To my readers of The Other Companion:
I deeply, sincerely apologize for how I've been neglecting you. I should upload chapters more often, and don't really have an excuse, aside from college work. Anyway, I am temporarily putting the story on official hiatus, while I figure out exactly what is going to happen. When it comes back, though, (and it will) updates will be MUCH more frequent, and the sequel(s) will also be posted more regularly. In the meantime, PLEASE leave me a review, they make my hearts feel warm and fuzzy and are greatly beneficial to the story. If you have any ideas, kindly let me know.
"Do not put statements in the negative form. And don't start sentences with a conjunction. If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing. Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do. Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all. De-accession euphemisms. If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is. Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky. Last, but nor least, avoid cliches like the plague." William Safire, "Great Rules of Writing"
"Toa! Hey, that's great, I've always wanted to be a Toa! Just one question: What's a Toa?"
“One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. Goodbye, my dear. Goodbye, Susan."
-First Doctor, "Doctor Who"
“There are corners of the universe which breed the most terrible things. Things which go against everything we believe in. They must be fought.”
-Second Doctor, "Doctor Who"
"Courage isn't just a matter of not being frightened, you know. It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway, regardless of the fear."
-Third Doctor, "Doctor Who"
“There's no point being grown-up if you can't be childish sometimes.”
“For some people, small, beautiful events are what life is all about.”
-Fifth Doctor, "Doctor Who"
"Planets come and go. Stars perish. Matter disperses, coalesces, forms into other patterns, other worlds. Nothing can be eternal."
-Sixth Doctor, "Doctor Who"
"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold.”
“I love humans. Always seeing patterns in things that aren't there.”
-Eighth Doctor, "Doctor Who"
"Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame."
-War Doctor, "Doctor Who"
“You let one of them go, but that's nothing new. Every now and then a little victim spared, because she smiled, 'cos he's got freckles, 'cos they begged. And that's how you live with yourself, that's how you slaughter millions. Because once in a while, on a whim, if the wind's blowing in the right direction, you happen to be kind.”
-Ninth Doctor, "Doctor Who"
“You need to get yourself a better dictionary. When you do, look up "genocide". You'll find a little picture of me there, and the caption'll read "Over my dead body!”
-Tenth Doctor, "Doctor Who"
"All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one Merry Galel. And there will never be another. Getting rid of that existence isn't a sacrifice, it's a waste!"
-Eleventh Doctor, "Doctor Who"
"Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing."
"Secret, shall I tell you? Grand Master of Jedi Order am I. Won this job in a raffle, I did, think you? How did you know, how did you know, Master Yoda? Master Yoda knows these things. His job it is."
-Yoda, Yoda: Dark Rendezvous
"There's always a bigger fish."
-Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
"If it's not too much of a cliche, take me to your leader. If it is too much of a cliche, take me anyway."
-Luke Skywalker, Star Wars: Shadows of Mindor
"Hermione, I hate to tell you this, but I think they might have noticed we broke into Gringotts."
-Ron Weasley, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
"Oh, yeah, the Death Eaters would love to have me. We'd be best mates if they didn't keep trying to do me in."
-Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Pretty much anything that comes out of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Strax, or Dooku's mouth, because they're awesome. Period.

Stuff I'm working on:
Harry Potter and the Story of the Other Guy: A parallel Harry Potter story, told from the perspective of an OC the year above Harry and co, covering the year before Harry's first year to after Book 7. I'll be posting it up in chapters sometime soon, but I've still got a lot to write, and I don't like to post stories until they're at least mostly done. Right now, I'm well over halfway through OoTP, so it'll be a while, but I will put it up, I promise.
