Comments from author:
Don't tell me things like that: as a parent I'm supposed to love all my kids equally. ;^) But I'm glad you liked the chapter. Thanks for the review, chica.

Review of chapter "It's Hard to Remember to Live Before You Die" from (Past Donor)Catlimere
Review:
I just made my husband jump with my very enthusiastic "Squee" of joy! First off, yay for the update, second - wow! just wow!

How marvelous to have the Doctor coming back to himself mid-kiss, great job with the return of his consciousness. I also loved that he didn't just end the physical contact, that he reassured Buffy by touch and by word. How marvelous the connection you made between her kiss with Angel and her kiss with John. I didn't immediately think of that but it resonates so perfectly. I love that he could reassure her that she didn't betray anyone and that John was still part of him.

Wow! again with the wow, I know...but I enjoyed so much about this chapter, this story...

Nice that he was looking out for Buffy, trying to get her to rest and the wish for her to stay safe. I like that while he caught bits of Buffy's last thoughts before separating, she caught some of his last thoughts as well and put together what he was planning. Nice moment between Buffy and Martha, good for Martha to know how much she is trusted. Gives her a better sense of how valuable she is in and of herself, not as a companion to the Doctor. Also glad Buffy was able to get to the Doctor and stop him and was able to devise a good punishment. Merciful but still punishment.

Such a great way to end the chapter...the squeezing of each other's hands...

Marvelous!
Comments from author:
I appreciate every one of your observations, specifically because it took me forever to figure out this chapter. I really owe it to Booster on this one, he gave me candid, sage advice that made the chapter so much stronger at every step.

The relationship between Buffy and the Doctor is a very different one than the one that was between Buffy and John. We'll see how it develops. These two know each other now, as in, they've both seen each other's thoughts and memories and deepest selves. A factoid that didn't make the cut into this version of the chapter is that Buffy knows the Doctor's name now (see "Forest of the Dead" for the import of that), and the Doctor's seen her entire life. He'll retain more (because he can, and there's fewer Buffy-memories to retain), but Buffy knows the Doctor better than anyone else now. She's not in the position Donna was in, but, like it said in the chapter, she's not sure how many bits of the Doctor are still hiding around in her head. She's changed. And when she tells Martha she knows how capable she is, she says it with both her own memories and the Doctor's.

And yeah, I liked the hand squeeze too. I may have watched Wall-E a few too many times this break. =) Thanks for reviewing, I'm glad I made you squee.

Yay, more story! Love the way you handled the situation with Buffy in the midst of it. Can't wait for the continuation.

Next bit shouldn't take so long... but it's either penultimate bit or final bit. Glad you liked this chapter, it went through about eight permutations before Booster saw it, then it only worked because he gave me a piece of sage advice, then it doubled in length after his first beta, and it was just a pain in the tuckus! Thanks for reviewing, and for the idea, other than this one chapter, it's been a joy for me.

That part was so good! I'm so happy that they actually told each other they loved each other before opening the watch. And I'm glad that John didn't hate her. I'm dying to find out what happens next!

Review of chapter "The Dark Center of the Universe" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
Review:
Wow! Quite the exciting chapter. Poor John Smith.
Those episodes made you feel bad for the poor bloke, but then again, he was never meant to be anyway...

Great chapter by the way. I look forward to how you end this; but I wonder, will there be any dregs of the budding romance between Buffy and John Smith lingering for Buffy and the Doctor?

Review of chapter "The Dark Center of the Universe" from MissJulie
Review:
Buffy flying the TARDIS? Everyone duck!

You painted John Smith in a much better light than the show did. From here on, I shall only acknowledge your John Smith as canon.
Comments from author:
She's got the Doctor whispering instructions into her pre-frontal cortex at least. And awwws... I'm touched. Like I said, it's easier to sacrifice yourself for someone you know you love than a bunch of strangers. But yeah, he wound up doing a lot less whinging. I like him better this way too. Now I've got to figure out how Buffy will deal with the Doctor in the aftermath, and vice-versa. Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "The Dark Center of the Universe" from AllenPitt
Review:
And then the Doctor jumps back saying "Eww! Cooties!" ... Just kidding.
He should be quite intrigued by Buffy. I could see him deciding to visit her dimension, if possible. Might even have some theories on what the Key is. It could easily be connected to Gallifrey somehow. (though I loved the theory in wikipedia that Dawn is Yog Sothoth) ---
Comments from author:
Whoa, getting ahead of me there buddy. As it is, I'm writing a one-off with the potential for eventual expansion. And I liked that theory too (I mean, Dagon Sphere? Are we serious?) Thanks for the review.
