Story: Revisions Which A Minute Will Reverse
Author: sparrowmarrow with thirty2flavors

Author's Summary: From a dingy hotel in Norway, the Doctor and Rose realise something has gone wrong. A timey-wimey interpretation of Turn Left.
Characters/Pairings: Metacrisis Tenth Doctor/Rose Tyler, Donna Noble
Warnings: None.

Recced because: By now, some of you may have figured out that I'm a fan of complicated time travel plot devices. This is another example, done spectacularly well. In a sense, this is a fix-it fic for Journey's End but it changes so little from the established events that I hesitate to call it that. For anyone who had issues with the predicament that the Doctor left Rose and his half-human duplicate to deal with, this answers some of those concerns nicely while re-visiting and reframing the events of Turn Left. Beautiful and painful.
