Fantastic finish to an equally fantastic story!
A fitting end for the Queen and, also, a new beginning for her. Maybe this second chance will turn her into a better person. I was so happy to see the Doctor remember the sonic. He's back to his old self again! The image of the adorable babies and their red capes made me smile. 1756. Now we know what Bells Pound really is. Cool! The burial place of brave Nathaniel sounds lovely, as are the words carved on his gravestone.
Thank you so much for gifting us with this story. You're a very talented writer.
Author's Response: I am so delighted you enjoyed it. To know someone has found pleasure in something youíve written gives joy so thank you very much for your kind comments. I am writing another. Will post soon. Thanks again!
I almost dreaded reading this chapter, I was so worried about the depravity the Queen was going to inflict on the Doctor. Luckily, we have Rose to the rescue! She was truly brilliant, taunting the Queen; even knowing that it would not go well when her Royal Craziness got her hands on her,. When that happened it was Doctor to the rescue! I was so glad he was able gain enough sense to put an end to her reign.
The scenes with the Doctor and Rose were beyond steamy! I'm glad we're in a cold front right now or I'd need to fan myself! It's a good thing Bram didn't show up. Can you imagine his reaction? I just wish the Queen could have heard their lovemaking. She had to shuffle around to avoid seeing the action because you know she couldn't handle it.
Author's Response: Oh I am so glad you enjoyed it! Pssst! The Doctor has one more surprise for the Queen in next chapter. In this story I wanted to highlight what an essential part of the team Rose is so I am glad you appreciated it!
I think Rose might have shaken the Queen up a bit. I hope so. She's definitely seeming to be more defensive than usual.
Bram is so loyal. He won't abandon the Doctor and Rose, no matter what. I just wish he'd been able to get the sonic to Rose.
The Queen makes me sick. Ugh. I hope she suffers severe side effects from the injection. But, before that has a chance of happening, she's got the Doctor under the spell of a powerful aphrodisiac. Poor Rose having to witness what is not going to be a pleasant experience. My heart aches for both our babies.
Author's Response: Itís odd knowing youíre not experiencing the cliffies one at a time cuz I just want to promise things get better in the next chapter! I am so enjoying your reaction.
How sadistic is that Queen? Poor Rose, that bitch didn't have to break her ankle. I'm glad she's getting a bit of relief from the pain, thanks to the Doctor. Oh, Rose, please be careful when you taunt her, Queen's not playing with a full deck! Still, Rose managed to get the sonic back. Whew!
I love Bram! He'd be a good, resourceful companion to take for a couple of trips in the TARDIS. The Doctor remember the sonic. Yay!
Author's Response: Yes Bram is a peach. I guess itís the kindness of the Doctor and Rose that inspires such loyalty. Thank you so much for following my story.
Oh, that crafty Doctor! He's keeping one step of head of the Queen in this bizarre game she's playing. Though, I worry about Rose. I fear Queenie's got something very nasty up her sleeve.
I'm happy that the Doctor and Rose can communicate telepathically; at least they can keep track of each other. The Doctor's solution to the lack of sperm is a better alternative than what the Queen wanted. Again, ew! Plus, he gets to imagine his beautiful Rose! She also gets to experience the Doctor's solution. Hehe.
You and your cliffhangers! Yikes!!! At least I don't have to wait for the next chapter. Off I go to read!
Author's Response: Oh I so enjoy your reaction to these chapters. Seriously I donít plan the evil cliffies but when I get there they just occur but luckily you didnít have to wait.
I'm back! I have so much to catch up on (we were on vacation to Long Island and also bought a home. Busy!). But, getting to read all these new chapters is something I'm looking forward to.
Damn that Queen, humiliating our Doctor that way! Grrr... At least he's not really under her spell. He's starting to remember the sonic. That's good news, at least.
I love how the Doctor keeps his cool under the Queen's interrogation. I wanted to smack her when she smacked him. Another cliffhanger! She wants more of sperm. Ew!
Author's Response: So glad youíre back! Apparently going in style what with vacations in Long Island and home buying. The Queenís a piece of work but retribution awaits. Welcome back!
I don't blame Rose for being worried about the Doctor. I wish they could just leave. But, I know they can't just abandon Bram and his people. Especially, those adorable, baby grubs!
I love how devoted to each other the Doctor and Rose are. True love! I just hope that love is strong enough to withstand the Queen. Speaking of the Queen... great cliffhanger! I'm so nervous about what's going to happen in the next chapter.
Author's Response: I do appreciate your comments very much and that you are following my story. Thanks for making my day!
Another great chapter! The Doctor is brilliant, not only telling Rose his name, but giving it to her. I'm happy that he's almost his old self again. It will be nice when he and Rose can be a proper couple again.
Now that the Doctor knows what the Queen is, I hope he can stop her before she isolates his telepathy gene. Two days isn't all that much time, even for a Time Lord!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. Things are coming to a head but through it all the Doctor and Rose are stronger together. I do hope you continue to enjoy my story.
Much fluffier chapter than the last. I like that! I'm so happy that the Doctor is recovering. Although, I was worried that the Queen might have gained access for the few seconds that the TARDIS door was open. Thankfully, it doesn't look like she did. The Doctor is still compromised and that is not a good thing. Hopefully, he can get that sorted soon.
BTW, the baby grubs are adorable! For some reason, they are reminding me of the Adipose.
Author's Response: Iím really enjoying your reactions as my story develops. The inevitable showdown approaches as does their chance to be together. Thanks so much for commenting.
This chapter... WOW!!! I can't believe what the Doctor went through. He loves Rose so much that he'd risk getting killed rather than betray her. I'm so glad she was able to get back into his mind to help soothe him. He's going to have to deal with the extreme violation the Queen perpetrated on him when he wakes up. Good thing he's got Rose!
Speaking of the Queen, she has something from the Doctor: "Refusal after refusal, each one debasing the Queen, until she had slowly sliced open each of his testicles and withdrawn his sperm, leaving him to bleed to death." Is she going to be able to use his sperm to breed? Yikes!
Author's Response: Oh she has plans for his sperm but for more insidious purposes than breeding! Thank you so much for your interest in my story. Iíve quite enjoyed your comments. Next chapter likely tomorrow. Thanks again.
Another great chapter! Bram and Rose make a great team. Things went pretty well with the first rescue. I have a feeling that it's not going to be quite so easy when it comes to saving the Doctor. I'm so worried about him and the wait for the next chapter is going to be excruciating!
Author's Response: Lovely to know your reaction to my story and youíre right that things are not going well with the Doctor but heíll be back in the next chapter in a day or two. Thank you for your comments. Keeps me encouraged!
Oh no! Poor Doctor! I thought that maybe he was just playing along with the queen. After thinking about it, I'm not so sure. But at least Rose might have found an ally. BTW, the scene with Rose and the little creature was adorable.
Author's Response: Awww, thanks. So glad you liked it and it's lovely to know your reaction. Youíve made my day.
It looks like the Doctor has a solution to being compromised. At least I hope, though a part of me wonders if it will be enough. I had tears in my eyes for poor Nathaniel. But, if his information helps, then at least some good will come out of his situation.
ďThe Queen comes for him. She wants his sperm.Ē
Yikes! That threw me for a loop. Was he talking about the Doctor? Now, I'm really worried!
Thanks for your concern over the flooding. We're on a small hill above the Susquehanna River, so we were okay. Just that the main way out of our very, small town was underwater. The flood waters have receded and all is well again. I'll take the rain we had over the hurricanes and oppressive heat we used to have to deal with in Florida!
Author's Response: I am very glad to hear the floods have receded and thanks for letting me know that all is well. Yes Nathaniel was talking about the Doctor. I really appreciate hearing your reaction to my story. Honestly it makes my week!
Forgive me for not reviewing sooner. We've had torrential rain with some bad flooding here in Central Pennsylvania and my internet hasn't been the best. It seems to be back to normal and I finally had a chance to catch up on this great story.
I've really enjoyed the last few chapters. I love how forgiving Rose is, she knows the Doctor was not himself. But, she's also aware that he might still be compromised and I like that she's being proactive in that respect. Poor Doctor! He's so worried that some his suggestions might not really be his. Not to mention his very odd comment about not being able to regenerate. I can't wait to see what happens next. I have to admit I'm very nervous!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention how much I enjoyed that little bit of a cliffhanger at the end of chapter 4. It definitely made waiting for the next chapter quite nerve-wracking!
Author's Response: What a thoughtful review! Thank you and it means so much to hear it when youíre working your way through a story with characters you love. I do hope you have all recovered without loss in Pennsylvania. Best wishes to you and those affected by the floods.
Wow! Great start! I'm anxiously awaiting the next chapter.
Author's Response: Delighted to hear from you! Thank-you so much for commenting. Next chapter will be posted later today!
