Reviews For Symbolon

I have just read the whole series over the last couple of days. Firstly, I want to say how well written it is. There wasn't, at any time, a point where I sort of stumbled with the flow of your tale - that to me is good writing. Secondly, I loved the story itself. So well constructed - the progression was so... right. Thirdly, I don't really read 'slash' stories - just ain't my bag ( I am a total Rose/Doctor reader at heart )... but you weren't too gratuitous in your telling. It felt... appropriate. Lastly, I loved the part that Nine had to play in this ( not the sexing part per se ), the fact that he was important to all of their lives.

Sighs... I did like that... and it felt like a right and true end.

I just started reading this series - recommended by anothe who fic writer... I love it! Thank you for sharing your stories online. Its hard to find a decent series that is posted online that is complete. :)

Author's Response: Pretty much all of it was done before I started posting, IIRC, though it\'s been a while. (I spent about 2 months writing this in a huge burst). Glad you\'re enjoying it!

I just want to say that this is my Absolute Favorite all-round AU series!! I have read tons of fics but come back to this one just for sheer enjoyment. It has something for everyone! It is epic in scale, precise in detail and imagination, plus it wraps up every loose end one could think of leaving everyone happy!! I truely Love this series!! And I thought a moment to applaud your intelligent and extremely imaginative writing would not go amiss here!! :-) Thanks for a great ride Everytime I return!! :-)

Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much! What an amazing review! I\'m so glad you have enjoyed it enough to reread--as someone who is very picky about what I reread, this is just some of the highest praise I could imagine.

Out of all the stories I've read, I keep coming back to reread this one. It's simply that good. (Yes, I get squicked with the Doc/Jack and the quad later, but I overlook that for the story's sake)

Just wanted to tell you how much this story makes me feel good. =)

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it enough to keep coming back! It was a story that told itself, sometimes as a writer we make things up and sometimes they just drop into our heads wanting to be told. I don\'t normally write much slash, but in this story, it\'s just what happened and how the story wanted to be told, if that makes any sense. As a writer it\'s quite a ride, letting the words flow out of their own accord, it takes a massive leap of faith to just let it happen. But it also makes for stories that draw the reader in, that feel more \"present\" in some ways. In order to have a story that engages you that deeply, you have to take with it the parts that aren\'t comfortable or easy. Which is not a criticism, just that your comment got me thinking, because there were quite a number of points in this story where I was as surprised as anyone else at the direction the story turned. Nine, in particular, was a force of nature. Jack, also, tends to feel that way, writing him. I actually didn\'t start out planning for Jack and Donna to get together, that just happened of its own accord. There are lots of \"bits\" of this story I knew in advance, and whole vast tracts that I had no idea what was going to happen until I was writing them. I kind of love it when that happens.
