rec: But Broken Lights

Story: But Broken Lights
Author: rosa_acicularis
Rating: PG
Word Count: 34162
Author's Summary: "I thought you and me were...I obviously got it wrong." Rose and the Doctor after The Age of Steel.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: Let me first say that I don't ship Ten/Rose -- but I do appreciate good fic in general. Considering how many Ten/Rose fics have been recced here, I was astonished that this wasn't one of them and it really deserves to be. For my money, rosa_acicularis writes the best Rose in the business, and this story is exceptionally well-written. It's heartbreaking and hopeful, and basically about the immense gulf that can exist between two people who understand one another perfectly but just can't seem to communicate.

Oh, and did I mention the fire-breathing manatee?
