Full of Light by converse_universe [Reviews - 130]
1st IN THE SERIES. Who are THEY, and what do they want with the broken man and the ordinary girl? As ideas twist perceptions, how can you tell what is real and what isn't? It's just about enough to drive someone insane, control them, change them, or maybe it IS enough? A race against time begins as one ordinary girl struggles to save an extraordinary man. When does time run out? When his regenerations do.

Goodbye by converse_universe [Reviews - 167]
SEQUEL TO FULL OF LIGHT but *could* stand alone. When Rose attempts to say goodbye to the life she'd lost and the man she'd never see again, she doesn't get the chance, at least not yet. Instead, she looks in her mirror and her life changes, again. Rose Tyler has seen terrible things before, but never before has it hit her this hard. As Rose and Mickey try desperately to save the Doctor, they discover that their friend is missing much more than Rose, and far more than his life is at stake. **Takes place ignoring series 4. So post series 3**
