ten: burning a sun

ours is not a love song (your heart is not the beat) by biggrstaffbunch (PG)

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Rose Tyler/The Doctor
Fic Title: ours is not a love song (your heart is not the beat)
Author: biggrstaffbunch
Link: http://biggrstaffbunch.livejournal.com/67389.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG / spoilers for Doomsday
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Reunion!fic (post Doomsday or otherwise) is so prevalent in this ship but this piece stands out from the rest by not going the usual sunshine and rainbows route and showing that after everything that has happened to them both a relationship between the Doctor and Rose was never going to be easy, but is so very worth it in the end.

You are not a human, but you have human flaws. You get too angry, you get too sad. You spend far too long worrying over the state of your dress. And you fall in love. Wondrous, reckless, terrible love, the kind that proper lords (Time or otherwise) would never deign to recognize, let alone obey.
