A really beautiful piece that captures both the relationship between 11 & Rory and the pain that the Doctor keeps inside.

I loev the way you use Rory's background as a nurse to get the Doctor to open up to him and just talk.

Great piece.

Oh this was a wonderful delight I am so glad you found DW and I found your writing! Spot on, and I love that you included Verity. The TARDIS really is a dear and takes care of our Doctor even when he doesn't realize it completely, like bring him to Amy and Rory.

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you enjoyed the story!

In light of Cold Blood (which just aired in America Saturday) this made me cry!! Your Rory was very much in character--I really could imagine this happening on the show. It sucks that we never really got to see this kind of interaction between them on the show. Still, I hope he comes back. Really really good job. I miss Rory.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I wrote this before the two-parter had aired and so I was unaware of the emotional punch this had the potential to deliver. I\'m glad that you enjoyed it, either way.

Absolutely lovely. I think you've captured 11's voice perfectly, and Rory's reactions are absolutely *him*. I especially liked Rory's perception of the Doctor changing from 'carefree and careless with people' to 'damaged and can't look back'... excellent writing. Favouriting this, look forward to more!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I think that Eleven has healed somewhat, but I do think that certain things (like the Dream Lord\'s taunting) would lead him to get all broody and nostalgic and I think that Rory is perceptive enough to discern why.

I really liked your story, nice entry into DW fanfic writing. Just enough pathos without being too touchy feely. Keep up the good work :) DC

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I really enjoyed writing this and I hope to write more DW in the future.

Sweet story. Love how you have included the TARDIS as a character. Cheers, James.

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m a big fan of spaceships being thier own characters (Enterprise from Star Trek, Serenity from Firefly), so I really love the TARDIS and wanted to make her a real part of the story.

I love the way you write Rory and Eleven and their interaction. This is a really sweet story, well done. :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I really love Rory and Eleven\'s dynamic and I wanted to explore it. I\'m hoping that I\'ll have cause to explore it more by the end of Series 5.

Love the way you've written Rory and Eleven.

I think Rory will be good for the Doctor and for Amy.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I agree that Rory is good for the Doctor and Amy. With how whimsical and flighty the Doctor and Amy can be, Rory is more of a stable and calming influence.

Well, I started to enjoy it until I realized there are tiny spoilers for episodes that hadn't aired here in the US. So for now, I have to set it aside. Once we're caught up, I'll look for it again.

May I suggest adding a spoiler warning to any future stories you may right?


Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m so sorry for not posting a spoiler warning and I appreciate you being so kind about the issue. I added a spoiler warning, so this hopefully won\'t be an issue for anyone else.

welcome to the world of DW fiction. this is exactly the kind of semi-nostalgic character piece that I like. The use of Rory instead of Amy adds a great deal to the proceedings. Your Eleven almost has the right mix of sadness and madness. He seems to be missing something, I'm not sure what, but that's alright. I think that in the future Matt will have the same reputation of Tom and Pat as being notoriously difficult to capture in print. You've made one of the best attempts I've seen. More please.



Author's Response: Thank you! Matt\'s Doctor is hard to capture and I wonder if it has something to do with how physical he is in the role. I\'m hoping to improve my characterization of Eleven in the future. And of course, I\'m hoping to write more Rory.
