Ten/Rose: Call of the Void | Ch 4
Rating: teen & up (secondary character death)
Genre: Reunion fic, dimension-hopping rose, hurt/comfort, romance
Summary: The Doctor and Rose reunite, but of course it can’t be that simple. An ancient TARDIS entraps them at the edge of the newly formed universe, and is determined that only one of them can escape alive. A sacrifice must be made, and this time it’s the Doctor that has to give up everything to be with the woman he loves.
Beta: @lostinfic, who is as dear of a friend as she is valuable as a beta.
Note: This fic was originally outlined years ago to be a 15 chapter-long story, but I reworked it to a shorter version that fits the Doomsday Month prompt at @doctorroseprompts for reunion where they both end up in Pete’s World. Part coincidence, part fate!
The Doctor and Rose stepped out to the ancient TARDIS in unison. In the brief interim between mid air and a successful in-sync landing, the Doctor was reminded of how stark and small his trainers looked against the immensity of space. Iridescent coral became a dark pit in his mind’s eye. The pull to descend had been powerful, but not nearly as mesmerising with Rose at his side. Her safety and her very existence usurped that urge. He’d spoken her name to the infant universe, so was this the response? Rose at his side, but besieged from all sides by chaos.
