The last meme clearly didn't teach me a lesson about think-y memes.

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any or all of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, and possibly a short excerpt as well.

The worldbuilding in this is absolutely fantastic. Every setting was so clear in my mind, with unique characteristics and fascinating cultures. By the end of the story, I was all set to pack my bags and move into this world.

Oh, it definitely did not have the travelogue feel! I was wondering why we never got to see that one scene in the deep TARDIS - I thought it could have been very interesting to hear this conversation between the Doctor and Jack exactly because it would be fascinating to watch the Doctor use up places to run to until he has to finally have his talk with Jack. All the same, you did an amazing job of covering that up and making it seem as though you'd always intended to skip the scene.

Oh, and you can never, ever, EVER go wrong with banana puns. Never. ;)

I don't know how I never managed to give you feedback on 'Cry for Quarter', but I thought you did an amazing job with the battle scenes and the whole aspect of the fighting taking place on two levels, with Arthur locked in very real physical combat and Merriman handling the supernatural aspect. It's always good to see Dark Is Rising fic that can show how the mortal and magical worlds rub up against each other too closely for comfort at times. ^_^

Every Inch of Sky We Seek was utterly gorgeous - you could feel Amy's impatience seeping through every minute of her entrapment on the world, and how she channeled it into usefulness. Lovely.
