Author's Notes:
Rose would have had to wonder if the new Doctor really was who they said he was and how it would affect her future?

I've just learned that words with apostrophes count as an extra word (100 now equals 105!) Oh, well.

Who is this new man? This new Doctor, made from a hand and...Donna? How can he be the same man?

He tells me how, and he offers me his forever. I ask them a simple question. He won’t say, but he whispers those three words into my ear; words I’d never hear from his lips. I kiss him and I know it’s true.

Suddenly, shockingly, he’s gone. Together, we’re alone.

His hand takes mine; it still fits. I look into his eyes and see uncertainty. And hope. I realise then that he’s left me with his greatest gift. Himself.
