I can completely see Eleven digging the toe of his boot into the floor and trying to avoid River’s eyes, like a little kid. I love your descriptions here; very accurate characterizations!

“I didn’t learn my skills in my current body either,” she remarked. “I’m sure you’ll remember.”

I love the entire idea of this fic, but I really love that line. I think we (including me) tend to forget that they didn’t train River but her previous regenerations, and some skills and abilities MUST carry over. I always wondered what things the Doctor really remembered from regeneration to regeneration.

'He took up a defensive stance, bladed hands up, butt out, looking like a complete moron.'

Oh, and yes. Completely. I bet he was even still wearing his tweed.

This is so brilliant, this entire fic. Very sweet, and very funny, and yet still a little sad with his palpable guilt at seeing her in the practice room at all. Loved it though.

I would have loved to see them spar each other.

And now I have to write a practice room like that into my WWW crossover stories...

Lovely, as ever!
