Graphite pencils

:heart:

Rose: All right both of you, answer me this. When I last stood on this beach—on the worst day of my life—what was the last thing you said to me? Go on, say it.

The Doctor: I said "Rose Tyler."

Rose: Yeah, and? How was that sentence gonna end?

The Doctor: Does it need saying?

Rose: And you, Doctor? What was the end of that sentence?

[He leans closer, takes her arm gently and whispers in her ear] I love you.

:heart:

The following excerpt is borrowed from a fanfiction called "Same As It Ever Was" by onlylyin on LJ. The author captured their relationship beautifully for this moment in time:


She thought of the other Rose who stood just over there, watching her cry. She wished she could tell that other self that the tears were genuine. It almost surprised her, how easily they came. But she cried in the same way that she did during sad old movies, in anticipation of the pain ahead and resignation towards the ending to come. She went through the movements and she knew she was doing the right thing by letting him let her go. She was letting them both choose, in a way.

Donna spoke, and Rose remembered the trick about spoilers - they never revealed all the details of the story. She should have guessed he was human, could have known, but she hadn’t. Not quite. Her fingers slid inside his coat and her eyes met his as she felt his one heart beat under her palm. She not only knew this was right, she began to believe it. This was a man who wouldn't be broken by loving her. This was a man who knew how to swim.

He told her “I love you. Always have, always will.” His lapels were in her hands and she kissed him; she kissed them both. It is her ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ and ‘I love you’ and ‘I know’.

She tasted -his- ‘Forgive me’ on the tip of his ‘Forever’.

:heart:

It may just be that I just finished watching that episode and thus am really emotional right now, but this is absolutely beautiful. I can't even begin to describe how amazingly wonderful this is. Thank you.

This is so beautiful! You captured the tenderness of that moment perfectly.
Love your stuff! You are a woman after my own heart! :) First X-Files, then BSG, now Dr Who.
Did you ever watch Beauty and the Beast? Seems like it would be up your alley.

It was a tv series in the 80s that was a contemporary take on the Beauty and the Beast story, set in New York City. Ron Pearlman played the beast, who was born with cat features and super strength. He was abandoned by his mother and raised by an adoptive father, beneath the city. They built kind of a sanctuary down there for the dispossessed to hide away from society. And Linda Hamilton, who played the beauty, a district attorney, ended up discovering them when the beast rescued her after a violent attack.
It's a great heart wrenching love story because of the situation they're in. Neither can live in the other's world. And, I guess because it smacked too much of beastiality *facepalm*, they couldn't really go too far with the physical stuff. Ergo, much angst.
It was great!

I've been late replying to you because I wanted to look up the name of a fanfic I just finished that I really liked. It's rather (completely) naughty, though. You've been warned!!! Given that - I quite liked the story as well !!! [link]

I'm definitely going to check oh the fic you recommended now that I've finally finished my last one. Thanks for the rec!

That's a nice piece.

Only one small observation that irks me (and don't in any way feel offended it's intended to be a healthy crit) For me the neck area has been a little over treated. It looks a little too saggy and ages Tennant/Human Doc more than necessary.

But the likenesses are really well done.
