I'm only through the first chapter, but OH MY GOD. This is BRILLIANT. You are a mad genius.
What a wonderful story! Beautifully blended - ever line rings true
I loved this! I marked it as a favorite. I think Marianne would be a wonderful companion. This part really sums up the Doctor for me; “No,” Elinor said softly. “I shall not say that tonight. Perhaps I shall never say so again. The Doctor — he has a way of convincing one that wonder is as much a part of the world as earth, water or air.”
She expected Marianne to exult in triumph over this, but instead this won only a rueful smile. “I was going to say that the Doctor convinces one to trust one’s own senses and reason. That the reality around us is more splendid than any fairy-tale story.”
