Author's summary: A story about bad coffee, a green librarian, and a thing that doesn't shoot acid at people.
Characters: Rose Tyler, Mickey Smith, Jake Simmonds, Jackie Tyler, Pete Tyler, (alt!)Sarah Jane Smith
Recced because: This is an absolutely lovely story about Rose post-Doomsday, and the new universe she's living in. With a great structure around ecosystems - or habitats - we get a Rose who is studying for an A-level, has made friends with the altverse!Sarah Jane, investigates alien toasters that might be weapons with Mickey and Jake, and generally is living her life, the way the Doctor would want her to. There's some very funny bits, some very thoughtful and touching bits, some melancholy bits (because this Rose is real, with all the human emotions that go with that), and a strong, hopeful ending. I just love Rose in this story, so very much.
