This is not good for Mcfly.
| NormalityIsNonexistent chapter 3 . 2/7/2012
This chapter made me think of The Hungry Earth. What were those aliens called? Anyway, I wonder what will happen to Marty.

Time rift series four? I'll need to find the episode. I was thinking more series five or Torchwood.
| NormalityIsNonexistent chapter 1 . 2/7/2012
I wonder what alien it is this time.

It could also be a subconsious version of Actor Allusion. After Back to the Future 2 and Adventures in Babysitting, Shue's best know role is the prostitute in Leaving Las Vegas, which she received an Oscar nomination for. Given all the creepy characters Crispin Glover has played. I wonder if we'll see a more ominous version of George McFly somewhere in time. Since this is stylistically a Doctor Who story, I think you should keep it above the Watershed in terms of language.

So Elizabeth Shue is in this after all. Technically a Shemp is when you dummy someone up with a wig or these day computer graphics, when the original actor is unavailible. A Doctor Who example would be Sylvester McCoy wearing Colin Baker wig just before infamous "bumped my head on the console" regeneration. This would just be acting for two, identical ancestor. Obviously it fits with the uncomfortableness of the first movie, where his mom is hitting on him. This time he is facing an unconsious fear, with the doppelganger of his girlfriend (who he knows he's gonna marry) is a whore.

You did an excellent job setting up the tension in this chapter. It's your best-written chapter so far even if the principals are not it in has a true teaser quality. Hopefully. this won't like the Visitation where we won't see these characters again.

Awe! I loved Daisey! You're right - Daisy Jennifer.
The interaction between the Doctor and Marty is hilarious! The first chapter had me grinning. Off to the next episode!
| Tamira chapter 7 . 6/6/2011
I think it should be Daisy's choice actually. Would she, if she knew aobut Jen decide for a future schild that is to her just a possiblity or for her own life? complicated by the fact tha Jen would be there, to see! - I want to think that she would decide for Jennifer's life and her son's, and probably one more person in between... but I am not sure, because honestly? Her life is pretty hard and she deserves, deserves a better one! - I wished they at least had given her enough money to escape, but probably even that oculd have set everything off, as she would have moved from where she was to somewehre else and the boy was never born.. .now, the question is if not already through what happend things would change in her life and other htings NOT happen.. .and hten I think that the timeline in either universe seems to have the tendency to somehow fix itself. Especially in Marty's workd, where evne though his parents grew to be realy different than in their original world they still ended up with the same three children...

Well... uhm... THIS is not what I cal la peaceful solution... The Doctor is not ging to be pleased, I fear. Those stupid guys would nto listen to reason, but I am not sure I feel confortable aobut Daisy killing htem like that... Dynamite, though... spunky girl throwing dynamite around... hmmm ...you know I might revise my idea of who Daisy reminds me and say, from the little bit I know about her it would probably be Ace, actually...
| Tamira chapter 5 . 6/6/2011
Oh for.. .it is one of those stupid misunderstandings that lead to deaths situations common for Doctor Who! The question is now, how... Where the aliens shot down? If yyes, by whom? Huanity at this point in itme is not exactly great with shutting down htings high up in hte air, or even space...
Or what else oculd have happend your aliens saw as thread? And hwy owuld that lead to them killing kids? or did they realy? is htere a third party involved?
I can certaintly see why you are having fun writing Daisy. I for sure will miss her when time comes to part from this story. She would have made for one awsone companion! (I wished there was a way to at least make sure she won't be poor and all alone anymore...)
| Tamira chapter 4 . 6/6/2011
Well, ultimate, but it cna't do wood. ;)
Marty, Marty, Marty.. .Somebody SAW you falling, oyu know she saw you falling.. .the sensible thing would do to wait till she can orangize help... But of course, when has marty ever been sensible (apart from the time he did NOT get into that stupid car race, that is) ? He is more the sort of person who would try to find his own way out of a hole...
And now the Doctor and Daisy will have to save him...
4 arms? you know, izt is weird, oyur aliens already sound more diverse than most Doctor Who aliens. There are not many four armed ones around, I think...
| Tamira chapter 3 . 6/6/2011
Well, I do care what you do to Jennifer! I was mad with how they pretty much left her out of Back to the Future 2, when they COULD have given her an active role but just made her be all unconcious and useless and I felt cheated for interesting what could have beens when I watched the movies the first time... And now she is, again, all unconcious, poor girl is missing all the fun! :p
But to be honest, Daisy is already a far more interesting character than Jen ever was. - She is stubborn and spirited and somehow cyinical, vulnerable in a way she probably does nto let many people see... (god, htis description sounds a bit like Donna, damn it! :p) I have a feeling my question of if her job is out of choice or of neccesity already has itself answered to necessity, too... I like her! - But I sure hope she is NOT going to fall for Marty, because that owuld just be awkward (and it would be exteremly weird if she HAD to to conceive a child that owuld be Jen'S grandfather, or something... stable time loops like this don't seem to happen in the BttF-Verse, but occacionally DO in the Whomiverse...)

Oh my ... So, Marty has an uncle who is most of the time in jail (yep, I remeber THAT from the movies, even htough it never played much of a role and was more of a little joke) and Jen has a great grandma or something who is a prostitute... Hmm, why not? Wonder if by choice or by nessecity, though...
Poor Mary, that is going to be realy awkward for him, now.
I think Daisy is an interesting character. She dmight look like Jen, but I have a feeling she is totally her own character.
And it is about time Marty stumbles about an idetical relative of her, as many similar looking raltives as there are running around in the Back to the Future- verse. ;)
and Seamus! Wow, wonder if he ever will regonize Marty. He'd probably be slightly ocnfused on how that boy never seemed to have grown up (wich is Mary's best protection against being regonized ten years after his visit, actually... everybody would expect him to be older... well, that and that he is supposed to be dead, I guess...)
This is great so far.

This starts... realy creepy! - Dead cows! And that poor little calf! and... Darn you, I ocjuld see it all just in an actual Doctor Who episode!
It's funny though. So far your stories are not scarier than normal Doctor Who epis and those are over here (New Zealand) shown with the equivalent of the K rating... After all as weird as it sounds Doctor Who counts as "Family show" and they have child aged test viewers. ;)
