Reviews For Times of Trouble

Desperate for GitF rewrite with Nine, isilienelenihin told me about this fic. I've read the entire thing about 3 times now b/c of the excellent Nine characterization.

Then she updated me with the er, update. *love* Even though you killed Jackie, you made her death reveling to the character and that's all I can ask. Bravo.

And thank you for not falling for the Mickey/Martha trap. I adore both don't get me wrong, but Mickey with Osgood? Oh, that's excellent!

*Happy Dance* now that there's an update!

Author's Response: I\'m so glad you enjoyed it, and thank you so much for the lovely review! I don\'t know why the idea of Mickey/Osgood occurred to me, but once it did it stuck >_< crackships ftw!

It is so good to see you adding to this wonderful series. Mickey and Osgood totally works! Jackie's death was heartbreaking. That white wall makes me feel melancholy even after all this time.

This is so Jackie:
"Not my girl, that's right." She smiled and brushed a stray hair back from her daughter's face. "Don't ever let him forget that under the alien hair and alien makeup you're still Jackie Tyler's daughter and you learned to slap before you could walk, yeah?"

Thanks for posting!

Author's Response: Oh good, people recognized who she was *relief*. My beta did not immediately catch it so I worried >_< Thank YOU for the comment. These things make me happier than they really ought to :)

I've been away from Teaspoon and LJ for about 2 years now and haven't looked back. All my favorite writers are gone and no one really does a good Nine anymore. When I received the email notice that this series was updated....I just kind of froze. You have no idea how many times I've come back to your wonderful series to read and reread because it's just so good.
Anyway....I'm so glad I clicked on the link and came back. Your Nine is pitch perfect along with Rose and the wonderful addition of Tommy. I always thought he would have made a wonderful companion. Thank you for continuing this series and giving Nine his due.

Author's Response: I think everyone kind of has been, sadly. I think a lot of the RTD fans were just turned off by Moffat\'s view of Who. I miss the wonderful fandom though :( This comment did make me absurdly happy, and I\'m very, very glad that you came back and read it. Doomsday should be along shortly. I...I don\'t know that I\'ll still be liked after I publish it *shifty eyes*

Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm so happy! You made my day ;) You get ninth so well, it's delightful. And WOW the ending of this one! Can wait to see more. I really liked TIP and TSP, though. Will we have the priviledge to read about Nine facing the beast as well as the loss of the TARDIS ?

Author's Response: Maybe someday? I tried so many times, but the inspiration just wasn\'t there. I wanted to write the next ones, so I decided it was better to skip it and tell some stories than none at all....

I'm really thrilled that this series is back! And a completely fantastic return. Thank you!

Oh my goodness. Oh My GOODNESS! I am so excited to see more of this series... and yet so upset about how this ended. Oh my goodness.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. And I know, I know, I know!

FINALLY! I've been waiting for so long to see this come back! And I don't really mind if you skipped TIP/TSP because hey, we WANNA know how these two "eps" play out with the Ninth Doctor. *does a scottish style happy dance*

Author's Response: Thank you so much :)

I'll start with Thank you for everything! I love this series and I'm thrilled to see another story. It's just as exciting and imaginative as the previous stories, and I can't wait to see where this goes. And... what can I say: reverse the polarity of the neutron flow!!!!

Author's Response: Hee. Thank you! I\'m so glad you liked :)
