Good God. I feel so, so terrible for them both. Mind raping yourself (though to be fair they should probably be considered different people). Now that just takes things to a whole new level of scary.

I cried so hard knowing one of my two favorite doctors would die. Good work making be sob like when 9 regenerated or when rose got left in Doomsday.

Beautiful job! I love the whole battle that the Doctor literally had with himself. Excellent work with portraying Ninth and Tenth. Especially love the last line. Personally I think the Doctor did merge together because, the Doctor's first rule? He always lies. Hehe.

When I started this, I thought "9 and 10 battling each other? Sounds like fun." What I got was one of my favourite fictional character(s) fighting for Rose, who seems to have become a sort of prize (sorry, I've got a bias against Rose), and some level of intimacy which I really don't appreciate. Nevertheless, your writing is terribly good, I did enjoy the two Doctor's heated exchanges (though the same could not be said for the subject of their argument)
I must compliment this piece of work, although it isn't my cup of tea. Good work.

OH MY GOD that ending! This was such a great story! I absolutely love the Ninth Doctor in the series (I apparently have a thing for the broken morally gray kind of characters) and I like the Tenth Doctor well enough, and I just adored what you did with this story. Everything was just brilliant and amazing. I was sort of rooting for the Ninth and Tenth melding instead of just one of them winning out, but I actually think the Tenth emerging the victor would have been more plausible. The Doctor would have, ultimately, done what was right, and the Ninth has had his time and it has ended. Love how you gave this an open ending too! It was devilish and I love you for it. Honestly, I think it was just the Tenth teasing Rose, playing with her little ape mind. But, of course, as open endings go, this could go either way, really. xD Bloody fantastic.

Fantastic? Oh, that is just evil...

Just so beautifully written. I am most curious about what happened between the two doctors when they decided to pick who would 'win' :) I also loved the last line. Perfect and leaves the audience wondering...

Oh my this was amazing! I'm a little sad that it was Nine that died, though... But anyway, great story! Loved the plot and the last line!

You seriously could not have ended that on a more perfect note! I have come to the realization that I am in love with your brain, because it writes such amazing things! And you have a great way of keeping everyone in character, for all of your stories.
I loved this concept, and am grateful that you wrote on it, because Nine was my first Doctor and although Tennant did a magnificent job of smoothing into the role of the Doctor, it was still hard for me to see Eccelsion go. Not that its been easy for any regeneration, but Nine was my first and that always leaves an impact. I had the hardest time trying to morph the two into the same character and it was so very hard to let go. I'm thrilled that you expanded on this.
Again, I also love how you ended it and the "open for interpretation" route, although giving enough details to point us to where we all hoped it would lead.

This was brilliant! Thanks for writing!

Yup, he blended properly.

I am rooting for the tenth. Definitely. The way you portray him in your story is just the way I wanted him to be in the actual series... Me and my sick imagination. XD

Love it. Everything was absolutely amazing and I don't know how you did it. Wow.

Definitely the sequel I expected after reading The Darkness Within. This is simply amazing. Though I was firmly on the tenth's side, even I was torn as to which one should be allowed to win. Rose's statement re the Doctor always making the right decision was simply perfect. And the ending, the amalgamation of the two doctors because they are indeed the same man was done just right. Fantastic indeed! :)
