I'm nobody! Who are you?

Question for our newer members (and,.perhaps, our older ones, too)

This question goes out specifically to: barbarafett, jackie_tyler, jamesbowman, pete_wisdom and mythverdandi, but also, generally, to our old regulars:

Every year, I go into the Hoedown expecting to start a completely new story, that can exist on its own, independant of its own past. But the stories that have worked the best, as narratives, turn out to be the ones where we develop, even further, our own alternate Doctor Who universe, with its own unique backstory and subplot threads (such as the "six muses of Gallifrey," who exist here, and no where else).

Would it be helpful if I tried to write up a synopsis of the continuing Hoedown Saga, giving an overview of the previous 4 stories (though I don't think we did much new world building in #4)? Including where it ties into Classic and New Who, and where it spins off wildly into the Nth Dimension of the Fictiverse?

I could post it here, and link to it in tardis_hoedown's info page....

I'm reading out of curiosity but I'm not likely to participate either way luv.

Thanks for the offer though. :-)
Well, that's good to know... I often wonder who's reading (and who's just completely baffled out of their skulls). ;-)

Hey, I started this thing, and sometimes even I get lost....
I'd say you should only do it if *you* want to. It sounds like it would be a lot of work. I'm planning to read the previous Hoedowns someday. :)
Well, I was thinking of doing first... And then, I thought maybe it would be a good idea to Ask before I subjected it on poor, unsuspecting Hoedowners...

Of the 4, I think the 3rd is actually the best (and so did others; it was voted best collaborative fiction in alt.drwho.creative, in 2003, and for best individual scene in a collaborative work). That's the one that introduced Florestan / Estandre.

The 1st is mostly just a massive pile of silliness -- the big climatic scene is a pie-throwing contest, though we had one detail of world-building which carried through to the 2nd. And the 2nd turned massively dark (9/11 happened in the middle, and the whole thing was put on hold, for a while).
