Hmmm. Perhaps the universe is telling you something doctors.. hopping between dimension is impossible with out other time lords. Funny you keep running into a "few" of em

This was soo beautiful.
The fourth Doctor's reaction to Jackie's voice, Ten's many regrets he can't talk about. Rose the playground bully.
And Four's horror at sinking so low as to ask someone twice. I can so picture Tom's egomaniac's shock at that relevation :)

Author's Response: Very cool that you could visualize it!

I really enjoyed this. Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor was a lot more cheerful and full of life than Tennant's Tenth. (Although Ten can be quite manic when he wants to, there's a sort of depressive phase he falls into as well and I am thinking during this fic he was experiencing the latter.) I thought it was interesting/sad how Ten scared poor Four away when he was just trying to be--er, trying to cheer himself up. And the whole "finding himself"/"bumping into himself" thing was interesting. The part where Four made a joke about Adric was quite heart-rending, though. And the last few lines of the fic were just... agh!

Author's Response: Aww I didn\'t mean to agh you!

I can just see little Rose torturing a boy four years her senior (if it was Mickey she was meant to be teasing). The details of this are nice - Ten being weirded out by jelly babies, Four wincing at Jackie's voice.

Author's Response: doesn\'t everybody wince at jackie\'s voice? lol

This is a lovely piece, with a mature sensibility that makes the sadness behind the picture that much more poignant. Very good.

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words.

I'm a bit too tear-chokey to leave any stellar remarks right now, but egads. Awesome job with this.

Author's Response: Oh I didn\'t mean to make you chokey!

You sort of collapsed my heart with "The other part of him had just gone inside for tea." *sigh* This was very good. Thanks for posting it.

Author's Response: thanks for reading it!

Ah my favorite two Doctors sharing a conversation. . . what's not to love? I really enjoyed this one and I can just picture this in my head along with Ten going to see Rose as a little girl.

Lovely lovely job!

Author's Response: Thanks very much! Glad you enjoyed!

Once again lovely my dear. 10 and 4 were a great mix to have meet and I like how the Doctor took on Jack's idea about watching little Rose. Loved it!
