Author's Summary: The Dimension Cannon has sent Rose to a time traveler, but it isn't the one she was hoping for.
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Rose, Mickey
Recced because: How did Rose get that dimension cannon working, anyway? Maybe all she needed was help from a fellow time traveler. An older and more world-weary Ace plays the Doctor's role here, not just by helping Rose with the cannon, but also by inspiring her to keep hope alive that she'll find the Doctor and save the universe. This is a short piece, but the character voices are pitch-perfect, and it's easy to think of this as a missing scene from canon.
