Story: Sometime Around Midnight
Word Count: 2818
Author's Summary: It took two months. Two months of takeaway curries and crap television, of rumpled sheets and that spot on her neck that always makes her squirm. Two months of talking about Mickey's new girlfriend and Jackie's new tracksuit and decidedly not what a new, new, new Doctor meant to a new Rose.
Characters/Pairings: Rose/Ten Two
Recced because: Despite all the grief and aggravation Rose and the Tenth Doctor (and their fans) have given me over the years, I still have a soft spot for stories about Rose and Handy trying to figure themselves out in Pete’s World. Here, they’ve been there for a while and not everything has worked out for the two of them. This Handy is achingly human and lost, and this story hurts, even through the happy ending.
