Is Jack really that bad of a driver that John and 10 don't want to be connected to teaching him. Note to self: don't drive with Jack. And is he so bad because he's used to 51rst century driving?
Why is Mickey calling him Mouth? Is there something I missed?
And I always got the impression in the last series that Mickey was over Rose, because of something that happened in the parallel world.
Oh, and I love that they can imitate any voice. And Rose doing it was VERY amusing.
Ugh, Mickey is VERY immature. And I always got the impression that Rose DID ask the TARDIS nicely, or was that not what the whole 'take me back' thing was about?
Oh, so Mickey was just upset because Martha was taken and taking it out on Rose?
Jack thinking John was talking about Firefly was not only amusing, but shows just how much he's gotten used to the 21rst century.
Ok, now I'm curious: what's John's plan?
What IS going on with Mickey?
Heehee, Martha gave Angela medicine. :D
Now I'm REALLY curious about John's plan. The suspense will kill me!
Poor Mickey, everyone's against him.

I love how Torchwood is clinging onto everything, while 10 and Rose are having the time of their lives. I think that this just emphasizes for me part of why Martha never stood a chance- Rose just gets The Doctor and his life style, while everyone else is trying to understand it.
Heehee... does this mean The Doctor taught Jack how to drive a 21rst century car? Because I could just totally see 9 sneaking him out to teach him while Rose slept.
I love how 10 tried to make it seem like they had no other way, but Rose read him like an open book. However, that must get annoying after a while.
Oh, and Rose cheating! It would be amusing if they had a sort of game on who could distract the other person the most in front of other people. And yes, Doctor, spouses can be VERY distracting ;).
Aw, kids. Even if they are larvae, that's just too cute for words.
"Small jaunt through the fifth dimension" I LOVE that phrase! Especially because jaunting implies being relaxed, and I highly doubt 10 is relaxed at all!
No, Jack, you can't have any fun. In fact, the whole universe is in on a conspiracy theory to keep you from having fun. He's SO lucky Ianto wasn't there. I love how you keep including flashbacks to the series... the who "can't i say hello" bit, and the flashback to TDD is making me smile with nostalgia.
And I get the impression that Rose and the TARDIS will be conspiring with each other for a while. I don't remember if this has been stated or not, but does Rose have a stronger connection to the TARDIS due to Bad Wolf, or is she just connected through The Doctor?

Oh, BAD 10, no swearing! You'll scare the kiddies. Good for Rose on telling him off. I agree with Jack- that was DEFINITELY more than 'just a bit'.
Why won't the big guns work, and just the bullets? that's interesting. And finally, some action!
| Deactivate This chapter 5 . 2/4/2011
Haha, Ianto's JEALOUS :).
Ooh, wiretapping the police. Is that legal, due to the fact that technically their above the police?
No, 10 doesn't tend to be happy when his companions, let alone his twin, get transported to another planet by a mysterious wormhole. It's a good thing it wasn't Rose.
Really, that all depends on your definition of 'cock-eyed', doesn't it. And poor Martha, she's not getting any breaks when it comes to guys, is she?
I REALLY don't like Christina. She can give it but can't take it, and I hate people like that.
And aw, John's so used to comforting Rose he doesn't even think about it.

Heehee,10 being mad about John hanging up on him is very funny. Also his "I wouldn't do that, well maybe" train of thought was spot on.
Rose's being upset about 10 deactivating Jack's "spock" is not only really amusing, but also a good through back to that whole episode. And really, 10 should have seen this one coming.
"I'll deal with you later Time Lord." is that a threat or a promise ;).
Is 10 groaning because she got the TARDIS to move, or because of something John has told him?
RE: Torchwood vehicles. Really? I've never seen the show, but that does sound very stupid. Jack should have known better.
"we're Torchwood. Nobody knows about us."
"Um, we know ALL about you. If you're trying to be secret, you should keep your name off the sides of your vehicles."
The Doctor must really be worried, as usually he's a lot quicker than this.
Christina is slow. Very slow. Their on a desert world they got to by driving through a wormhole in the middle of the street, and she's shocked by the fact that the only person who seems to know what's going on is alien? Idiot.
Ooh, yay, Tritovore speak. Believe me, it is very hard to do.
Yay for Max's alien tolerance! Now these people are NOT idiots.
Tom is an idiot. this story seems to be full of them.
Rose's first regeneration amuses me. aspirin ice cream, hee hee.
Ooh, and see, John, ties ARE good for something. Will he start wearing them more when River is around?
Out of curiosity, what does the pinky and index finger thing Rose does mean?
Love this series, love this chapter, love your writing :D
| Deactivate This chapter 3 . 2/3/2011
I don't know why, but John referring to Rose as his sister-in-law warms my heart.
I love the Wizard of Oz quote, but it kind of seems over used to me, just to let you know. You might want to watch out for that in the future.
Ok, he is SUCH a liar. Is he flirting, or does he just not want to deal with her?
Ok, Lennon sunglasses? He sure has a thing for artists of that era, doesn't he?
Very nice of John to not tell her what was in the sand. I would be disturbed if I knew.
Yay! the bus driver didn't go through. Poor John, though, having to give up his last banana :(.
Is that jigger pokery permanent? Because I don't really trust her.
Oh, yay, Martha and Jack! Yes Christina, two Doctors. It baffles us all. Yum.
That must be one big cat.
Oh, 10 called Martha and Jack too. Rose and John really are good for him.
"it's a twin thing." Yeah, more like a 'I'm actually his duplicate, and therefore we share a mind link' thing. but whatever floats your vote.
And I agree with 10 and Rose, he does have a reckless streak.

First thought about this chapter: Oh, Rose is ANGRY! haha, whatever it is, it's probably a long time coming.
Aww, poor Rose. What brought this on? What? He seriously hasn't told her he loves her outside of bed? She's right, he is such a guy. Oh, now 10's upset. knickers in a twist. heehee, don't know why that made me laugh so much. Really, every one died RIGHT after he said he loved them? She really did mean forever, didn't she?
Ooh, that's a very awkward moment at the end.

Ok, i lied I couldn't stay away. And your author's note got to me. Currently, I love you, and your stories, and I hope that stays the , John 'grooving out'. It may be just be, but I just get the imagery of him dancing very badly. And I love that 10 not only gave him a new coat, but that he got a whole new wardrobe. That's a very nice way to ask if he would mind them leaving him behind.
And of course 10 never thought of giving Rose a screwdriver. I love that John did, and I wonder if he only thought of it because he was constantly thinking of River.
Yum, chocolate bunny.
'laughs at social graces' I think this can be found under the 'rude and not ginger' section of his contract. And John is very quick for figuring out what Christina did so soon.
And I'm pretty sure that John is never going to be attracted to any woman but River, anyway. Out of curiosity, do you think that some of his attraction to her at this point is just fan boying over her?
Can't wait to read more!

I like your style of writing. The last part with the TARDIS was hilarious, please continue soon!
| Sunfall E chapter 7 . 9/22/2010
Get well soon. I enjoy this story very much. Thank you for letting us know what is going on.
| Silver Dragon c chapter 7 . 9/22/2010
Ohhh. Hope you feal better soon.
| Mayet chapter 6 . 9/18/2010
It's getting really intresting. I especially liked the detail with his eyes turning black, as if the Storm is coming out. I'd get scared too if the Doctor suddenly decided to not only yell but use the f-word.
I'm not sure I get the "stiff upper lip" comment from the other chapter when Jack found out every police officer was a UNIT soldier undercover. Probably because it's a cultural or idiomatic reference I, as a German, can't understand. Maybe you could help me out with that, please? Thank you.

"Just gimme, yeah?" That kinda reminded me of the 11th Doctor in the first episode. While I'm not the greatest fan of 10 regenerating, I must say I loved the whole "Give me your phone... Give me your phone!... Phone, gimme!" exchange with Rory not paying any attention to 11 and trapped in his own littany about "How can he be real?"
It was great, and John saying it now had me grinning from ear to ear(uh, that's a german saying, I'm not sure if you have it in the english language)
