Am seriously considering tying Past Tense into the wider Marvel 'verse (no spiderman or fantastic four though, I hate those guys), but Avengers is seriously tempting.

WTF brain? I always loathed that whole 'shared world' shite.

I had this story all planned out long before I wrote it, planned to the last detail. Do you know how boring it is writing something you know to the last detail? So I scrapped the lot and I'm letting Erik and Charles decide what they're doing. I have only the vaguest idea where this is going, but the ride should be interesting. So here's the latest installment from our favourite traumatised mutants.

... Either I'm a far better writer than I knew, or these people have been horrendously failed by Higher Education History.

You know, I'm feeling a lot more positive about this Holocaust Studies shtik.

That film's only been out three days and already Past Tense is being pelted with faves on ff.net.

I guess I'm finally going to write Present Perfect. It'll keep me rolling until I finish editing AIoM.

This will be the last chapter of Past tense. Thank you to al who have followed it this far, I hope you have found it as rewarding as I have. The story will be continued in the sequel: Present Perfect.

Money spent: I don't want to know. Easily in the thousands.

Time spent: This year, most all of last year and half of the year before. Two years and growing.

Books read: I have no idea. Climbing to three digits, if not there already.

Films seen: Easily a dozen, probably more.

Stories written: Far fewer than I could have. I was trying to challenge myself. However, if it all went tits-up, I knew I could always rely on this.

Trips taken: Two in a year, three if you count this one. Insane considering I'm doing this on a student's budget.

Themed visits:
Imperial War Museum (countless)
Jewish museum (1)
Madjanek (1)
Auschwitz (2)
Plazow (1)
Therizenstadt (1)
Mauthausen (1)
Dachau (1)
Buchenwald (1)
Sachenhausen (1)

Other: Learning German in order to read more books.

Enough. Enough. This is devouring my life, and there is no end to it. When the Past Tense bunnies bit, I never imagined it could lead to this. I wanted to be a writer. Now I want to be a historian. I remember the first Holocaust book I picked up. I can even name it, because I've since bought it. 'Auschwitz and After', by Charlotte Deboe. I picked it up the year before last while working as a data collector. I'd reached my quota and hid in the library of the small town we were raking over.

Two years. That September I went to the Imperial War Museum for the first time, bought the little notebook that has since become my lucky charm and wrote about the Holocaust for the first time. Past Tense notes. The next year I saw the camps for the first time. No idea what'll happen this year.

Happy birthday.
