It's the end of Sarah Jane Adventures...this calls for podfic!

Oh look, Bess is posting podfic. That's new and different, right? *g*

Sooo...backstory. For those of you who don't know? I am a Whovian. Like, a srs bsns, have-seen-tons-of-classic-series and listen-to-Big-Finish-Audios and spend-hundreds-of-dollars-on-cosplay Whovian. So naturally, I also watched both Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures. I'm going to ignore Torchwood here, because that is a whole can of worms that this post is DEFINITELY NOT ABOUT XD

This post is about The Sarah Jane Adventures.

When I first started watching it--during season 1, of course--I was like, "hey, this show is cute! And of course Lis Sladen is amazing as usual." (And also I thought Tommy Knight was adorable and I kind of wanted to give him hugs and feed him cookies and make him date my sister. All of these things are pretty much still true XD)

That was really about it. I just thought it was a cute, kid-friendly addition to the Whoniverse. And then one day, a couple years later, I was looking at paperclipbitch's masterlist, and went, "oh look, she wrote SJA fic! Huh, Clyde/Luke? ...WHY HAVE I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE, OH MY GOD YES!!!!" The damage was done--my little OTP-ish heart was already in overdrive. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot of [good] fic out there for these two, but luckily, Jenn has written quite a few gems in this fandom, and the story below--which was written in response to the season 4 opener, when Luke goes off to college--remains my favorite.

With the last episode EVER of Sarah Jane Adventures airing this week--for those of you living under a rockunaware, Elizabeth Sladen, the amazing actress who played Sarah Jane Smith for nearly 40 years, passed away last April, cutting short the filming of season 5 of SJA--and also Jenn having a shitty day yesterday, it seemed the perfect time to post this.
