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!
