I felt the need to make things a bit more informal, so from now on, Miss Tyler is simply; Rose

I hardly ever write according to a plan, therefore I have no idea where the story will go. But I believe the next one will be a bit more light-hearted ;)

It will probably give me some sleepless nights in trying to make 19th century Rose become comfortable with al the Doctor's thimey-whimey stuff ;)

I finally found the UK spelling editor, so I took the liberty of correcting the previous chapters as well.

Oh, and I do apologize ;)

The wedding ceremony is copied and adapted for this story from The Book of Common Prayer – 1559.

Now I am in need of some inspiration; there are a whole lot of wonderful ideas about how a Gallifreyan marriage ceremony would be, but nothing official. The only reason I can think of, why 11 used a piece of cloth with River, was so they would not be hurled through time before they were actually wed.
I can come up with some ideas myself, but I would very much like to build on some new ideas as well.
So, if you would honour me with your thoughts about intimate, ancient, ceremonial bonding traditions, fit for a Time Lord, I would be very grateful.

These last two chapters sort of wrote themselves, first things first, romance later ;)

The end of the story is near.
You have undoubtedly noticed the change of language, it was not entirely intentional, it just happened along the way and it felt good, cause the Doctor is the Doctor and even though the language of Jane Austen is beautiful, it seemed not very befitting inside the TARDIS.

Here it is, the final chapter, gave me quite some trouble this one. There will be a short epilogue afterwords, completing the story in style.
It is a longer chapter, I didn't want to sever it in half, but I'm sure you won't mind ;)

The end.

Many many thanks for all the wonderful reviews, compliments and ideas along the way. You have been my motivation and drive to continue much longer than I had anticipated.
