| Nia River chapter 28 . 2/27
I don't know why this doesn't have more reviews, because it's lovely!
I have a weakness for OC stories. /Good/ OC stories, that is to say. And this is definitely one. Admittedly, original characters have a bad rep, and people tend to shout Mary-Sue. But I feel you avoided that pitfall. Alice became real to me. She was fleshed out so subtly I didn't even notice it happening. She was likeable without being perfect. Ordinary without being boring. She was insightful regarding the Doctor, and such a good match for him.
The ending ... well, I may have got a bit teary there. Part of me wishes things had ended differently, but a larger part thinks it couldn't have ended more perfectly than you wrote it, and wouldn't change a thing. Which is an achievement because I normally don't like stories without a clear happy ending. So well done there. (Though, just between you and me, a little corner of my mind will imagine that Alice one day took a physical form once more and they /did/ get the happily ever after.)
(Just one niggling thing: the character in the story info. 10, 11 and 12 Doctors? Shouldn't it be 9, 10 and 11?)

"I know you, but I don't understand you. I don't understand why you do or don't do the things you choose. I know that I love you, and I know you hurt me sometimes,"
this is exactly how i personally feel about the Doctor in all the versions I have met so far. And Im glad Alice is giving him what for... just wish hed listen!

I get that he really cares for Rose... but I never understood truly why. I mean she's ... idk what I mean. And I guess this is more of a discussion we should have outside of a review but its what is sticking with me through this chapter. Shes Rose but Martha is Martha and Alice is Alice. they aren't parts to the Tardis, they aren't interchangeable.
Its amazing that a man who has dealt with so many different people/creatures would be so oblivious to those close to him. He had Jack pegged... mostly. But the women... not so much.

"ihave this sudden intense craving for tacos"... now I do too!
Oh how many of his companions have wanted to say these things to him? How many of them have tried but didnt get it out as well as Alice did?
On to the next chapter!

He's gonna break her heart like every other heart he comes into contact with isnt he? He is so oblivious!
| Siarh chapter 2 . 10/6/2013
He is a bit of a stuborn one isnt he?
The whoinverse is so perfect that you can come up with whole new creatures! :)

Ouch. That ending physically hurt. I had to stop reading for a while because the tear were making my eyes too blurry to see. That was painful. I think I might have just preferred her dying. And wow over fifty years…
I'm a sucker for OC's but usually ones that travel through time themselves (ex: Crossing Timestreams by SarBrooks or Sunstar Requiem by Rixel) but this one was easily just as good even without that added element.
I will admit when I started I thought Alice was going to be another boring, predictable OC, but she was truly amazing. Her character always managed to catch me off guard and was hysterical! I also think you captured the Doctor really well.
I can't believe it's over. Even though I knew it wasn't possible, I still found myself hoping that they really would travel together forever. They were perfect.
The eleventh doctor popping in was a really nice touch. I also loved how Alice was independent and just as clever as the Doctor in her own way. Oh, and Jack's bit was fantastic! So him!
Thank you so much for writing something so beautiful. I really, really enjoyed it even though it broke my heart. I really can't understand why it isn't more popular. It's without a doubt one of the best DW fics out there!
P.S. I just reread my review and I don't think I've conveyed how much I loved this enough. I really really really really loved it. A lot. I haven't been able to stop reading. And I also almost woke up the entire house first by laughing too hard then by crying too hard. You are a wonderful, amazing, fantastic, beautiful writer. Please don't ever forget that. Now, I'm off to see if you have any other work. Thank you again.
P.P.S sorry for the horrid grammar but it's two AM and I'm typing this on my phone!
