"He gets very, very distracted and from there, he gets into trouble. And he forgets what disguise she's wearing"- what a brilliant explanation for why the chameleon circuit never works! And the TARDIS loving hat stands made me laugh. This is so sweet, thank you for a delightful read.
Author's Response: You're very welcome!
This is absolutely perfect! ♥ Your TARDIS perspective is stellar, and your writing just delightful. The TARDIS' annoyance and fondness for her thief were wonderfully portrayed, as well as her timey-wimeyness, her sense of all possible timelines, her perception of the Doctor and how he changed through time, and how she changed along with him—in their relationship to humans and to Earth, most of all. The way you handled Ian and Barbara made me clap in happiness—and the other companions too :D I didn't catch all of them for sure, as I haven't seen all of the classics yet, but it was delightful trying to guess them. And most of all I'm in love with the way you portrayed how she came to choose the blue box form—not a hatstand indeed, that would have been delightful but so inconvenient for the show ;) It's just so very clever, witty and creative. I love this story. Thank you for sharing this, it was beautifully done :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! The companions I was thinking—skip this if you\'re really worried about first episode spoilers—of were Sarah Jane Smith (slips into the TARDIS without the Doctor noticing), Adric and Mel (mathematically minded), Leela (thinks in terms of legends), Jamie (compares the TARDIS to the hollow hills), and Ace, who definitely should not be allowed to play with FOOF, which is an explosive fluorine compound. At any rate, I\'m delighted that I got the TARDIS\'s timeyness right, and even more delighted that you liked it!
Lovely, and a good portrayal of the alien side of the TARDIS, while still keeping her warm and welcoming.
Author's Response: Thank you. It\'s *tough* to write the TARDIS, but very rewarding, I find.
This is sweet and lovely, and the flitting through tenses is very well done.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you enjoyed it.
This is splendid! I love the TARDIS's mix of exasperation and love for her thief and the other linear beings who travel with her.
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you liked it.
lovely story - and lovely idea. particularly like the idea of the hatstand making people's heads explode, and her chosing a police box form to lure in people like ian and barbara :)
Author's Response: :) The interesting thing about a police box is, it\'s not the sort of thing that goes absolutely unnoticed in a junk yard. A funny choice for camouflage—a brilliant choice, if camouflage wasn\'t what she was after.
Here from Calufrax. My goodness, what a perfect little story! You've captured "Sexy's" voice/personality perfectly! :D
Author's Response: Thank you! Really, this fic was something I had to write after I watched \"The Doctor\'s Wife;\" the TARDIS\'s personality was just *perfect* in that story. Glad I got it right in mine.
Here via Calufrax, and this is just lovely. Thank you! :-)
Author's Response: You\'re welcome! Glad you liked it.
'This is what he is when he stretches to his full self. Not the worried, lonely man he was becoming, in other possibilities, but the incandescent mad mystery who drags people and history in his wake.' This might be one of my favourite descriptions of the Doctor *ever*. Plus, there was lots and lots of wonderful stuff about the TARDIS choosing what to look like... Really, it was all wonderful and felt *right*. Thank you.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much!
This is great! I like the companions becoming "people" to the TARDIS, instead of just "pets" that the Doctor drags along.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you!
I'm in love with this. You've captured the TARDIS and her time perception perfectly.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad; I spent a bit of thought on the time perception.
This is lovely! A nice take on the TARDIS, and how she watches over her travelers.
Author's Response: Thank you! That\'s the first fan-fic I ever attempted. As far as I can tell, it popped into my head right after I watched \"The Doctor\'s Wife,\" and the TARDIS told the Doctor that she stole *him*—and I realized all at once that this lovely, strange alien *has* to have more agency, and more involvement, than you\'d think from a casual look.
That was bloody lovely! frin sent me here... very glad that she did. I love blue too... wonderful! Suranne Jones will always ( well, for now ) be the voice of the TARDIS... and I heard her echo! Loved it!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! Yeah, Suranne Jones did a lovely job of making the TARDIS strange and wonderful, as she should be.
Giggle giggle snark, oh yeah that's our TARDIS all right. You REALLY have a knack for capturing the characters and I VERY much look forward to more Ficivore meals from you.
Author's Response: Glad you liked it!
Oh man, you absolutely pinned down the essence of the TARDIS, as portrayed throughout the series and in "The Doctor's Wife" in particular. -favorites-
Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah, this story was mostly inspired by \"The Doctor\'s Wife.\" I adore that episode.
