headcanons about tentoo, rose and their babies?

omg my fave topic

  • tentoo & rose have like five years of travelling the world/saving the world/consulting for torchwood/having a lot a LOT of sexy adventures, before baby #1 is conceived 
  • by accident 
  • on a field trip in a tent in some forest in the middle of nowhere
  • initially, predictably, they are Terrified, but they also know that now it’s happened………..they want this new exciting adventure
  • they really, really want it
  • tentoo is an absolutely a+ dad-to-be, doing all the cliche running out to grab whatever rose is craving that day & massaging her tired muscles & taking photos of her bump as it gets progressively larger
  • ofc he puts all those photos together like a flipbook
  • his doctor tyler video diaries become outrageously domestic & also skyrocket in popularity. he is now a youtube sensation. he is bewildered by this (but vain enough to be delighted by #hotdadfame)
  • rose tyler buys the incoming baby tiny baby converses & tentoo is Overwhelmed
  • they bicker for months about what they are gonna call her
  • rose vetoes some truly ridic suggestions that come from tentoo’s lips
  • they eventually agree on one they both love, literally five seconds before rose goes into labour
  • the labour is long and tentoo is impatient and rose tyler has no time for his impatience because this is bloody painful
  • she tells him this is the one & only time he’s doing this to her
  • the baby girl is put into her arms & she’s like. …..ok maybe it’s worth it
  • tentoo tells her he wants a brood of them
  • they settle for two more, one boy and another little girl, each 2 years apart
  • raising 3 children is stressful & wonderful & they take them all over the world
  • they learn words from so many languages and become proper cultured and cool and the envy of all their friends at school
  • tentoo and rose are known as super cool parents to their kids’ friends, and their kids’ friends’ parents…..only rose and their family know the truth aka she is the cool one and he is a massive dork
  • their youngest daughter asks them one day how they knew they were ~meant to be, because she’s just had her heart broken for the first time. she’s four. 
  • rose tries not to laugh, and cuddles her close, and tentoo delves into his bigger-on-the-inside pockets and shows their little girl a stash of random things he’s collected in his jacket pockets over the years. things that mean a lot, things that remind him of rose, photobooth pictures & train tickets & baby scans & post-it notes they’ve conversed with via the fridge
  • they don’t really answer her question with words because how can they? they just are
  • their little boy idolises his uncle tony tyler & pretends he doesn’t idolise his sisters (he does)
  • one strange, mad day, a spaceship crash-lands ten miles away. the occupant is safe, thank goodness. the occupant is jenny
  • tentoo is Overwhelmed again, to discover she’s still alive; rose is assigned to research the crash site and finds her, unharmed, and is the one to tell tentoo the news, bringing their new family member home for tea & introductions
  • jenny decides to stay in this parallel universe, as inexplicable as her journey there has been. she likes this dad of hers and she likes rose tyler and she likes her little sister’s teacher miss oswald very, very much
  • tentoo and rose cuddle and kiss and tease and laugh in front of their children all the time; those kids are sometimes grossed out by this, sometimes shyly proud - that their parents are so loved and loving
  • the kids see them fight sometimes too - when they furiously disagree about how to deal with parenting strife xyz, whispered voices raising in the kitchen; the kids don’t really hear the other fights, the ones out of fear when whoever’s done something daft on a mission nearly endangers themselves
  • luckily they don’t hear the making-up they do, either
  • …hopefully.
  • baby #3 does question the marks on her mummy’s neck one time, but they hastily change the subject to Peppa Pig
  • tentoo and rose aren’t perfect. they mess up, they fall out, they make up; they sigh and groan and laugh and blush, and it’s hard, but it’s fun, and they love their life
  • and mostly they’re a team, always; co-parents & co-pilots & co-workers, and they have each other’s back
  • their children know this, always; they’re a family who looks after one another to the max
  • tentoo knows what it’s like to have a childhood full of loneliness, embarrassment, fear & sadness
  • their children do not
