I will never get over this two. You are right. Their story is worse than Romeo & Juliet. But their story is the best that ever taught me of everything important regarding feelings, emotions, sentiments and most importantly love. I just watch them and observe and I will see what makes Rose Tyler everything to the Doctor. And this, this fic of yours amplifies it. I'll never let go of this ship. I will never make myself believe that in reality (stupid canon) that the ship has... I dont even want to say it, god. But you know what? I've been around this fandom for years and I cant, won't let go of the thought that Rose Tyler was made for the Doctor. Funny that, those idiots decided its not good of idea to actually give the Doctor, to finally, have his One. Dumb morons, letting loose the one arc that would've made the show even better. They just made it worse. Weelll then, thanks for this fic, though I wonder I haven't come across this one before, but since yesterday I've started reading ALL of your works (and reread those I've read already, could never get enough of you, you wrote brilliantly) and finally, finally saw this. I really needed a good cry. A reminder of something soo... like this. Thank you for tugging at my hearts. This is beautiful. You are magnificent! Keep up the good job. And I love you for being a TenRose/DoctorRose shipper, I know you are one of the biggest ones I ever knew, and I'm proud of it. It was a good choice that, this ship I chose to stand up to, although its been years, has been on top of all. We TenRose shippers are simply the best and loyal ones. God, thank you for you! Agh. Should stop right here ha ha.

So... I just watched Doomsday for the first time and then found I this. And this is amaizing. I teared up. And I don't usually do that, mind you. Wonderful, really, you have a gorgeous talent. You're one of my favourite writers, you know that? Well, now you do :D This is such a good fic, thanks for sharing it!

That was absolutely beautiful, Laura. :') I'm actually crying. See the tear on that smiley face? Yeah, that's me, smiling 'cause the writing is gorgeous and crying because it hurts.
Really well done.

I was literally sobbing by the time I got to the end of this. I am so sappy. (I was in quite the depressing, sobbing, i-need-comfort-this-is-so-freaking-sad point when I watched Doomsday...) your writing is brilliant and you captured the Doctor perfectly here :) it's so sad! *sniffle*

Okay, so I just finished S2 of Doctor Who, and even though I promised myself I would never read/write anything until I finished absolutely everything...I broke my promise to myself and found you. And thank the Time Lords! Your writing is magnificent and I feel like every story you write is like canon; it's very realistic. Fantastic job; I will enjoy working my way through your stories!
| LesleyS11 chapter 1 . 9/15/2011
Wow that was good, but so sad. :(
| CompletelyObsessive chapter 1 . 9/14/2011
I actually just cried all the way through that. It was so beautifully written. You had the... flavour of the Doctor just right, and even more on top of that. It was fit for bursting for the emotion in it. I love this, I think more than I've loved any other DWho fanfic. Now, i think I'm off the read mroe of your stuff...

I said I'd be back! Here's the more I promised...
“Do you know that I want to make love to you beneath the birth of new stars and the supernovas of old ones, to prove just how exquisite you are in comparison?
Do you know that I wish, with every atom of my being, that I could, indeed, tear the universes apart just to be with you? Because I do, Rose. I wish that so very much.”
The awesome thing about these lines is first, the beautiful imagery, which abounds throughout this piece, and the wonderful voice of the desperately grieving Ten.
“How many mornings must I turn on my side and face empty space, before I go mad with the melancholy of it all?”
I love the alliteration of ‘mad with melancholy’. Wonderful line.
“It's selfish, though, me hoping that. I told you once to live a fantastic life, didn't I? A fantastic life, do that for me. That's what I said. And you will, because you're brilliant, and I don't want you to be unhappy.”
I loved the reference to Nine, here. She is, indeed brilliant.
“It's all I seem to notice, now. This cool and empty palm of mine, hanging loosely at my side.”
Again you show us exquisitely sad and lonely imagery. Poor Doctor.
“You never even had to say anything. You'd just hold my hand and squeeze. And stroke your thumb across mine. And then everything would be better, and the nightmares of the War which used to plague my sleep would just...fade away.”
I like the fact that Rose’s presence sooths the Doctor’s demons.
This was a brilliants piece in both format and voice, Laura. Even though it was outside of your norm, you still managed to evoke strong emotion and show the Doctor’s distress at Rose’s loss.

Oh wow this was Beautiful! Really really gorgeous. I found myself just drifting away along with the Doctor, almost feeling his pain. You wrote this one really well. *Sniffle* tear-jerking. LOVED IT LAURAAAAA!
LOVE Shayanne xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Now why would you be afraid to post something this good?
No, not quite your norm, but that means you are stretching/growing as a writer. This is a GOOD thing Laura! (and you did such a lovely job)
I like the ideas in the early reviews (linking to Don't Let Go or a letter he never expects her to see). How about she finds it tucked away somewhere after she's been home in the TARDIS again? For the idea of a companion piece from her perspective, those notebooks are essentially journals. She'd been writing things she wants to tell him. If I were writing something like that, I think it would end up almost like a diary (Dear Doctor, today I went to... Not so different from Dear Diary, today I saw.. ) maybe she includes something like that. He reads while she is sleeping...
Just a thought or two from someone who can't do what you do, but is very glad you share with us.
