This was possibly the best Doctor Who/Harry Potter fanfiction ever written. I've stayed up well into the night reading this, and it was worth it. Marvelous job. It was a fantastic read.

By now, practically every character has died or sort-of died at least once. Jack has died a few dozen or several hundred times, Tonks and Barty twice and the Master, the Corsair and River once. Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I find it amusing how casually us sci-fi/fantasy fans talk about people dying repeatedly, being cloned, being possessed by aliens, turning invisible, traveling in time etc. It's as though those were normal everyday things.
The plot of this episode got somewhat confusing towards the end. It's also largely inconsistent with revelations made in canon after it was written/planned but it's rather entertaining nonetheless. The emotional stuff and the Nightmare Child were great.

Typical Jack. Flirting with people who keep killing him over and over again. Maybe the wizarding world will now start calling him the man who lived and lived and lived and lived and lived.
The existence of Doctor Who in this universe implies that John Barrowman exists there too. The mental image of Jack flirting with his actor is hilarious.

It's possible the Doctor does, in fact, hear Gallifreyan pretty often. I have this theory that the TARDIS can translate at least some types of Gallifreyan but won't do so automatically. Maybe the Doctor is actually speaking Gallifreyan much of the time. He can definitely speak English and a lot of other languages but surely, speaking Gallifreyan would make talking about time travel much easier. I would expect Gallifreyan to have a few dozen tenses. Real-life multilinguals usually choose the language they talk/think in based on what they're thinking/talking about (that is, if the other person speaks several of the same languages). For instance, I think in English when I'm thinking about the TV shows I watch and in Finnish when I'm thinking about my family.
I find it a bit odd that the characters haven't even expressed their concern for Jack for a long time.

I laughed at the part where the Doctor empties his pockets.

"Don't let the potatoes kill you. That's my job." Aww. That's so romantic in the twisted Doctor/Master sort of way. Tonks can see it too. I agree that Andrew Scott would make for a good Master. After all, he's already played a very similar character. Although Benedict Cumberbatch would be a good choice too - it helps that he's naturally ginger. The Doctor would be so envious of him.

I can't get the thought of a Moody that's a part of a dozen secret organizations and has extreme paranoia combined with a billion crackpot theories ala JLU's Question out of my head. It cracks me up.

You've actually managed to do these "character X is a Time Lord" twists right. Most of the time, especially in crossovers, they just feel cliched. If the Chameleon Arch is involved, writers often ignore the issue that the human character effectively dies when the watch is opened. That plot twist about the Corsair being Sirius was nice. However, I would expect the Doctor to react more strongly to finding out what he was like as a human.
You know, I've often wondered what the Gallifreyan circulatory system is like. It makes sense that they have two separate circulatory systems - if they didn't, they probably wouldn't survive when one heart stops.
The Doctor just had to comment on Arthur Weasley's hair color. I hope he gets to see the rest of the Weasley family - it would be pretty entertaining to read about his reaction to that.
The Doctor and the Corsair discussed the events of Ten's last episode. Does this story take place in an AU where Ten regenerated later or is that a continuity error?

Awwwww. I love TARDIS POV things. Heck, I love reading (mostly) anything (of reasonable quality) from the point of view of something/someone that doesn't think like a human does. Are there more TARDIS orientated chapters? Or I could just keep reading. Yeah, I'll go do that.

first i must say, oafjltjato! no meaning to it just... anyway, this is an incredible story. since i read your story and as i was reading it i kept thinking "but what if this happened instead or that? what if..." etc. etc. etc. i never really thought about dr who fanfics before except for dr 10 is barty crouch/meets barty crouch. you explored so many possibilities on who the dr was and how he would act in certain situations. if you decided to go over this and revise it again drawing out where the dr is telling himself he doesn't deserve to be saved and such could make the drama that much better and heartfelt, but that's just me. i really just wanted to say this fic is awesome.

Oh I dearly hope that your plans for Barty Jr include tricking him into thinking he's a struggling actor named David Tennant :)
| Ser o no ser chapter 34 . 3/24/2014
I was really happy with this story up until this point. Maybe it's because the Doctor hasn't had the time to face Tonks' death but it feels really disingenuous/false. Like you killed Tonks just for the sake of killing her. Idk.

Oh wait ...wait. Does the lock ...is that refering to the actual crouch jr in the TARDIS? Or...?

Finally found a good long story that I can take forever to read!
