Author: rosa_acicularis

Author's Summary: Rose always did have a thing for dangerous older men. A Pete's World crack!fic.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, Mickey Smith, Jake Simmonds, the Tenth Doctor, the Duplicate Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love a good crack!fic, and this one is especially noteworthy because its humor isn't silly, it's deadpan -- a trick that I didn't realize could even be pulled off in a fic, let alone pulled off as well as it is done here. Rose Tyler becomes a vampire between "Doomsday" and "Journey's End," and if that's not cracky enough for you, plenty of vampire tropes get skewered here, too. (Did I mention that I also love fics that skewer tropes?)

One evening Rose woke up and found a white cardboard box waiting on the autopsy table. Inside was a blue jacket, and a note. It said:

Don’t wear black. It makes you look like a corpse.

It was in her mother’s handwriting.
