Wow. That was...interesting. Very interesting. And completely believable. The show lost something by not exploring Lucy Saxon a bit more, I think. Just because she's the definition of the gray area, so she's a bit hard to grasp. We could tell she wasn't happy, because (if I remember correctly) she never really smiled. But...maybe it was just me, but I didn't really understand her when I watched the show. This helped tremendously. Thanks!

Author's Response: She\'s an interesting character. I think the show had to read carefully due to the fact that it\'s a family show, and Lucy was so clearly in a not family-friendly situation. But the little they implied was chilling enough.

Hmmm....interesting.
Really interesting look into Lucy's way of looking at the world.

Author's Response: Thanks! She\'s a very interesting character, isn\'t she?

This entire series is so head-canon for me now. It's really just amazing. I normally hate reading Lucy Saxon fic, and you made her so very REAL that I ended up both empathizing with her and yet hating her a little bit more. Loved it so much. :)

Author's Response: I\'m so thrilled you liked it, especially if you hate Lucy Saxon fic normally. One of my biggest goals was to make her a real person, not black or white, but very, very grey. Just because a person is not evil doesn\'t mean that they are necessarily likeable. I\'m so glad you felt that in the story. And the fact that the series is in your head-canon makes me SO very happy!

Absolutely magnificent. I am just gobsmacked.

Author's Response: Aw, yay! That means SO much to me, and I\'m glad it had that effect on you!

This is so great. The Doctor would offer comfort to anyone and that's probably one of his best qualities. :) I'm glad you wrote it so well, and the fact that he doesn't hate the Master.

Author's Response: He really would comfort anyone, no matter what, and that\'s why we love him! Thanks for the review! :D
