Story: Should I Stay
Author: valforeverblue
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 41703
Author’s Summary: So many years have passed since she was left behind with a clone of the man she loved. Desperate to return home, Rose Tyler was ready to do whatever it takes to make that happen. But something unexpected happens. She suddenly finds herself back in her own universe on a beach that resembles the very one she was visiting. And there, standing a short distance from her, was the Doctor.
Characters/Pairing:11th Doctor, Rose Tyler, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Brian, Williams
Warnings: None

Recced because: It doesn’t let the Doctor off the hook for just leaving Rose and the Metacrisis at Bad Wolf Bay without considering whether that was what they wanted, too. It tells a heartbreaking story of what happened to Rose and her family after the Doctor left them there, and how she comes to find him again, albeit in a different body than the one she knew him in. It also gives an interesting look into what Amy and Rory think of this newcomer to their group, and how they feel about her relationship with the Doctor as it relates to River Song.

Author's Summary: In which Brian asks and the Doctor answers... maybe.
Characters/Pairings: Brian Williams, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None
Recced because: This is at once a sweet domestic moment and a very sharp character observation. The Pond family leads very strange lives, and this conversation between Brian and the Doctor, while Rory looks on, highlights that. Thoughts of absent friends, things that are hard to explain to your parents, and guilt that can't really be helped are all in play here, softened somewhat by the warmth of family and touches of gentle humor. It's short but very insightful, and the prose is spare and lovely.
