Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Big Brother" from daveykins
Review:
Thank you for the thanks :)

It's a great story and I'm pleased to re-read it again!

Look forward to future follow-ups ;)
Comments from author:
Without you it would probably never have occurred to me to post that story here, so I am exceedingly grateful!

And re-posting made me go through it again, ironing out a few kinks, which I knew needed doing, so that felt good. Very glad you enjoyed. :)

And there's plenty more to come... the only problem is time. ::sigh::

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Big Brother" from Genuka
Review:
That's very poetic and I think Jack fits better as an older brother to. Thanks for sharing your story with us. :D
Comments from author:
Thank you. The brotherly bond will be developed further in future stories, and it works very well indeed. And your review brightened an otherwise dull morning! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Big Brother" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Every half-Time Lord/half-Human boy should have an older brother like Jack (and I absolutely love Jack's own reflections on this 'little brother' who WON'T die on him -- at least, not for a very, very, very long time).
Comments from author:

Yes indeed! :)

>and I absolutely love Jack's own reflections on this 'little brother' who WON'T die on him -- at least, not for a very, very, very long time

Yeah, he was obviously very traumatised by Gray's abduction etc. Actually there's a fair bit of co-dependency in Jack and the Seeker's relationship, both of them turning to someone they can't lose. Not that this is a bad thing, really, since they're aware of why they do it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Big Brother" from Keshkreature
Review:
I'm glad to see that the Seeker's turning out so well, despite his parentage. I love this story, and I'm really looking forward to the story of what's to come!
Comments from author:
Aw, thank you! And yes, the kid's all right, despite everything. (That's not to say that he's not in some ways very much his father's son, something you'll see evidence of that later!) Am very pleased that you enjoyed this, and thank you again. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Big Brother" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Jack Harkness has hard issues. I still remember Children of Earth, the idea of letting the poor kid croak to harsh the alien's buzz was about as hard a call as I could imagine.

I suspect he needs a brother far, far more than the Seeker does.
Comments from author:
Well yes and no, since Children of Earth didn't happen in my 'verse (which is a shame, because CoE was *incredible*) - but I started this back in 2007, and I can't shoehorn something that momentous into this story without destroying it. (I tried, believe me, and one day I might actually finish that story if I can overcome the massive amounts of angst.)

Anyway, thank you lots for reading! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Big Brother" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Very nice! Glad to see Alex has a center of compassion, regardless of everything else.
Comments from author:
Thank you! :) And I love the term 'center of compassion' because that is very much what I was aiming for. Alex (instinctively) seeks out Jack as the one person who will always be there, and who will have no ulterior motives.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from spacey
Review:
that was underhanded and so very like the Master
Comments from author:
Wasn't it just? *is pleased* Although at the same time he was absolutely genuine. Just... two birds with one stone, y'know?

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Seeking plus puberty or seeking without compassion (or empathy) may/could be a problem. However, so far so good.
Comments from author:
Got it in one - he's very much his own person, even this early (although 'seeking plus puberty' made me laugh) and will definitely cause the Doctor many headaches in future stories...

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from RevDorothyL
Review:
A boy's best friend is his very own pterodactyl! That's so cute.
Comments from author:
Isn't it just? I also thought it'd nicely illustrate how Alex's 'normal' childhood is in many ways anything but. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 6: A Christmas Carol for the Master" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I think The Master is too scary for this to be a completely fluffy piece. But it shows something that The Doctor could leave him unattended for his family visit.
Comments from author:
You're spot-on in your 'he's too scary for pure fluff' - it skirts right on the edge, 'taming' him for a few, brief moments, but that's all. The peaceful facade is just that - a facade. And re. leaving him alone, then the Doctor has turned the house 'Master-proof' as it were, so he can't escape. (The Doctor doesn't take any chances.)

And thank you for all your feedback! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from Aryll
Review:
Hehehe, oh my I love Alexander, he's adorable. I kept giggling through during the whole exchange, its nice that he'll bring a lighter touch to the darker background of the story.
Comments from author:
*beams* I am entirely too fond of my bitty Timelord, and it makes me very, very happy that people like him. (I hope he comes across as clever, but still very much a 'normal' child - he's definitely not perfect!)

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Some interesting twists here. And I can see the fudged explanation of the genius whose mind went faster than his morals as the explanation for his father. Maybe some pee-wee sports play groups would help balance the lad out?
Comments from author:
Thank you for your comment - and yes, it's interesting to have to fit a Harold Saxon who survived into 'the real world' as it were. And pee-wee sports! It's not called that over here, but he does play cricket. :)
