Author's Summary: While travelling through the alt!verse, Rose and Ten team up with the counterpart of an old friend. (Spoilers for "Journey's End," if those still count.)
Characters/Pairings: Rose/10.5, alt!Captain
Recced because: It's in Pete's World, which means that there's lots of room to play with the characters without breaking canon (such as it is).
And it's my favorite threesome in the Whoniverse. Except it's not, because the third isn't the same man.
This takes a character we know and love, and sends him in a different direction. We don't know what all the differences are, or how they came to be, but finding out is the fun part.
And although all my recs don't fall into this pattern, it's something of a theme that this is also the first story in a series. (Jed and Friends.)
