The 4 of them went to refuel the TARDIS, but only 2 of them returned. Rose and the Doctor try to move forward without the nearly crippling fear of letting each other go. But what about Martha and Jack?
Chapter Two: Avoidances—there are many ways to avoid things and conversations and people, even when you’re standing right next to them. (Slight talk of pregnancy and non-miscarriages between Martha and the Doctor but I promise you, Rose didn’t have a miscarriage)
Thanks Kelkat9 for looking this over and offering her opinion on the plot!
The Doctor read through the notes and journal entries Martha had kept during their forced exile. He tracked Rose’s progress during those 45 days in Martha’s handwriting and vowed never to leave Rose long enough that someone else needed to take care of her.
Pairing: Nine x Rose
Rating: Mild adult in places, but not explicit.
Summary: For one brief shining moment, they had the clarity of 20/20 foresight and the means to do something about it, so together they made a choice.
You can catch up on AO3.
Seeing as I still haven’t finished my novel I am thinking I might enter nanowrimo to see if I can finish it that way. Although my novel is already 59k
You should! It really does help you get the story out. It doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, you are not supposed to edit during NaNo. I’m registered as Kelkat9 :)
I completely revamped Chapt 17 and added tons more dialog and am much happier with it even if it made for a much longer chapter. I needed them to talk, connect more and layer in more UST.
I went with a statute of Psyche/Eros. That myth had some nice parallels with my story. I confess it is a very evil scene and if I was a reader at that part, I would probably be smashing the book down LOL but I’d also want to see what happens next ;) It takes them to the cusp and then yanks it away.
I feel a little sorry for controlling seducer Alpha. Pets him.
You know, honestly the story of Hades and Persphone is happy.
It is depending on the version…I like the nice version where he woos her more than the errr more aggressive Hades version. It was seriously between this and Psyche and Cupid.

you didn’t specify a pairing and since no one sent me an eleven/rose prompt i’m doing eleven/rose here.
"Doctor, please listen to me!" Rose was pleading with the alien, begging him to hear her. "You need to stop this, the universe needs you! You can’t just sit here!"
The Doctor made no indication that he heard her, simply straightening his bowtie, adjusting his spectacles, and returning to his book.
"I know losin’ the Ponds hurt, I know you finally let yourself believe that you could have a family again and now they’re gone but you have to keep going. You have to.”
She hated this. She hated seeing him shut down like this and not being able to help him.There had to be something. She couldn’t have been relegated to being the TARDIS ghost for nothing.
She didn’t know how she’d ended up here, figured it had something to do with her merging with the TARDIS as the Bad Wolf. After a full life in Pete’s World with her Doctor, she’d passed on only to wake up in the TARDIS looking like she was twenty again. It made no sense and it seemed pointless for her to be here while he self-destructed when he couldn’t even see her, much less hear her pleas for him to be the Doctor again.
Heaving a sigh she wandered out of the console room to go see if she could find anything to spur him into action once more.
She’d resigned herself to a solitary existence here but she couldn’t take much more of the Doctor’s indifference towards the universe.
The Doctor rubbed his eyes as she walked out of the room. As time went on it was getting more and more difficult to pretend he couldn’t see her, couldn’t hear her pleading with him. But she wasn’t real, she couldn’t be. She wasn’t corporeal and no one else seemed to be able to see her.
He wasn’t sure he was quite sane this time around.
Talking to her, pretending she was real, would just hurt his already damaged hearts and he couldn’t take it.
