It's great to see you returning to this story. I loved all the interaction between the characters. You do all of them so well. I especially liked the interplay between Amy and Martha about their differing experiences of motherhood. It resonated with me. Keep up the good work.

Yay! You have no idea how excited I got when I saw this in my inbox. And then when I saw that it was over seven thousand words long... :D
Anyway, that was lovely. I absolutely loved the quip about the apple and not being gun-shaped. And the rest of the chapter too, of course. You write Pond family fluff so well!
Also the whole Void thing was incredibly interesting. I had never made that connection before.
Very nice. :)

AMAZING... simply amazing. I loved everything about this chapter. The River and Jack bonding (to gather some blackmail material) and of course the chat between Amy and Martha. This story is my head canon to what happened with the Ponds while he stayed with them. I wish we could've seen somebody say all that to Martha about the Doctor and Rose, etc, you know, put how the Doctor loves everyone into perspective and how Martha is part of a group. That was well articulated.
Flirty Jack and the DoctorxRiver kiss was great too. I could just imagine Rory's discomfort at his daughter and his best friend snogging. :P And then the innuendo there at the end before bed. The Doctor's backpedaling after what he realized he was hinting at and who to about River had me smiling. It reminds me of when Amy had just met River and said "Ooh, Doctor, you soniced her" - it's like, "Let's see if you'll still say that, Amy when you find out that's your daughter." :P
Okay, I'm rambling again. Sorry... ;) Bottom line - excellent job yet again. I loved every second of it like I knew I would and I could picture everything perfectly in my head and could hear all their voices. (And it made me miss Matt even more, not that he's gone gone, but you know what I mean...). Keep up the amazing work! :D

Very nicely done.

I wasn't a fan of all the innuendo, but I suppose when you put Jack and River in the same room innuendo is the best you can hope to come out of the situation. I did love Martha, though - she's always been one of my favorite companions, and she and Mickey are delightful. Mickey has become a man, a great and hilarious man. I do like his title of "boss" for the Doctor even after all this time. Oh, and thank you, thank you, thank you for laying out that amazing explanation of the Doctor's relationship with Rose. I really didn't like Rose because of her romantic (or pseudo-romantic) relationship with the Doctor, and I always much preferred seeing the Doctor and River together; Amy summarized it perfectly when she said that River is maybe the only person who can really love the Doctor the way he should be. I've tried explaining my dislike for Rose to people and reconcile Rose and River's relationships with the Doctor, but from now on I'm probably going to steal yours. :)

River and Jack in the same room?! Brilliant! This NEEDS to be made into an episode (maybe for Comic Relief or something?)
I also liked that you touched on the bit with the Void. That is something that struck me the first time I saw that episode and I love the way you handled it here.

This is excellently written and well researched. Well done! The characters remain in-character throughout all the chapters. I recommend this to anyone considering reading it! Has both funny and angst moments. Great read!

Wow, this chapter was a riot. Mixed company can be so much fun, and I've always loved the idea of earlier companions meeting River, if only for the shock factor. Because of his "lone Time Lord eternal bachelor"-ness, as you so hilariously put it.
Also, I absolutely loved that last bit of dialogue. "You think I let just anyone treat me like a piece of furniture? She's obviously my wife."
That was just brilliant.
I am so very excited for part two. I simply cannot wait. :D

I am trying so hard not to laugh, this story is awesome.

WOOHOO! You've got to love that reveal. "She's obviously my wife." Thumbs up. Great chapter. Thank you for updating, and do so again soon.

I loved this chapter so very much! I haven't laughed this hard in forever! And I'm pretty sure they heard my laughs in australia! (I live in America) this is one of my favorite fics of all time and I love it because I've always loved fics about not just random adventures but things that happened in time elapses that are actually in the show (like the months where the doctor was staying at the Ponds :)) my wants for the next chapter are actually rather simple all I'd like is a kiss from doctor-to-river! Also I'd love some more classic flirty jack :) I'm just a small unimportant reader however so my needs aren't very important! I'm sorry this review is so long I just really love this fic _ Stay rad my fellow whovian
