rec: Not So Forbidden Fruit

Greetings, all! Not sure who here is familiar with me but I am an admittedly tunnel-visioned purveyor of Nine/Rose smut. I'm also a whiner: I'm already having trouble 1) finding something awesome that hasn't already been recced, because you all are so clever you know all the good stuff already; 2) finding something awesome that hasn't already been recced that is also on Teaspoon, because most of the great little undiscovered (I think) stuff I know of is on LJ, and their authors may or may not have put them on Tsp and if they did they might have a different pen name or left out a comma in the title and now I can't find it and I don't see why people don't consider my needs before they do things.  I mean, stepping out of my obsession usual 'ship is enough of a challenge, but really, one I think will be good for me.  Maybe after that I'll even go outside. Maybe even during the day.  Whoa, I need to slow down. 

Oh look, I found one!  It's still Nine/Rose smut, but it's not on the rec list and it's a total go-to for me.  I swear other pairings will come later, but for now, you need to know about this.

Recced because:
Hmm, why do I like this so much?  It's a take on the alien aphrodisiac thing, but it just feels fresh and much more about character than the deus ex machina that brings the two together.  The interplay between the two of them as the walls break is pure them, absolutely their kind of competition and the build up is slow, sensuous and full of non-verbal communication, something the two of them could live off of. That and under-the-influence Doctor is shown to be the silly, occasional brat he would be if he weren't always trying to be dignified. ;)


"Rose? Rose?" The Doctor's voice was getting closer. "Rose?" It was directly behind her now. She turned. "Rose! Com'ere." The Doctor had worked his way through the crowded tent. Rose wasn't surprised he had some trouble finding her in this mass of people and now that he had found her, his face lit up with pride at his accomplishment. Rose couldn't help smiling at the grin on his face.

The Doctor grabbed Rose's shoulder with an exaggerated flourish. "Rose," he said seriously, "Have you tried the fruit?" Rose's attention was drawn to the Doctor's other hand then, the one that wasn't grasping her shoulder a little too tightly. He was holding up a fruit that looked like a cross between a strawberry and a blackberry. But green.

"No," said Rose, "I was too busy with the desserts."

"Try the fruit." The Doctor emphasized the importance of his instructions with several slow nods. Rose smiled while looking closely at him. His eyes were wider than she had ever seen them. He looked . . .

"Are you drunk?" she asked incredulously.

"Drunk? No. Couldn't be drunk. Haven't had anything to drink. Can't be drunk, can I?" The Doctor pulled her closer to him so that the alien berry was almost touching her lips. "Try the fruit," he repeated.

As the crowd continued to drift around them, someone nearly knocked Rose off balance and she grabbed the front of the Doctor's leather  jacket to keep herself upright. The Doctor's arm moved to her waist to steady her. She looked up at him, realizing how close they were.

"Here," the Doctor said with a grin, and he lifted the fruit back to her lips. "Try."
