Oh my God. I really don't know how long it will take me to get over it. I've read the the trilogy which is utterly amazing, extremely well-written and left me in tears more times that I would like to admit and this - this is just not meant to be read by anyone who wants to stay sane. I can't even think clearly now. There is no way I could express how much I admire your writing. It's just disturbingly vivid. You are amazing.

Author's Response: This is literally the only thing I've posted on here that I refused to let my mother read. :\

Sorry about the emotional anguish this has caused. Thanks for reading in spite of it!

Very, very dark stuff. But, unlike many other angst writers, you manage to capture the Doctor's emotions perfectly. The Doctor normally doesn't cry; he keeps his emotions under lock and key, but after he was freaking VIVISECTED, who wouldn't cry for a couple hours?
I actually managed to keep a straight face until the last section.
"She doesn’t understand. Doesn't know what it is or what it means, or if it’s even real. But nevertheless, it breaks her heart. Reminds her of what is happening…and where she is. And where he is."
Heartbreaking. You are able to describe so many emotions in so few words... that's the talent of a good writer.


Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much.

The Doctor\'s emotions are one of my biggest challenges in these stories, mostly because I never want to lose his character even when things are at their absolute worst. But this story is on a level of darkness that even I\'d never explored at this depth, and after that level of pain and suffering, it felt very right to me that the Doctor wouldn\'t be able to block it out anymore.

And Rose\'s little section is what capped off the pain of this story for me as well. I\'m glad you thought it spoke as loudly as I intended it to. Thanks for taking the time to read and review!

I tried not to read this, but the temptation was too strong. But, everything else you've written doesn't seem that bad after this.

Excuse me while I cry. Really and truly. Well done.

Author's Response: Yeah. This is pretty much the darkest of the dark. (Though I think some of the lowest moments in MoM might have come close for sheer emotional damage.) I don\'t quite know where I come up with this stuff. But I\'m glad you found it well done, at least.

Wow. That was amazing. When the Doctor realized that the people in the autopsy room didn't care about him and that had hurt him more than what had been done to him before was stunning.
The live vivisection confirms the woman's insanity and inhumanity. Well done. Thanks!


Author's Response: So glad you liked it!!! She really is insane, and the more I write about her, the more I realize it.

Oh. My. God.

Dunno what else to say.

Author's Response: Yeah...I don\'t know where I come up with this stuff...

That is some seriously dark, gnarly mojo right there...and rather fantastically written, I might add. Powerful, very powerful.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m glad you thought so!
