A quick note for those of you here for my IWSG post, it's immediately below this one. However, feel free to stay for this post as well. I promise you won't regret it!
I decided to join in on the fun when I saw the announcement for the Bombshell Launch Party. This fun event is hosted by Madeleine Maddocks over at Scribble and Edit.
I'll borrow Madeleine's words to describe the spirit of this exercise:
Since there's more than one bombshell in this novel, I am organising a Bombshell Launch Party to celebrate the forthcoming release of my eBook Ultimate Sacrifice on 1st August.
If you have a blog and you'd like to take part, all you need to do is post a picture or description of your chosen person along with the bombshell you’d like to drop.
Come dressed to kill, ready to drop that bombshell on someone you have always admired, longed to meet, wish to get even with or just simply envy. It’s the chance to say what you’ve been keeping repressed (real or imagined).Sounds fun, right?
I decided to take this in a fun and fictional direction. As a science fiction writer, I like to think about the "what if's" in life. And in keeping with my science fiction tradition, I decided to pose myself this question: If I were only dating my husband and hadn't yet had kids with him, would I travel with The Doctor in the TARDIS?
For the purposes of this post, my answer is yes. Here is a picture of the man I am leaving behind in this imaginary scenario, and following is the letter I wrote to let him know.
|Don't worry, honey! I'm not actually leaving!|
I'm sorry to spring this on you, but I had no idea this was going to happen. An alien calling himself The Doctor showed up in a blue box that he calls the TARDIS. It means Time and Relative Dimension in Space. That means, in layman's terms, that his blue box can take me anywhere and anywhen.

Yes, I said "me." The Doctor told me that I'm brilliant, and he wants me to travel with him as his assistant. Now, don't get jealous. That means he wants me to help him save the universe. There are no romantic intentions on his part. After all, he's a Timelord and about 1,000 years old.
You know me. I've always wanted to see the universe, and I couldn't turn this down.
Remember, the TARDIS travels in time too, so I'll probably be back before you even notice I'm gone. I'll try to talk The Doctor into giving you a spin in it sometime. Just not right now. We had to leave fast, because something important came up. That's why I'm writing you this letter instead of saying good-bye in person. I didn't even have time to wait for you to get off work.
Again, sorry about how sudden this is, but I love you. I have to go now. I'll see you later! I promise!
