Comment on A Time For Every Purpose

    OH MAN

    At first, I was unsure about Narvin/Romana! I can see the appeal, but as much as I like Romana and as much as I like Narvin, I couldn't really see it. But this fic, I mean, this fic. I was waiting to read it, because it is long, but it was totally totally worth it.

    Favorite quotes, because you are amazing:

    "You're a morning person," she accuses, meaning it to sting.

    "I've tried to keep it from you," he replies, straight-faced, "but I simply couldn't go on living a lie."

    They are so in-character and so perfect.

    "I implied I think you do your job well now," she points out, and then ruins it by continuing, "which is an extremely generous assessment. Do you want me to hold your hand, or do you want me to plot us a way out of this? Now stop talking, I'm trying to think."

    He does stop talking, and stares quietly at her. "What is it now?" she snaps, when his gaze doesn't drift away.

    "I'm fairly certain you've ruined me for other Time Ladies," he comments, in an offhand sort of way.

    I am flailing now, ahhhh. So great.

    IN SUMMARY, you are amazing, and while I have a sneaking suspicion that I know who you are, well. If I don't, I look forward to finding out.

    1. Squee! I was so hoping I would manage to turn someone around on Romana/Narvin--I wasn't at all certain about them myself when I started writing this series, but the more I thought about it the more I fell in love with the pairing, and I'm thrilled to hear that you liked it too in spite of your initial reservations. You're so sweet, thank you very much!

      I have a sneaking suspicion that you did indeed know who I was :) I probably should have, well, not squee'd so much about novella-writing, but I really couldn't help myself...
