Nice! This is probably the most original of the Doomsday re-writes I've read. Interesting, never really thought of the TARDIS as a companion.
Author's Response: She\'s not necessarily a companion, but she is definitely a character. Eventually these alt!ends will get there... but the laptop I\'ve been writing on has been absconded with. I\'m genuinely sorry. (But I love your work. Thanks for all these reviews - I was so happy when Gmail told me I had some.)
Author's Response: Yeah, but switched Ten needed a reciprocal, and I always kinda wondered what would happen if Rose had just fallen, and not been picked up. I\'d read some interesting things (one of them involved Jello... o.o).
Excellent voice of the Doctor. Brilliant.
Author's Response: Thanks - this one took a while to write, but there\'s melancholy Ten, and I guess that\'s something almost easy to write.
That's a very nicely done 'ficisation' of the ending of Doomsday. I can see it happening before me as I read the words. Going on to alternates now and looking forward to them. Great stuff.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks - I agonized forever trying to do it (there is only so much you can do with transcripts. O.o\").
Ah crap *needs kleenex*
and this after the authors notes (particularly the part about getting giddy off youtube; I can relate) made me roll around in laughter.
Author's Response: Haha, I don\'t cry, but that\'s just \'cos I wrote it. (I seriously do; I could spend all day on YouTube and not watch the same Who-related video twice.) Glad I could amuse.
Oh no, I'm sorry if I gave you that impression! I like it! I only cry over things I like-even if I like them in a "That's so sad!" way. Like, I liked Doomsday...but not in the usual sense. I liked the lines, the writing...but I hated the plot because Rose and the Doctor got torn apart. That's all. I like your story though, it was just sad. And if it makes you feel any better, I needed tissues for Doomsday too...:(
Author's Response: Yeah, thought that was what you meant. (SO NOT IN A MEAN WAY!) I cried, and then, when my brother watched it again on TiVo, and I was eating breakfast...all I had to do was HEAR it and I cried... so\'s, I know what you mean by the cryage. On a bad day, just listening to the song from the soundtrack can get me.
Gah! *sob* I need my tissues! *runs off to get a giant box of tissues*
Author's Response: It\'s not that bad, is it? (I hope not, or else I\'d better just give up now :D) Sorry, really, about the confusion earlier.
I'm confuzzled...maybe I missed something, but it seemed the same as the regular Doomsday...
Author's Response: It is. It\'s entitled the original ending. Beg pardon if I confuzzled you beyond reason. I look to have the next chapter up tomorrow. It\'s a real chapter, I promise. Actually.... *mischevious glint* I might be able to put it up tonight. Sorry for the confusion, though.
Very long intro!! I feel very sorry you living in America and all... im not gonna mock you and say 'series 3 is great!!!' and all that, though it is, but thats a different matter! Anyways... great idea, can't wai to actually read the re-writes!! lol!
Author's Response: Yeah, I felt so bad tacking the long intro onto the original ending that I hammered (and still hammering, *wince*, should be doing that now) into a fic-form, so I made it its own chapter. So, soon as I put the original up, y\'all can get chap one.
