Great chapter, I am interested to see what part Torchwood plays in all of this.
| Kent Rigel chapter 9 . 11/13/2011
Intriguing set-up to the next adventure. I'm curious to see what's going on. Were the Tervtians carrying something they shouldn't have been? As a trading ship they should have some sort of cargo. Weapons? Unstable chemicals? Live cargo? Something more sinister? Perhaps it's just a stowaway? Or a pirate may have transmatted aboard the ship as a boarding party? Torchwood infiltrator stealing something and creating an explosion to cover their tracks? A lot of options available for interesting reading.
It just occured to me that with Gita Chandra on Bannerman Road already that evidentally Maria and her Dad aren't going to be in the picture. That's okay, it wasn't like she wasn't a good character but Rani was excellent. Will Luke be making an appearance sometime during this 13 episode arc? If there was one quibble I had with SJA above all else it was that early on Luke is so brilliant he could make the Doctor's technobabble almost ordinary and then suddenly they stopped emphasising his origin or that he was supposed to have the knowledge of all the people who were 'ripped' to make him.
It could be the first time Sarah Jane and Rose meet up? Beef the Bane up a bit to make them more relevent, a real Doctor worthy plot.
As to the name for the Xylok? Come on, she has to name it Mr. Smith. Not like Sarah Jane would for her own last name's sake... but after the last person who helped her so much with her work... albeit school science and math homework. The crazy bow-tie, tweed jacket wearing lunatic teacher. It might seem trite not to rename the Xylok but you can hang a lampshade on it so to speak by pointing out, in monologue or introspection by Rose, why she did. But if you feel you have to give it a different name, I get where you are coming from. It really depends whether or not you think the Xylok has to be 'male'. If you change it to being female you could name it Lumen or Eve. Or maybe a gender neutral acronym like TARDIS but appropriate to the computer... it'd be a bit of work though to come up with something clever.
Something else I'd like to see, because it hasn't really come up again in this story so far, Rose's art. It's kind of hard to imagine where it might figure it but I like art as a trait you've 'grafted' onto canon Rose. Maybe it could come up in conversation with a Tervtian who could ask questions about 'The Star Knight' when she asks questions about their species. Maybe the captain of the ship has a painting in his quarter or something which Rose could give a pleased appraisal and end up receiving it as a gift for her help.
Another thing I'd love to see is the Groske, the little blue guy out of the Death of the Doctor episodes SJA season 4. The episode says they were stranded on Earth in 2006 and were taken in by UNIT, earning their keep as workman. They'd be funny to see around the Tervtian ship. Also mentioned in the episode is UNIT's moonbase... come on, how cool would it be for Rose to be invited out the the moon to deal with something? Or maybe some sort of disaster/attack and she can call the Doctor to take her, Mickey and Malcolm up there. Just thought I'd throw that idea your way.
There are some spelling mistakes creeping in too. It doesn't distract much, but I'd just like to point it out.
'Rose moved forward to wear Etiger and his crew were waiting.'
'And you solicitors pay the taxes on it.'
'that this had beena good idea'
'has already rebuilt have of the computer system'
Strange, first time I read it I though UNIT had been mispelled UNTI a couple times, not there now though.
Anyway, like I said. Not trying to be critical in a bad way or annoy you. Just hoping I can help.

Good chapter. I'm sure that since everything seems to be going so wonderfully now, that it's all going to come crashing down soon...
| LilienRose chapter 9 . 11/12/2011
Omg what happend dont stop there.
I hope its not torchwood.
I dont know if I ever asked but is bad wolf going to be in this story?
| firehottie chapter 9 . 11/12/2011
One of the many amazing things about this story is its speedy updates! I can't wait to read more and find out what happens next!
| Mavan chapter 9 . 11/12/2011
Ok, so, another fabulous chapter. I just wanted to let you know how much I look forward to this story. I study in China at the moment and sometimes (read 9 out of 10 please) can't leave a review. Just know that I would be reviewing far more. v
In which case, *gasp of surprise*, what ever will happen next!
I look forward to the next chapter.
| Jinx13red chapter 9 . 11/12/2011
Nooooo, a cliffhanger
Names for the Xylok:
Zeck, Xavier, Xander or Hal
| Lita of Jupiter chapter 9 . 11/12/2011
Very interesting, I really like how it was coming along well, the explosion was a nice cliffies and how Tosh commented one Roses influence on UNIT was also nice and a little ominous for what might be instore for the future... I wonder how her experience fixing Eve's ship will relate to the Tervitians
I am trying to come up with a name for Xylok but it is hard... I keep wanting to call him Zordon after the power rangers
| seekerchasing chapter 9 . 11/12/2011
Malcolm's such a dork, it's so sweet. I love him in these fics.
Malcolm, Tosh and Rose are quite the dream team too.
I keep forgetting that Jackie has no idea of the alien parts of Rose's life. That's something to look forward too!
Once again, I love that the changes to Rose's life aren't not only improving her life, but other people's like Jackie and Mickey's Grandma. Well, assuming they get on with each other. They both seem to like slapping...
And an explosion! I hope UNIT hasn't changed their game plan now Rose is just starting to respect them again. Actually, its probably more likely Torchwood, right? I can't say I'm surprised you're ending on a cliffhanger, you mean person!
And sorry, but I'm terrible at naming things. My dog had no name for about 2 months after I first got her. um, John Smith. Ha, see, like the Doctor, I am extremely original. Although the Doctor would probably be really put out if the Xylok was named that, lol. I think it might be better if I just voted on everyone else's ideas:)

Hey! Cliffhangers are not fair! Please post as soon as possible I can't wait to see what happens next.
| Meltel chapter 8 . 11/12/2011
I love this story one of the best on here well done
| Saucy-Duck chapter 8 . 11/11/2011
Rose is making friends. I loved the end where it was noted that his belief in the doctor has transferred to Rose as well.
I can't wait to see where this all goes. You are doing such a great job with the characterizations. You're turning them into real people. Just fantastic! Love it.
Also, Torchwood can go fly a non alien kite!
| bookworm1137 chapter 8 . 11/11/2011
Ah, the plot thickens. I was wondering if Torchwood would make an appearance. Which is curious, actually, because I can't imagine this version of Rose antagonizing Queen Victoria nearly as much, not after years of dealing with jumpy UNIT officials. So either Queen Victoria is just naturally xenophobic, or something really unfortunate happens during your rewrite of Tooth and Claw?
| A Hippie Vampurr chapter 8 . 11/11/2011
Another wonderful chapter. I'm not to sure about names but here we go. Luis, Roger, Bob, Geoff, Pete, and Leonard. _
| romanticangel92 chapter 8 . 11/11/2011
Great chapter, good way to introduce Torchwood into the story.
