Reviews for Who She Could Never Be

AHHHHHHHHHH! Oh my goodness, this was amazing! The fears, and Jack... oh everything... What the Doctor said to her... and then she fell asleep! This story was great!

Such a lovely story. GiTF was a good episode, but it made me so angry that the Doctor could just up and leave Rose like that. And I think it's even worse to hear those involved speak so casually about the Doctor's "tragic romance" with Reinette. In my mind, it should have never happened. This fic takes away some of the pain of watching that episode, so well done!

Oh, this was just heartbreaking. :( I know what it's like to watch someone you care deeply about, and whom you think cares for you, swans off with someone else. It makes you feel exactly like Rose felt, because obviously there must be something you're lacking, something the other woman has that you don't, or he wouldn't do that. If you were enough, then he'd want to be with you, wouldn't he?

And no amount of logic-ing by friends can convince you that's not true, because even if you normally have a fairly decent self-esteem (which, let's face it, Rose doesn't really), the facts are staring you right in the face every time he walks away with her.

But the redeeming thing about your story was the Doctor's reaction. I admit, the line toward the end about how he's going to wait to see how much she remembered made me mildly nervous. He really gave himself an out there, if he decides to take it. Again, personal experience leads me to believe that of course he will... but then, I've never been in this situation with The Doctor.

I wanted to cry for Rose when she just couldn't believe he cared for her, even when he was sitting right there telling her he did. Funny thing, that the Doctor believed his snogging her might make things worse, when the fact is that actions will always speak louder than words. And the other truth is that at that moment, she needed some really loud actions, because his chasing after Reinette was the equivalent of a shout, and it's not the kind of thing he wanted to be shouting at her.

And I think I took that metaphor as far as it can go...

In some ways, I'd really love to see a sequel to this, or even have this be the beginning of a short chaptered story. There are some issues here that one snog and a night spent together won't solve, and it would be interesting to see them work through it. Plus, I liked the bending of space and time you did to get Jack there. That made me happy. Oh, and Mickey isn't there! Also a good thing. What in the universe was he thinking, inviting Mickey along with them? Sorry, tangent...

So yeah, I'd love to see more of this if you've got it.

So very sweet. I have been reading a lot of psycho Rose fic lately and I like your version so much better, altho when she was left, perhaps she could have turned vengeful and bitter.

I really liked this one. Usually I'm not the biggest fan of GitF fanfics, but this was really good.

Very nice! My favourite line: "He's so selfish without even realising, you see. It's not his fault, he just is. His vanity and his eagerness to please, to impress...he wants us all to adore him, and you know what? We all comply, because he's so easy to fall in love with. But he's so bloody hard to be in love with." Wow. No that is one scarily accurate description! Loved the part about Jack eavesdropping! xX

Oh that was written BEAUTIFULLY! I wanted a good fic of those feelings after the girl in the fireplace episode :) Made my evening! :D

Love it!

This is just so perfect. You displayed the characters perfectly, as well as their emotions. I cannot put into words how much I adore this story.

Usually, I don't review one-shots, but this one deserved it. Absolutely brilliant.
