Because I Want To
Relationship: Nine x Rose
Summary: The Doctor and Rose inadvertently land on Valentine’s Day. A very interesting discussion follows…
Notes: This is my (almost late) response to the @timepetalsprompts monthly prompt “Doctor x Rose- Valentine’s Day’ on Tumblr. So this didn’t turn out the way I expected at all…soooo…sorry about that. The Doctor and Rose made me do it! This isn’t meant to be anti (or pro) Valentine’s Day or judge anyone for what they do/don’t celebrate,…it’s just what sort of wrote itself, really. I hope you like it, despite its somewhat odd direction.
Trigger Warning: Single, non-explicit reference to domestic violence.

“Oh, bloody hell!” The Doctor groaned when the first thing he saw outside the TARDIS doors was a busy London street covered in a plethora of hearts and flowers.
For once, they had actually landed in the right time and place- the fourteenth of February, 2023. This was where the TARDIS had tracked the Spelitian anomaly to, and it was where they needed to go. Only, he’d forgotten that the fourteenth of February was a designated day of irritation and sappiness amongst humans for the next several centuries.
“Valentine’s Day,” he muttered in exasperation.
“What?” Rose poked her head out of the TARDIS and he resigned himself to dealing with a cooing, sighing companion for the day. Humans always made such a huge fuss about the day, especially humans of Rose’s time.
However, her reaction was far from what he expected.
