Rec: Common Ground, by thirty2flavors

Story: Common Ground
Author: _thirty2flavors
Rating: All ages.
Word Count: 1,965
Author's Summary: Rose Tyler, Martha Jones and Donna Noble have one thing in common.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Martha Jones, Rose Tyler
Warnings:None

Recced because: I always adore thirty3flavors's writing, and I especially love her characterisation. Common Ground shows us how such different companions can all end up in the same place.

A snippet:

Do you want to come with me?

It comes about differently, each time. With Rose he has to ask twice, because it’s not until that second time that she’s selfish enough to say yes. Martha has to work for it; she saves his life and fights his battles and stares down witches and Daleks and the Doctor himself before she gets her invite. Donna says no and then changes her mind a minute too late, so she has to she invite herself along, hatboxes and all.

It comes about differently, but it’s the same offer each time.
