Aww wonderful!... but no suprise there considering just how wonderful the rest of this series has been too. :) Still, lovely moment between the Doctor and Rose.
Author's Response: Thanks :)
Something warm and fluffy and lovely, just what I needed to soothe the somewhat unhappy mood I'm in.
Author's Response: One cannot survive on fluff alone ... but it is good for the soul from time to time.
Lol just saw this through your lj, figured I'd review here. Love as always for your story. Definitly a very lovely scene, but your right, not sure it would've fit right in the previous story. Love that he starts taking her apart by her elements and what not.
And I think this is my all time favorite quote:
"That's your argument," said Rose, amused. "I have an appendix, therefore there is no God."
I'm sooo using that on my friends.
As always, Loved it, and I can't wait to see more!
Author's Response: He\'s analytical by nature, and she\'s amused and annoyed by that all at the same time.
This is beautiful. Lovely to catch up with them again - had been missing this universe. I love this:
"It's not mean to be comforting or un-comforting. It just is. We deal with it in our own ways. For me, I prefer to think of it as enabling. I'm in charge of my life, not some abstract deity who has to focus on everything in creation and me."
Pretty much sums up exactly how I feel about religion (or my lack of it lol).
Hope you'll revisit them here some other time.
Author's Response: I will revisit them -- I am currently wrestling with a story and have a couple of smaller one-shots floating about.
"Hazah!" said I, as I saw another wee story from you appear on the a radar - and a goodly one it is too. The Doctor feels so right when he's in "explanation" mode, but the thing that got me about this story was not that or the humour either, but the trademark Doctor-change-of-tone at the end. Very sort of sad and sweet. Great stuff!
Author's Response: He is good at making abrupt right-hand turns ... and he\'s quite the lecturer when he gets going. It is just a wee story, but I hope to have some more soon.
The beauty of your writing is that you can just picture them having that conversation. So true to the characters and their relationship (as I keep saying ;o))
Author's Response: Thanks ... glad you thought so.
I do enjoy the way you show the Doctor's love of science, and the beauties of the Universe. The appendix line was great (surprised he didn't mention the bass-ackwards wiring of the human retina, too, another fave argument of that sort), and I really got a laugh from the comment about silicon-based life forms . . . :D Also, very sweet and "real" character interactions. as always.
Author's Response: He\'s such a geek. Frankly, that\'s quite fun to write. :)
Oh, yeah! I miss you're series and your writing. Its nice to get reminded of such fullfilling pieces of work.
I hope you continue to write and you write some more soon.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you. I do have other bits and pieces to share, and a longer story in the contemplation stages.
So beautiful and tender as always. I miss reading the series regularly. Have you written others? Even in other fandoms? I would love to read them. I've read the ones here.
Author's Response: I have not -- DW was the first fandom I ever tackled. Truthfully, it\'s been years since I wrote anything but for myself.
I so, so love your 10/Rose universe. And these philosophical discussions are deep, yet silly. I really love how there's no God because she has an appendix. Nice, Doctor; real nice. ;]
Author's Response: The appendix line is a personal favorite. Hee. :)
Oh, just lovely; as, indeed, was (is, I suppose, given that I keep re-reading it) the entire series.
Thank you for sharing this.
Author's Response: I\'m touched that the series was worth a re-read ... and glad you liked this, too.
