“i just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. that there are people living in the light, and singing songs of donna noble, a thousand, million light years away. they will never forget her, while she can never remember. and for one moment… one shining moment… she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.”

He whispers the words in her ear, because it needs saying. Rose pulls him to her, capturing his lips and suddenly they are entwined in a lover’s embrace right there on that bloody beach.

Before the sound of the TARDIS abandoning them destroys the moment, this Doctor with one heart can feel her lips, and taste her. Her arms wrapped around him feel like coming home. And in this onslaught of sensation he can sense the future.

He sees the their timelines, woven together, not nearly as long as he would like (but he doesn’t peek to see how long it is). He sees children,
and love, and life spent together, if she wants. He desperately wants.

The timelines are in flux, though when Rose gazes at the TARDIS slipping away and realizes that they’ve been left. It’s not destroyed, though. It only fluctuates and he has hope that she’ll accept it all.

He holds tight to her, and he holds tight to hope. He rather likes hope, after all.

“Nick comes to the read-through with his ring modulator. And he sets up a little speaker and he sits there, and he patiently waits for the first Dalek line to come around, knowing that when it does and when it first booms across that read-through room he’s going to get a shiver of delight from everyone in the room.” - David Tennant, Doctor Who Confidential “Friends and Foe”
