episode fic meme: Rise of the Cybermen/Age of Steel
Ages back I did a meme where people sent me DW episodes and I wrote a ficlet relating to it. pulledacross gave me “Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel” and… now four months later, it’s finally done.
~1500 words of mostly fluff.
The Doctor lingered in the hallway by the door to Rose’s bedroom, unsure what he ought to do next.
They’d been staying at Jackie’s for two days now, ever since the TARDIS had made it back to its rightful universe with one fewer occupant. Rose had spent most of that time with her mother or her friend Shareen, and the Doctor had done his best to give her a wide berth. Accident or not, it was his TARDIS that had landed them on that parallel Earth, and that meant he was partially responsible for the fallout.
He’d hoped some time back home would help her recalibrate, but he was beginning to wonder if that had been a mistake. Maybe being here was just causing her to wallow. Perhaps they’d be better off traveling, reminding her what good the TARDIS had to offer. That was the conventional wisdom about horse riding, wasn’t it? If you let one fall deter you, you might stop riding altogether.
Or maybe those were his own insecurities bleeding through.
This might be precisely what Rose needed. What did he know? His own coping mechanisms certainly weren’t always ironclad. Maybe what was best for Rose would be if he backed away unnoticed and left her in peace.
"I can feel you staring, you know," she said, gesturing with her head for him to come join her.

I’ve been laughing at this for three years
I just realized that Rose is stuck for the rest of her life with a man who occasionally talks like Donna Noble
I DIDNT THINK ABOUT THAT UNTIL I SAW THIS POST OMG
