author's Response: She is, isn\'t she? I adore her. She was one of the first people I met in Classic Who.
