Just wonderful. Every word of it rings absolutely true, and I love the Doctor even more for it--even if he's manipulating Rose by holding the whole universe out to her. Maybe because he is, because he needs to.

This was perfect.

I was just going off what we were given--I am so blown away by the tag, it just seemed a natural extrapolation of the text.

thanks so much. I was just blown away by the tag, it seemed to be the thing to do.

Really, really lovely. I hate it when fanfics overstate the angst, and give the characters all this overt emotion which they don't possess. You've managed to get the balance spot on - just enough emotion without overplaying it.

An entire life measured in ten second intervals."

that bit IS the story, for me. Well, that and torture inflicted out of love.

That was really effective. Thank you!

(I feel for Jackie. She's a real person. A brash, annoying person, but a real person, who . . . well, as you say. She knew Rose wouldn't be back in ten seconds. She can only hope, now.)

thanks so much for the kind feedback--I'm very fond of Jackie as well. Both she and Mickey had really earned a place in my heart as the characters have developed. I felt for her so much in "WWIII" because I could tell Rose didn't Get It, but the Doctor SO did.

(nods) And it's not that this sort of cost to the friends/family of the Doctor's companions hasn't existed before, it's just that the series didn't really consider showing it before. And now they are.
