Rec: "A Promise of Forever"

Story: A Promise of Forever
Author: bluedawn
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 9206
Author's Summary: A mysterious blonde girl keeps showing up in each of the Doctor's lives, only staying long enough each time to save his life and slowly steal his hearts. By the time he figures out who she is, is it too late for their promise of forever?
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor/Rose; 1st Doctor, 2nd Doctor, 3rd Doctor, 4th Doctor, 5th Doctor, 6th Doctor, 7th Doctor, 8th Doctor, 9th Doctor, 10th Doctor, Rose Tyler, Donna Noble, Ian Chesterton, Sarah Jane Smith, Donna Noble, Barbara, Susan,
Warnings: Explicit Violence, Swearing, Non-Con (The final warning is tagged on Teaspoon, but I have yet to figure out why).

Recced because: Bluedawn's muti-era Doctor/Rose love stories are simply brilliant. The idea that the Doctor might have loved Rose throughout all of his lives is particularly appealing to me, and she captures just how bittersweet it might be to have them cross paths long before he's supposed to know her. Plus, every one of Doctor voices are unique and spot on, and Rose's interactions with each of them is priceless. Also, t's a very unusual post-Doomsday Ten/Rose reunion story.

[Excerpt]




“I ask again...who are you? What is your name? Why do you keep showing up in my life, my lives?” he asks, knowing that he probably will not receive an answer for his troubles. At least she spoke to him this time.


She merely shakes her head at him as she did in his second life and the sad smile returns.

“Can’t you stop it? Can’t you get out?” he asks, desperately hoping for both him and her that she can.

Although, it’s nice to have a defender, a sort of guardian angel, on Earth. Not that he needs her help. Of course not. But then again...

“Who says I want out?” she asks, steel replacing the sadness in her voice. “I made my choice, Doctor.” There is something in her voice when she says his name. Something that makes him nervous and excited at the same time. The air grows heavy and he has received no answers from the mysterious human. She will be gone in a second.


“What choice? When? Who are you?” He shouts a litany of questions at her, hoping she’ll answer even one.







As always, be sure to let the author know if you enjoy it!
