I liked it. I don't really see a lot of stories that focus on this one, crucial moment in the Doctor's life.


Reminds me of Doomsday.

Good job.

I'm sorry, I just don't feel for this the same way as Donna, Susan, or Martha. The trouble is, there's no real development. We know a companion will leave, and we dread it when we get attached to her, or him. My point is, if you want people to feel sad, write more to it. Don't just start at the end. Start at the very beginning. A very good place to start. When you read, you begin with, A B C. When you write a Doctor Who fanfic, you begin with Doctor Meets Companion. The very first step just happens to be, Doctor Meets Companion. Doctor meets companions, fights evil, and says goodbye!
Goddammit, I love that song. If you don't get it, then what is wrong with you? Watch Sound of Music this instant!

Unless you wrote another story before this. In that case, forget that comment above.

Thank you all for the feedback so far, and the likes and favorites. This is the first story I've written since high school English class (and that was over 10 years ago), but the idea had been running through my head since the Ponds' farewell in the latest series of Doctor Who and also from reading The Hourglass Always Stays by Elusive Phoenix. Reading that first scene made me realize that there aren't many, if any, stories about Doctor Whooves leaving his companions and the effect it must have on them.

Anyways, this is only the first of many ideas I have.


There are many better Doctor Who fics out there than what I could do justice for, so I just wanted a little scene that I don't see very often. If you haven't read it yet, I would suggest A Storm of Chaos by Shotoman. I basically used his characterizations of Derpy and the Doctor for this story.

Nice idea. I wonder if the BBC have ever thought of having a 'former companions club' of some sort. It wouldn't be the same without Sarah Jane though...

Right in the saddy waddy detector of my brain:heart::applecry::fluttercry::pinkiesad2::raritycry:

I haven't read any other stories with Doctor Whooves in them... But I want to now! I'll probably come to appreciate this after a couple of stories... :twilightsheepish:

I always loved the Derpy Doctor fics. However, I think that I am going to stick to my own personal head canon.

this somehow just reminded me of the last scene of the doctor's death in Sarah Jane adventures when she talks about the old companions like ian and Barbara


Holy cow. That is an amazing picture. I must find the source so I can replace that crappy picture I drew.

I wish I could like and fav this story a hundred times.

Very good. :twilightsmile:

My gosh, you are a wonderful writer and how you captured feelings in this piece is.... just Wow.:twilightsmile:

I loved the story just one thing bugged me. You used quiet instead of quite
Edit: I said hug instead of bug, damn auto correct


Fixed. Thank you for spotting that.

i wonder if the doctor in our universe is ever going to see susan again.
