Poor Jack - it's so easy to forget sometimes the pain he experienced when Charlie died. He and the Doctor really do have something in common, don't they?

This feels like an ending...say it's not so! Well, I certainly am enjoying it...and to my fellow reviewers...
DON'T BE A CANON NAZI! THAT'S A PRIME WAY TO KILL A STORY!

The Words of Power! Gah I loved that episode. I haven't seen too many stories that incorporate it.
This story is quite well done, I'm hoping there's a sequel or you go into the past where the Doctor saves the planet. (Or if you already have in a different story whoops I haven't checked your profile yet) Would like to see SG-1 there too, after all they know about the Goa'uld.
I've discovered a slight continuity error. Jack shouldn't be leader of SG-1, it should be Cam. Or Carter. Daniel said Alterans, wondering if 'Grandfather' was Merlin. But I'm certainly willing to ignore that little hole. This works. Though I would like to see a Vala meeting the Doctor conversation, preferably in the TARDIS control room. Anyway! I'm getting away from myself.
Can't wait to read the rest!

the doctor has a respiratory bypass system, all time lords do, it is Gallifreyan physiology 101 which allows him to go without breathing for longer periods of time, also it has never been mentioned that river has two hearts, the only time lord trait she has displayed is regeneration. but otherwise great story.

NEED. MORE. CHAPTERS!
I am seriously hooked on this! And your portrayal of the dark Doctor was...bone chilling. I could feel his anger at the creature for hurting his wife so badly!
And again, the details you include, from the forest around them to the blood on the sand, really bring a vivid picture to mind! It feels like I'm watching an actual episode, and I can't wait to read/mentally watch more!

The Doctor has said that there's a power in words and names. I'm thinking in particular of "The Shakespeare Code," of course, but also "The Fires of Pompeii" a bit, and the mystery surrounding the Doctor's own name.
On a completely irrelevant note, it probably would've been a bit much for the Doctor to have used a vorpal sword as his mental focus for his on the Jabberwocky! ;-)

Okay, I haven't reviewed since chapter 1. Time to do so again. I am loving this story. It's distinctly NuWho in its flavor, but that's fine, because it really is great. Patiently awaiting the next chapter. Don't rush, take your time, make sure it's this good.

I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for more! You really have a way of describing situations, and I could see River in the monster's arms just from your description. I love this story! The way it's gone from a standard SG-1 episode to a Doctor Who episode to a creature all it's own so flawlessly is a testament to your skill as a writer. This story so far kind of reminds me of the recent episode "The Crimson Horror" combined with the Van Gogh episode (I don't remember the title) from the Doctor's side of it and from SG-1's side it reminds me of the episodes with Anubis' invisible super soldiers, only made so much better by the two being combined into one great story. I am really enjoying this! Keep up the good work, and I eagerly await the next chapter.

Ouch, talk about River!whumpage. That had to hurt.
I was reminded of the scene in "The Christmas Invasion", when the Doctor confronts the Racnoss Empress: "My home is far away and long since gone. But its name lives on: GALLIFREY." The legacy of Gallifrey looms large, doesn't it?

Again, a superb job! You really bring the narrative to live, especially with the way you write the details, the sights, sounds and feel of the environment. I'm curious what you are referring to when you say he lost Clara- is this an alternate universe? Or is it between the snowman episode and "The Bells of Saint John?"
Again, great job, and I look forward to reading more!

Your writing is absolutely amazing, i have no problem with it but ive never been much of a River and the Doctor fan. I would really intrested to know if you were obliged to write a crossover of dr who and stargate but with the doctor and clara. Keep up the fantastic writing!

Ah, the suspense is killing me! I loved this chapter.:D
| Evenmoor chapter 10 . 6/3/2013
Ouch, that had to hurt. I wonder if this creature is like the thing from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's episode "The Storyteller"?
Anyway, good job! Looking forward to chaper 11.

So far this is very good. All of the characters seem to be in-character and it 'feels' like either a 'Doctor Who' or 'SG-1' episode. It's nice to see the Doctor and River traveling together; they do make interesting companions despite the 'one lunatic per TARDIS' rule. The only mild criticism I can offer is that I think perhaps the Doctor is being more demonstrative about his feelings towards River than I can imagine him being on-screen. After 'Name of the Doctor', we pretty much know how he feels about her, but I can't quite imagine him acting like that, especially when he knows where and when she actually dies. I know, 'time can be re-written', but I'd have to guess that River's death at The Library must be a Hell of a fixed point in time since without it, he'd never have even know who she was; lots of other fixed points tied to that one, I'd think. Still, great overall, and the character interaction is wonderful. Looking forward to seeing where you take this!

I really am enjoying this story! You've definitely captured the characters very well! There's little more to say other than: good job, and keep it up!
