Review of chapter "Personal Space" from Keshkreature
Wow, that was beautiful and gutwrenching.
Comments from author:
The last bit of that chapter seems to really resonate well. It's one of those unsolvable character problems: the Doctor will eventually always be alone, and there's no way to write around it. Anyway, glad you liked it, and I hope you keep reading.

Review of chapter "New Buffy. That's Weird" from BlameyFomorrii
"“General Buffy,” he giggled, and she stifled it with another kiss.

“Yeah, exactly. Next thing I knew, it was six years later, and I realized that I needed my Doctor. So I sent my Earth-Mother-Witch-Goddess best friend to go find him for me. What else are friends for?”"

---It's funny, but I can actually envision the Doctor giggling.

I can't believe they thought Buffy made up the Doctor! Buffy is not insane, those hypocites!

"“Dawn, it’s good to see you this close to the ground! This is, well, I told you about him.”

Dawn looked him up and down. “He doesn’t look like a Time Lord to me.”

“What exactly is it that everyone thinks a Time Lord looks like? You all say it, and honest, I’m pretty run of the mill from Gallifrey.”

“I dunno. Just not like a skinny little British guy.” "

---*snort* Oh my God! I love the way you write the Doctor! I can imagine everything you say, because it's all so in character!
"“So, work out?”

Xander slumped over the table. “I am a living bruise.”

The Doctor smiled. “See Buffy, it’s just like our first work outs together.” He took a bite of banana. “Isn’t that cute?”"

---Adorable! Poor Xander. You even have a bananna in there!
Comments from author:
Well, she had initially said she'd been in heaven. Later on she let it slip, to Spike first and from there to Willow, Dawn, and the rest exactly where she'd gone. And the Doctor sounds just a little too perfect, so they figured he was just a way of remembering heavenly sensations that she couldn't express.

Now he's here, and well, there's no denying him. I can't wait to get back to it, and I hope you enjoy the rest of it.

(P.S. I like giddy, giggly Doctor. We'll see how much I get to write him in this, but I do like it)

Review of chapter "Personal Space" from Bluejello
Doctor in Buffy-verse, yay!
And thanks for discussing the Time-Tots issue, I was wondering if you'd bring that up.
Comments from author:
It was bugging me. And apparently bugging Buffy too.

The "baby" thing always feels like such a cliche to write. I think the only ever "child of the pairing" fic I ever liked was Reichenbach's "Doors" series over on (incredibly well-plotted DW fics, well worth reading). It's always feels like I'm in fifth grade and doodling Mrs. David Tennant on a notebook or something. But I'd written these guys as staying together for more than half a century, and it was unrealistic that the subject had never been brought up.

Spike of course now has a big problem. On one hand, he's not terribly fond of the Doctor. On the other hand, the idea of there being no more Summers women really bugs him. We'll see how it plays out, if this semester ever ends.

Review of chapter "Personal Space" from heathenseyes
I love your continuation, but I am dying for a new chapter.
Comments from author:
Thanks. It's coming, but unfortunately it is finals season and will probably not be out until very near the new year, either just before or just after. Keep bugging me, you'll get it. =)

Review of chapter "New Buffy. That's Weird" from littlenut
It's a good start. I don't mean to sound lukewarm, I've just learned to save major praise or criticism for the end of the story. Just waiting to see what develops...

Review of chapter "Personal Space" from Booster
Dammit - stop putting water in my eyes!
Comments from author:
Sorry about that. Buffy just needed to get it off of her chest. She feels a bit better now.

Review of chapter "Personal Space" from KnightOwl
I love this story! I'm so happy you decided to write a sequel. I also very happy that the Doctor is with Buffy. The last part of the story she told Spike about kids made me cry, it was so beautiful. I can't wait to read more of this. I hate that eventually she will die and leave him but I like that they are together until then.
Comments from author:
Yeah, there's no getting around that melancholy death bit. But I'll give 'em a good run, and they've got a fair number of challenges ahead yet.

Review of chapter "Personal Space" from kimbclar
I'm so glad you chose to continue this story. I also love the bit with Spike. The last bit about the children made me all teary-eyed.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Spike and the Doctor are going to keep getting on each others nerves I think.

I was nervous about the last bit: it sort of stands out stylistically from the rest of the story. But I needed something to help explain a lot of the character changes that Buffy and the Doctor have taken since they got together. Otherwise, I'm gonna get bit for having the Doctor so frisky. Plus, I wanted to know the answer to Spike's question, and this was the only format where Buffy was willing to tell me about it.

Thanks for the feedback!
