Wow. Just wow. Even if you don't read it i'm trying to leave an eloquent review anyways.
I just found this story and read the whole thing in one go.
Not gonna lie, i was very hesitant when i started because i love DW as it is i don't really dig the human Doctor, no timey-wimey stuff. I believe that life can be shitty as it is, there is no need for my favourite sci fi/fantasy character to go through the stupid, pathetic and sad things the rest of us humans go through on a daily bases. But you completely blew me away with this amazing story.
I'm not sure what it says about me but i felt so identified with the Patches from the early chapters hahaha.
You also managed to make me hate for a little while my favourite DW character ever! (River) whom i realized that if you place her in a non timey-wimey environment the psychopathic side shines like fireworks lol.
So i guess i want to thank you for the mostly-pleasant-but-very-painful read. I'm a bit of a masochist anyways so it's fine!
You're an amazing author! Keep up the good work!

I love you. I love this fic and I love you. I can't even remember how I stumbled across this story 3 years, but I can't even being to express how much it means to me. Jamie, or 11, with all his noodle-y gestures, is utterly bursting with originality and is so unknowingly and so unapologetically GENUINE—always barreling towards things/people he finds fascinating. I wish all people were like Jamie. I wish I were like Jamie. Dearest Jamie. We could all be better, happier, more interesting people if we approached life like him. And although he only exists in your fic, he's honestly a character I look up to (sorry that sounds super cheesy but it's true). Me, like Amy, stare enraptured, “the way art students must stare at paintings: with loving obsession.” And Amy. Oh Amy Pond, is so human, so relatable, so dynamic, so problematic, so HUMAN, so great for Jamie. I'm so sorry I'm rambling but I really really love this fic like so so much. I've read this fic over and over and over and over again since I discovered it like 3 years ago on AO3. And it's in my top 3 all-time greatest fanfics EVER read. And this fic is so different from any other AU I've ever read, and at first I was skeptical b/c it didn't refer to the Canon much, but you quelled those concerns so brilliantly. You did such a fantastic and brilliant job creating this piece of fiction, period/full stop. Truly, truly amazing writing and IDEAS. There were so many times when I'd just have to take a break and stare at the ceiling for 10 minutes to snap back to reality and remind myself that: yes, I do live in NYC like these characters, and I've sat on those same rocks Jamie and Amy have in Central Park, but I can't go see them in person, because well, it was all in my head :(. And I could vividly and completely visualize EVERYTHING in this story—I always get complete immersed in it, it's insane. Like I demanded my best friend read this, even though she knows absolutely nothing about Doctor Who, and she's in love with this fic now, too. And we'd be reading side-by-side and I'd check up on where she was upto and I'd read one line and I'd know exactly where she was upto in the plot. ! I know this story so well and it makes me so happy. You've enriched my life and my imagination and I am so entirely grateful. I love you, dearest writer. I love you. You have an amazing, amazing talent and I look forward to reading more. ️ All my love, Fiend.

That was a great story. Thank you, thank you for giving it a happy ending. It's 3:30 in the morning and I don't know what I would have done if it hadn't ended happily after all that. That's the beauty of fanfiction after all, we get to have the happy endings. Thanks again for the marvelous story.

Well, these past 24 hours haven't been my most productive, but they've certainly been enjoyable! I devoured this story and loved every second of it! Your voice is so clear, your style is unique, and the passion is palpable. I look forward to more stories from you, regardless of the characters! You truly have a talent; please develop it! Don't let it go to waste.

Oh! I cried so happy to see where their story took them. I have to say I love your writing style and voice. It tells their story perfectly. Thanks for a great read!

Great ending! I love all the character development in this story and that it takes place over a long period of time. The Pictorial section of this chapter was wonderful. The ending was perfect!
I'm looking forward to future one shots/stories :)

Great ending! I love the character development. And the two hearts surprise made me giggle so much. I can't wait until your next story!
| AnotherDarnApple chapter 21 . 8/19/2013
Haha would it be too much to request an off-shot chapter? Or maybe a one-shot on this particular line in Chapter 11: "In the bedroom, she opens the drawer and discovers not only the wallet but a half-depleted jar of lube, which she stares at for far too long. The main question is his or theirs, either answer bringing different upsets. Entirely flustered, she takes the card and runs back to her computer."
IT'S ALWAYS BUGGED ME. THAT LUBE. hahahahahaha
Great job as always. I'm a huge huge fan.

Oh wow - an epilogue I didn't know I wanted but then you proved that I did. Just like this story. :-p What a whirl-wind it's been - and I love that you placed them firmly in the realistic married coupledom instead of all hearts and flowers (though I didn't doubt you would.) I absolutely died at this line: "Nat screams, and he starts to cry too, so Jamie tries to hug them both at the same time and starts singing the Itsy Bitsy spider, like that's going to do something." Something about that image just made me giggle and aww with delight at it. It was so wonderfully domestic, yet so very Amy and so very Jamie. I just adored it. What a beautiful, heart-wrenching, twisty, curvy lovely story. Brava brava brava! :)

I stared reading this story since chapter 1 ! an I cant believe is over ! maybe you should do like a spin off ...
| Coulthardyy chapter 20 . 8/13/2013
Oh my goodness.
This was the perfect ending. I love the way you write and I have loved this story from beginning to end.
Thank you for breaking my heart and patching (wink) it up again.
"You're Paris, except I never have to leave" was read through a veil of tears.

This was seriously the best fanfiction I have ever read...possibly even the best book I've read. And I read a lot.
Reading this story was a wonderful journey with all the ups and downs, laughs and tears, highs and lows, joy and anger you could ask for. I am sincerely sad to see that this fanfiction has come to an end. On the other hand, I will be awaiting the epilogue eagerly.
The character development and plot structure were definitely the high points of this story. Even though you used characters from Doctor Who, you gave each person their own new personality, which is very hard to do seeing as they all already have one set for them.
Jamie and Amy's relationship with each other made me want to yell at each other for being so thick at times. They had their good times and their bad times, but in the end the only thing that mattered was that they had each other. I applaud you for being to end the story with an original twist instead if heading off into the cliché road which you could've done easily.
Having Jamie and Amy reunite in front of Van Gogh's paintings broke my heart a little, considering the whole romance (dare I call it that?) between Amy and Vincent.
All in all, this fanfiction has been an emotional rollercoaster. I hope you write more Amy/Doctor stories, or spinoffs of this one because I would really like to see more of this. Thank you for sharing your talent with us and working so hard to give us a satisfying chapter so frequently.
