Author’s Summary: Once upon a time, she had abided in the world where lives did not begin with ‘once upon a time.’ No more. Rose walks through the woods. Meanwhile, the Doctor deals with an abundance of Bad Wolf references.
Characters/Pairing: Ten/Rose, Jack Harkness
Recced because: Expanding on the theme of the Bad Wolf, TARDIS_stowaway brings us deceptively simple, lyrical prose that explores a multitude of fairy tale themes. Not the Disney versions of fairy tales, mind. This hearkens back to the old stories told around the fireside, where even small actions by the hero(ine) can cause a ripple of effects, and darkness breathes down your neck, lurking just out of sight.
As Rose crosses the void, she finds herself walking a strange path. Mysterious beings, old friends, and crossed timelines are all part of the journey. Meanwhile, the universe is trying to get a message to the Doctor. Unfortunately, he's not willing to listen.
Give this involving story a few minutes to draw you in. You won't be disappointed.
