Chapter 209: Cool World
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 189: David Bowie – Real Cool World at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor takes Rose somewhere that’s really cool.

In Rose’s opinion, the Doctor needed to brush up on his earth slang. When she’d said she’d like to go someplace really cool, this wasn’t what she’d meant; even dressed in thick furs she felt chilly.

On the other hand, this was amazing, a world where even the seas were ice, waves towering above them, frozen solid before they could crash against the shore. It was like the universe’s biggest ice-sculpture, its scale so immense she simply couldn’t grasp its enormity. Never had Rose felt so tiny.

It might not have been what she’d expected, but it was definitely cool.
