crazyandsexy asked: Aaa!!! I squealed so loud in the tram and people looked at me but I couldn't stop myself because Sam Tyler in a coma! Thank you so much for this LoM reference! And I love your story so much, it's clever like a fine puzzle slowly coming together ♥

I’m so happy you caught the LoM reference! I was hoping someone would.  It’s one of my favorite shows and actually led me to return to watching Doctor Who (yes, there’s a story there).

I’m glad you like The Choice. It’s causing me a lot of anxiety since I’m posting as I write rather than having a bunch of chapters completed before I begin posting. And as far as the puzzle analogy goes, that’s exactly how I view writing all my stories. When I start I have various scenes in mind, and I know how it’s going to look (sort of) at the end, and then I have to put the pieces together in a way that makes sense and somehow connect them together.

Thanks for the note. I always love to hear from you!

Anonymous asked: Do you update your fic every 10 days??

Sure seems like it, doesn’t it? I was trying to post once a week, but I’ve been really struggling with writing these days and it’s been taking longer than I expected it would.

Chapter Eight

Heart pounding, Rose watched as the Doctor—no, John, she reminded herself—went back into the garage to get to work. Once she was sure he was gone she began to giggle giddily. When one of the customers in the waiting area looked at her curiously, she quickly slapped her hands over her mouth for a moment to stifle the sound.

It was him. He might not be himself, he might think he was someone else, but it was him.

And somehow, despite whatever had happened to him, on some level he still remembered her.
