1. Chapter 1 [Reviews - 21] (1982 words)
Though involving a possible reunion, this story will not go the route of Journey’s End. The set-up for this deviation from canon was explained in the previous story Minutes and Hours. In short, Rose will not have to face the dilemma of two Doctors. She’s going to have her hands full attempting to contend with just one. ;) It also means the Dimension Cannon is going to have a more difficult time finding success with the walls of reality still intact. So a little outside help might be in order…

This will be the final multi-chapter installment to the series that began with Kings and Lords so it feels somewhat bittersweet. But I’m excited to finally bring these two full-circle. I hope you enjoy their journey!

A look at the flip side.

Now…where were we? ;) Things get a bit steamy, but not explicitly so.

17. Chapter 17 [Reviews - 16] (3687 words)
Happy New Year, my dear Who friends! And endless thanks to those of you who’re reviewing, no matter how detailed or brief, letting me know you’re there when I update. You’re the ones who’ve kept me doing this into 2014, far longer than I ever imagined.

20. Chapter 20 [Reviews - 14] (3169 words)
A bit more Donna time just before the Doctor and Rose dive into the deep. I have to say, Donna/Rose are a blast to write together! :D

21. Chapter 21 [Reviews - 14] (3994 words)
This and the chapter to follow were originally planned as one, but had to be split to make it more manageable…and so you wouldn’t have to wait twice as long. ;)

At last…

28. Chapter 28 [Reviews - 15] (3017 words)
Nearly there now! And heads-up that next week's update will be posted separately, rated Adult, so as not to up the entire story rating for one (albeit significant!) chapter.

29. Epilogue [Reviews - 21] (1815 words)
As promised at the conclusion of the previous story, this ties in to the epilogue of Minutes and Hours, seen now from the flip side, coming full-circle at last. As such, you might wish to re-read that epilogue as a refresher.

There may be one-shots in the future, but as of now I’m satisfied that this series is complete. Enormous thanks to everyone who has reviewed encouragingly along the way. You’re truly the ones who kept me updating each week!

As for future writing, I’ll be taking a hiatus for a bit as time constraints increase. But I’ll still be writing for my own enjoyment when able, and won’t rule out sharing some of it from time to time if reader interest in our beloved Ten/Rose remains. :)
