The Age of Paradox: Book Two- The World of Paradox by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 1] Printer Chapter or Story

1. Starship UK by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 1] (3071 words)
Disclaimer: I don't own what you recognise; the drill should be familiar to you by now

Feedback: I'd appreciate it; I'm trying to do something a bit different here

AN: The second story in my 'Age of Paradox' AU, featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy travelling together in a world where Faction Paradox survived the Eighth Doctor's destruction of Gallifrey in 'The Ancestor Cell', with the result that the Doctor spent his last few lives mostly alone until he met Amy (For the record, the War Doctor and the Tenth Doctor's half-regeneration in 'Journey' End' didn't happen here, so the Eleventh Doctor is just the Eleventh Doctor; might not be a big detail, but I thought it best to say that now)

2. Very Old, Very Kind, and the Very Last by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (4103 words)
AN: Just to reassure people, I am planning to diverge more from canon as time goes on; right now I'm just establishing the Doctor and Amy's new dynamic in this new timeline by exploring how canon has been altered in more subtle ways by looking at some of the more interesting episodes, and then I'll get on to some original storylines.

3. The Home Box by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2506 words)
AN: OK, we're going into the alternate 'Time of Angels'/'Flesh and Stone' here, so before anyone starts making comments about how I erased Mels from existence in the original story, I assure you all that I do have a plan; for now, all you need to know that temporal complications involving her Time Lord heritage have resulted in River Song still existing despite Mels having been erased when the Doctor returned for Amy ahead of schedule, and more details will be revealed as the series unfolds.

AN 2: In advance, I will be sticking with some of my own thoughts on River; I apologise in advance to any die-hard fans of her out there, but there were certain aspects of her character I just didn't like even in canon, and my plan for her in this series is going to be particularly complicated…

4. The Maze of the Dead by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (4462 words)
AN: In advance to anyone who wonders about the differences between Amy's actions here and what she did in canon- all other changes tie in to that change; I think the result works- keep in mind that this version of Amy has spent the last few years 'training' to be the Doctor's companion; she still enjoys her travels, but she's more serious about it and has a clearer idea what she can do to aid her friend in a crisis (And the Eleventh Doctor's had the chance to 'mature' a bit as well as opposed to his original approach; having to act as Amy's responsible teacher has given him some new priorities)

5. Onto the Byzantium by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2933 words)
AN: Sorry this chapter took a while; with the Angel in Amy's eye no longer an issue, I had to put some thought into adjusting the subsequent storyline appropriately…

6. Through the Forest by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3480 words)
AN: One of the episodes that diverged from canon more than I expected; really, you wouldn't believe how many things can be amended simply because I stopped that Angel getting into Amy's eye

7. An Anomaly in Venice by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2441 words)
AN: Another episode rewrite, as the Doctor and Amy experience the events of 'Vampires of Venice' without Rory; hope you enjoy what I have planned

8. Confronting the Calvierris by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3056 words)
AN: Hope this chapter goes down well; Amy's confrontation with Signora Calvierri was trickier to adapt than I expected (For the record, the Doctor's efforts to sneak into the school via the lower passageways worked out the same as in canon, apart from the obvious detail that he wasn't accompanied by Rory)

9. The Two Falls by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2598 words)

10. Outside the Universe by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3738 words)

11. Meeting the TARDIS by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2910 words)

12. Talking with the TARDIS by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (4310 words)
AN: Hope you enjoy this chapter (I skipped over the Doctor's talk with Uncle and Auntie, but it was just the same as it was in canon and covered nothing you didn't know already); a few more divergences from canon, as Amy finds herself facing additional threats in the House-TARDIS, and the Doctor has a few things to say to the human-TARDIS about its role in creating this new timeline…

13. Shifting Fears by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (4465 words)

14. Anomalous Artwork by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2030 words)
AN: A shorter start, but I hope you'll find the overall plot interesting (And I CAN promise you an original story arc once this one's over)…

15. A Day with Vincent by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3843 words)

16. Pleasant Reunion, Shocking Request by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2439 words)

17. The Dark Request by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2237 words)

18. Back to Skaro by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (1607 words)

19. Outside the Hatchery by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2441 words)

20. The Insanity of Davros by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3406 words)

21. Preservation of Destruction by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3215 words)

22. The Land of Dreams by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2391 words)
AN: Not my best chapter, but I felt that the events of this episode merited a rewrite considering the nature of the Doctor's main adversary in this storyline

23. The Other Doctor by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (1782 words)
AN: A bit of a twist here, but considering that we all know what the Dream Lord really was, I felt that it would be a nice opportunity to incorporate my personal favourite into this story.

24. The Truth Behind the Dream by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2997 words)

25. Old Victory, New Nightmare by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (1996 words)

26. The Secrets of Uxaerius by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2521 words)

27. The Daughter, the Cult and the Crack by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2978 words)

28. Naming the Daughter by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2418 words)
AN: Thanks to the stargate time traveller for suggesting the new name for the Doctor's daughter; I had my own idea, but once his suggestion was brought up, it just felt right, both for the reasons Amy reveals here and my own personal fondness for it

29. The Shaking Earth by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2055 words)

30. From Beneath by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (3491 words)

31. Into the Earth by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (1858 words)

32. Pleas Against War by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2798 words)
AN: Once again, a few scenes have been skipped to focus on what was actually changed from canon, but I make reference to what happened in them anyway, and I hope you enjoy the results

AN 2: It comes up as a brief reference later in this chapter, so I'll just reiterate this now; in this timeline, the Doctor never regenerated into his War incarnation, and the Tenth Doctor never had his half-regeneration, so the Eleventh Doctor still has two regenerations left to him even if he naturally doesn't want to use them

33. The Silurian Conference by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (5305 words)
AN: Sorry this one took a while; it was a tricky rewrite for several reasons, but I think the final result is worth it

34. Changes in November by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 0] (2963 words)
AN: This begins a major 'mini-arc' of this series that will explore one of my favourite fictional concepts once this immediate crisis has been dealt with; hope you enjoy what's coming up…
