Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from markw
Review:
You did say it was the Eleventh Doctor at one point. I think. Never mind.
Comments from author:
Nope, not once: I promise. It's all good.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from markw
Review:
This is the Eleventh Doctor? Then what about Amy and Rory?
Comments from author:
Nope: it's stated quite clearly in the author's notes that this is a Tenth Doctor fic. What's more: it was published in December of 2008; Eleven made his debut in January 2010 and Amy and Rory did not appear until April of that same year, so I'd actually be much more concerned if I **had** anticipated their existences. I'm good, but I'm not *that* good (and if I was that good, then Mr. Moffat would owe me a considerable amount of coin. =)

If you have the time, I'd suggest giving it a second pass as a Tenth Doctor story (he also, unlike Eleven, has numerous freckles). I try to stay as close to my characters' voices as I can; if this Doctor is coming off as more Eleven than Ten, then it might be worth it to go back and do some minor tweeks.

Thanks for your interest and taking the time to leave feedback. Cheers!

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from naplam
Review:
Your quest seemed to be to finish Doctor Who off, that's the only reason I said it. Because it's supposed to be the Eleventh Doctor, but Amy and Rory are not mentioned, it's outdated anyway. And the Doctor really was seen in BTVS Season Eight, so there's no need for fanfiction. Forget it. Bye.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from naplam
Review:
The Doctor has encountered Vampires. State of Decay, 1981. Quite a few years before Buffy.
Know how to really kill Doctor Who? Get enough people to stop watching it and it'll be cancelled. Won't bring Buffy back, though.
Comments from author:
Thank you for pointing that out: I know that now, but was unaware at the time I wrote this story nearly three years ago (I was still catching up on Classic canon at the time - State of Decay first aired two years before I was born). As indicated in the author's note, this story was written on a whim, a gift for a friend, in a few short hours and not beta'd. The friend enjoyed it nonetheless and so I've let the mistakes lie. You seem rather angry with someone but I'm afraid you've mistaken me for someone who has any real control over these characters - you should also note the disclaimer. I also have no interest in killing Doctor Who nor in bringing Buffy back, but good luck in your quest, whatever that may be.

Review:
That was beautiful. Haunting and dark and sad but also beautiful.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from Keshkreature
Review:
That was really beautiful and sweet. It makes it really easy to picture the two of them together, in the meandering way that they finally get around to it.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from wyvernwolf
Review:
Very enjoyable read. I think you captured the Doctor's reaction to this new world perfectly. His disbelief and anger that they were playing around with forces they didn't understand and his opinion that they should talk first and slay after. And then his actual run-in with a vamp was classic!

I like how you show the growth of their relationship and how you insert these small scenes showing them together and the slow buildup between them. All lovely and very sweet.
Comments from author:
Yeah, it was an odd little fic that seemed to just write itself. And then people tell me all these clever things that I did, and I look back at it and say, "Hmm, I guess it does do that. Cool." I wonder if it's still clever if I had no idea I was doing it. =) Anyway, I'm glad that you liked it, and thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from MissJulie
Review:
*giggle* I should question you more often if this is the result: Me getting what I want! You delivered, and I'm very happy.
Comments from author:
I was as surprised as you. Try not to bury me under too many plot bunnies, even though they are ever so very warm, soft, and fluffy. And I'm glad the person to blame is pleased.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from SlowMercury
Review:
This is really sweet. I like the slow development of the relationship, and the eventual mutual respect. I like how the Doctor has to know everything, and he's dealing with things that are sometimes unquantifiable.
Comments from author:
Thanks a lot. I'm always worried about my Doctor characterizations, I'm happy to hear you think this one rang true. Thank you for reviewing.

Review of chapter "No Need to Explain" from Ddraig
Review:
Very nice. I can see how the relationships and his acceptance of the new universe all develops in a very 'Doctor' like way.

I love Buffy's POV on him.

Thank you for sharing!
Comments from author:
Yeah, I just love putting her together with the ornery old fellow. Glad you enjoyed the results. Thanks for the review.
