i agrée with one of the comment saying this chapter should have a non-con tag….i wasn’t mentally prepared for the rape of the Doctor….
i logged in just to comment lol just to say that i hate Sister Melina with a passion!! i think the last character i hated that much was Professor Dolores Ombrage from Harry Potter…..arrrgh i hope she gets what’s coming for her!!
This seems like it could have earned a non-con tag. So far there's been a lot of questionable consent issues for both our heroes. Not yucking anyone's yum, of course. I have a feeling it all works out...
So about a year ago I was new to all this and madly googling my Doomsday feelings and started finding these amazing fics - and this was one of the first ones I ever found. The other day I started flashing on scenes of this story and became *consumed* with finding it, but could not remember the name! (I also hadn't seen the 50th at the time or I would definitely have remembered Sisterhood of Karn. I'd love to know what you thought of them showing up there!!) I went through my now huge favorites list, every bookmark, saved rec lists, scrolling through pages and pages of Teaspoon postings from that time period, and eventually tried to re-create my first google searches to figure out how in the world I first ran across this, and that's what finally worked! (In the process I've discovered the scenery and vibe of this story is pretty unusual.)
I just re-read it all and it's just as wonderful as I'd remembered! I also realized a lot of my favorite headcanons started here. Oh, this story - the bedsharing, the aphrodisiac, accidental-on-purpose bonding, the weakened and hurt Doctor, the evil violator Melina getting owned...it's just too delicious. I am thrilled to have found more stories in the same 'verse and can't wait to take it all in! You really got under my skin. Thanks for this!
I read this fic ages ago and loved rereading it. Brilliant story!
I was recommended this story by a good friend. We both write strong TenRose love and loyalty, and your firm grasp on it here made for a very enjoyable read. The details of characterization, thoughts in situations, and description of environment solidify and support the rather audacious plot device, which makes it all the more fulfilling a read in the end. Well done, and thank you very much!
I'm so sad to come to the end of this fic! The writing was beautifully done and it was really different than a lot of fics I've read. Thank you for giving me something to stay up till 4:00 in the morning reading :)
Also, in my head, I kept picturing the Sisterhood of Karn as the maidens in Castle Anthrax from Monty Python and the Holy Grail and laughing to myself. >.
I loved this story! Thanks so much for writing it. It was really well written and thought out and the scenes between Rose and the Doctor were just beautiful. Your ideas of how he becomes aroused by having his barriers down are very original. You are very talented and I hope to see you come back to the series eventually. I am hesitant to start the sequel since it is unfinished and hasn't been updated for the past few years (have become too frustrated in the past with other stories doing that) but I might not be able to resist as I really want to know what happens for them next.
Gorgeous story - I read it all in one sitting, and couldn't put it down. I just loved the telepathic bonding/mating twist, and how the entire plot felt like one of the classic serials (albeit a deliciously naughty one, lol). The sisterhood also made for some intriguing, interesting antagonists - I love how they still managed to be sympathetic and likeable, despite their questionable methods. And Rose and the Doctor, of course, were brilliant as always.
Thanks so much for writing it!! Now I'm just praying you have more stories for me to devour next!! ^_^
Wow, this was a really great story. Now I want to find the Brain of Morbius--I really hope I got that title right-- and see what happened there. I saw there's a sequel, off to read it.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. \'Brain of Morbius\' is one of my favorite Fourth Doctor stories - here\'s a few links: http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/brainmorbius/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Brain_of_Morbius I\'m really hoping that the Sisters will turn up again at some point in the new series - they\'ve returned in some of the Big Finish audios, so I can dream, right? :)
I just read this story for the first time, and just...WOW! I absolutely loved it! The plot itself was interesting, and I really enjoyed how you managed to work in some elements from Classic Who. What I loved the most, however, was how you wrote Rose and the Doctor and the relationship between them. Just fantastic - definitely a new favorite!
Author's Response: Hello - thought your username looked a bit familiar, then I looked back through my recent fic reads - loved your \'Thirty Four Degrees Celsius\' on LJ and commented as such. Thanks very much for *your* kind comment - glad you liked it. :)
Oh my God. That was just ... Well! There's not much you can say to that, is there? Except POOR ROSE. Oh God that must have been horrible, having to watch that, so heart-breaking seeing him... Oh god. It just makes me feel sick.
HE'D BETTER MAKE IT UP TO HER. That's all I'm saying.
Author's Response: I\'m actually happy reading how disgusted you were with this chapter - it means it had the intended effect. Unfortunately, Rose really isn\'t sure if he was play-acting or not, and you the reader really aren\'t in a better position, if you happened to read the missing chapter, \'The Ties That Bind\'.
And yes, he makes it up to her. I\'m hoping you\'ll read on after being squicked by this chapter. Some of my favorites are after this one. Thanks for all the kind comments.
What? WHAT? DOCTOR ARE YOU INSANE.
No. No way ever, ever, is Rose going to do that. We're not having you change into 11 just yet.
Author's Response: Well, maybe a bit insane. He is trying his best to save them all.
