"Rose."

She stirred slightly, and murmured in her sleep.

"Rose, wake up."

She opened one eye slowly, then the other, and looked up at the Doctor. She blinked at him as her brain processed the kilowatt grin on his face. Finally, the right message got to her, and she turned over and buried her face in the pillow.

"Rose, it's time to get up! People to see! Places to go! Things to—ooh..."

"Not yet," she muttered.

"But Roooose! Adventure! Excitement! Danger!"

Wham! He yelped as she swung the pillow into his face.

She smirked. Waking her was dangerous enough.


SNAPSHOT: Rose and the Doctor are in Rose's bedroom. The Doctor is looking stunned, and Rose is sleeping, with a self-satisfied smile at the corner of her mouth.

"Rose."

She turned into the covers, muttering something incoherent.

"Rose, wake up."

She yawned, stretched, and opened her eyes. Her gaze flicked from the serious look on his face to his coat to the sonic screwdriver in his hand.

"Oh, no," she said, and pulled the covers up over her head.

"Oh, yes. It's time for another adventure!"

"Not this early, it's not," she grumbled. "I was having such a lovely dream. Don't suppose you'd let me get back to it?"

"Fine," he said, folding his arms and sulking. "Be that way. See if I care."

She was already asleep.


SNAPSHOT: Rose and the Doctor are in Rose's bedroom. The Doctor is all ready for the next great adventure, with his coat on and his sonic screwdriver at the ready, but he's standing looking away from Rose and pouting. Rose, on the other hand, is fast asleep, smiling at her lovely dream.

"Rose."

She shifted slightly in her sleep, and her hand found his. Her mouth turned up in a smile.

"Rose, wake up."

She blinked her eyes open. He was sitting next to her, a gentle smile on his face. "Good morning," she said softly, and closed her eyes again.

"You're not supposed to go back to sleep!" he protested, laughing.

"Mm," she sighed.

"Come on, Sleeping Beauty," he said. "Wake up."

She just burrowed deeper into the covers. He leaned down. "I think I know what'll wake you up."

"But I don't want to."

"Sorry," he breathed, and kissed her.

SNAPSHOT: Rose and the Doctor are in Rose's bedroom. Rose is under the covers, and her eyes are closed. The Doctor is sitting on the edge of her bed, holding her hand and pressing his lips gently against hers. They are happy.
