Now that is timey-wimey... causality really does make my head hurt sometimes!
Haven't read this story for a while, happy to come back to it today. Thanks for writing!

I'm really giddy right now because my birthday is March 28 and I couldn't stop smiling through this whole chapter. :-)

Awwww! Nice fix up!

I seriously hope this story will not end for a very long while. It is an absolute best version of the young River and I return and reread it each time I rewatch River's episodes (which happens a lot). Thank you so much for so many good emotions!

Oh, Mels' life is so sad, yet so happy, too. I've really loved reading these chapters. I hope you continue this for a very long while. ; - )

This is fantastic. I just read the whole thing in a few hours, and I want more.
Very, very well written.

Loved this. Once again, happy birthday. Those candles more than the party and cake would be the best gift to Mels. It is a beacon of light from her future: she is known and loved.

“Honestly, people blamed him for all sorts of things.”
LOL! I love that his first thought is that someone is blaming him for something. LOL! You can get conditioned to anything. (And it’s sort of like a little boy whose first response to a query is, “I didn’t do it!” :D)
“She pretended to adjust an imaginary bowtie; and the Doctor bristled.
"I do not sound like that!"
LOL! But she has a point, he is a hard act to follow.
"I bet she wrote all the interesting books on archaeology!”
OOOOHHH! NOw I want to read River’s archeology books! I bet those would be some absolute crackers! (Move over Indiana Jones.) Not to mention, I bet they’d be full of wonderfully snarky observations. :D [I sincerely think they should market a “History of the World by Professor River Song) book. In hardcover coffee table edition. I want this so bad. Can I have this for MY birthday?
“a monkey dressed in a tuxedo that can play 'Material Girl' on an accordion…?”
Hah! River would probably LOVE it, it would remind her of her Sweetie. :D
(which led inevitably to Mels' firm avowal -after sewing her fingers- together that she was no lady)…
“as his finger traced over bold black circles.”
I love that he’s reading this in Gallifreyan. That, even back then, before she knew she was the Child of The Tardis, Mels was writing in her “secret” language.
"Amelia, your voice is hitting pitches that only bats can hear."
ROFLMAO! And Amy can DO that too.
Mum forgot. Ouch.
Ooh, I hadn’t really thought about that. That their baby’s first birthday would fall when they already knew her as River. Now there’s a pickle and a half to be in.
Had he ever lost anyone special? Now you’re making me cry.
Naturally. Oh, sometimes you can really tell she’s his wife.
I loved this.

Awwh I am glad Mels got her cake xxx
| katzsoa chapter 23 . 9/13/2013
He's changing time for her...so sweet of him. Once won't hurt. I hope.
(I was kinda hoping someone would have mentioned the monkey in the diary entry...like it was sarcastically said that Mels was expecting one, but then Amy felt bad about it once she'd realized that it was a forgotten birthday. *shrug* What's here is sweet.)

I am finally reviewing this! First off brilliant job!
I really like the part with the 5 little words it does capture the spirit of The Doctor's realationship with Amy and Rory. He was a bit like an overgrown nursemaid.
You are doing a good job showing how Mels relationship with her mother is changing. Though she did not have a conventional relationship with her parent she still seems to be going through that important stage in life when you no longer view your parents as a god but as flawed human beings. though it hurts a bit to read about Mels irritations with Amy it is esssetial to the plot.
Though it is in fact a retelling of the events we saw in the series you still did a brilliant job with the Amy and Rory love each other revelation scene! You can really feel Mels' poignant loneliness right before the mysterious arrival of her secret admirer present. Thank you! Perfect and romantic! Excellent job with this time-shifted love story.

"If there's one thing about me you should know, it's that I'm never at a loss for words. Really; I can talk like you wouldn't believe."
LOL! Oh god I love that.
Sorry for not commenting more, I just got so swept up in the story I forgot. I'm loving the honest, lonely confessions of Mels here. You make her life, sad as it is, come alive. It feels like it all happened to a real person. A person I want desperately to have a happy ending.
"What I'm really trying to tell you is that one day, I'll be able to tell you exactly how much I care about you. That I admire you, and you're the most amazing person I've ever met. I'll be able to tell you everything."
Okay, you're making me bawl. A nice bawl, but still.
I love this idea, a pre-love note, getting a love note from someone you haven't even met yet. That's awesome.
"and perhaps even time to help something purple, fuzzy and squeaking that had taken refuge in his squash court."
LOL! Great writing! Have me crying with one sentence, then laughing with the next! Kudos!
Oh, you're killing me with this story! Is that the end? Is there more? (Do you perhaps intend to take Mels all the way up to when she meets the Doctor, then regenerates, and becomes River and decides to save him instead. Becoming a new person. A free person?)
Anyway, you've got me speculating, that's always a good sign. And you've fleshed out Mels as a real person, and a real incarnation, more than anyone else I've read. It's great to have another Time Lord, with multiple incarnations, to love.
