Title - Everywhere (1/1)
Author - earlgreytea68 
Rating - General
Characters - Ten, Rose, Mickey
Spoilers - "The Girl in the Fireplace."
Disclaimer - I don't own them and I don't make money off of them, but I don't like to dwell on that, so let's move on.
Summary - My addition to the post-GitF genre.  
Author's Note - Thanks to chicklet73  for the beta!

This story has been marinating in my mind for a long time. I admit that I've never minded GitF, this is my bid for its justification.

Everything in this was absolutely perfect! From the fight, to Mickey, to laying out the ground rules, and can I just say that I'm kind of jealous of Rose that she gets that last line? That was just beautiful.

Awww, thank you! I'm frequently jealous of Rose, too. ;-)

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! You WROTE it! You are so awesome and I love your dialog and I love the fact that Rose took a stand even though she knew she was partially in the wrong.

Love Love Love! :D

I *did* write it! Finally! ;-)

I'm glad you enjoyed this. I loved writing Rose as confident not to back down, to know that she was wrong but still didn't deserve to be treated the way the Doctor treated her.

Y'know, Reinette really gets the short straw in all of this, doesn't she. Poor thing. And Mickey, too.

But this was just lovely. Poor broken Ten...

Reinette kind of does. I'm sure she was a very nice person, she was just getting in the middle of a relationship. And Rose did treat Mickey shabbily, poor thing.

And yes, poor broken Ten. His emotional flailing throughout this fic breaks my heart, because I really do think it was happening that way for him.

This is brilliant. The whole episode always leave me with some issue. Like how can in the next episode, the Doctor and Rose and close together again. I LOVE how Rose is standing up and setting rules. So does this mean there is a sequel because I distinctly remember that Brem mentioned something about learning to waltz in Versailles in Planet of the Dead in Chaos and not telling his Mom.

It's true, that they are back to their regular selves in RotC, and I think it only makes sense if you assume that there *had* to be a row between them in between. And, I like to think, especially in the context of the Chaosverse, that Rose did lay down groundrules.

Heh. Rose may forgive him for Versailles, but she never likes the place, ever. ;-)

I've never understood the view that Rose would have just stood for that. I always thought Rose was stronger than that. That's just the Rose that I love.

Glad you enjoyed!

I've always felt there must have been some kind of "air clearing" between GITF and ROTC, as they seem to be just fine together with no explanation.

So I love the way you've written this, it seems so very them and just how I imagine it probably happened too.

Yeah, I agree, it just makes sense, right? There just *had* to be.

I'm glad this rings true for you, I really wanted it to.

This actually makes the episode make sense. I like the episode but it always grated on me that it seemed wrong. This helps. Thank you.

Good one. The Jimmy Stone comparison needed to be drawn. Also, this works as a believable bridge to the Cybermen eps.

Yeah, you've got to think that Jimmy Stone ran through Rose's head, he just had to. I'm glad this works for you!

“Don’t you see? I can’t walk away from you. That’s why I was trying to get you to do it for me.”

This really nails where they were up to at that point - I love it that she set him some limits and reminded him he wasn't the only one that got terrified ("You save the universe for a job!"). Of course, it was right for her to call his bluff. And I like the fact that she brought out Reinette being so many things that Rose is not - educated, cultured, privileged. I really loved Rose in GITF - she showed a lot of intelligence, courage and dignity herself when her emotions must have been all over the place. She deserved better.

So did Mickey, and the way the two of them treated him at the beginning of the following episode has always bothered me. A lot.

I think their relationship frequently gets written as the Doctor being terrified of being hurt. I didn't want it to get lost that Rose also took a HUGE leap in getting involved with him. And he so completely sets Reinette up as an opposition to Rose, there's no way Rose can miss the point of what he's doing. But I loved writing this because it shows Rose growing past it to the point where she stands up for herself and gets him in line and paves the way for the relationship they eventually have.

Yeah, they're terrible to Mickey in the next episode, completely undeserved. But it also makes sense if it follows they had a huge fight and then made it up, because Ten and Rose always did have a tendency to be too wrapped up in each other.

Excellent story! Thank you for writing this. I'm still not fond of TGITF, but this does make it much better.

The dialogue and characterization of all three of them is spot-on. Poor Mickey. He knows it's over between him and Rose, but he is such a decent man he doesn't want to see her hurt. I love seeing him taking the Doctor to task, especially since the prat deserved it. And he knew it. The Doctor knew he was being a prat, and finally had to face the consequences of his actions. Rose will not let the Doctor manipulate her, and good for her! Wish more people had that much sense.

Again, well written story with great characterization. * * * * *

And Mickey is so awesome in this fic. I just adored being able to let him shine a little bit. I don't write him very often, and this was fun. And it's true, the Doctor knew he deserved a lot worse than he got, actually.

Glad you enjoyed!

Oh, YAY!! A GITF fix-it-fic!! And it's brilliant!

I LOVED this. I've been nibbling around this issue myself in many different ways and in many different fics (I even have a WIP that's still nibbling at it), but I've always avoided the Actual Confrontation Scene between them because I just didn't think I could believably write his explanation. Now I don't have to, because you've done it for me. Simply wonderful! *goes to store in mems!*

Thank you! I love a good GitF fix-it fic! ;-)

And yeah, once I was able to crystallize in my head why the Doctor did what he did, this fic kind of wrote itself.

This is probably the best one. Going through that myself. You are amazing! It goes to show that even the Doctor and Rose have their issues when it comes to their relationship.

Thank you! And yes, they do have their issues, and it is much more fun to write them than it is to live them!
