Disclaimer: Doctor Who and all characters are property of the BBC. I do not own them nor make any money from them. I only spin stories for my own amusement and the entertainment of others. Any original characters are mine.

Notes: This story contains romance, but it is not fluff. And while it is not a Shakespearean tragedy, neither is it a Disney fairy tale. It is a rather emotional journey with laughter, tears, and a lot of questions with complicated answers. When it comes to characters and endings, I am not Moffat or Whedon or George R. R. Martin. But I am not Jane Austen either. Take from that what you will.

The title, "The Way We Were," is based on the song with the same title. It is a beautiful song performed by Barbara Streisand and I recommend you look up the lyrics or listen to it on YouTube to understand the inspiration for the "misty water colored memories of the way we were." Many of the lyrics will loosely reflect Rose's internal struggle.

There is a tiny reference to Calendar Girl in there. All my stories happen in the same personal universe.
