Author's summary: So now what?
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor gen with a brief Rose appearance
This was one of the first New Who stories I read, right after Rose aired, and nearly three years later I still love it. It's a short, funny piece that's a fantastic example of that favourite pasttime of Doctor Who fanfic writers: cramming 'missing adventures' between episodes, between scenes and, in this case, in the space between the Doctor dematerialising at the end of Rose and reappearing to point out that the TARDIS travels in time. So what was he up to in those 18 seconds? Quite a lot, as it happens. Oh, and it has a 'red bicycle when you were twelve' scene of the type beloved of Doctor/Rose writers - except it was written before The Doctor Dances. Timey-wimey stuff at work, probably...
