Rose’s green bunny slippers took turns hopping as she shifted her feet just outside the Doctor’s study. She’d tried really hard, honestly, to eat and go to bed as she told him she would. She failed miserably at both of these tasks. Her plate of leftover chips was still sitting in the galley’s microwave, and as far as going to bed went, all she’d managed to do was change into a pair of loose-fitting pyjama bottoms. To be fair, she hadn’t made much of an effort in the way of taking care of herself since they’d returned to the TARDIS this time. Her mind was a busy beehive of activity that couldn’t be made to calm down no matter how hard she tried (which she really, very seriously wasn’t doing at all).

Teaspoon, Ao3

Once everyone had left apart from the Doctor, Rose flopped down on the sofa.

“It’s not quite bedtime for you yet, Rose Tyler,” the Doctor said, as he came back into the sitting room with a glass of water for her and a glass of wine for himself.

She failed to stifle her yawn, but sat up and took her drink obligingly. “Why’s that, then?”

“Got another Shondarian tradition to do.”

Rose laughed. “You really took a shine to their culture, didn’t you?”
