Well that was an interesting read. To bad that it appears to be an abandoned project.

I love this story! What you have done with the Shadows, Technomages & most of all, Rose Tyler, is fantastic. Quite the dark story. One of the most imaginative fanfics I have read in quite a long time. Very AU.
One small thing: you should have your Beta's look out for typo's more. There were a few places where you had small grammer mistakes (missing s's or ed's, words where it was obvious you started one way, changed your mind & a word or 2 didn't get deleted). Simple things to fix with the right people looking in on the writing. I write technical stuff & I have 2 proof readers before anything goes out. One after I have edited for mistakes then the other after I have fixed any mistakes from the first reader.
Keep up the good writing!

"Light thinks that it travels faster than anything, but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds that the darkness has gotten there first, and is always waiting for it."-Anonymous
This should be attributed to Terry Pratchett, a brittish fantasy/comedy writer.

Backpedaling one chapter to add another note:
While I'm not a fan of Rose "Whump", as it were, I love the added bit of how they could not remove the Bad Wolf completely. Therein lies the key to the Shadows undoing.
And am I alone in the fact that the Shadows creep me the f-k out? They were always rather frightening to me.
And, the canon DW/TW-verse had references to "The Darkness" almost throughout each season. Pulling that together with the Shadows was pure brilliance!
Please Please Please finish this story out. I'm beyond intrigued, and love your style of writing!
| Jonn Wolfe chapter 8 . 9/20/2010
This is fascinating and frightening all at the same time.
Please continue this. As a fan of both 'realities', the concept is enthralling.

OOooooooooooh...Background for the Shadows and Vorlons. Niiiiice. Looking forward to more. Keep writing!
| Isis the Sphinx chapter 6 . 8/9/2010
*hisses* Ooooh crap?
Not good. Not good at all. Any chance for Rose's survival? Looking forward to more, and I really don't like cliffies. Keep writing!
| Isis the Sphinx chapter 5 . 7/27/2010
Any chance on a B5 reference in the main plot soon?
Looking forward to more. Keep writing!
| Isis the Sphinx chapter 4 . 7/25/2010
Ok, interesting. Slightly different from others I've seen. And there was a reference to Stargate SG-1.
Looking forward to more. Keep writing!

thanks for the shoutout, and i love the "...in a 'parallel universe of the main ones' sorta way..." comment. how very true... as you already know, i quite like this chapter, and i can't wait to see the reactions to what happens next. (since i know, i'm more excited to see what your other readers say... *evil laugh*)
| Pandora of Ithilien chapter 3 . 10/26/2009
i thought i had this on alert... *headslaps self*. anyway, love the shaidar intro.

Please update soon! I really hope that you continue this story1 Although I haven't seen anything related to Babylond 5 yet (ecxept for the ranger-Mimbari staff).
It would be facinating if Rose some how ended up working on Babylon 5 and while the shadows were a looming threat, guess who? It's the Doctor!
And of course the first meeting wouldn't go well because the Mimbari, and the Vorlons recognize the Doctor as a Time Lord, or at least the Vorlons do. I'm guessing that the Time Lords would be one of the first ones that fought against (in some way) against the shadows.
Then of course the shadows show up and all hell breaks loose. and the Doctor comes up with something to distract the shadows and the Mimbari and Vorlons realize that THIS Time Lord is different then the others.
Anyways those are just suggestions and I love this story. I hope that you update soon!
