I wish you'd write more Doctor Who fics, Naruto's good and all, but I've fallen a little behind and get a little confused by them, lol. This one's great, I actually read it a long time ago but forgot to review it. How is it that only one other person has reviewed this? Blasphemy!
Unfortunately, I don't really have anything constructive to say about it. I think it's great the way it is. You give a very candid, very real, look into the Doctor's mind. Yes, write more, I have decided...

You're right about Moffat being the writer of some of the best episodes and stories in NewWho - all of them keep winning the Hugo Award, after all. The only thing I don't like of him is he doesn't like Rose, since he called her a 'needy girlfriend' who essentially deserved to be dumped in the parallel world with a clone of the Doctor. Her story arc would've been better if she'd died because, considering the strength of her character, her ending was weak. Otherwise, I consider Moffat to be one of the most imaginative writers I've ever seen - I'll never get over the Weeping Angels, that's for sure. 'Blink' keeps making me feel that Sally Sparrow should become a recurring or major character at some point. Yes, the series will probably be safe in Steven Moffat's hands on the whole ...
Now the review. I admit I've never seen anyone actually write a Doctor/Reinette (get the spelling correct) fic before, but it's nice to see the events of GITF from the Doctor's perspective for once. It's also more original than having Rose call Reinette a French tart of King Louis' whore. Character bashing annoys me so much, and I'm pleased that you haven't partaken of it. In addition, you've written the Doctor's perspective in this matter. You've captured his 'lonely god' and 'outsider' feelings perfectly. What's best, you gave me a story with a premise which I didn't even expect, but was nonetheless pleased with anyway because it was written so realistically and believably, without mucking around for your own purposes. Oh, if only more writers of were as open-minded as yourself ...
