A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive

I got into the Doctor Who series a while back but refused to read or write fanfiction for it because I thought it was perfect the way it was (yay RTD! Doctor/Rose = OTP!).
And then came Doomsday and Journey's End.
Anything written here is my way of venting about that.

The Shortest Life
"He never intended to survive, but somehow she always saved him."
A story that looks at the development of Rose and the Doctor's relationship that we didn't get to see. Part coda, but mostly just an excuse for extra Doctor/Rose adventures and romance.

Author Update: 03/04/2014 - I would very much like to apologize for the long wait between chapters. Iíve been running around like crazy the past few months since finishing up uni to prepare for my upcoming move to the UK. Thatís right, ladies and gents, Iím headed to the Land of Who. Very exciting stuff, but also very busy, so thatís why I havenít had a chance to write very much in the way of new chapters. That being said, I have managed to tweak and rewrite the first bunch of chapters in this, and get this chapter up. Yay me. If I can manage to put more up before I head over, great, if not, wait til next month after Iíve settled in. As always, thanks for reading!

The Shortest Life by ErtheChilde [Reviews - 17]
The Doctor never intended to survive the loss of his people and planet. Likewise, he never intended for Rose Tyler to be more than just a temporary companion. However, as always, Timeís plans are a little different from his own. Seeking redemption and respite from his past deeds, the Doctor accepts a final task as Timeís Champion and takes on Rose as a new companion. Despite the instant connection they share share, the first days of their friendship are heavily marred by the shadows of the Time War and a quest. As the Doctor struggles to heal his damaged psyche, Rose faces her own challenges in adapting to a universe that is much more complex than she ever imagined.
