I guess this is a bit unfair, I am very sorry. But when I finished the sketch, I just really wanted to colour it too. I’ve been kind of depressed lately, and what’s better to cheer you up a bit than your OTP being all cute and hugging. So I cleaned it all…

Characters/Pairings: Ten II/Rose
Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: Rose kept her shoulders squared, her chin high, and her face cold. “You don’t know anything about me.”
“Don’t I?” His eyes narrowed in scrutiny as he turned his attention to Rose. “I’ve met so many like you. Sad little humans with small little lives, trailing around after him, feeling oh-so-special because he chose you.”

The Doctor clung tightly to Rose’s hand as they weaved their way through Torchwood, making their way down to the basement level. The basement housed all of Torchwood’s most advanced weapons, as well as any artefacts considered too dangerous to fall into the wrong hands. It was also the closest thing Torchwood had to a jail. Any alien life forms considered a threat to the public were locked up down here.
Only a handful of people had security clearance high enough to even enter the basement: Pete Tyler, Rose Tyler, Jake and Mickey, back in the day. The Doctor, too, if he wanted it – not that “security clearance” had never kept the Doctor out of anything. Normally the Doctor went out of his way to avoid the place. His eyes darkened anytime anyone even mentioned the basement – or worse, locked something up in it.
Now, though, the Doctor barely seemed to register where they were headed as Rose punched in her security clearance. He was still gripping her hand tightly, but he wasn’t saying anything; his entire being seemed focused on getting to the Master as soon as possible.
Ten/Rose, ~2000 words, Teen-ish
Angst (seriously, it’s like 98% pathos)
EDIT: Constructive criticism and critique welcome on this one — feel free, negative opinions OK, and all that. I promise I won’t take offense.
It’s a curious thing, causality. The possibilities of every microsecond, a spider web of moments, colliding, deflecting, forming probability vertices and bottlenecks of likelihood, or circling back on themselves, cementing fixed points and shunting other streams off into the infinite array of never-weres and might-have-beens.
And, every now and then, there’s the rare binary—one particular instance that spirals around itself, synchronous timelines never intersecting, and with each possibility equal in weight. A double helix of time, branching off from a single choice. Yes-or-no. On-or-off. He-loves-me, he-loves-me-not.
In this case, it’s definitely the former.
Tenth Doctor / Rose touch trajectory through Series 2
This is what happens when a behavioural scientist gets tired of hearing ‘clingy girlfriend’ comments…
For notes and a longer description, see here
Bonus fact: the biggest difference in touch frequencies was in the Rise of the Cybermen / Age of Steel two-parter, where the Doctor initiated touching five times to her one.
Ahh, Miles Richardson and Paul McGann covered in dirt and blood. My favorite.

Casual reminder that when the Doctor did this:
He thought he was kissing Rose goodbye.
but seriously, theta’s going to come to koschei and ushas the next day and tell them zagreus was in their room and they know it was zagreus because when it touched them they saw themself and they saw their next selves and they saw their deaths and they saw the door to nowhere and the endless void of the universe and the end of all and they saw time come apart at the hinges and they saw zagreus itself make it come apart as the divergent universe collapsed because clara saw it all too, and what else could it be but zagreus, come to sit inside their head and eat them while they’re sleeping
#not to mention they saw zagreus scatter itself across their timeline#they saw zagreus scattered throughout ALL THEIR LIVES#always there#always present#tearing itself into little echoes and pieces and fragments so it could burrow deeply into everything theta had ever done and will do#intertwined with their destiny for eternity (x)
As far as Theta knows, Zagreus is coming for them specifically
and really, they aren’t wrong
