This story has the distinction of being the first quality fic I ever read. It’s the story which got me writing fic in the first place, ‘cause I looked at it and thought; wow, that’s some good stuff. I wish I could do that.
I came back to DD when it was time to do my reccing list, worrying that, now that I’ve been exposed to lots and lots of other quality fics, this one might have lost its charm. It hasn’t. It’s funny and sad and epic in all the right places. I believe this might have been one of the first stories in the ‘Rose and the alt!Doctor in Pete’s World’ genre, and it remains one of the best. Whatever happened at the end of series four, this story, and the other stories which follow it (did I mention that this is only the first in a series?), remain my personal canon for what happened to Rose after Doomsday.
