Author: Kate Andrews
Rating: I think it used to be "R," because it doesn't have one now. Adult, to be on the safe side?

Author's Summary: Saying it like that felt so much better than saying 'pushed her guts back inside.'
Characters/Pairings: Ten and Rose -- does a bit of tension make it Ten/Rose?
Warnings: Medical squickiness.
Recced because: This is an odd little fic, rated the way it is not for sex or overt violence but because... well, to quote the story, "Three days ago, with her very own gut, [Rose] learned what it felt like when the Doctor repaired your serous membrane and restored the integrity of your peritoneal cavity." They manage to banter about it afterward, almost. I like the shifting balance of funny and serious, the awkwardness of the not-quite-spelled-out emotions, and the (mostly) sweet ending that doesn't quite go where you think it might.
