Forget Me Not

When the TARDIS takes the Doctor (that'd be the tenth, ladies and gents) and Rose to an obscure little cottage in the middle of nowhere, they are faced with a dangerous alien, as the Doctor always is, and the underlying relationship that all of us Whovians know exist between the Doctor and Rose comes into the light. It's the story that Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat would never give their fans the satisfaction of seeing- but that's what I'm here for. Allons-y!


7. Two Trains of Thought

The Doctor was so preoccupied with trying to sort out the cacophony of thoughts whizzing through his head about Rose that he almost didn't notice the perfect weather he was walking through. Wispy clouds, flowers sprouting, birdsong and buzzing bees- wasn't there snow two feet deep the night before? There wasn't a single trace of the snowstorm that had taken place, and the Doctor had a feeling that it all related back to the peculiarities with that cottage. Although they hadn't discussed it, the Doctor knew he was going to investigate Room 5, and Rose was going to insist on going with him. No, if wouldn't be safe, no, she shouldn't go with him, but no, he couldn't stop her. One way or another, she was going to come with him wherever he went for as long as she possibly could.   

The Doctor also knew that Rose was going to approach him about what happened sooner or later because she was a very up-front kind of girl; one of the reasons he adored her. However, he had no clue what to say in response to her questions to justify why things shouldn't keep going like they were. Yes, he loved her. Yes, he loved what happened between them. But no, a Time Lord cannot be with a human. It's never been done before, and the Doctor didn't know what would happen if things progressed, so he had to stop- for Rose's safety. He had not the slightest idea how a human body would react to a Time Lord's... well... yeah. He felt awkward thinking about it, so how was he going to handle talking about it? He shoved the thought out of his mind when he almost walked right in to the TARDIS, so caught up in his thoughts that he didn't see it standing in front of him. He opened it, entered, and flew her to ten minutes into the future in Room 4, to give Rose the time she wanted, for what reason he didn't know.   

When the TARDIS materialized, Rose was sprawled out on the bed, under her blanket that was also her temporary robe. She had eaten her waffle and finished with a little bit of time to spare, during which she laid back down and imagined what life would be like with the Doctor as more than just his traveling companion. She made up a perfect world where she was a traveling companion, a loyal soul mate, and maybe even the proud owner of a ring crafted from the finest gems and precious metals in the universe; a ring that promised the Doctor's love to her for-  

"Here we are, go on and get dressed, we have a busy day ahead of us!" The Doctor popped out of the TARDIS just as Rose was dreaming up a perfect wedding dress. She snapped out of her daydream and back into reality, shimmying into the TARDIS all wrapped up in her blanket. The Doctor smiled at her unique method of travel, and fell onto the bed sighing that trademark sigh of being in love. As soon as he realized it, however, he gasped, almost using that sharp intake of breath as a way of revoking the sigh and pretending like it never happened. Still unsure about his feelings, he got back up and paced around the room, trying to figure out what they should do next and how to go about finding out why this little cottage was as weird as it was. Blizzards, then perfect weather, a little (seemingly) sweet old lady who runs a bed and breakfast on her own, yet uses a walker... and that thing in Room 5.
