Romantic (With a Lowercase R)
PG; Rose/Ten2, alt!Donna
Besides, Rose was quite certain if there’d ever been a human celebration crafted to make the Doctor uncomfortable, it was probably Valentine’s Day.

Some Sort of Time Lord Code
PG; Donna, Ten
She asks because she’s curious. She asks because she doesn’t know what "lost" really means. She asks because she remembers the crack in his voice when he’d said the girl’s name, and she asks because maybe the universe had its own plans for Rose, too.
PG13; Rose/Ten2, alt!Donna

Tony accepts the man in the hallway as the same flesh-and-blood action hero from all Rose’s stories, full stop.

Say Goodnight and Goodbye
PG13; Donna, Ten2
For the first time, she wonders how you deal with a love triangle when two of the parties are the same person in every way that counts. Not for the first time, she wonders what the Doctor did to the universe to make it so hell-bent on tormenting him.
