It's so beautifully heart breaking and bittersweet. A truly wonderful piece.

I cried. Again.

You portray the Doctor's emotions so simply, yet so elegantly ... it's very impressive, very beautiful.

Heart-rendingly lovely is the term, I believe. Jolie laide.

In any case, very well done.

I sort of love the idea of him getting to say goodbye. Its all sorts of depressing either way, but this takes away some of the sad. But still really sad. Idea of him holding onto Rose and her baby with another him was just...yea. But beautifully done.

Very nice

Omg I had a lump in my throat reading this! Beautifully written, lovely wording and it ties up the loose ends. Focussing on the Doctor's feelings, but in a different way, I like the perspective eused ("you...").

Overall, amazing! Loved it! lol :-) x

This is so beautifully depressing. Gorgeous, but it doesn't make me feel any better about EoT! Although I too was hoping that the Doctor would somehow get to say goodbye to Rose in the parallel world. And you wrote that scene beautifully. Her response "As much as can be expected" kind of broke my heart. Realistic, but I like to pretend that Rose and the clone Doctor have an absolutely marvelous time.

Another line that really got me: "And you can only say “yes.” It always would be, this life lived on behalf of others, and you had to believe that for the sake of both of your hearts." Isn't that just the truth of Doctor Who? All the sacrifice just better be worth it, because the poor Doctor just never gets a break.

Wonderful job with this!

I loved you adding that last goodbye. While I loved EoT, I felt it was lacking many things, and this was one of them. A real 'reward.' Yes, you handled that quite nicely.

Aww now you've made me cry. That was beautiful. Really nice.
