1st August 2012:
For being a weird fic, I certainly enjoyed it! The part where he figures out she was from Cardiff was perfect!

I've never actually /seen/ an episode of Torchwood yet but because of this, I plan on starting very soon. Besides, WWCJD? Perfect line. Ever. "Captain" Jack Harkness is amazing. Besides, anything that is an anagram of Doctor Who has to be good, right? RIGHT? I love Doctor Who if you didn't know, and judging by the Percy story, I think you do know.

Ahem. back to story. I liked it because it was funny and because BBC and overall, it was great.
I lol'd.

Author's Response: Thank you! It defiantly is a "weird fic" (seriously, I think that I was on a sugar high when I wrote this haha)


BBC: BECAUSE BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH (just thought I should share this!)

Congrats on winning the nerd's challenge!!!

This was brilliant! I don't know Torchwood, I admit it. But I enjoyed this a lot. I absolutly loved Marcus, he was a lot of fun to read about and such a subtle guy...

I noticed a couple spelling errors and typos. I won't point them all out but here are a couple :

"Quaffels"; should be spelled 'quaffle'

"Marcus excused him from class."; shouldn't it be 'excused himself' ?

"and nothing could distract him from not."; the end of this sentence is strange, I think you put in the wrong word

"Being a closet nerd is hell fun"; that sounds strange to me, like words are missing

Overall, it was a really great story. I laughed so much and had a great time reading through. Just do a quick read through to fix the small errors and it will be even better! Great work!

Author's Response: Even though I came third... Thank you!

Haha, Torchwood is amazing! It's so funny and John Barrowman makes it so good! *swoons* haha

Yeah, I wrote this in like an afternoon so I expected some spelling mistakes. I think I'll go through and edit it one day :P Thank you for pointing them out.

Thank you! :D

HAHAHAHA! FAVORITE LINE! I ask myself that all the time.
Er.I! I've never seen this show before so I didn't understand the references, you know? But that didn't matter because this was HYSTERICAL! I appreciate some good humor. You really captured Flint and his ah...I want to say...lack of brains (to put it nicely). I imagine he was a fun character to write.

Author's Response: Haha, it's my life motto! Not really, but anyway.. haha. TORCHWOOD IS AMAZING! YOU NEED TO WATCH IT! IF NOT FOR THE PLOT THEN FOR JOHN BARROWMAN! Haha, thank you! I've never written humor before so I tried and it kind of turned into a crack!fic haha.

YES! It was such a fun story to write and Marcus alone was the best character I've ever written. I want to make all of my characters like it! Not really, but it would be funny to read!

Hi there, tagging from the review thread.

I'll admit that I haven't ever watched Torchwood (though I do love Alexa Havins), I still found the humor in this story. In particular, I think you captured Flint's...well...dumbness via your writing. Even though you didn't write it in first person, it felt as if these were things that Marcus would say to himself.

Even his approach screamed stupidity as he formulated theory after theory with no logical pattern. Oh, it must be so painful to be as dumb as he. Still, it was amusing and probably even more so had I ever watched Torchwood, but I wanted to read this because I'm submitting a story to the nerd challenge too!

There were little things that bothered me and usually, with me, they're story-related but this had to do with grammar and style.

There were a bunch of misspells (wether, firewhisky, and some other sentences that looked like they were missing words or typo'd to the wrong word) and it's tough to read sometimes when you insert dialogue and Flint's thoughts within a big paragraph. I would have liked if you broke up the dialogue or thoughts from the paragraph so they were easier to read and it wasn't so difficult to follow who exactly said what.

I did like the theme of the retcon and I really just missed the anvil-sized hints of what Gwen was going to do with him. Of course she was going to slip him the retcon in the end!

Fun story that could use a bit of stylistic changes.

Author's Response: You should so watch Torchwood! And Doctor Who! And The Sarah Jane Adventures! (okay, i'll stop now).

Really? Well, that's good, because this is the first time I've ever written a humor-related story before so I'm glad that you saw the humor. Haha, I loved writing Marcus because I kind of based his fangirling off my experiences (there are two guys at my school: one of them looks like Jared Padlecki and the other looks like Andrew-Lee Potts)

Well, thanks for pointing that out! I'll fix them (one day) THank you!

I love Torchwood too and I have no idea where this story came from haha, I was in a really weird mood when I wrote this haha.
Thank you again!

WWCJD? (What would Captain Jack do?).

Alright, this was outrageously funny, I kept laughing because Marcus's fangirling over the fact that Gwen Cooper was in Hogwarts was hysterical! Great job! :)

Author's Response: It's now offically my motto in life (even though I invented it haha)
Thank you! I pretty much just transfered my fangirling into Marcus' body; it was really fun!
