Counting Down (9/25)
Summary: Rose manages to persuade the Doctor to participate in one holiday event per day, to count down the days till Christmas. Let’s be honest, all she had to do was ask.
A/N: Huge, huge, huuuuge thanks to my beta, almondina, for her help with this chapter. With out her, this chapter would have been a disaster.
Chapter 9 - And It All Went Downhill from There
Rose pondered the situation for several long minutes. Her initial panic had vanished once she determined the Doctor was alive, knowing his injury would eventually heal. It was time to get down to business. Rose Tyler was no damsel in distress. She had gotten them out of worse situations before, she could handle this. Digging in one of his coat pockets she found a handkerchief, or what she hoped was one, and carefully dabbed at the gash on his forehead to clear away some of the blood. It wasn’t oozing anymore, probably his ‘superior biology’. His superior hearing was going to get a real what for later on. What kind of driving had he called that? He was better at navigating the TARDIS, which was saying an awful lot. After cleaning it up a bit, the wound didn’t look nearly as bad. The impact had probably been worse, she flinched just thinking about how that must have felt.
Treading carefully, she walked a few feet to the right to get a better view of the area. There was still at least a third of the hill to sled down. She could go down alone, get to the TARDIS for supplies, and come back for him. Trying to relocate the Doctor’s body on the massive unfamiliar hillside seemed like a daunting task. She shook her head, that wouldn’t work. There was no way of telling how long trying to find him again would take. She couldn’t risk leaving him vulnerable and out in the open. Even if there was no dangerous wildlife to speak of, he was the last Time Lord. In the wrong hands that would be a fate much worse.
She would have to take his unconscious arse with her. Brilliant. The sled wasn’t exactly made to carry someone who couldn’t stay on themselves, she would have to hold on to him while trying to steer. A million different possibilities ran through her mind, only one sticking out as the most practical way to arrange them on the sled that still allowed her use of her feet. Oh, this was going to be embarrassing. Best to get it over with now while he was still out cold.
Julie Gardner: We’re on St. Mary’s Street in central Cardiff. And it’s a department store that was established in the very first episode of the series, series one - Rose’s department store, Henrik’s.
David Tennant: Rose used to work there.

Can’t you come through properly?
#This moment is when she realizes #That he hasn’t come to get her and take her home to the TARDIS #But that he’s come to say goodbye instead #Look at her eyes in that top gif #At the devastation and sadness there #This was the moment i started my ugly cry #Even though Rose held off until the ”I love you”s (via gallifreyburning)
