I loved this line:

"But the truth is, he has dealt with the death of innocents for far too long, and, much as he cares and tries to avoid it, it stops mattering so much.

This is a first for Rose. So he feels for her, instead."

Very astute, and bittersweet.

I saw "Life As You Know It" on lj and then came over to read this one first, and I just love it. You've got the Doctor's voice and thoughts down really perfectly, and I'm looking forward to reading all of this and then following with "Life As You Know It."

You've done a wonderful job with the subtleties of the Doctor's thoughts and his relationship with Rose, and it practically feels like a part of each episode.

Oh Doctor, since when has ignoring *anything* ever made go away? Every one of these missing scenes is so beautiful and fits into the world perfectly. That was a lovely gesture of the Doctor- and amazingly powerful of the TARDIS! So glad I found this story.

Author's Response: I\'m so glad you\'ve found it, too :D And you\'re quite right, ignoring problems never makes them go away. In fact, they usually get worse.

The emotional introspection of this chapter is beautiful. Like reading a intricately worked tapestry. Not an emotional roller-coaster, but rich and full and lush. Beautifully done.

Author's Response: Thanks. Not quite sure where the idea of making a star came from, but it had been hovering in my head for a while. Yay for this story.
