Oh beautiful. I loved how long it took Rose to believe she wasn't dreaming.
Author's Response: I may have taken it a bit far, but I remember those groggy mornings when my daughter was a baby, and perpetual exhaustion, stumbling about the kitchen. Imagine Rose with two! I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
Ooooooh my goooooooddddd!!!!!!!!! Them making out!!!!! And the babies!!!!!!!!!! This is so lovely.
Author's Response: This was so much fun to write. I'm so glad you liked it!
I am overcome!! What an amazing idea! And it's so happy!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it! The idea came from my Secret Santa recipient, karlafen, who pitched it as one of three plot suggestions. Caedmon told me that this one was the one to do, so I tried my hand at it. It came out much better than I thought it would. I knew by the time I got to the labour scene that it was working, and the final scene had me cackling with evil laughter. Rose shares something with me and my daughter, she is not a morning person. Heh!
That was just so sweet and awesome. Loved it!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you loved it! I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. The prompt was a bit more angsty. I'm not sure my recipient likes it or not, haven't heard, so I'm glad others have enjoyed it. I've never published a post Doomsday fix it before, but it was fun!
I appreciate your strong, feisty Rose equal to the Doctor in courage and determination and better than him in hope. An excellent Christmas treat, thank you so much!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! Of course Rose knew something that the Doctor didn't, and Pete's Torchwood had already been working on interdimensional travel. They also had duplicates of Tosh and Malcolm, so I figured they'd be able to pull it off.
I was a little afraid to read this (I'm not in the mood for much angst today), but I'm so glad I did! I love the twins and Rose's confusion about who the fourth guest would be was great. Any chance we'll see a sequel? Thank you for sharing this! :)
Author's Response: The truth is that I was hesitant to choose this prompt of the three offered because I was adverse to angst also. When I realized I could do it with a happy ending, and with a firm shove from my dear friend Caedmon, I got busy. Rose didn't seem like a morning person to me in "Rose," so I thought it might take her a few cups of tea to figure out that the Doctor was actually interacting with his environment, and then she would automatically assume she was still asleep and having a really lovely dream. Bless! I might do a sequel. It really is a brilliant premise. I've got to get caught up on the next section of "Of Tabloids and Trailers" first. We're going to call it "Of Separations and Speculations." You can read it on AO3, co-written with the talented Caedmon!
This was lovely! I'm so happy they got their happy ending!
Author's Response: Yeah, there can never be too many "Doomsday" fix-it fics, can there? This prompt came from my Secret Santa recipient, karlafen. It was a great premise, but I kept the angst to a bare minimum. Christmas fics should have joyful endings. Since it was a Christmas fic, the twins had to be named after Charlie boy, too. What's Christmas without a Dickens reference, especially when he is a good friend of the family, right?
Absolutely lovely! I love the babies and the Doctor made it through!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it. My favorite part was Charlotte tossing her giraffe at the Doctor and it bouncing off his head. That and him deliberately picking up the glass of water and drinking from it. Poor Rose, I was chronically sleep deprived with one child, I can't imagine living in a house with three children under the age of six months. I really hope that Pete hired a nanny.
This lifted the spirit and included laughs along the way...loved it all.
Author's Response: It made me laugh when I was writing it, which is usually a good sign. I really should dip my pen back into this universe again sometime. I really love how it turned out! Thanks so much not just for reading, but also for letting me know how much you liked it!
I love this so much. It's just so so so good...I know I've read it ten times!! I love the babies' names, I love the dialogue, I love it all!! There aren't many fics that can make me laugh out loud, but you do!!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! After all, you were the one who told me I had to write it. You have such good instincts, cause it really wrote itself. I could have done a lot more scenes if I hadn't been on a tight deadline. Of course the recipient's request for a smut-free fic forced me to keep it G-rated. There may have to be a sequel. Or a prequel/sequel. Something smutty.
