Summary: From a dingy hotel in Norway, the Doctor and Rose realise something has gone wrong. A timey-wimey interpretation of Turn Left.
Excerpt: She’s analyzed every child’s chalk drawing, every line of graffiti, advertisements, and toilet stalls. She’s even walked into a hotel once and looked at the guest book, studied the scrawled row of names and dates. She had longed for those two words, yearned for them, as if they could replace the three that she had never had the chance to hear.
Author's notes: We say "AU", but it could maybe be canon if you disregard a line or two in JE and squint a little. The title is a line from T S Eliot's "The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock", because we're trendy like that, apparently. Much of what you recognize is borrowed from Turn Left, but this is not by any means a simple Turn Left recap. (banner by wild_sibyl)
