This was written for @doctorroseprompts, and their prompt(s) of: alien beaches (from last week), and bikini Rose/shirtless Doctor, where they both rub sunscreen onto each other.
This takes place the day after this ficlet, but it’s not needed in order to understand this story. Just know that the Doctor and Rose shared their first kiss after The Idiot’s Lantern.
Ten x Rose, ~2000 words, Teen
The Doctor and Rose visit a beach, and they are both given the task of putting sunscreen on each other.
“All right, Rose Tyler! Here we are!”
Rose swung open the TARDIS doors, and she was immediately hit with a wave of heat and humidity. Beyond the doors of the TARDIS was shimmering green sand and an ocean as clear as glass. Humanoids populated the beach they’d landed on, and Rose spun around eagerly to face the Doctor.
All conscious thought left her mind when instead of seeing him dress in a suit, he was dressed in a soft-looking t-shirt and a pair of blue and red pinstriped swim trunks. His bare legs were on display to Rose for the first time—minus the day she’d had to dress him in Howard’s pajamas, but she’d been a little too preoccupied with the fact that her Doctor had become a new man to really pay attention to his body.
They were really gorgeous legs. They were as pale as the rest of his body, but the smattering of dark hair gave the false impression of a tan. They were long and well-defined with muscles that pulled and flexed with every step he took, and they tapered down into boney ankles and his large, pale feet.
This was more skin that Rose had ever seen on display—again, minus that Christmas Eve day—and Rose felt her heart flutter in her chest as her eyes followed his legs up to his narrow waist then up his chest. He looked almost naked in so few layers, but he looked completely comfortable and at ease, and Rose grinned at him.
