Review of chapter "Spares" from BlueEyedBrigadier
Review:
As much as the last couple of reviewers of this story took a different view of what you had Xander tell Ianto and Martha than what the intent was - though the Matt Smith/11th Doctor episodes definitely have gone into detail with exploring the Doctor's influence on various sentients' and their choice to fight against Evil and his own metamorphosis into something more akin to a general than a healer and problem solver - I was truly floored by how beautiful Xander's speech to Ianto and Martha was, how it gave them a slap in the face about their supposed lot in life but in a way where their feelings were not trivialized but recognized and given their place beside their growing realization that they themselves are wholly important to The Doctor and Captain Jack in the way they keep them on keel.

It would be brilliant to see more in this storyline but your muse has to do what your muse has to do when it comes to engineering ideas :D

Review:
Yes, I am going to say something else. Yes, they never said that, but the whole point is to claim that they did in order to prove Xander's superiority. And since they're very different, that's not fair. I was going to edit the last one and say that but you got there first. I read crossover fanfiction because it's special because fanfiction is the only place where certain crossovers ever happen. The reason I mentioned Season Eight, which I wish I hadn't now, was because it's one of the few Buffy crossovers that can be said to have really happened. Season Eight also shows Hellboy in one issue. So fanfiction's immaterial but I still can't help looking at this section and seeing stuff like this gets to me. The only reason anyone does it is because the current Doctor Who series began after Buffy ended. In the past I've lost my accounts and had to change them, so you haven't seen all the ones I've done. And some have been positive. Why are reviews even allowed here if it gets nasty?

Review:
Whining? Forget it. The Doctor was really seen in BTVS Season Eight anyway. So this crossover has happened for real.

You're still whining. I checked your profile and you seem to be in the habit of reviewing stories to do nothing but complain about them. You're a troll, and now I'm bored. Instead of bitching about everyone else's work, why not try writing your own, as you apparently believe only you understand what constitutes good story? I don't follow the comics and don't consider them canon. I didn't know the Doctor was in them and could care less. This is FANFICTION. It is not canon. Learn the difference, because you're just proclaiming yourself a petulant dilettante.

You're far too invested in this minutiae, and this is the last response I'll waste time composing. Despite this, I'm still you'll formulate some pathetic reply in order to claim you got the last word.

Review of chapter "Spares" from markw
Review:
Being a companion in Doctor Who or a member of Torchwood is not the same as being the sidekick of an action hero. Martha and Ianto never said any such thing, and they eventually left without a speech from a character from another television series, as you well know.
Oh, insult me if you want. I've watched Doctor Who since 1981. Why are reviews even allowed if it leads to this?
Comments from author:
You're ridiculous. Of course Martha and Ianto never said any such thing. This is fanfiction, not canon.

I don't care how long you've watched Doctor Who. What does that have to do with anything? You can say whatever you wish in your review, just as I can reply in whatever manner I desire. Stop whining and go find something to read that is more to your taste.

Review of chapter "Spares" from naplam
Review:
Wrong. The Doctor didn't leave Gallifrey to fight evil, but to explore. People join him to travel with him, not to be soldiers.
Comments from author:
If that's all you got from the story, then you're wrong.

Review of chapter "Spares" from nightowl
Review:
Awesome. Now all we need is a sequal showing the "leader's" reaction to the speech they just overheard and maybe some more about how it affected Ionto and Martha. Great job. It was very moving.
Comments from author:
LOL! I've actually thought about writing a companion piece from the leaders' point of view, but am not sure when (or if) I'd get around to it. I am considering it, though. Thanks so much for checking this out and leaving such an awesome comment. Much appreciated!
