Pairing: Rose Tyler/The Doctor
Fic Title: Five and a Half Hours
Genre: Retelling, AU, romance, friendship, angst.
Why This Must Be Read: Anyone else wish we'd gotten a bit more time with 9? This is a fairly interesting and original idea on how Rose (and later, the Doctor) spectacularly fuck up their own timelines because they've got the collective emotional IQ of an amoeba. No, amoeba's are likely pretty self-aware. Okay, of Sigmund Freud. I like this story quite a bit because it doesn't sugar coat Rose or the Doctor's OR the TARDIS' flaws, but rather leaves them out there and forges a new path on its own. (I totally need to do an AU-9 rec post some day.)
