Now granted, it's been a while since I've read the chapters previous to this one, but I believe this is the best one yet! The tension and pacing was fantastic, gripping until the very end. Great work! And your portrayal of the Doctor was so realistic! You definitely understand his character-and Amy's and Rory's too, honestly-REALLY well.
Looking forward to the next chapter! :)

well... at least he isn't poking it with a stick.

Well, this is going to be interesting...

Wow, it just keeps getting better!
(Ok, maybe not better for the characters living it, but you know what I mean.)

I can completely see the Doctor staring rapturously at the treecat while everyone else looks on in horror...
And the exchange between the Doctor and Rory (Amy on certain energetic mornings being more magnificent, LOL) was hysterical. I'm almost sorry Rory didn't say it aloud (certainly, with River in his life the Doctor could agree), but probably it's better for everyone that he didn't. (Less mental scarring.)
'Great, I'm hunting a giant leopard in my bare feet.'
Oh, Rory's wry sense of humor cracks me up.
Even if it's necessary, it must be so painful to the Doctor to know that he played a part in something dying. This whole chapter was so well written, I was on the edge of my seat! Really loving this story so far!

Really loving the descriptions of Yblis. (Especially the idea of the 'different looking leaves' that turn out to be lettuce. LOL!
Also. I doubt the word practical was ever used to describe the Doctor, and I don't blame Rory at all for snorting...
You've really got their characterizations down well, here. Amy, not scared of anything for long, and the Doctor shadowing Rory figuring he wasn't being at all obvious...and Rory, completely seeing through that. And then the end- Rory seeing someone in danger and running off to help without thinking of his own fears.
(I'm really missing the Ponds right now...)

‘ "Doctor..." Rory pleaded.
"Rory..." Amy said in a hurt voice, looking at him as if he'd betrayed her.
Rory crumpled at the disappointed look in her eyes. "Fine. But if we fall to our deaths, don't say I didn't warn you." ’
Honestly, I’ve got this image of Rory screaming ‘I told you so!’ as they plummet through the leaves… but this entire exchange (him pleading with the Doctor, Amy pleading with him until he had to give up) cracked me up because it’s so very them.
You’ve snuck in a great echo from Classic (the Doctor nonchalantly remarking that he doesn’t like heights either). Things that caused his deaths must actually make him really twitchy when he had to face them again.
Aaaand… trust the Doctor to activate his ‘screamer’ button. (Why do I have a feeling River would have also?)
So. The Trelwin. Not so much on the *cusp* of sentience. Seems they are rather intelligent and helpful. Interesting.

‘Too much experience with enthusiastic scientists…’ well, that sums up the Doctor. And I do love how Sondherson just stared at him…
Also, I bet that the Doctor was clipped into his chute (tweed poking out at odd angles) he must have looked like a ruffled baby bird…
Have a feeling that the cherries smell is going to be important, sooner or later. (Probably sooner? I’m one of the few people in the world to never see Avatar, so this story is completely new for me with no expectations. Loving it, and the visuals of the world you’ve set up so far!

Brilliant as usual. I'm so glad your finishing this story. Don't worry I think people will be reading this long after you finish it. I do think you might want to find another word to describe the first body, survivor just doesn't seem to fit. Otherwise it is wonderful. I'm assuming Rory survives, but whose behind it all? I love your descriptions and the Trelwins are remarkably vivid characters. You have a real gift.

My word, but you've come up with a marvelous story! It's just one thing after another, and none of it expected. What's next?

Oh dear. The Doctor won't be happy they killed a herbivore.

Yikes, cliffhanger again!
Very exciting chapter, and I hope we learn what's going on very very soon!
