ha ha, Pond Life  
(Any time anyone official refers to "the Ponds" or "the Pond family," it just makes me really happy.)

I...might be more excited about this "Pond Life" mini-adventure than I am about the premiere of series 7? (Excited and WORRIED, but I won't stop being worried until I know what's going to happen to my beloved Ponds, so. If all turns out well, I'm sure I'll be retroactively excited about series 7, when I'm not worrying anymore. And if bad things happen, I suppose it won't matter.) And I love it when the everyday gets a look-in in the middle of the fantastic, so this is right up my alley anyway, Ponds or not.

Also, Arthur and Karen remain adorable.

I did not know about this, but now I am excited.

I'm fascinated by the idea of people living their lives after having adventures.

Me too! The story so often ends when the adventures do, but I always want to know more about how the characters readjust to the ordinary world or see it differently.

I feel the same way. I would love to see a series about, say, a daring young woman who saved the world, and now has to live in it.

I've seen that idea as parody, or in the background, but I can't think of many works that focus on it

Now I am in a google document, trying to figure out how this sort of story would work. I suppose I won't be accomplishing anything at work today.

Oops, sorry! :) I know there are some "after the fairy tale" stories, but I can't think of any "after the adventure" ones, either.

I'm on it!
This sounds like a genre waiting to hit the mainstream!

Re: I'm on it!
Hee, godspeed! I think it's a fascinating idea, to bump the traditional "action" offstage in order to focus on the recovery - but without being a post-apocalyptic story, where there is usually some other save-the-world plot happening anyway.

I hope we get to see the mini-episodes on BBC America as well.

Yes, me too! On the one hand, BBC America certainly seems to be aware of the show's US following, and even cultivating it, which bodes well; but on the other hand, they haven't made any announcement... I can't remember now whether they put the series 6 prequels up on the website, or just on the DVDs.

Aw, those sound wonderful, I really hope I get to see them. :-)
