Author's Notes:
I don't really know if it's any good. I was making this text for my YouTube wallpaper, and I wanted to use some quotes from the series, but I felt like it wasn't enough, so I mixed the quotes with my own words, and this is what I got.
And I wrote it on December 1st 2008 (and no, I don't know why I had to mention that!)


I had this friend... Rose her name was. Rose. And we were together. I never got to tell her I love her... but I do. I love her so terribly much. I've known since the first time I thought I lost her. She told me it wasn't my fault, and that she wouldn't have missed it for the world.

But I got her back, and tried to protect her from the evils of the world. I wasn't good enough, though. I wasn't strong enough; I couldn't keep her safe. At least not keep her safe and stay with her. It had to be one or the other.

The beast said she would die in battle, and I told her no. I would never let anything harm her again. But then came the battle at Canary Wharf. And I lost. We all lost. But something I will never get over, is loosing Rose. It broke my heart. The love of my life... lost forever.

I told her I would travel on my own. But I didn't; I broke my promise to the woman I love. I kissed other women from time to time, but I couldn't stop feeling guilty. Every single time. After all she was the woman I would always love. Truly love.

And then the most wonderful thing happened. She came back. She came back to find me. She never stopped trying to get back, after saying goodbye. I guess that is one of the many reasons I love her. Seeing her there; at the end of that street. My heart stopped. It was just to good to be true. We ran to each other, but of course something bad would happen. Like always.

She held me in her arms. Crying and telling me not to die. Tried to make me smile and forget about the pain. And it worked. Just seeing her was worth the pain. But then her pain started. I could see her heart break, as I began to regenerate. I couldn't do that to her again. I had to stop the regeneration. And I did.

She was almost in shock, as she announced I was still me. “I'm still me” I said, and saw her heart beginning to heal. But of course the happiness wouldn't last for long. Suddenly there was to of me, but only one of her.

The second me was born in battle. Just like me, when I first meed Rose. So I already knew what to do. I had to let her go back to her parallel world, and take him with her. Cause if anyone could make him better, it was her. My beloved Rose.

She had tears running down her face, and said it wasn't the same, cause he wasn't me. But of course he is. He loves her just as much as me, and I know he will make her happy. So I told her “he needs you — that's very me!” He whispered he loves her, and I knew it was my clue to leave.

I miss her so much. But knowing that she is with “me” being happy, is enough. I will be miserable, but I can comfort myself knowing, that the love of my life is happy and no longer lost. But one thing is for certain; a Rose by any other name, will never smell as sweet. For she is my Rose. Forever.
