Reviews For They Say

This fic is so perfect. Not only do you so brilliantly create this legend of Earth (I love the bit about it being on the edge of Sontaran space and marked covertly as bad idea, that is so Sontaran-y!), but also the framing story of the slave and the prince and everything is so quickly and deftly sketched in and is so easily imaginable. Somehow it feels like an episode of Doctor Who, even as familiar characters are no where to be seen! You just captured the heart of Doctor Who. This story really sticks in the mind long after reading it, so thank you very much for this beautiful work.

Brilliant and beautiful.

Author's Response: Thank you!

Ohhh, this is fantastic. A legend born from legend. Because of the Doctor's protection, Earth itself is a legend. Kinda love that. The truth of it and the fierce hope. Thank you for this...



Author's Response: *HUGS* Glad you liked! Stories that grow out of stories . . . had to write it once it occurred to me.

Oh, that's just brilliant. I came here via Calufrax, and I'm glad I did. It really shows a picture of who the Doctor is - and, not incidentally, just how badly things could have gone for Earth had he not chosen it as his place to defend. I love it.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! When I first finished the story, I remember looking it over and thinking, \"Okay, I have now written a piece of fanfic that never actually mentions the Doctor.\" But somehow it managed to be a portrait of him all the same. (Now, if I could figure out how I pulled that off . . . :) )

Just to let you know, I think this story is great. The picture it presents of the Doctor's universe and the footprint he leaves upon it is wonderful stuff, really. So here it is on Calufrax:


Author's Response: Whoa, thanks so much! I never respond because I get stage fright and am not sure what to say, but I always get a thrill and a big grin when I see one of my stories on Calufrax.

I found this piece originally via TV Tropes Recommedations page for Doctor Who--and it was well worth the reading, definately.

Author's Response: I am quite unreasonably proud of the fact that I got mentioned MULTIPLE TIMES on the TVtropes rec page. Glad you liked!

There can be only one response to this story:




Author's Response: And by more than just the Doctor; by many of the people he\'s touched.

This is wonderful. I love myth, and I love the Doctor being one. :)

Author's Response: Thank you!

Oh, this is excellent. I look forward to reading more in this series.

Author's Response: Thanks! I have a bad habit of not planning very far ahead, but I definitely intend to oblige.

That was most excellent... very, very clever... brilliant, one might say!

Author's Response: Thanks!

This is great. Really well done. I love it when people take a look at things from a different angle. :)

Author's Response: Thanks!

This. Was. Perfect. I love outsider POVs on the Doctor and his relationship with Earth. And this...this was beautiful - he still brings Hope, he still brings Peace to those seeking it. I hope this alien makes it there - I really do.



Author's Response: *hugs back* He makes *good* differences, even at a remove, doesn\'t he?

This was excellent! :D I haven't seen all of Classic Who. Was this referencing a specific episode towards the end, with the highness quote?

I love the idea that Earth has developed a mythical reputation as both a danger zone and a sanctuary! :D

Author's Response: No, this isn\'t referencing any specific episode. I had vague ideas about the character hearing the story, but nothing that\'s made it into fic form yet. And, I\'m glad you liked it!
