 I really need to spend today sending off job applications, but GUESS WHAT?

A week or so ago I posted a new Doctor Who fic that I had spent weeks working on and was disappointed initially when hardly anyone seemed to read it; I had a handful of kudoses but wandered if perhaps there was something wrong with it. Then a couple of days later, I got a really nice review and bookmark for the story, which cheered me up no end. The Ao3 user also went on to comment on my other Doctor Who fic and it was all so positive it made my day, although much to my shame I need to sit down and actually respond to people's comments.

Fast-forward to yesterday and I was chatting to a colleague who recently joined our workplace and we got onto the topic of writing. She told me she wrote fanfiction, which I high-fived her for and we were talking about fandoms. I asked if she was on Ao3 and she told me she was, so I asked what her username was. She told me and my jaw hit the floor.

IT WAS HER.

SHE WAS THE ONE WHO LEFT THE REVIEW.

I immediately went into meltdown - well, we both did - high-fived each other, squealed and I thanked her from the bottom of my heart. She was utterly amused by the fact that I was brosle-cub12 and we just chatted happily. I found it really reassuring to have someone I could talk to about in depth, because I'd had a peek at her stories and they are truly fantastic! It's nice to have someone who gets it. We swapped notes on what we liked to write; I shared with her my love for genderswap and romance and platonic things and she praised me. She herself writes really excellent asexual/aromantic fics.

Aaaah... what a day. :D
