I've been thinking about a historical for a while and with the encouragement of timelord1 , who_in_whoville and aintafraidnoghosts here it is.

As always, thanks to who_in_whovile, aintafraidanoghosts and timelord1 for their continued support. This chapter - things are starting to happen. Their enemies are closing in on the Doctor and Rose. The next two chapters will be very fast paced. Yes, this ends in a cliffie. I already have Chapters 21 and 22 drafted so chapter 21 will be up soon and chapter 22 will probably follow a day or two later.

21. Chapter 21 by Kelkat9 [Reviews - 3] (6703 words)
This chapter starts out a little tense but it ends on a pretty happy note. Um, chapter count changed due to writing explosion in chapter 22 which is now two chapters. So, total chapter count will be 24ish. Anyway do enjoy and I should have the next two chapters up tomorrow. Thanks for reading!

22. Chapter 22 by Kelkat9 [Reviews - 2] (4593 words)
This chapter is all about action. The Oncoming Storm lets loose. Chapt 23 is posted pretty much simultaneously. Oh and I will be writing a "missing scene" to explain how the baby was named. It was sort of it's own story.

23. Chapter 23 by Kelkat9 [Reviews - 5] (4437 words)
The Action continues. Cliffie ending alert. Sorry! Final chapter should be up in a day or so.

The final chapter to this story! I had so much fun writing this and am very grateful for all the people who read and reviewed it. Thank you for all your kind reviews and encouragement. Special shout out to my talented and awesome sistahs who helped me along on this story: who_in_whoville who was the most lovely beta ever; timelord1 and aintafraidanotghosts who helped add a special zing here and there along with being moral support.

As you may gather from the ending, there may be a sequel. As a matter of fact, I can almost guarantee there will be and it will be another one set in history. Perhaps the 1920s. I will be working on plotting it out in the coming weeks. Also, I had to cut a few scenes on this one so will be posting some missing scenes as well.

Thanks again and I hope you enjoy this final chapter!
