Authorly Update - Announcing "GP Who"

Yes, if you're a deviant like me, you might have noticed the pun. "General Practitioner" Who... it was like fate, and I found that I could not resist.

And so we have the following announcement...

Due to certain comments on LJ and the advent of a truly awful pun (see note above), I have embarked upon an epic project: a full Doctor Who spinoff series based in the future AU I’ve created for this story. That’s right... Growing Pains is the pilot for a full run of 13 episodes following the adventures of Old!Jack and the Doctor from his timeline... and a surprise third character, too! Stay tuned for excitement, danger, timey-wimey stuff (ding! squawk! bang! eww...), humor, hurt/comfort, character development, mystery, a multi-Doctor story, and a rousing game of spot the series-wide meme! Coming to a computer screen near you (not that near, it’s bad for your eyes!) in the hopefully not too distant future: GP Who!

I do not have a strict posting schedule, since I have no earthly idea how long each episode is going to wind up being. But I do have a rough plan. All episode titles are tentative until such time as I actually post the ep.

GPW1.01: Growing Pains
Hiatus #1: I'm going to do the timestamp meme before GP Who takes over my life. Look for the post in a few days!
GPW1.02: Wolf Pups
GPW1.03: Getting to Know You
GPW1.04: Life Cycle
GPW1.05: Time Lapse, Part I
Hiatus #2: Because I am evil and want to break up the two-parters. Time for me to do a non-GPW story.
GPW1.06: Time Lapse, Part II
GPW1.07: Empathy
GPW1.08: You Can Never Go Home Again
GPW1.09: Ars Memoriae, Part I
Hiatus #3: Time for another non-GPW break for me, and then into the home stretch.
GPW1.10: Ars Memoriae, Part II
GPW1.12: (So as not to give away the series-wide meme, you're going to have to wait to see this title...)
GPW1.13: (So as not to give away the series-wide meme, you're going to have to wait to see this title...)

Yes, it will be very much OT3. No, I don't know if there will be anything more than very, very close friendship happening on screen. (I just don't know if I can write it. Perhaps a guest writer might step in should it become necessary? We shall see.)

If, after reading the end of Growing Pains, you are curious about what Nineteen looks like, just google around for pictures of an actor named David Caruso. Nineteen looks like him, except a bit shorter, a bit older, with hair a little bit curlier. The comparison is completely physical, Nineteen does not act like any of David Caruso's characters or anything like that (I've never even seen the man on screen, just some great photos of him at IMDb).

So... reactions? Accusations of insanity?

Also, nightrider101 told me that it was worth doing, and has agreed to wield the poking stick in the effort of making sure I actually write and post. So thank her! :-)
