    Summary

    "He thinks she looks strong, tenacious, like she could spring into action within seconds of waking, ready to save the universe again in a moment if necessary. She looks like someone who could save him, if such a thing were even possible. He isn’t sure if anything or anyone could ever be capable of patching back together the fragmented pieces of his soul, but the only one who could ever come close is her."

    Set immediately post-Journey's End, the Doctor and Rose spend some time in a hotel in Norway and try to process the irreversible and life-defining events of the previous days.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Specifically, I love this for it's use of physical sensation to root you into the moment. It's a lovely example, for me, of writing that evokes more complex feelings with senses. IE, "Kissing her is stepping into a beam of sunlight". Why do you step into the sunlight? You likely aren't feeling hot when you do so. Maybe you feel a chill, internally or externally. So choosing to step into the light has a purpose, to warm or to cheer, that alludes to a sensation of relief. It's a simple joy, that often has a simultaneously grounding and uplifting effect. So to know that feeling of stepping into sunlight, you can know the Doctor feels warmth, relief, elation and grounded. It also means that the world outside that warmth is still there, so there's even a touch of bittersweet. And the beam of sunlight exists in impermanence. It will always come back again, but even it will go away some of the time. I think it's a great way to describe the moment. As a reader, I immediately recall those sensations, all of them, with just the one sentence written.

    Summary

    Post “Fear Her”. What is there to hide under, what is there to run to or from, when there is no alien plot to foil or disaster to avert, when she has broken down his defenses and he can’t get up but he can’t just lie here either, when the past is clawing at him but leaving and being alone with these wounds is not something he is sure he can bear.

    Beware, this is angsty sad. But it's also a testament to how love acts as invigoration for the strength to go on.

    Summary

    "She grabbed two harnesses, a couple of the carabiners, and some rope from the bag and followed hm out. “Which one’s Shiver?” she asked.

    “Oh, I’m Shake.”

    “Well then, Shake,” she said. “Safety first.”"

    Where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of a cure. Maybe two pounds.
