Part cute, part fun, part scary. Reads a lot like an episode! :D
Calufrax sent me, and I can see why! Your characters are so perfectly, well, in character, and the details and dialogue are so spot on that reading this was more like watching an HD episode in my head.
And then it turned on a dime, and there was that lovely, oh-so-deliberate kiss, which makes perfect sense given how controlled the Doctor is and how in control of her sexuality River is. (Hence the title?)
In short, this was geeky AND hot, in all the best possible ways. :)
Author's Response: Oh, I am so thrilled by your review! When I write fanfic, the biggest thing for me is getting the characters right. And so to hear that that worked so well for you just makes my day! And then your compliments about my details and dialogue? I could hug you! Thank you so very much! Your feedback was a complete delight. -Muse (P.S. I\'m far too amused by the similarities of our signatures. And yes, you got where I was coming from with the title of this piece. It came from a lot of meta discussion with friends on LJ about what kind of kiss we\'d like to see on screen between River and Eleven (pre-S6 naturally). This was the result. It was lovely to see that you got that.)
Here from Calufrax. What a marvelous little fic! :D
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m delighted that you enjoyed this story that much. And thank you for letting me know how you found it. I appreciate your feedback a lot. -Muse
Aw, that was wonderful!
Author's Response: I\'m so glad that you enjoyed it! Thank you. :) -Muse
Here via calufrax. Very nice! I could see this all happening very clearly, everyone was so nicely in character.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m very happy that you liked this and that you felt everyone was in-character. That means a lot to me. And thank you for letting me know how you found my story! -Muse
I saw this on ff.net and am glad you reposted it here so I can post and say how cool it was. I like the tech, and the aliens and the mis-en-scene as it were, and yes, that kiss was something else! :D
Author's Response: I\'m thrilled that you liked the aliens and the tech I wove into the story. But I\'m especially happy that you liked the kiss. Like I mentioned in the review below, I was a little insecure about whether that kiss fit or not. I had considered rewriting it even. So I\'m very glad that you seem to feel it worked. Thanks for taking the time to leave me a review here. The feedback means a lot to me. -Muse
Very nice! That was some kiss.
Author's Response: Thank you! I was concerned about the kiss I wrote. I wasn\'t sure if it felt appropriate or not. I even considered rewriting it. Thanks again for leaving me a review. It really helps. -Muse
