Day After Day AU, pt.1
↳ The same man.
Honestly it took me more than one viewing of Journey’s End and its Confidential to buy into Rose and the Metacrisis. Then, I don’t know what clicked, suddenly they became IT and I just couldn’t seem to get enough of this couple.
Maybe it’s because there’s so much unknown about them but so much we already kind of DO know. They can be anything. They can do anything.And since we left them at the beginning of their journey, we can imagine them — the Doctor and Rose — on any new adventure we want.
We can imagine them being in their own TARDIS because of the somewhat-canon-deleted-scene of the Doctor giving them a piece of the original. We can imagine them working at Torchwood. We can imagine them living an everyday life. Married and having twins named Gal and Deb. As organic farmers.
They’ll have arguments about ‘HAAAVING’ to go over to Jackie and Pete’s every Friday for dinner. But telling Tony about a trip to an art gallery in the Andromeda galaxy and being kidnapped by anti-robot extremists and seeing Tony’s wide-eyed wonder makes it worth it.
She’ll be a bit annoyed by having to send ANOTHER suit to be dry-cleaned when he comes home after encountering a tourist from the Shuralian system who belatedly discovered that Jammie Dodgers didn’t agree with Shuralian digestive systems. But when the Shuralian sends them a basket of home-baked goods as a thank you and those turn out to be quite the best basket of home-baked goods she’s ever had, she realizes she’s really not all that upset.
Maybe there are parallels of Martha, Sarah Jane, Donna, Wilf, Adelaide, Captain Jack, Gwen, Ianto, and other characters we’ve come to love.
Basically, with them, we can take our imagination…. and RUN!
