Evelyn seems to have blossomed since boarding the TARDIS. Her telepathic abilities are truly amazing. I hope the Doctor finds a way to increase her life span.
The scientist never realized that they created a being with incredible telepathic abilities. Good thing, too, as I can imagine the horrific things they'd use her for.
The Doctor courting Rose, I've been looking forward to this! He really did some intense research of the stages of courtship and put them too good use. It was so steamy and very, very sexy! They definitely were made for each other and I bet things will heat even more each time they get together. I also have a feeling that Rose's nightmares won't be returning anytime soon.
The Doctor has tried so hard to prolong Evelyn's life. It looks like it's not to be. But, she's at peace with her fate. What a gifts she's giving the Doctor and Rose! They will be able to bond.
I love how the TARDIS and Bad Wolf Rose found the one time line that would keep the couple together and created the statue that they knew would save them from the goop.
My heart soared when Evelyn told the Doctor that she would join the TARDIS. She'll get to be with the Doctor, Rose and their future children. The last surprise was joyous and also explains the anomaly in Rose's brain. She and the Doctor will get to have their forever!
The ending of the story was so beautiful. I teared up a little when the Doctor found Evelyn in the garden. But, then I smiled when I thought of her and the TARDIS together, exploring the universe with the Doctor and Rose.
Thank you for this story. Every time I finish one of your tales, I think, "How in the world is she going to top this one?" And you do! I cannot wait to see what you come up with next!
Please take care of yourself and keep those creative thoughts flowing! Thank you again for sharing your talents with the world! ^_^
Author's Response: How very lovely of you Sweetie! Your comments are going to make my month! I’m happy you enjoyed this story and yes I’m working on one with a Christmas theme. I hope you and your family find peace and joy this Christmas and that you stay safe. Here’s hoping we get our lives back in the New Year.
Thank goodness that Evelyn watching what was happening on the monitor. She and the TARDIS seem to be so in sync with each other, too.
I was worried about the statue bringing harm to Rose but it did the opposite and saved her and the Doctor and also removed that evil crown from Rose's head.
Back to the safety of the TARDIS, thanks to Evelyn and her link with the TARDIS. It looks, too, like the Doctor has the situation with the scientists well in hand. Trenton's end was definitely poetic justice!
Evelyn deserves the suite the TARDIS made for her. I think the connection between the two goes quite deep. I'm so happy for Evelyn having all this luxury for the first time in her life.
I'm as intrigued as the Doctor regarding the creation of the statue and how it ended up on the bog planet. There's also the mystery of Rose's latest brain scan and the anomaly. Hopefully, it's nothing serious.
I adore Evelyn, she's so sweet. I also feel so sad that she'd never seen flowers before and it's so nice that she finally got to experience a garden. But, that last line before she went down the path. The last thing I'd ever think was that Rose made the statue! It really blew my mind!
Thanks for yet another great chapter and surprising ending. I'm so curious about the Doctor's reaction to that! I have a feeling his mind will be blown, too!
I hope things are going well with you and you're staying safe. We're hanging in here. Our Secretary of Health, Dr. Rachel Levine, thinks that a vaccine may be available in a month or so. Even so, it'll be a while before we turn the corner. But it's a bit of light starting to show in that long, dark tunnel! As always, please stay safe, healthy and enjoy the weekend! ^_^
Author's Response: It’s such a treat to read your reactions to each chapter and I’m lovin’ your reactions to Evelyn and her growth. I can’t wait til you read the next and last chapter. Yes, it’s so nice to have some hope after all the people lost to this vicious virus. I can’t help but feel there are some hard lessons here for all of us. Stay safe and keep your guard up. We’re almost there.
Rose made the statue? intriguing!
Author's Response: Delighted you’re intrigued. All is revealed in the next chapter. Thanks for commenting!
It looks as if the Doctor is going to have a difficult time removing the crown if it digs in deeper on each attempt to take it off. I also worry that since it's programmed to Trenton's commands, what happens now that it looks as if he might be dead.
Rose can't leave the conference room because of Trenton's command. I guess, if he is dead, she still has to obey his commands. She'll be in pain if the Doctor has to carry her to the TARDIS. To make matters worse something is drilling into the underground lair from above. This is a horrible situation!
A mad dash to the TARDIS won't be easy with Rose flailing about in the Doctor's arms. Rose understood that the Doctor had no choice but to enter her mind so he could dull the pain she was in. She trusts him because she truly loves him.
The corridor is filling with that disgusting, goopy, DNA mess. But, what? The statue from the marketplace? I didn't expect that! What a cliffhanger! Yikes!
What a exciting, suspenseful chapter this was! I've enjoyed every installment of this story, but this one really had me hooked to the point where I completely ignored everything going on around me. I have a feeling that the next chapter is going to ramp things up even more.
I hope you are still doing well and staying healthy. Things are okay here. We're going Christmas shopping next week just in case they lock things down here again. Gotta do what we gotta do! Please take care of yourself and enjoy the rest of the weekend. ^_^
Author's Response: I’m lovin’ the fact you found this chapter suspenseful and that you’re enjoying this story. I always appreciate your comments and reactions to the twists in the story. I’m glad you’re staying safe as are we. Best Regards to you and yours!
Darn that Trenton and that crown! I hope Rose is strong enough to keep repeating that mantra and resist Trenton's commands. But, it doesn't look good for her.
Thank goodness that Evelyn was in the TARDIS to wake the Doctor up. I think, even if he wasn't close to being fully healed, he'd have gone to Rose's rescue. His love for her is absolute.
The thought of what Trenton is going to do to Rose is sending chills through my body. What an evil creature he is! Poor Rose, my heart is breaking for her.
Doctor to the rescue! The Doctor's rage was justified and I feel zero sympathy for Trenton. He got what he deserved. I just hope it's not too late to save Rose. It seems as if the crown has really got a hold on her. She's the willing sacrifice and she's going to disappear. How can he stop it from happening?
Wow! Now THAT was one helluva cliffhanger! I'm really looking forward to see how the Doctor can remove that nasty crown. This chapter really got my emotions going. And your description of what Trenton was doing to Rose was so vivid, I almost felt like I was there. Great writing!
I hope you're doing well. Summer has made a brief return here; it's lovely. Although, the mountain air still smells like fall. I hope you're having nice weather, too. Please take care of yourself and stay healthy! ^_^
Author's Response: I really enjoyed your review.! It’s encouraging to hear your reaction to the words I’ve struggled to put together! Thanks so much for your kind words! Yes, we’ve had lovely weather here too and it has felt like hope! Stay safe!
Thank goodness the Doctor was able to get to the TARDIS. He needs healing sleep.
Evelyn is such a good person; I'm glad she sage in the TARDIS and that the Doctor sees her as a person, as Evelyn, not experiment 227. I hope she gets to see the wonders of the universe in the time she has left.
I guess it wouldn't really be all that hard to figure out who was was behind the data wipe. I worry that he's going to connect the Doctor to Rose.
Speaking of Rose, what is that crown doing to her? If it's growing into her brain, it won't be easy to remove. I can't believe what a creepy perv Trenton is. I imagine it will only get worse once he takes complete control of Rose and she has to comply with his wishes. Ugh. I just hope the Doctor heals in time to save her.
I didn't think the last chapter could be beaten, but you managed to do it with this one. BTW, I can imagine Handy and Evelyn together, for some reason. Both damaged, yet so good and decent.
I actually started writing this review a few days ago, but my brain refused to cooperate with my hands. Election exhaustion, I think! As you can imagine, I'm in great spirits. Seeing the celebrations, all over the world made me cry tears of joy. I hope you are doing well and staying healthy. I'm off to read the next chapter before I go to bed (I literally fell into bed last night, I was so tired after barely sleeping for nearly a week!). Take care of yourself! ^_^
Author's Response: Lovely to hear from you Sweetie. I’m so glad you enjoyed this chapter and I loved your comments. I think you’re right about Handy and Evelyn. Gawd I know what you mean. The entire world held it’s breath as did we on your Northern border. There’s a tough road ahead but now there’s hope and I’m delighted!
Rose, keeping her cool while Trenton fumes. If the Doctor could see her, he'd be so proud of her. But, Trenton still manages to get the upper hand. Figures he'd have a spare crown. Rose is under his control now. Making her eat the nail polish chips. Gross! I'm glad she was able to defy him a little though it ended with the creep slugging her.
The poor Doctor must have been in agony just moving. I'm not surprised that he didn't see Rose under the table. His attention had to be totally focused on getting away. I'm so relieved he made it to the TARDIS, but what will he do when he realizes Rose isn't inside?
Another heart-pounding chapter. I'm worried about what Trenton is going to do to Rose. Hopefully, the Doctor can recover enough to save her in time. BTW, your description of Trenton was so vivid and made me think of a vampire. I wouldn't be surprised if he's drinking some of that blood he's taking!
This review is a bit shorter than my usual; I'm typing it on my tablet instead of my PC. I hope you're doing well and staying healthy. We're doing okay here, just waiting for the election to be over and, hopefully, a new president being elected. Take care of yourself! ^_^
Author's Response: So good to know you enjoyed this chapter Hon! Don’t you worry about the length of the review cuz I’m happy with ‘I liked it!’ Best regards to you and your family. Stay safe!
In my last review, I said that I thought the Doctor was going to be in for a rough time. That sure was an understatement! Though, it seems that Trenton isn't doing so well himself.
The Doctor's resliance is amazing in the face of such appalling torture. But, I worry about him reaching the limits of his endurance. How can he last another two hours, forty-two minutes and thirty-eight seconds?
Evelyn is really turning out to be a great help to Rose and the Doctor. I'm glad Rose got her to the TARDIS where she'll be safe. Speaking of the TARDIS, I love the pink and gold mini sonic she made for Rose.
Rose is so different from the Doctor in situations like this. She's managing to keep her head where he would charge in without thinking.
The description of what Trenton did to the Doctor horrific. My heart broke for him and also for Rose who had to see the man she loved in so much pain.
I was wondering when Trenton was coming back. At least Rose was able to unshackle the Doctor. She sure took Trenton by surprise. And she was cool, calm and collected when confronted by him. The Doctor said he only takes the best and she is a prime example of that!
I'm enjoying this story so much and it's a great distraction from everything going on here (Elections and fires and hurricanes. Oh my!). Thanks so much for sharing it with us. As always, please stay safe and healthy. Happy Halloween! ^_^
Author's Response: Ahhh, thanks so much Sweetie. I always enjoy your comments especially that you’re enjoying this story. Yes, please stay safe. We’re obviously not out of the woods with this virus but we’ll adjust. Stay safe!
Daleks! Yikes! I'm not surprised that Trenton would be involved with them. But, he doesn't know that he's playing with fire because they will exterminate him without a second thought once they are through with him. Stupid man! It's even worse, knowing that he saw Rose destroy the Daleks on Satellite Five and thinks he can harness the power of the Vortex from her.
Hopefully, the Doctor's hacks to the computer system will fool Trenton into thinking the Vortex power is still in Rose and will also delete the database. He's so clever!
I hope Rose can stay put while the Doctor meets with Trenton. She's right that he tends to look before he leaps. He needs her to keep him from getting into trouble in his haste to get things done.
It looks like the Doctor is definitely in trouble! Because Trenton isn't taking the deal the Doctor offered and will torture him to get what he wants. Now, we get an evil cliffie! Eek!
When I read the last line of this chapter, I got a cold chill right down my spine. Great job! You sure know how to end things on a tense note.
I hope you're doing well and staying healthy and having decent weather. Things are crazy here with the election so close. The constant bombardment of negative ads and prompts to vote (which we did, last Thursday when we brought our mail-in ballots to the county commissioner's office) are driving us both crazy. Even apps and games have those ads on them. November 3 can't come fast enough!
I am off to finally read the next chapter. I have a feeling the Doctor is going to be in for a rough time. How in the world is he going to get out of this mess? Thanks for another great chapter. Please stay safe and enjoy living in a place that is sane! ^_^
Author's Response: Good grief, it’s good to know you’re okay! And good on you both for voting and not taking a chance with the USPS! The whole world is watching the insanity of the US elections astonished at the cheating which seems so commonplace. I’m happy this story has intrigued you! Please take care and stay safe!
This has gone from beyond squeaky bum time to flat out scary! Rose is playing with fire, and although I can understand her motives, I hope she doesn't make things worse!
Author's Response: Yes she is but she had little choice. Fingers crossed and stay tuned. Chuffed to get your comments. Much appreciated!
They are both playing a dangerous game.
Author's Response: You are so right...both of them in their own way are risking it all. Thank you very much for following and for commenting. I appreciate it!
Squeaky bum time! Good thing Rose and Evelyn are able to be together to plot a rescue, if the Doctor's glib tongue can't make Trenton see his way. A torture session would certainly interfere with his courting Rose, after all! Well done, the suspense is building!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I’m chuffed you’re enjoying this story. It’s very encouraging for me. Cheers
Uh Oh! Wonder what Evelyn and Rose are going to do to get the Doctor out of this mess and escape.
Author's Response: Hopefully you’ll stay with my story to find out! Thanks so much for commenting. I’m glad you’re intrigued!
I knew Rose wouldn't be able to wait for the Doctor to return. I can't say I blame her. The Doctor is as jeopardy friendly as she is. At least she got to see the results of the DNA analysis before she left. Whatever she saw doesn't look good!
The Doctor is really quick at thinking on his feet. He managed to semi-charm his way into helping Trenton and the other scientists. Although, I don't trust Trenton; I think he accepted the Doctor's offer of help a bit too easily. The lab sounds like a gruesome place. I'm amazed the Doctor was so calm and collected upon seeing it.
Rose is pretty good at thinking on her feet, too. Hiding in the booth enabled her to hear what the Doctor was up to and finding a way to slip him a note was pure genius.
I knew Trenton couldn't be trusted. Although, to play a bit of Devil's advocate, it's common procedure to check credentials. But, Trenton is evil, so I have a feeling things are going to get nasty when he finds out the Doctor isn't who he said he is.
To make matters worse, the content of Rose's note was the last thing the Dotor needs.
That cliffhanger was the last thing I expected. Excellent surprise! This was another great installment of a story that gets better with every chapter.
I hope you're doing well and staying healthy. We're doing okay. The trees are bursting with beautiful colors and the mountains love gorgeous. I love this time of year! Take care. Please stay safe! ^_^
Author's Response: Thanks so much Sweetie. Lovely to hear your reactions. Our awesome duo are yet again in a pickle! But I’m delighted you’re finding this story capturing your interest! I’m with you. I love autumn too, especially after the heat of this summer! Glad to hear you and yours are okay. Stay safe!
this story is starting to get "Dalektable" ;0
Author's Response: Oh clever you! How right you are! Thanks for commenting ;-)
