Okay so as it turns out I was not emotionally ready to handle Esther's breakdown. It's cool, it's cool, I don't need my heart.
I'm getting those "I should get round to watching Torchwood" vibes again tbh

As if you found a way to kill her but not kill her. What I would do for even a fifteenth of your writing prowess and imagination ;_;
Lovely work as ever (and thank you for brining back Bad Wolf, I love her quite a lot)

So much for "this isn't very emotionally intense"...
Only you would link the last chapter of your previous story to the nearly last chapter of the next behemoth of a story! Most of us wouldn't have the patience.

Funny thing is that Marion had taken my attention the moment the Doctor first talked to her. I think I have been subconciously knew she was the daughter of the doctor. I suspect it clicked a bit when the Doctor picked up Jenny, Jack and when Marion was all grumpy that they're leaving to Demons Run, that's probably the point where I realize who Marion really in. And the name of the child just really confirmed and made me 95% sure it's Marion. The rest just confirmed fully when its stated.
Another funny thing is that 3 years ago when I was reading DS, I had wondered about Marion's role and her character cuz I am pretty sure I would have know her when I watched Torchwood Miracle Day. I realize she was an OC when I searched. Just, wow. You planned it long while and did it. I'm actually glad that the Doctor wasn't the type to dislike Marion and held his judgement. I like that moment because it meant even before the Doctor knew, Marion at least had some good interaction and that the Doctor was good to her with kindness and compassion.
Though when Marion joined with them to help them find their 'daughter', it honestly didn't occur to me she was going to kill the Doctor.
Wow. just wow. U know, I lost my interest reading in DW so I wasn't reading yours for years till today. It made me remember my love of DW and this story made me nostalgic and happy. I'm glad I decided to read it

Hahaha. I was right. I had been wondering what the hell the Doctor and Marion scene earlier was that about and the purpose, and I didn't really register when the Doctor had said that Marion reminds him a bit of her and himself.

...Oh. When you reach the scene about the gamma forest name, I realize the revelation and the hints you have been hinting. Hell, it's been clued for a long while. I realize you had been foreshadowing about the daughter, and the name just really clicks u know. I'm going to read the next chapter and see if I'm right

Very well done! The conclusion to the story arc was nice; I reckon the Jenny thing needed done and it fitted well; the Torchwood reveal was hilarious. So overall a great effort. Onwards, and keep it up!

Once again, I have but the slightest nitpick when it comes to an otherwise good chapter – in the Doctor's line about ex-pats in Mallorca, you have written it as it would appear in a piece of written work; whilst technically fine, since you're recording dialogue I would probably suggest actually writing "his-stroke-her hand-stroke-tentacle". Granted, it actually isn't as clear as "his/her hand/tentacle" but it feels better.
But the quantity of writing in this review dedicated to such a minor thing is rather disproportionate, as I would now have to write an essay about how good this chapter actually is. It felt slightly dialogue-heavy (which is no surprise when you're AUing a very dialogue-heavy episode anyway) and as such didn't perhaps have as much depth of emotion and terror as could have been achieved in such a terrifying episode. However, I have so far been very negative and haven't mentioned how good the flow was, how it was engaging and how there still was a very healthy dose of emotion present. So it's still a very definite 8.5/10 or 9/10, but it's just against your usual 10/10 that I have come to expect from you!
Keep up the good work, though – nice job!

I really liked this, and especially loved Aliya's realisation at the end. You did a fantastic job in noticing the parallel (and/or weaving your own storyline around the canon) and it felt totally seamless, too. I look forward to reading on!
Keep up the good work, girl dear!

Shock horror! Amazement! I have actually read and reviewed!
Good, glad I got that out of the way. I've missed your writing and I'd forgotten how good you are at these chapters. If I had to nitpick (which is the level at which I have to operate due to the standard of your writing) I would probably say that the detail about Buffy character preferences right at the beginning was a bit extraneous, particularly for somebody who has never watched the show. But that's such a minor point that I even feel slightly bad for mentioning it!
Apart from that, there was nothing negative I could think of to comment upon, and all the usual positives are very much here – great dialogue, great flow, very palpable emotion, all very realistic and in keeping with the character development. To save us all time, assume these are in place for every chapter unless I say otherwise!
Great work and keep it up. Onwards!

/sqUEAKS what a fabulous, sad ending.
It sucks that the new TARDIS trio and Esther can't be around each other, but it does make sense. Although they could have helped each other out a bit? But at least Esther has Gwen.
I've been so excited for PotNQL for aaaggeeess you wouldn't believe and I'm so glad it's finally up! :D

Ohmigosh,that last chapter was extremely heartfelt and emotional-I'm crying now.I absolutely loved the two stories you have written already and I cannot wait to read the next one! To answer your question about Jay, One day I had read an extremely good chapter in my opinion so I decided to see if there was any fan art or things involving your stories because they are so that led me to discover charahub!I am really excited with all the new characters and their background stories are rather interesting! Please upload your new story soon,I simply cannot wait!
Carry on writing,
