It was supposed to be a temporary arrangement. Rose was going to move in with her boyfriend just as soon as Mickey saved up enough money and John was going to go on that trip around the world he had been planning for years. They met through Donna, John’s cousin and Rose’s co-worker, who made the suggestion that since they both needed a place, they get a flat together. He shrugged, she shrugged, and they moved in together.
It didn’t take many days to discover that they were complete opposites. John liked to be up and about at the crack of dawn, Rose would shuffle out of bed at half-eleven if she could. He dusted things and organized the spices in the kitchen by order of height; she was lucky if her shoes and socks made it past the front door, let alone into her bedroom. He could create a culinary masterpiece from cinnamon and rice; she had the numbers memorized of all the take-out places that delivered in their area. However, oddly enough, it worked. He groused about cleaning up after her and she encouraged him to slow down and enjoy life. He dragged her out of bed to see the sunrise from the rooftop, she helped him discover the nightlife of her favorite clubs.
Their rental agreement was month-to-month and for the first few, it was an awkward discussion, would they continue? Should they? What if Mickey came up with a place? What if John finally quit his job to leave? Eventually, the discussions tapered off and ceased entirely. They were settled, comfortable, happy, and if and when things needed to change, they would cross that bridge at that time. For now, they were perfectly content with how things were.
Three months turned into six and then nine and still the temporary arrangement continued. People talked because that’s what people do. John and Rose ignored them. They weren’t like that; they were just friends. Rose was in a relationship with Mickey, and eventually planning on moving in with him, even if he came around less and less often. John was still saving up for his trip around the world, the one from which he wasn’t really planning on returning, even if he had sort of stopped reading brochures and visiting travel sites. And in the meantime, well, talk was cheap and the best form of entertainment and it wasn’t bothering anyone, no, really, it wasn’t.
One year to the day that they got the flat was a Friday night and they decided to stay in. There was wine, there was more wine, there was chips and repeats of a show neither of them cared about, and there was snogging. Drunk, happy, lazy snogging that turned into drunk, happy, lazy shagging that turned into waking up naked on the living room floor in utter horror together. John stammered out an apology and vanished into his bedroom and Rose retreated to hers and there was complete silence.
When Rose finally emerged cautiously from her room it was to discover a note from John with more apologies and the receipt from his ticket to Spain. She stared at the slips of paper in disbelief before storming into her bedroom and shoving some clothes into a suitcase. Three hours and forty-five minutes later she disembarked a plane in Barcelona, marched into the airport bar, and slapped John hard across the face. He gaped up at her in silence while several people politely wondered if they needed to fetch security to take away this crazy woman.
He was still sitting in complete silence when she grabbed him by the lapels of his jacket and hauled him to her, kissing him hard. It took him a few heart-stopping seconds to respond, but by the time they parted, several people were not-so-politely wondering if they needed to fetch security for an entirely different reason. When they could breath again, John grinned at her, held out his hand, and whispered, “Run.” And they did. Clear around the world.

Miracle at the Powell Estate
Summary: Rose and Jackie drag the Doctor to every Christmas party in London. Some poorly placed mistletoe puts Rose in a compromising situation.
A/N: Written for rinaway for the DW SS fic thingy. I only took parts of your prompt(s), hope you like it!

After much convincing, The Doctor had agreed to spend Christmas at Jackie’s flat. And by much convincing, he meant a smile and three bats of Rose’s long lashes. He was wrapped around her finger, and he knew it. He couldn’t bring himself to care. Even though he should…the last Time Lord bending to the whims of a young female human. Well, they didn’t know Rose Tyler. He was fairly certain that even Rassilon himself would agree to dinner at Jackie’s if Rose smiled at him just so.
A selection of Doctor/Rose AU fics…
Basically, I felt like it? Might have seen some of these in the Nine/Rose or Classic (and Twelve)/Rose lists but this is just Alternate Universe fics. Um, it doesn’t include role swaps, alternate meetings, alternate Doctors/Roses or crossovers. Maybe another list, but this has all human, movie, supernatural style etc fics. Also, no WIPs, sorry…. Anyway, enjoy!

"That should be all, Mrs. Solverson," the Doctor said as he pulled away the stethoscope. "You’re free to go."
"Thank you, doctor," she said as her husband sagged in relief. "Thank you for everything."
"It was my pleasure," he said warmly. "You take care of your wife now, and make sure she sticks to her diet. Consult the chart I gave you last week and everything should be fine."
After hugs and another round of gratitude, the couple left. The Doctor rubbed his temples for a moment before walking out the door, smiling absently at one of the nurses.

the hunger games meme || (2/10) characters » Finnick Odair
↳ “It’s something to see Finnick’s transformation since his marriage. His earlier incarnations – the decadent Capitol heartthrob I met before the Quell, the enigmatic ally in the arena, the broken young man who tried to help me hold it together – these have been replaced by someone who radiates life. Finnick’s real charms of self-effacing humor and an easygoing nature are on display for the first time.”
