A/N: Yes, yes, I know, this has been a long time coming! The reason being, I didn't think I would be able to write it. But I'm gonna have a crack at it, so...yeah. For those of you who don't know, the 'previously' part is from my story 'Doomsday Alternate Scene'. The story is set immediately where we left off.


"You're not...?" the Doctor asked, surprised. Rassilon, he hoped not. Not his Rose, he couldn't do that to his Rose...

"Yeah. Yeah, I am. Three months gone. And before you ask, yes it's yours." Rose replied quietly, trying not to cry.

"Oh, god, Rose. I'm sorry, I'm so sorry." The Doctor murmured. And in that split second, staring at Rose standing on the Norwegian beach, her hair being whipped into a frenzy by the wind, tears rolling down her cheeks, he knew what he had to do. "Rose, stand back. I'm coming through. Properly." The Doctor announced.

"But you said you couldn't, you said both worlds would collapse!" Rose reminded him of what he had said only minutes before.

"So?" the Doctor replied, smiling weakly. "Rose, I can't just leave you and the baby there on your own. I wanna be with you. Both of you. Now stand back." The Doctor told her. Rose did as she was told, knowing the Doctor was determined. The Doctor pointed the sonic screwdriver at something out of view and he vanished...

Only to appear seconds later, as a sharp crack echoed through the air, he landed in a pile at Rose's feet. She hurriedly hauled him upright. "Are you alright?" she asked gently, hugging him.

"I'm fine. And I guess now would be a good time to say it. Rose Tyler, I love you!" the Doctor announced, hugging her tight.

"I love you too, Doctor." Rose replied, smiling through her tears.


The Doctor and Rose were so caught up in their hug that they failed to notice Jackie approaching them. When Jackie reached them, she cleared her throat purposefully, and had to stifle a laugh when the Doctor all-but leapt away from her daughter.

"So, you're really here then." Jackie stated.

"Yes." The Doctor replied, gulping.

"And you're not gonna go running off?" Jackie asked.

"Couldn't even if I wanted to. I programmed the TARDIS to close the breach the second I came over here. She's stuck on the other side of the void." The Doctor explained sadly.

He shuffled closer to Rose, unwilling to move too fast as he didn't fancy being slapped by Jackie.

"Good." Jackie replied. Then she grinned. "Come on, then, it's flipping freezing here, let's get back to the Jeep!"

And with that, Jackie turned and walked back to the Jeep, leaving a stunned Time Lord in her wake.


It was funny, the Doctor mused, out of everything he'd seen in the Universe, out of all the monsters he'd seen, he was most terrified of his companion's mother. The Doctor was now sat in the back of the Jeep with Mickey while Pete carefully navigated the tight Norwegian roads that led away from the bay. The Doctor had been shocked at how casually Pete and Mickey had accepted the fact that the Doctor and Rose had both admitted their love for each other and the Doctor was now living in 'Pete's World' with them. However, the Doctor had also been quite pleased that they accepted his arrival with ease; while Mickey had merely whispered quietly to him "Take care of her, Boss.", Pete had obviously accepted Rose as his daughter in the few short weeks he had lived with Rose, as he gave the Doctor the customary 'protective father' talk about how, if he upset Rose, he would have to answer to him. The Doctor had silently nodded and given his word to both men before climbing into the back of the Jeep.


They had been driving for several hours now, and night had fallen. The three men had agreed to take it in turns driving so they could all get a few hours' sleep, like Jackie and Rose were currently doing. The Doctor sat behind the wheel of the Jeep, driving through the pitch dark roads. He had been taking his turn driving for roughly forty-five minutes now, and that had given the Doctor plenty of time to start planning his future. However, it was then that it had hit him. He was becoming domesticated. Rose Tyler, human being, had managed to domesticate him, the last of the Time Lords, the Oncoming Storm. He supposed he'd have to get a job; after all, it was his job to support Rose and their unborn child. The Doctor smiled slightly at that. For ages, even before his regeneration, he had dreamed of being with Rose in that way, but never thought it was possible. And now it was coming true. But at the cost of everything he had known...

A/N 2: Ok, that's chapter one. Should be writing some more soon :)
