As I've been archiving and editing much of my fanworks, I've also been working on streamlining author's notes and editing them where applicable.
In regards to The Last Light
, this is something that's always been a goal, as it at one time had perhaps the longest author's note I've ever written and not for a very good reason. Namely, The Last Light
is, to date, the single most flamed piece of fanfiction I have ever written, subject to some of the most vitrolic poison I've ever had the misfortune to witness in over two decades of interaction with fandoms online.
And I completely
understand why: it's a tragic horror
that paints Sailor Cosmos in an unsettling and terrible light against the backdrop of a missing scene in Doctor Who
. Of the existing Doctor Who/Sailor Moon
crossovers out there, The Last Light
is the only one to paint a meeting of these two worlds as such and it is not
something that sits well with some fans of the Sailor Moon
That doesn't mean I approve or tolerate the abuse I've gotten for writing it.
Worse, it makes trimming down the author's notes on that story quite... difficult
