This is fantastic! I especially love how you gave Rose a bigger part in the plot, instead of basically pushing her to the side like the actual episode did. And the way Nine got back to Rose! I love it.

That was beautiful... much like a certain "An Education", this is part of my personal canon now.

I loved the bit about it being seven years. It was so perfect - I can see the Doctor doing whatever it takes to get back to his TARDIS and Rose.

Author's Response: Thank you!!

Oh, I like that version much better than the episode, at least in the resolution between the Doctor and Rose. Then again, their relationship in this series is very different.

The appearance of Jack! That shocked me. I was so annoyed by John Hart showing up that I resented it, until you had Rose make the offhand comment about the Agency not wiping his memory and leaving him in 1941 London. Rose is a stronger woman than I for resisting that temptation.

Author's Response: Hehe, you don\'t watch Torchwood at all I take it? John Hart is actually a semi-recurring character, an old partner of Jack\'s. Rose was just being silly. :) Thanks for the review, I\'m glad you liked it!

well that was definately different. i had been wondering if the disappearence of mickey ment the reappearence of jack-but we got a stand in and john. i wonder though if this means we see them again or it was just a spot meating. so two weeks vs seven years. interesting change. and it had an endearing end.

Author's Response: Thanks :-D

Oh, this was *awesome*. I love the changes you're making.

Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you like it :)

I say option B unless you like cliffhangers. Then I'd say A. But it's up to you; I'll read it either way! This was far superior to the actual episode! I have to ask...was John's "partner" Jack?

Of course she'd wait! This is just so perfect. And honestly, could it really have been just 7 & 1/2 hours? The way he drives? Just perfect! Love your 9, you write him so well!

Author's Response: Thank you! Rise of the Cybermen has actually already been rewritten (\'If Man Is Still Alive\', on here) and I\'m working on Age of Steel (which will be \'If Woman Can Survive\') but hopefully it\'ll be done in not toooooo terribly long. Oh, and it won\'t affect the story in any way at all, but as far as I\'m concerned, yes, it was Jack :)

I really liked this but it's so sad that the Doctor was stuck in the past for 7 years..:( poor him.. can't wait for the next story though.. :)

Author's Response: Poor Doctor, his life just continues to suck. It will get better though!.....for a while....

This is a remarkably well done re-imagining of GitF with Nine. You have his voice, and you have shown Rose's generous nature, something that a lot of people didn't catch in the episode. Thank you!

Author's Response: Aww, thank you!

Hmmm... So far so good. The Doc better doesn't make Rose wait for five and the half hours again, now that they seem to be a little more friendly toward each other. I noticed you added 'Romance' in the genres section.

Author's Response: No, no five and a half hours this time, definitely not. Romance? Did I do that? *halo* It\'s getting there ;)

Good excuses, all. I promise to wait patiently and not to harrass you for more stories.


Again, great twist on the tale, nice job portraying their relationship. Looking forward to the rest!

Author's Response: Hey, harrass all you want, it makes me write faster! :-D Yay, thanks! The next part probably won\'t be up until late tomorrow night or Tuesday morning...depends on when the \'net gets turned on at my new place. Eiher way, it\'s coming! :)
