Hello again everyone!
Today's rec is brought to you by fairy-tales; because there is nothing like a good reunion fic without Princesses, Wolf Grannies, Doctors fighting Dragons; and of course... Cybermen?
This is a 10.5/Rose fic that deals with the immediate aftermath of Journey's End, but in a unique way.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen. This resolution story actually has... PLOT!
This is, hands down, my favorite 10.5/Rose story. It presents the problems that Rose and Handy have, (we all know there are a lot of them) but it carries on with the two of them doing what they do best - having adventures.
I find that with a lot of 10.5/Rose stories, it main issue is always over their relationship. Where do they stand now, is he really the Doctor, can Rose really love him, yadda yadda yadda. Don't get me wrong, this is all well and good, but Rose and the Doctor have adventure and travel in their blood. They could no more sacrifice that than they could sacrifice each other.
And The Doctor fights a Dragon. Does it get better than that? I think not.
The adventure here is marvelous! It's just so... canon! There is no other way to describe it. It feels just like one of the specials.
For those of you that want fluff, this story has it. But, for those of you who want the adventure, the Doctor being Doctorish, and Rose being - well, Rose, read this.
You won't be disappointed.
