Rec: Try to Remember by Dettiot

Story:  Try to Remember
Author: dettiot
Rating:  All Ages
Word Count: 4,107
Author's Summary:  Autumns across time and space. Post-Fear Her; references to Army of Ghosts and Doomsday.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose
Warnings: None.  Well, maybe a tissue warning if you're sensitive. 

Recced because:  This story makes gorgeous use of setting and imagery to evoke a mood.  It's a relationship study of the Doctor and Rose at a time when they're growing closer and reveling in each other's company but both feeling apprehension of the coming storm.  Cute and sweet yet deeply melancholy, this story is like an autumn celebration where you feast against the coming cold.

They walked hand-in-hand through a forest of trees with bright yellow leaves, on a planet where autumn lasted for a year. His coat was buttoned; she wore a long scarf with a fringe that fluttered in the breeze. The sun shone brightly, but the chill in the air made her walk closer to him. He almost pointed out that since his body temperature was lower than hers he'd only make her colder, but he didn't.

He swung their joined hands and scuffed his feet through the leaves that littered the path. Ending up on Meridian during the planet's autumn hadn't been what he was aiming for, but now that they were there . . . it was perfect. Just what they needed.
