Author's summary: Rose walks into some bar on some planet and meets a girl called Fred.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler/Romana II
Word Count: ~1,300 words
Recced because: A wonderful little story, wherein Romana is disillusioned, Rose is drunk, and somehow they find a common ground. With some great lines for Romana (Sometimes, I suspect I never really knew him. Unless bohemian nutters always turn into ruthless utilitarians with a penchant for genocide), some interesting insights into what can make Rose tick underneath it all, and a very powerful ending (the "grapefruit moon" imagery has stuck with me over a long time), this really works.
