REC: We Could Go On Loving In The Same Old Way

Last one! And I suspect I'm cheating a little bit, reccing three by the same author, but I have to confess I love this author so much that when time came to choose I couldn't find any others to recommend over them. This one, however, is at least quite different in tone to the last two...

We Could Go On Loving In The Same Old Way
Author: JJPOR
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1161
Author's Summary: He would do anything for her… post-Doomsday AU “fix it” fic.
Characters/Pairings: Ten / Rose
Warnings: None listed, but it's a bit dark. Also, spoilers in tone if not in content for recent episodes.

Recced because:
I'm leaving as I came in; dark...

I'll be honest; although I've really enjoyed the new series, some of the decisions made throughout it haven't really thrilled me; I'm not really much of a 'shipper and I've found the Tenth Doctor at times really difficult to like. Which is why I like it when the fic -- and the writers of the show proper -- actually acknowledge this. This fic claims to be a post-"Doomsday" AU, but as the author acknowledges it's actually more of a post "The Waters Of Mars" fic; it doesn't actually spoil anything from that episode, and I won't spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen it, but it essentially depicts a Doctor has decided to reverse old wrongs in his life... and why he really, really, really shouldn't. It's dark, bleak and confronting, and subverts all the "Doomsday" 'fix-it' fics which seek to bring Rose and Ten back together by taking it to an extreme that shows why this might not be such a good idea after all.

*** Anyway, that's all from me; as I (belatedly) pass on to my successor, I hope you've enjoyed the fics I've offered to you (even though I did sort of squeeze several of them in at the last minute!), and I hope you all have a happy holiday period!
